New Years Resolutions 2014

5 01 2014

I’ve been doing this a couple of years now, blogging my new years resolutions and then reviewing a couple of times over the year to keep me accountable – here’s what I have for 2014. A few come from those that didn’t go so well last year!
I’ve also tried to make them measurable as otherwise it can be so vague you can’t tell if you’ve even achieved it!

  • Actively make more time for reading – I read before I go to sleep, but sometimes I doze off before I find what page I was on. Maybe lunchtimes at work, or free evenings. Let’s aim for three times a week. (My book wishlist suddenly got massive!)
  • Limit DVD binging – No more than one episode a day
  • Exercise regularly – At least twice a week (this may be aiming high, once a week would be a vast improvement!) – hasn’t started yet as been getting over a cold and totally exhausted, but maybe starting this week.
  • Lose weight – sort of combined with the above really, I don’t really plan on changing what I eat. My meals are ok, it’s only snacking that’s the issue, but I hope adding exercise to my life will do it’s bit! I have a target weight, but don’t feel like sharing that with the universe… sorry!
  • Make a better attempt at the happiness jar – Make sure I’m up to date at the end of each week. (though still need to empty last year’s!)
  • Learn more meals to cook – I was going to say once a month, but I’ll go with 6 a year on meals, and 6 a year on other things, eg cake, snacks, things that aren’t full meals.
  • Keep clothes organised and tidy – Last year I had put clothes away at the end of the day, there was an improvement but definitely could have done better. I’ve also spent a good chunk of today sorting out my drawers so stuff is folded rather than all bunged in (and put loads out for the charity shop), so I’ll try and keep this tidy too!
  • Learn to love God more, do everything for His glory, and make time for Him. – This is a resolution for every year!

That’ll do for now, I may add a couple more later if I think of them, but time to commit to these, we’re already 5 days in!
