My Goals for 2017...!!!

Hey Y'all,

As is a custom for many people, it is time to set up my goals for the new year of 2017. Of course, I will set some goals for myself like everyone does this time of year. The only problem I ever have with setting these New Year Resolution goals for myself, I am never able to complete them. I either forget about them or just procrastinate with them. I guess that is a pretty normal for any person. This year my New Year Resolution is a New Year, a New Me. There are so many things I want to change this year or things I want to do. As many of you know, I now how a daughter who is about to be a year old next week.
-Be healthy-
I have been saying this one for a while now. Especially ever since I had Violet. It's time for me to try and be healthy again. When I was pregnant with Violet, I craved Mountain Dew all the time. Since then, I have tried twice to get it out of my life and have not succeeded. So this year I want to start drinking more water. I want to drink less soda. I want to eat healthier meals. I want to start working out again and loose weight in the process. I would love it if I fit into some of my old clothes again. I want to feel sexy, healthy, and happy. I feel this would help me reach those goals. 

- Be a Good Mommy -
I feel like this is the most important goal I can set for myself as a new mother to be. I know I won't be perfect and that I'll make mistakes. I just hope that I will be the best that I can be for my daughter because she deserves the best. She deserves everything and I want to give her the world. I just hope I can be there for her as much as I want to be. I'm worried I won't be a good mother. There's so much I'm worried about as a new mom to be. But I know I will learn and that is the best I can hope for. 

  - Read, Draw, and Write - 
I always make a new goal each year to read more books. But sadly I always try to commit to twenty-five books and fail. So this year, I want to aim for a much smaller goal. This year I want to read fifteen books. This year I really want to let my creative juices flow. I want to read my goal of twenty-five books that I set for myself on Goodreads. I feel like this may be easier now that I am on the road to becoming a mommy. Also, I'm gonna have some down time before the baby is due to reading, writing, and even drawing if I am inspired to. I just don't know. I have less than two weeks before she comes if she comes on time. It's honestly one huge waiting game. I want to try and write more. I want to blog more as well. I'm hoping the two will go hand in hand. I may be blogging about becoming a new mom and my experiences from that. I may also try to get back into drawing and such. I just need to get inspired to do so and that's hard for me. I'm hoping that becoming a new mom will inspire me to do a lot of things. I think it will be a very interesting time for me. I am excited to see where it takes me. 

- Cook More, Garden More, and Get Creative -
Once I move, I want to start a garden. I think it's important to produce a lot of the veggies you get yourself. It saves you money and provides your family with food. I also want to cook more. I love to cook and I don't do it nearly enough. I'm hoping to start planning out meals and going through my cupboards on a weekly basis to see what I need. I like this idea. I also want to do something fun in the kitchen. I want to create places to keep my spices and baking items. I want to have things organized in a way that speaks to me. It will also make things easier for me if I can find things when I need them.

- Focus on the Important Things -
For the last couple months, my life has been very stressful. I want to put the main focus on things like my job and my schooling. Both of these are very important and essential to further my dreams of life. 

As you can probably tell, some of the goals listed are similar or the same as last year.
