Resolutions, June Update

Wow, this past month was so busy! Holidays and engagement (!), and vacations. I hardly had any time to pay any attention whatsoever to my resolutions. Darn shame....not that I was really doing anything with them to begin with! Ok, so enough of the year has passed that you may have ditched some resolutions (ahem, cooking and journaling) or have started new ones.

So here we go with my progress thus far:

1. Write in my journal- From last month, my journal is still sitting in my desk unopened and the pages are beginning to yellow. Maybe I should just take it home. I did come across a handy little journal called One Line A Day: A Five-Year Memory Book, where you write one line a day. It seems pretty nifty. Maybe I'll give it a whirl? Or do you think it will just be like my Keel's Simple Diary experience? Which to refresh your memory, has been written in maybe 10 times.

2. This is my year of savings- So, this year of savings will quickly be blown on a 5 hour event called a wedding. I've nearly emptied, not completely emptied, just took a large chunk, of  my savings account so far with starting a savings account for the wedding. The Fiance and I are paying for it ourselves, so every cent we earn counts. Yay for overtime and bonuses!

3. Lose 15lbs by May 1st- This past month changed A LOT! Yay me! Even before the proposal, I was starting to eat healthier and started going back to the gym. Now that I have a pretty little gem on my hand, I'm going on the regular. I've even subscribed to Self Magazine for some pointers and motivation. Have you ever read that magazine? I never gave it a look since I wasn't a gym rat, but after looking around on their website for the past month and borrowing copies from my future Sister-in-Laws I'm hooked! I'll be sure to share any knowledge I gain with you ladies! 
Do you have any tips for motivating yourself to go to the gym? Any pointers for eating less but not being hungry or tired?? Please dish!!

4. Learn to cook- Ya I ditched this one a few months back, but  have made a few summer recipes that I found last month. I'll be posting about them soon!  Also, my husband to be has begun to drop hints, not really even hints but flat out statements, about his fear of starving to death once we're married. I'll definitely have to register for some beginners cook books. Does it matter that I CAN cook, I just don't enjoy it?

5. To be more personal on this blog- I love so much sharing personal stuff with you guys! It's been so much fun for me. Thank you everyone who reads/comments/emails me! I appreciate each and every one of you, your messages really make my day and I've enjoyed getting to know you guys better and finding new blogs to follow. For any future posts, is there anything you'd like to see more of? Less of? Anything you'd like to know about me?

So, I'm not doing too too hot with my Resolutions, but I do feel refreshed and motivated with an upcoming wedding and the summer season. I'm hoping to make some progress on all of my resolutions, even the ones that have gone astray. Sorry for all of the wedding references above with the resolutions, I promise I won't become ALL wedding stuff All the time. Maybe just a few posts if you guys are interested... are you? are you? huh? Let me know!

So, how have you ladies been doing with your resolutions? Have you changed or modified any of them? Have you said sayonara to any? I hope each one of you are enjoying the summer and any changes that have come your way.
