Welcoming 2017!

Hi all! Welcome back!

I hope 2017 started positively for you! I wish you all a happy, healthy, and successful new year!

Many people create “New Year Resolutions” and I’ve come to the point where I’d rather start now rather than wait for a new year to begin healthier, better practices. I no longer wait for the new year to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. However, I have come up with some goals for myself – I just don’t consider them “New Years Resolutions”

  1. Write a blog post every single week! This is hard for me. It’s hard for me to brainstorm topics, and sometimes it’s even difficult to motivate myself to write! But let’s hope that that will come to an end and I can share some of my thoughts, personal experiences, and some extra pizzazz to all.
  2. Go to the gym 150 days out of the 365 days of the year. That’s about 41% of the year or a little less than 3 times a week for 53 weeks. Even a quick 30 minute workout is better than nothing at all! Should I begin tracking my journey through my blog? Hmm…
  3. Delve into new food options; try new recipes. This is something that I am extremely excited about. Like I mentioned in a previous blog post, I have chosen the ketogenic lifestyle. Within this, one is supposed to eat a high fat, moderate protein, and low carb diet. This is limiting to some extent because I am kosher, but I will do my best to create delicious meals while trying out new recipes and creating some of my own.
  4. Focus on increasing my experiences and taking advantage of the internships I hold. This includes networking with the folks at my workplace, asking more questions to get a better sense of the material at hand, and proving my competence to work on higher profiles. These actions are all extremely important – so I can grow as a person and as an intern/employee (something that I always discuss in my blog posts related to work/education)
  5. Spend less on products that I don’t need. While I have been spending more on quality food, I must spend less on items I do not necessarily need especially makeup and clothing. I’d rather invest this money in other things that can bring me happiness and/or save this money for the future! That’s a better idea 🙂

I hope you all can create goals you’d like to meet sometime throughout your lifetime. Don’t wait for a special occasion, start now!
