As you all know, a new year is a time for us to review our goals and plans.  And for us, 2023 is going to be a full year.  I thought I’d share with you what we have coming up.  

  • 3 Cruises are Scheduled, one in January, July and December
  • Grandbaby #3 coming in March
  • Grandbaby #4 coming in April
  • Gaining a daughter-in-law, wedding in July
  • Currently planning to judge 8 barbeque contests
  • Sharing our story with our franchise we own coming to YouTube and this website in February and March
  • Eat clean with limited processed foods and sugar
  • Move my body 5 times a week
  • Meal plan weekly
  • Cut back my days at our business to 3 days a week
  • Care for my mom 3 days a week
  • YouTube videos and blog posts a minimum of 1/week

Suffice it to say, it is a busy schedule.  I’m a pencil and paper girl and Mike likes his schedule and planning online.  Regardless of how you do your planning, it is best to have it written somewhere where it can be reviewed and revised.  

I am using 2 planners.  They are very different.  The first is the Homemaker’s Friend by Sue Hooley and it is a daily planner.  This is my 5th year to use her planner and I love it.  You can find it in our Amazon store here.  I’ve also linked the Zebra pens I use there as well.

Commit 30 daily planner

The second planner I’m using is Commit 30.  It is a daily/hourly planner that focuses on reaching your goals through 30 day increments.  This can be found on the Commit 30 website.

This is my first year to use the Commit 30 planner, so I’ll let you know how it goes in the future.

My biggest goal this year is to remain healthy through clean eating and moving my body.  I sometimes feel as if I’m slowing down and I want to stay in Phase 2 for many years to come.  I want to live life to the fullest and enjoy each and every day God gives me. 

As a reminder, Phase 2 in our life is when we are becoming empty nesters and around retirement time.  Phase 3 in our life is when our health declines.

Please feel free to share your plans and goals for 2023 in the comments below.  Also, if you haven’t yet, consider subscribing to our YouTube channel.  We are trying to continue growing with it.  Thank you.

Make it a great Living Phase 2 day friends,
