2020 Bucket List & Word of the Year

It’s almost 2020! Happy (almost) New Year! You know what time it is? It’s time to set our intentions and goals for another 365 day journey. I do several different things to plan for a new year. I make a bucket list for the year, a choose a word of the year, I use a planner to plan all the things and I create a vision board because I need all the help I can get and I believe in the power of manifestation. (run-on sentence probably, don’t care. 😆)

So here’s my 2020 bucket list. You can see my 2019 bucket list here.


I find that making a bucket list really allows me to stay on track throughout the year. I checked off a lot of my goals last year using the bucket list method. It’s easy for me to see what I need to get done when it’s listed in my planner.

My word for the year is one that I hear often. I am going to choose to focus on how blessed I am in the midst of life and it’s ups and downs. I am going to go into the new year claiming that all things in my life are already blessed. In 2019 I became so distracted and disappointed that I forgot to relish in all the good that was happening.

Not this year, Satan. I am blessed in the city. I am blessed at the gym. I am blessed when I come and when I go, ya feel me?!

Word of the year

2019 taught me a lot. In 2020 I’ll use those lessons to push myself forward in a positive and productive way. I want to utilize this space more. Blogging was fun for me years ago and I am starting to feel inspired to create again. Be on the lookout for more from me.

Here’s what you can expect to see on this site and on my social media in 2020:

VIDEOS (Follow me on Instagram and Subscribe to my YouTube channel)

RECIPES (Originals and my favorites from cookbooks and the web)

WORKOUTS (Simple and easy workouts that anyone can do)


What would you like to see from me this year? How can I help you or be a source of inspiration?

Happy 2020! We got this!

2019 Word of the Year & Bucket List

When the New Year began I immediately knew what I wanted my word of the year to be. I prefer a theme to the new year over making resolutions. Creating a bucket list for the new year is also something I started doing instead of making a vision board. 

Giving myself a theme or word for the year helps keep me focused and motivated throughout the year. The bucket list serves as a to-do list of adventures and goals. I highly recommend making a bucket list for the new year. You’ll be able to see in plain sight exactly what it is you want to accomplish.

When you can easily see your goals you are more likely to achieve them.

2019 word of the year

This year I plan to stretch myself even more than I did last year. Last year I did all the things that I was too afraid to try. I lived fearlessly. This year I’m going to build on that by stretching myself in my career and my personal life. 

To ensure that I am living up to my theme for this year I have created a bucket list to help me. This year I would love to stretch myself by doing the following things:


Do you have a word of the year for 2019? Have you created a bucket list? Share you must-dos of the year with me. I’d love to hear how you plan to stretch yourself this year!
