Goals for the New Year

Happy New Year! 2015 was a wonderful year. The highlight was welcoming baby #2 into our lives. Little Isla arrived early November and she is the last chapter in the “babies” part of our story.


I spent the majority of 2015 focused on growing a healthy baby girl and knowing that it was my last pregnancy, I enjoyed every single minute of it.


Now that she’s here safely, growing and thriving, it’s time to set some new goals for 2016. This year I plan to…

  1. Set a new PR for my half marathon. I would love a sub 2 half marathon. My time to beat is 2:03
  2. Try a tri. This past summer, I spent a lot of time on my bike because running just became too uncomfortable with the growing belly. There were some days, where even walking was a pain in the ass. Literally. Biking always felt great to me and I want to do more biking events in 2016.
  3. Have more date nights. No matter how strong a marriage is, new babies/life changes can put stress on a relationship. It’s very easy to get wrapped up in your new bundle of joy and forget about the person who helped bring her here. This year, I want to have more date nights with my husband, try new places, and spend more time with one another. A new schedule change should help that.
  4. Stay caught up on the girls’ baby books. One of my projects that I wanted to get done while I was on maternity leave was to get caught up on Madelyn’s baby book & photo book as well as start Isla’s book. I’m not 100% caught up, but it’s better than it was before.

I have a few more goals for this year that I’m keeping tight lipped for awhile, but I’m excited to share then once the time is appropriate.

Do you make goals or resolutions for the new year? How did you ring in 2016? What are you looking forward to most about the new year?
