This is what two residents and I decided. New Year, New Rules. You can throw out the things that didn’t work for you in the past and begin again. And, if you find out in a few days/weeks/months that these rules aren’t working for you, then you haven’t failed – it’s just time to adjust and that’s ok.
It’s ok to try new things and for them to not work out. No one is judging the person who tries – only the person who does nothing.
This year, I am trying to be more grateful for the amazing life I have. My husband is the best – he takes care of me and loves me hard in all the ways he can. My friends and family are getting married, having babies, chasing professional goals, and traveling to visit us and other parts of the world – and I get to be a part of those stories. Plus, Mr. Bear is learning to come find me for snuggles every morning – in a way that only our little Bear nugget can.
This year, I am trying to be more healthy, so I can keep my amazing life going for a long time. I used to workout like a crazy person and eat so fresh and so clean clean. Well, with marriage comes love (handles) and now I’m learning to get back at it. Starting with… a Clean Eating Challenge by my friend Megan Greb! And likely a 3 Day Refresh from Beach Body. Because baby steps are good for me and I need to learn to curb my crazy cravings again. (Also, I’m looking for a gym and even a trainer to visit once or twice a week, so if you have any suggestions throw ’em at me!)
Those are my goals for the new year. Be Grateful. Be Healthy.
The rules I follow to reach those goals may change from month to month, but that’s ok. I’ll keep my eyes on the prize. I’ll create some good habits for a good life. I’ll (hopefully) be sharing this journey here with you all – because I’m really grateful for the gift of my very own website 🙂
