For the last couple of years, I have chosen a "word of the year" to focus on along with setting my goals. This year, my word chose me. I had been struggling to settle on a word and while flipping through my planner, adding important dates, there it was at the beginning of April's calendar... "Flourish." Flourish means to "grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment." It was perfect! I feel like my life is at a good place right now, but I want to make it even better by Owning It in 2018.

 For the last couple of years, I have chosen a "word of the year" to focus on along with setting my goals. Here are some tips on incorporating it into your daily life!

One way I am going to live out my word of the year is to pursue becoming a certified Les Mills Body Flow instructor and start teaching classes at my local YMCA. I will be 40 this month and feel like I am in the best shape of my life because I have been focused on exercising several times a week and making healthy food choices. Even though I work out 3-4 times a week, taking classes like Yoga, PiYo, Barre, and Body Flow, I want to do more. I want to inspire other women my age to try new classes and set a healthy example for my teenage son.

Now that my life will be getting a little busier, I need easy, healthy meals and snacks to fuel my body while on the go. I have been a fan of Kellogg Special K® for years, and it is already part of my breakfast and snack routine. I am excited to be adding Special K® Quiches to my lunch box. Yes, I know these crustless quiches are technically for breakfast, but I do not normally eat savory flavors first thing in the morning. They come in delicious Portabella and Sausage flavors and are perfect to take to work with me for a healthy lunch, giving me the protein needed to get through my day. Working out, along with making healthier food choices will help me to achieve my goals.

Some of my favorites are:
Special K® Red Berries Cereal 
Special K® Protein Cereal 
Special K® Fruit and Yogurt 
Special K® Sausage Crustless Quiche
Special K® Portabella Quiche

3 Ways To Incorporate Your Word Into Your Daily Life:


Write it in your planner
If you do not have a planner, write it on a post-it note, letter board, or somewhere you can be reminded of it daily.

Set it as a background on your phone
I took a picture of the page in my planner and used it for both the Wallpaper and Background on my phone. You could also download a quote from Pinterest or make your own using a photo editing software.

Personalize an everyday item with your word
These days, between Etsy makers and cutting machines, you have the ability to customize anything from a bracelet to a coffee mug to even a pop socket for your phone!

  1. I have not done a word for the year. I've done a Bible verse of the year for the past two years and have enjoyed doing that.

  5. Such a great word!! This is good idea - to write it everywhere. I put mine (courage) on the front of my planner, but since I have to have it open all the time, it's not so useful! Thank you for sharing. I LOVE your workout efforts too! It's all I can do to get to my gym 3x a week :)

  6. These are great ideas! I love your commitment to working out too. I put my word of the year - courage - on the front of my planner, but since it's always open that doesn't help! Thanks for the reminder to get it in front of my eyes regularly...
