SMILE! What a great reminder for a Friday, eh? And who better to show you how than the cutest little William!
My parents watched William earlier this week, and they sent me photos and videos all day long which made my heart so happy. My mom was sitting with William while he ate lunch and she asked him how much he loves Yaya and Pops. Check out that grin! If that doesn’t say love, I don’t know what does! Now William will smile upon request. It’s amazing, and I take even more pictures of him than before, if you can even believe that.
Of course, William got in some guitar time with his one and only Pops.
As we’re a week into the new year, I’ve been thinking about goals. I don’t really set resolutions, but there are things I’d like to improve on. Granted, I could have written this post in July as they’re always areas I’m striving to get better in, but now seemed like a good time for a bit of a “refresh,” if you will. Here they are:
- Fitness: I have got to get into some routine. Right now, I do my before school workouts with my co-workers twice a week. Those are 15 minutes long, which is better than nothing, but definitely not the intense sweat sessions I used to have. I usually workout once on the weekend while I have someone to watch William. I’d like to increase the number of times I workout to four. Ideally, it would be five, but I want to make sure my goals are attainable. This means I really need to try some at-home workouts, something I haven’t been too fond of in the past on a consistent basis. Anyone have any suggestions?
- Food: MEAL PREP! Even if I can prep just one large meal to get me through lunches during the work week, it would help so much. I’d like to do that on the weekend so I’m set for the week. I’m also looking for new crockpot recipes for weeknight dinners if you have any!
- Blog: Blog more consistently! I used to blog religiously Monday – Friday, but now two or three times is the norm. (Though this week, it was four times! Wahoo!) If I can get into at-home workouts, I’d like to share those with you. I feel like I completely overload you with William photos (I mean, can you blame me?), but I would like to share ideas you find useful, too. If you have anything specific, let me know, as always!
- Personal: Be more patient. Don’t get me wrong. I have a lot of patience. A LOT. I teach fourth grade, so it’s a given. I’m always patient with William. Sometimes by the end of the day, after William has gone to bed, I have zero patience left. I need to remind myself to take a few deep breaths.
That’s all I’ve got. I’ll leave you with this little winter bunny:
Bunnies sniff with their noses, don’t you know?
What are your goals / resolutions for 2016?
