2020 New Year Resolutions.... But 3 Months Late 😅

Hey Y’all!

I hope that your 2020 has gotten off to a great start! New year, a newly motivated you! When the new year starts to roll around, I sit down and think about three resolutions for the coming year. I don’t resolve to lose weight or go to the gym, etc., because I know that I will “fall off the wagon” with doughnuts or tacos. I try to resolve to do three things that will impact my future, my health, and my spirit.

For my Future Resolution, I want to pay off all of my debt. January 1st, I sat down with a calculator, pen, and paper, and wrote out a budget to pay off both of my credit cards. As long as I stick to the budget, I’ll be debt free by September!

My Health Resolution is to change my eating habits and to tone my body. I love food. A lot. Tacos are life for me. My boyfriend is more of a plant-based eater, so I have taken to adding more fruits, vegetables, and plant-based meals to my diet.

To combat my taco days, I’ve started 21 Day Fix. I love that the workouts are 30 minutes and not too jarring on my knees. I’ve noticed toning in my arms and legs and, y’all, I cried the other day when I found definition in the outer abs area. I’m super proud of my commitment the last two weeks and I’m ready to end my last week strong!

The last resolution is my Spirit Resolution. This year, I didn’t set the goal to “Read the Bible in a Year”. I’ve tried that and failed when I get to Numbers so many times. There are a lot of names that, honestly, bore me to read. So, this year, my resolution is to read my Bible everyday. I use the “First 5” app to do a daily five-

minute Bible study that focuses on one Book of the Bible at a time. Right now, I’m in Ezekiel. I love that this app breaks down the Books by Chapter so I can really dig deep and learn something. I don’t get to go to church while out on the waters so, it’s a nice way to feed my soul with Godly teachings.

So, those are my three resolutions for 2020! What are your resolutions? Do you have an accountability buddy? Someone you call or text to hold you accountable or are you crushing your goals on your own? Drop me a comment telling me what you’re resolving to do or, if you don’t do resolutions, drop by to say hello anyway!

I hope you all have a great 2020! I can’t wait to see what y’all accomplish this year!

Happy Adventuring,

Hollie :)
