Word of the Year

I read on Alison's blog that an alternative to resolutions is to pick a defining word.  My past history with following through with resolutions is not so great (see: lose weight as the number 1 resolution for the past 20 years).  So, I'm going with the defining word method and we'll see where that takes me.

My word for 2010 is:


I'm going to try and keep this motto in my heart and mind, trying to make decisions in line with what I think would be nourishing.  I'll be attempting to nourish my body, spirit, mind and hopefully, a healthy pregnancy this year.

In keeping with my nourishing decisions and inspired by Mel's Shrinking Ass, I'll be tracking my exercise progress at The New Plan.  I'll be taking it one day at a time, hoping to make good decisions, like trying to fit in exercise each and every day of 2010.

I really like that idea and I think you've chosen a great word.

That is such a nice idea and I love your word. I think we could all benefit from some nourishing in so many ways.

That is a beautiful word. I can't think of a better one. In nourishing yourself, you will be nourishing your brain and body to get them ready for a little one. Maybe you could paint that word somewhere, like on a rock or something. You could put it on your nightstand and look at it every night.

Resolutions suck! Good for you setting a goal: Nourishing, I think that's wonderful! There are so many ways in which we need to nourish ourselves.
