New Years Resolutions – What’s yours?


Hello Everyone!

I hope all of our readers had a great christmas! and was spent with your loved ones cozied up by the christmas tree and eating that huge christmas dinner! mmm yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m off to America to see Trevor in January! So prepare yourselves for blogs/pictures of the chilly yet pretty state – Michigan!ย 

So let’s talk Resolutions! Do you do it? Do you believe in a new year new start? New resolutions? same resolutions?

I know a lot of people who do it, you get the obvious and most popular which always seems to be number 1 – Lose weight. Which is true, that is my priority number 1 for 2017, but I do have some others, I know some people who believe in just following one resolution for the whole year so you get better focus at achieving it. I want to know if you guys get involved with resolutions, let me know what your’s are before 2017 and maybe we can all chip in to give each other some tips or whatever it may be to help us get on our way.

Below I’m going to list some of my resolutions for 2017, I’m sure I’ll be adding more to my notebook in the lead up to new year, perhaps little ones rather than a lot of big ones as I think it’s always best to focus on a few throughout the year as too many could get rather confusing and sometimes.. not so fun.


So let’s get started!

1. Lose weight – I do eat quite healthy already, but like most of us I do enjoy a tasty treat one too often, we just had Christmas right? I want to start exercising/working out more and exploring the different things my body can do and putting myself to the test. I’m not quite set on a goal weight just yet, but I think I’ll see where I get too. It’s about pushing myself further, sometimes if I get out of breathe Iโ€™ll stop, so I want to push myself further but also remembering to have fun with it all too. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. I find myself saying no a lot – When I think about certain things I’ll be well up for it! But when it comes to it sometimes I can say no or during something Iโ€™ll say no. I want to push myself further, remembering things are okay to be scared off or nervous about but at the same time it’s good to push past your fears and give it a go and if you really don’t like it then you never have to do it again.

3. Drink more water – I’ll admit, I detest water, something about it and I’ve never been too sure. I think it’s because it’s too plain. I work a lot too and I’m always on the go, so finding the time to stop and drink can be a little tricky, but it is something I’ve managed to put into place at work over the past few months. I’ve tried everything from adding squash to sometimes only drinking tea because that’s the only way I’ll drink it. I will admit however I am getting better at drinking water, but I do need to sustain this.

I think those are the main Top 3 for now.. However I do have a few little things lined up if I have time I’d like to focus on.

  • Photography – Recently taken to taking pictures for my blogs, really is fun, so I’d like to take some more time taking pictures of things I haven’t been able to capture yet. (I am off to America to see Trevor, so I would love to take some pictures of his beautiful town/state).
  • Outdoor/Winter activities –ย In England we hardly get snow and if we ever do, pretty much everything and everyone shuts down and I’ve never had a chance to experience colder weather and get involved in something different as winter sports so as I’m off to Michigan in January, I’ll be there for the Winter season, so this will give me a great opportunity to experience there snowmobiling, ice skating, skiing, hunting etc. I’m very excited.
  • Blogging – I’ve got this now haha.ย 2016 I started blogging as a little something to do when I have extra time between work and I really enjoy it!ย I can’t wait to continue! I have many blog ideas lined up and how to work on bettering the blog site itself. Very exciting.


So there you have it! My 2017 Resolutions. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t wait to give each one my best shot.

Let me know in the comments below your Top 3ย resolutions for 2017.

Love Jess x

    These are fantastic goals. I have started a daily work out routine I love and have already shed some pounds. I like flavored waters and herbal tea. I’m going to make my own flavored waters this year. Blogging is fun, isn’t it? I’m working on my photography skills. I hope you have a successful year. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Ahh congratulations to you! Don’t stop, keep going! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also doing quite well ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not such a fan of flavoured water but as you probably read I’m quite fussy with water as it is haha, but I am doing good on it so far. ๐Ÿ™‚ yes! Oh my how I keep away from It, I just love snapping away at things I see. I’ll be sure to keep an eye on your blog in the future ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  4. I can totally relate to number 2…I will make plans with someone and then when it comes down to it be like ahhhh no, never mind. Or for something scary too…lol pushing yourself is so needed!

    • TrevnJess says:
