Back to what I was saying

So the whole diet thing. I can't even stand what a cliche it is to make a new year's resolution to eat better. Combine that with it being a huge cliche to resolve to get your body back after a baby and, well, I double can't stand it. So I'm not resolving to do either of those things. Technically.

What I am resolving have resolved to do is to have more self discipline. Tricky, right? My goal for this year is to force myself to have more structure, so that maybe someday Marlo won't be resolving to have more self discipline. Not that I'm blaming my mother for anything. But I'm hoping that some things will come naturally if I am a little more regimented. Like if I commit to dinner prep in the afternoons, dinner will most likely contain at least one vegetable. And maybe we can eat at a decent hour, rather than the very continental-style 10pm dinners we've been "enjoying" over Christmas vacation.

Walking. I'm taking the baby out on strolls. Every time I have her in the stroller, I'm thinking to myself, "I love my babies. Why would I want to push them away from me?" Ah, Maggie Gyllenhaal. It's only funny because you are really that insufferable.

Walking is good... be sure to look for loose change while you're at it.

That same quote plays in my head every time I see a stroller. Get a wrap!!! Babywearing party!!! Want to try one of mine? Let's be hippies!!! Weeeeeeee!!!!

But seriously. I'll come over. We wrap. We walk to PCC. We stand in line and read Mothering. We order vegan pastries and soy lattes. Fun!

Or we walk to McD's for mcFlurries. Whateves.

I thought so much less of Emma Thompson when I read that she is friends with Maggie Gyllenhaal.
