how are my resolutions going, you ask?
Let me just start off by saying I cannot believe it's in the middle of June. I can't believe it's June, period. So this is the post where I give you an update on my New Year's Resolutions. Ha. Hahaha.
I'm not eating as well as I could. I gave up refined sugar and dairy for two weeks at the beginning of the year, and then I was all, "Oh hooray, it's my birthday! I can eat whatever I want!" And then my brother and sisters bought me a pack of Oreos, a 6-pack of Dr. Pepper, and a couple boxes of Jr. Mints (only my 3 favorite things in the world.) After that, it was all downhill. I continued to drink Dr. Pepper until February, when I gave it up completely again, and lasted until May, when I caved. Again. But only a few times. I don't plan on drinking another until Thanksgiving. (But you know, things don't always go as planned.) I haven't stayed away from dairy and sugar at all. I'll just come out and say it. I had a doughnut with a tall glass of ice cold milk for breakfast. Suck it, New Year's Resolutions!
I can't believe I've actually done this one! I had my first run in January, and then due to being sick on and off for two months, and then due to laziness, I didn't run again until March. I've been running at least once or twice (or more) a week and I love it. I've been planning on writing a post about running and all that stuff about how if I can run, then anyone can run, and all that. It'll happen.
take a picture every day
Unfortunately, this was out of my control. Our camera is officially out of working order, as of shortly after Easter. I am brokenhearted. I've been taking pictures with my phone, but it's just not the same. I am especially sad because I have been unable to capture Austen's babyhood with a real camera. We have so many beautiful pictures of River as a baby, but hardly any of Austen. I try not to think about it. I may cry.
I've been reading more this year than last year, so that counts, in a way. Right now I am reading the Time Traveler's Wife, but I'm stuck in the middle. Flew through those first 150 pages, and then just got stuck. This always happens.
I could be nicer.
