New Years Linky Party Girl

Well, maybe a day late and a dollar short, but never too late to join a party, I'm linking up with Diane from Fifth in the Middle and Bloghoppin to share some resolutions with you.

So, I started on Day 3, but I'll update on days 1 & 2, as well.
Fun & Family: Spend less time at school (or on school stuff at home) and spend WAY more time doing fun things with my family. We have weekly family meetings, which are kind of fun in and of themselves, but we plan fun things to do together during these meetings, and I love that time together! This is one new tradition I'm hanging on to!
Baking together!
Crafting & Creating: I finally joined the Silhouette bandwagon and bought myself a cameo for Christmas. I'm TO-TAL-LY in the learning stage, but I've made a pretty decal for my computer, and two phone case inserts per daughter so far. My goal is to learn how to use that thing better, and monogram everything that will stand still long enough! I'd also really, really, really like to catch up on the 5 years of scrapbooking that I'm behind on! Yikes! As for creating, I'm always trying to think of new things that will help my students, and I create as many as I can. I've enlisted the help of my ultra-creative 11 year old daughter on ideas, but she hasn't given me an answer yet...

Finally, Fitness: My goal this year is to lose an additional 60 pounds. I've already lost 90, but with 60 more I would be ROCKIN'! I've broken down and begun to exercise (blech!) with a kettleball (LOVE) and the treadmill (enh? it's not so bad). I'll keep up with my weight watchers group and quit eating after 8 p.m. Wish me luck!

  2. Congrats on your loss so far! I'm looking to lose 90 lbs starting NOW! I love hearing and seeing success stories. My mantra is "I wanna be a success story"!

  3. Congrats on your weight loss so far. That is really great.
    I have trouble closing the kitchen at 8, as well. I have two friends that have asked me to text them every night at 8 so they won't eat anymore, and it helps me remember, too.

  4. 90 pounds? WOW! That's amazing! You already look ROCKIN'!

  5. I've been in Weight Watchers several times and can never stick to it! I am so inspired by your progress! I just wish I had to the motivation like you do! Congratulations on your success!
