2013 New Year's Resolutions

For the past couple of years I've been creating New Year Resolutions and for the most part I've been accomplishing them. A big reason for that is because I've published them online for the world to see. I also have a print version of my lists in my planner and bedroom wall. Since there is always room for improvement these are my resolutions for 2013.

1. Be healthy. Consistently workout at least 3 times a week (even during midterm and finals!). Eat healthy homemade meals.

2. Improve my grades. 

3. Apply for more scholarships (college is really expensive!)

4. Learn how to balance my schedule more.

5. Summer 2013!

6. Be a better catechist. Seek out more resources.

7. Travel to at least two new cities/towns.

8. Learn how to create and stick to budget, shop quality over quantity and save more money.

9. Learn how to manage my stress.

10. Be a better person, daughter, sister, friend.

11. Be more spiritual, read the Bible and go to mass more often.

12. Cross out more things from my bucket list. Accomplish my career goals.

13. Be fearless!

What are your New Year's Resolutions?

Music Monday: We Are Love [Deluxe Editition]

I have fallen in love with this album. With 17 amazing songs to chose from. I strongly suggest you splurge on the deluxe edition. I ordered mine from Barnes and Noble's website. it is simply amazing. Honestly, I had some doubts on their new music. Their previous album set very high standards yet they did not disappoint. Their songs come in FOUR languages! Italian, Spanish, English and a song in German. Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio are multi-talented. 

Their voices are so sweet yet powerful. Even when I don't fully understand some of their Italian songs, the tone and melody take you to another world. You feel the powerful emotions of the lyrics. Seriously, some of these songs take my breathe away.

Chobani On the Go: Work Cubicle [location challenge]

Where do you eat your Chobani?

Meet Sarah

I am executive who works 40+ hours a week and don't always have time for a well-balance meals. But I always have time to take quick break during work to eat the Blueberry Chobani Greek yogurt with granola. Not only is it my favorite but the blueberries give me real push when I'm just about ready to quit.

Chobani On the Go: Gym [location challenge]

Where do you eat your Chobani?

Meet Cara

I am a fairly new Chobani user. I've been trying to get into a routine of working out and being healthy. I started exercising three days a week right after work. Unfortunately, I couldn't concentrate on my workout because I was starving. So I decided to have Chobani Greek yogurt everyday after work and then again after my workout. It has helped tremendously and it's healthy too?!
