My Goals for 2015

Happy New Years Y'all! There is something so wonderful about the clean slate and fresh start that a New Year brings! I used to never be a goal person but, my husband totally is so he has turned me into being totally more of a goal person. I'm linking up with Erica to share my New Year's Goals in hope that if I post my goals, I will reach them!

I want to give my absolute best in the classroom this year! Sometimes I get comfortable and end up just doing the same thing that I did last year. I want to get out of that habit and try new things in the classroom, even if that means I need to spend more time prepping things and staying late at school. I think that also means that I just need to become better at time management.
I have got to get working on my TPT store. Right now, I just have several freebies up but I want to finish up some products that I have created and post them for sale. I would love to have my store up and running smoothly by the end of 2015.  
I also would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to go to Vegas this summer for the TPT and I Teach K conference! The Mister has even talked about making a big trip of it. We will see!
 Oh Gosh. Financial Goals. How I need these. I need to become a better saver {period}. When I was in college, I was so good at saving money but, especially now that we have a house, I just want to spend all the money on things for the house! So I guess I really just want to become better at spending money on things that are "wants" and not "needs."
It's real, y'all. I am going to do the Whole 30. I am not doing it in January because really, I am not prepared. I haven't read the book yet and I want to do some serious recipe searching and meal planning but I have committed to do it for the month of February. Whole 30 is 30 days of no sugar, dairy, grains, beans, and alcohol. If you know me at all personally, I am a sugar addict. FOR REAL. I have never dieted or eliminated any foods from my diet so jumping in and doing Whole 30 is quite scary but the Mister said he will do it with me so I am excited for the challenge. Let me know if you are doing it too and we can team up!
Before Christmas, the Mister and I joined a gym. We have been members of a gym before but I have never been fully interested in working out. That poses a problem when your husband is a personal trainer, huh?! Well the Mister is seriously the best for dealing with me. I feel like I am doing better at wanting to go to the gym since I am committed to making the gym a part of my routine.  
Confession: I have never liked running. LIKE EVER. My least favorite part of PE in school was doing the mile run. It was the WORST. However, I am determined to become a better runner and have already reached a mini goal of running a mile straight without stopping. For me, that is big and I am going to keep on going!
For my personal goals, I want to spend more meaningful time with my husband, family, and friends. The older I get, the more that time means to me! I want to be all in to diving deeper in my relationships.
I told the Mister the other day that I want to become better at praising God immediately for all he is doing in my life. I often jump to conclusions and think that my success comes from my hard work but in reality, I know that it is solely because of the Savior working through me. I want to become more aware of that and be quick to give him glory for everything because without him, I am nothing! So thankful that his mercies are new each morning!  
I hope that 2015 is the best year yet for all of us!

  1. I don't like running either! I do love being outdoors and having some peace though! And it's cheap. :) I'm going to give it another try.
