new year, new me...?


Happy New Year, lovelies! We are one week into 2019 and so far so good.. .but isn't it always? Mid February is when I usually start to kick myself for not staying on track with my goals. Usually my new years resolutions consist of losing weight, working out, losing more weight, fit into a smaller size, and then lose some extra weight. It's all quite monotonous really, and I'm no longer interested in that. I'm choosing to be kinder to myself. It's exhausting to always find something to pick at. Why are we our worst critics? This year, I've decided to focus on more positive things.

Be less wasteful. We're bad at leftovers. We're even bad at actually cooking all the healthy stuff I buy and plan on making. The reality is that Uber Eats makes life too easy while simultaneously destroying our insdes and dwindling our bank account. So we've had to switch things up a bit to make sure we eat all the food in the fridge. One tip that's been helping a lot is having pita wraps around to stuff leftover meat and/or veggies, put some hummus or some salad dressing and voila. Another is cutting up veggies in bulk and storing them in the fridge so that they are easy to pull out to cook or  easy to throw on a plate with a protein. So no more food in the bin, because that's just a disgusting privilege no one should have!

Be more mindful of what goes into my body. Instead of focusing on the scale, which really doesn't reflect what's going on inside, I'm focusing on what I'm feeding my body. I have a weak, weak spot for ginger ale; I could have it five times a day if I had a 2L in my fridge. I also have an insane sweet tooth. I don't like chocolate very much, but any type of candy has me wrapped around its finger. So reducing those two things is going to be difficult, it's already proven to be, but I will continue to do my best. Even beyond refined sugar, there are so many questionable ingredients in all the food we consume. Cooking at home with fresh, local and organic ingredients is something I can control. There's really no going back on this commitment.

Be more present. We live in a world today where it's really hard to unplug from all the screens in our lives. We're always checking up on something online or capturing what we're doing for the gram. Putting my phone down and being more present in the moment is a priority. Since it really is a serious addiction, I'm starting with small steps like keeping my phone at a walking distance when home with Julien and reading a book in bed instead of scrolling through Instagram.

Get shit done now. I remember hearing about this book or method a few months back, about not putting off things that take five to ten minutes. So whether the dishes need to get done, or putting laundry away, returning a call, getting gas, etc., if it takes you less than ten minutes, simply do it then and get it over with. It's so easy to get overwhelmed at the end of a long day or on Saturday morning when it's time to clean the house. Things go so much quicker and you get more time to relax. Ahh... relaxation. We can't always be relaxed but I don't know anyone who needs extra stress in their day to day life.

Those are the four major ones for me. I'd love to know what some of you resolutions are! Also, please remember that the new year is fresh time to start new commitments and journeys, but any given day, any given moment is a great time to start as well!

Hello! I'm so happy to have found your blog (and IG). I believe we are a very similar height and body shape, so I love seeing the looks you are choosing.

My resolution is to eat dark, leafy greens of some sort (can be in a smoothie) everyday. Hope yours are going well!

I was searching for loan to sort out my bills & debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Card that can be hacked and withdraw money from any ATM machines around you anywhere in the world . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting united blank ATM hack card they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with $20,000 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 72 hours later, i was shock to see the Courier agent in my resident with a parcel {card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. Contact these email if you wants to get rich with this....Via email:
