2014 was a bit of an odd year. I moved into a beautiful new home, made some good progress with my blog and overall was extremely happy, but it doesn’t feel like I accomplished that much. The last few months I spent working as a temp in retail so my blog and business both took a back seat, as did my driving lessons. There’s a few things I’d really like to achieve in 2015.
Aaah, the obvious one. I’ve been saying this for years but this year saw my weight go up by about two stone to a size I’m extremely unhappy with. I’m only a small lady at 5’2 so any weight gain is extremely obvious on me, and the majority of the clothes in my wardrobe are now at bursting point or no longer fit at all. After Christmas I felt pretty disgusting with how much I’ve eaten so I started after boxing day, and I’ve already lost 5lbs which I’m happy with. I’ve got a pretty long way to go but I’m determined to finally make this a lifestyle change for good and stop filling my face with chocolate and takeaways.
With the lack of time I had around the last few months of the year with working in retail and moving home, my little online store and blog got extremely neglected. At the moment I probably spent about the time that’s necessary on working, but I need to put more into it. I’m looking at ways to try and grow both through 2015 and hopefully I’ll get some results from the effort I’ll be putting in. I’d also like to do more vintage fairs across the year and really try to get my name out there.
I have a bit of a fear of exercising. The last time I went to the gym I was about seventeen, and I actually used to run outside at that age too. Nowadays I would find it much too embarassing exercising outside, but considering I work from home there really is no excuse any more. My fitness levels are virtually non-existant but I’m just bought some new gear and I’ll be kicking it off with Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred so try and build them up a bit more.
I’ve always quite enjoyed being a bit crafty, but most of the time I put things off for ages before doing them and being really happy with the result. I’ve bought some copper spray paint to revamp a couple of things but so far they’re just sitting in the cupboard, and I’d really like to give weaving a go. I need a good kick up the bum to get me going!
Do you have any goals for 2015?
