- Cook at least one meal from scratch a week.
We go out to eat or have food from our parents (yes, we're lucky) A LOT. Or, we'll just cook frozen dumplings or a frozen pizza and call it a meal. We've already started cooking healthy meals more, I just want to keep it up.
- Work out at least three times a month.
Yes, I said MONTH. Also, learn how to use the home CrossFit-type gym that my husband set up.
- Compliment at least one person a day.
This one I stole from Kileen's resolutions. I'm always scared of approaching strangers and telling them how much I like their shoes/purse/coat/hair/makeup.. but I need to get over my fears. I mean, everyone likes compliments, right?
- Take at least one photo of my son a day.
He grows way too fast, and I really want to remember every moment! I started a flickr account for his daily pictures, and since mid-November, I've only missed one day. I want to keep it up!
- Learn how to use the manual settings on my camera.
I complain about my camera, but that's because I use the automatic settings. I know my camera can take good pictures, I just need to learn how to use it properly.
- Be more bold in my clothing and accessory choices.
This is already a work in progress, but I'm still scared of going outside of my comfort zone. In 2011, I want to wear heels to work. I want to wear more color. I want to be a better accessorizer. I want to wear my leather skirt that I LOVE but am too scared to wear. (WHY? I don't know. I'm a wuss.)
- Take better care of my body.
This means, sleeping earlier, drinking more water, eating healthier, taking my vitamins, getting all my check-ups, etc. Basically, what my mom has been telling me for the past 25+ years.
- Document my life better.
I was putting together my 2010 Retrospective yesterday and realized that I don't have very many photos of myself. I'm usually the one behind the camera, and the pictures are usually of my son. I can't even remember what I was doing for half the year, so hopefully this little blog will help with recording my personal achievements and non-baby related stuff.

I don't think I've ever made New Years Resolutions before. I think I just assumed I wouldn't be able to keep them up or I'd just forget completely. Now that I have a blog, it'll be easier to keep myself accountable... I hope. So here we are, my very first New Years Resolutions for 2011!
