Oh how I’ve missed all of you and of course participating in Marvelous in My Monday! Thanks for hosting, Katie!
I couldn’t think of a better way to bounce back from my couple month blogging hiatus than on New Year’s Eve with MIMM and a list of New Year resolutions for 2014. I think my blogging hiatus made me realize how much I missed it and in this New Year, I want to really try to stay on top of it no matter how busy my work and school schedule become. So, I thought actually writing this resolution out, along with some others would help me start out 2014 on the right track.
Is it weird that I’ve never really had New Year resolutions before, let alone write them down? Oh well, I’m freakin’ excited about these so let’s get crack-a-lackin’.
1. Become Closer To God
It’s interesting, as I began to think about all of my resolutions listed below, this one was the around 5th or 6th, which is not okay. I grew up knowing and loving God, but with my busy schedule have let that relationship slip, again not okay. And the mere fact that I didn’t think of God until later on down the list is reason this is my number one, and should be my number one always. Without Him, the rest of these resolutions mean nothing and they won’t get done without Him being first and foremost in my life. I am looking to find a really good prayer-book or a participative bible, any recommendations out there?
2. More Self-Love
I used to be really confident, and always prided myself on that. However, over the past several years my confidence and love and appreciation for myself and what I can do has lacked. I’m not sure what to attribute that to, but I have learned this year, that it is unfair to compare myself to others’ looks and successes and I plan to really focus on more self-love. ❤
3. Continue My Healthy Living Journey
I plan on continuing my healthy living journey through healthy foods and exercise. Understanding that there is no end point here…it really is a journey. I also plan to continue my exercise regimen and increase from 3-4 days a week to 5-6. Along with my circuit training and boxing, I would love to do the following:
- Get back to strength training
- Try a yoga class
- Try a CrossFit workout
- Try an Aerial Silks class
- Try a spinning class
- Get back into dancing with classes or become a coach/instructor
4. Re-Evaluate My Finances
I am really excited for this one because I am already one chapter into Smart Couples Finish Rich by David Bach. Tim and I are working together on improving ourselves and how we look at and manage money. Money isn’t everything and I don’t have to be a millionaire, however I do want to learn more regarding finances and what I can do to improve what I already do!
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I really want to keep up with blogging more often throughout the year and finish the year without any hiatuses. Here’s to hoping!
6. Continue Master’s Classes
Pretty self-explanatory. I earned a 4.0 in both of my classes for my first semester, I’m going to keep plugging away for the next year and a half to get this completed. 🙂
7. Focus on AdvoCare
I truly love what this has done for me during my plateau and afterwards. I hope to find more contacts here in my area to become more involved with the company and move up in the company and what it has to offer.
Happy New Year, Loves!! Wishing you and your loved ones a safe, happy, healthy, and successful 2014!
