She Has Goals

Happy New Year!

It's that time of year when everyone makes goals--some are easy but others are challenging. Some will be met, and some will be forgotten or are simply unattainable (winning the lotto anyone?).

Traditionally, I take the minimalist approach: make few goals and you have fewer chances of failure! But this year, I just feel like it's a good year to push myself. Here are some things I'd like to do in 2014, with my plan below each one:

  • Get (and stay) more organized
    • I'd like to use my planner more, and I'm also hoping this blog will help keep me accountable and on track!
  • Pump up my fitness routine (double my current 1-hour/week)
    • I currently attend a weekly Zumba class, but I'd like to add an at-home fitness routine that is small bursts of 20 min. exercises, 3 times a week
  • Eat cleaner (less processed, more whole foods)
    • Last fall I cut out caffeine & sugar, but it only lasted 6 weeks. I'd like to start again and implement more vegetables this time. No more "forgetting" to eat and then rushing through a drive through or over to the candy jar!
  • Complete my first year of classes toward my credentials (I'm half way there, but I took a year off...)
    • I'm going to look into a couple of online options, and hope my current credits transfer
  • Blog regularly
What are some of your goals? Do you have a plan to keep them? Share in the comments!


  1. Credentials for what?

    Also, I wouldn't mind joining you in working out more. I need to do that again. I want to aim for at least 3x a week in January. :D

    1. Minister Credentials :) What is your work out plan? Do you have a gym membership, videos or something else?

  2. I know what you mean about rushing through the drive thru. One of my go is to prepare breakfast and lunch 5 days a week and drink twenty_one 24.oz bottles of water each day:-) I tracking them in my planner. Love your blog and videos :-)

    1. I like the idea of tracking your water intake in your planner! I may have to try that! And yes--I have found the answer to "forgetting" to eat is simply to be prepared...but it's the time & effort needed for the preparation that eludes me. LOL But, I'm working on it!

  3. Oops I meant drink twenty_one 24.oz bottles of water each week. That's 3 bottles each day :-)
