Goals for 2015
It’s that time of year where I am reflecting back on the past year… where I started, what happened, and where I ended up. 2014 has overall been a pretty good year for me, and a lot has changed.
At the beginning of 2014, I had just gone through a pretty devastating miscarriage, and I was feeling sad and ready to make some positive changes in my life. I had started running, eating healthier, and making some attempts at being more peaceful and positive. I think, for the most part, I was able to keep that mentality and expand on it some throughout the year. Then, in August, I was blessed to find out we were pregnant again, and I may have used it as an excuse to stop trying so hard to be healthy. I stopped running, and I was so exhausted in the first trimester, that I pretty much abandoned my cooking in exchange for fast food.
Now, in my second trimester, I am slowly weaning myself off those bad habits, and hope to pick up momentum during this year. And since I am such a task-oriented person, what better way is there to establish good habits than some good old fashioned goals?
So, here they are. My goals and ambitions for 2015. I am hoping for the best year yet.
1. Have a baby.
I’m currently more than halfway through incubating a bambino, so a little baby should appear sometime in early spring. Bringing home a healthy baby boy is definitely one of my goals for this year. Bonus points if I can get through labor sans pain meds.
2. Stop talking about politics with my family. And on facebook.
It’ll just keep me out of trouble. I’m hoping since there are no major elections in 2015, this will be easier than 2014. Or what 2016 is bound to be.
3. Do Yoga, every day. And meditate.
Do you ever see the hardcore yogis? They are the epitome of zen. They ooze happiness and love. I want that. I need that. I have been doing yoga off and on for several years, but I have never managed to incorporate it into a daily routine, so I am finally going to make that happen this year. Namaste.
4. No fast food.
It’s so gross and bad for me… but oh so convenient. I’m not doing it this year. No fast food. Not even if I’m really, really tired.
5. Let go of judgement.
I don’t consider myself a terribly judgmental person, and try to make a conscious effort not to be, but I think there is definitely a human tendency towards it. Part of the yoga and meditation gig is to be more peaceful, loving and accepting of others. I want to let go of the judgment and any negative feelings and just be happy.
Those are my goals for 2015! I am sure some others will come up along the way (I really want to run a 10k at some point), so I will be adding some as they come up!
