TBH I’m at all times a bit of hesitant to jot down this kind of submit after I dubbed 2020 the “year of travel” however right here we go….
Hi pals! Happy Monday and HAPPY NEW YEAR! *throws confetti into the air* I’m back and feeling refreshed after a while with the fam. We bought along with pals, watched motion pictures, loved some lady time (pedicures, boba teas, buying, baking), and are back within the swing of issues this week. I hope you had an exquisite blurry week between Christmas and New Years, and hope you had a protected and glad New Years’ celebration.

For at present’s submit, I believed it might be a great time to look back on the yr, assess how I did with my goals, and set some goals for 2023.
I are likely to have blended emotions about resolutions. I’m the kind of one that typically thinks, “If you want to change something, change it now, instead of waiting for the pressure of a looming date or holiday,” however on the identical time, there’s one thing thrilling and motivating a few brilliant, shiny, new yr.
I make adjustments and set goals all year long, however that is the time that I normally set massive enterprise and monetary goals, well being and private goals, and brainstorm a theme for the yr: a mantra I can have in mind when issues really feel difficult or robust. My mantra for this yr is “gratitude.” Having a day by day gratitude apply has made a huge impact in my temper and mindset.
Here’s a lil recap of what went down in 2022.
Looking back on 2022 and my goals for 2023
I’m SO grateful that we had been capable of journey extra this yr! We went to a few of our favourite locations, like Mt. Lemmon, Great Wolf Lodge (a number of occasions), San Diego, Disneyland, San Diego again, and Vegas, and additionally traveled to some new locations, like exploring Waikiki as a family. Hawaii ended up being my journey spotlight of the yr, and the women agree; they’re already asking to go back.
The Pilot took command of one other one of many squadrons right here. While his workload has been busy, I’m so happy with him and the kind of chief he’s. We’ve had much more squadron occasions and army enjoyable over the previous yr.
Professionally, I launched Total Body Reset with Mia, stored creating Fit Team content material for my wonderful members, ending my Integrative Health Practitioner certification, began teaching extra 1:1 shoppers (digital and in-person), and it was my highest affiliate revenue yr up to now. I solely companion with an excellent small quantity of firms, and I really like spreading the phrase about their wonderful merchandise.
I did some formal enterprise teaching this yr with Dan and Nicole Culver, attended a JillFit mastermind (Jill was my coach all yr final yr!), and am wanting ahead to masterminding with another pals on this area.
Beautycounter was an space that noticed a little bit of a slip in 2022. I didn’t have as a lot time to dedicate to it as traditional, and it’s one in all my goals to proceed to develop my Beautycounter enterprise. It’s an unimaginable firm doing nice issues, and I’m lucky to have some pals on my Beautycounter crew, too!
Health-wise, it’s been a great yr (knock on wooden) and I really feel like I hit my stride with among the issues I’ve been working on. I drastically lower back alcohol consumption – you can read more about my journey here! – and have been strolling Maisey day by day. It’s executed wonders for my psychological well being and I don’t have to consider hitting 10k steps every day. It occurs fairly simply with a exercise + a day by day stroll with Mazer.
I’m nonetheless doing my traditional Fit Team exercises, educating barre, and taking lessons, like sizzling yoga, F45, barre, Sculpt Society, and hopping on the Peloton every now and then. I’ve been in keeping with meditation, journaling on my PEMF Go Mat, and getting stable sleep at night time.
Personally, I proceed to be grateful for our pals and household right here in Tucson. We have our tribe of dad or mum pals, the youngsters have their unimaginable finest buddies, and I joined a Bible research final summer time that has modified my life. I grew up Catholic, however have by no means studied the Bible on this capability, and am so blessed to have a gaggle of insightful, smart, encouraging, and variety girls in my nook.
This can also be the yr that I really really feel like I discovered some steadiness and some respiration room with our routine. I began taking 1-2 days off every week, and began reserving little open blocks or enjoyable issues to stay up for, like a hike with a buddy or a date night time with the Pilot.
It can really feel such as you’re in an infinite slog of labor, baby wrangling and chores, particularly for those who solo dad or mum for days/weeks/months at a time, and doing this has elevated my happiness and productiveness. Our babysitter began coming over the weekend, simply for three hours, and it’s been a lifesaver to get forward on content material and backend weblog work for the upcoming week.
Some of my goals for 2023:
Continue to submit content material right here, on Instagram, and TikTok
I’m not going wherever right here on the weblog, and have so many concepts for posts this yr (and extra, because of your survey responses!). I additionally take pleasure in creating brief video content material, so I’ll nonetheless be posting on IG, and begin to submit extra incessantly on TikTok. I fought the platform for so lengthy, however I do know that’s the place persons are hanging out, and I really like that it’s much less curated than IG.
Finish my IHP Level 2 certification!
I’m completely loving the certification course of and am so excited to have the ability to run the massive 5 labs for shoppers, pals, and members of the family (and myself!).
Grow the Fit Team group and launch a gaggle teaching program with purposeful lab testing
I wish to proceed to construct Fit Team – the group is all the pieces and the exercises are fiiiiiire – and launch a gaggle program targeted on well being foundations, together with elective purposeful lab testing as soon as I end IHP2. If you’re interested by receiving the data first, hop on the wait list here.
Submit one other ebook proposal
Each time I’ve write a ebook, I’m like, “WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF?” however I’ve so many concepts for this new idea. I’ve been chatting with an editor to craft the proper title and perspective for this one, so we’ll see the way it goes.
Take the crew to Europe
We are beginning to plan this for summer time 2023! The youngsters are PUMPED. A visit to Disneyland Paris is on the books, together with Rome and (hopefully!) Madrid.
Finally rip out the dang upstairs carpet
I’m fairly certain I’ve stated this for two years however it’s occurring, even when it’s me and a field shredder. I can’t stand it anymore lol.
Keep it up with the podcast
I used to be speaking with a weblog buddy and she did some digging on my podcast, and advised me it’s within the prime 0.5% globally of all podcasts. And then she laughed at me as a result of I’m fairly informal about the entire thing. I submit when I’ve content material – I goal for weekly, however it doesn’t at all times occur – typically overlook to share it on IG tales, edit it myself, and so forth. So this was a enjoyable push to maintain at it, and discover extra potential with the podcast. I’ve lined up my first sponsors for the yr, too!
Continue to make studying a spotlight
I’m writing the nice ebook recap proper now (it is going to be reside tomorrow!), however it’s wanting like I learn round 24 books this yr. It was underneath my aim of three per 30 days, as a result of I spent some ebook time finding out for IHP. My aim remains to be at the very least three books per 30 days for 2023. Reading is one thing I genuinely take pleasure in, so it’s good motivation to put aside time for studying every day, even when it’s simply for quarter-hour till I crash out.
Get back into singing…or one thing
Our symphony had a season this yr, they invited everybody back to the choir, and we needed to re-audition for our spots. I realized Beethoven’s ninth, in German, went in and bought my spot back, and then realized a number of days later that I wouldn’t be capable of take part for private causes. I’m hoping I’ll be capable of return subsequent yr, as a result of I actually miss it, however on the identical time, it’s been so lengthy that I can’t assist however marvel if it is a signal to do one thing else. I’m simply wanting for one thing to fill my musical/artistic cup, like singing, piano, or dancing, so right here’s hoping there’s a few of that in 2023.
Continue to work to be a extra affected person, joyful, and loving mother and spouse, aka my most vital aim
I would like the individuals in my life to know the way a lot I genuinely love them unconditionally, and whereas I do know this in my coronary heart, it’s vital to indicate them. I remind myself to be extra current, affected person, and benefit from the individuals round me as a lot as I can. I take pleasure in our infants a lot, and being their mother is my favourite factor in the entire world. It’s my function for them to really feel that as a lot as potential <3
