I’m going to admit it, I am a big old grump about this New Year. I have never really been into making resolutions, but I am REALLY not into it this year. They never work for me. I don’t like giving things up and I don’t like making a goal to change something because I always end up failing.
Do I want to be healthier? Of course! Would I like to drop a few pounds? Who doesn’t! Would I like to spend more time on things that are important instead of worry about little things? Sign me up!
But making a whole list of things to give up or completely change my life? No thank you. So instead of resolutions, I am making some SUGGESTIONS for myself in this new year.
-hit the gym regularly. We were doing really well at the end of last year, so staying on that plan will be easy.
-eat a few less calories in a day. We love to cook, and we cook a ton. So I am suggesting maybe adding a few more vegetables to what we already cook.
-less guilt about things. If I want to eat a chicken fried steak, I will. No guilt. If I want to have a glass on wine on a Monday after work, no guilt. My suggestion to myself to go to the gym more will help with the guilt!
-pay off more debt. That is our biggest goal this year. We did so good last year, I think we can really make a difference this year.
So there you go, my suggestions for 2017. I pray that this year is the year of more growth, more love, and more adventure. (also more blogging…my last suggestion)
