February Resolution Report

*This year I decided to make 2 resolutions each month

Resolution 1

25 Push-ups or Sit-ups each night. Originally it was going to be just sit-ups, but I took Jeff Cody's advice and alternated. I have to confess that I didn't do any on the weekends (except for the 1st weekend). As for results, even though it was just a small amount of exercise, I did feel like it accomplished something (especially the sit-ups). It was a bit embarrassing that less than a minute of exercise could tire me out a bit (but maybe that was partly b/c I did them right before bed). All in all, glad I did this one.

Resolution 2
Girls in bed by 9:30 each night. We've generally had the girls on our schedule. It was very common for us all to head upstairs b/w 11 and midnight. Again, I will confess that there were some nights that I didn't make the 9:30 cutoff, but I think we did really well. Katie also had me add a "NO TV" after 9:30 for them (they have a TV in their room). This worked remarkably well. Without TV, they fell asleep WAY faster in their beds. They did complain. They kept claiming it wasn't working. But then they kept falling asleep faster and waking up happier. This resolution led to more bed-time reading as well. Definitely a keeper. In fact, if anything, I'd be open to moving the time to 8:30 or 9!
