I can’t believe we’re already at double digits, i.e. 10th day, of 2016 already.
I stupidly didn’t set any goals for 2015 because I wanted to “Smile more, worry less!” but I actually spent last year feeling pretty miserable because of unbloggable reasons.
I’ve learnt my lesson and I have plenty of 2016 goals which I want to share with you all :-
1. Get fit
Nearly all of my girlfriends got into running last year and I wanted to be part of their squad; but alas the only thing that runs in my life is my eyeliner! Anyway, there’s many ways to get fit so I’m starting the Kayla Itsines’ BBG 1.0 tomorrow!!! Follow me on Instagram & Snapchat to see me sweat @LingOutLoud
2. Eat healthier
McDonald’s was my second home last year and now I’ve got a massive food baby which I need to get rid of ASAP because I’m going to be a bridesmaid to one of my BFFs in Scotland in August…eeks!!! I refuse to use the word “diet” because that automatically makes me crave all the junk food.
3. Tackle something on my to-do list before watching Netflix
No more Netflix binges! It works out better this way because I can tick things off my to-do list and also, I won’t easily run out of Netflix episodes to watch.
4. Spend even more time with people that matter
Instead of trying to make friends with people that I am iffy about, I’m just going to keep working on the current friendships I have. And be grateful that they accept me as I am!!!!
And of course, I will be spending even more quality time with my little fambam,
This my never-ending goal because when I declutter, I end up buying more stuff and hoarding it….arghhhh!!!!! I actually started decluttering during my Christmas break and got rid of 30-40 pairs of shoes!!! It felt sooooo good! But then I went and bought 5 new pairs of shoes hahaha.
6. Sponsor a child
I’ve been inspired by a couple I know who have a few sponsored children via Compassion and it’s something that I really want to start doing this year, together with my husband.
7. Cook recipes from my cookbooks
I have a zillion cookbooks but I have never ever cooked any recipes from them. Instead, I like to google recipes and amalgamate them together because I think I’m kinda cool and creative haha. I am hoping to try and make a few Jamie Oliver recipes this year.
7 goals is more than enough to keep me busy for the rest of the year. If I achieve them, fantastico, but if I don’t, I will try again in 2017.
I also had some crazy totally un-achievable goals that I scrapped after thinking them through properly…
1. Do a daily vlog
Firstly, I work full-time. Who wants to see a vlog of that?!! BO-RING!!!! Secondly, where would I find the time to edit and upload it???
2. Apply makeup every day
Yes, I know I am a beauty blogger and have a room full of makeup but I’d rather have an extra 10 minutes in bed than put on makeup for work. Besides, at work, I wear a mask and a visor so it’s pretty pointless.
3. Spend more time offline
Who am I kidding? I love being online and chatting to my online friends. I also finally caught onto Snapchat and I’m constantly checking that haha. Add me – LingOutLoud
So what were your goals for this year? How is 2016 treating you so far?
