This year I am making a list and thinking hard about what I want to achieve in the next year.
This past year I had really only done two things new, I started this blog and I started going to the gym.
To be honest I didn't think either of which would last the year out.
The blog waxed and waned. I wanted to try and post something everyday and I didn't manage that, but I kept it up all year, even when it felt that there was nobody reading it except for me.
The gym, well that was managed better. I decided to go straight after work, I brought my gym clothes into work with me, and before even going home for my dinner I would go to the gym. I did between 2-4 times per week all year. I managed to lose over 30 inches off my body and lost over 3 1/2 stone in weight. I lost 4 dress sizes in clothes and my fitness levels just shot up.
This year I am doing double the resolutions!!
1. Get to work on time, everyday! Now that shouldn't be that difficult, I live a 20minute walk from my work, but because I wait for R to run me to work in the car, and he doesn't start work til later, I am ALWAYS late for work. This coming year, if he isn't up I am just walking to work. I will be on time. (Plus the extra 20 minute walk will be good for me!)
2. Save money for Christmas. This year, as every other year I was stressed to he hilt because of how to afford buyng pressies, food, drink etc to celebrate Christmas. This coming year I will save a smallish amount every month so that come Christmas I have a decent amount of money to buy gifts etc.
3. Do something every week with R that involves fitness. Whether that is go for a long walk, go swimming, climb a mountain, whatever. Every week we are going to do something that will help make us fitter and healthier.
4. I am going to concentrate more on my eating this year. Last year was good for my fitness, this year I am going to take it a step further. I have a number of goals this year I want to achieve fitness-wise. I am taking part in a 5 mile assault course thru mud for Marie Curie. I am taking part in a relay for the Belfast Marathon. I want to lose another 3 stone by the end of the year. I am going to take part in a couch to 5k program starting on January 6th.
Phew, just reading that scares me a little. But putting it down here, for you all to read means that I will have to try harder to keep on track and do it.
What do you have planned for the new year? Any resolutions you want to share?
