I’m not usually one for making New Years Resolutions, in fact I don’t think I ever have before but this year I feel like I want to set myself some goals to motivate myself to improve/achieve things.
1. Lose Weight | Get Fit | Eat Healthier – This year I’ve noticed I’ve put on some weight due to not eating healthy foods and not exercising enough. This year I want to make an extra effort to schedule in when I can exercise and to not fall into the temptation of takeaways so easily. It won’t be easy because my boyfriend and I work long hours and never know exactly what time we will get in hence why it is hard sticking to the set meals we have planned during the week or hitting the gym but I’m really motivated to do something, even if it’s a simple walk on a couple of evenings a week and more exercise at the weekends.
2. Stop worrying, over thinking things and getting stressed – I’m definitely one of those people who worries a lot and as I suffer from anxiety and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) it really isn’t good for my health. It takes a lot for me to get stressed and it isn’t until things build up from every angle that I get really upset etc but I do tend to worry and over analyse things which isn’t good! As my job is a Business Analyst it’s something I do every day but in my personal life I’m going to try and do it less so I’m not worrying about things that may never happen. This is something that is always easier said and done and if things are out of your control and could have big consequences it’s tough but I will try!
3. Improve my photography – I recently bought a Cannon 600d which I love but realistically only use a teeny amount of the functions available. This year I definitely want to learn how to do more with it and improve the photo’s on my blog.
4. Save, save, save – After saving for a long time to buy a flat I have been on a bit of a spending spree over the past few months to make up for literally restricting myself to spending nothing for over a year. It has been really nice to buy lots of lovely things but now I feel it’s the time to start saving again so this year I’m going to make much more effort to save whilst still buying the odd treat.
