2014 Goals Final Update

Road 2014

It’s time to close the book on 2014, and update you on my 2014 goals. I hope 2014 turned out to be all you hoped it would. I’m excited about the future that lies ahead and am looking forward to making some big plans in 2015.

Lose Weight

I started 2014 off by seeing the doctor and getting blood work done. I also signed up with a grocery delivery service so I’m not tempted to buy things that I shouldn’t.  So, how am I doing? I fell off the wagon over the summer and gained a bunch back. I am back on track as of Thanksgiving but unfortunately I feel like I’m starting all over again. I’m a little discouraged, but I’m definitely not giving up. FAIL


Part of this goal was to complete my first ever 5K, which I did! I walked the Michael Matters 5K Walk to End Brain Cancer in honor of my Dad who died from Glioblastoma. SUCCESS

I also completed the Dirty Girl 5K Obstacle Mud Run in June. SUCCESS



New Website

In 2014 I wanted to start a new website. I had been writing two blogs for nearly five years, but I’ve always just written for myself. Happily, I assumed responsibility of We Heart Mom!  SUCCESS

I didn’t make as much progress blogging as I would have liked to. Things were going pretty well in the first half of 2014, but unfortunately life became more difficult throughout the course of the year. My current job just consumes way too much time and energy, and I’ve been unable to allocate the time needed to expand this blog. I’m doing my best, and still hope to grow this blog in the future. As always, thanks to everyone who reads and follows this site! I greatly appreciate the support, and you all motivate me to keep going! :)


We had a fantastic year of travel! I’m extremely grateful for all our travels and the great times spent with family and friends! SUCCESS

  • Winter family trip somewhere warm for Spring Break — we went to Hawaii for a week in March!
  • Mommy-only trip to recharge and be the best mommy I can be — in May I went to California for 5 days all by myself!
  • My brother and SIL came to visit us this summer, always fun when they come to visit!
  • Our first aupair finished her time with us and her Mom came to stay for a visit, it was very hard to say goodbye.
  • Summer family trip – we went to California in September for a week!
  • I wanted to go to a blogging conference but I ran out of time and money 🙁

Practice Positivity

I read somewhere that you can look for reasons to be happy or you can look for reasons to be sad – you’ll always be able to find plenty of each. This is my new mantra. I’m trying to be positive, but I have been whining A LOT about the weather this year, but I can’t help myself. Spring seems so very far away. FAIL

So there you have it, folks. Not all my goals were accomplished, but I’m glad I made them and worked toward something.  I enjoyed a fun year not only writing on the blog, but great times with family and friends throughout the year and that’s what matters most!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year’s!
