Happy New Year!
Here's to a great and goal filled 2014!
I decided to start a new blog! I used to write a parenting blog, Loving Heart Mommy, but this year I want my writing to have a different edge and I plan on covering many different subjects, topics, and the like.
Now that the festivities of Thanksgiving and Christmas are behind us, its time for a fun filled year with what I hope for all many goals and accomplishments! I know we all have had our New Years resolutions but many of those thought out goals are never really finished by the beginning of the next year. This year I aim to actually accomplish my goals and to keep moving forward, becoming bolder and brighter each day! Not only do I have goals planned for myself but also for my family.
I have a lot to plan and prepare for! Just to name a few, my daughter will be starting Kindergarten this Fall, I will be "hopefully" entering into Health Sciences at my local college. My daughter will continue her services for her Autism as will my son. I need to be able to juggle my very busy family life and my career oriented one, as well as keeping the peace and helping my children grow developmentally.
I have a few normal goals for myself as well. On most of our lists this year is staying fit, getting in shape, staying strong and healthy. Eating better and healthier. I usually stay on top of this for myself due to my Crohn's Disease but with a house full of children we tend to just do what is convenient and what is not always the best solution for a healthy diet. I aim to have healthy meals planned out, I'm not against snacks or all fast type foods but as long as we are incorporating more of a healthy diet in our lives the better we will feel and the healthier we will become. Good nutrition is always best for growing minds.
I know our Spring breaks and our Summer vacations will be fun filled, most likely trips to the beaches, mountains, water park, skating rink, plenty of outdoor fun! I want the children to become interested in getting out on the lake, fishing, tubing. I loved fishing and tubing as a child, still do!
I have thought about some extra-curricular activities for the family. For example dance for my children and myself (Swing), cheer, gymnastics, karate (I wouldn't mind doing karate again as well), swimming is a plus as well because my children are still learning to swim.
