I love the perspective a new year brings. It’s like all of a sudden you’re given a fresh start and you get to do whatever you want with that. Some people decide to do nothing and some (like me) kick it into high gear.
I have huge goals for myself in all areas of my life and a new year is a great excuse to reflect on what I’ve accomplished over the last year and what I need to work on. It’s not easy to admit you need to make changes but that self realization is so important for growth.
So far this year I have been crushing my exercise and eating goals. I try to reach 10,000 steps a day plus 3-4 HITT style workouts a week. I know January is when everyone goes hard and then you don’t hear from them again but I’m here to say it’s February and I’m still doing it!
I’ve also been eating super healthy trying to eat Whole30 style for the most part. I’m done eating crap like donuts and calling it balance. Treats like that make me feel like shit so there is no balance there for me. Nowadays, a treat for me is a matcha latte or a smoothie. And I have those treats all the time cuz they’re not unhealthy!
Another goal that I’m still working on is self care. I always do so much in a day that I rarely leave time to take care of myself. I’ve been trying to meditate a few times a week and also have “me” nights like taking a bubble bath or doing a face mask. This goal is harder for me and I’m not crushing it as much as my others but I am improving, little by little!
Tell me about your goals for 2018 and how they’re going!
