22 Goals For 2015: Not New Years Resolutions NY Goals!

22 Goals For 2015: Not New Years Resolutions NY Goals!

Not made any New Year resolutions as I never keep them. So here are some of my 2015 goals!!

1.) Find a perfect job :

Over the next few months I will be looking for a job! Trouble is when your husband works shifts I need to be working in school hours so I can take my daughter to and from school. Be home when its the holiday and take a hour out when I need to. A perfect job would be working from home! Any ideas anyone?

2.) Fall in love with running again :

2014 was my hate running year. I did London Marathon on not much training. I really got lazy with my running. This year I have started a run streak. Not up to many miles yet but it is coming back and starting to enjoy it. Maybe this could be my year?

3.) Scooter more :

I love to go out on the scooters with my daughter. We have so much fun. The wet Winter days and early dark nights my have stopped our fun for a little while, but trying to get 15 minutes in after school. It is only going to get lighter nights and my daughter has a brand new sparkly scooter off Santa she is excited to get out with.

4.) More Weekends away :

Winter makes me long for Summer. Fun day out,  holidays, weekends away and beach fun. Maybe if I find the perfect job we will have more money for more beach fun.

5.) Laugh at myself more :

Ok we all like fun, sometimes I take the banta a bit to serious!!

You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing. Michael Pritchard

 6.) Quality over quantity :

Stop buying cheap shoes and save up for that special pair. Also wear them, I have to many pretty shoes crying out to be worn. Saying that I just picked up 3 pair of cheap shoes in the sales. They are flat though so I will be able to wear them on the school run.

7.) Visit London more : 

We love London. How good is it to be a tourist in London!?! love it. Ever time we visit we have special times and such fun memories. Good food, lovely walks and always find some where new to explore.

8.) Upcycle more : 

Time and up-cycling don’t go at the minute. I should have made this 23 goals and added a time management goal. I love up cycling old things into fun new new things. It gives them a whole new makeover.

9.) Take more rides on the train :

We love going for days out on the train. I really need to organise some fun days out this year {more time management}. So many fun places only a short train ride away, so need to make more use of the trains.

 10.) Plan a race :

Plan a race to have a running goal. If you have a race planned your more likely to get out running!?! Park run is great for a weekly free 5km race but need to think about booking a 10k to get more miles in.

11.) Visit Bakewell more:

Bakewell is such a beautiful place and only about a hours drive away. Country side, big hills to climb, fun market days and shows. Also lots of lovely shops and the most amazing chip shops and bakery’s.

12.) Eat less sugar :

Oh wow I am just looking at these doughnuts now and craving one!! Eat less sugar but if I had these now I would be eatting them. One by one… So stop buying them too.

13.) Take better photos :

Read up on how to take better photos. I havebeen saying this for years. When ever I go out with my camera I really wish I had read more about my camera a taking the perfect picture. Study the instrutions my new camera Santa brought me.

14.) Enjoy life more :

Sometimes I get stressed over the littlest and so unimportant thing! Why? Must try harder to think the glass is half full instead of half empty. Less stress, more fun…

15.) Holiday:

Plan a few nice UK holidays. Maybe thinking about going abroad again. Sun, sea, sand special family time.

16.) Dress up more :

Dress up more. Wear my nice clothes, shoes and make up more. Instead of just making my wardrobe pretty.

17.) Take more bike rides : 

Get out more on family bike rides and sneaky days out again in London with the hubby hiring a bike and riding around site seeing.

18.) Take better food photography :

My photography’ of food never take to well in the darkish kitchen. Read how to take better photos and take a perfect picture like this Seasonal Berries one.

19.) Eat out more oftern :

We love taking time out and going for meal. Need to plan family fun meals out and the occasional meal out with the hubby more.

20.) More quality us time :

Meals out? cinema? nights out? together!?!We keep saying we will, just waiting for warmer days…

21.) More quality family time:

Learning new things whilst having fun. Visiting more museums. More fascinating places. More learning when having fun.

22.) Be the best in the world :

Well the best I can be!!

    Those or fantastic goals!Wow! You ran a marathon!!Home job – professional blogger?? …Too obvious? ;-)Less sugar – haha! You'll have to stop posting pics like that one! Having a stash of dark chocolate (70%+) is my solution to this one… WAY less sugar than sweets or bakes but still enough to feel you got what you needed; and the endorphin kick… Not bad at all!I'll be watching this space to see how your run planning goes, that sounds like a lot of fun.Enjoy your days, your life, your family; and you're gorgeous, so flipping heck yes, save up for those beautiful shoes & dress up more :-)…First & longest comment of 2015…

    Great goals here, best of luck in achieving them all. I'm glad you've fallen back in love with running, it's such a great way to make everything else fall into place, I find. Happy new year! x #PoCoLo

    We are the same with the photography. I always wanted to finally use more than those pre-set modes! I also wanted to go home. 2015 is that year I wish. I am also looking for that job so if you got one and they still need one please tell me =PAll in all I just want to be a better version of me! #pocolo

    I like the idea of goals, instead of resolutions.I think we would all be better off if we would learn to laugh more, even at ourselves.I'm visiting from Friendship Friday.

    I have that last T Shirt! I am the same – I set goals, not resolutions. We are hoping to get our running on a bit more and I hope to get into Park Run (at the recommendation of Ross' parents who are seasoned runners!). I heard Peter Swift, the guy who set it up, on the radio this morning. Really interesting. Thank you for linking to #PoCoLo and good luck with your goals x
