Wow. I can't even wrap my head around the fact that it is almost 2015. This year has gone by incredibly fast for us. So many ups and downs...
I've decided not to make "resolutions" again, but rather set some goals for myself for the new year. I've set these goals for myself in the past, but I've not been up to snuff on posting them here like I should be. Here's hoping this is the start of something good, though! :-)
So, without further ado, my goals for 2015:
First - strikingly similar to goals from the past - I want to be a better wife and mother. I have let a lot of things slip around the house just because I've been so tired, and worn out. We don't get out often, and we don't get much company, so it's really draining. I am going to work towards not letting excuses take over my life. I can do these things, and I will do these things this year.
Second - I want to get back on the treadmill. I haven't run in what seems like forever. I may not do another C25K, but I want to start getting up, at the very least, to walk on the treadmill for 20-30 minutes in the morning.
Third - This one goes hand in hand with the second one. I will get my water intake back up, and I want to get all of us eating more raw and less processed foods. I felt amazing when I was eating chicken, fruits and veggies mainly...and my coffee of course! I did "cheat" every once in a while to have my beloved tortilla chips (haha) or some ground beef, but I never ate boxed anything really. I really feel like I looked my best at that point, which made me actually feel good about myself. I want that back!
Fourth - This goes out to all things photography! I am doing a P52 again. I failed miserably at the P5214, and will be co-admin with another amazing friend of mine for the 2015 year. I am determined to actually complete it this year. I also want to learn everything I can about photography. I would love to get out and start portfolio building, too, but the fear of being labelled as a fauxtographer is really holding me back.
Fifth - Crochet. Crochet, crochet, crochet. I've reopened my shop, and I really want to make it work. I'm going to focus on keeping up on my orders, and possibly getting ahead on orders. I also want to keep up on my crochet blog which has been unpublished for more than a year now. I want to learn new stitches and techniques this year. I would also like to pick up the knitting needles that I 'inherited' to teach myself some of that again as well.
Last but not least - This poor little (not) forgotten blog of mine. I love blogging. I love sharing with people. I love writing in general. I really want to get back into it a little more.
Now, I just need to find all that time that's hanging out there waiting to be used! :-)
What are your goals for 2015? Don't be shy! I don't bite, I promise.
