Workin It Wednesday: New Year's Goals!

Today I am linking up with Shay and Erika for the first Workin It Wednesday of 2017!  The topic today is New Year's Goals and Resolutions.

Last week I shared my 2017 New Years Resolutions and I am excited to share that list again and expand upon some goals I have for 2017!

Here are my Resolutions for 2017:
1. Continue to maintain a healthy weight AND a regular workout schedule
2. Continue to be more giving and charitable, volunteer more.
3. Continue to travel to see family and friends AND travel to new places
4. Worry less about what other people think
5. Enjoy being where I am and who I am
6. Run more races AND challenge myself to run long races
7.Financial/home goals:
Get ceilings painted
Start college savings for both girls
Increase our emergency savings
Put new railing on deck
Finish playroom decor
Finish guest bedroom/office update

Some goals I have for myself are:

1. Go out of my comfort zone and meet new people- I'm working on this by joining a MOPS group and volunteering at church more

2. Stick with the house cleaning schedule I came up with in 2016.  We have a four-story-townhouse and I came up with a cleaning schedule last year that worked for me all year.  My goal is to continue it in 2017 to help keep the house clean AND organized.

3. Grow my blog.  I have been praying about this one A LOT.  I want to grow my blog, and I have been contemplating the best way to do this.  Linking up to different series is one of the ways I am working towards this goal. :)

4. Work on running races again.  The last one I did was on Thanksgiving with my sister-in-law and it really got me pumped to run more races in 2017!

Some funnies...

I always love a good meme to help me sum up any situation, here are some of my favorite regarding resolutions/goals:

 I LOVE this!

 Sometimes I feel this way too...

 Change coffee to diet coke and your speaking my language :)

 Always wise

 So true!!
I snagged the last treadmill this morning at the gym

 Yes!  Yes, yes, yes!!

 I will!  I'm going to do them this year, I promise!

 Thank you! :)


Happy Wednesday y'all!


  1. Great goals! I can't wait to see some of your house projects, those are always my favorite. And those memes at the end, so funny!!

    1. Always working on the house :)
      I feel like the list never ends...

  2. Your memes are the BEST! You got this year girl!! Love the part about continuing to be more giving and charitable!!

    1. Hey Andrea, it takes time, but is so rewarding. And... doesn't everyone love a good mean :) I feel like they sum up exactly what I'm thinking sometimes :)

  3. My home project list is so similar to yours, I'd love to know your tips and cleaning schedule for a 4 story town-house. Our home is only 3 stories and I constantly feel like I'm drowning in toys, laundry, and clutter..
    PS. Those memes are seriously the best!


    1. Thanks for stopping by! I left my schedule on your blog. :)

  4. Love your goals and your memes are cracking me up! :)
