Did I do it?
I always think New Year is a great time to reflect on everything that has happened in 2016 - and my oh my hasn't a lot happened! I started the year with some very clear goals, [check out my 2016 New Year resolution post here]. Some have been easy and some have been super hard - Actually looking back, most of them have been pretty hard but that's part of the fun right?
So did I do it? The quick answer is yes and no, but here is the long answer. My first goal of giving up sugar started well, but slowly throughout the year, I must admit, I have slipped. However, I have learnt a lot from going through this process, particularly how much sugar is in things and just generally being more aware. Also I have definitely cut my consumption down - does anyone have any tips on cutting it completely?
One of my biggest achievements this year has been getting my job, and not just any job, a job I enjoy [most of the time!!] I started the year a little bit down hearted with the whole job search but it just proved to me that good things are worth waiting for! On the other end of the spectrum, unfortunately I haven't managed to complete another half marathon, I just keep putting it off but it is something that I definitely want to do some day!
This year, I am trying to have a different approach to 2017, I am not setting any resolutions but going to grab life by the [insert word] and take as many opportunities as I can. Because at the end of the day, everything will always work out, so what's to lose?
Sorry for the late post, I saw in the New Year in Rome so couldn't get it up before [there will be a post about my New Year in Rome coming soon, so keep a look out!]
... And of course, Happy New Year!
