The blogsphere is starting to fill up with posts about the year that is coming to a close and posts about goals and aspirations for the year that lies ahead. I thought about not posting until after the New Year, as I did not want it to appear that I was just following the trend.
But 2012 was a really good year for me – and that deserves to be celebrated. Here are the big events that made this year so special:
- Micheal and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary in March.
- Joycelen turned 2 – how is that possible, she is still suppose to be a baby. And let’s not talk about the fact that her 3rd birthday is less than 3 months away. Sniff.
- I started this blog.
- I turned 30.
- I attended Fitbloggin and met some absolutely AMAZING people!
- I started a new job that I LOOOOOOOVVVVEE!
- I came to terms with the weight I had gained (and seemingly could not lose).
- I started training for a figure competition.
- I realized that training for a figure competition did not work for this season of my life.
Yeah, 2012 was a good year. And I am optimistic that 2013 will be even better. In years past, I wrote extensive and exhaustive New Year’s Resolutions – and then failed to meet them, which drove the perfectionist in me crazy. This year, I’m doing things a little differently. I am setting 5 big “resolutions” . These 5 resolutions are based around the five things that matter most to me: my faith, my family and friends, a healthy lifestyle, me as an individual, and this blog. Each month I will set smaller goals that will help me achieve those resolutions.
Resolution One: Deepen my faith and grow spiritually.
Resolution Two: Strengthen the relationships of those that I love most in the world – my family and friends.
Resolution Three: Develop the healthiest lifestyle that I can. This includes embracing fitness, continuing to work on my relationship with food, and getting more comfortable in the kitchen.
Resolution Four: Do things just for me!
Resolution Five: Grow Redefining Kim’s readership.
