Well, hello folks!
It’s hard to believe that we are entering our last full week of August! Can someone tell me where the time has gone?!
Seriously though…I feel like it was just yesterday when we were celebrating Independence Day with fireworks!
And it feels like just yesterday when I started this blog, when in actuality, it has been a whole year that I’ve been writing these points. Should I continue writing? I hope the answer is yes!
Anyhoo…we are going to get right to this week’s post! No fooling around!
31 is with me for only one more day, which is crazy to think…ahhhhh!
This week, I want to share some of my personal goals for this upcoming 32nd year of birth as I continue to live out my cup of sunshine with daily life.
Also…short disclaimer…literally wrote this post this morning an hour before it posted…so 5:30am.
-I want to finish out my 1K For 10K journey strong by hitting my 1000 mile goal and my second fundraising goal of $16,000.
Anyone who has been following my running journey from this year knows that I hit my fundraising goal right at the end of July, which was a mind-blowing moment for me. But, I can’t stop there! 16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year, so by the end of the year, I’m looking to raise another $6000…$1.00 for every child diagnosed by the time it is all said and done. You can donate at 1KFOR10K.COM.
-I want to give myself one night during the week to sit in either my bedroom or living room to read. I want to read at least 3 books by December 31st.
It is no surprise that I’m always moving and on the go, so this is a big one for me that I will need to work hard on to keep myself accountable. I’ve already said “no” to a few entities that will free me up more than usual with the upcoming months, so slow and steady! Any good book titles? Send them my way! Please and thank you!
-I want to make sure that I stop letting social media allow me to have reactive emotions.
This one is always a work in progress and I have definitely gotten better. Once again, slow and steady wins the race! Not going to lie, but de-activating Facebook might be something on my plate for the future in 2020.
-I want to increase my body weight to 175lbs and embrace my body as I continue my fitness journey.
I have loved working on my body and my fitness journey since I started with my AMAZING personal trainer, Zach Musser two years ago! My ideal weight is something I want to try and reach in the next year since it has been a challenge to do so with all my running. Becoming comfortable with my body is not something that comes naturally for me and being able to incorporate fitness into my life consisntely has helped boost my confidence greatly. And I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m very self concsious about myself.
-I want to minimalize my belongings and allow myself to feel even more joy with the simple things.
Clutter. Clutter. Clutter. There is a time and place for it because we are human; however, my 32nd year on this Earth is going to involve DE-clutter. If it doesn’t bring me joy, then to the trash can it will go.
Simple things. It’s what I love.
-Bring back my Daily Dose of JP videos.
This is something that faded out when I moved to Lancaster because I was focused on starting this blog; however, since I have a full of year blogging under my belt, it is time to bring back the energy and excitement of these videos. You’re welcome.
Well, folks. There you have it. That’s all she wrote.
Well…it’s all I wrote. For now. In this very moment.
I have to go turn 32 now.
See you on the flip side.
Sprinkle sunshine always,
