Over the past few years I have put my self care to the back of my mind and I let everything else come first. My dogs are a huge part of my life and they always come before me, my relationship came before me and as you can imagine the list goes on. In the new year I had a change of mind, I noticed in January how I wasn't happy with how I treated myself and I knew this had to change. So 2017 is all about feeling me again and I wanted to share with you my resolutions for this and it would help remind myself what my goal is.
This year I have managed to sort out my diet, it is all about moderation and still enjoying what you eat. I have made small changes in my diet, not eating as much chocolate has made a big impact already. I feel so much more confident in myself and I want to continue the road by joining a gym and walking/ running with my dogs. Em Sheldon blog is a huge inspiration to me, her body is goals. This is going to be a work in progress and I want to look back in a years time and be proud of myself. I want to fill my body with food that makes me feel good with the odd treat.
Prioritise things that bring me joy
I want to work on the things that make me happy, such as my dogs and my blog. I have taken a step back from my blog recently to get my head into order and I feel it has been a necessary break to really understand where I want to take my blog next. Over the last five years all I thought about was my next blog post, taking this time out has made me realise I need to really focus on the right content. Moving forward I want to incorporate my goals such as joining the gym and sharing this on my blog. My blog is my rock and it brings out my creative side which helps my mind.
prioritising what makes me happy is really important this year, I don't care what everyone else has to say because if it makes me happy so what. I lived my life in a bubble the past few years, it is time for a change and a new me.
I need to get rid of so many things that are all over the house, I need my surroundings to be tidy so that I can think and it really helps my attitude towards the day ahead. I'm not going to go into detail why I have decided to look after me and why I feel I need to be selfish this year but its helping me change so any heartache I'm going through is pushing me to be a better person. Who knows how long it would have taken otherwise, so I am seeing most things as a positive and moving forward.
Recently you may have realised I end up taking more selfies or snap chatting away but for me I am just trying to be more confident and it seems to work. I want to document when I feel good so that when I have a bad day I can look back and see I am strong and that its just one day I feel awful. Losing the weight I hate is helping by documenting when I feel good and the stages it is taking. So when I feel like giving up I can remind myself how far I have come already.
In 2017 I want to learn more and progress at work, it is something I am really interested in. I want to go on adventures and laugh with people I love. Over the past year or so all Ive done is live in a bubble and I hid away from the world. This year I want to really enjoy my 20s and try new things.
