2013 will be the year I... (and an update on 2012).

1.1.13

♥ Join a club

♥ Reach my all time goal weight (even if I don't stay there very long..)

♥ Get photos printed and put into albums

♥ Remember birthdays earlier than the day before (i.e. be more organised)

♥ Try something new career-wise

♥ Visit my sister and brother in law on the Isle of Man

♥ See more of my parents

♥ Take better photos

(all from www.weheartit.com)

I did okay with my resolutions set for 2012. I started to use eye cream like I said I would (an Origins one to be precise). 

I learnt how to do nothing and take a bit of time out to have a nice bubble bath or watch a film without giving myself a hard time that it was a "waste" of time. 

I learnt new things (decoupage) and had a really crafty year, making Christmas cards and presents. 

I slacked a little bit with my exercise but I took part in Race for Life like I wanted to and I'm hoping with the help of You Tube, my workout dvds and the fitness centre round the corner 2013 will be my fittest year yet!

I didn't learn to cook a roast but then again I became vegetarian in 2012 so cooking meat for other people wasn't top of my priorities. We have tried so many new recipes and found some firm favourites. Even Jonathan has cut down on meat which I didn't think would ever happen.

I don't think I'll ever figure out what I want to do career-wise (it seems to make it onto my resolutions every year!) but I think it's time for a change in 2013. Time to try something different.

How did you get on with your resolutions from 2012? Made any for this year?

  2. I did OK on last years resolutions- though I think I made too many to realistically stick to all of them!

    I've decided not to make any real ones this year, though I'm going to try harder with all that I already do xx

  3. I definitely want to make 2013 my fittest year yet, I started running in 2011 and didn't make as much progress as I'd have liked to in 2012 but at least I didn't give up! Good luck with all your goals. x

  5. Mine is to be more organised. Think it's because I have to be super organised at work so I let it slip at home. I bought a diary & address book to help!
    Happy new year :)

  7. Happy New Year :)

    I have so many things I would like to achieve this year, some very similar to your own :) Hopefully all are reasonable enough for me to manage. How did you go about starting to lose weight before? I remember reading a post a good while back, It's time I gave it a go!

  8. I totally need to learn to do nothing, I always feel like I have to be doing something which is making me a very stressed little person right now.

    Anyway - all the best for the new year!

  9. Good luck with your resolutions for 2013! I love the feeling of a clean slate and a fresh start a new year brings (because frankly, there isn't much to look forward to in January and February anyway).

  15. Mine is definitely to lose weight! I've put on two stone this year and am far from happy with how I look. Reading some of your fitness posts and healthy recipes has inspired me to buy a blender for my house so I can make my own smoothies. By far my favourite blog! <3

  16. Happy new year!!! I have to start printing out my photos. Back in the olden days, when film was all the rage, I used to fill photo albums all the time.

    Hope you have a wonderful 2013 xx

  17. Sounds like you did really well on your resolutions last year and I really like your ones for 2013. On the photos printed front I've just started getting photobooks printed (you can often get vouchers from Groupon etc) - I do them months at a time, like March - July 2012 and so on and they look really nice stacked on a bookshelf. Just an idea! xo
