Top 2 Tuesday: New Years Resolutions

Welcome back to this week's edition of Top 2 Tuesday! I have so much fun playing & I hope you'll hop over to Taylor's blog (The Undomestic Momma) and join in with us. This week's topic is:

Top 2 New Years Resolutions
{1} Tune into my creative side - I have enjoyed making bows for Kinsley Anne & I hope to continue to do that & maybe even pick up a few other new skills. I also want to use my brand new camera to capture the events of my life. I love photography, took several classes in high school, knew how to manually use a camera & develop my own film, etc. I don't care about the developing part, but I am going to find a couple of hours to re-learn the techniques that I once knew & put them to good use. Sorry Kinsley Anne, you'll be my subject for a long time to come..just get used to it!

{2} Gain more self confidence. I am really hard on myself since I am still hovering ever so slightly above my pre-pregnancy weight. The first chunk of weight came off super easily & the last 5 or so pounds are proving incredibly difficult. I know that I am breastfeeding & that my chest is a little heavier than normal, for obvious reasons, but I don't think I give myself enough credit. I am a busy, tired, working new mom that barely has enough time to breathe, let alone be good about an exercise routine. However, I will to find something fun at home that I can do to work out. I don't care if it's dance to a wii game, walk, some p90x activity, or what, but I have to do it for my own morale. I don't have to have the same body that I once had, but I am going to get this one fit & feel good about it.. And by summer, I will be wearing bikinis again. I am bound & determined.
If anyone has ideas on fun & effective things to do to tone back up as a new mom, PLEASE leave me a comment!!! I value your thoughts/helpful hints!

{runner up} stop cursing altogether again. I used to be realllly good about holding them in. somehow they have started slipping again & with Kinsley Anne now here, it's time to put a stop to them. once and for all!

Until Next Time..
Love, Jen

ugh those post pregnancy pounds are so annoying! I bought two Jillian Michael's tapes that I ADORE and they really really work!

Great resolutions! I love making bows and just started selling mine. it's a great way to earn a little extra cash. I just got a new camera & can't wait to figure out how to use it. Also, P90X does wonders for the body!
