Every January 1st we say “New Year, New Me” and we all know damn well that this is never 100% true. Yes we may have New Years resolutions but how many of those do we keep and aren’t they the same every year; get fit, join a gym, learn a new skill, go on holiday etc. come on lets stop lying to ourselves.
This year I decided that instead of New Year resolutions I am going to set smaller goals throughout the year. Whether they be weekly or monthly goals. I find by setting smaller goals that are more realistic you will have more motivation to actually achieve these goals if the end of the road doesn’t seem too far away.
As I was away over New Year, I am starting my goal setting tonight, for Monday! This week I have only set a few goals as doing less with help you achieve more! If you set 2 goals and achieve 2 goals in a week you will have more motivation to achieve more goals the following week. Whereas if you set 5 and only do 2 or 3 you will think you have failed. Start small and move your way up.
My goals for this week are:
- Attend 2 PT sessions
- Plan out 2 blog posts
I feel as though these goals are achievable and by giving myself 7 days to do them makes it that much easier! Don’t make your goals hard for yourself, in the end you want to achieve them don’t you??
What are your goals for 2017?!!
I honestly don’t know where this year is going! It is crazy to think that next month is Christmas and my birthday. October was definitely a hectic month and all I could think about was going on holiday. Last month I didn’t have too many favourites as I haven’t tried out many new things but I did find a few old favourites that I have brought out again.
The one favourite I did buy this month was a Millie Marotta colouring book. Now I know I am a bit late on the band waggon with this one but I never really understood the whole hype until now! I have honestly done so many in the book and to be honest I think I spend way too much time on each page but I have been loving it. Colouring really is therapeutic and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
My next favourite is my Bath and Bodyworks Twisted Peppermint Shower gel and Body lotion. Now that the festive season is coming up I have brought these gems back out to use. Needless to say, I am very excited about Christmas.
Last but not least, the fake tan. Winter is over here in Australia and that means I need to tan up the body ready for my real tan. As always I am loving my Bondi Sands. Although lately, I have been using the dark foam rather than the lotion form. I have never been very good at fake tan so I tend to stay away from the foam, but I thought I would just bite the bullet and use it and so far so good!
Cant wait for November favourites, I have so many news things I am trying out! xx
So it has been as while since my last post and I’m annoyed at myself for not committing! I did start writing a few posts but I never got around to finishing them and I wasn’t happy with how some of them turned out. This has been due to a lot going on both exciting and not so exciting.
It’s that time of year again with uni going back and trying to get back into the swing of studying and learning. Needless to say, I had a few problems with my timetable and units which were frustrating but that is all sorted now.
On the other hand, my sister and I have been working on a special project that I am so excited about. We are still in the planning stages but it is coming along and we have got so much done which I am very pleased about. Next week we should be starting the bulk of what needs to be done to get it up and running but so far we are on track. Can wait to announce it when the final stages of planning are complete (which should be very soon!!).
Now that things are sorted and running smoothly, I am back 🙂
I hope you are all well and I look forward to writing more posts.
