Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve. However you celebrated (or didn't) I hope you're ready to enjoy this fresh start that a new year brings. I have several plans for making the most of 2014. Not so much resolutions, as we all know how quickly those pitter out, but goals I want to work towards this year:

  • Run more 5k's and work up to a 10k race
I love the feeling of finishing a race (though at the beginning of it I'm usually wondering what the heck I was thinking). I want to run at least 4 this year, and at least one 10k... which means I need to step up my running routine to make that possible. 
  • Lose 10 pounds
While I've lost all the baby weight, I'm still not feeling great in my body. I want to get in better shape. To do that I know I need a specific goal, so 10 pounds it is.
  • Keep my 4.0 GPA in grad school
I worked hard my first semester in grad school, and I want to keep that up.
  • Be the mom Fynn deserves
I don't mean be perfect, I know I'm far from perfection, but I want to be a more patient mom who is in the moment more. I want to focus on her, what we're doing together, and not worry so much about doing things "right".
  • Take the time to appreciate all the good
It's so easy to get bogged down in all the negative, all the things that don't go the way I want them to. While I know I can't completely erase all of that just by saying so, I want to make an active effort to notice and appreciate all the good things; big and small. 

What are your goals for 2014? I'd love to hear what others are focusing on at the start of this new year. 


  1. I really don't have a whole lot of goals this year. My main focus is to be true to myself. I really want to increase my confidence as a mom, teacher, and wife by truly being me.

  2. These are great resolutions! I love that you want to be the best mom for your daughter but acknowledge that doesn't mean perfection. I totally agree with that!
