Set Yourself Up for Your Most Successful Year

Posted December 30, 2015 in new year, goals, new year resolutions and 6 more


One of the reasons that most New Years resolutions fail is because we don't take the time to plan.

I don't even know how many times I started the year saying I wanted to lose 15 pounds. Then, just a few weeks later, I was skipping workouts or going back to my unhealthy eating habits. I felt like I had failed, so I gave up on my resolution. 

My downfall was that I didn't have a plan. I hadn't created a clear action plan that would help get me back on track when I veered from healthy eating and working out. Accomplishing a goal never happens on a straight road. We go up steep hills, take U-turns, get lost and back track. But when we have a plan, it makes it easier to keep going even if we've lost our way for a bit.

There are a few tools that I use to create plans to accomplish my goals. These are super simple things that will help you plan for success!

My Goals for 2016 {Peacefulness and Joy}

Posted January 1, 2016 in new year, goals, new year resolutions and 5 more


2015 was an amazing year full of exciting changes, taking risks, going on adventures, facing challenges, having success, failing, beautiful lessons and having fun. 

{Here's a look back at 2015}

I started a business! What?!?! I never imagined that I would become an entrepreneur. I'm still in the beginning stages of creating my business and, to be honest, I feel like I have no clue what I'm doing. My fears and insecurities about starting a business, and my increasingly busy schedule, had me feeling overwhelmingly stressed by the end of the year.

Luckily, I had two weeks off from my full-time job during the holidays (I work for a university). I decided to take some of that time off from blogging and working on my health coaching business as well. It was during this time of rejuvination that made me realize that I wanted to create something different in the new year.

While I do make time to exercise and make it a priority to eat mostly healthy meals during the holidays, I definitely indulge more than usual.

I ate more sweets than I typically do, I indulged in a comical amount of cheese and I drank wine almost daily during my nearly two weeks off from work. 

So, like you, I'm feeling the need to get back on track now that the holidays are over.
