The past week was an absolute whirl wind!!!
I baked dozens of treats – to share I promise 😉
Enjoyed a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our families.
Took the kids to Winnipeg on Boxing Day
Saw the Nutcracker on Saturday!
Shopped until we dropped and caught up with old friends!
Unpacked washed laundry and set up my new Macbook Air and printer.
And now it is Tuesday, which means it is time to…
I am choosing to write about a topic that I find special, and to make it even better Jessica Joy actually wrote on the same topic Sunday night!!! Great minds ….
NEW YEAR’S THEMES
(No I don’t mean party options lol)
A couple years back as part of the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge Amanda from Run to the Finish introduced me to the concept of choosing just ONE word as a theme for that year. She got this incredible idea from Ali Edwards‘ who uses her word to inspire her art. The idea is that you will think long and hard and choose a word that will represent you going forward. That word will inspire you and help shape your word. It is often something that you need to focus on in your life.
I wish I could remember my word, from that year, I was never very good at chronicling things like that. I am pretty certain it would have been about connecting with my family, as that is something I felt I struggled with back then.
If I had to sum last year up in one word it would be:
Last year I realized a lot of my dreams…. I ran the Disney Half Marathon. I trained and completed my first triathlon, I started a fitness based business. I feel very happy moving forward to 2015.
My word for 2015 ….
I plan on seriously CHALLENGING myself in 2015. I have HUGE goals!!!! (you can read some of them here) I will not settle in 2015 for mediocre or average or everyday. I plan on CHALLENGING myself throughout the year in many areas of my life. It also seems fitting as I am starting my very own challenge groups on Facebook through Beachbody, you can join one if you like!
I have never been one to conform, and for me choosing just one word isn’t enough, in fact I had a phrase chosen instead of a word. AND THEN, Jessica Joy in all her wisdom, challenged me. She challenged me to not only choose a word but an entire PHRASE! A Statement! So I did…
My STATEMENT for 2015 ….
I will need to PUSH LIMITS in order to succeed this year. I will not be able to complete my goals if I don’t fight hard to get where I want to be. I will not back down and I will not be afraid! I WILL PUSH LIMITS and CHALLENGE myself!
My daily task today for my TrihardMama Beachbody Challengers is for them to choose their word or phrase or theme for 2015!!!
Do you have a theme for 2015? Is it a word? or a Phrase?
I would love to have you share them with me!!
