I'm actually not the type of person who makes resolutions. I don't see the point in waiting for the new year to try to become someone better. If there is something you would like to change their is no better time to change than today. So when I say New Year's Resolutions I am just simply stating my goals that have actually been in place for a while, I am just declaring them to the public.
Having said that, there are 2 major events going on this year.
1.) Transferring through the Coast Guard
2.) Turning 30!
Every time I have had a baby we move. Tobie was 2 months, Miriam was 2 weeks and Emma...well, we moved from one house into another while I was still in the hospital. My point being that whenever we move I am HUGE from just having a baby. So this year is a little different. Hannah was born August 28th, that gives me almost a year to get back into shape. Nursing has been my road block. For some reason my body wants to hang on to the fat while I am nursing. But now I am starting the countdown and I am determined not to move into a new location the size of a barn!
That brings me to my second point. Also this summer I am turning the big 3-0! I'll be older than my mother, since she has been 29 for about as long as I can remember. Everyone is filling my head with how things are going to be different when I turn 30, especially physically. When I speak of getting into shape and the fact that I am turning 30, there's a quick reminder that it's all goint to get a lot harder at 30. Maybe it's a little anxiety kicking in, but I'm feeling the pressure to whip myself into the figure that I want to have for the rest of my life.
So you can see where this is all leading. My goal is to lose this baby fat before we move and I turn 30 which pretty much is happening at the same time. My mantra is 30lbs. by 30! Wish me luck everyone!
That's it for my personal resolutions. I did think of some couple resolutions that I am going to work hard on accomplishing also. Theo and I are going to have a date night every week and also attend the temple together once a month. (That second one was inspired by Lainie. Thanks Lainie!) It's going to be difficult with the nursing baby and all, but I know it will be well worth it in the end.
So that's it for Kara's 2009 resolutions. I wish a good year to everyone and hope everyone else is able to achieve their goals and dreams as well!
