Warning, this will be lengthy.
Hello all! Happy New Year! I hope everyone’s holidays were splendid and everyone got a chance to relax :).
My 2016 saw some amazing things! I really love to recap my previous year to start the next year off on a positive note. My 2016 saw the following:
2017 has already started off with a bang! One of my best friends just had her 25th birthday and got engaged! I’m so excited for her, such a wonderful start to my 2017.
I’ve been hearing a lot of people somewhat ask, “what is the point to starting New Years Resolutions?” Well, to me, it is just a great time to start trying to be more mindful of personal growth. I see resolutions as a way to push yourself throughout the year trying to get myself to grow and have new challenges while breaking out of my comfort zone. My 2017 will focus on one thing: My Health. Following this my resolutions are the following:
Most of these center around being more mindful of my mind and body, something I really want to focus on this year and moving towards my later years in life. I’m starting to really get more comfortable with my body shape, but exercising does help improve my confidence in my body. This low energy makes it feel as though I can’t push through a workout, and hopefully the next two months will see a great change in this.
Do you have any goals for 2017? If so, I’d love to hear them!
Since getting hacked, I’ve been super busy. Busy trying to get better that is. I’ve been plagued by a cold for about a week and a half now and I think it’s finally (fingers crossed) slowly starting to go away. I’ve had a few really good knock out nights of sleep and a lot of lazing around when I’m not at work. Due to this, however, I’ve been slacking so much on working out, exercising, and eating right. I think a lot of it has to do with just wanting to sleep and be in my bed re-watching Charmed instead of doing anything else.
I have been keeping ahead of the 52 Week Money Challenge and believe I am saved up until week 6. Every now and then I’ll throw in $10-$20 to just stay ahead and keep saving for my laptop. A friend from work is selling me his gently used iPhone 5 while he gets a new one and it only doesn’t vibrate but I might have to get it unlocked which you can apparently do for cheaper these days than the $150 I spent three years ago on my iPhone 4 that I currently am using.
I did get accepted into 3/4 of the colleges programs I applied to. Two are postgraduate’s diplomas while one is just a basic college program at the college that is in the city I am in and I am anxiously waiting to hear back about their postgraduate program acceptance as well. Still not a word from law schools yet, however.
Other than that, I’ve honestly feel like I’ve been a workaholic but things seem to be slowing down a bit. The reading week is coming up which means I get a weekend off and a week off from having to manage the restaurant, but still have to work and do a lot of paperwork to catch up on and implementing programs for the following year’s managing team. Just feels as though I have a lot more on my plate than usual than most right now, but things are looking up!
How has the start to your year been? Have you been slacking a bit like me, or are you ahead of the game?
