  • Motivation and Goals

    Where I’ve been + My 2019 goals

    Hello!

    It’s been a while since I last sat down and wrote a blog post. In fact, my last blog post was posted on November 4th and then I literally vanished for a while. I planned on taking a break for a couple of weeks but it ended up being much longer.

    If you’re wondering where I’ve been, the reason for my absence is that I got a kitten. I say Kitten; he was 4 and a half months when we got him and he’s now nearly 6 months. Pudsey has been very challenging, to say the least! Sleep became non-existent with a lovely 4am wake-up call each morning from a very distressed and upset kitty. Now, after about 6 weeks he’s finally started to settle and actually lets us sleep until 7am! He’s absolutely gorgeous and I wouldn’t change him for the world… But he made me very sleep deprived so the reality is I neglected my blog.

    Anyway enough about Pudsey (As cute as he is) … I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas break and are all feeling refreshed and ready to tackle 2019!

    I thought I would share my 2019 goals with you all in today’s post. You can see my goals for 2018 here. I actually succeeded in all of them apart from opening an Etsy shop.

    2019 Goals

    Get fit 

    Usually, I stay well away from any goals to do with fitness because I’m rubbish at it. But the reality is that I’ve put on about 2 stone in weight since being in a ‘comfortable’ relationship and I’ve reached the point that I’m repulsed by my own body. I’ve never particularly suffered from body confidence issues but this last year I’ve felt pretty rubbish about myself. I’m off to Florida in May for my birthday so to make it a little more fun I’m calling it #FitForFlorida. I’ve ordered the Jessica Smith Walk the Weight Off 30-day plan DVD as I love her YouTube channel. I’ll keep you updated with my progress.

    Open an Etsy shop 

    As I mentioned above, this is the one goal that I didn’t manage to achieve last year so I’m even more determined to make it happen this year. I love anything creative and would love to open an online shop that sells greeting cards, printed quotes and planner stickers. I’ve been working on my shop branding over the last few weeks and I’m excited to share it with you all soon.

    Read more books 

    Over the last few weeks, I’ve really got back into reading again. I go through phases of reading and then life gets busy and I just stop for months and months. I enjoy reading so much, I find it a brilliant way to switch off and take some time out for myself. 2019 is definitely going to be the year I read more. If anyone has any book recommendations then please let me know. My favourite genre is psychological thrillers.

    What are your goals for 2019?
