I don’t know about you, but I am pleased to be getting back into a routine. Personally, I struggle with Christmas & New Year. They’re not my favourite celebrations, for various reasons, but the fact that my routine disappears doesn’t help. I get up later, stay up later, healthy eating and exercise goes out the window and everything feels difficult. The one good thing about one year ending and a new one beginning means that you have an opportunity to make the changes you’ve been thinking about for a while. Resolutions rarely last beyond the second week of January, so I’m setting myself goals for the year, things I want to achieve and good habits I want to adopt.
Last year, I worked on improving my fitness and healthy eating. Sadly, it didn’t last to the end of the year. And I’m suffering for it now! I feel sluggish, uncomfortable and in pain. So we’re back on the healthy eating wagon, am exercising three times a week and taking Poppy on some longer walks. One big thing I want to do is to finally get to grips with my money, making sure I’ve got a decent savings plan. I’m going to need a new car soon so need to work on saving for that too. I also want to take Poppy on as many new walks as possible. She loves going to new places, as do I and there are so many great places to walk in and around Oxfordshire. There are some redecorating jobs I want to do around the house, though none as massive as redecorating my study, which was an epic, epic mission! In my head, I’m starting to think of our next house, so want to get this house all sorted asap.
How about you? What are your plans and goals for 2015?
