How I’m Keeping Up With My New Years Resolutions

Hi There,

So in my depressed time of spending the daunting New Years Midnight moment alone outside watching the neighbours fireworks I decided to write myself a list, one that I would actually stick to this year to make moments like that never happen again. I mean I know its March but I’m sure thats enough time to see if I have stuck to any and give myself a kick up the backside if I haven’t. I want to take life as it comes and make sure I get through my list of places to visit and not waste another year being unproductive.

  • Have a you year

This may be a strange one for most of yous but I wanted to focus on myself this year, to better myself from the year before, to be more positive and to say yes to every situation. I wish to make the most of my last year living with my housemates in Newcastle, I want to look back at my time and think that I gave it my all and had no regrets.

  • Learn how to drive

This is going to be my biggest goal this year, since failing my driving test 4 years ago I’ve been afraid to get back into a car and try again to pass just in case it happens again. But I’m going to kick this fear by the butt and start calling around this lessons this week.

  • Go Travelling

In my exact words I wrote ‘ Go travelling, it doesn’t matter where or how far or what company, just go!’ and this is the one I’ve stuck to the most. On my days off I’ve been filling them with visiting restaurants that has been on my food list for ages and in February I went to Madrid on a random week off work. I want to spend my time exploring and making new memories and hopefully when I pass my driving test (fingers crossed) that can happen more too.

  • Stick with going to the GYM

This one I actually have been doing.. well not as much as I should be like atleast one or two times a week, I’m aiming to up to it to about three maybe four but I love my bed and I find it hard to give up the cosiness and star trek marathons. I just need to find my motivation and channel my inner Kim Kardashian.

  • Do what you love

Under this category I had wrote gaming, reading, writing, watching movies and exploring new places. These are the things that I love doing and I just wanted to make sure I reminded myself what those activities are, sometimes when I’m so caught up with work I forget about what I love doing. But since writing this I’ve completed assassins creed, hosted games night, read five books and found a passion for sci-fi again.

Does anyone else have any revolutions that they’re stuck to or ones that they still need to tick of their lists?

How I stay motivated for the gym.

I constantly find myself finding excuses to not attending the gym such as I cant be bothered or I have just have too much work to waste my time, it is becoming a common theme. I pack my bag, get in the right mindset and just do not end up going and its so easy to do. But to fight this I needed a goal, something to work out for rather than just looking at how many calories I was burning on each machine. I started with the goal to lose weight but its easy to forgot that goal especially after a few weeks. So I signed up and paid to do a colour run in May with friends from my university course which is 5k so now I have  goal even if it isnt a long distance. I plan on starting with fast walking for that distance then add in some running every session until I feel like I can run the whole distance. I hope after doing this I will keep running and working on losing weight so maybe I can take part in the Great North Run. I struggle with keeping up running for a long period of time so having this goal is a reason to keep going until I can and go from there. Also making sure my bag is packed with my gym workout clothes, a bottle of water and healthy snacks gives me no excuse because I am just prepared to go. Add this to eating healthy means that my body is fuelled with the right ingredients to run and lose weight and keep me full of energy which I will need with this kind of training. Going to the gym and keeping motivated is hard but its worth the feeling of achievement in the end and that you are doing something good for your mind and body.
