Refocusing. New Opportunities.

Hey There,

We are several days into the new year, but I am will writing 2016 on papers, and I probably will be until March because habit. This year I am not only focusing on a few small things that I know I can focus on, but I also asked my boyfriend for a few things that we as a couple could work on. I hope to write about the progress of them through out the year as a way to further hold myself accountable.

RESOLUTIONS FOR MYSELF:

  • Live a smaller environmental impact lifestyle.
    • What I mean by this is, I want to recycle more and I also want to eat more natural foods, which leads into my next goal for this year.
  • Live a healthier life style.
    • I want to consume more whole foods (similar to a paleo diet), and less food in general. My freshman year, I was definitely a “fittie” but as I got busier my meal prep got less and less, which has lead me to eating out more because it is easier. So this year, I want to go back to preparing more meals on the weekend so I have them during the week. In addition to eating healthy, I would like to get back in shape. I hope to work out 3 times a week starting and go from there. I used to work out at least once a day, but that was too consuming for my life and I missed out on enjoying the beginning of college. With it being my last semester, I certainly want to enjoy it as much as possible.
  • Do one thing a day that will help my future
    • This can be save money by not buying coffee that day, updating my LinkedIn, applying for a job, anything that can be beneficial.
  • Be frugal
    • I want to really focus on saving more money, and not relying on my parents as much this semester, as I will be taking on “the real world” come May. My parents are wonderful people, and have helped me out a lot. I know I can come to them when I really need them, and I will still be able to do that after college, but I don’t want to rely on that.

RESOLUTIONS FOR MY BOYFRIEND AND I

  • Pray every night
    • We often spend our evenings together as we both have hectic days between class, homework, and practice {him}. As a way to decompress, and to grow closer to God we want to pray before we end the night.
  • Go to church together
    • We currently are different denominations of Christianity, so we have not settled on a church that we both feel at home. So our mission the first few weeks back to school is to settle on a church to attend regularly.

We as a couple don’t really consider these resolutions, but we want to continue to support each other when it comes to our dreams and aspirations, as well as, on a daily basis. We want to be aware of each other’s feelings and comfort one another when we have a rough day. This semester is going to be really busy for both of us, but we are excited to tackle our last semester of college together.

Newbie

Hey there, so this is my first official post on this blog. Blogging is a whole new adventure for me. I don’t know how long I have wanted to start one, and the amount of blogs I have read about starting a blog, but here I am finally taking the plunge. I just want to apologize in advance for any mistakes because I am learning still!

I have a passion for fitness, fashion, and saying “yes” to adventures. I am a strong advocate of living life. I am excited to bring together a community who enjoys the same things as I do! Please check back for weekly structures post, daily adventures, and inspiration.

Thanks lots,

Aud.
