It’s now June and well that slightly terrifies me! Where is this year going?
I thought I would use this realisation as a push to look back on my resolutions for this year and see how I’m getting on.
Things to Change
Spend less time on my phone, specifically social media – I started off well with this and have since slipped back into old habits but I feel I am getting better again.
Stop comparing myself and my life to others – Again this is a tough one because I suppose you can’t expect a lot of change in only 6 months but I do feel I am giving myself the tools to make a change.
Put myself first every so often rather than running myself into the ground for others constantly – I actually think I have done well with this one. I haven’t went completely the other way and only thought of myself but I have learnt to say no when I don’t want to do something. Drink more water – since starting my new job in February I have managed to up my water intake in a desperate attempt to stop me snacking.
These are more just ways of living rather than specific goals so
Things to Achieve
Lose a few more inches off my legs and waist – Ok so my measurements have went down since the start of the year but not an overly noticeable amount on paper and tbh not as much as I had planned. Saying that I can see a bit more definition in my legs and waist despite the number not being what I want but most importantly I have so much more stamina! I feel this is going to help greatly in my goal for the end of the year.
Travel back to Copenhagen – didn’t quite go to plan for March but managed an amazing return trip in April! Reach 40 followers on my blog – I have far surpassed this and I’m so pleased with it 😊
Complete my book list for 2018 – I’d say for halfway through the year I am doing ok but I’ll be doing a separate post on this at the end of the month to properly find out so watch this space.
Travel to somewhere different (wishful thinking so somewhere like Japan or New York kind of different) – Well this was a bit of a long shot anyway but so far I am planning to go to Japan next April. Other than that I’m spending the rest of this year enjoying holidays a little bit closer to home.
So at the halfway mark I seem to be managing through alright. Need to keep working on that TBR list but other than that it looks like I just need to keep pushing forward with my more positive approach to life.
To be honest I think I could add a few now so
Start using a 8kg kettle bell for a full class at kettlecise – I actually already started using one but off and on throughout the class so hopefully I’ll be make it to a full class soon.
Book some stuff for my Japan holiday next year to really start setting things in motion
Get my 5k run times to 30 minutes
See you back here for my end of year review and let’s hope I can cross everything off
