How to Make [+ Achieve!] Goals in the New Year {2017}

When the New Year comes around, I can’t help but feel nostalgic about everything that happened during the past 365 days. With the retrospective look, however, comes the reminder to look forward — making goals is one major way to ensure you’re getting to where you want to be.

As my wise dad says, “Aim at nothing, and you will surely hit it.”

Another fave is from an equally wise man, Albert Einstein: “Life is like riding a bicycle; to keep your balance, you must keep moving.”

So, whether you’re all, “2016 was the best. year. EVER.” or you’re like, “Let’s never speak of 2016 again,” …

A Scenic Hike to the Top of Lizard Rock {Thousand Oaks}

Over Memorial Day weekend, my mom and I hiked up to Lizard Rock for a scenic outdoor workout. We entered from Hill Canyon in Santa Rosa Valley (which we’ve posted on a few times now!), and you can also enter it from Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks.

From Hill Canyon, you can head up the switch backs to the left of the entry gate. Luckily, it was a cool day — and of course, the earlier you head out, the better.

Here’s a couple reasons why we love Lizard Rock/Hill Canyon & Wildwood Park:
