I personally have several resolutions this year, more so than usual. Usually I have one resolution, and usually it has to do with weight.
This year I have several resolutions. I decided I'm turning over a new leaf, and I'm going all out! The sky's the limit.
My first resolution is to work smarter, not harder on this blog. I want it to be amazing. I really want it to reflect me. I want to make it look amazing and to be the blog everyone wants to visit.
Of course I want to lose weight, but that's not what I'm going to focus on. I want to show my family that eating healthy all the time can be delicious. A lot less carbs, a lot more vegetables.
I'm hoping to start training for a half marathon. I know I can run a 5K and 10K, I'm just hoping and praying that I can do 13.1 miles. Physically I don't think I'll have a problem, mentally, I hope I can get past the block. If anyone has any advice on that I'm all ears.
I want to focus more on spending quality time with my kids. Yes I'm a stay-at-home mom and see them 24-7, but between cooking, cleaning and running errands, I feel like I don't sit down and enjoy them like I should so I'm going to try harder. They are only little once, and that time is short.
I want to be more organized this year. I'm probably going to make some more lists to do so, as if I don't have enough. I'm going to attempt to get rid of things I haven't used in years. I've read that if you haven't used something in 12 months, get rid of it, you're not going to. I find this hard to do. I like to hold on to things because they mean something to me. But when I think about it, if it means something, it would be out and used, not put away in the basement.
My final resolution is to stay calm and happy. I don't want to yell or raise my voice. I want peace in my house. I also know that I create my own happiness. Once I'm happy with myself, it will shine upon the rest of my family.
This all sounds like a lot now that I have it written out, but I know with the support of my family and all of my friends, new and old, I can do this. I am here for you too, if you need me.
Dream big and have a great day! Tomorrow is Thirsty Thursday!
