New Year, New Resolutions

Happy New Year 2014

Wishing you a Happy New Year!

For the past few days I’ve been reflecting about all of the different things that happened this past year, and things I hope to do throughout the new year. There are many things I want to work on, change, and improve, below are a few of my resolutions for 2014.

I can’t wait to hear yours!

Run a Half Marathon: This time last year, I made a resolution to run a Marathon. When I made that goal, I did not relize how big of a task this would be. I’m happy to say that I did run more throughout the past year, and I have finally built up enough endurance to run 13.5 miles without stopping. This year, I’d love to participate in a half marathon. They look like a lot of fun!

Turn our house into a home: For the past five years, we’ve moved five times. I think we’re finally ready to call our current residence our home, at least for a few more years until we save enough money for a house. This year, I want to focus my attention on decorating the place, give it a personality of sorts. I’m tired of seeing bare walls! haha.

Work on my relationship with food: Right now, my relationship with food isn’t the healthiest. Don’t get me wrong, I love food. I love cooking, going to new restaurants and trying out new cuisine, but I can’t help but count calories every time I look at a piece of food. I often have an internal debate of whether or not I can eat, and when I do decide to eat, I often become mad at myself and head straight to the treadmill to compensate for whatever it was I consumed that day. I hate that I do this! It’s definitely aggravating, not only for myself but for those closest to me as well.

Write, Write, Write!: Dedicating more time to writing was one of my resolutions last year as well. I did write more last year; blogging certainly motivated me to continue writing on a daily basis. This year, I have a project that I really want to complete soon. In addition to blogging, I’m currently working on a book. I hope to have the first draft finalized this year! Fingers crossed. Haha.

Let’s Hear From You:
Did you accomplish everything you wanted to in 2013? What are your goals and plans for 2014?

    Well my resolutions for 2014 are to continue one I made last year…… spread smiles wherever I go and to hopefully brighten someones day:). Also to continue on my weight loss journey and about ten pounds to go to my goal of 105 pounds. Not bad for a woman of a certain age. To craft more and im very excited about the long distance craft with my sweet daughter who writes this great blog:). And lastly to enjoy every moment of life no matter how small it…… is everywhere:).

    Thanks for sharing your resolutions. Have fun turning your house into your home! As a traveler currently living out of a suitcase, I’m excited to do this some day soon too…

    Also, thanks for sharing the personal note about your relationship with food. As someone who’s had an eating disorder, I understand that having a relationship with food can be really tough. Keeping it healthy and maintaining your sanity is totally key! For me, it was a control issue (feeling out of control elsewhere in my life). Once I was able to confront this, it helped it ALL other aspects of my life. I hope you find a similar light with your situation :]

    Looking forward to checking back to your blog throughout 2014!
