I’ve never done a word of the year before, but I loved reading everyone’s last year and I think for 2015 it might be a good idea to try. For this year I’ve chosen the word FIT.
The most obvious application of this, of course, is health:
- Throughout 2014 I seriously improved my diet, began exercising, and lost (and kept off!) 14 pounds. This past week I ran a full mile without stopping for the first time (and did it for several days in a row!). I want to keep that up. I want to stay fit. I have about 6 more pounds I’d like to lose, I want to switch from T25 to PiYo, and I need to keep working on improving my diet and taking care of my body.
Obviously, I love all things home. I read a bazillion blogs and want to rearrange my house daily. I see a new trend and I want it immediately:
- My house is awesome, and I want to focus on filling it with things I really love and that truly reflect my style. I want to fill it with things that fit, not just the hottest thing out right now or the cheapest thing I can find and fix up. I’m going to work on making my home more intentional. I also think it’s time to start rotating out the hand me downs (that were always meant to be place holders), for what they are holding the place of. I am a grown up and I can spend money on brand new, never been used furniture… even though it pains me to do so.
Time management was a bit of a stressful issue for me in 2014 too:
- I work full time at a community college and this past semester I taught 3 courses in addition to working full time, managing this blog, and maintaining relationships with my husband/family/friends. I need to learn that not everything needs to fit. I want more free time and less commitments. What’s the point of making all this extra money if I don’t have time to spend it on day trips and dates with my husband, or get aways with friends, or more time with my nephew?
Do you have a word of the year? Share it in the comments or link up below!! I’d really love to hear all about it, and I’m super nerdy excited to keep track of my word throughout the year.
