For the New Year, I decided to set a few goals. Not necessarily resolutions, but goals. In 2013, I want to strive to be the best person I can be, in all areas of my life. Who doesn’t?! I don’t want the added stress of “New Year Resolutions” because most the time, they don’t last. I just want to try to make healthy choices and be a better person. Sound so hard? We shall see! Let’s get started.I’ll admit it, I have been MAJORLY slacking in this department. And to be honest, I am not quite sure why. All I know is that I love to exercise, and I need to get back into the swing of things. I am human, it happens. Please tell me I am not alone! So this year is all about fitting FITNESS into my life. 1. Get back into running. Remember those AWESOME running shoes I bought, yea I need to dust those off. I loved how I felt when I was running. I felt strong. 2. Sign up for more 5k’s. I loved running for an important cause. 3. Incorporate Yoga into my life. The benefits of Yoga are endless, and let’s be honest… I need more serenity in my life. 4. Stretch everyday! As for my overall health, I just want to make choices everyday that my future self with thank me for. Ya know?! We have so much control over what we do, eat, say, and feel. I am ready to take over. 🙂 1. Pack my lunch everyday! Not only will I save money, but I will for sure feel better and have control over what I eat. 2. Meditate. If not everyday, every other. 3. I am learning to BE in the moment. I REALLY struggle with this, it’s a challenge. Just enjoying the present moment, and letting it alllllll be! 4. Cooking more. Experimenting and getting creative in the kitchen with healthy recipes. I love to cook! I need to take advantage of my cooking light subscription! 5. I want to do more and more research on where my food is coming from. I would like to try my best in eliminating processed foods from my diet. I do not eat much, but I would just like to be more aware! 6. I want to keep learning about how to be healthy and spread the knowledge! I have a lot of things I want to carry out this year. 1. I want to increase my readers for my blog. I REALLY enjoy sharing my life and blogging. It’s fun! 2. I want to keep researching on how to better my blog. Stay tuned! 🙂 3. Attend a blogging conference! It would be so fun to meeting so many of other bloggers and sharing stories. I feel I would learn SO MUCH! 4. As I have mentioned before, I am a HUGE reader. I want to read AT LEAST 1 book a month or more. This totally doable for me if I manage my time properly (also a goal!) 5. I got a sewing machine for Christmas! I want to learn how to sew this year! I am starting a 7 week program through this awesome blog I found… Crazy Little Projects! I am SO excited!!! 6. TRAVEL! Anywhere…and I’ll be happy! 7. Become a morning person. I want to enjoy my mornings! Its a work in progress…just ask Nick!! 😉 8. I could go on and on…these are my top goals!!! So there you have it folks…those are my 2013 goals!!! Whoa! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I LOVE the feeling of the fresh new start that January 1st gives you. We have a brand spanking new slate to work with. The whole year to create the life we want to live, and how we want to live it! I have so many things I want to work on and accomplish. I am SO thankful for this past year. I have learned so much about myself, others, and loved ones. There were many highs and lows; new & exciting endeavors. I can’t wait to see what 2013 holds. I have a feeling it will be a pretty fabulous year. What are your goals for 2013?
