So, there are my reasons for not blogging. Now, I proclaim them to be malarkey. I'm the mother of a 3.5 year old daughter, N, and it is a really tough age. I want to write about it. I need to write. I think it will be therapeutic to put my thoughts out there. If anyone reads or responds to those thoughts, it will be icing on the cake.
For my first post, I'm sharing my working mom resolutions so that I can link up with Liberating Working Moms. Here they are:
- Write regularly. Write in my own blog, leave comments on others, and write about N's childhood so she has a record of it.
- Constantly rremind myself that N is not trying to drive me crazy...she's just 3. Give myself time outs when her behavior starts to upset me.
- Focus on wellness, not just fitness. Change my workout routine to include more yoga and strength training to help me feel calm and centered. The goal here is to help #2 above.
- Take care of my skin. I'm 32 years old and all of the sudden, my face is showing it. This year, I will invest in, and regularly use, skincare products.
