Mid year resolutions some important life changes

New Year’s resolutions – rarely have they actually been seen through but I love thinking about them mid-year. I never promise myself come January as I think it adds too much pressure. However a few months later I Take some time to reflect on the past, the good, the bad and the ugly. Positively plan my year ahead, getting excited about what’s to come and thinking about to how to enjoy it to the full. Getting my priorities in order. What’s important to me, and what has been taking up too much energy and not giving anything back. Is there anything I have missed, anything I have been wanting to do, anything I would like to achieve!

Exercise Routine

I want to be one of those people who love exercise but I’m not! It’s not necessarily laziness its lack of motivation and the ability to persevere. I want to make it part of my everyday life & if that means building up daily endurance then that’s what I’ll do! Michael came home with a rather impressive exercise bike & once I’d got over the thoughts racing through mind “He’s trying to tell your fat” I thought about it & as much as it hurts he’s right (Not saying he’d ever think or say that, he’s too kind) it’s true I’m overweight & with two children it’s selfish not to be the best version of myself.

Take it easy on myself

With that being said above in regards to exercise I need to lay off myself – be kinder to myself. Stop thinking horrible things & upsetting myself. Take it slow and remembering that life is not a race. It’s more than possible to get into shape – It’s certainly not impossible!

It’s a slow process but quitting won’t speed it up!

Creating a new family home

This year will hopefully see us in our own home and I’m so excited to decorate it, putting our family stamp on it. It’s horrible living in a rented property knowing this is not yours, our landlord has been amazing and allows us to decorate however why spend money unnecessarily improving somebody else’s house? I’m trying to be patient however my Pinterest home interior board is getting crazy full!

Friendships

I’m a shit friend! Not in a way where I will double cross you or throw you under the bus but I will forget to return calls & texts. I will cancel last minute to planned nights out and I will vacate the friendsphere and retreat into my own bubble. My friends are incredibly special to me and I want to pay more attention to our relationships.

Love my partner even more

We are each other’s best friend and worst enemy! We can clash but we love each other very much. We’ve been dealt some shit storms and had our fair share of highs and lows during our relationship. He’s my best friend in the whole world and I love him very much I want him to know that. Remembering why we love each other, all the good times we have and laughs we share.

    I love this! Taking a good look at your life mid-year is so helpful. We all start off with great intentions in January but they rarely last. I love how you’ve broken your life into sections so as not to feel overwhelmed. Inspirational x
