A 6 month Resolution Check Up

Resolutions. Remember when we made them...10 months ago? Resolutions, goals, whatever you want to call them. How's it going? This is about the time of year (if not before) that most resolutions have been thrown out the door or long forgotten.

But fear not, my friends. In order to keep me on the resolution's straight and narrow, I put mine on this ol blog. Therefore, I can be kept accountable. Since it's been 6 months since my last update, I figured today was as good as time as any to let you know how it's going.

Here are my 2010 Resolutions made back in January and how it's going:

1. Work out 5 days a week.
This is pretty much a done deal. I've been running quite a bit lately and have even done a few races. So this is a big, fat "CHECK!"

2. Recycle more household items.
This one has actually turned out to be fun. Our recycling gets picked up every other Monday and most "recycling days" finds our bin overflowing. The best part is the kids have really gotten on board with it, too. If I throw something away that is recyclable they will quickly call me out on it and say, "mommy! that goes in the 'cycling!" Yay!!

3. Only one Starbucks a day.
Hmmm. For the most part I'd say this has been successful with my one venti decaf mocha, BUT...since I've discover the Toffee Mocha Frappaccino things have gotten a little interesting. Normally, though I will just opt for one or the other and not both on the same day. But, some days I'm cave to the pressure of the creamy, chocolaty sweetness.

4. Do 20 or more posts a month.
Well, just look at the number over there on the right and you'll see what an epic fail this one is. But, considering that each and everyday (I'm not kidding) I tell myself that I'm going to quit blogging all together, I think it should be considered good if I have 1 post per month. But I'll work on this. Starting today.

5. Read at least one book per month.
I pretty much do this. I've read some great books lately (and some really cruddy ones over the summer). I just need to do some book reviews--I'm a little behind.

So there you have it! Not too bad. If I can maintain for 2 more months (really 3), then I would say it was a good year on the resolution-front.

Oh--and the most important thing about today...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOMMY!!!! I love her and you'll get a post about her this week. I have to convince her it's okay for me to put a pic of her on the www! She's silly that way.
