My New Year’s Resolutions

 A new year, a new start. While New Year’s resolutions may be cliché, I think it is refreshing to realize your goals, put them down on paper and start holding yourself accountable to them. The goals and resolutions need to be measurable and attainable, so I am going to try to stay away from vague statements by backing them up with real objectives, so, here it goes:

Live a healthier life (I know, so original hey!)

  • Work out a minimum of 2-3 times per week
  • Start everyday with a large glass of cold water
  • Replace juice, energy drinks and pop with water (and lemon if flavour needed)
  • Eat at least 5 salads per week (try for spinach)
  • Take my iron and vitamins daily
  • No more than 2 alcoholic drinks in total on weeknights
  • Make sure teeth are always white (stupid coffee and red wine!)
  • Get out of the house more often!

Put more effort into my appearance

  • Wear heels more often (let’s say at least 2 days per week minimum)
  • Wear dresses and skirts more often (let’s say at least 2 days per week minimum)
  • Do my hair, cannot wear it just strait or in a pony more than 3 times per week
  • Get regular haircuts (every 6-8 weeks)
  • Do a hair mask at least once per week
  • Try to maintain a manicure and pedicure
  • Try to maintain brow shaping/tinting

Spend less money

  • Eat out breakfast and lunch less on workdays
  • Shop less
  • Buy less liquor
  • Grocery shop more wisely
  • Buy less unnecessary groupons
