2014 snuck up and Christmas passed way to fast... and now it's back to full blown reality. 
i'm sure many of you set your new years resolutions, goals and focus of the year... 

today i wanted to share with you my two resolutions and a goals for the month (next 5 weeks):

r e s o l u t i o n s :
no texting and driving
must be at complete stop to view, text, use phone other than phone calls.

be more mindful and loving
i like to think i give my full attention and love to those around me when we spend time together. 
but i know there is plenty of room for improvement! 
when spending time with friends, family and loved ones, i want to be more mindful about their time, needs and feelings and learn to love and serve them better. 

g o a l s:
more yoga
 over the past few weeks i have let my yoga practice take a backseat. but its time to get back on my mat. breath, leave my stress and empty my mind and take the time to deepen my practice again. 
over the next 5 weeks my goal is to take 16-20 yoga classes here and here.

more pilates
because of my dear friend kendall i overcame my fear and took my first pilates class in 2013! 
tighten, tone and the perfect compliment to yoga - pilates at BEYOND is just what my body needed and what the chiropractor prescribed. 
over the next 5 weeks my goal is to take 3 classes per week. 

no alcohol. clean eating
for the month of january (as of 1/6/14) sp and i gave up alcohol. i did it last january and as tough as it was it was worth it. i felt great and lost 5lbs to boot!
also in january i am committed to 'clean eating' - back to 2 protein shakes a day and a healthy, non processed-food, lean meal. 

what are your new years resolutions and goals for the month/year?!
happy new year to each of you sweet readers!

  1. Such good goals! I really want to try yoga, I've only ever been to a few classes but I totally admire you for how passionate you are about it. Pilates seems like a great compliment to it! We are trying to eat really clean around here as well. It makes a world of difference in how I feel and sleep!

  2. I would love to get into yoga. I definitely need to start eating cleaner and I am hoping to make power smoothies in the morning. I just need to go to the grocery store to start that one!

  3. I need to start drinking smoothies again...
    Good for you - I'm a HUGE anti-driving & texting person... bothers me so bad!

  4. “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” – I agree. It’s always better to give ourselves a good set of challenges to keep us healthy and make our year productive as well. Just make sure to consult a specialist regularly to check if your bones and muscles are prepared and in good condition for your workout plans. Keep it up!

  5. I just came across your blog and I wanted to say hi! I recently gave up alcohol too because I'm trying to get in the best shape of my life for my wedding. It's definitely hard to cut it out, but worth it! I'm excited to follow along with your blog :)
