For 2018, I set myself less resolutions as I’m not too sure where the year will lead. I’ll be changing jobs, potentially moving, etc, so it seemed easier to not go too crazy.
So here’s a look at how I got on in January:
1-Eat healthier and exercise
In January I did possibly the best I’ve ever done! I hit the gym 2-3 times per week and made lots of healthy home cooked meals. I still had some treats but I definitely achieved this resolution!
I sadly didn’t read any ‘proper’ books in January, but I read two travel books. As they’re similar, I’m classing it as one book read last month.
-Lonely Planet Belgium & Luxembourg
-Lonely Planet Pocket Bruges & Brussels
3-Do 2 new things per month
Despite January being a quieter month for me, I did a couple of new things.
I ate at Mooshies (Vegan Burger Bar).
And also tried doughnuts from Dum Dums Donutterie.
4-Visit three NEW countries and three NEW cities (Any new towns and villages, or extra cities/countries are a bonus)
I visited no new cities, towns, villages or countries in January as I wanted a quieter month after travelling most of December.
5-Use up what I have before buying more
Resolution achieved. I didn’t buy anything in January, nor was I tempted as I have a lot of things to use from Christmas, gifts from my partner for our anniversary etc. I focused on using up what I already have.
My bonus resolution was to have more ‘me time’, which I managed in January. I had more pampering sessions at home and long bubble baths. I watched more TV, cooked at home, went to the gym. I did more things for me and had a quieter month.
Let me know how you’re getting on with your New Year’s Resolutions.
