January Joy

I was having a look at Glasgow Mummy's blog this morning and noticed that she was participating in something called January Joy which I thought looked like fun. I was diverted over to Florence Finds for the deets and decided that I would definitely take part! I'm going to try really hard to post every day (but I think we all know that won't happen). Maybe I should make it a resolution......but then it most DEFINITELY won't  happen.....

I'll do my best.


Today's post is about resolutions. Because I often find hearing about other people's resolutions a bit boring (but not as boring as being told about other people's dreams), I've kept em short and to the point.
There's only 3 so I won't keep you guys too long....

  1. To drink less wine. I love wine. LOVE the stuff and drink a glass every night. However since Ava started sleeping through the night a few weeks ago (about time) my nightly glass has sort of crept up to nearer two. And there's probably one night a week (usually a weekend night) where I have been known to drink a wee bit more than that. Don't get me wrong, I don't really get drunk in the house. Not since Penguin has come along but I do want to cut down on the old grapes. So I am going to try and have two alcohol free nights per week. And failing that just a small glass of red a night. We'll see how that goes....
  2. To get back to 8,7lbs. This was my goal weight last year (when I was losing the baby weight) and I eventually reached it around the summer time. This isn't a big resolution as I only have a few pounds to lose. And to be  honest I am pretty happy with my body and not that hung up on weight anymore. But I wanna get back to my fighting weight. Which means I need to drink less wine (see above)
  3. To get Jennifer Aniston's upper arms. Obviously I don't actually want her upper arms. That would be sick. And I'd probably go to jail. But I have noticed in photos these past few months that while I have been chuffed with my waist and legs (bye bye baby weight), I have been neglecting to admit to myself how rubbish and flabby the tops of my arms look. So you know what that means don't you? No, I'm not joining a gym. I'm just gonna have to start doing some arm exercises in front of Corrie in the evening. Remind me, won't you?
This January Joy stuff looks like fun - if I manage to keep it up. Check out Florence's blog if you fancy doing it yourself and you can also follow the hashtag #januaryjoy on Twitter.

On a separate note, my blogger seems to be trippin'. Although to be honest it could be me. It's ridiculous how rubbish I am at this technical stuff given my complete addiction to the internet. I have basically had to remove all my gadgets like the follower button, blog post archive, etc as they keep appearing at the bottom of the page (even though on the layout I have made sure the gadgets are placed on the right hand sidebar). If ANYONE might have a clue how to help me I would really appreciate it. You can tweet me (@Dawniepopsies) or send me an email (dawnelizabethyoung@gmail.com) and I will love you forever. Honest.

That's so odd that you mentioned about removing the gadgets, I was reading this the other day & kept saying, where's the follow button? Unfortunately I don't know how to fix it. Have you tried to re-install them?

It's so annoying! I think I might have fixed it and the follower gadget should appear at the top right hand side bar. Could you tweet me and let me know how you get on? Would really appreciate it. Thank you xx

There's a lot to be said for some dumbbells (or bottle of waters or tins) and a couple of free youtube videos. If you want, I can send any links I find your way, as I'm aiming for the J-An arms too...
