New Years Resolutions / Goals 2019

2018 was a strange year. I had a lot of highs and lows but in the end, I made it through a better person than the year before.

I’ve put together a list of goals/resolutions for 2019 and I hope to achieve all of them.

  • Participate in 2 or more charity events

I participated in the 5km bubble rush for charity last year and it was so amazing. I had so much fun, it was really hard but so fulfilling. I hope to do that one again this year and at least one other event. If anyone knows of any cool charity events I’d love to know!

 

  • Lose 40 pounds and exercise more

I’ve managed to lose 20 pounds at the end of the year and am trying to be better with what I eat and about getting my steps in. I really like running and yoga as well so I want to try and do these a few times a week.

I have a Fitbit and I love it so if you want to be friends then my Fitbit username is KBChaos. 🙂

 

  • Work on ways to monetize my blog

I’ve worked on learning more about blogging and doing it more often. I now want to take the time to monetize and utilise my blog in the best way I can. If anyone has any links to guides they’ve posted then that would be great!

 

  • Post to Instagram 184 times

This is just over half the amount of days in the year. I find it so hard to gain any followers on Instagram so I now want to focus on posting and engagement.

 

  • 30 or more blog posts for the year

I’m so into blogging again and I can’t wait to share all the ideas I have! I want to try and post 3 times a month if possible and maybe more. I’m really looking forward to it!

 

  • Drink 2 litres of water or more a day

This one is pretty obvious. I struggle with kidney issues and am hoping drinking more water will lessen these and make me feel so much better.

 

  • Save any extra income for my wishlist and bigger items

I’ve taken a look recently at the bigger items I want to save up for and this would be a good motivator for working on my side business ideas. Keep an eye out for my wishlist posts later.

 

  • Cook more

I will be the first to admit that I don’t cook ever. I really don’t cook from scratch at all either. My younger sister was kind enough to gift me a slow cooker, therefore, I want to start using that to prepare things for when I’m home. I’m actually really excited. Recipes, please.

 

  • Start making candles again

I have a big love for candles, especially peppermint scented ones. I bought a kit a few years ago to make the candles and I found it again when I moved into my place and really want to do it again.

 

  • Plan a week in advance

I leave a lot of what I do to the last minute and it really stresses me out. 🙈 I have all the tools I need to manage my time and I’m just not utilising them. I’ve got a cute diary and a cool app that actually helps me so I’m going to try and get ahead.

 

  • Leave the country

My passport is one of the most redundant things I own at the moment. I really want to travel and America is one of the places that is top on my list. I want to try and fund my trip through side businesses and overtime at work so I can enjoy it. This year will be the year! 💖

So there we have it. I have a lot of plans for this year and I can’t wait to see what it brings. I’ll be doing updates whenever I significantly check off one of the goals. What are your resolutions for this year?

  1. Wow! You are ambitious! You can do it. I see how many of your goals work together well, like doing a charity walk/run and losing weight! The slow cooker is great for those of us that don’t love to cook. Pinterest is great for recipes! Have a great year!
