Happy New Year!
Sorry for the radio silence around here lately. December was far busier than I anticipated with work and this little blog definitely took a back seat.
2017 wasn’t my favorite year and I was more than happy to see it go. I have high hopes for 2018 and am looking forward to the clean slate that the new year brings.
One of my favorite things to do come the beginning of January is to write out my goals for the upcoming 365 days. Some of them I meet, some of them I don’t — but I love the exercise of contemplating ways to better myself as a person. Here’s my plan for 2018.
Health & Wellness
Drink more water — I am terrible at drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water per day. I ordered myself a new water bottle hoping that might help.
Go to yoga once a week — I always feel so good after going to a yoga class, I really want to make it part of my weekly workout schedule.
Run a 1/2 marathon — I’ve completed three half marathons and I always feel like I am in the best shape of my life after months of hard training. I can’t wait to run another one in 2018!
Recycle — I just finished the book “Zero Waste Home” and I am inspired to recycle more and use less disposable products. We recycle large items (like cardboard boxes), but I want to be better about maximizing our recycling power.
Journal Everyday — I feel like this is on my list every year, but I do want to jot down memories so I can look back on them in years to come.
Read the Bible Everyday — I downloaded a Bible on my iPad that breaks down the Bible into a few chapters per day. It is really manageable and I am currently making my way through Genesis.
Encourage Other Women — I want to figure out a way to encourage the women in my life. I haven’t figured out what I am going to do yet, but I am looking forward to doing something!
Blog Three Times Per Week — I really want to turn my little corner of the web into something special, so I am going to put more emphasis into posting more quality content.
