I love making resolutions and setting goals. I have big plans for 2016 and I can’t wait to get started. In fact, I kicked off my goals for the new year in December. (why wait?) I have decided to set a goal of more ME in 2016.
Don’t get me wrong, I also have set goals to be a better mother, wife and friend… but I feel like I spent most of 2015 focusing on everything and everyone else but me. And it shows. I’ve gained a few pounds, I am always exhausted and I just haven’t been taking the time to do things that I enjoy. No one is to blame but myself. My husband is super supportive and always willing to take the kids to give me some time. When I do get time alone, I always feel like I should be doing something productive. Laundry, errands, cleaning… you get it. Since I spend so much time during the week at work, I feel horribly guilty using any of my down on JUST me.
My monthly goals will now include set time for myself. I want to try new things, plan date nights with my husband, have fun with friends, enjoy activities with my kids that are not only fun for them.. but for ME too.
You may have seen my tweet this past week after I met a good friend to workout. Something we used to do on the weekends together all the time. Something that got lost in the shuffle of 2015.
That is part of my more ME in 2016… trying at least one new type of workout a month. I am planning on sharing my exercise excursions with you here on the blog. It will help keep me accountable, and maybe introduce you to a new workout you have been thinking about trying.
