Christmas is over. Hello Discipline

The New Year is here, everyone is busily making their plans and goals, dreaming of all the wonderful achievements to come this year. I am linking up with Darci at The Good Life Blog once more today as I ponder my goals for this grand new year.

The New Year officially starts for me on Monday. When I am in the throes of party mode, it is difficult for me to make the switch half way through the week. Therefore I always give myself to the Monday after New Years to make all the changes that need to be made. I STILL have not finished all of my Christmas chocolate. That is my “goal” for the weekend :)

1.     New Years Blogathon! Ever have one of those days in which you aren’t sure what to blog about? To kick off the New Year strong on my blog, I am hosting a blogathon that should be super fun. I have posted Monday through Friday topics for the month of January. There just fun ideas and prompts to inspire, amuse, and perhaps get to know some new friends. Participate as much or as little as you want. It’s going to be fun!

2.     For Christmas I got this little baby…. I know it is intense right? One of my goals for this month is to take some amazing pictures that make me feel semi worthy of this gift my husband got me. 

3.   Time to get back in the gym. For me, I mean this in a BIG way. By the end of January, I will be the thing that wouldn’t leave in the gym (okay maybe that is a slight exaggeration). But starting Monday my strenuous workout routine will be going full throttle. Running, lifting, doing classes, and so forth. The atrophy that has begun in my muscles will be reversed and the dimples that have appeared in unheard of places will disappear. I am so looking forward to it. 

 4.     Reading! We decided to read Les Miserables with my book club. Not the abridged version (of course) therefore the thing is like 1500 pages. I am afraid I slacked in my reading for the month of December. Not anymore. I am going to set some goals in regards to a reading minimum until I conquer this book.

5.     And finally, I am taking this scripture to heart this year. Proverbs 28:18 “where there is no vision, the people perish.” In order to be successful in various areas of my life I need to develop a clear vision for what I want and make plans of how I am going to get there. The success of my dreams, desires, and goals are wrapped up in the power of this scripture. 


  1. Love your blog and button! I'm stopping by from the Friday link up. Giving yourself the until the first Monday of the new year is a great idea! I was gonna start today, but I think I'll join you on Monday. Oh, and I'm totally going to take part in the blogathon! Happy New Year!!! *erica*

    1. Thanks for following along Erica! It is just nice to give yourself some holiday recovery time :) Honestly I think you are more likely to stick to your goals then. Looking forward to you linking up with the blogathon. It should be a lot of fun :)
