N E W Y E A R S R E S O L U T I O N
As we close the doors for 2014 and welcome 2015 with open arms, it's nice to have a fresh new start and set goals to challenge us throughout the year. I felt to write my New Years Resolutions, well, more like a change of lifestyle. I never really set goals for myself, however, this year, I felt like it was time for a change. A good change. Hopefully I'll stick to most (or at least one) till the end of the year!
P e r s o n a l G o a l s
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE & A FITNESS ROUTINE
This is pprobablythe most popular new years' resolution! I did start my fitness and lifestyle change earlier (24th January) as I wanted a head start, and mainly because I was just motivated to do it.
It doesn't matter if you're early or late. There's no set time to start. Just start! I don't drink that much water. Hopefully, this year will change, favorably, I always loved ice-cold water, even in the winter, it's just remembering to put the jug in the fridge. For Christmas, I also got a smoothie maker from my mother-in-law, which means more fruits, more veggies, more yummy healthy snacks/lunches and maybe a few recipes for the blog!
I also purchased a treadmill, yup! I was spending nearly £52 a month for gym membership and Argos was having a sale (4 months of gym prices equals a treadmill) so I went for it, cancelled my membership and grabbed that machine with open arms. My room is officially a gym with a bed lol As you can seem I'm all set. Now, time to maintain.
I am very, very, very family-orientated. I guess, growing up in a big Asian family, it's just the norm to celebrate anything and everything with family all around. Cooked a lot for dinner? The whole family's over. Bored? The whole family's over. As I am now a mum, I also want to carry on the tradition of always having family around and doing everything as a loving, supportive unit.
FIND AND MAINTAIN A GOOD SKINCARE ROUTINE
My skin has been terribly dry this season. it's the worse its ever been! I am still on the look out for new products that suit my skin type. I also would love to keep a consistent facial routine day and night as I also want to try and not wear makeup every day.
SAY "YES" TO MORE OPPORTUNITIES
I suffer from anxiety and occasionally agoraphobia, so I lack the confidence to say "yes" to a lot of opportunities. I tend to psyche myself out stuff for no reason. Finally, last year, I attended a blogger event where I had so much fun and met so many amazing people! I would love to and attend more and more as I get comfortable and build my confidence, and maybe once and for all, find a way to suppress my anxiety that stops me from being all that I can be.
ALWAYS SAY TRUE TO MYSELF & GAIN CONFDENCE
Besides my anxiety, I also have body issues. As a plus-size young woman, in a society where bootys, boobies and tiny waists are a "thing," it is hard to find the confidence. Well, it was. Since having a child and finding a more positive outlook in life, I am on my journey to finding the inner-confidence to not care about whats others' think.
My biggest resolution, not only for this year, is to teach my daughter to be herself - by setting a good example throughout her life.
FIND A JOB
It's that time to start finding a job to care of my family, especially now that we have our own home. I feel that this year is filled with so many opportunities, and of course, obstacles to overcome. It is hard to find a job these days, but when there's a will, there's a way. And for my family, there's always a way.

Good luck, I know you can do it!!!! Yep fitness is one thing for me I really want to hone in on but its all about being healthy for me and my family now! And also saying yes to opportunities my biggest thing, Im not going to simply step outside my comfort zone...I'm going to jump out as big as I can!ReplyDelete
we have the same resolution. good luck with it hunReplyDelete
I love that you want to say yes to more opportunities! I sometime struggle with my self-esteem and confidence and this is something that I would definitely want to work on!ReplyDelete
I too suffer from anxiety and agoraphobia I wrote about it www.dolcevanity.com/2015/01/wasting-my-20s-and-i-feel-fine.html and I know how you feel it's a struggle for sure. One that not many can understand unless they live it. I do think that friends and family help if they are understanding but it does start from within. I've been referred to cognitive behaviour therapy in the hopes I can now change my way of thinking. Battling depression makes it hard for me to find the motivation to keep up exercise but I'm definitely wanting to change that and as you read I'm beginning minimalism in the hopes that changing my way of thinking with 'stuff' can help me to focus on what's important.ReplyDelete
So here's to you girl and good luck xo
