No food Fridays - New Years Resolution

It is the time of year where you swear to yourself you will complete a task for the following year. Normally it is the same thing each year. My favorite one I say each year is to lose weight or get healthy. This year I have a few. I don’t really expect to complete all of them but at least I plan to try.

1. Try to hold my temper and be more patient with my kids, especially with a certain 3 year old that loves to say...Mommy, I WANT IT NOW! I will try to speak calmly instead of stomping and itching when I would get frustrated
2. I will try not to get irritated when The Husband criticizes me on how I made something. Of course Honey, you are right. I’m sure I’m doing it wrong even through you have no idea what is puff pastry or a macaron is. (He actually knows these since I have made them enough times. A marcaron is a little hamburger)
3. Of course, to lose weight and eat healthier (sucks when all I want to cook involves frying or sugar).
4. I will make time for myself somehow: like reading, cooking, exercising, and attempting to relax
5. My main one is to be organized. I have a feeling that if I was more organized, I wouldn’t be scrambling in the last minute and I wouldn’t get irritated when someone would criticize me or bug me for my attention. I might even get a chance to plan stuff where I could eat healthier and exercise.

I know this may be a lot of stuff but one could hope and there is always next year.

I do hope that I will be able to do more recipe development and blog more often. I just need an extra 4 hours of my day. If anybody have some extra time handy, please pass it my way. Thanks!

I hope you have a wonderful and safe New years. Please eat for me since I “should” eat healthier starting now.


  1. Good Luck! I haven't listed any resolutions for this year, yet

    I have to work on my temper too ...

    Happy New Year Joy!

  3. Great goals! Hope you've already found time for yourself this year! :)

  4. Great resolutions, Joys! If you achieve a little of each, count it all joy and celebrate at each step :D I am amused at your No.5 cos I am top in that. I have been looking at the mess I have created lately. Promised myself to tidy them up and get very organised TODAY...keeping my fingers crossed. Have been saying that almost everyday....haha. Hope you have great day and Happy New Year to you and your family!
