Check-in on New Years Goals

With the half way point of the year upon us, I wanted to revisit the goals I set for myself. I have really tried to hold myself accountable to these.  Smalls steps to big goals is what I have in the back of my mind!


So where do a stand?

1. Don’t sweat the small stuff. This is a constant reminder.  I still am very hot headed and get worked up easily but I am working on giving myself a few seconds to breath before reacting so brashly.

2. Be a better listener. Another thing I CONSTANTLY have to remind myself.  But I am proud to say I have really noticed it becoming more of a habit.

3. Blog once a week. I am so proud to say I have kept up with this so far! I am really working hard on outlining my blog/social media calendar so I am more organized!

4. Practice yoga once a week. I have really struggled with this one.  I am working out more consistently but yoga has only been happening every other week.  I definitely am going to start doing it more.  I found some really great Tone it up online yoga videos the other day actually!

5. Travel to a new place. I am headed to Nashville, TN for a bachelorette party in July! Any recommendations of what we should see/do?!

6. Learn a new skill. I don’t know if it is a *new* skill but for the first time I am actually actively running and cutting my pace.  I can run on the treadmill at a 7 which I have NEVER been able to do before!

7. Volunteer more. I have stepped up to be event chair for the Jingle Bell Run 2017! Contact me if you want to make your own team, or join mine here! Even if you can’t be there in person you can “Jingle in your Jammies” from home AND you get the awesome event t-shirt or make a donation!

Overall, I am proud of myself for working to reach my goals! Just have a few areas to work on but like the quote above sometimes it isn’t about the final goal it is about the journey to get there!

What are were your 2017 Resolutions/Goals? How are you accomplishing them?

  1. So glad you are blogging once a week, because I enjoy reading! Maybe I should do the Jingle Bell Run…or maybe i’ll walk 🙂

  2. That is awesome that you can run at a 7! My sister and I have been running lately and we are in awe of the people that come in and start at a 7! We are working on our pace, but have a ways to go to catch up to that! I have also been trying to do yoga more! Great job on your goals! Keep it up! I don’t even remember what mine were anymore! :/

    1. Way to go on starting to run! And having a buddy is SO helpful! Small goals really do make a difference too! I only remember mine because I wrote them down and come back to them frequently. This one of the first years I can remember feeling like I have worked on them!! XOXO

  3. A 7 is impressive! I miss my treadmill for that visual pace because it’s easy to show down when running outside.

    I set monthly goals right now but I’ve thought about picking specific larger goals for next year and doing monthly check in posts. I need the accountability no matter what!

  4. I’m inspired by you blogging once a week! I’ve been staying more consistent with mine but definitely have room to grow. Nice to meet you through the link-up party!

    1. I love seeing what inspires other bloggers and I REALLY needed some consistency this year…. who knows maybe next year I will be REALLY crazy and blog twice a week! It is so hard to keep up with all of the different types of social media linked to blogging though!
