Hello 2015!


Happy New Year everyone!
I hope 2015 is a happy and healthy year for you and you all had a good night last night – whatever you got up to.
I’ve had a look back at my Instagram feed to find my favourite memories of the past year and it was difficult narrowing it down as I’d done so much.

My 24th birthday ~ Valentine’s Day meal ~ City break to Berlin ~ My best friend leaving work ~ Cambridge away ~ Winning a trip to Barcelona through work ~ lots and lots of afternoon tea ~ Lincoln away road trip ~ Going to Colchester Zoo Zoo Zoo ~ Treating my daddy to a pub lunch for his birthday ~ Treating my mum to a pub lunch for her birthday ~ Parchal, Portugal ~ Work awards night (not being as drunk as the previous one!) ~ Meeting Mariah for cocktails at Westfield ~ Anniversary in London and seeing Matilda ~ Educational to the Canaries and meeting some great girls ~ A long wintry weekend in Bruges ~ Changing hair colour (back to dark baby) ~ Work Christmas party ~ Standard Waldon family Christmas at home
Also looking back at the last year, I have to mention how I got on with my resolutions:
·         Make more of an effort to keep in contact with old friends – whether it’s texting, calling or arranging to meet up
I definitely tried my hardest with this one but didn’t manage to meet up with two of my oldest friends, due to work and other commitments. I also contacted a number of people from Uni for a catch up but a couple of times I got no response, so eventually gave up. I’ve made some new friends though in 2014, which is a bonus!
·         Exercise more (at least three times a week) and as soon as the weather is better, start swimming again – or find a running/walking buddy
This one probably went the worst. Swimming never happened. I never got a walking or running buddy. I’ve got plenty of DVDs I can do at home, but I get home from work at half 6 so most of the time, I can’t be bothered. Must try harder. Gonna start Blogilates in my room again.
·         Snack healthy at work – no more sitting around eating crap
I’m pleased to say, this was a walk in the park! Up until the last couple of weeks when there was so much ‘Christmas’ food, I snacked on fruit, vegetables, nuts and the like. I stuck to soup or salad for lunch too.
And now for the coming year, I only have two resolutions. I came across my ’30 before I’m 30’ list so will be concentrating on that, as in a fortnight I’ll be halfway to 30 – eek! But here’s what I’d like to achieve and they’re both linked:
1) Get back to my post-uni weight (believe it or not, I was slimmer then – I used to eat so well)
2) Have a sugar detox... after reading I Quit Sugar, I’d love to give it a go and there’s a programme to keep me on track!
Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?
