New Year, New Glow!

by - December 18, 2017

It's time to get back on track. 2018 is fast approaching and I have started thinking of new goals for the coming year.. (That also means I'm going to be writing the wrong year for the next month or so) I know so many of us are all about hitting the gym and getting that "summer body". I, however, am trying to think on a bigger scale, pardon the pun. I have decided to focus on making career, health, fitness, and overall growth goals. Sound like a lot, I'm sure, but I wanted to make mine a bit more specific.


"I love the feeling of accomplishing something new"

Career goals:
I want to grow my blog and YouTube channel following this year. I am planning to do this by first looking for mentors. Mentors do not necessarily have to be direct. You can have third party mentors as well. This means finding people who have already done what you want to do. Those people include celebs, authors, social media personalities, etc. You can follow things they have written, projects they have worked on, or books/articles that have been written about them. Follow what they did and use their tips and advice to get where you want to be. I'm also going to dive into as many books as I can handle. One of the best things I have ever been told to be successful was to "read, read, and read some more!" Knowledge is a great tool to have on your side. So, check Amazon, book stores, and even the local library to find as many books as you can. I have recently been doing a lot of searches for books by popular YouTubers, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and artists.

Health goals:
I have really been bad in this area for the past year or so. High blood pressure runs in my family, and I was diagnosed with it this year, so I definitely need to get back on track. I check my blood pressure daily and take medicine to keep my pressure in check, so I added vitamins to balance everything out. Vitamins are important to stay healthy, so taking those plus some probiotics pumps up my daily routine.Eating is also key, so some menu changes are in order for me. I have been searching pinterest lately for new healthy recipes to try. This proves to be challenging, since you never know how they're going to turn out. (Can we say, Pinterest fail?) The biggest thing for me is snacks. I love munching all day long, so keeping healthy snack around is going to have to be a must. Another thing that will be necessary, is sleep. I plan on going to bed early every night. At least that way I can get enough rest to try to become a morning person. (I said "try" so, no promises!)

Fitness goals:
Fitness goals kind of go hand in hand with health goals. Once I get my health under control, I plan on focusing on getting back into the gym. I won't be doing all my workouts in the gym though. I want to make a well-rounded plan that involves, gym, home, and leisure workouts. I love getting out into nature, so I will definitely be incorporating some fun hikes and stuff. I found a great book by Women's Health Magazine, that shows you all about different workout routines. t even goes in depth to show you how to do each move. I also have found some apps that offer workouts to do at home with trainers that work out along with you.I plan to stay away from the scale for as long as possible. Since I want to gain muscle, the number on the scale isn't as important to be as getting toned. As long as I can find something fun to do to keep active, I should be just fine.

Growth goals:
I love learning. I always have. I like the feeling of accomplishing something new. It's a great feeling for sure. In the coming year, I want to focus on a few different things. I want to learn another language. I want to learn more photography techniques. I want to take a makeup class. I want to take cooking classes. I want to travel to new places and see new things. It may seem like I want to try to accomplish a lot, but it is important to do things for yourself. After all, you are the most important person in your own life.

Well, as you can see, I have a pretty full list of things to accomplish. I'm going to do my best to stick with as many as I can. I know I will be a better "me" as long as I give it my all. Hopefully you enjoyed my post and maybe you can make your own list of goals for your own 2018 glow up!
