Goals for the New Year, 2017 Edition.

I think it's counterproductive to set resolutions according to some preconceived notion of what things you think you "should" be doing. However, I do think it's valuable to set goals, dreams, visions and desires for your life. To live your life intentionally and with vision! So for this year.. my goals so far... (i am still working to identify some more for the year.. I cannot WAIT until my planner arrives.. )

For me, I think i'm going to focus on the following..

* Continue to develop a positive outlook and mindset with a focus on GRATITUDE!  There is a push to identify your "word of the year" and I am still trying to identify  mine.. but I am tending towards "Gratitude" as mine.

* Continue to build my health coaching business and make progress in my own health and fitness AND help other women work on their health and fitness and start their own businesses. I need to sit down and decide what this looks like.

*MEAL PLANNING.. so sick of spending money on food that gets tossed.. I plan on making bigger meals the days before I work, so i have healthy lunches and have the fridge stocked with healthy meals for my family too!! I want to get intentional about this in the year to come and I will be sharing with all of you!!!  I already have a calendar printed out and on our refrigerator with this week's meals.  No new recipes on it yet though as this is going to be a busy "short" week in our house and I just haven't gotten there yet.

* BUDGET!!! We did so excellent with this in 2015 and got away from in entirely in 2016 and our finances show it. My favorite budgeting program is "You Need a Budget" or YNAB. I have this all set for us again!

*Travel!! This year it's looking like a getaway to Columbus, OH in April (visiting the Columbus zoo and Kalahari waterpark.. ) or possible somewhere else within a 6 hour-ish driving radius, Beachbody Summit in New Orleans, LA in July, and Walt Disney World in August. I want to focus on an international trip in 2018 or 2019.. i want to go to Thailand.

*Friendships - I plan to deepen my friendships and focus more on them in the upcoming year!! I want to make coffee dates with amazing people and surround myself with women that empower and lift each other UP!

What are you focusing on in the year to come???  (Leave it in the comments!!!)

Is anyone interested in a FREE gratitude & goals group this month?? Message me, leave a comment, or find me on Facebook!!!

I am working on a vision/manifestation board in the next couple weeks to put on my bedroom wall and keep me focused and dreaming in the direction I intend..  I'll be sure to share when it is completed.
