This is Your Year!

Each new year always brings along a string of resolutions for people.  Do you set a bunch of resolutions each year?  Do you follow through with them?

My fitness resolutions started to be tackled a few months ago.  I got my new Samsung Gear Fit watch and I’m obsessed.  I use this, along with the S Health app, to track my eating and working out and I’ve already seen results.  Because it’s a smart watch I also can access things like texts and the alarms from my phone.  It’s helped make me way less phone dependent in my classroom and has cut out much of the “Who has seen Miss Maguire’s cell phone?” that used to happen.

With fitness resolutions already off to a good start, I want to focus this year on time management. I always have a lot going on, and I like it that way, but I often over extend myself, become stressed, and then my major procrastination tendencies get overwhelmed.  There’s many days where I come home, sit on Facebook for hours, and accomplish nothing.  I’ll look back and wonder where the last two hours went.  I’m going to start using my Plum Planner more often and I’m super excited about this daily to do list from Blair Turner that I’m going to add into my classroom.

I’ve always previously used my teacher planner to take notes, but it doesn’t really give me room to list everything I want to accomplish.  This is going to be PERFECT.  I’m a big fan of to-do lists and being able to cross things off gives my OCD side such a sense of satisfaction.  I’m hoping this helps me stay much more focused and help me complete everything I want to.


What are your resolutions for 2015?  What are you hoping to change for the better?


I’m hoping to add a little brightness into someone’s day and help her accomplish her resolutions.  I’m giving away a $10 TpT Gift Certificate (that can be used at ANY store, not just my own).  Enter using the Rafflecopter below.
