So, how is your first week of New Year's resolutions going? I'd say I'm doing okay but could use improvement.

I've been to the gym. I've been wearing makeup everyday, thanks to some great lipstick tips from Cafe MicheleZ last week. (Lipstick is the most intimidating product for me.) But I haven't been eating my five fruits and veggies every day. Yesterday, I only had three. I gotta step up.

I'm trying to stay inspired, so here are the most popular New Year's resolutions according to the U.S. government website. Are some of your picks on here?

  • Lose weight
  • Get out of debt
  • Save money
  • Get a better job
  • Get fit
  • Eat right
  • Get a better education
  • Drink less alcohol
  • Quit smoking
  • Reduce stress overall
  • Reduce stress at work
  • Take a trip
  • Volunteer

When I asked what you were resolving to do last week, here are a few of your answers:

"I'm going to lose 20 pounds by my 21st birthday." --lovemylittle1

"Keep going to the gym. Let my children and my husband know that I love them no matter what crazy stuff they end up doing. See my parents more and my sisters. And just enjoy life to the fullest." --ladybug01188

"Mine is to put on my make-up more often, and brush my hair more! I have to say that I've let myself go after having kids." --GinaPQueen

So here's my question on this Wednesday, hump day? How are you doing with your New Year's resolutions so far?
