2016 New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year! It is strange to me what a different place I was in last year when I was writing this post for 2015. 2015 was incredible for me--I got engaged, moved across the country to New York City, started graduate school, moved in with my best friend & went on a ton of adventures. This year I want to focus more on myself--my health [mental & physical], my dreams, and what makes me happy. I still want to help others and support my friends & family--don't get my wrong--but I just need to give myself a little more attention than I did in the past year. Without further ado, here are my 2016 New Year's Resolutions:
  • Drink More Water: This remains a constant struggle. I always think if I buy a cute water bottle I'll drink more but it doesn't happen! This resolution is at the top of my list for this year! I need to get up to eight cups each day. 
  • Track Marcos: Over the past few years I've gained a bit of weight. It is definitely something personal and uncomfortable for me to talk about but it's very important. Last year I accomplished a lot externally and this year, I want to focus more on myself (aka my health). Joe and I both followed IIFYM for one month before Mexico. I felt amazing and saw results. Of course our diets were all over the place while traveling and never got back to this plan. My goal is to stick with IIFYM for three months and (hopefully) the whole year. I'm considering creating a separate Instagram account or something to help myself. Any thoughts? 
  • Workout 4x/week: Working out used to be a no-brainer for me but since moving to New York City, getting to the gym isn't as straightforward. I am slowly getting back into it so I think four workouts/week would be a great goal! I'm also walking around a ton here so I don't feel the need to go five or six times per week like I used to! 
  • Treat Blogging & YouTube Like a Job: This may seem silly but for the first year or so of creating content, I felt like I wasn't doing anything. I've always wanted to create a successful blog and channel but I've lacked the confidence. Once I moved to New York City, I slowly became more confident and consistent. I want to set aside more time to work on improving my blog, channel, and content. I want to learn more and create more content that people enjoy and have them coming back for more! 
  • Organize The Apartment: Living in a small apartment is definitely more challenging with two people. Joe was sort of thrown in after I was settled and started a new job immediately. As I have time over winter break, I want to thoroughly organize the apartment. I am starting a series on my channel to break down each area and make it more livable. The first video will be up tomorrow!
I am hoping these resolutions are a little more specific than last year and I will be coming back to this post to make sure I am staying on top of them. 

What are your New Year's resolutions?

Happy 2016!
