I do really love these posts. I know it’s uncool to have new years resolutions these days, and there will be edge lords on Twitter who will slate people who are doing something, but there’s just something nice about the start of a new year to make a change.
Previous years: 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009
First, as ever, I like to look back at last years resolutions
- Be brave
- Be brave in doing more things
- Be brave in meeting new people
- Be brave in just leaving comments online
Doing more things – well, I guess I did do this…except then I agreed to try skiing.
Meet new people – I started the year well, going to events, and then I had my accident and felt like that really put me back a few squares. But towards the end of the year, I created a reoccurring event in a local group where I go to a coffee shop and if anyone wants to join me to do some work, then they can. At the very least, it gets me out of the house…the dogs are great but they are not very good at conversations.
Leaving comments online – I tried, I really have. I still feel super awkward, especially when the person doesn’t really know me.
- Less procrastinating
ahahahhahahah Why am I so bad at this?
- Get back into shape
This has been so difficult and I’ve not done well at it. With the knee still recovering, I can’t run or jump (which cuts out a lot of HIIT routines) but I’ve started seeing a personal trainer again who finds exercises for me to try. The knee gives out sometimes, but much less than it did even a month ago, so I guess it’s getting stronger!
- Blog more?
I guess I haven’t really done much on here because I haven’t really done anything worth talking about, but I feel like I’ve been much better about posting on Bonjour, Blogger! which can be difficult, finding something to post three times a week.
So, 2019! Let’s do this.
- Meet more people
You don’t really realise how big your circles are until you move away from them. When it hits 4pm here, things get very quiet online and it’s just a bit meh. I want to find more cool local people to follow!
- No, really, get into shape
I know, it’s so basic, and the diet industry is a terrible one that preys on your insecurities, but I know that I feel better at a certain weight, not just in how I look, but literally in how my body works. I can feel some of the pains I haven’t had for a few years coming back, and I don’t want that.
- Take better care of my body
Not just in terms of fitness, but things like remembering to moisturise daily and take my vitamins. I know these are basic things that everyone seems to just do automatically, but I have never been able to do it!
- Do the things without worrying about other people
It’s hard, it’s always something I have on the list – I have ideas and plans for my ~*online presence*~ that I know would be useful, but I put them off because I’m worried about what other people think. I launched
Tell me about your resolutions!
