My kids are all tucked into bed and as I sit here in the quiet, I am tempted/taunted by the siren call of the leftover Christmas chocolate in the kitchen. (Raise your hand if you know what I am talking about!)
I admit it.
Whenever my wits are at their end, my marbles are rolling all over the floor or I am calling the Zoo to see if they will PLEASE take my kids…I want chocolate. Or coffee. Or a drink. And these things are especially easy to get right now because of my favorite time of year. I know I can’t blame Christmas, or New Years or all the lovely people who brought and left said chocolate, or coffee, or alcohol…it’s all me. And so that is where I am. Sitting here, in the quiet, trying to NOT get up and go to the kitchen.
I am going to win this will power battle.
I KNOW I am.
Why am I so positive?!
Because I have decided that… (pardon the language)
Having spent the last 5 years being pregnant or having a newborn around, my poor ol’ body has been through the wringer. So, being that baby Frances is our last (planned!) baby…I am so excited to finally have my body back to myself. No more losing the baby weight to gain it all back again. My pre-pregnancy weight will be back and last more than two months this time!! (between baby #1 and #2!). I am going to make my outside match how I feel inside…pretty damn fabulous!
This is my New Year’s Resolution…but it’s more than that, this body managed to create, grow and nourish 3 beautiful kids, and it deserves to be treated like the goddess it is…so 2012…here I come!!!
