Ok so I have to make concious decisions and put in the effort if I intend to achieve my goals. Setting them is not enough by itself. It’s time to get to work!
I joined the local YMCA. There are other gym options that I think I might have preferred but my daughter Brianna has friends with memberships too and so this made more sense for now.
The Jackson YMCA is actually a pretty nice place. However you have to get past the overwhelming smell of chlorine when you first enter the facility. It was really strong today!! 😝 But the fitness center is usually very clean and the staff is always super friendly!
I’m going to go back to the beginning for just a minute….did I mention I registered online?! I did! It worked great the information was accurate on arrival and my check in was super fast! Good job YMCA tech team that was a major upgrade!
Ok back to the gym I made my first trip of the year this evening. Ran a little more than a mile and concentrated on my upper body workout. It felt good, but I had gotten used to working out with my bff Amber this was a lonely workout!
I mentioned to my husband that it was super busy Tonite and he said great lots of people to talk too! I was like …wait…what?! I’m not talking to strangers!!! Lol a little cliche I guess for a gal with a blog! I basically talk to strangers all the time! 😂
So here’s the question when your working out do you talk to people at the gym that you don’t know? I don’t think I could! So if your chatty Cathy at the gym how do you go about that? Now I’m curious! I’ll keep you posted on my work out adventures! Have a great night!
I spent the day creating a new look for barnwood and baked goods! I hope you like it! I find it’s easier to navigate and puts all the newest content right up front!
Along with my new look here on the site I created…by myself…a new Logo! I think I’m in love I like the font and clean crisp look. It’s so hard to make decisions like this for a hobbiest blog. I mean how much is too much lol.

I’m looking forward to the new year, it’s always my favorite time of year. Setting new goals the thought of starting fresh is awesome! So how about some new resolutions!
I find myself still not in the physical shape I would like to be in so although cliche…I will lose a few stubborn pounds, drink more water, drink less alcohol lol, and generally get to feeling good again! I have lost almost 20lbs in 2017 but I’m still not where I want to be. So onward and upward. Maybe this will open a door to healthy recipes in the “kitchen” on this blog site stay tuned!
Another area of focus for me this year, I will continue to get more organized and I will start to tell people NO! I’m bad about this if someone needs a volunteer or a donation I’m always on board. I still am but sometimes it would push me to the very brink trying to get it all done! So, I will try to be organized to the point that I will better rknow my limitations, help where and when I can but try really hard not to stress myself out so much.
My third resolution, I intend to find more time for my spiritual life. I really miss going to church and the community that comes with having a church family. I’m not going to go into the details of why I stopped going. I use the excuse that my job occupies all my time, but in my heart I think it’s a lot deeper than just a scheduling issue. I will pray more, find time for church, and I will start to rebuild my relationship with God.
So, there it is! I have a lot to do this year! I hope your resolutions are meaningful to your plan for the year, and that 2018 is the best year ever! Thanks for reading!
