2017 Goals

Is it just me, or did 2016 just fly by? I am not sure how it's already 2017, but, here we are, and I am not mad about it. This is going to be a GREAT year for me, and I am looking forward to everything that it will bring. I wanted to set a few goals for myself in 2017, and thought I would share them here for a little motivation and accountability.
  • Be healthier
    • Cliche, I know, but since I moved to my current town a couple years ago, I really fell off the health and fitness wagon. I stopped eating healthy and working out quickly became an unwanted chore. Needless to say, I'm the heaviest I've ever been and unhappy with where I am at health wise. With our wedding just nine months away, what better time than now to get back at it? I have started a weight lifting program with one of my girlfriends and we are now two weeks in. I can already tell a huge difference in my eating habits and can't wait to see what kind of results the workouts bring. 
  • Spend more time with family
    • We always try to spend as much time as possible with our families, but let's face it, sometimes life gets busy. This year I'd like to focus on enjoying more time with both Michael's and my family. I'm hoping we can get a weekly dinner or game night together with his family and see mine more than just a couple times a month.
  • Run at least 3 races
    • This goes along with the first goal, but I'd like to complete 3 official races this year. In 2015 I completed 5-10, and then last year I only did Once the weather gets nicer (go away ice storm), I intend to get back to running on a regular basis.
  • Blog more regularly
    • Last year held a lot of changes for me and as you can tell, my blogging kind of went on the back burner. Now that I'm settled in my new job and am planning a wedding, I hope to get back to blogging regularly! Be on the lookout for a lot of wedding-related posts this year!
  • Spread joy
    • Who doesn't love it when someone does something thoughtful for them? Be it a friend or even just a stranger, I want to spread joy and positive vibes this year through kindness and I also want to focus more on the positive things in my own life. These days, I think the world could use just a little extra kindness.

What are some of your goals for the year?
