I have never been one to set resolutions for myself. There was one year that I vowed to exercise every day, but that didn’t work the first day of the new year so I quickly scrapped that. I am more of the kind of person to make monthly goals and try to do it each month rather than a whole year.
But I am willing to try the whole resolution thing out this year, in addition to doing my own monthly goals.
The rules are to post one personal and one bloggy resolution. So here they are:
I will start with my personal goal. I resolve to start spending less on groceries and actually stick to my meal plan for the entire month. Each month I sit down and plan out a month’s worth of meals and then each week I get the groceries for the meals for that week. The problem lies in the fact that the grocery bill is always so high and that then I never end up cooking according to my plan. I have all of these cravings for the different foods at the beginning of the month, but when the day comes to actually cook it I don’t feel like it or I am too tired to stand in the kitchen for that long preparing it so we end up having something really quick (which in turn adds up on the grocery bill because those quickie meals are not cheap). It is just the hubs and I and we spend, what I think, is a crazy amount on groceries each month. I would hate to see our bill when the kidlets arrive. I am always within budget for groceries…I just hope to get that budget lower this year.

And now onto my blogging resolution. I love blogging and the friendships I have formed. I love reading blogs and LOVE to comment on them. The problem: I haven’t seriously sat down and read…and I mean full out read through my google reader…in over 3 months. I have thousands of blog posts to read through and it pains me each day that I haven’t sat down to read them. There are some that I will randomly sit down and read some days, but never like I want to because it just seems to be no time to do it. I vow to do better and actually read and comment on blogs this year…like I did just a couple months ago. I know how awesome it makes me feel when someone comments on my blog. I want them to feel that same love from me that I feel from them when they comment
So there you have it. My personal and bloggy resolution for the year. Do you have resolutions you would like to throw out there for all of us to help you keep accountable for. Run over and link up with Jen and join on the resolution fun!!!
