New Year’s Resolutions

I know it’s already the 4th of January but it has taken me a little while to think up some resolutions this year.

Last year’s resolutions were to successfully go to the gym, lose weight, tone up and eat healthily, as well as pass uni and graduate.

I completed all of these which was a massive shock to me as I am massively partial to food and not the gym, however once I got into it I couldn’t quite stop! The endorphins obviously got to me and I loved the feeling.

To top off my year the perfect thing would have been to get a job, but unfortunately that didn’t happen (in my field anyway!).

I did get a Christmas job at Boots and I have been kept on permanently so I am very grateful for that and knowing that I will still have some money coming in and just have to keep my fingers crossed that something more relevant will come up soon.

With regards to this year I have a few aims I would like to share with you and certain tasks I would like to complete.

Firstly of course, I would like to successfully complete the 100 day spending ban that me and M have both begun on the 1st of January. You can read an update on that on Sunday to see how were getting on in our first week!

Secondly I would like to continue my healthy eating and exercising and hopefully manage to get some more regular hours in work making going to classes a little easier. I was going 4/5 times a week and I have been lucky the past 2 months if I went twice! 

This was largely due to late shopping hours but now those are over I’m hoping I won’t have any more excuses…

Thirdly I would like to complete more of my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge which you can access using the page tabs on the right of the web page. 

This includes reading more and completing project 365 which I have begun on my tumblr (let me know if you’d like to follow me or if you’re completing the same thing!)

Lastly my biggest resolution for this year is to have fun!

Even though I’ve had some great nights out with some friends and went to America for 7 weeks, those nights were few and the purpose of my America trip was a university module which took up most of my time over there.

I have completed uni now and should have more free time, all I need is to pay off a few bills and debts from a year without work and then start saving up for the future.

I would love to do more cinema trips, more meals, more day trips (not necessarily shopping!) and an actual holiday would be luscious!

I have lots to look forward to in 2013 including 2 of my friends weddings and a few concerts planned as well as I would love to go to a festival and travel more.

Basically what I’m trying to say is…..
