Hello 2017! January is here but to be honest, it’s taken me awhile to shake off December. I reluctantly took down the Christmas tree and I stocked up on mince pies and Christmas pudding as soon as Boxing Day hit. Because you know, I really like those things but also because who am I to resist the specials!?
I’m trying to find some routine to my life again, I’ve joined a gym which is literally just down the road from my house and I’ve been starting to run again which has been really good. I used to run a lot and I didn’t realise how much I missed it! The weather has finally picked up too, as in, it actually feels like summer now.
I went to the beach on the weekend, which I don’t do too often and it was…perfect. Growing up, I never really went to the beach. I realise now how much I like it. I hope I get to go there a few more times this summer. That and drink as much iced coffee that I can get my hands on!
I hope the start of your 2017 has been a good one so far!
Disregard everything; I was wrong, I was mistaken, I was a fool. I didn’t know what I know now, how could I have known? I was drowning and I didn’t even realise it. But out of the depths, I have conquered. I am free.
And I have never felt more free or been more happy.
Happy 2016! I hope you’re all enjoying the hot weather. To be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with it, but only because my two-storey unit doesn’t have air conditioning and I’m getting kind of sick of sleeping on the couch downstairs… Other than that, I’ve been loving spending warm weekends in the backyard – other people’s that is – and drinking cold apple cider after a hard week at work.
This month I’m hoping to get back on track in a few different areas, basically every area of my life. Is it achievable to set such high goals for oneself a mere four days after New Years? Not really. But I figure, what better time of year to set them. When else are they going to get done? I always feel extra motivated in January, fresh page, clean slate, you know what I mean?
In the meantime, I’ll keep looking at these beautiful images of sun kissed skin, flat tummies and beaches to keep me remembering my goals.
What are your plans this January?
Wow, I cannot believe how fast this month has gone. I’ve literally been planning this post since early November and I’ve been counting down the days until Christmas since October…
Winter has really gotten to me this year; it’s time to snap out of it and put my game face on.
