At the beginning of January I made three resolutions for the new year (read them here). As I’m writing this I can only actually remember one- and I haven’t started that one yet. However, I do remember that what I said was important to me at the time, so I thought one month later it’s worth having a check back to see how I am doing.
And here they are:
1. Good Health
The plan: To do a whole 30 and to get down to the gym.
Well the good news is that I have just completed my whole 30 and am feeling great. I’ve lost some Christmas weight and am ready to treat myself to some new clothes. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I’ve decided to keep going- at least at 90%. I know that grains and dairy make me feel worse so I’m going to cut those out completely, but a teeeeny bit of good quality dark chocolate is about to be reintroduced….
The gym part hasn’t exactly gone to plan. I would be lying if I said that I’d never got my gym clothes on and fallen asleep on the sofa. It’s just really hard to get up and go when it’s cold and dark and you’ve been both a full time mother and a working mother at the same time. So there’s an area for improvement.
2.Make a Savings Plan
The plan: to make a solid plan for saving money and make it happen.
The January sales? Don’t judge me.
3. To Perfect the Art of Eyeliner
The plan: To figure out how to use liquid eyeliner without looking like it was applied by a two year old.
This is the one I haven’t started yet. I did try once, but I was getting ready to go out and it was making me late. Must schedule an hour in front of a mirror with lots of makeup remover. And a Pinterest tutorial.
So one month in and although I haven’t achieved everything, I still have 11 months to go. I think I’ve made an alright start but I’m definitely ready to kick it up a notch….. watch this space.
