I usually try to do resolutions but I think this year I am going to opt out and do 2 other things instead.

Number 1: I want to follow the advice of this sign. I am really hard on myself and expect myself to do more than is really possible. With a little one on the way, a move to a new home and our already hectic life I need to let go a bit.

Number 2: I am taking part in a 52 Week Green Up. It is a set of weekly challenges that bring some more green into day to day life. I already try to be green but there is so much more I could be doing and I don't want to take all the steps at once. So, every week I will try the next challenge, and i'll keep what works for us and ignore what doesn't right now. The first week's challenge is all about material possessions and choosing what to do with your time.

21 Weeks

How Far Along? 21 Weeks (when did that happen?!?!?!)
Total weight gain/loss? 12 lbs gained
Maternity clothes? Lots of leggings and maternity pants. Most of my tops still fit.
Stretch marks? None yet, still moisturizing like crazy!
Sleep? I would sleep 24 hours a day if I could. 
Best moment this week? I am going to pretend that says month since it's been so long. We had a fun filled December with visits from my parents, Jon's parents and Shannon. The holidays flew by and we had a blast through Christmas and New Years.
Miss Anything? I miss my energy and going for walks. 
Movement? Lots of kicking and moving. Jon has felt a few from the outside too!
Food Cravings? Anything sour
Anything making you queasy or sick? Coffee and chicken are still not my friends.
Have you started to show yet? There is a big bump now. Strangers are commenting on it.
Gender? My ultrasound is January 18th so as long as baby cooperates we will know then!
Labor signs? None yet.
Belly Button in or out? Still in but holding on for dear life. 
Wedding rings on or off? Still on, starting to feel a big tight by the end of the day. 
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy still.
Looking forward to? Finding out the sex and a bit of a slower pace at work.
