10 New Year's Resolutions I am Desperate to Keep!

New year’s resolutions... do you love them or hate them? I for one have never been much of a fan in the past, I feel like people set unattainable standards for themselves or try too much drastic change too quickly that by the time February has rolled around they’ve burnt themselves out and splurge and break resolutions. (If you're not into resolutions I would recommend Lily Pebbles blog post  about how this year she isn't doing resolutions because she is happy as she is!)

BUT this year am I giving it a go, because slowly but surely I want to improve myself this year perhaps because I’m turning 25 and freaking out slightly that time is passing me by and I can’t rely on my youth alone... and I kinda thought now is a good a time as any.

SO here are my goals that I have started working on for Work/Travel/Life for 2018.


1. I am determined to post consistently on this blog and to see where things take me, I already have a weekly schedule planned out with a ton of things I want to talk about, covering lifestyle, beauty, travel, and causes I’m passionate about.
My real 9-5 life isn’t a huge concern for me right now as my main focus is travel, I am happy with my ‘real’ job right now I am progressing well and  my current temp gig ends in April and this is when we go and travel work free for a few months which means I can focus more of that time on this blog. Yay!


2. The road trip: Rich and I have a HUGE three-month trip planned starting at the end of April through until July. The goal is to see as much of New Zealand as possible and document every moment.

3. We often film our outings but I don’t tend to do much with the footage so I want to start uploading these to Youtube with the goal being to document my life for me and my family/friends... I’m not too bothered if these get any views as such I just can’t wait to watch it all back when I’m older!


4. As I mentioned at the beginning of this post I really want this to be the year of self-improvement. I’ve started some of these towards the end of December to try and get me into the swing of things but by this time next year I would ideally like to lose 14lbs by doing the following:
5. Drink 1.5 litres of water every day
6. Cut down on the diet drink addiction!!
7. Walk to work
8. Get back to the gym 2-3 times a week,
9. Wake up earlier
10. Stop getting Ubers home from work!

I am the worst at sticking to new year's resolutions as are most people say they are but I think this year I’ve set myself some pretty attainable goals and hopefully by putting my intentions out there in the world I might feel a little more accountable... I might even schedule a blog post in a few months telling you how I’m getting along with my resolutions!?

What are your goals for 2018? I’d love to read them and maybe pinch some ideas or do you hate the idea of new year's resolutions? Let me know in the comments below
