My New Year Goals 2016

First of all, Happy New Year! Hope you had a great NYE whatever you were doing!

Happy New Year 2016

I haven’t made any New Years Resolutions as such but this is a great time to take stock and think about things I’d like to achieve and do in the coming year.

I think the New Year brings the feeling that there’s a fresh, clean slate to be written on. A renewed positivity that we can achieve our goals and brand new hopes and dreams fill the air!

So, although not goals I have to achieve…. here are some of things I’d like to implement in 2016..

1. Eating Healthy

This is something I’ve tried to introduce seriously into my life a few times unsuccessfully, so I really want to crack it this year. Not just myself but my whole family. It means I need to find a whole new way of cooking, using new ingredients and cutting out the bad stuff! Of course I’m not going to be anal about this, as I think that would be unrealistic but there will definitely be some changes, especially where my own diet is concerned. Drinking more water and attempting some serious juicing are also included in this one!

2. Get Fit

Like above, I keep trying this but give up. I know it’s only going to get worse from now on… my body that is… ha, so I do really need to put more effort in! I want to investigate all things anti-ageing too…. I’m not getting any younger you know!

3. De-Clutter

Again, I had good intentions last year but got lazy. My house needs a mammoth clear out and I intend to be ruthless. I want to try and make a few quid with most of our (still in great condition) cast offs so ebay and carboot sales here I come!

4. Stop procrastinating

Seriously need to sort this out. Big time!

5. Visit more places

I’m far from an outdoorsey person but I do think the kids get an awful lot of out of being outside and going somewhere new. I’d like to visit places with them that I haven’t been to before, starting with local areas but hopefully some further afield. Considering our Country is such a small one, I haven’t seen that much of it at all!

Work wise I’m happy with the way things are right now. I enjoy my little part time job a couple of days a week… I may take on more hours but no immediate plans for that. I would like to blog more, but again we’ll have to see how I’m fixed time wise…. family time has to come first 🙂

That’s probably about it really. I believe that’s enough to be getting on with for now anyway!

  1. I think so too – I think your plans sound really good and also realistic, which means hopefully they will happen! We love going on days out with the kids, so hope to be reading about them soon…..

  2. A good solid list here my lovely, best of luck with it all x

  3. Ohhhh good luck! I’ve been decluttering since Xmas, feels great!

  4. Happy new year to you and best wishes. I hope you achieve the goals on your list.xx
    I find i enjoy cooking more if i treat myself to a new cooking dish! Especially something fancy x

  5. Mine are exactly the same thing. Hope this year is good for you and you stop procrastinating and get out more. Happy new year x

  6. Ours are very similar to yours. My decluttering starts this weekend. Whoop. Happy New Year

  7. I am loving all these New year posts – I think mine would sound pretty similar to yours. Procrastination is my worst one! Have a fabulous year and hope you get everything you ever dreamed of! x

  8. Best of luck with these. I think the start of a new year is always a good time to reflect but not too specific as it can be hard to keep to everything! This a great list though.

  9. Happy New Year and good luck with your goals, mine are almost identical… I am constantly decluttering lol x

  10. I have very similar goals too (especially number 4!!!). Good luck with them all x

  11. Happy 2016 and good luck with your list. I find it easier to eat healthily when I’m in charge of the cooking so I hope you get chance to spend more time in the kitchen this year – if that’s your aim! All the best!

  12. Every year i say am going to loose weight and it always creeps back on again. Exploring the country is one that I am very much with you on though!

  13. I like the getting outdoors bit, My husband has been really proactive in helping with the healthier eating. Best of luck.

  14. Good luck with your goals – I am really going to try and get a bit fitter and a bit healthier this year (although I fear I say that every year!!)

  15. Great list of goals, best of luck with them!! I’ve started de-cluttering and it feels fantastic, think I’m going to do a monthly check in on how I’m getting on with mine. x

Please leave a comment... I try to reply to each and every one :)
