Mid Year Resolutions.

writing lists

I've been feeling quite 'list-y' and this is one of the many lists I've made. I think it's unrealistic to make New Years resolutions and expect to keep them for a full year, and they do say it's better to start with smaller goals if you want to make them achievable. I'm trying to avoid the cliché resolutions, because 25 years in, it's getting pretty old. So here's my mid-year resolutions. I've got 6 months to make these happen, wish me luck!

1. Walk More  Recently, I've started leaving the car and walking to or from work each day (weather permitting of course). I was quite surprised/ashamed when I realised how much it tired me out, but I've noticed a huge difference and actually look forward to the quiet time every day. My resolution is to ditch the car whenever I can. The gym, exercise dvds, daily jogs resolutions have never stuck - this one's realistic and no where near as horrific as the 30 day shred. *shudder*

2. Shop My Wardrobe  We've finally started saving for our house deposit and it's been a shock to the system to say the least. It's made me realise how careless I can be with money, and how ridiculous it is to constantly claim I've 'nothing to wear' when I've a full wardrobe in my room. I'm challenging myself to find an outfit from my wardrobe, and save the money. Last night I bought a dress for a party on Saturday, and realised afterwards that it was totally unnecessary .. so tomorrow it's going back to the shop. Eilidh 1 Temptation 0. 

3.  Write More Lists  Everything works better when you're organised. Last week I went a bit list crazy. I planned every single meal for the week, and made a really specific shopping list. And our food bill was much lower because I was only buying what we need, and we had better dinners than normal too because we had all the right ingredients. I also planned when I'm writing each blog post, when I'm on twitter chats, when I'm cleaning the house, when I'm tidying. I've found that when I'm organised, I have so much more time. Obsessive list-writing is so under rated.

Are any of you making new resolutions? Let me know what yours are!

  3. Number 1 & 2 strike so much resonance with me! I definitely have waaay too many clothes and need to either get rid of them or wear them! And walking is definitely a must!

  4. I want to do more walking! When I'm at uni I walk every where so I get a lot done there, but not so much at home...
