New Year's Resolutions That Will Stick This Year.

New Year. New Me! Year after year I usually set resolutions but never stick to them. My resolution last year was to birth my child, and become a mama. Not really a resolution someone would typically say but I never stick to my resolutions year after year so I figured... well that will happen so... that's what I'm sticking to haha! But this year is different. Very different! One being I don't work a regular 9-5 job anymore, and I can finally set goals for myself physically, financially, and business wise... I wasn't truly able to before. And now I have a very strong urge to get back in shape or at least better shape than I am now. I do this all for my son, hubby, family, and to connect with y'all. And I'm so blessed to be able to do this thing as my job! There are so many exciting projects ahead (happening soon) that I can't wait to share with y'all. If it's a hit it can really take my business to the next level. Which means John and I wouldn't have to stress about money anymore. Isn't that what we all want is to not stress about money? Well this year my goal is to make it not a stressor anymore. Pay off debt, travel more, and spend more time with family and friends. Life is too short so why not live it how you want to right?

So let's dive deeper in what I will be doing to implement some of those resolutions I just mentioned above. 

Become Physically Fit (For me)

Meaning, my goal is not to gain abs by the end of this year, but to be fit, healthy, and the best "version" of myself. I started a 12 week program the other day through SWEAT app, and can't wait to follow this program out and see what my results will be like when I'm finished. I will also be doing Barre classes as well.

I have also started eating healthier. For breakfast and lunch, I eat the same thing every day. 

Breakfast: Protein smoothie and protein shake. I love the Boobie Body protein powder. It is non dairy, vegan, organic, kosher, gluten-free, non gmo, helps boost your milk supply, contains no sugar, and many other wonderful benefits. And bonus it is super yummy. For protein bars, I eat the cliff bars. I always the pack of 12. 

Lunch: Either steel cut oats sweetened with pure maple syrup or avocado egg sandwich on Ezekiel bread. 

Dinner: This is where I typically don't eat the healthiest but I am definitely getting better. One thing I have been doing is eating Clean Eatz. They have meal plans, and come out with different meals every Sunday which is when you order for the week. On Monday is when you would pick them up. Unlike typical "meal prepping," you are able to eat different portioned out meals every day. Bonus they are super yummy and tasty. Also they have the option for you to order food at their cafe, and y'all their "nachos" are seriously the best ever. The nachos are sweet potato chips, topped with shredded beef, guacamole, salsa, pepper and onions. So good!!!! Highly recommend if you have one in your area. 

Once spring time rolls back around, I am going to start getting back into walking with Luca like we did the first three months of his life. I highly enjoyed taking him on walks at one of our local parks here. 

No more financial burden

When you read this you are probably thinking oh lord she has gotten into network marketing again. But no no I haven't. Kuddos to those who have made a living doing that, but it is not for me. Since starting blogging, being a virtual assistant, and a IG growth strategist, I have started a steady income where I can contribute to bills and life stuff every month, and take some of that burden off of my husband. Which I know he appreciates haha! But with all of my business endeavors, I am able to continue to grow my income, and set my own goals. Pretty much the sky is limit and there is not a cap with how much I can make. Hard work will pay off if you keep on keeping on. That being said, none of this will come easy, and never in my life have I taken the easy way of anything. I always fight hard for what I want but always with the best intentions. 

At one point during undergrad I was working part time, doing clinicals, taking 7 classes at once, and having a social life. It was tough but I did it. For graduate school, I was going to school full time, working full time, pregnant near the end (so sick during it all), and graduated with honors. I am not saying any of this to brag but to show y'all anything you put your mind to you are able to achieve. Never ever give up. Never listen to those people that put you down or not make you feel worth it. Because in high school, yes I cheered competitively. but I had so many insecurities and health issues that held me back from a lot of things. One being having petite mal seizures. Having epilepsy affected my memory and it was very hard for me to remember things. As years went on they slowly starting going away, and now I no longer have them. But I remember at the time, feeling like a weirdo and feeling like I could never be successful because of it. 

So here's to hustling this year, and continue to making connections with all of y'all out there. I am so beyond pumped to see what this year holds. Last year was pretty amazing, but I feel like this year will be even more amazing. 

Here's to many adventures with Luca, traveling as a family or even who knows maybe by myself with friends. Here's to being a happy, finding time to spend  quality with my hubby, grow closer to Christ, and loving on my sweet Luca all day every day. 

I could go on and on about my resolutions this year, but for now I am going to stop. Let me know what y'all's resolutions/goals are for this year. I would love to know!
