Read. Write. Grow.

Goals can be tricky. They can motivate or discourage. Sometimes it’s just how the goals are WRITTEN. Have y’all heard of SMART goals? It’s a great way to break down your goals in a way that you may be able to accomplish them! But you know what… should you not completely “succeed” at your goal(s) – REMEMBER – it’s about the journey, not the destination!


Something not within SMART goals is accountability and support – Who are you going to share your goal(s) with? I’m choosing to share my goals with all of YOU! I looooove updating you all through blog posts and my Instagram on my progress. So thank YOU for your support!

August 1st, 2017 – July Recap!


Continue painting 1x per week for the month of August, then revisit goal.

Mindfully take dogs out 1x per week for an off-leash adventure for August.

Complete 30 days of yoga using the Yoga with Adriene videos on YouTube starting August 1st.

Run 3x a week for either a half hour or for 5km for the month of August.

Research CrossFit gyms in the area and do a trial class before the end of August.

Cook 4 dinners at home per week for the month of August (this is realistic for our family at this time). If we are traveling, I get a ‘get out of jail free’ card on this one… lol.


July 12, 2017 – Bride = Wide? The Missing Tile


As a family, we will not eat out more than 3x a week (this is HUGE for our family… we eat out A lot! Especially when I tire of meal planning and give up)

I will run at least 3x a week to train for my 5k race in September

I will do 3 circuits a week for the next 2 weeks – either with my trainer Nicole or on my own using her program.

July 7th, 2017 – Yes. Yes I am a Badass.


1x per day for 2 weeks mindfully cuddle one of our pets for 10 minutes.

For 2 weeks when challenged with a situation, say to myself “This is good because…” and fill in the blank.

June 26th, 2017 – Living a Wholehearted Life


Paint 1x per week for the next 6 weeks.

Explore what meaningful work may be for me at this stage in my life. I will do this through researching job postings, volunteer opportunities and maintaining this blog of reading/writing/growing.
