Intentions for the year end

Hello everyone, and happy November! Welcome back to the blog. The end of the year is coming, which means there is still time to accomplish new goals or start those projects you never got to yet. The end of the year is the time to finish the year strong.

Take the time to refocus and think about the things you wanted to accomplish or start in 2019 that just never got a boost in the year. I wanted to read 15 books this year, and I am nowhere near that goal, but there is still time for me to refocus the intention and find something more manageable for the year-end. 

Efficiently ending the year, will help reinforce old habits that may have fallen off track and can help build new patterns for the upcoming year. It is a head start on the goals you want to set for the new year. 

The holiday season is here, and things get busy. There are gifts to buy and parties to attend. You should always be first on the priority list, and during the holiday rush, it’s easy to lose sight of the things we want to accomplish. 

I urge everyone to find a few things to work on for the end of the year. Accomplishing goals is a significant confidence boost, no matter the size of the goal. I can’t say it enough; it’s so satisfying checking something off a to-do list. 

If you want to lose weight, you can start now by learning about portion control, meal planning, and learn how to build exercise into your routine.

Do you want to learn to cook healthier meals? Take the time now to start building a robust recipe library instead of trying to get it done at the last minute. You can also start planning your holiday meals to include some delicious healthy options.

Is this the time you want to build a better relationship with yourself and others around you? Start getting in the habit of doing a gratitude journal to help you refocus on the essential things in your life. Starting a journal is a great way to get your feelings out into the world and setting clear intentions with yourself. A journal will help you build stronger relationships with others. 

I can’t end this blog post without telling you my intentions for the last 90 days of the year. I always practice what I preach!  

My intentions for the end of the year:

  1. To practice patience and gratitude.
  2. To incorporate more strength training into my workouts.
  3. Do as many half marathons as I can and walk at a half marathon this year.
  4. Work on my fall wardrobe without breaking my budget.
  5. Make more time for fun.

I have shared my intentions for the end of the year. Now it’s your turn.

What are your intentions for the end of the year?

Happy New Year! Are you buying into the hype?

Happy New Year!  I hope it’s been a great start to the year for you.  I wanted to pop in on the blog because this is the day everyone is trying to get their messages out into the world.  If I read one more post about setting goals and making resolutions, I think I might freak out.  That’s funny coming from me, right?  My blog is supposed to be about finding your best self, going after what you want, and just accomplishing something. The new year doesn’t mean you needed to have everything figured out on this day.  The new… View Post

Setting my goals for 2017

Setting my goals for 2017

I’ve always said the best way to achieve your goals is to write those goals down and revisit them from time to time.  This will be my place to share my goals with you and you will hopefully keep me accountable to some point.  Things in my life are different now and it’s weird how quickly things can change.  In the past, I would have been talking about collecting states on my marathon quest or that new distance I was hoping to tackle. I feel like I’m in a place of starting over and I don’t mind it at all.… View Post

New year and new goals

New year and new goals

Happy New Year! I usually don’t make it midnight but I had to wake up to feed Baby G and I really wanted to bring in the New Year with her. My new year situation never included a big party, but this is probably the biggest party I’ve ever had. It’s that time of year when people embrace the new year, new goals thing. It’s great that people can see a new year as a new beginning. I encourage you to think of it the same way from week to week. There are people who are anti-new year resolutions and… View Post

The great thing about Mondays

The great thing about Mondays

Happy Monday everyone! Sometimes Mondays get a bad wrap because the day comes after the weekend, but it’s not always that bad.  The great thing about Mondays is it’s a time to start fresh and wipe the slate clean. Mondays are a day when I try to actually put together an outfit to wear. Here is what I’m sporting today and this has no place in the actual blog post but it’s fun, right? Monday is a day of reflection of what you accomplished the previous week and what you want to do in the upcoming week. The great thing… View Post
