New Year Resolutions. I have to admit that I am normally not a fan. I think the past couple of years I didn’t even make any or if I did I called them goals and not resolutions. HA. Try as I might I can’t avoid them this year. I have some things I want to accomplish and I might as well put them out there so I can be held accountable and if I’m doing it right I might as well call them what they are, resolutions. So here we go…
ONE. Whole 30. I have been needing to do this for a while now but am just now taking the plunge. I have seen several friends have amazing results on it and have always raved about how good they felt after it was over and so I finally think I am ready. I am ready for a good detox, my body needs it so so so bad! I have a couple friends who are doing it with me so I won’t be alone!! However I’m not starting until next week so until then I am eating all the sugar, grains, and dairy I can! HA!
TWO. Work out. I joined a gym last week and I can’t wait to get off my butt and go workout! HA! I joined one with a month to month contract so I can quit at any time, I hate being locked into a contract especially when I quit going. I always have these big plans of going to the gym every single day and putting in these huge workouts but realistically I just want to go two or three times a week and move my body.
THREE. Be more decisive. I wish I was one of those people who could make a decision and then act on it. I am so wishy washy about things and it takes me forever to make a true decision on something and then even longer to actually make it happen. I have been saying I was going to sell my house for about a year and a half now. Have I even done anything about it? Nope! Big decisions like that make me nervous so I have been putting it off. Well no more! This is year I am going to make things happen.
FOUR. Self care. This sort of goes along with Whole 30 and workout but this year I really want to take care of my body. I need to have my other varicose vein surgery and I really just want to do a better job of taking care of myself. I want to be more diligent about my nightly skin care routine and I want to me more mindful of wearing sunscreen everyday.
FIVE. Save Money. My Mom always said you go through seasons of spending and then seasons of saving and I think that’s true. However I feel like I have been in a season of spending for way too long and definitely need to cut back! I can’t say that I will have “no spend” months but I definitely want to be more conscientious of how I spend my dollars and save more.
SIX. Travel to one new place. I would really love this to say “travel to six new places” but realistically if I can get to one new place this year I will be a happy girl. I love to travel and I hope this year provides me with many travel opportunities! I already have three trips planned but they are all to places I have been before (Memphis, North Carolina and Fayetteville) and that’s ok! One new place is all I need…maybe New Orleans? Chicago? Los Angeles? Hmmmmm…
SEVEN. Take life one day at a time. I don’t know about you but I am always planning. Planning my next trip, planning what to do on my next day off work, planning when I’m going to see my friends again…etc. I feel like I am living in the future and not in the day that I am in. This year I want to wake up each day and live it to its fullest. I also want to remember that each day is a fresh start.
EIGHT. Read 50 books. I love to read! I actually already read a lot but I’ve never counted how many books before. This year I want to track it and see how many I can do!! I listen to audiobooks in the morning when I get ready and on my commute to and from work and I read on my Kindle during my downtime at work and before bed each night. I am already about finished with one book this year so this should my easiest resolution to keep this year!
NINE. Have fun. I don’t know about you but some days I get so bogged down with life (work, pay bills, bathe the dog, clean the house…) that I forget to just have fun. Whether it’s a dance party in the kitchen or just singing at the top of my lungs in the car I just want to have fun this year.
TEN. Double my blog page views and blog related income. Surely you didn’t think I would leave out any blog related resolutions on my blog did you? I have a lot of fun opportunities coming this year for my blog and I can’t wait to see where they take me!
Did you make resolutions??
What is one thing you want to accomplish this year??
