Summer Goals!

Summer is here once again, and out of all the seasons July is my favourite…maybe because I was born in this month. So to kickstart it, I’ve made a list of my summer goals!

-Go out more! ~ I am slowing becoming more and more of a hermit crab and it really needs to stop, everyone says your 20’s are the years for living life to the full and to be honest…I’m wasting them.
– Drink more ~ For a normal 23 year old I don’t drink as half as much as I should…and for a single 23 year old It’s even worse…plus if your going to drink in any month it might swell be my birthday month!
– Take more chances (for example in love) ~ Ugh. That’s the only thing I can say. I just need to.
– Go on adventures ~ Walking, hiking, driving, flying, heck even some of my dreams could have more adventures.
– Try running again ~ I tried this a few weeks ago for the first time in years. It hurt a lot…but I just need to persevere.
– Finish my book ~ Due to my current obsession with Netflix it’s hard to make time for anything else…but I started a book so this month, I. Shall. Finish. It!
– Go to a spa ~ I still haven’t been to a spa yet and heck I deserve some pampering! So where better to do it?
– Be better with money ~ I have been in my overdraft for ages now, so I really need to sort my shit out…like pronto.
– Be reckless ~ I mean I feel like this is self explanatory after my other points…I mean you could even say this list is a bit reckless due to not making this 10 bullet points and only 9…😜

Starting the gym…again

I am without doubt one of the laziest people in the world. If I can do anything…you’ll either find me asleep or eating. I hate working out…or really anything to do with exercise. I mean I’m sure I’d like it if I stuck to it and starting to see the results, but it’s just getting into it and keeping the motivation. Anyway regardless of that I’ve bit the bullet and joined the gym. So this is the start of my fitness journey. If I can even call it that!

My aim is really just to tone up, although I would like to lose a little bit of weight it isn’t a must in my mind. But after being a single for a year, you can start to get pretty comfortable with the lazy lifestyle that goes with the ‘comfy’ body. And to be completely honest I’m not just comfortable…I’m in love with being lazy.

Anyway just so I can attempt to stick to it, I’ve decided to write a list of areas I want to improve on and goals for working on them.

So my main aims is to go to the gym three times a week, spread out so I don’t overwork myself or damage myself like the last time I attempted weights πŸ˜‚ (told you I suck at working out). The main areas I want to focus on are my abs, arms, thighs and my butt…so basically nearly everywhere on my body.

It’s do-able if I stick to it, I just hate waiting so long for results. I’m very impatient when working out which is probably the worst way to be in the gym. But I guess if I’m going to make a good attempt at toning my body up, I might as well do it now…after all I have a lotΒ of free time!

Wish me luck! πŸ’ͺ🏼

Plans for 2015

So 2015 has begun, and a number of questions will have entered people’s minds when the hangover had passed on new years… What will be different this year? What do I want to achieve? How can I be better? I thought about this, and have decided to devise a list of my own plans or even hopes for this year.

1. Pass my driving test – This is quite a big plan, and has been in my mind for a while. But now my test is in sight…I just hope I’ll pass first time.

2. Buy a car – This is really only if number one goes to plan. Can’t say I haven’t already started looking though in excitement though.

3. Travel More – I’ve mentioned this in a few of my other posts saying I want to travel, and explore the world. So this year I’m going to attempt to go somewhere new every month, even if it’s just for a couple of days.

4. Get Fitter – This is probably on a lot of people’s lists every year (mine included) but this year I’m really going to push myself. Running, circuit training, cycling, yoga, anything going really…maybe even a tough mudder.

5.Blog more – Write about anything and everything. Try not to focus only on topics I have a lot to say about, but also just everyday thoughts. So be prepared for some strange posts.

6. Try my hand at short films – I have a few ideas already scribbled down for short films, so this year I will attempt to put these online if possible.

7. Buy a better camera! – I love taking pictures, mainly of landscapes and sunsets as anyone could tell from my Instagram. But this year I’d like to try a professional side of it, and to do that I need a better and more expensive camera. This of course would also be helpful while creating short films, so that’s definitely a must have.

8. Possibly start a business – This may be anΒ aspiration too far, but I guess it will be a trial and error process. I plan to be more creative and because I love quotes so much I thought I’d try combine the two in some way. We will have to see though.

9.Be a better person – Last year I don’t think I personally tried as hard as I could have to be a good person. So this year I plan to try harder to see and speak to people I rarely see, to be kinder if people require help even if they don’t ask, and to just overall be more appreciative of the friends and family I have around me.

10. Find my way – This is the biggest one this year. I really don’t know what I want to do in life career wise. So I’m going to try everything that takes my interest. I won’t be following any specific paths…more taking opportunities that appear. Letting the wind blow me in any direction in other words. And I can honestly say that I’m excited for that. Trying new things, even revisiting past career options. Saying that…I know I may not find it this year, but I’ll try keep up hope.

That’s my main plans anyway, as well as just living life a bit better and more fuller. Maybe I’ll look over this post in a years time and see what I actually accomplished…

If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. – William J. Clinton
