New Year, New Goals + 2017 Reflections

2017 will always be one of the most memorable years of my life! Marrying my best friend and getting to spend forever together was what i was most looking forward to in 2017. I promise i will have a wedding recap up possibly on our 1 year anniversary! So be on the look out for that. We gained a new addition to our family this year! I finally have a sweet niece who was born in July! We have slowly been getting our house together, but we still have a ton to do. I think its best to take our time designing and finding pieces we really want rather than spending money on spontaneous pieces. I love these reflection posts so I can look back at the years to come and see how much I’ve grown.

I celebrated 2 years of blogging on Glam Fit Foodie! I really wanted to challenge myself and grow more with my little blog in 2017 & I did. I worked hard, received some amazing opportunities and met some inspiring bloggers. I am going to have the same ambition and goals for the new year and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future. Everyone seems to love my beauty posts which i love because they are my favorite to create. Its fun to try things and share what genuinly works. I received several opportunities that i turned down because the products just weren’t something that I was comfortable promoting. I just love sharing products and tips with you all and I would never share something I didn’t love or use.

One topic I want to talk more about on my blog this year is home decor. We have a lot of progression planned with our home this year, so there will be tips and ideas for home decor coming this year. I love designing and finding pieces for less that look more expensive. Seeing everything I envision come to life makes me so happy. I’m glad Mike has an opinion on things and helps me decide which pieces to buy.

Last year I made it a point to take care of my health and i am so glad I did. I have suffered from migraines for years and if you have them you know my pain! After countless migraine medications I decided to see a chiropractor and boy am I glad I did! After xrays, this is what he found: My neck is curved the opposite direction, 2 of my vertebrates have arthritis, my atlas bone was pushed to the right side (where I experience my migraines) and my lower back is curved with a starting formation of scoliosis! The Dr said no wonder I was in so much pain all the time and didn’t know how I functioned daily. I’ve been seeing him for the past 2 months, 2 days a week. I feel better than I’ve felt in years! I’ve had a migraines maybe 2 times since I’ve been going and I would get them 4-5 times a week! I encourage everyone to take care of themselves and don’t put things off!

Staying on the healthy track, I want to try to lose weight and gain muscle mass to the point where I am comfortable. I want to encourage myself to exercise at least 3x a week. I may try a juice cleanse for a week or something to reset my body. I have a big sweet tooth and want to limit the amount of sweets I eat in a week.

In 2018, I am most looking forward to nourishing my mind and soul with positivity and encouragement. I want to continue to work hard and be kind each and every day. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me. I’m ready for ya!

Thank you to all of you for following and supporting Glam Fit Foodie. I can’t wait to create new content for you all in 2018! I wish you all a Happy new year of love and wishes beyond your wildest dreams!
