I always say I’m not the type to make resolutions come the new year because I find them to be too broad and unspecific. I like to make smaller, specific goals for myself that I can work towards from month to month. Whatever the definition, I love the feeling of opening a new yearly agenda and starting fresh with a new set of goals.
The thing about resolutions or goals is that you never have to truly fail. I didn’t really reach all of last year’s goals. Some I rocked, some I fell short on and some had their ups and downs but they all came with their own learnings. This year I’ve decided on three main goals, which I will chip away at in small chunks every month.
- Condo improvements – This is the heftiest goal for the year. I intend to paint the whole place (minus Liam’s room, which was painted last year) before potentially replacing or refinishing some furniture, updating some of the hardware (cabinet knobs, light fixtures, etc), etc as budget allows. If anyone with a good design eye has any advice, send it my way because I need all the help I can get in that department!
- Get my group fitness certification through Canfit Pro – Getting my fitness certification has been something I’ve wanted to do for several years now. Since starting my “Where to Workout in Red Deer” series, I’ve really come to realize how much I truly love fitness and want to share that passion through instruction.
RunSurvive my first half marathon – EEP! I’m registered for Seawheeze this year so I’ll be crossing half marathon off the bucket list.
What are you hoping to achieve in 2017?
