2017 Resolutions

I’m not normally a big resolutions person, and this year I’m trying to be extra gracious to myself because in 13 weeks, we’re having our first baby (time flies!!).

I do have a few goals between here and April 24 (baby’s due date), though:

  1. Finish 2nd Draft of Book. Just last week, I finished my first draft and have since started writing the second. That means I’m reading over a lot of really bad pages that I’ve been tempted to scrap completely and am trying to work them into something better.
  2. Read 5 Classics: The Catcher in the Rye, 1984, Lolita, Lord of the Flies, and Brave New World.
  3. Limit social media usage. I’m still figuring this out. I’m toying with the idea of signing in only one day a week, or not using it before lunchtime and after 9:00 PM. This will be one goal that I plan to continue after our baby is born; I don’t want my daughter to have a distracted mom!
  4. Spend a lot of quality time with Carlos. And Fitz, too, if I’m being honest. It’s our last three months as a family of three!
  5. Keep Exercising. Walking 5x a week for at least 30 minutes and yoga 3x a week.

    I bet the social media limit is the hardest of all Emily. Good luck with them all though and Happy New Year !
