I make resolutions every year, and I break resolutions every year.  Honestly, why are they so hard to keep?  I think we set goals that are too big typically, that require too much of a life overhaul.  Sure, some people can stick to their new diet and exercise regimes but most people simply forget after a few weeks to remain motivated.

So what’s a woman like me to do, with lots of things I’d like to accomplish both personally and professionally? Create reminders for myself in the things I see and use often to keep me motivated once I set a goal so that sticking to it is easy!  Enter Shutterfly – my favorite place to customize calendars, motivational mugs, and the like for my friends and family.  I’ve always used them to give personalized gifts that people love, and I figured that by applying my 2016 New Years Resolution plan to stay motivated to their awesome products it will be easy to do!

Check out the video I made to see how I customized a bunch of cool stuff for my team at TheLoDown and myself.  We’re going to have a great year!

  1. This is awesome! I think I’m going to copy your idea of making that calendar for my mom :)My resolutions are to start doing some kind of fitness (maybe yoga? swimming?), grow my blog big enough to make some money, record an album I can use to send as a demo.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
