I thought I would stop by and chat for a bit since I won't be posting tomorrow. I can not believe 2012 has come and gone. 2012 has been pretty good to me so I'm actually very excited about 2013. I normally don't make resolutions, but I do try to achieve certain things during the year. Which I guess one could argue that that's the same thing. Resolutions and goals.
In 2013 I want to continue to have a healthy pregnancy accompanied by a safe and smooth delivery. I want to eventually start doing my pregnancy workouts. With Savannah I did water aerobics when I could and I went for walks on my lunch break with my co-workers. This time around I think I'll do walking and pre-natal yoga. I haven't really gained any weight yet so I need to start exercising before I start packing on the baby pounds.
Of course, one of my goals for 2013 will be to get back in shape after I have the baby. With Savannah all I did was breastfeed and monitor what I was eating and I lost all my baby weight plus an additional fifteen pounds. Don't hate me. I gained all fifteen of those pounds back once I stopped breastfeeding which put me right back at my pre-pregnancy weight. I am happy at that weight and I hope I can get back there after baby number two. I am not about that diet and exercise life so I'll need to stay in shape while pregnant.
In 2013 I am going to submit my children's book story ideas to publishers and literary agents. I spent too much time in 2012 trying to work on illustrations and self publishing. After doing some research I have decided to try another route to becoming an author. Self publishing is a great option if you can do it, but I am going to try something else in the new year. Wish me luck!
That's pretty much it. Eating right, being positive and becoming a better person don't really need to be on my list because I am always trying to improve upon those things. What are your goals (or resolutions) for 2013? Happy New Year and I'll see you in January!!!
