*setting timer for 15 minutes*

Aaaaand...Commence blogging NOW!

Fact about Evelyn: She just can't resist New Year's Resolutions.

But what's not to love?

A fresh start. A chance to improve one self. Ambition. Productivity. World peace...

All that except maybe that last one. Because have you seen me when I'm going through sugar withdrawals? There's nothing peaceful about that. And of course this year just like every other year before it you can bet that at the top of my resolutions list is "Get healthy!" which basically translates into "STOP EATING ALL THAT DANG SUGAR WOMAN!"

*glance at timer* 10 minutes left.

This year I'm trying to take it a little easier on myself. My old strategy was to nitpick at every aspect of my life that I wanted to change. Eventually my list ended up being more of a 10 page report that not even world peace could have solved.

This year I'm only allowing myself 3...make that 4 resolutions. My hope is success in a few things will lead to success in more things.

7 minutes and 45 seconds...44...43...42...

Without further adieu, here is my list of 2012 New Years Resolutions:

1. Blog or journal something--ANYTHING--daily. Thus the timer. I'll let you know how it works out.
2. Lose 50 pounds. I lost almost 55 last year. I figure what's another 50, eh? Check out my other blog The Jolly Green Giant for progress.
3. Read the Book of Mormon twice in 2012.
4. Be better at having dinner on the table every night. Healthy, gluten free, dairy free, fast food free, and preferrably sometime before 7:30. My crockpot is already at work this morning so looks like 2012 is off to a rip-roaring start.

3 minutes and 13 seconds...12...11...10...

*Think about life for 37 seconds*
*Break up fight between 6 and 5 year old*
*Pick up screaming baby*

Yay! You are back then. I think one of my resolutions (which I am making right now) is that you and I will FINALLY meet in person, darn it!
You amaze me with your cooking trials. Please teach me! My daughter can't have dairy, and dairy is in everything! Also, I have a horrible addiction to sugar. And then I listened to a podcast (it is also a youtube video) which changed my views. Maybe it can help you too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z5X0i92OZQ

Awww...I love the blogging daily idea. I'm giving up sugar and flour for a couple of months. I was addicted. I'm hoping to blog a little more too. Life got super busy for a while.

Happy New Year!

I love the idea of blogging daily, I wish I had something to say daily... LOL.

I'm with you on the weight thing, I sure wish I was as commited as you. I hope to be. Keep posting about your journey, it motivates me :)

Hi Cee!!!
