The time has come, the walrus said...


It's the new year. Which means I feel obligated to make goals I've no intention of keeping. But I've found if I make a list of goals, I do keep a few, and therefore accomplish more than if I had made no list at all. I like to call this the "glass half full" mentality.

Because I am slightly self-centered, my most important goals revolve around my appearance.
1) Maintain healthy eating habits.
 My problem isn't not wanting healthy food. It's being too lazy to make sure I always have a healthy alternative, especially on busy days.
My motivation for changing my eating habits? A longer life? More energy? Less risk of developing Diabetes?


 My main motivation is to be able to put on my jeans, and have my hips not look so muffin-toppy.
I don't know if you're aware, but it's really hard to suck in your stomach, and stand up really straight all day long.

2) Grow hair as long as possible.
Now, I now this may not seem goal worthy to some, but I can't focus... I'm liable to walk through Target, see a girl with a really snazzy short cut, and make an appointment to cut mine off. You think I'm joking? I'm totally serious.

This is about as far as I've got into making my goal list... other than saving money. But I need a job with steady hours first.

Oh! I got distracted and almost forgot my main reason for blogging tonight. I've decided to try the "Daniel Diet". Ten days of nothing but vegetables, and water. Water as in no Coke.


I'm probably gonna be a little on edge the first... ten days. It's mainly to give my poor body a break from all the carbs, sugar and salt consumed throughout the holidays.

I'll keep you updated.


  1. Well, thanks. I now have that song stuck i nmy head and as soon as I start singing it out loud, Schyler will too, which means we're going to be a little more on the crazy side than usual.
    I think your hair looks cute short, too. We'll still love you if you cut it off (even if your mom doesn't).

  2. I totally get you on the short haircut thing! Last time I cut my hair was because of a picture on a blog!!! Good luck!

  3. Could I do the "Daniel Diet" with water *and* Diet Mountain Dew? I mean. It's diet...

  4. Jennifer: don't deprive your child of the craziness!!! Let it flow freely. It's a perk of homeschooling.

    Jill: I know right? Thank you!!

    Annnd Kristin: Negative. Iwai. Water only... or straight veggie juice, which really isn't that bad. You may add lemon to your water also.
