We’re two days in to 2018, and i’ve stuck to my New Years Resolutions.. So far!
I made 10 New Years resolutions this year – and a few of them are really simple and SHOULD be easy to keep (hopefully) So lets see how it goes!
- Take my make-up off properly and use proper skin care.
– I’m so so lazy when it comes to taking my make-up off. I take ages putting it on, but taking it off, it’s a make-up wipe if i’m lucky and can be bothered. Due to this my eyelashes fall out a lot and i always get break outs and then moan. This year i’m actually going to look after my skin.
- Watch my diet.
My weight went up and down massively in 2017. This year i’m going to make sure that i eat properly and don’t over or under eat.
- Save Money.
This year i’m going to save an amount of money a month and not go into it or take from it, i’ve downloaded a few apps and things to help me save too. I waste money a lot on things I don’t need, like make-up brushes just because I can’t be bothered to clean them. I’ve swapped my £36 foundation to £10 foundation too.. this is a massive thing for me as it has to look perfect in my opinion, else i won’t leave the house!
- Stop worrying what other people think.
I have the tendency to care about what other people think too much. Especially when they’re close to people I love or care about. After over a year, i’ve decided if you don’t like me, cool, i’ll pretend you don’t exist.
- Be happy.
I’m not going to stress about minimal things, or things that i can’t change. I’m just going to focus on myself and the things and people that i care about and put myself first. If you don’t put me first, i won’t put you first. It’s as simple as that. It’s time to be a little selfish.
I’m going to read at least 12 books this year, one a month. It sounds like a small amount but i work really odd hours, so this is harder than it seems. I take books when i go on holiday and i love getting lost in a book, rather than watching TV.
Instead of eating out all the time, i’m going to cook and mix up recipes more. I love cooking, but again, it’s time and space and a lot of effort when i could climb into bed and nap instead.
2017 took us to Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Twice, Wales and more. This year I hope to do more and more little road trips around the UK and see whats here instead of always jumping on a plane.
- Get Healthy.
Walks, Runs, Squats, Whatever my app says, i’m doing. I don’t have the confidence to go to the gym, so home bits to start with is where its at!
I’m two days in, so at least this is a start.. Right?!
- Drink more Water & Sleep better.
It’s so east to grab a can of Red Bull or grab a bottle of coke, but grabbing a bottle of water is definitely better for my body and my skin.
I’m going to try and sleep more and get into more of a routine too (which is difficult when you work until 3am..) but we can try, right!?
If I can stick to 6/10 of these i’ll be happy, so fingers crossed… Right?!
