1. We started our Christmas break here at our house, as the calm before the storm. We spent a few days out and about at times, but mostly finishing last-minute gifts and just enjoying each other. We attempted to eat healthy, but it's hard when you know you're going away for a week. But we stuck with fixing things we could take with us. On Christmas, the kids went nutty getting all of their awesome new stuff! Then on the 26th we set out with a car full of clothes, presents, and leftover homemade pizza (our Christmas Eve tradition--made with homemade honey wheat crust and super good homemade sauce!) and headed to my mother's house. After a few awesome days with my family, we went to my husband's family (1.5 hours south of there) and spent the last few days. Then we ended the chaos on the 1st and headed back to our comfy condo. Now we're just trying to readjust to the kids not being spoiled and the adults not being able to sleep in! Oh, and there's another major (super adorable) adjustment we've had to make too.....

3. On a completely different note (this is where I'd get docked points on my English essay for lack of flow), I'd like to mention my resolutions for the year. Last year, I didn't set many specific goals and I didn't pressure myself too much on any of them. I think I'll stick with the same this year, as it kept me from feeling disappointed at year's end. Here's what I plan on doing in 2013:
Drink less of everything except water
Spend more time teaching the boy preschool stuff
Run 100 miles/month (Yes, this is specific. But I won't beat myself up if life happens)
Finish my Spartan Trifecta
Get my personal training certification
Have more sex
Make more friends
Get the entire family exercising together more
If I can accomplish half of those, I'll feel pretty dang good! Some will be easy, some will be fun, and some will be very difficult. But they're all going to be totally worth it!
So, tell me what you've had going on in life! Any awesome holiday happenings? Great gifts you got? Resolutions you're looking forward to (or dreading)? I wanna know!
