Happy New Year and cheers to you all! Hope you all had amazing Holidays and that you are ready for rocking and rolling your healthy lifestyle again.

I know it has been a while since I did Monday Motivation post. I’m so sorry guys. December was one crazy month for me. I’ve been busy with publishing and promoting my Healthy Christmas Cookies cookbook. Just before Holidays, I did this amazing sweet Honey Cinnamon Cookies recipe, and afterward, I slowly begin to shut down for Holidays. I seriously needed some time off, to be with my family.

While offline I made a recap of my last blogging year. I’ve rounded some highlights and most popular posts in 2017. I must say it’s been one INCREDIBLE year for me. I’m sooo grateful to be able to do what I really love and to finally start to see the results of my hard work. It’s amazing how seeing the actual results are motivating.

Well, you’ve probably indulged in food and drinks too much for the last few weeks, skipped all or almost all of your exercises. Don’t beat yourself up. I did it too. I’m stuffed like Thanksgiving turkey, can hardly breathe, and just a thought of moving my ass anywhere besides couch is hurting me. Yup, I’m a couch potato. BUT, that’s all perfectly fine. That’s a Holidays are for – to give some rest and to enjoy. Now that Holidays are over, well it’s time to get back on track… and I’m taking you all with me. Goodbye sweet Almond Sugar Cookies and helooou Orange Persimmon Detox Smoothie.

I think there’s no better way to start a brand new week and brand new year rather than with some New Year’s resolutions. The beginning of a new year is always the perfect time to set goals for self-improvement. It’s amazing coincidence that today it’s the first day of a brand new year, AND it’s a Monday – best day to start new things . It’s like New Year just wants us to achieve amazing stuff this year.

This year it’s set for success. Can you feel it? I DO!

If you haven’t written your resolutions down on the paper jet, that’s perfectly fine. You still have time. Here are my goals for 2018. This year I will:

Spend more quality time with family.
Live in the moment.
Start each day with gratitude.
Focus on positive things. Choose to be happy.
Love yourself and live a healthy lifestyle.
Drink more water.
Meditate and do yoga.
Say YES more to new things.
Do more things outside your comfort zone.
Buy less stuff. Declutter your life.
Embrace simplicity.
Give more compliments.
Be kind and generous.
Travel more.
Learn a new skill.

While I was setting my goals and I realized there’s one thing that sums all my goals. How about we all just devote this year to loving our lives / ourselves more? Taking good care of you means the people in your life will get the best of you. 

Until next Monday, stay HAPPY and healthy.

  1. WOW! I usually can’t keep ONE resolution.. I applaud you! That’s a hefty list. Will you keep readers updated on your progress with the resolutions?

    • Yes, of course. Actually I don’t find it hard to follow these decisions. Well except one or two ;) You know what will be the hardest resolution to keep up with?… Keeping myself well hydrated! For me that’s a HUGE problem and quite big challenge. What’s your most challenging resolution?

  2. Really impressed by seeing your resolutions , because many of them are my resolutions too.
    Spend more quality time with family.Drink more water. Do more things outside your comfort zone,Give more compliments. Be kind and generous.Learn a new skill.
    like you said, the most challenging one will be drinking water, i was been trying to do the same past a year, but i couldn’t keep myself hydrated, but trying to make it done this year.And so far its going well, what about you?

    • Thank you so much Bruce. Glad we are on same page. ;) I’m still struggling with drinking more water daily. Ulla helps me but lately I tend to forget to bring Ulla with me. I figured that’s because I don’t have adequate water bottle. I’m on a mission to find one that is both nicely designed and usable. I’m thinking about glass bottle. I had plastic ones till now. What do you think?

  3. I too bought one water bottle, which is yellow in color( yellow is my favorite), But we should never use colored one, always should go for transparent bottle, so glass will be better, but it will weigh a little right?

    • Yeah I agree. Colored bottles are harder to keep clean. That’s why I’m aiming to get myself a glass water bottle. It’s easier to keep clean and It’s much healthier.

  4. All the best! hope we both follow our resolution strictly :)
