The Sunday Salon [1.4.15]

Let’s talk about resolutions. I made a bunch last year. I kept some of them, I broke some of them, and I half did some of them.

I counted calories until I fit back into my skinny jeans. I drank more water, but I could always do better. I fell off the wagon with respect to diet coke. I seem to do better with allowing myself one once in awhile. I ran my first 10k, but I was awful about getting to yoga. I am not debt free but I am definitely on a much better plan toward getting there than I was a year ago (we paid off nearly half of our consumer debt between August and December). And I am really terrible at photo-a-day prompts.

This year, I have less lofty goals.

I’d just like to have a healthy pregnancy and welcome home a new baby. I’d like a natural, out-of-hospital birth and I’d like to exclusively breastfeed again (with a little more ease than last time, hopefully).

I want to keep working the debt free plan, but I recognize that the new baby (with his delivery and daycare costs) makes it more likely that 2016 is the year we hit our first goal of knocking out all of the non-student loan/non-mortgage debt. But as long as those credit cards stay locked up, I’m happy.

I want to eat healthy and exercise, but with a baby coming mid-year, I have no actual goals for these.

I want to read again and get back into the blogging world. I miss you guys.

And, finally, I want to be more present. I want to put my phone away more and step back from behind the camera once in awhile. When I’m with my family, I want to be fully with them. When I’m at work, I want to be fully at work. I’ll make time for wasting time, but I want to do it more consciously – does that make sense?

So that’s all I have for 2015. I know it will be a year of joy and love and sleepless nights. And I’m ready for it.

    Happy 2015!

    I get super emotional reading about people’s pregnancy’s nowadays, so all I kind of want to say is *hugs*!

    I think your 2015 goals sound realistic and wonderful. Here’s to a happy 2015.

    Making time for wasting time TOTALLY makes sense and it’s definitely something I need to work on in 2015. I think it’s a great goal. Happy New Year!

    I’m a goal setter, and often they are less measurable. I kind of take January to regroup, I remember the kind of person I strive to be, and get it together. I think your debt free plans are wonderful, so many people never get that together! I’m past the baby age and not ready for grand babies yet so I love living vicariously through other’s pregnancies.
