So far... So okay

We're almost two weeks into the new year and I'm doing OK on my resolutions. I have not had a single soda since New Years Eve. The first three days were extremely difficult. I was exhausted, had a major head ache and struggled not to give in. The temptation is still there of course, but I find it much easier to gulp a glass of water and be satisfied. I have had  a few cups of juice which I think helped with the sugar cravings a bit.

I haven't been to the gym yet, I feel like I'm in repair mode from the holidays and I haven't figured out how to snap out of it quite yet. My major goal this week is to hit the gym at least twice and to get back in contact with my trainer.

We are starting a 100-day challenge for your family. For 100 days we are not going to eat out. At all. I saw this video and thought, we could do something for 100 days. So no eating out for us. As relatively frequent visitors of McDonalds and Dominos it is going to be difficult. Our oldest (Emmy, 7) is totally on board. Our youngest (Liz, 5) is not so much. She got this terribly sad look on her face, which upset me until I realized it was my fault, so then I got mad at myself. She shouldn't be upset because we shouldn't have been eating out that often. The frown lifted a little when I told her we were trying to save for a Disneyland trip. Not only will we cut calories, we'll save quite a bit of money in the meantime.

I'm still awaiting my new hair style, but I'll get it done- (hopefully this week, and I'll add a photo of the new look). I've been trying to read more nonfiction books and spend time with my kids. The year has gotten off to a slow start but I'm more determined than ever to get us to Disneyland, happier, skinnier and with more life experience under my belt.

How are your New Year's resolutions going?
