So I know this is a little late, but I was busy around New Year’s and I wanted to think it through. So here are my resolutions for the coming year.
1. Lose Weight
The old favourite.
This has been on the agenda anyway, but I was ill over the Christmas period and the weight didn’t help. Also when I weighed myself for the first time in quite a while it was a sobering number on the scale.
So, more exercise, better diet and actual commitment this year. No cop out and no excuses. To aid this let’s go on to-
2. Monthly Updates on the Weight
I’ve had this plan before but it was vague. This year however every month I’m going to post an update every month about how I’ve done. The idea being that by sharing I’ll be more likely to stick to it.
So, if I near the end of a month with no news, give me a nudge.
3. Cross Off at Least One Bucket List Item
Last year I got one and a seventh done, but the list is still pretty long. I might make a concentrated effort to do a few things on it, or at least lay the ground work.
4. Try to Publish a Book
I have two finished novels sitting around and a third half done. I’m pretty happy with one of them, so I think it’s time to tidy it up a bit and send it off. It’s a little bit scary, and it might not go anywhere, but at least I can say I’ve tried. Watch this space, I guess.
5. Try New Things
Life is for living after all.
6. Be Sociable
In 2017 I saw my friends and family a lot more than usual and it was great. Doing stuff with my time off work made me happier and it was nice to keep those connections going.
Actually spending time
7. New Ink
Putting this on because it’ll be the easiest one to get done, but I am planning quite a few new tattoos and would like to get at least two done this year.
8. Be Nicer
Made any resolutions yourself, reader? Or have advice for me on how to keep mine? You know what to do. BETEO.
