When the New Year starts do you make resolutions for the new year? Honestly, I don’t usually make resolutions, however this year we decided to do it and we did it as a family. We sat together on New Year’s Day and discussed if we would make resolutions this year. Gabrielle had a great idea about each of us saying a word that we would like to live by for 2015. We each said different words; Sébastien said FIT, I said HEALTHY, Emanuelle said FUNNY (hehe), and Gabrielle said HAPPY. Gabrielle’s word ”HAPPY” is the one we all agreed was the best word. Isn’t it a great word?! Who wouldn’t want to be HAPPY for an entire year?! It literally sums up all the words we had said. Being fit and healthy makes you and your body HAPPY. And being funny makes your soul HAPPY! :)
Sébastien has been exercising every day! Very proud of him. He loves to jog, but it’s too cold out to do that, so he’s been using the elliptical, doing exercises, and yoga in the basement. Gabrielle has been working on being happy, which I couldn’t be happier about (haha). Am I the only one who has a 9 year old with mood swings? And little Miss Emanuelle is just naturally funny… so as long as she can joke around, she’s happy. :)
As for me, I’m working on being healthy. As many of you know I’ve been trying to make healthier choices for my family since August. Having a healthy family is very important to me. One healthy aspect that I’m really working hard on achieving is drinking more water. I wish I could say that I drink a lot of water, but I don’t. I usually drink 3 glasses a day, HOWEVER that’s going to change! I’m determined to drink 8 glasses of water a day and encouraging my family to join along with me. I read this article on staying hydrated and it really inspired me to make a huge effort to drink more water. It inspired me so much that I even made printables!

The printable is available in color or black and white. Make sure to set your printer settings to landscape when printing. You could also place the printable in a frame and use a dry erase marker to circle or X out the water you drank on the glass of the frame. :)

I’d also LOVE to know if you are a water drinker or are you like me and you need to work on it?
