Sorry I haven’t posted in a week. I had four days off at Christmas so I put a lot of work into my blog and got quite a few post up for you guys. And then on the early morning of the 28th we were off to Banff for snowboarding and New Years! Hence my lack of posts at the very end of December and thus far into January. You will hear all about the trip in many upcoming posts!
Now I know I am a bit late because it is January 4th and all, but when it was New Years Day I did have my resolutions all in my head! So I thought I would share them with you guys and maybe it will inspire one of you if you haven’t made any yet!
I don’t typically set hundreds of resolutions like some people, but I set a few just so I have something to work towards. Also, this year I decided to set goals to help me achieve these larger resolutions. I usually get too overwhelmed with all these resolutions floating around in my head that by February I push them all aside. So this year I will be trying something new!
1st resolution: Eat more veggies! I will achieve this by at least having one serving of vegetables with lunch and dinner. Also by eating more salads. I never was a huge salad person, but recently we have found a few really good bag mixes of salads, so I will try o eat salad twice a week! Maybe order salad instead of fries when we go out to eat…but that might be pushing it 😉
2nd resolution: Make more time for my blog! The last few months I was so overwhelmed with work and just adult things in life that I would set aside a couple hours on one day a week, usually Sundays, to bust out blog posts and edit pictures. Now, since I am not working so much I am going to schedule in blog hours throughout the week so it does not seem so daunting every Sunday! I really enjoy making posts however, when I have no time it is just another things that stresses me out. So this year that will change!
3rd resolution: Listen to the news more! Either by watching it or reading about what is going on in the world. I always made the excuse that I am too young and its so boring, but I am really going to make an effort to keep updated on current events.
4th resolution: Go on 1 or 2 good trips! My boyfriend and I are usually pretty good about planning trips and saving up for them so I think we will be able to crush this resolution! We set aside money every month into a separate “trip account”, which allows us to go on a trip and not have to worry about dipping into our other savings! It is a good technique that you should try out if you love to travel but need to stay on budget 🙂
I feel like 2018 should be a good year, because parts of 2017 were a struggle and a hard grind to keep going, but in the end it worked out alright. This year, I think will be better. Maybe some new opportunities will arise, going on more adventures, finding a better apartment! Who knows! The possibilities are endless. I am trying to keep positive vibes because my real adult life has only just started. I am so young and have so much time to figure life out..even though I don’t even think most older adults have it all figured out! haha
Taking it one small goal at a time is my moto this year!
Let me know in the comments below if you guys have any resolutions or goals for 2018! Oh and also, my next post will be back to normal with loads of pictures from my Banff trip! We visited a couple other little places and I am so excited to share it with all of you! 🙂
