Goals for 2015

January 4, 2015

2015 Goals CalendarWow. It feels pretty crazy writing 2015 already. I swear every year goes by faster and faster! So I thought I’d stop by to post a couple of my goals for the next year. Though I don’t usually tend to celebrate a new year or make new years resolutions, I do like the idea of setting myself little goals for the year, and then looking back at the end of it to see how much I managed to achieve.

  My main goal this year is to spend more quality time with family and friends. We had a great summer last year, and spent pretty much every night sitting outside together as a family just enjoying each others company laughing and joking until the sun went down. I want to do that again this year.

  Here comes the fitness goal! I really want to take up running! For the past couple months, Shane and I have started to really enjoy walking and try to complete at least 5-8k each weekend. I’d love for us to improve our fitness and turn that into running 5k!

  And my last goal is to travel more again. I loved last year with our trips to Iceland and Morocco, and I’d love to be able to visit another 2 new countries. My parents bought a caravan last year, so I can’t wait to go on more adventures around the UK with that too!

This isn’t really a ‘goal’ but I thought I’d mention it just now anyway. I want to be a little more sporadic with blog posts this year. Last year I put a little too much pressure on myself to blog a specific number of posts each week/month and got a little frustrated with myself when I didn’t meet that schedule, so this year, I’m only going to blog when I have something I want to blog about, and hopefully that’ll create some better content for everyone! 🙂

What are your goals or resolutions for this year? Have you got anything exciting planned?

    I think travelling is on everyone’s lists – what a dream!
    Good luck with your blog in 2015, I definitely think that the ‘sporadic posting’ idea is a good mindset to have – it makes blogging seem fun as opposed to a chore 🙂 X

    Love, Lucy

      I love nothing better than to explore a new country haha. It’s just trying to choose only one place to visit at a time. So hard!

    I want to run. I hate it and never do it, but I’ve always wanted to be a “runner”. If you figure out any great tips on becoming a runner just let me know haha.

      Haha, me too! I’m always sitting at my desk at work like ‘tonight will be the night I’ll go for a run/fast walk hah). Get home. ‘Nope. Maybe tomorrow!’ – I’m just too lazy to do anything but watch TV after getting home from work haha!

    I love that one of your goals is to spend more time with family–so simple yet so often overlooked in the whole fitness/eat healthier/read more books phase of new years resolutions. I love the way you describe your summer evenings with the family, it sounds so perfect and peaceful and its so important that we remind ourselves to make TIME for those moments instead of just taking them for granted. Good for you!

    My goals are an attempt at blogging, a steady journal, and (now) family quality time as well. Tried running. Failed 🙁

      Aww thank you for your lovely comment! 🙂 I love that you decided to add in family time to one of your goals – it was so amazing to just sit outside after work with each other, so I can’t wait to do it again – I miss it so much haha!
      So far, the running is just walking, but I’m so determined – I’ve wanted to ‘be a runner’ for so long, so I’m hoping this year is the year, though I just have to improve my fitness first 🙂
