2017 Goals

Hi there! It's been a while, hasn't it?  I'm baaaaack.

In December I spent some time soul searching and I thought long and hard about how I wanted to prioritize my life and how I wanted to spend my time and energy in 2017.  As a result, I have a lot of wonderful goals for 2017 that center around self-care, health, unplugging, and pursuing my passions.

In the spirit of starting anew, I'm going to restart this blog thing of mine to help keep me accountable.

  • I've still been running a lot and I rounded out 2016 with about 875 miles.  In 2016, I aim aiming for 1000 miles.  Gotta keep moving forward, right?!  
  • To help fight seasonal laziness, I joined Classpass to get my butt off the couch and sweating in the winter.  So far, my favorite places to go in Chicago are Flywheel, Shred415, and PureBarre. 
  • I've limited my use of social media to 2 times per day and have removed all of social media off of my phone. You would be so surprised what a difference that makes - outta sight, outta mind! 
  • I'm doing my best to be purposeful about who I spend my time with and also really trying to be present and in the moment when I am with friends and family. 
  • I am committed to dry January and the Whole30.  I'm currently 24 days in and going strong!  I've never felt so good, even if I do really miss red wine.  Only 6 more days! 
  • I also became a Beachbody Coach.  After using Shakeology for a year and loving it, I thought it was about time.  Reach out if you want information, support, or products - I'm happy to help!
This year, I'm going to try to keep this going.  Can't wait to see what adventures I encounter along the way! 

Cheers to 2017!
