New Years Resolutions

Happy NEW Year to everyone!  It's the time of year that everyone is thinking about all the things they can do to improve this upcoming year.  Personally, I am not a good resolution keeper, however last year I resolved to start running and to really stick to it.  In order to keep myself going I started by signing up for the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k.  Spent the first quarter of 2010 training for that race and ended up finishing right around my goal time.  After that race I knew if I didn't keep running races I'd end up not running at all.  So, I kept signing up and each new race was a new goal for me to meet.  Eventually (and to my amazement) I ended up loving to run.  I actually woke up and wanted to run and exercise.  It got to a point where I was able to use the running as a way to clear my mind and soul and prepare for the day or if I ran in the evening it was a way to wash away the day and just refresh myself.  THEN - I found out I was pregnant in October.  I had every intention of continuing to run throughout my pregnancy and was excited to be the 'pregnant running lady' in my neighborhood!  Well, those hopes were dashed at about 7-8 weeks by some serious first trimester morning, noon and night sickness.  There were days where it took every ounce of will I had to simply get out of the bed and shower.  Needless to say the running went to the wayside.  And boy can I feel it!  I know being pregnant makes you tired anyway, but going from running several times a week to - not running at all - well I think it's taken it's toll, not only on me physically, but emotionally as well.  My "outlet" is gone.  What do I do now?  I don't think it's safe to start running again at this point in my pregnancy.  Especially since I feel so exhausted by simply walking up the dang stairs :(  So, I've resolved to walk.  I live in a great neighborhood and thoroughly enjoy being outside walking up and down the streets.  I used to love running those streets but for now that running is just going to have to wait until this little one is here and Mama's all healed and ready to get her body back! In addition to walking, a few other resolutions I have are pretty basic, nothing I know I can't handle: 1-potty training lil' Cooper, 2-weaning Cooper, 3-teaching Cooper how to go to sleep on his own, 4-keeping up with my blog :) and 5-be the best Mama, wife and friend I can be.  Honestly I could probably list a lot more resolutions I need to make but isn't that how resolutions fail?  Loading too many on yourself and then simply not being able to keep up with all the 'good' you're supposed to be doing?  How about this, I resolve to not expect too much from myself but to be happy with who I am, what I have and where I am in my  life.  That sounds like a heck of a resolution to me.  I think I'll take my word for it and stick to that...

What are your resolutions?
