It's a New Year! Let's talk about resolutions!

It's that time of year again.... time to reflect on the past year and figure out what you want to change and see what you can do better.

For me, I have the SAME resolutions every year, work out more, eat better and lose weight. Obviously I fall off of the resolution wagon if it's always the same resolution.
So this year I'm changing them up a little, making them more attainable.

1. Get in 10K steps a day (I was on track with this over the summer, I got busy with my business and fell off badly) I have also found if I don't make a point to walk in the morning, at least two and a half miles, I won't get half of my steps in at all for that day.

2. Drink a gallon of water a day. (Again, I was doing well with this and then, honestly, I don't know what happened but I can not get my water in during the day) I fill a gallon jug and then hope to empty that by the end of the night, it's usually left at 1/4 full.

3. As a family, start eating better. More veggies and fruits, less junk and less eating out! This will get us all healthier and my budget healthier as well!

4. Spend more time with my family, enjoying them and not stressing. I have already taken a huge step in this direction by backing off in June from my photography business. I am burnt out and need a big break. (this will tie in with my next resolution)

5. Start to enjoy photography more. It's become a job and not a hobby anymore. I love it and I love that it has helped us to pay bills, feed us and take us on trips but I have let it get out of hand on my end, not enjoying it at all. So I'm starting with a project hosted by Sarah Cornish of My 4 Hens, 52 weeks. One photo a week for 2018. I am going to do this and learn to love my craft again.

6. Go back to school. This also ties in with taking my business down a notch. I never went to college after High School, I want that. What do I want to do? I'm  not sure yet... time will tell.

7. Stop saying yes to things I do not want to do just to be nice. Do others think about my feelings as much as I think about theirs? Probably not.

8. Blog more. I HAVE to get on here at least once a week. My problem is I find it hard to always have something to blog about. Hoping to change that!

So that's quite a list but I think it's doable.
What are your resolutions for 2018? Above anything I hope you make it a fantastic year! They go by so quickly we need to slow down and enjoy!
