My Word for 2017 + Goals

This year for Christmas I was gifted Lara Casey's Powersheets. At the beginning of December I really started thinking about what I wanted for 2017. This past year wasn't just awful but I didn't make the progress I wanted to. Of course there are some areas that I was weaker in than others (paying off debt and reading more). I actually lost about 15 pounds but I'm still far from where I want to be (I'll get into more about that later).

I made my way through the Powersheets prep and after really thinking about it I picked the word


I'm going to start celebrating every bit of progress I make towards my bigger goals. I'm in a season of life where my days consist of working and caring for Jack. There is little time to pursue big dreams or have alone time. That is okay. 

There are some basic areas in life that I need to focus on to build a better foundation to a better life for Jack and I. Here are some areas I want to work on.

  • Move more
  • Drink more water
  • Eat breakfast
  • Bring lunch to work
  • Cut out middle of the night snacking (I had stopped and 
  • Spend less
  • Pay off as much debt as possible
  • Start a savings account
  • Check my bank balance daily
  • Use mint to track expenses
  • Attend church more often
  • Read scripture
  • Pray more often
  • Listen to more faith based podcasts
  • Read a book a month
  • Take one hot bubble bath a week
  • Do three girls night out this year
  • Cultivate the relationships within my personal circle-close family, a few coworkers, a few friends, and some online friendships
  • Continue with my Powersheets


  1. Great goals for the new year. I love your categories and the break down for each. Sounds like you're on track to make some great progress this year. And CONGRATS on the weight loss. That's a lot of hard work right there!!

  2. Goals broken down by category is the way to go! It really works well for me that way!
    And your word is one of a kind, for sure! I can't wait to see you put it to use.
