New Year’s Resolutions
January 3, 2012
So another year begins and, although I don’t really believe in making resolutions (who can give anything up for an entire year?!), according to the Mayan calendar this year will be our last so may as well jot a few down with the hope of leading a more fulfilling year which will supposedly end them all.
So, here are my 2012 resolutions:
1) Blog more often
This one should be the easiest as I have been slack to say the least at keeping Girls Wishlist updated of late. I LOVE both online shopping and online marketing, of which blogging is one of my favourite aspects, but in the last few months life seems to have got in the way and GW has been seriously neglected so fingers crossed this one will be my favourite and easiest to achieve.
2) Run more
I really do enjoy running, if you’re not a fellow jogger you’re probably wondering what on earth could be fun about pounding the pavements for miles on end, but for me it is time to clear your head, listen to some good tunes and decide what delicious treats to indulge in afterwards in order to make up for lost calories… I guess it’s the elusive ‘me time’ that everyone craves but no-one gets enough of, so more running will be on the agenda… but only in the warmer months, I’m not entirely crazy! And what better time to think about exercise than when the Sweaty Betty sale has begun… well you have to look the part, right?!
Who knows, I might run so much more this year that I even sign up for the London Marathon 2013 before the year is out, and anyway, if the Mayan calendar is to be believed I won’t actually have to run it anyway!
3) Eat less sweets
My sweet tooth seems to be getting worse as the years go on and it’s getting beyond a joke. At first I thought I was just doing my bit for charity providing the office charity box £1 each time I indulged in a packet of delicious sugary snacks, but now I’m thinking that it would probably be better to contribute to a worthy charity without feeling the need to scoff a bag of sweets every time, I mean with 8-10 bags of sweets each week my teeth might not last until I’m 30 (and 29 is FAST approaching!)
Even while typing about cutting back on my biggest vice I’m dreaming of sweeeets, mmmm, how good does this retro sweet box look?!
Sorry, I digress…
4) Less shopping
Hahaha, who am I trying to kid?! I think 3 is quite enough for one year.
