Ringing in the New Year | Resolutions for 2018!

It is hard to believe we only have two more days left in 2017. We spent this entire year soaking up all of Juliette’s baby goodness. She grew from a squishy cuddly two month old to a silly and fun toddler right before our eyes.

When it comes to getting organized my brain works best with a physical planner where I can write anything and everything down. I am going on year five with my Erin Condren Vertical Life Planner. I don’t think I can ever use another planner! You can follow this link to get $10 off your first Erin Condren order if you’re interested in a new planner. Trust me, it’s amazing! My 2018 planner is ready to go and I thought I’d share a few of my resolutions. It will only keep me more accountable if I put them out there, right? 😉

+ Get back in my health and fitness routine I had so many goals and intentions for my postpartum journey and I feel guilty that I fell flat. I had a very active pregnancy and I had hoped I would continue that when I had the green light to resume workouts after delivering Juliette. I lost all of my pregnancy weight (and more) with breastfeeding alone. Although I am happy with my body I miss feeling strong and healthy. Fitness and nutrition was a big part of my life for many years and I am ready to get back to it! I will be using my Erin Condren to plan my workouts along with the FitBit and Lose It apps to track workouts, water intake, and calories/macros. I used to drink at least 100oz of water per day and I need to get back in the habit. I really need to cut back on my sugar intake…wish me luck with that one!

+ Be more consistent with Social Media I absolutely love blogging, YouTube and social media in general. It is a hobby that I can’t see myself without. This year we started repping with several brands and small shops. It has been so much fun and we plan to do more in the new year. I hope to grow my following and with that I hope we have more fun opportunities ahead of us. In the end, social media is my outlet and a way for me to document our days and connect with other Moms that I may not have the chance to meet otherwise.

+ Be more present and intentional with my time Anyone else out there start a show on Netflix and before you know it you’re three (or more!) episodes deep and you have no idea where time has gone? I am so guilty of this. I have a long to do list for the naptime hustle but I often curl up in bed with “just one” show and before I know it Juliette is jabbering away on the baby monitor. I am really good at writing down my plans and to dos but I really need to work on my time management.

Christmas 2016 vs Christmas 2017
I have loved everything about the year 2017 and I am eager and excited to welcome 2018. I hope it brings us many blessings and even more wonderful experiences. Happy 2018!
