Goals for 2018

I love new years...new school years and new calendar years!  I love new planners with special markers...anything that I can color code and make me at least look like I have my shit together!  Here we are in a new year and I'm ready to make this a year of the badass Fancy Nancy!  I mean not only is this 2018 but it is also my last year in a certain age group....so why not make it fabulous!

Looking back on last year's goals it was very simple...Relax...have a healthy pregnancy...invest in healthy relationships.  I would say best 2 out of 3.  Baby boy was born and was super healthy...I have been able to really invest in some healthy relationships around me and I am really feeling the love...however relaxing is still a struggle.  I mean 3 kids is a friggin CIRCUS!!!

I split my goals into 3 different categories...running/fitness, nutrition/weight loss, and life.  Here you have it!!


  • Run 1000 miles.  I know this will be a challenge this year since I am currently fighting the running kiss of death known as plantar faciitis, but I also know that I can do this!
  • Run Newport 10 Miler.  I love this race and I was sad to not be able to run it last year ( I was a little busy healing after my c-section).  I'm excited to have a race to train for!
  • Heal my foot and gain strength...both mental and physical.  This mama needs to get her grit back!
  • Lift weights 3x a week...I know that injury free running is in weight training and make my structure strong!
Nutrition/Weight loss:
  • Lose 50lbs...I know that is a big number but believe me I need it!!!  
  • Eat clean, whole foods...foods that make my body not only smaller but HEALTHY
  • Get our children to make good food choices...I know it comes from the top and if I can be a good example, they will follow.
  • Collect memories not things...Last year it was all about decluttering.  Yes we still need to do that (my goal for January is to fill 1 trash bag a day) but I am looking forward to having fun experiences with our family
  • Lower the pressure...enjoy the roller coaster!  This is our last baby and he is already 7 months old!!!  I just need to remind myself to breathe....and enjoy!

  • Be intentional about spending time with the people I love...Time speeds by and I need to be more intentional about taking time to spend with those around me...plan dates for my husband and I to have fun together...have girls nights..etc
Cheers to a new year!!!  What are some of your goals in 2018???


  1. Best of luck to you on your goals! I'm definitely a fan of the "collect memories, not things" philosophy as well! <3 Also attempting to declutter my life, but it's been a slow-going process!

  2. Being intentional is definitely one of mine as well! Sorry to hear about your injury but hoping it heals soon. Having something to train for is super motivating and I have a few goal races set up as well. Also, good luck with weight training. I added it last year and it did wonders for my running AND weight loss!

  3. You've got some great goals Nancy! Hopefully the PF will stay under control. I'm still trying to figure out if I can fit in the Newport 10 miler - it would be fun to see you!
