I’ve been writing New Years Resolutions for years. I’ve had my current phone for 4 years and I’ve still got each year saved to my notes. It’s always something I’ve sat long and hard and thought about. What I want to achieve that year, where I want to be by the end of the year. I think it’s nice to have plans and have it written down to refer back to. I usually achieve my resolutions, I probably don’t set hard enough ones but by the end of the year I’m usually pleased with what I have achieved. That was until last year, 2015, which was a disaster.
2015 New Years Resolutions
Buy a House; we’ve managed to save the deposit so I guess we’re half way there. But both being self-employed makes getting a mortgage ridiculously difficult. We’ve saved much more than ‘average’ for a deposit but we’re still not getting anywhere with the mortgage side of things. This is on my resolutions for this year but I’m starting to think it’s an ‘undoable’ task *cries*.
Run 10k; my fitness is awful and by the end of 2015, I still can’t run the 200m to the local pub. I’m meant to be running a half marathon in September which is laughable but if I achieve it, or even attempt it I hope people can reflect on the fact I couldn’t even run 200m 9 months prior.
Finish Gym; there’s a container at my work that I was going to turn into a little gym room to workout at lunchtimes or before/after work. I got as far as painting it and that’s about it. Getting really disappointed in myself whilst writing this post…
Get Fit and Tone Up; in my non existent gym and I don’t think you could call being able to run 200m fit *cries even more*. I help Sam in the workshop and I struggle holding things above my head for more than a minute. Something that Sam would do for hours without thinking about it. I’m lucky I’ve stayed slim considering how unfit I am.
Blog At Least 3 Times A Week; the only resolution I have done, which shows just how much my blog means to me and just how motivated I am by it. If I set blog goals, I reach them, if I don’t, I try harder, then I reach them. I don’t know why I can’t be motivated in my health and fitness and life as I am with my blog.
