looking forward

good morning!

doesn’t the new year seem kind of anti-clamatic to you sometimes? or is that just me? don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with my friends and being with people I love on NYE…













{bag of nouns = best game ever}




IMG_2705 IMG_2706 IMG_2704…but now I always feel this pressure to change something in my life. i’ve never made NYE resolutions, until last year and i ended up messing up my knee and not following through with the biggest of my resolutions. the blogworld made me feel like i needed resolutions so i made them for the first time last year. this year, it seems like people are taking my route and making NYE intentions instead :) that’s what i’m talking about people! (like, here and here).

so here are my intentions for 2013:

1. no mo’ stress – in times of stress just remember to look at my life and think about the big picture (easier said than done).

2. run happy – right now i’m loving running when i want and how i want. i’m loving not feeling pressured to follow a training plan. i love being able to go out on a friday night and not worry about eating dairy or getting up early the next morning. don’t get me wrong, i want to sign up for races this year but i like the idea of not putting pressure on myself

3. 365 day project – i’m going to (try) to take a photo a day for the entire year! i don’t know what i am going to do with all of them but i plan to make another tab on the blog for these photos. i’m going to try and get better at using my DLSR, specifically composition. the theme of the photos will be composition. for one photo a day i want to look at what i’m photographing in a more artistic way.

5. drink more water – self explanatory

6. call friends and family more – i want to pick up the phone to call my friends and family more. i’m not a phone person by nature but i think it’s just like exercising, eventually it will become habit. i always get off the phone with friends and family and think about how much i love talking to them. i want to do this more! i also want to send out birthday cards (i know that’s stretching it).

7. more time for US – 2013 has been the year of weddings. A’ and I have been to 9 amazing wonderful beautiful weddings. i have loved being there for all our friends and family’s simchas. however, A’ and I want to make this the year for us. i can’t wait to wake up on saturday morning with NO PLANS and just do what we want to do in the moment. i want to take more trips around florida’s west coast and explore with A’ by my side.

8. attempt to do 5 unassisted pull-ups bye the end of the year! i really want to achieve this!

well…that’s what i’m thinking for 2013! nothing too crazy but all things that will improve my quality of life and just make me all around happier and healthier in my body and spirit.

and now i’m off to go start the New Year off right with a nice easy run. it’s absolutely gorgeous outside!

About S2S

I've always been somewhat concerned with getting physical activity and eating healthy. My parents were always doing active things with my sister and I growing up and cooking good foods for us. I work out 6 days a week and recently began to get serious about it! I'm just learning how to cook and so far it's been fun. I enjoy hanging out with my husband, my family, and my puppy in Tampa. I got my undergraduate degree in Finance but after two years in the corporate world I have decided to go back to school at USF to become a teacher. It has been the best decision of my life, aside from marrying my husband! I travel to Orlando and Boca Raton frequently to visit the in laws. I'm always up for new challenges and am always willing to try something once. From running in my sneakers to walking the beach in my sandals - I'll share all my adventures with you. Enjoy!
