Social media is such a joy around the new year, isn’t it? Sure, we get the flood of ads for cleanses, detoxes, and fitness hula hoops. There are articles about making resolutions we can stick to and friends’ announcements of their word or quote for the coming year. New year, new you. Become your best… Read More A Toast to Accomplishing Basically Nothing in 2023
This week on my personal social media accounts, I published a post regarding New Year Resolutions and how I personally do not believe in them. Many people believe in them, and want this to be the time they make a change in their lives. And there are many people who succeed with them. Now that… Read More Why Every Day Could Be a Resolution
I am a runner. I’m not a marathon runner. I’m not even a 5K runner. I don’t run every day and I may go a month (or more) without heading out for a jog. However, I am a runner. Four years ago this summer, my third (and last!) baby had just turned one. I was… Read More I Am A Runner–This Is Why
Most of the New Year’s resolutions I’ve made in the past have had something to do with eating healthier and exercising more (or at all).

Try a List of Old Year’s Accomplishments Instead.
My son is a dessert before dinner kind of kid, which I am sure many of us can identify with. Outside of birthdays, we’re a protein-first kind of family. But on those savory birthdays, if they want to indulge in cookies and cake before (or in lieu of) healthy greens and chicken, enjoy. I, however,… Read More Save Your Best for Last!
2014 is only hours away! Have you made any resolutions? I stopped making those several years ago when I started having babies and now I do “goals” instead.
