Family Resolutions for 2014

I assume all your gifts are purchased and wrapped and you are completely prepared for Wednesday. (haha. I couldn't even write that with a straight face!) So even though we may still have some Christmas things to get done, New Years is right around the corner. As with the new year (and clean slates) many of us are thinking about New Year Resolutions.

This year we are doing something a little different. Instead of each of us working on better ourselves, we are going to work together to better us as a family. We are going to make a few "Family Resolutions".  As a group, my husband, kids and I have decided to make 2 resolutions for 2014.

Our first is to eat healthier. Life gets so busy, and even with planning and grocery lists, it is easy to eat out or whip up something not very healthy. We have decided that along with eating more home-cooked meals at home we are going to add a vegetarian meal once a week. We are going to use this meal to try out new recipes and new kinds of vegetables!

Our second resolution is to get outside more. My husband and I are both not very outdoorsy. I prefer books to hikes. We all could benefit from getting outside and moving more! As a family we are going to make a plan to get off the couch, away from the electronics and get outside! We are going to explore local hiking trails and I really want to take a trip up to Joshua Tree.

Do you do New Year Resolutions?
What are you doing to do to make YOU a better YOU in 2014?
