It's time for a resolution!

Every year I always come up with some new resolution to lose weight and get in shape, but this year I am serious! I have put on a little extra weight since having my two precious boys and I am ready to get back in shape and lose those pounds!
But I don't have goals just for myself, I also have goals for my family!

Here are the goals for 2011!
  • Lose 10 lbs... I am starting today (one day early) and I hope to lose the weight by mid-March. I will keep up a weekly post about that goal and where I am at with it!. We'll call it Weight-Loss Wednesday!
  • Start a Gluten Free AND Casein Free Diet. We have heard that Gluten Free and Casein Free diets CAN help children with Autism, and although it MAY not work we are willing to give it a try. This is going to be very trying and difficult at times because Gluten and Casein are in LOTS of products but it will force me to cook at home a lot more and will make me more aware of what I am putting not only in my body but our children's bodies.
  • Keep my house CLEANer than I usually do
  • Get organized and try my very best to STAY organized!
  • Make a budget for the family and stick to it.... we WILL save money in 2011.
I think that about covers my goals for both myself and the rest of my family. Hoping that 2011 will be an even better year than 2010, even though 2010 was pretty great.

My most memorable things about 2010?
  • Celebrating my 5 year anniversary with my amazing hubby!
  • Celebrating Chad's first birthday and Gibson's 3rd birthday.
  • Learning that Gibson is one of many in the world of Autism.
  • Hearing Gibson say "I Love You Mommy"
  • Participating in the 2010 Autism Speaks Walk in downtown OKC.
  • 7-Day Eastern Caribbean Cruise with my husband and parents.
  • Finding a passion for photography and creating a business out of it.
  • And last... just being able to have the opportunity to stay home with my two wonderful boys... it is VERY crazy at times but I love it and love them so much!
Tomorrow will signify the start to a brand new year as well as the 6th year of marriage for Gerod and I. We actually get to go on a date!! Hopefully I can get some pictures of us while we are out without kids!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!!
