Happy New Year!

I’m so excited to start 2014. Even though I’m no longer a big believer in resolutions and “starting over,” I love the fresh start, rejuvenating, Day-1 feeling you get on January 1. I find it motivating but not in the same way I used to.

No more crazy diets, or cleanses, or fasting, or extreme goals that are a big set-up to fail.

Nope, no more. Now I just use the new year as a fun refresher. Giving me a chance to refocus, re-evaluate and well, recap, as I’m about to do.

Here is a photo journey through 2013. Each photo links to its corresponding post in case you’re curious.

WOW, what a year!

If you are curious what my 2014 goals are, click here. I’m in planning mode on many of them right now. It’s a lot of work “making things happen!”

As for fun daily goals, I’m attempting a run streak for as long as I can this year. I had a lot of fun doing one last spring and I love the small nudge to get out there even if only for a mile. It reminds me to #wycwyc daily. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I missed your original “Exposed” post until your year-in-pictures recap here. In my opinion, you were wrong when you said, “I’m not sure I can pull off fierce either…” I think you pulled it off extremely well. That’s a great pic on every single level. Hope your 2014 is every bit as good as 2013 was.

    You are amazing! Your yoga and cross fit pics…wow. Just wow. Also, The Husband and his middle finger crack me up. It’s like Where’s Waldo! Your boys are precious. Thanks for all the motivation you give. It helps me more than I can ever say.

    Happy New Year!
