My New Year's Resolutions + 2 Brand New Workouts!

Hi everybody!!

I'm sure you're busy getting ready for the big day tomorrow....such an exciting, festive time!  As you now know we don't actually celebrate Christmas but we do always go to the zoo on Christmas Day (since nothing else is open!) so we're all looking forward to that!

So I am not really a fan of New Year's Resolutions.  Don't get me wrong...I'm all about making a goal, setting a plan, taking baby steps and finally reaching that goal....that I think is great! I'm talking about the hype and ridiculousness that surrounds making a goal only because it's going to be January 1st!  I actually wrote this post & this post on it last year!

So I guess I do believe in "resolutions" just not the kind you ONLY made in the New Year! lol

But, I've been thinking, and ironically enough there are a few things that I'm ready to change/commit to right here are my (ugh) 

2015 New Year's Resolutions!

#1 - Transition to a digital calendar!
As I divulged here in "I'm like a grandma", I keep a paper calendar....and it's getting pretty annoying! My husband never knows what's going on and I can't make any plans/appointments unless I'm at home with calendar in hand.  I also keep a hand-written food shopping list!  Also getting annoying since it's usually at home when I'm running into Publix or Walmart so I never know what we need!

Well, I've already started on this one!! I downloaded a great (& free!) app called Cozi where I can make our shopping lists, random notes/lists AND a color-coded calendar that both my hubby & I can access from our phones!! It's totally changing our lives already...I can't believe I waited so long to go digital!

#2 - Run another half marathon!
I'm planning for February or March but haven't registered for anything yet.  I really need the goal of a race to 'force' myself to run those long distances on the weekends so I'm really, really ready to plan my next half! Woo hoo!

#3 - Create (& do!) more at-home workouts!
I was creating TONS of workouts when I first started the blog (check out these Pinterest boards here & here for some really great workouts...most of which were created my moi!) & I really enjoyed it.  I haven't been creating (or doing) many at-home workouts these days but that's all about to change!  I actually created and then did these 2 workouts over the weekend and they were awesome!!

Then today I did my first Bender video in months (this one) & it made me question why I haven't done one in soooo long!! They're fast and furious - the perfect at-home workout!  I was sweating!

Stay tuned for much more on this one!!

#4 - Figure out how I want to use my NASM personal trainer certification!
I'm so happy that the studying is over and the certification is really mine....but I've done nothing with it thus far! I have/had plans to start a boot camp, train clients privately, train clients in a group...but nothing has come to fruition yet! I still want to do all of those things, I really do, but I HAVE to find the time to organize and implement!  

Now that I'm doing so much Social Media Marketing stuff the training is pushed to the back burner a little - but next year I want to figure out how to make it a (profitable!) business....something fun that I can do for myself and my friends!

So tell me....what are some of YOUR 2015 resolutions???
