Mamavation Monday – New Year, New You?

For most of us, this week marks a transition back to the regular routine.   The holiday season has come to a crashing halt like a three year old after a sugar crash.

Did you make any resolutions?  How are they working out for you? Need a kick in the pants yet?  (hehehehe)

In honor of the first Monday of 2013, we are kicking the year off with a SLUMBER PARTY!

These are always our favorite and most *ehem* entertaining shows of the year where anything… well ALMOST anything goes and we enjoy an hour or so of girl talk.  The crux of the conversation will be around our goals and/or resolutions because there’s something almost magical about saying them out loud…

Do your goals focus around physical achievements?  Are you focused on your health this year?  Making yourself a priority?  What about mental health and stress?  Are those on your list?

The top resolutions made in January shouldn’t be a surprise – (in no particular order)

  1. Eat less
  2. Exercise more
  3. Spend less/Save more
  4. Drink less
  5. Stop smoking
  6. Find a better work/life balance
  7. Volunteer in the community
  8. Get Organized
  9. Learn something new
  10. Finish a project that you’ve been meaning to get to

Any of those are YOUR list? Most importantly, have you decided what your reward will be when you do reach your goals? Because after all, rewarding yourself is perhaps the funnest part 🙂

Speaking of taking care of ourselves (we were talking about that, right?) This week’s Mamavation Blogging Carnival is sponsored by Schick Intuition Razors. If you haven’t tried them yet, you TOTALLY should. I swear these are the only razors that can get me to shave in the winter even if I don’t have a hot date lined up. Come on… I KNOW I’m not alone in this… right?!?!
