2013 Goals and Life in Pics

Since I'm on a roll with procrastinating, I thought I'd FINALLY share some 2013 goals. I know we're rapidly creeping into April right now, but better late than never right?

I don't have specifics like increase my savings by $______ amount of money, because I don't have a job right now (hopefully I can save money in summer), and also because I'll be draining my savings to pay for school next year (post to come later on that). My 401k and roth IRAs are still sitting pretty, and I'm happy to see them grow even though I stopped contributing.

2013 Goals

For 2013, I want to focus on eating clean, getting active, stressing less, smiling more, and staying positive. All very cliche I know, but I absolutely need all of these things in my life right now. 2012 was an awesome year, with the latter half of it running me to the ground. I didn't have a social life, had lots of breakdowns, cried often, and spent almost every waking minute of each day studying and trying to be perfect. When this happens, I don't do my best because I tend to lose sight of other priorities. It reminded me that life is too short to grow grey hair early, and life is meant to be enjoyed. There's always light at the end of the tunnel...and someone, somewhere in the world definitely has it worse than me, always.

The hardest part of goal setting this year is that I'm doing it alone. The BF and I lived together for a long time. He's always been part of my everyday life, and we formed our own routines and traditions together. Now I'm meal planning for one, workouts for one, basically I lost a teammate and this team of one struggled to keep up on her own. Although I've made goals for myself in the past, the BF was always such a motivational push to help me keep going -- having him not physically around is such a drastic change. We're coping with long distance, and seeing him more than once every 2 months is definitely better these days.

I've decided that I'll be blogging more about daily life, health and fitness, food, and recipes because I really need to keep track and stay accountable. I also want to share my life with you guys more, because I've always been really passionate about health and fitness, and it's hard having a blog where you don't talk about your other passions once in awhile. By sharing my ups and downs with personal finance, I was able to move forward and achieve goals, and I'd like to do the same with other parts of my life. Hope you don't mind!

So far, this year has been awesome. I've changed my approach for the semester and I'm learning how to manage the heavy workload and volunteering sessions. I take zumba classes every Tuesday and Thursday with my mom, go running every other day, cook my own food with lots of veggies, and spent more time with friends and family. I also want to get back to blogging, because I love this community :)

So here's to starting off 2013 on the right foot :)

With that, I'll leave you with some pictures of what's been going on in my life!
not even half of my books, my back is sad
chicken, jalapenos, avocado = my fave
chicken, broccoli, green beans
what reunions with my dog look like
a favorite pasttime, cuddling with my dog
we get lots of free stuff in law school
gorgeous hike in San Diego
my sister and I are froyo diehards
in law school, you waste paper on research
the first thing you do when you get to San Diego is get margaritas in old town.
from our hike in SD
when in doubt, make omelettes
another favorite salad - chicken, guac, salsa, crushed tortilla chips
watching my bro's varsity volleyball game
vegan "chicken" thai salad with vegan "mac & cheese"
prepping veggies so they're easier to cook
smoothies are my fave
Expect more post like these in the future =) Pictures speak louder than words....I think?! If you have any recipes you think I should try, please let me know! I have a lot of snap peas, green beans, mushrooms, and asparagus in the fridge. Also if you have any juicing recipes, I'd love to hear them too - my mom got a new juicer that I'm itching to try out.

Happy Friday!
