First blog post

Here we go! 2017 is in full force and that means making resolutions to start the year out right. I actually can’t stand resolutions. Sure I want to lose weight, eat healthier and find love, but those aren’t necessarily realistic. Life happens! Things happen that we can’t control. So I’ve set out to create resolutions (really goals) that I can achieve and follow through with.

First goal of 2017 – blog. It’s the easiest way to express my thoughts (with no one telling me that I am wrong), and hell it’s free. Goal – Blog at least once a week.

Second goal of 2017 – stay active. It’s too easy to say, I am going to the gym every day for the whole year. OR, I’m going to lose 30 pounds by the end of the year. YEAH RIGHT! It’s one thing to say you’re going to get into shape. Then by January 10th, you’re dreading the gym and making excuses to not go to the gym. Goal – Be active for at least 30 minutes every day. Walk, run, gym, yoga, etc.

Third goal of 2017 – eat better. Going out to eat is inevitable. I am not going to turn down a dinner date with a friend (or boyfriend) just because I have need to hit the gym. I’m 30 years old (about to be one year older), and it’s time to make some food changes. No more binging on late night pizzas. Goal – Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet and eliminate junk foods (within moderation).

The worst part about making resolutions is come December and you realize, SHIT, I haven’t accomplished any of my goals. This revelation actually makes me feel terrible about myself. Today, I have made achievable goals that should I accomplish them, I will feel great about myself.

Cheers to a great 2017! Let’s make it spectacular.
