Get My Race On
I’ve joined a team to do a Ragnar Relay that goes from Huntington Beach to San Diego in April and the BMO Vancouver Marathon in early May. That takes care of the first part of the year. Getting back into race mode is good for my soul.
Grooving in My Kitchen
When I cook more, I eat better. So I’m going to get back in the kitchen (thankfully I love to cook) and try out some new healthy recipes more often. Like you, it’s easy to get in a rut. Chicken anyone? So I’ll hit the Cooking Light magazines, my new Skinnytaste Cook Book and get to cooking! Wish me luck!
Money in the Bank
Last year I started to actively set aside money from all of our family’s income sources (hubby, work, boot-camp,my business consulting side work) into a few different accounts such as long-term savings, vacation fund, new oven fund, etc. This year I’m going to continue the trend but get a little more aggressive in my savings. Having even a little money in the bank for emergencies or unexpected expenses makes for good peace of mind.
Be More Present with My Family
I pride myself on my ability to multitask. Granted, I get a lot of stuff done but it also means that if I’m home with my kids and trying to check email, plan a workout, or write my blog, the kids get short shrift. In full disclosure, my 15 year old could care less but my 9 year old gets tired of asking for breakfast or a snack 4 times before I feed the poor kid. So I’ll try to work on not surfing the web, updating my FB status while out to dinner, or doing work when I’m spending time with them. Unless my 15 year old wants to snap a selfie of the 2 of us, then all bets are off. I take whatever nugget of affection she wants to give. But you get my gist.
I’ve tried to focus on a multitude of areas because let’s face it, I can use some improvement.
Please share your goals or resolutions and if I can help you in any way.
Now go run!
