2017 Goals


Ayyyyy, guess who’s doing a typical New Year post nearly four months late. Yep, that’s right. I am. So basically, I was thinking about it the other day and I thought, well if I put it in a blog post for the big wide world to see it may actually motivate me to do it rather than ending up being further in debt, fatter and a bigger mess for 2018. Fingers crossed.


  1. Be Debt Free. I can’t lie, this is top of the list. I’m not in a whole world of debt but it is going to take a bit of hard work to clear it off so this is my number one aim this year ready for saving for a house and hopefully buying next year with Maxy (eeek!). I’m literally just going to plough all of my money into paying it back and hope for the best. Fingers crossed.

 

  1. Work towards saving to buy a house. Yeah, as mentioned above Max and I are pretty much ready to move out now and we cannot wait. We lived together before and there is only so long you can have sleepovers before going bloody psycho. I cannot wait to wake up every morning to that beautiful face so I am going to get saving and then next year we will be house hunting.

 

  1. Stay at 9 stone 10. I mean, I need to get there first but when I do, I don’t want to go above or below that weight. I am one of those people that doesn’t like being skinny, it makes my legs look like child’s legs and I don’t like it but on the other hand I need to stay a weight that is healthy for my body so I feel that this is probably as high as I can go without putting a strain on my heart and stuff, I want to live forever.

 

  1. Read more. I fucking love reading. Can’t get enough of it. The problem I have is I will forget about a book and not pick one up for six months. When I get into it I can go through several books a month and I love it. I feel so much better for reading a good book mentally, I feel clearer and more accomplished and I usually find if I have my head stuck in a book I am not worried about my life turning into a burning heap of shit so what more could I want.

 

  1. Stop drinking the vino. I love wine. I love the taste, the smell, the variety, the drunkenness, the list goes on. I am a massive red wine fan but I find it so hard to just have one glass. My goal is to only drink one bottle of wine a month which is a big cut back as I can drink in excess of one bottle a week (note that I am not telling you how many bottles, I don’t dare admit it, don’t judge me), I will still drink on occasions as a treat but I want to stop buying a bottle of wine because Monday, or because I had a bad day at work, or just because I deserve it because I don’t so my new theory is one bottle a month unless I complete a marathon, then I really will deserve it.

 

  1. Finally fall into a blogging schedule. I know how shit I am at this, horrendous but I can’t help it. I feel like my writing ability depends completely on my state of mind, if I am having a bad mental health day then I can’t write and the good mental health days have been few and far between recently but I am good and I am back. For how long I don’t know but I plan to get ahead so I have something to publish even if I do feel like a pile of poo.

 

  1. Reach goals at work. I am really determined at the moment to reach my goals at work and grow as an employee. As much as I don’t have an amazing job as such, I do love it and that’s all that matters. In 2018 I want to smash my work goals into little tiny shards of nothingness.

 

  1. Stop spending money on unnecessary shit. HAHAHAHAHA. I don’t really have much to say about this one apart from it’s a farfetched goal. I bloody love buying stuff that I don’t need, because I might need it one day, it’s a good price or its adorable. I am the worst person for this. I really cannot help myself so I am going to try my hardest to reign myself in this year.

 

  1. Build a decent work wardrobe (or just a decent wardrobe altogether). I am so guilty of find a piece I love, wearing the shit out of it and then getting sick of it/ruining it in the process. It fucking sucks. I need a decent work wardrobe and hopefully if I achieve goal number 3 I won’t have to keep buying bigger trousers (also helped out by not drinking like on point 5). I really feel like I need to pay attention to my work wardrobe because I wear it all the time because I am ALWAYS BLOODY WORKING, not that I don’t love it but seriously, I wear it all the time. I need to invest. I am thinking of buying myself a new dress every time I stop myself from having a takeaway but I can’t do that

 

  1. Conquer anxiety forever. Ok, bit farfetched, maybe just get it under control however if it gets to Xmas 2017 and I have another panic attack on blooming Christmas Day I will be thoroughly PISSED!! I am starting CBT which I cannot wait for! I have been on the NHS waiting list forever so I have found a different route to get the treatment which I am so thankful for! Roll on finding out my start date.
