I cannot believe it’s 2017 already. Where did last year go?! Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be glad to see the back of it because it was a pretty rubbish year for the world, but it scares me how quickly time goes. This year I’m going to concentrate on achieving my goals, starting with making some resolutions.
As usual, this is also a YouTube video, linked at the bottom of the post.
- LOSE WEIGHT
I’ve had this same resolution for about 10 years now and I’ve only ever lost a noticeable amount of weight once or twice, but now I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been (I blame marriage) and I’m not happy about it. I have to eat better for my surgery on the 10th – both before and after – and me and Chris will probably be joining a gym if we can afford it once I’m healed. I actually want to lose 3-4 stone (14lbs = 1 stone, Americans). Linked to losing weight is drinking more water, too.
- GET OUTSIDE MORE
I spend a lot of time indoors because of my work, so it would be good for me and my sanity if I got out more, even if it’s just on the weekends.
- WORK HARDER
I really want to turn blogging and youtube into my career, so I’m determined to work as hard as I can in order to make that happen. I need to procrastinate less, because I am awful at leaving things to the last minute.
- MAINTAIN A SLEEP SCHEDULE
My sleeping pattern is awful, because I’m usually up until the early hours and then I sleep in until nearly lunchtime, which means I have less time to film before Chris gets in. I also need more time for uni work so an earlier start would be beneficial there.
I didn’t want to set myself too many major goals because then I’m less likely to succeed. I have specific youtube and blogging goals as well, which I think I’ll talk about in a separate post, but for now these are my 2017 goals. Make sure to watch the video below, because I put lots of effort into it and I really like it!
