New Year's Resolutions

I am actually planning on sticking to these resolutions/goals this year! 

1.  Lose 25 pounds by August 1st. That's roughly 1 lb per week...doable I think. I want to look like her:

2.  Eat breakfast.
3.  Eat at least one vegetarian meal per week for dinner.
4.  Eat at least 5 vegetarian meals per week for lunch.
5.  Start viewing sweets as a privilege not a right.
6.  Start trying to get pregnant by the end of this year.
7.  Finish a guest bedroom, bathroom, and bedroom in our unfinished basement.
8.  Finish flower bed outside this summer.
9.  Workout at least 3-5 times per week.
10.  Go on a Mediterranean Cruise/Italian Vacation this summer.  Has anyone ever done this? I need major advice please!

This isn't an option for me.  Can you remind me of that in 3 months when I've gained 5 pounds instead of lost it?  Thanks so much :)

Well, now I'm off to cook and clean my butt off for a party that we're having on Saturday.  Can't wait to go out tonight for New Year's!

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! You've got some great goals for the new year and I'm excited to read along with you as you try to achieve them. You can do it girl! I also love the recipes you have on here. I can't wait ot make some of them!

  4. I went on a Mediterranean cruise last May. I would recommend not doing the whole cruise thing. You miss a lot of the culture by eating meals on the ship and because you are so limited with your time on land. Plus, the ports are far from some of the major cities, so you spend half your day just travelling into the city and back (i.e. Rome). It just limits you way more than I found enjoyable. If you want more feedback on things email me any questions and I'll get back to you.


Thanks so much commenting! It really brightens my day!
