Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…  Nah, not quite. I’m more of a dog person. 😉 It’s snowing right now here in New York. Not just a dusting, but a blizzard type snow. News reports are calling it a “bomb cyclone”. Crazy, right? I’m […]

Happy New Year! 

Happy New Year! 

Happy New Year!! 2018!!!! Even though January can at times feel a little bleak and boring, I do love the newness and expectation of whats to come. It’s a new year; a new start. A fresh page to a new chapter. Sure, we can always just start over at any point in the year, but there’s something about day one, month one of the new year.

I came up with some resolutions/goals for myself for 2018. I may come up with more as time goes on but I spent some time by myself yesterday and came up with these.

  • Lose 20 pounds – theres a number I’d like to see on the scale. However, if my body looks the way I’d like and it doesn’t read a 20 pound loss that’s okay!
  • Do a push-up! – I can do modified ones aka “girl push-ups” but not a regular one. Before this year is over I want to be able to do with I want to be able to do at least one
  • Exercise at least 3x a week
  • Read my Bible every day. – right now I’m going through the book of Matthew and using the She Reads Truth app
  • Eat better. Feel healthy. Be healthy
  • Be a better mom. Cuddle more, yell less. Put down the phone more

What are your goals for 2018?
