So, we are merely hours away from bidding goodbye to 2014 and welcoming in 2015.
The year which, if Back to the Future II is anything to go by, will bring us hoverboards and interesting sartorial choices including metallic hats and neon rings.
I mentioned yesterday that I was going to blog about resolutions. I’m not normally one for making resolutions. They don’t get kept and seem a bit of a pointless exercise. However, I think they’re a good way of thinking about what you want to achieve or make a priority in the next year. In the long run, a year is just 12 months long.
So here are the things I’d like out of 2015, the things I will try and stick to and things I want to stop doing.
1) Go to the gym more regularly.
I have a pretty sweet deal on a gym membership. Even if I don’t get there more than twice a week I will still save enough money to make it worthwhile. Which leads me to…
2) Run/walk a 5k race.
Mum came up with this idea and I really like it. I started doing the couch to 5k programme before I got ill last term and I want to keep that up anyway so it makes sense to have a goal like that to work towards.
3) Be kinder to myself.
I’m always my worst critic when I should be my own biggest fan. I am pretty awesome, to be frank. I have so many good qualities and I need to focus on these rather than beat myself up all the time.
4) Make my health a priority.
Comes with the gym really but this is important. Weight needs to stop being the thing I worry about. What’s more important is my overall health. Taking care of my diet and fitness will in turn probably lead to weight loss but that’s not my immediate goal. I’ve noticed over the festive period that as I’ve been eating crap I wouldn’t normally eat, drinking more etc my skin has gone mental. My back is covered in spots and I’ve got rashes in a few places. I want to enjoy food and feel like I can eat chocolate and chips and all that delicious stuff; I’m just going to keep that for the weekend.
5) Keep up my skin care regime and look after my body on the outside as well.
This is pretty self explanatory. When I take care of my skin (and that’s all over) it looks good and therefore I feel good. And being as I turn a quarter of a century old this year (OH GOD) the more I look after it now the more older me will be thankful.
So. There they are! What kind of resolutions are you making this year?
