Okay, so before I go into my resolution, I want to focus on the things I did well in 2009!
1. Organization - I maintained some very good organization as I taught, planned a wedding and completed graduate school! I also organized our apartment so well that it feels LARGE! Okay, not large, but not tiny!
2. Wedding - uh, need I say more? Our wedding was absolutely the best wedding of the decade!
3. Marriage - Unlike most celebrities (not saying I'm a celebrity!), I've been happily married for 9 months!
4. eating well - in the summer I did an excellent job of preparing more veggie meals into our diet, eliminating fast food and eating smaller portions
Okay, so here it is for the New Year's resolutions:
1. Buy a house! Mr. Soup found a house that we really want to buy. In fact, I'd call it our dream starter house. He's looking for a better job in hopes that we can before the Obama credit expires. However, if we don't, our goal is to have the money for a down payment saved so that we can officially start house-hunting in December 2010. We may not get the dream starter home before April, but I have no doubt that we can find a great home.
2. Eat Well - We will eat two exclusively Vegetarian meals per month. I would say once a week, but I know my husband. I'll start out with two vegetarian meals per month, but try to shoot for four. And when I say vegetarian, I don't mean pasta with no beef or a whole bunch of McDonald's french fries. I mean a meal full of veggies!
3. Eat Well part 2 - eat fast food only once a month
4. Get Fit - I really want to prepare my body for pregnancy. I want to work out 3 + times per week and lose five pounds by December 2010. I know this seems ridiculous, but I need to drop those last few pounds before getting pregnant.
5. Communicate - One issue Mr. Soup and I have in our marriage is communication. We need to communicate better. If we work on this issue, it will help our marriage remain solid. I'm so proud to have a loving, supportive husband who would do anything for me and makes me feel sexy. This one issue can severely hinder our marriage and I would like to nip it in the bud.


  1. Ooo we are doing the vegetarian one day a week thing as well. I think it is going to be hard- is it cheating to rely on pea soup and crusty bread heavily during these winter months?!?!

  2. My friend said her friend did lots of yoga before and during pregnancy and swears by it, it helped her pregnancy and labor go so smoothly, not to mention her recovery. I have started taking it, not for pregnancy reasons, but it really is fantastic. So I reccommend doing that once a week if you don't already :)
