My non-resolutions for 2014


My non-resolutions for 2014!


Yes, this year is my year. I am going to be 40 in May... oh my, yes, I said 40. I plan to be fabulous at 40! In order to be fabulous, I have some changes to make. I got derailed from some of my goals in 2013 and it's time to claim my life again. No more excuses! 




Cook for myself 4-5 days a week:
I am a horrible planner, so I am not going to be making food prepping goals yet, but I will cook for my family 5 nights a week unless there is a school or sporting event that gets in the way of this.

Get out of Debt:
I will budget monthly. Each month I will have cash that I am allowed to spend on gas, groceries and fun. I will save money each month and use it to pay off debt. Any extra money from jobs will go in savings for an emergency.

Get to the Gym or get a run in 5 times a week:
There is really no excuse for not doing this. I will do this and I will post about those workouts to keep myself accountable.


What are you goals? Do you set goals or make resolutions??

  4. I love cooking for myself, so much so that sometimes I just don't ever want to go out to eat, LOL! It's funny to me to think about people who go out to eat too often, lol! ;) Happy New Year - good luck with your goals!!!!

    1. It's embarrassing that I don't. Being a single mom, it's turned into just getting us both what we want. A lot of times it's chicken from the grocery store or something, but I know that I will eat better if I spice things up a bit. Good luck with your goals too.

    2. Hey now! I love that grocery store chicken - ;) Sometimes I crave the chicken off the salad bar so much that I have to make a stop even when I am not planning on driving in that direction! LOL!

  7. Good luck! My biggest goal right now is to get myself out of bed earlier in the morning so I have some extra time for whatever other goals I decide to set.

  9. An early welcome to the "40's" my friend. I am not a meal planner either, I am awful at it, however I always shop fresh so I have many ingredients available in the house to whip up whatever we feel like or sounds good. :) I am not a "resolution" fan myself, I prefer the word "goals"..Happy New Year

  10. I hear you. I turned 42 in October, and I'm not much of a menu planner, either. I just bought a frame to make a dry-erase menu planning board — and managed to follow my plan all day today. Now, to keep it up.

  11. Sure sounds like you got this year sorted! I haven't made any resolutions for 2014 and I am not really sure I want to. Like you, I am pretty bad at planning things out, but good at getting my butt in gear when I need to, so I think this year I will forgo the resolutions thing and avoid disappointing myself (when I fail to follow through) and just give 2014 hell instead!
