It’s that time of year again! Every year I love looking back at my New Years posts to reminisce on how I thought the year would go and write out a few new resolutions. To start, click here to view my New Year’s post from 2015.
I had 4 goals last year, 3 of which I am happy to say are 100% still going strong. The first was to “Keep at it” in terms of sticking with Crossfit. Not only do I not see this leaving my life anytime soon, I showed my commitment for a good 8 months while ‘keeping at it’ through out my pregnancy!! If that isn’t commitment… not sure what is.
My next goal was to eat clean. This one lasted…. for my first trimester of pregnancy. I then wanted nothing but white pasta and tuna sandwiches…you win some, you loose some…right?
My third goal was to travel more. I still made it out to England in March despite already being 11 weeks pregnant, but this didn’t hinder the travel bug. D and I have some great travel plans pending and I am already kicking off the New Year with Bennett’s first trip to the Bahamas!
Finally, if you follow my blog… you know by now that there was one HUGE change in our lives last year. My final resolution was to get settled. I didn’t come out and say it, but part of that was thinking about children. D and I didn’t know the timeline of making this happen, we were just insanely lucky to get pregnant and have Bennett so soon! Now all we have to do is buy a house (one day SOOOOON!)
So whats up for 2016?
- Enjoy motherhood. I will be spending the majority of 2016 on maternity leave and I couldn’t be happier. Being at home with B is a totally different experience from working, but it has been amazing so far. I feel as if I have a full year to focus on me. I know that sounds a bit odd because my life revolves around a baby, but I think it really helps to put my life in perspective. My family and my well being are the most important things in this world and being able to be home and experience every moment of Bennett’s life is truly amazing.
- Work hard. Having a baby is no easy task for your body. Everything has changed. I don’t have all the time in the world to eat well and go to the gym. It is going to take determination, super scheduling and hard work to keep on track and get my pre-baby body back. With the support of D I know it is possible though. We have already managed to get our workout routines sorted despite juggling a baby.
- Go vegan. This one is more of a lifestyle change than a New Years resolution, per se. I have been pescatarian/vegetarian for a very long time, but I decided it was time for a change. I stopped eating most dairy products a year or two ago, but didn’t quite kick cheese. Realizing that my only reason was ‘because it tastes good’ was not a good enough excuse for me any more (especially when I think that is a silly excuse to eat meat). So feeling like a bit of a hypocrite I am making the change. It won’t be easy (at first) but I am excited to make the switch!
So 2016, here we go! Happy New Year everyone!
Ready for New Years! Bow tie and all!
Until next time day dreamers.
