My poor abandoned blog hasn't seen an update in so long! I guess in not good at keeping up with a blog, specially if life gets a little crazy.

Let's see... It's already September! Oh my! Since my last post about new years resolutions here's what's happened:

- Weight: already lost 3 or 4 kg, still a couple more to go before I feel comfortable again.
- Health: better. We started to go to a nutritionist so we are eating a lot better, with the occasional slips of yummy things. We can't help it, we love eating!
In this subject, I have tried to work out on and off. Mostly I can say I don't do any exercise, until this week that I started using the treadmill daily. I hope I can keep it up.

- I'm not keeping up with house work at all but I always try.

- This year I also got a job! My very first one and then quit after 4 months because it wasn't what I expected to be. I was blessed to be able to return to institutional pharmacy with a part time job that I love.

Maybe I'll blog a little more frequently but the truth is that I'm not fond of/good at writing. Let's see how it goes, so far I just love the blogger dashboard where I can see all new posts in my favorite blogs :-)

2012 resolutions

Well, it's here, 2012!
2011 had good things: I finally graduated from college, we got a puppy and shared good times with people I love, but overall it wasn't the best year... So, I'm REALLY looking forward for what 2012 brings.

Every New Year, I think of things I could change about myself to be better, but I never write them down, so they are forgotten just a few days later.

This year, I'm writing them so I can come back and remember them, let's see how many get done!

1. Loose at least 5 kg: in 2011 I gained this weight, all I want is go back to that and have all my clothes fitting me right again.
2. Related to the one above, eat healthier: make smarter decisions when it comes to food.
3. Do more exercise.
4. Save a determined amount of money every month.
5. Besides this savings, save extra money so my husband and I can make a trip together. (it's easier to cut expenses when you have a good motivation).
6. Study. I graduated this last August, but I haven't found a job yet :( so, my knowledge is, let's say, "sleeping". I would like to dedicate an hour every day to study, read articles or something pharmaceutical/medical.
7. Arrange two rooms that are a total mess since we moved in.
8. Keep up with the housework, specially with laundry and ironing (I hate to iron!)
9. Read at least 5 books just for fun, not work related.
10. Get a job. Well, I'm doing my part sending resumes, taking temporary jobs, but I would like a permanent one, near my home and with normal hours. Is that too much to ask?

Good luck with your New Year's resolutions!
