So yet another year has rolled around faster than a cheetah on cocaine*. Another year older but hopefully wiser. I have hit the ripe old age of 28. Deep down I thought this number would make me freak out and start checking for wrinkles, grey hairs, etc. however I am the happiest I have ever been. The most comfortable in my skin. Just loving and embracing life. (*quoting a line from Dukes of Hazzard)
While I have yet again missed the New Years resolution post for 2015 on the blog and the sum up of 2014, I must admit that I don’t usually set resolutions. This year however I have set myself a few of goals that I’d like to have achieved by the end of the year.
1. To manage my work/home/family balance more efficiently.
I have relocated my office to the actual office and not in the living room where I will be distracted. This will hopefully have me focused and work more proficiently; therefore cutting down work hours that I could spend with my family instead of trying to do it all at once.
2. As cliché as this goal is, I’d like to get more active and lose some weight.
As I said above I am happy and confident in my skin and losing weight isn’t a huge part of this goal, yes it would be nice but not my ultimate aim. I want to get healthy, fit and active. I want to set a good example for my children; eating better and exercising regularly. Monkey see, monkey do and all that. I didn’t push myself into getting my pre-pregnancy figure back (because the chances of that happening are slim to none) and just wanted to take my time and enjoy our beautiful baby. I have certainly done that and before I knew it 18 months had passed. I think it is now time to give myself that kick up the arse and get into shape. It is important to note that I will still indulge and enjoy food, just more moderately.
3. Do more for myself.
This is pretty self explanatory and something many mothers will have on their list this year. I always put everyone before my wants and this year I am going to try and make myself a priority. I will buy myself a few pretty things. I will get my hair done more, I’ll get a facial and I WILL get my first ever manicure and pedicure. Yep I’m now 28 and I have never experienced a mani/pedi!
Do you have a goal you want to share? Maybe you have a similar resolution and would like to support one another? I’d love you to share below!
