New Year 2010

I don't really do New Year's Resolutions, but I have a few personal goals this year. I have to stop procrastinating and take better care of my health. I have an appointment for my annual already, and plan to get my first mammogram. I need to make a dentist appointment and a few others as well.
I'm always running the kids to their appointments, but this year I'm going to stop neglecting my own!
I've eaten all kinds of naughty, sinful foods over the holidays. I haven't gained any weight, but I am ready to go back to eating healthy and making sure I'm getting my protein in.

And another goal is, I'm going to refresh my blog reader. I'm cleaning out the blogs that nobody updates any more, and I want to find some fresh ones to read! So I'm asking you for a favor. Please recommend to me at least two of your FAVORITE blogs! If you want to suggest more, that's even better. Whether it's a hugely popular blog that you just love, or a blog that's underrated and doesn't get enough recognition, point me that way and I'll check it out, and also compile a list that I'll post later. I really appreciate your help!

ETA: I went a little crazy tonight and started a new blog. It's a food blog, and I'll post recipes, post about teaching my kids to cook, post my Meatless Monday stuff there...plus whatever else I think of! Please check it out and follow me over there, I'm lonely! Southern Loving

Happy New Year, and to ALL of my readers - my buddies, the lurkers, and even those "uninvited readers" - I hope 2010 brings you exactly what you deserve!!! =D
Much Love and thanks for all of your support in 2009. I hope 2010 is the best year ever!

Happy New Year! I'm all about food blogs (my biggest weakness). I'll be sure to check it out. AS for other blogs, its hard to recommend because everyone's taste is differnt in what they are looking for. I usually pick one from someone else's list and go visit. Think of it like a rabbit trail, some where there is a prize of a blog. But what out for the holes.

Thank you! And Happy New Year to you and your family!
It's so hard to choose "favorite" blogs. I have a whole list on my sidebar that I "must" see each new post. INCLUDING YOURS!
Good luck with the new food blog!!

It's like you are saying my resolutions. I too have to stop procrastinating and hand over the queen of procrastination title to someone else. I also have to get my mammogram done. Like I said, I procrastinate. Happy New Year!

BTW...Almost every blog on my blog roll is worth reading except Philly Food Feed. He's my friend and he never updates despite my yelling at him :) Momsjournal and 33 for a moment are both great for different reasons. Check them out and let me know.

I went through my reader recently too and cleaned it all out and found a few new ones! My favorite way to find new blogs, is pick a few great blogs I already read and see who is on their blog roll. If there most recent post grabs my attention I hop over and read a few of their posts to see if its something I want to follow!

I have a food blog too! But I have been awful at keeping it regularly updated, my goal for this year is definitely to post recipes regularly on their!
