I'm so excited about the New Year! This is a huge year for me! I'll be 40 in August and I have a lot of goals!! 

First a look back at 2019. Here are some of our highlights and bigger moments. 

And a few of our favorite Disney pics!! (I promise I'm still going to write all about our trip soon... I finally got all the pics off my phone and onto my laptop 

so that's a good step in the right direction haha!)

I've never had a word of the year before but this year I decided my word will be Intentional

I've been in survival mode for years and seem to be getting lazier and lazier. I justify it by reminding myself that I need the down time to cope but honestly the mess and lack of taking care of myself the way I should is simply creating more stress and chaos around here and not really helping at all. It's not helping me, my marriage, my kids or my husband and something needs to change! 

I've never been this heavy in my life.. I wasn't even this heavy at 8.5 months pregnant (never made it to 9 months with any of my kids). I've already started on a healthy eating plan (again) but this time I've also joined a walking group and bought this awesome new health and fitness planner to help me stay motivated!!

 I need to lose a lot more than 40lbs but my goals right now are to Lose 40 Before 40 and Be Fit By 40! I don't even care if it sounds corny haha! Those are my goals!! 

I'm also planning to talk to my doctor about meds for ADD. A year or two ago I would have never considered it but lately I've realized that I have to do something. I've talked to other women with ADD who have said the meds are life changing! Being able to focus and complete a task sounds amazing to me!! I get super overwhelmed and have a hard time focusing which is a huge part of my problem when it comes to housework and keeping up with everything. I know everyone doesn't agree with meds but after struggling almost 40 years if something can help I'm ready to try it!! 

My big goal this month is to lose 10 lbs and walk 33 miles! I joined an online group called 99 Walks. After you reach your goal each month you'll receive a bracelet in the mail! I'm super excited about this and praying it helps me stay motivated to reach my goal each month! I also have a nice long Amazon and Etsy list of little rewards for myself as I reach small weight loss goals. 

I was sick the first two days of the new year so I got a late start but I walked over a mile yesterday and over a mile today! I plan to keep myself accountable by posting on Instagram, posting here as well as checking in with my walking group online and hopefully joining a smaller team too! 

What are your big goals for the year? 


  1. Your goals sound great. Good luck losing 40 lbs, you can do it! I lost 50 lbs this past year!
