Resolutions, Goals, Yada, Yada, Yada

Hello Friday -- TGIF!

I was going to post all about my New Year's Resolutions and Goals . . .
but it started sounding really boring and
 I hate to bore you sweet readers,
so I'll only give you the top 3!

Hello 2013!
Anywhoooo -- my number 1 goal is to exercise more.
With my foot broken, wearing a gigantic boot, having
the sniffles,
 plus the cold, snowy, icy weather [notice all my excuses],
I haven't exercised much in about 5 or 6 weeks.
 Unless you count hobbling into the kitchen to eat Hershey Kisses as exercise!! :)

However, I am going to remedy that and am doing a fabulous exercise class at the local Y.
 It's called Power Pump.
Strength training class set to music for toning and strengthening muscles.
I need that and it is  F U N!! 
But, guess what I realized -- I was the oldest one at the class!
Yikes -- at first, that made me feel even more ancient -- but then I figured --
 how awesome am I to be the oldest one in a weight-training class!?!!
I would pat myself on the back but my muscles are too sore from the weights!

My number 2 goal involves organizing and decluttering --
same old story, different year, right!
Last year, I focused on the guest room and got it cleaned out and
 looking pretty darn lovely by July.
This year -- Maddy and I are cleaning out Connor's old room.
 New paint, new carpet, new look. 
I guess it is time to get rid of his sports-themed little boy wallpaper border --
 he's only 25 now and no longer living at home! :)

And another goal -- wow -- I am on a roll now.
Wear more color!! 
Seriously, I think I wore some variation on black/khaki every day this week!
Starting now -- more color!
 
Like my new coat? It's from Lands End!
What resolutions/goals have you made?

Great resolutions! I should join you at Power Pump one of these nights!

Love, love, love your new green coat! Bring on the color this year! Unfortunately, I wear alot of black and khaki too. It's just easy!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Fabulous resolutions. Good for you on the PowerPump class. Sounds awesome. I started exercising regularly over break and want to keep it up again. It's too easy in the dark winter to just want to put on the pjs after a long day of work.

Love the coat! It's gorgeous.

Your top 3 resolutions look great to me. Great job on joining the Power Pump class! Who cares if you are the oldest one. The point is that you are exercising to improve your health.

Good for you going to Power Pump! That's awesome!!

Color! That is divine...I'm not going if I can't wear turquoise or pink! ;) Love your new coat too, beautiful green.

I think I will copy your goals! I am signing up for a yoga class (I am really old, but may look into something more fun!); I am ALWAYS in need of de-cluttering (someday soon) and last, my Hubby always says I should wear more color (my Mom works at L.L. Bean so NO to Lands End! Ha!). Wishing you much success!
