New Year's Resolutions

Hi all!  I'm linking up with Brandi at A Peach for the Teach to make my New Year's Resolutions.

I have never been one to either make New Year's resolutions or strongly attempt to stick with any I have made.  However, this year, with the help of my friend Brandi, I will do my best to try to stick with them.
A Peach for the Teach: Behavior Supports & Multi-Age

First, it is my goal to become a much healthier person in 2014.  I will be turning 60 near the end of January, and I've been thinking I need to up my exercise and get back to eating mostly healthy foods.
We live near a wonderful exercise/swim club, and when you and your spouse are both 60 or older, you can join at a very discounted price. We plan to join as soon as my birthday arrives.  Also, I've been looking into the Paleo diet.  I have basically eaten this way in the past, and I always feel so much better when I do.  Has anyone else done this diet?  I found a website that really appears to make it easier. Anyway, I know if I'm feeling good from exercising and eating healthy, I will have the energy to spend more time with friends, which is uplifting and mentally healthy.  A win-win situation!

Feeling healthy will hopefully help me to get motivated again and back on track with setting a work schedule.  I have been in a slump, and I find myself spending the majority of my time on social media and the forums (work-related, but still too much!).  I now need to focus on creating high-quality teaching resources.

Although I am no longer in the classroom, I still keep in contact with my former co-workers. Also, I love my TpT job and all of the new teacher friends I have met!  This has allowed me to still feel connected with the classroom and, as I said before, I plan to continue creating high-quality resources that will help children in classrooms everywhere.

As for my blog, I plan to only blog when I have time to develop great content.  My major focus will be on creating those high-quality resources I have been talking about! ;)

Finally, I think balance is the key to a happy life!  It is my goal to make a rough schedule (to keep me focused) for my work and personal life, allowing more time to discover new things and places with friends.
