This year is just flying-by and so far I’ve only given one update on how I’m doing. So here’s a look at how I did in February and March with my resolutions.
1-Eat healthier and exercise
I so wanted to be good, but at the start of February I went on holiday to Belgium. That was followed by Pancake Day, Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and all I did was eat!
The unhealthy eating carried on through March, as did the lack of exercise. I went to the gym once at the end of March, did some walking on my Belgian holiday and my Lapland trip, but that was it.
However, I did have a valid excuse for March as I was ill for most of the month, so I couldn’t exercise.
Another resolution I failed on. I just didn’t read anything other than magazines sadly.
3-Do 2 new things per month
Okay this resolution I managed to achieve!
We visited Bruges and Ghent in Belgium. Ghent was a new city for us.
We did a lot of new activities, such as visit the Torture Museum in Bruges, see the Lichtfestival (Light Festival) in Ghent and ate at new restaurants such as Salade Folle (Bruges).
We went to our first Vegan Nights event in London.
And we tried new food stalls in Camden, such as Oli Baba’s halloumi fries and The Cheese Wheel pasta.
In March we did quite a few new things on our trip to Lapland:
We visited Culture House Korundi (art museum), went snowmobiling and more.
We went to another Vegan Nights event, but ate at new food stalls.
I cooked a vegan bolognese from scratch for the first time.
And also ate at the Cook Daily restaurant in London for the first time.
4-Visit three NEW countries and three NEW cities (Any new towns or villages, or any extra countries and cities are a bonus)
In February we returned to Belgium which isn’t a new country for us. We visited Bruges where we’ve been before, but Ghent was a new city for us.
Rovaniemi in Lapland (Finland) isn’t a new city or country for us, as we first went there in December.
5-Use up what I have before buying more
In February I only purchased a few cheap beauty bits in Bruges.
Whilst in March I bought some bath bits and makeup in Lapland. I also ordered some makeup online.
In February I didn’t have much ‘me time’, nor did I in March. March was a much quieter month due to illness but I felt too unwell to care much for myself.
Let me know how you’re getting on with your New Year’s Resolutions.
