New Years Ramblings and Resolutions


So it's the start of the New Year and the time where people make their New Years Resolutions. I don't usually make resolutions and when I do, I never stick to them. I think for me, resolutions have to be achievable. I couldn't say I'll cut out carbs or go to the gym everyday, because I know I wouldn't do it. I'd just be setting myself up to fail. However, more realistic goals would give me more motivation because I know I could achieve them.

This is why for 2016 I have decided to set resolutions, not to change myself exactly, but more so to make improvements, I suppose. They all link together, which make them easier for me too - I don't want to challenge myself too much, it's all about the baby steps.

1. Don't waste as much food. I spend too much money on food that I end up throwing away, and the food I end up eating is usually unhealthy so, in turn, this will help me to eat more healthily too - win win!

2. Use my gym membership. As I said earlier, saying that I'll go to the gym everyday is unrealistic for me, but to make sure that I go two, or maybe three, times a week (fingers crossed!) will make use of the money I spent on the gym membership and make me physically fitter also.

3. Learn to budget and stick to it. All my resolutions are somehow linked to money, and as a student this can be expected but this is something I am really keen on doing. Last year I was very unorganised and this caught up with me, so budgeting is a very sensible move for me!

So they're my resolutions, I guess I've subconsciously done the classic, 'eat better', 'go to the gym', and 'save money' spiel, but worded in a more practical way. Now let's hope I stick to them..

What are your resolutions this year?

I hope you liked this chatty style post, I'm planning on uploading a makeup post soon and will try to stay motivated with regular posting, which will be hard as January is a very busy month at uni..but I shouldn't be making excuses already!

Talk soon,
Imogen. xo
