Current // NEW YEAR Resolutions

New Year, New Me, Hopefully with the help of these commitments to myself.  MIA, is an understatement.  I have been SO mia this year already.  I just needed a little break at the start of the year.  I took two weeks off after having Christmas, New Year, and most importantly my sister's wedding.  I had a lot going on at the end of 2016.  So I wanted to bring in the new year feeling stress free and ready to take on 2017 with style, restaurant reviews, and hopefully lots of adventures for y'all to be apart of.

I am, yes, in the middle of the month, share a couple 2017 commitments I am making for myself.  I am not calling them resolutions, because I always break those.  These 5 commitments I am making are to better myself and everyone around me. 

1. Be realistic about my eating habits:  I travel a lot and I love food.  This combination does not go well for wanting to drop lbs like crazy.  So I am going to make eating yummy and healthy a priority when I am at home.  I am also going to make better decisions about what I eat on the road.  I don't know about you but I just find it painful to deprive myself of all the things I love.  But I also don't want to get out of control or put my health in jeopardy.  So instead of saying "no" to myself everyday. I will think harder about what my body needs instead of what it wants all the time. 

2. Stick to my to do list :  I am notorious for just putting it off another day.  Especially with Atlanta traffic.  If I am home, I don't want to leave and get stuck in traffic.  My plan is to have a day where I get all my SHIT done, groceries, errands, returns, mail, ect.  I just want to get done what I need to get done and stop waiting until the last minute.  I am going to start making list and start getting things done. 

3. Limit social media in the morning and evening :  this is the hard one.  I, as a blogger and human, love social media morning, noon, and night.  But sometimes it starts getting in the way of relationships.  My goal is to start being away of who is around me and when I am aimlessly scrolling. So my plan is to have a schedule in the morning.  It will hopefully be as followed: Read scripture, have coffee with Reuben, make bed, workout, then a little social media.  Night time cook dinner, spend time with Reuben, conversation, little social, bed.  I also want to give up the social media scrolling before I sleep.  I don't want to be one of those people who does it all the time.  Even though I love it there are other things to do with my time.  Its going to be hard but ultimately I think it will make be better about getting my blog post and social media post planned out and make the time people spend with me much better. 

4. Working out :  So this is not my favorite thing to do, but it has to be done.  I turned 30 in 2016 and my body just its looking the way I want it to.  I want to be more toned and a little tighter around the stomach and arm areas.  I also just feel like it makes me feel better when I workout.  I never want to start it but once its over I am 200% glad I did it.  So not much else to be said except for get my butt off the couch and work out. 

5. Save that money :  I want 2017 the year my bank account grew 3 times its size.  I want to be ready for any life curve ball.  I want to be able to save I save my money.  I am making goals and sticking to them.  That top or pair of shoes can wait this year.  That doesn't mean I will be doing well fashion post, I just have to work hard on making connections and being creative to bring you the latest fashion trends. 

6.  Be kind :  I read a quote on MLK day that said " I have decided to stick with LOVE.  Hate is too great a burden to bear" Martin Luther King said that and meant it.  I want to say this over and over again and mean it.  I don't hate anyone or anything, but I also don't want to even get close to that feeling either.  So in 2017 I chose to always be kind.  This means less road rage, giving that person the parking spot, not getting angry because I am late, not getting political with people, and most of all excepting everyone for who they are even if they don't agree with me.  I found myself being very defensive at the end of 2016 and I don't want to be like that.  I want the Lord to be my center and always be kind to everyone, you never know what they might be going through. 

2017 is going to be a year of growth for me.  A year to work and saving for this Georgia girl.  I want to be an example for people around me.  I want to be someone, someone looks up to.  I am going to be that woman who holds her own and makes things happen.  So keep following along.  All your support and constant love for this blog mean the world to me.  Big things are coming for myself and SELL EAT LOVE this year so make sure you keep coming back. 

with all my LOVE
