Resolutions Reevaluated

Fitness, Life January 6, 2017

Last January, I made a New Year’s Resolution to stay on top of my household chores by using a weekly cleaning schedule. I printed the schedule out, stuck it on a bulletin board in the bathroom, and promptly forgot all about it. By January 2, I had already failed. Resolutions are like that sometimes. Good intentions falling flat. As a women’s fitness specialist, I see this most often with diet…

How Setting Mini-Goals Can Help You Reach The Finish Line

Life July 18, 2016

On a recent trip home to visit family, I told my sister that I wanted to get back into running again. Even though I have been working out pretty consistently over the past year, I haven’t gone for a run in what seems like forever. Running can be hard on my body, especially when autoimmune issues pop up. But I’ve been feeling good lately, better than I have in a…

More and Less

Life January 2, 2016

As I ponder a few goals for this year and try to decide on my One Word, I started working on a “More and Less” list. Things I want to do more of and things I want to let go of a little. It seems like a non-threatening way to tiptoe my way into 2016. Here’s what I have so far… – More tea, less wine. – More grace, less…

Goals Revisited

Life December 6, 2015

At the beginning of the year, I set five goals for myself. Today is the day I look back and see how well I did (or didn’t) do with them. 1. Pare down my wardrobe. How I did: I tried my first capsule wardrobe this year, and I have to say, this was my biggest success. The goal was to be excited to walk into my closet, not overwhelmed. My spring…

Grace for the journey

Life May 28, 2015

I recently posted about my very first capsule wardrobe. I had been intrigued by the idea and wanted to give it a try. I was feeling pretty good about it until a few commenters mentioned that I still had way too many clothes. Hmm. Was I doing it wrong? Is there some kind of minimalist scale I’m missing? I started to get nervous. Then I thought about what my goals…

Goals – An Update

Life February 17, 2015

We’re halfway through February, so I thought it would be a good time to see how I’m doing on my 2015 goals. I would love to hear how you’re doing with yours too. Any goal worth working towards requires periodic reevaluation. What am I doing well? What am I completely avoiding? Where can I improve? Here’s where I stand so far this year. 1. Pare down my wardrobe. Last week…

Goals > Resolutions

Life January 6, 2015

I’ve never been much for New Year’s Resolutions. Mostly because they are usually about trying to stop doing something. And when I tell myself to stop doing something, I just want to do that thing. A lot. All the time. It’s all I can think about. So a few years ago, I started setting New Year’s Goals instead. Unlike a resolution, a goal is something positive to work towards. So with my new…
