New Year's Resolutions

Here are my resolutions for 2016...


star Get Fit star

I really need to lose weight and generally improve my fitness levels. We (I say we because Anthony has no choice in the matter!) have been making plans for a much healthier 2016. Eating better, being more active, and setting a good example for Marianna.

star Be More Organised star

So much to do, so little time... I've got some planners for the various aspects of my life, and we've drawn up some household rotas to help stay on top of the cleaning and stuff like that. Calendars have been filled out, and my email inboxes cleared. It all links in to the healthier living, and reducing the stress levels.

star Level Up My Blog star

2015 was a good year for the blog, don't get me wrong, but it was all about finding my feet. In 2016 I want to build on these foundations and really make something of this little corner of cyberspace. I'm aiming to post everyday again, and have already written up dozens of general and magazine scan posts to make life easier. Hopefully this will free up time to guest blog, promote, and get my name out there.

star Budget star

My nightmares all came true in terms of finance last year, and I surprised myself by my ability to juggle everything. The problem is that every month I'm down to the very last penny of my overdraft by the time payday rolls around. Hopefully Anthony will find a new job in 2016, but I can't rely on that so I really want to get into couponing and cashback, up my comping game, and work on my thriftiness.

star Make Memories star

Way too much of 2015 has been given over to illness, stressing, worrying, and otherwise skirting the edges of blind panic. I want to focus more on doing things in 2016 - getting out and about, having fun, and just enjoying life. It's too short, after all!



Have you made any resolutions for 2016?

  1. Sounds similar to my resolutions! Getting fit, getting organised and sorting out finances are a must! But the main thing for me is cherish every moment with my girls and make sure they have the best time. Anything else is a bonus. Have a great New Year's and pob lwc for 2016! X

  3. Fabulous choices, I think these plans will hit all the hot spots. I'm doing a year long self acceptance challenge so I had no plans to set a resolution but I love the term 'level up' and so I resolve to use is as often and inappropriately as possible - I'm gonna level up my nandos this year etc

    1. That's a really good idea! I didn't bother last year as I knew I wouldn't stick to anything, but I feel more 'ready' this year to make changes, if that makes sense.

    1. I almost managed every day last year so I'm not too worried about that one - it's sticking to the healthy eating that will be the real challenge for me! :)

    1. I didn't bother last year - I tried getting back into my aerobics and all that, then pulled my c-section stitches and that was that!

  9. My resolutions are pretty much this every year! I recommend meal planning, that ticks two off your list. I've lost over a stone last year and feel so much better. This year I want to eat more soups to get more veggies in to me (and eat less sandwiches)
    Good luck with it all
