welcome 2010

What a crazy, wonderful year 2009 was!  And I am always excited, if not a bit wistful, when a new one begins. Last January a few friends and I had a "Biggest Loser" competition to see who could lose the highest percentage of weight in 8 weeks. None of us were going for huge numbers, but wanted to drop some post-holiday pounds.

Here we are in January again, and here I am seven weeks postpartum. I have a beautiful baby boy (actually I have three, but he is the newest) and 15 excess pounds to prove it.  So, what better time to get some goals set for a healthy 2010?

I am nursing, so I am not going to do any crazy dieting (not that I would anyway!). And I have three boys under the age of three so my workouts and the time I schedule them in will have to be creative, but I am ready to get this show on the road.  Since it's been so long since I have been consistent with my blogging, I thought this would be a good way to kick start it and keep me accountable. Log my progress, how I stay active, what healthy (and hopefully tasty) meals I cook up.  

And I want you to share your experiences, too! It doesn't have to be with weight loss... what are your goals for this year? Eat better? Exercise more? Kick a habit that's bogging you down? Read more? Train for an event? Spend more time with your kids? Learn to garden or speak another language or...?  Fill me in!  And if you want some support, let's do this together.

To a happy and healthy new year!

Your list sounds great! Tops on mine are to lose weight, exercise more, eat more healthy and make new friendships. Happy 2010!

It's great to hear from you! I've been wondering how things have been going! Congratulations on your newest addition! 15 pounds, 7 weeks later is not so bad! Good luck with your goals in the coming year... I'll be right there with you in just a few months(losing baby weight gain), and I'll look forward to seeing what you've got cooking!
Happy New Year!! : )

Congrats on your new baby boy! I want to lose more weight this year, so I think my focus will be more exercise...I can usually keep on the healthy side of eating, it's just the lack of activity that is my downfall. Looking forward to some tasty and healthy recipes from you! Happy New Year!

Your workouts? Isn't your life, with 3 under the age of 3, just one big workout?
