5 Goals for 2015


As we enter the New Year, I am even more excited to make my goals and resolutions for 2015. Ever have one of those years where you just have a feeling it's going to be amazing? That's this year.

There will be a best friend baby, a best friend wedding, a best friend moving back to the East coast and celebrating two years of marriage. Mixed in all of this excitement, I will be working hard to achieve my best self this year.




1. Live a healthier lifestyle

Tone It Up challenges will be completed. Junk food will be kept to a minimum. I have started to have some problems with my sugar levels lately and I think it's because of the lack of movement and poor eating habits the past month. Time to nip it in the bud and get myself back into shape. It's time to stop giving excuses to why I can't and realize why I absolutely need to be my healthiest self this coming year. 

2. Be more intentional with my time

In order to grow myself and hobbies, I need to stop spending so much time drowning in Pinterest and my Twitter feed. And looking at cat videos...There are nights where I realize I spent over an hour just aimlessly clicking around the inter webs. It also means putting down the phone, which is another time stealer. Darn you Crazy Kitchen. It would be more beneficial to work on a blog post or have more conversations with my husband. Or what he likes even better, cleaning. 

3. Grow my hobbies.

If I work on being more intentional with my time I know I can grow my blog. My time will be spent on my editorial calendar, social media planning and interacting more with other blogs to make my blog a success.

If I start eating healthier and working out, I know I can start running again without feeling like I'm coughing up a lung and actually enjoy it again. It will help me run a 5k in the very near future.

When someone asks me how I took our Christmas photos, I will be able to tell them the settings without stumbling through aperture, ios, white balance. Those will roll off my tongue and I will be able to switch back and forth with ease. 

4. Cest La Vie

Anxiety is something I deal with quite frequently. It isn't out of control but it can definitely control my actions and attitude. It leads to controlling and obsessing over things that I shouldn't and even tends to give me minor migraines.  This year I want to be able to relax and stress less over things. On our anniversary trip, Brian described me as "vacation Krista." I wasn't stressed and just let things play out as they should. I felt relaxed and it felt great to feel that way. This year, Vacation Krista will be 24/7 Krista.

5. Become a better wife

This will be a continual goal year after year. I never want to stop working on our marriage and becoming a better wife. As our lives change, I have to adjust myself and my time. Really listen to what my husband needs. Marriage is work and I fully expect to give it my all this year. And apparently that means developing a cleaning schedule.

I am very excited to start working on these goals and develop myself over this year. What are your goals/resolutions for this year?
