My resolution is to make healthier meals for my family.

My resolution is to be more organized. I am doing great so far. I am keeping a journal and preparing for school the night before.

I wanted to lose some weight. No luck so far.

my resolution or goal was to “do school” two times a week with my preschooler at home for an hour or so each time… so far we have stuck to it but am definately feeling our excitement and interest beginning to wane.
