Happy New Decade!

Happy New Year and a New Decade to all of you! I had a nice day yesterday, did some relaxing, did some reading, had a nap.... basically I used yesterday to do some thinking and reflecting on the past year. And planning on the coming year. Thinking about what I wantt o accomplish and the steps I need to get where I want to be.

Very nice.

I hope all of you had a wonderful new Year's Eve and that yoru New Year has started off peaceful, joyous and sweet.

As part of my resolutions and goals for the New Year, I will begin posting here on the blog about my struggle to lose weight, get healthy and quit smoking. Hopefully, if all goes as I plan, I will post once a week with an update on what I have accomplished and what my new goals are. In addition to that, I am jumping back into menu planning. I have hated not knowing what I am cooking for the past month or so! We have eaten more junk food over the past month than in the 3 months prior. I hate that. So unhealthy. AND expensive!

I will be trying to pop over to visit everyone's blogs soon and I will be cleaning up my blog roll and following list over the next week or so. If you are following my blog and I am not following back, please post a comment so that I can come check out your blog! Sometimes, on Google Friends, you cannot follow the link back. I am trying to streamline my blogging to accomodate the new writing I need to be doing.... and still be able to enjoy what all of you have been writing!

Off now to work on my first article for I need to get it done today!

Happy New Year to you as well! Good luck w/ the weight loss and kicking the smoking habit. I hope to lose a few pounds this year, and kick the smoking habit as well. Don't know when I will quit but I will be attempting to at some point this year. I hate smoking!

Happy New Year! I haven't even thought about resolutions for this year yet. Okay, that's not true. I'm attempting to be more fit in the new year. I bought P90x but haven't found my motivation yet. Until I do, maybe I'll stick to Wii Fit. It's fun and fitness all rolled into one!

Happy New Year to you too. Good luck with the resolutions, I quit smoking over 2 years ago myself. It wasn't easy but I haven't faltered since and I'm so happy I did it. I feel so much better now then I ever did then. I'll be joining in the weight loss goal later in the year after the new little one is born I'm sure. Hope all goes well!
