I feel like there’s two types of people, resolution makers or people who wing it going into the new year.
I don’t know about you but I’m not a wing it kinda gal and I absolutely hate the pressure of a yearly resolution, word, mantra. So in order to feel in control of my year I’ve been making monthly goals.
Each month I’ll focus on either a big goal or two OR a few mini goals.
For January I’m deciding to take control and make working out a priority again. After my surgery I’ve been struggling to find a workout routine that worked for me. I’ve recently tried Orange Theory and thankfully I’ve fallen in love with the concept. I’m also making my home workouts a priority by taking advantage of our Peloton for rides and using their app for toning. I’m still obviously modifying but I’m feeling so much better taking control of my body.
My second focus this month is to make my blog/instagram a priority. It’s easy to make excuses and not put the work in but I see this going somewhere so I want to say I’ve put in all I could! That includes doing some research on the backend to see how I can enhance your experience as well as a reader/follower.
Lastly, my final focus for this month is to go with the flow more. I’m definitely a TYPE A personality and that’s not going to change but I want to take things as they come. If there’s chaos, which with 3 kids there seems to always be a mess somewhere, I want to be able to move on from it and not let it nag me. At least not nag me much.
I don’t know what February’s goals will be just yet but I plan to sit down at the end of each month and really look hard at myself to see if I’ve achieved my goals, if not I’ll carry them through to the following month along with some new ones.
For me making big yearly resolutions feels like I’m setting myself up for failure. I tried monthly goals last year for the first time and that seemed to make a huge difference in actually accomplishing what I wanted to accomplish.
Please comment below, I’d love to hear what your goals are for the new year. Happy 2019 💋!!
