January -Welcoming a New Year!

 Happiest New Year friends! I am always a bit excited for the new year. A clean slate! There is something about the end of the busy holiday season when the days are not quite so busy and all the holiday decor is put away.  The days become more calm giving way to thoughts of self reflection and ambitions

I am ready for a focus on health. I do realize this is very much a cliché but I had the worst cold and flu season and I am feeling very ready to work out and eat well after four months of sickness. More time at Soulcycle and the yoga studio will be a huge priority. 
As far as eating healthy I have rejoined WW. It just works for me. It is simple, keeps me accountable and there is a big push to eat veggies and lean protein. 

Now this one is a bit personal. I want to be a better mom. I feel like I am so focused on the job of mothering that I do not enjoy the girls as much as I should. I love them with all my heart but mothering can be very hard.  The big question of course is HOW do I do this? I feel I need to give myself a few assignments rather than a big vague statement of "enjoy Margot & Sophie more". 
First, put my phone away when the girls get home from school. Give the girls my undivided attention that first hour they are home. They have missed me and they need/want my attention. 
Second, I am going to focus on the positives rather than the negatives in the way of pointing out the all little and big things the girls do well. This sounds obvious but when the girls argue all day and push back on boundaries I have set it is very easy to point out what is going wrong all day! I am really hoping this sets a more joyful tone for each day. 

My home. I would love to finish decorating our bedroom. I have many exciting project needing my attention in the main bedroom and focusing on them in 2023 is a big goal of mine! 

Style...I really want to get dressed more....like put on real clothes that do not involve a elastic waist band.  I have fallen into the habit of wearing sweats daily and I very much want to change that! So getting up and properly getting ready for the day is on the my "to do list" this year. 

Professional goals. I feel absurd even writing "professional". This blog has always been such a hobby for me but now that the girls are getting older and I feel like I finally finding my voice I should create a space here that is more then something I do in my free time...like an actual job! 

These are just of the few thoughts I have had in entering 2023! Do you set intentions or have resolutions for the new year? Please share below...

Happiest New Year and looking forward to sharing more here on my little slice of the internet.
