Barre Favs: New Year Resolutions 2016

As we say goodbye to 2016 and the New Year rolls in, many of us begin to think of new resolutions, intentions and goals to achieve in 2017. Think about the best version of yourself, mastermind a plan to get there and then … rock it out. Maybe your goal is to work on your fitness, drink more water or perhaps lift that seat just a little bit (butt buster, anyone?). If your goals include a happier, healthier version of yourself, then you know that the barre is a great place to start. If you're still seeking out a resolution or intention to set for 2017, we have turned to your barretenders for a little inspiration. Take a look at what we are going to conquer in the New Year!

"I'm not really into making a resolution but every year in January both my husband and I make a yearly "bucket list" and we write down 12 things that we want to do or accomplish in the year! This year I have things like, learn to make macarons, take a photography course, learn how to knit (anyone want to teach me?!), try at least five of Edmonton's top 10 restaurants, travel to Ireland and other fun and exciting things!" - Jill

"To spend more time outdoors! I don’t get enough time doing things outside during the year, we have such a beautiful river valley and landscape and I want to take more advantage of what our beautiful landscapes has to offer." - Hannah

"In 2017 I will hit the 1000lb club! HA just kidding ... but I do really want to stay committed to my fitness and continue to grow stronger and stronger!" - Katarina

"My New Years resolution is to find a bit of time each day to be present with myself, find stillness, and just breath. Even if it is just for 5 minutes." - Jessica 

"Considering I have thus far accomplished 1of the 3 goals of last years resolution (awfully poor show on my part) I am going to carry forward a couple... learning how to stop in a pair of skates has thus far been non-existent and disastrous. However I will persevere and keep trying! I also think being more in the moment, keeping up with the spontaneity of this year and last minute trips around the world has done wonders for me, so I'll definitely have to make that a goal for next year, and maybe include sharing these experiences with a special someone. ;-)" - Kirsten 

"To get 8 hours sleep every night." - Mary Jo

"One of my resolutions for 2017 is to sleep more. I have never really enjoyed sleeping or taking naps (I am aware that a lot of people think I am bonkers because of it!), and have always subscribed to Arnold's idea of "sleeping faster"! However, knowing the multiple health benefits associated with a good night's sleep have me putting 'sleep more, not just faster' on my resolution list! (...but let's be real...I'm not talking 8 hours a night - I'm just talking more than I currently sleep. Baby steps.)" - Michelle

"I don’t typically make New Years Resolutions but if I had to make one it would be to continue to take time each week for me and not to over schedule myself!!" - Erika

"To cut back my coffee/red bull/caffeine intake in 2017!" - Sarah 

"My New Years resolution is to meal prep more!! School gets so busy and wears me down fast if I'm not properly fueled. So my goal is to make time for prep time!" - Lauren 

"My new years resolution is to get more sleep and drink less coffee! Actually just get more sleep. Scratch the coffee part." - Emily

"I've never had a new years resolution - I'm constantly setting goals and achieving them as I go. However, the big one for 2017 is renovating our basement." - Lindsey

"This new year I plan to make more of an effort to plan ahead with snacks! I am always packing my son a lunch or snack, but I forget about myself and that is when my poor choices happen. Making sure I have fruits or veggies with me at all times will keep me from getting hungry." - Kristin

"In 2017, I want to be the best version of myself!" - Katharine
