I hope you all had an awesome New Years! Today's post is going to be about this upcoming year, new beginnings, and some of my personal goals for this year. I'm also going to reflect on my goals from last year and see what I accomplished! I'm going to keep the stuff from last year short and sweet so it doesn't take up the main focus of this post.
-So last year some of my goals were to eat healthier and get more into fitness. I can say that I was both sucessful and unsuccessful in this. I would get really into it for a few months and then loose motivation. But I can honestly say that Im still very proud of myself for starting the times that I did and I loved seeing how my body changed for the better in the process! This year I'm going to try harder to stick with it!
-I had a goal last year to read 100 books. I failed miserably and only read 30. The previous year I read between 60-70 so that's why I set such a high goal. I wasn't bothered by not reaching my goal because I can only read as much as I have time for!
-This wasn't part of my goals but I think I had a good start last year to removing some negative things and people from my life, working on doing things I want that make me happy, and doing things that are good for me. I took my first yoga class a few weeks ago and it really brought some positive insight to me!
That is all I'm going to talk about for last year, so let's get into what I want to do for 2015!
-More Fitness! This year I was to try to stick with fitness and heathy eating more. I was such a yoyo last year so I'm going to try my best not to loose motivation so easily this year. I also want to start doing fitness and healthy food posts on here again.
-Stop eating meat. I personally have never really liked meat. My whole life I've never liked any kind of beef or red meat. When I moved out on my own I stuck to cooking chicken, turkey, and shrimp. But honestly, I just don't love them. I never crave anything with meat in it, and sometimes it just grosses me out. This is something that I have been thinking about doing for about 10 years now and recently it's been more heavily on my mind. Cutting out meat completely is going to be a process and I know it's not something that will happen over night but hopefully I can do it!
-Reading. I'm going to set a lower goal this year to read 50 books. I've also gotten into reading different types of books, so I'm excited to see what kind I will find this year!
-Travel. I hope to travel more this year and see new places. I want to go somewhere for our anniversary in May but I am not sure where yet!
-Work on saving and not spending. I'm going to try hard this year to not spend money on so many unnecessary things (ahem, so much makeup LOL). My husband and I want to move out of our house and into a new one in a few years so we want to put away some money so we have some saved to pay extra monthly payments, which will lead to paying things off faster. When we start a family in a few years too, we will have extra money saved!
So those are my top 5 goals for this year in 2015! I'm also going to start a memory jar to put things in from this year that I want to remember! This year I really want to focus on a lot of positive things. I don't want to worry and stress so much, and I want to learn to go with the flow more. I'm going to do things for myself, focus on my marriage, and family and friends who are important to me!
I will be back next week with some makeup posts and such!
What are some of your goals for 2015? Let me know in the comments!
