New Year's Resolutions

Life can change a lot from year to year. I am so excited to see what 2011 brings. I haven't really made new year's resolutions in the past but a lot of bloggers have been posting about them so I figured I'd jump on in.

1) Communicate better. This is kind of broad. I keep in touch with my friends in NC but not as much as I would like. I'm not a big phone person. I'd like to make myself call, chat, and just check in with friends from back home each week.

2) Eat healthier. Let's be serious. I don't plan on giving up candy anytime soon. {speaking of candy, TG filled my stocking with some of my favorites--gummy bears, lindt lindor truffles, & pretzel m&ms} I do want to continue to incorporate as much natural, not-so-processed foods into my diet as possible. Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean proteins are the name of this game.

3)Budget better. I really want to start being more money conscious. I will be trying to use my coupons and make a grocery budget. I will also be trying to limit my trips to Target (and buying crap I don't need).

4) 5K Race. Complete the 5K race coming up in March.

5) 13.1 As in half-marathon. I want to run a half in 2011.
Also in the new year:
I will not sweat the small stuff. I will be in the present. The type of day I have won't be dependent upon a number on a scale. I will be more kind. I will stop to smell the roses and enjoy the little parts of life that make each day special.


  1. no lie, this sounds exactly like my list. haha great minds think alike! good luck with your training for the races - mine will start once i get back from Chicago...yikes! happy new year :)

  2. Sounds similar to mine, too. Did you ever have the crunch m&ms when they were out? I used to love those things, but they're not made anymore. The pretzel m&ms are similar, but just not the same.

    Good luck with the races! I just did my first half in November and loved it!

  3. LOVE THESE!! Thank you for not giving up candy...that is what makes life so great:) WAHOO for the 1/2 marathon, I can't wait to follow your training, you are going to rock it! I love the resolution about communication, that really is the most important thing in life and it is so easy to forget that I constantly need to work on it!

  4. I am definitely the type of girl to sweat the small stuff too. So, I agree that I should make that one of my New Year's Resolutions!

  5. You can do the half marathon girl! Go for it!

  6. i love that heart picture! good luck with these!
