Happy New Year to you all! I’m writing this as I’m sat at home on New Years Eve, having decided to stay at home and do some work on Inside Laura’s Head tonight rather than go out and spend money I don’t really have. Maybe I’m growing up (but I do wish I was out, if I’m honest!)
Like most people I’ve been thinking about what I want to achieve in the next year, and the easiest way to keep track of that is to share my plans with you guys. I’ve already got a draft post written for New Years Eve 2017 with these noted down too, so that I make sure at the time that I let you all know how I got on. Bit organised that, isn’t it!?
(I’m doing a separate post next week with my goals for Inside Laura’s Head for 2017, as I want to go into those in more depth)
Lose the extra weight
This will be achieved by following Slimming World/Weight Watchers (I can’t decide, may swap every couple of months!) after a fortnight of Rosemary Conley to really boost my loss. I’ll also be getting back to my Pole Fitness classes, wearing and properly using my Fitbit each day, and drinking tons more water
Take more photos
This should help with making me walk more, but it’ll also improve my mental health and my general wellbeing. I LOVE getting out with my camera but I don’t do it often enough. So this year I’ve used my stickers from Dorkface’s Etsy store, to pick out random dates in my 2017 diary which will prompt me to plan in some photography sessions.
I want to do more travel blogging and with that comes more travelling-and so I’m excited to announce I’ve already booked a trip away with Caitlin.
Only wear things I love
This one goes hand in hand with my losing weight. As I drop a dress size I’ll be buying new clothes and I am only buying things I love, that I look forward to wearing. Yes there will be basics-like some plain vest tops, jeans etc-but there will not be a cardigan, a jacket, a dress that I don’t love. By the end of 2017 I’m going to be excited about getting dressed each day and I’m going to do lots of fashion posts for you guys as I fill this wardrobe too.
What are your 2017 resolutions?
