The whole “new year new me” thing is such a cliché, but I think it’s a good idea to start the new year with the goals you want to accomplish this year. While it is true that you can set goals anytime during the year, the beginning of the year is a time when most of us seem to have more motivation. Many of my resolutions are probably ones that everyone talks about, but I have specific plans of how I will tackle them. I look forward to seeing how many of my goals I can accomplish this year!
Exercise more. Everyone wants to get fit, especially after our holiday weight gain. I want to start with some zumba classes (because I miss going to them and I’m weak now), and then work my way to doing PIIT28 again. It’s important to ease my way to working out multiple times a week.
Eat healthier. Cook at home more and try new recipes. I’m not one to count calories, but I do know that eating home-cooked meals is less calories than eating out.
Blogging goals. A blog post schedule of at least two posts every week and daily Instagram posts. Better content, better photos, better blog : )
Learn more skills. Photoshop, Lightroom, and CSS for blogging; Hadoop and Python for work. Gotta keep learning even after I’m done with school!
Finance better. I am going to do this by first cleaning out my marketing emails and abiding by my own shopping rules. I have been pretty good at keeping track of my spending on an Excel spreadsheet, but I need to check my spending weekly and monthly. The goal is to save money for the future (and to buy the things I really want to buy).
Implement new habits. I’ve been reading a book about habits and the two I want to implement are reading more and doing a five-minute stretch every morning.
Travel more. Travel somewhere, whether old or new, at least once every two months! Travel wishlist coming up soon 🙂
Think less. This is going along with one of the things I learned in 2016. I don’t have to plan everything and have to be more flexible sometimes.
We will accomplish our goals together this year! Thanks for stopping by : )
