New year goals

As it’s the time of year for reflection and goal setting I’ve been thinking about what I want from the year ahead.

I’m not one for new year, new me. I’m pretty happy with my life but there are a few things I’d like to set my mind on and by writing them down and sharing them, it might help me stick with them too!

1. Eat healthy

With motivation from my hubby booking our first sun holiday since 2013 (when I was a loooooooot slimmer) I need to stick to this one! We are off to Tenerife and I don’t want to be worrying about how I look and feeling uncomfortable instead of having an amazing time with my family. We eat way too many takeaways so it’s my mission this year to cook more meals from scratch. I’ll probably share a few on my blog along the way with a bit about my weight loss! Not sure if I’m going to stick to a particular diet or just try to be more healthy in general so if you have any tips, throw them my way!

2. Print photos

I have always been a photo lover, as far back as I can remember I always had my disposable camera with me, until I was upgraded to my parents hand me down camera! I used to love going to get the films developed and looking through photo albums. Although photos are a lot easier to take now which means we have more, i feel that the speciality of them has worn off a little and other than scrolling through my Instagram feed every now and then I rarely look back at the photos. So I’m going to make use of the free prints app and get my 45 free photos printed off each month and put them in photo albums.

3. Move to a new house

This one isn’t so much a resolution, but more a goal. We currently live in a tiny two bedroom house so it’s kind of a must. My ideal will be a three bedroom house with a dining room/large kitchen. I hate that we don’t have a dining table in our current house and even more so now Lydia is getting older and before the middle of the year Charlotte will be in a highchair too. I also have my heart set on Lydia getting into a particular nursery and school which is over subscribed each year so we need to be close to that school to try and guarantee her place.

That’s about it, other than ensuring I make tons more memories with my girls and hubby.

Wishing you all a very happy new year, feel free to share your own resolutions in the comments.
