2013 Resolutions and a Welcome to My Blog!

I’m a few days late on this one, but when the new year came, I decided that it’s about time I start a blog. I often find myself wanting to share a new recipe I’ve just tried, new outfit I’ve bought, or a new beauty product I’ve found.. so I’m excited to have a way to share them, and hopefully eventually people to share with!

A little more about me:
I graduated college in August and moved back to my hometown in Southwest Florida. I have a job I love here, as well as my family and my wonderful boyfriend! I love baking and cooking, and have a bit of a sweet tooth when it comes to chocolate and ice cream! My pinterest is filled with recipes (both healthy and ohhhh so bad for you) that I hope to actually test at some point..although I know I’ll never get around to many of them. I love exercising and finding fun new healthy recipes, but my current work-life schedule has left little time for either, maybe this little blog will help me keep myself accountable a little better?

New Years Resolutions:
Rather than the obvious, “Lose weight” resolutions, I wanted to go with a few specifics that would be easy to follow, and even easier to hold myself accountable for.

1. Run 3x a Week – I used to run just about every day, but have definitely fallen out of that habit, so I thought 3 days a week would be a great place to start!

2. Bring Lunch to Work at Least Four Days a Week – The restaurant at my work has great food, when I just eat there once a week! Not only does bringing my own lunch save me money, it saves a whooooole lot of calories too! Just because they call it a salad, doesn’t make the Cobb healthy :/

3. Eat Healthier Snacks and Less Ice Cream – My boyfriend has a serious ice cream and gotten me hooked…no bueno!

4. Make more time for friends and fun – I’m sorry to say that since I’ve moved back to my hometown, I’ve been VERY bad about making time to see old friends, so I really want to change that this year!

5. Read 55 books this year – I love to read and am so happy that I have time to read real books now that I’m done with school. I read 53 books last year and am bumping it up to 55 for this year.
*Most of my books I read last year when I had a lot of free time in the summer, so I’m beginning to second guess my goal, but here’s to hoping!



What are some of your resolutions for 2013?

    Hi! Welcome to the blog world. I found your blog by way of Hungry Meets Healthy! One of my resolutions was to keep up with my blog, I did really well in the beginning and then let it go… I actually just moved back to Maryland form Southwest Florida, after living there for two years.
