Christmas has been and gone, and there is one more event for 2011 and that is New Year’s Eve. For some this is the biggest night of the year and people around the world celebrate with a big bang – or fireworks at least.
This week’s discussion is about New Year’s Eve and the resolutions that follow. With two young children it’s not something I will be making a big fuss over this year, a baby doesn’t understand the concept of sleep-ins so staying up until midnight is a bit of a struggle.
Which brings me to New Year’s resolutions, do you make them or break them? I like starting the year fresh, having a big clean out and reducing the clutter. It’s understandable that gyms love January, every year people start with good intentions and sign up to a contract – only to never show up and feel guilty about it for the coming months.
In 2012 I won’t be pregnant or breastfeeding so I am determined to get fit and run regularly (feel free to remind me of that at any time during the year). We rarely eat junk food and I am pretty happy with our diet so it’s definitely exercise which is at the top of my list. Oh, and drinking more water.
So tell me, what are your New Year’s resolutions? Or do you prefer not to make them? Do you have a history of keeping them or forgetting them on January 2nd? What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?
