Hello 2013! A Few of My Personal Goals are...

Tuesday, January 1, 2013


A few years ago my husband and I started a tradition that I love.  Around the end of each year we go on a date where we write down new goals for the upcoming year and go over goals that we wrote down for the previous year.  I find that writing goals down helps so much more with obtaining them because that way you see them every day.  I also love sharing my personal goals with my husband because I feel like we hold each other more accountable and help each other accomplish them when they are shared.

A few of my 2013 goals are:
  • Complete a half marathon.  I have my very first one coming up in just a few weeks and I have been having dreams where I psych myself out!  I am not going to psych myself out and I wish I could punch bad dreams in the face.
  • Eliminate negative relationships.  I do think that friendships and relationships take work but I do not think they should be a constant struggle.  One of my favorite quotes is, "Be who you are and say what you feel because those those mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."  I will be keeping this in mind (no pun intended) during the new year.  
  •  Do a juice cleanse.  After I am done nursing (I will be so sad when it is over) I plan on doing a juice fast with my husband.  This means no coffee and no wine, just pure organic fresh pressed juice.  Just typing this out I am nervous (at least about the no wine part ha). 
  • Spice things up in our marriage.  I plan on doing a whole post on this but you get the gist. 
  •  
What are some of your goals for 2013?

Hope you all had a wonderful New Years Eve!  Here is to an even better 2013-- I am cheers-ing you with my giant cup of coffee right now :)

One of my big goals is getting healthy! I just had a baby a few months ago and need to get on the healthy band wagon :)

Have a wonderful New Years!

Happy New Year Lindsay! I too have been thinking about a juice cleanse.

That's a great list of goals:) I am looking forward to hearing about the juice cleanse. One of my resolutions is to organize my digital photos and stay on top of it. Further, I want to do quarterly photo books.

Great goals! Thanks for sharing :) I have also been planning on doing a juice cleanse. I am trying to decide if I'm going to supplement with food or do only juice. Are you planning on eliminating food during yours?

1. good luck with your half! :) once you get out there the adrenaline and the crowds will pump you up. and then you will be hooked!
2. I eliminated toxic relationships last year (2012) - i didn't think friendships and relationships should be censored and separated. best decision ever.

One of my New Year resolutions is the same as yours: Surround myself with positive people. God has blessed me and I need people around me that will help me live out my purpose.

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Natalie- I might supplement with a little food (fruit) since being type 1 diabetic can be unpredictable. I will do a post on it when I start with all the details :)

Your resolutions sound great- very realistic and attainable. I, too, have resolved to become better at eliminating unhealthy relationships from my life. I also want to be better at keeping in touch with people I don't see every day, and also to be a better friend to those I do.

I can't wait to hear about the juice cleanse...I've heard a bit about juice detoxes before and am thinking about trying one out. And good luck with the marathon!

Hi Lindsay. Happy New year.. great goals.. i respect the eliminating negative relationships! You know I hv been surrounding myself with not so good crowds and theyre really depressing. :-( i couldnt really bring myself to avoid the crowd because i thought it was wrong or unkind of me to do that but now i read your post and i thought "finally! im not mad after all!":-) i can start my new year being at peace now haha..

I am actually doing a juice cleanse very soon! I am psyching myself up for it now, trying to eat as healthy as possible. I just got done watching "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and it opened my eyes. I have about 75-100 more pounds to lose and the thought of getting all the toxins out of my body and starting fresh excites me! A new me for a new year :D Hope 2013 is a wonderful year for you!
