I've been teetering back and forth about making New Year's Resolutions this year. Generally I like the idea of setting new goals for the new year. But it feels a little different this time since so much is going to change with the arrival of baby.
I could certainly try to set some of the classic exercise/diet-related ones - but again, it's too hard to guess what things will be like after baby. I could say I want to lose all my pregnancy weight in a reasonable amount of time, but sine I've never had a baby before, I have no idea what my body will do after the birth. I could make a general exercise goal like, "I will work out at least 3 times a week every week of the year," but that doesn't seem reasonable given all the unknowns.
Last year my resolution was to be nicer. And I think to an extent, it worked well for me. I think I'll keep that on the list.
So here we go - "the list."
1) Be nicer - especially to certain people at work.
2) Keep our marriage a priority. I don't want us to become parents who forget they are (and were first) a married couple.
3) Make some professional growth and changes.
4) Survive and thrive. I joke a little - but I know there will be a lot of sleepless nights and fears and worries and moments when I feel overwhelmed and unhappy. But I know we can (and will) survive and even thrive.
I hope to remember all these in a few months (when the New Year is pushed far from the front of my mind).
What about you guys? Did you set a new goal with the new year?
