Starting Clean in Seventeen

Happy New Year! I'm overjoyed to be getting a fresh start and have several exciting goals, ideas, and plans to share with you all today! So, in this post I will be talking about how to help you actually reach your goals this year and what my2017 goals are.

Here are a few ways to give you a better chance to reach your goals. First of all you need to figure out what you want to accomplish this year and you need to make a general list. Now, we need these goals to be obtainable. So, you should write down specific things for you to accomplish. For example one of my goals is to read more this year, so instead of just writing down "read more" I need to make it something I can obtain, a number. For me when I have a goal with a finish line it is easier for me to reach it. So, I'm going to write down "read 12 books".

Now after you have written down all of your goals for 2017, you need to make yourself accountable to these goals. A great way to do this is by sharing your goals with a friend so that they can check in with you to make sure that you are completing your goals. I also think that when I tell someone I'm going to do something, I'm more likely to do it because if I don't I will feel guilty.

Here are my obtainable 2017 goals:
Pray everyday
Daily devotion
Read 12 books
Take a yoga class
Complete the Whole30 diet

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!
