Today's post is dedicated to writing down my goals for 2013. We are a mere 4 days worth in, but I am confident this new year will be chock-full of accomplishment and merriment.
As many of you know, I have fallen head over heels in love with lululemon athletica and fitness in 2012. Many are of the mind that beauty and fitness go hand in hand.. I must say that I agree, that it is a combination more powerful and influential than I had expected. Hence, I would like to take this moment to thank you for your open mindedness and support as I share my progress as well for continuing to support the beauty channel throughout 2012! I never had the motivation to do what I have recently set in motion during my teens or even my very early twenties, but as I face my mid-twenties, fitness tops my priority list because I am changing my entire lifestyle (not just in terms of exercise, but how I see food/nutrition/health and ultimately even my beauty routine). I do not eat fast food, I cut my sodium intake, I drink only water.. so much has changed for the better.
So here are my 2013 Resolutions!
1. Maintain and improve upon this heavy lifting, clean eating lifestyle that was inspired by lululemon.
2. Post beauty reviews here on TheRAEviewer regularly, 4 times a week or more if possible.
3. Develop a stronger beauty network to bring my readers and viewers more variety.
4. Keep a tidy beauty closet and stay organized in all elements of my life.
5. Continue to grow out my hair and nourish the scalp for healthier locks.
6. Continue to use body lotion and hand creme daily to banish dry skin.
Now, I'd like to leave you with some food for thought. Whatever your goals (fitness, career, personal, etc.), please do take advantage of your potential. Potential means nothing if you do not utilize it wisely. Your goals will require sacrifice and compromise because breaking out of a stale routine and implementing any positive changes takes patience and much effort. It may require cutting back on social time, sleeping an hour or two less per day, etc. but if you really want it.. JUST DO IT. Stop asking questions, stop making excuses, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Work as hard as you possibly can, hold yourself accountable for each setback without letting it discourage you, and strive daily to accomplish what you set out to achieve because even little successes are something to celebrate (with good cheer, not by regressing into old/bad habits)! These are the very same steps I have taken.. and if you follow me on Instagram, you will see how much it has paid off already. You may surprise yourself, and you will see how far determination and consistency can carry you. Best of luck with all your resolutions this 2013! xoxo
MOTIVATION GETS YOU STARTED. HABIT KEEPS YOU GOING.
