Now that we're a week or so into 2015, here's a question for you: How are those New Year's Resolutions working out? What's that? You gave up already?! Or maybe you still haven't worked up the sufficient willpower to get started. Either way, don't despair. Everybody knows that grand, sweeping gestures of self-improvement are a one-way ticket to Failure City. In fact, most New Year's Resolutions are nothing more than lies we tell ourselves to feel better about subsisting on a steady diet of gingerbread lattes, red wine, and sugar cookies during the holidays -- so why bother wasting any time trying to live up to some completely unrealistic self-imposed goal?


Instead, give yourself a break this year and set the bar a little lower ... with our list of Realistic New Year's Resolutions for Moms. We promise these "rules" will be way more fun than giving up refined sugar or going for daily runs, even if none of them make your butt look better in yoga pants (sorry, can't have it all).
