2017 new year resolutions

i love making new year resolutions. i really do. not that i think they are easy to keep because they really aren't and i have made many resolutions over the years that i have yet to keep. most of them concerning health and weight loss. but i still think they are worth making. i love the beginning of the year. i feel like it's like buying a new journal, starting over. i have the whole year to make this my year and i plan to do so. so here they are, my 2017 new years resolutions.

1. read 13 books. a few years ago i made the resolution to read 12 books which was reading one book a month and i did that, so this year i am upping to to 13 this year. i have really been slacking on reading and that is something that is important to me. so 13 books it is!

2. go to bed early and wake up early. obviously there are times where this isn't possible but there are plenty of nights where i am just home and i am staying up until 1am and then feeling horrible the next morning when i have to get up and get brooklynn ready for school. i don't want this to happen anymore. so i am going to try to be in bed by 10pm on school nights.

3. take my health more seriously. i know this seems very vague and it is. but there is just so much that needs to change that i don't feel like spelling it all out. i just need to take it more seriously. i want to live a long and healthy life and the choices i have been making aren't leading me in that direction. i don't drink, i don't smoke, i don't do drugs, but the food i am putting into my body are not what my body needs. so it's time to start eating the foods that my body needs. 

4. go to the gym 5 times a week. or if i don't make to the gym do something active at home. this honestly will be the easiest of all my resolutions i think which is crazy because i used to hate going to the gym. but i have found the most amazing gym that i actually love going to. it starts my day off it the best possible way. if you live in austin you should check out burn boot camp because it is the best and it's changing my life. 

5. get pregnant and stay pregnant. after having two miscarriages in the past year i'm hoping that the positive changes in my health will help with having a healthy pregnancy. here's to hoping 2017 is my year!

now i'll leave you with some photos from a gloomy day hike we did on christmas eve!
happy new year, everyone! 2017 is going to rock!
