Resolutions, Smezalutions and a Little Bit of Silly

We're at the end of the first month of the new year.

How are your resolutions coming along? Thrown them out the window yet?

You can read mine here.


Okay, okay, I know, you don't want to go back and read an old post and then read this one, too, so I'll briefly sum them up for you before I tell you how much I'm sucking at them how I'm doing.


The Ponytail Paradigm and Sweatpants Sublimation: if I'm not on my way to the gym, then no ponytail or sweatpants outside of the house.

Results so far: Well, my hair is now much shorter and I think that when I put it in a ponytail, it actually doesn't look messy, though I have been styling it more. As for the sweatpants...um, well, I've been doing good with that one, as long as you don't count that I have fallen in love with Old Navy's yoga pants and would live in those if I could. But, again, they somehow seem more put together. I'm probably totally kidding myself here, but I'm going with the thought that I look casual, but NOT like a slob.

Jammies Juxtaposition: all of us out of jammies by 9am.

Results so far: Bwwwaaaahahahahaha! Why not be lazy and stay in our jammies if we aren't going somewhere? Though, I've been changing into my yoga gear pretty early. Because it's a million degrees in my bedroom and I only sleep in a tank and underwear so I have to put something on. Because I want to seem like I'm ready for the day.



Bookworm Effect: To read 52 books this year, 1 per week. Last year, I read 99, but with all the blog reading I do now, I thought I'd cut down on my expectations.





Results so far: I'm currently on book #6 and will probably finish it today. Woohoo! I'm actually doing good with this one. If you are on Goodreads, please click over on my Goodreads widget and add me as a friend! I love seeing what other people are reading.



The Butter Postulate: Despite my love of butter, to use less of it. No recipes with one or two sticks of butter allowed.

Results so far: Well, I haven't made my sweet potato casserole since Christmas, at least. And I have actually been making healthier meals. I miss butter so much.

Ass Conjecture: After gaining 10 pounds in two months, I said I was going to lose that weight by July and then reassess.

Results so far: I haven't stepped on a scale this month. But, I can tell you that an upside of gaining weight is that my boobs are coming back. I actually had cleavage the other day, without the help of a padded push-up bra. But, we're joining a gym in February. It's going to be hard for me to actually work-out, though. You can drop off your kids in their childcare for FOUR HOURS at a time and they do not require you to stay in the gym during this time. It's going to be hard not to drop off my boys and then go home(less than 10 minutes away) and nap shower without interruption blog read clean up the house. But, I figure, I'm making progress even if I just work out for 30 minutes, go home for a little while, and then go pick up my kids. They have a preschool program during that time for the kids, so hey, they're learning.

How are yours going so far? Come on, make me feel better.



Here's my little bit of silly for the week, linking up with Stephanie from The Blue Zoo for Silly Sundays.

This video is Monkey(who dressed himself), Bear(shockingly in just underwear, right?), and Cub. They were running around and around forever(I edited that part out- I figure 1 minute or less is good for a video on here) and then Monkey decided to beat up Bear(this isn't the silly part...)




After watching it, Hubs: Monkey, did you hurt your brother?

Monkey: No.

Hubs: I have it right here on tape.

Monkey: You have the wrong tape.

Don't feel bad, I am totally sucking at my resolutions too! I still haven't lost the holiday weight, and I'm still complaining about it even though I said I wouldn't. Let's not kid ourselves. I'm not happy with my lovehandles and can't justify them in any way, shape, or form.

Loved the video!!

I guess it is good to have "mommy brain" sometimes because I totally forgot about mine until this moment and now I am feeling ummm...guilty. Well tomorrow is Monday that is always a good day to start a diet again. Feeling less guilty now.

Bwahahahaha at Monkey's comment to your hubs. That is priceless.

Our house is a big circle, so the kids constantly run around it and chase each other. It's never ending.

Cute video.

Um, Old Navy Yoga pants do not count as sweatpants. I justify the fact that I wear them more days than not because they are BOOTCUT, like jeans! Completely acceptable attire!!

I *THINK* I'm doing OK. My only resolution was to be more patient. It seems like I am.........but who knows. Laughing.

I never made any resolutions at all. Cause I knew life would interrupt my ability to complete them. Too cute what Monkey said.

Okay, so I posted about this too--but I don't make resolutions b/c I can't keep them. I rather unofficially decided to try and lose a few pounds (I've managed to keep things down 4 lbs since New Year mostly, would like to do more soon). I want to try and get dressed more often as well (not happening today!). And I dropped out of NaNaWriMo (no surprise, but I'm very sad about it)....

I resolved to drink no more than 2 sodas per day, and, well, I'm on #2 at 11am so I think that's probably not going so well...But they're diet sodas!

I'm not doing very well with my resolution either.

That video is cute! I love Monkey's comment about it!

Haha. You have the wrong tape. That's hilarious.

I think I'm doing fairly well on my resolutions but i am definitely struggling with the gym/weight loss related resolution :/

Blogger The girl with the flour in her hair said...

I didn't make resolutions because I'm so, so terrible at sticking with anything. I have the attention span of a fruit fly.

But I'm going to add you on Goodreads. I'm known as puddlescript over there. My reading has dropped significantly lately, but I hope to pick up again soon.

I'm a shocked that the gym does not require you stay while your kids are there. That is crazy.

Umm. Resolutions......

its too cold in NY to do anything but curl up in a ball of blankets and fury in front of my iMac.

You're doing better than I am! I would love to get out of the habit of wearing my hair in a ponytail everyday, but it's just so darned EASY!

Resolutions...what are those bahaha.

I'm not doing so good with mine, I broke most of them on Jan 1st..eeh I suck lmao.

But I am so tracking you down on GoodReads...I'm obsessed. I did actually win a book giveaway though and am so excited!

I found you on SITS...I'm not a complete stalker :)

"You have the wrong tape"??? LMAO.

I can't believe you're already on book #6-- I think I'm on book #3, but with blogs to read, I'm definitely going slooooooowly!

I like your ponytail/sweatpants rule. When I was in college, my sorority had a short-lived rule that you couldn't wear jeans or ponytails except on the weekends. Yeah... it didn't work out so well.

You are reading lots of books! Look at you go :)

Ok, seriously? You can drop your kids at the gym and you DON'T have to stay there? Wow! A *little* jealous! Haha

And I am with you on the ponytail thing. It is such a bad habit of mine. 90% of the time there is a ponytail on my head and the breakage shows when I leave it down. Ugh.

I think you are doing well with your plans. 4 hours of childcare at the gym is awesome. I'm so jealous.

those are some serious resolutions! Keep it up with the butter. Try Smart Balance. It's saved me.

I love Old Navy's yoga pants too. I was going to order some more tonight.

Blogger Babe_chilla said...

I'm doing pretty good at mine. That SAID, it was to learn to say no, stop filling ever waking moment with a plan, do less and relax more. And I am 7.5 months pregnant, so being lazy hasn't been to hard :D

But saying no is difficult, and get's me in trouble with people. It's hard to learn to deal with that.

4 hours and they let you leave the gym? Score!!

January 31, 2010 at 8:59 PM  
Blogger Babe_chilla said...

Blargh, I HATE typos, that was supposed to say "every waking moment".

PS - I am part of that 99%! Made up or not ;)

God. I didn't even make resolutions. If I had, I'm sure I would have already broken all of them. In my opinion, yoga pants are very trendy and put together, BTW. And gym babysitters are the best invention EVER!

January 31, 2010 at 9:15 PM

I specifically did not make resolutions this year because I suck so hard at keeping them.

However, I definitely feel you on the pony tail and yoga pants thing.

Oh, and your boys are freaking adorable.

No resolutions for this chica. But...I am trying to lose weight. These last 10 pounds are stuck on me, and I HATE it. It doesn't add cleavage either, so there is no love here.

What gym is this and do they have one near me?

I want to know how you read and blog read with 3 little boys? Where and how do you find time? I am working on my losing weight resolution and so far so good...4-1/2 pounds lost this month!

Gonna have to take a look at those yoga pants...sound comfortable.

"You have the wrong tape." HAHAHAHA.

Boy (I didn't mean that as a pun, but now it's there)! You have your hands full with three young ones. I didn't realize how young until I saw the video

I've been to the gym once. And I managed to make it through one day without cheating on my diet. Are you happy now?

Blogger Chelle said...

That video was hilarious! I need to show it to Isabella tomorrow. She'll love it.

You are a book reading fool. How do you do it, raise your boys, blog and comment on blogs?? Will you share your secrets with me?

I love yoga pants and Gap sweats. I wear mine religiously and have no shame.

I do, however, fix my hair. But only bc some of my layers fall out of a ponytail.

I'm doing horrible in the weight loss. I consumed so many brownies today I feel sick. I'm doing a redo next week.
