A new leaf

What better time to start blogging again then on the first day of the New Year. I'm sure the bloggesphere is inundated with posts about resolutions, hopes and fears for the upcoming year. I've read a few here and there, and if anything they have prompted my own introspection as to what I hope to accomplish this year.
I am pleased with my continuing focus on my health. While I am not a dedicated exerciser- I try to keep my end of the bargain with the dog and get a minimum 45 min walk in daily. I hope to increase my daily exercise when my copy of your fitness evolved for the xbox 360 & Kinect arrives sometime this week.
I am contemplating the thought of running again and have pulled out a training schedule for a learn to run 10K. I enjoyed learning to run a 5K and continued to run into the fall. Once the weather turned cold & my schedule got less flexible, my running dropped off.
So here it is January, not exactly the warmest month in Calgary, but this is when started couch to 5k 2 years ago, so why not now? I'll let you know how it goes.
I will attempt to be a 'better' housekeeper this year. I do a darn good job keeping up on the mountains of laundry & dishes- but this allows me to be a total slacker on vacuuming and other assorted chores (such as bathrooms & mopping). I've tried to follow fly lady before and fall apart at about the second week. We'll see how I do as I attempt a regular cleaning schedule.
so other than the regular run of the mill resolutions, nothing too out of the ordinary here. I'll strive to be a better mom to my kids through bettering myself. All the best in 2011!
