At the beginning of every year I have a list of all the milestones I want to achieve and how to make myself better. It sometimes takes the New Year to force me to switch things up. And clearly I’m not alone. That’s why there are tons of gym deals in January; all of a sudden we all want to be super fit and healthy again. The New Year is like pressing the restart button. But every year, midway through, I look up and wonder where has all the time gone?
We get so consumed in our daily lives that we forget about those important resolutions we made in order to make this year better than the last. So every year around June, I always begin to reflect on if I have been achieving these goals and holding myself accountable. This year I’ve had the opportunity to document my New Year’s Resolutions and it’s been very cathartic. I’ve enjoyed sharing my thoughts and actions with you so much because it’s forced me to stay more connected and focused on my intentions. It’s like having a thousand of my closest girlfriends root me on. I have not yet reached every milestone but I see small successes and that’s progress.
This year I vowed to feel good from the inside out and to get my sexy back! I am happy to say that I am getting more sleep, YAY! I don’t always make the bedtime rule of 10pm but I have been forcing myself to turn off all electronics, finish chatting with my hubby and get in the bed earlier. The nights I do get those full 8 hours, I feel so much more energized and ready to attack my day. I wake up reciting my inspirational mommy mantras and I am ready to go. I won’t share how the beginning of my day looks on nights I only get 4 hours of sleep (it’s not pretty).
