Out With the Old, In With the New...


I honestly cannot believe 2016 is coming to an end.  I mean, where in the world did the time go?!  

Oh, yeaaaahhhh. I remember now: raising two nutso cutie-patootie kids, building a home, moving twice, running a business, and starting a new part-time nursing job.  Yep, that's where it went. HAHA!

Even though it's been cray, it's been a GREAT year.  I am so. stinkin. blessed. y'all.  I have a feeling 2017 is only going to bring even MORE blessings -- if that's even possible!

Now I know everyone always has "resolutions" for the new year.  Personally, I don't like that word.  Come January 1st, everyone is gung-ho about their resolutions.  Come February 1st, they're tossing those same resolutions out the window.  Instead of making temporary resolutions, I say make measurable, realistic, ATTAINABLE GOALS and work towards em!  


So what are MY goals for this next year?  I'm so glad you asked!  I have thinking hard about how to make this year the best ever, and I think these 5 goals are going to make it just that:


By this, I mean grow EVERYTHING.  Grow as a person, grow spiritually, and grow in knowledge. We can always be a better version of ourselves, and I want to be that just that for my God, my hubby, and my babes.


Over the last 3.5 years, there have been so many changes going on that B and I haven't had time to travel and explore like we did before.  This year we are going to take a few trips (both with and without the kids), mark some places off our bucket list, and just LIVE! 
This goes along with #1, but I want to grow my business.  I mean, I'm not trying to be Kayla Itsines, Jr. or anything, but I have so much passion for what I do as a personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist, and I want to share it with as many people as possible!  I hope to learn even more over this next year and, in turn, teach and motivate you all.  After all, YOU are why I do what I do! 


With business growth comes blogging.  I have been suuuuch a slacker when it comes to blogging lately -- sorry, peeps!  My measurable, REALISTIC goal is to blog twice a month -- but even more would be great!  I have so many blog ideas...recipes, workout tips, food intolerances, gym must-haves, etc.  I can't wait to get all of these ideas floating around in my brain down on paper (or the internet...you know what I mean).


I know it may sound like an odd goal, but these are my goals, so just go with it. This year, I'm growin a booty, y'all.  My muscle gains were postponed by my last pregnancy, breastfeeding, the stress of building a home/moving, and then the holidays.  But now? It's on like DONKEY KONG.  Ms. New Booty, here I come!

So there you have it: my dreams for 2017.  I can't wait to see these goals met -- and surpassed.  You know, because I'm an overachiever and all. ;) 

What are some of YOUR goals for the new year?  I want to know!
