20 Realistic New Years Resolutions

Every year, I make a New Year’s Resolution, and every year, it gets tucked under the giant “mom” pile of things that need to get done, and somehow is never found again. Not this year! This year is going to be different. This year, I am going to post my resolutions up on a wall so I see it every day and make sure I accomplish more, do more, and make my blog HUGE!

I hope this New year is a successful year for all my fellow bloggers. #BlogOnLovelies!

  1. Write at least 1 blog post a week
  2. Add a recipe section on my Blog
  3. Add baby food recipes (since William starts solid foods this month)
  4. Get back down to pre-pregnancy weight (very doable if I focus)
  5. Figure out Pinterest (I don’t know why it seems gibberish to me)
  6. Become active on Pinterest, and Twitter
  7. Follow through with my daily planner
  8. Reach 5K followers on Instagram (currently at 2.3K)
  9. Start a YouTube Channel about motherhood and all the crazy stories that come with it (I’m really camera shy, so it will be challenging to me stepping out of my comfort zone)
  10. Go on more Date Nights (Once a week)
  11. Visit family members more
  12. Plan more playdates for the kids
  13. Make more homemade dinners
  14. Do a body cleanse 4 times this year
  15. Use at home gym weekly (mainly stair master)
  16. Finish 1 round of Insanity Workout program
  17. Take a photography class/lesson for blogging
  18. Explore 10 museums with the kids
  19. Create a sturdy mommy group that creates a positive environment for the kids
  20. Plan at least 10 weekends of a “staycatation”

I know there is a lot more I can do, and a lot more I can write down, but in reality, if I personally keep my plate portioned, I’ll get more done. If my plate is overfilled with too many ideas and too many activities, I will burn myself out, and not be able to give my 100% to my family.

I hope you can make a New Years resolution that is realistic, and will be able to follow through.

Happy New Year!!

  1. Wow! I’m exhausted reading your list but it is totally doable! You are a busy and productive mama!! Very inspiring. Please keep us updated through the year on how you are faring.

  2. I love your list because it’s real. You have plenty to work with and can work on the list at your leisure throughout the year. Good luck to you. Happy New Year.

  3. I really like these ideas! I have also made a new year’s resolution to figure out pinterest (my blog’s pinterest page is so sad right now). I’m also focusing more on twitter (I like it better than IG I find for my content) and trying to get more consistent with a blogging schedule. Making a commitment to plan weekend family outings is smart too. We’re terrible at actually getting out of our own little neighbourhood!

  4. You got this mama! I feel that as long as you make realistic goals, they give you more drive to accomplish them!

  5. These are really awesome goals and I love that you made them actionable and doable! Happy New Year and wishing you the very best in achieving all of your goals!

  6. Great goals but now I feel a bit like an underachiever for only making three! Good luck on accomplishing yours!

  7. I love this list! I especially love the idea of visiting 10 museums this year. We have a membership to a local museum that includes free admission to science museums all over the country, so I may be stealing that resolution. 😉

    Kudos for resolving to get on camera! I finally bit the bullet and started a YouTube channel of my own last year. It’s been a fun project and I’ve been amazed at how quickly the stage fright disappears. I’d love to follow your channel when you get it up and running!

  8. These are great resolutions. Some of these sound like they would make a great bucket list. It reminds me of things like our summer bucket list – visit 10 playgrounds! I hope you have luck with your resolutions – Happy New Year!

  9. I love this list! I’m going to try for at least one blog post per week too! And great job on your Instagram I’m nowhere close to that! Also if you need help with Pinterest I’m focusing on it all month with my blog!

  10. Something simple and clear is way more likely to be achieved. And if you do have something bigger to achieve, breaking it down into weekly and monthly goals works better, too!

  11. I like this list because there are several items on it I can actually commit to doing. Write a blog post per week? Yep. Homemade dinners. Figure out Pinterest. Yep and yep. Insanity workout? No. Way. Which is also why pre-baby weight is a NOPE, too! LMBO! Great post. Thanks so much!

  12. I love your list! And I agree – writing them down and displaying them where you will see it everyday makes a huge difference in whether or not you will achieve them.
