“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
Okay so who has made resolutions before but completely forgot about them by February? Yup…been there, done that!
It’s definitely a challenge keeping those pesky resolutions when we get busy. But trust me, once you put your mind to it, you’ll accomplish everything you’re hoping for.
Yes I know it all sounds so cheesy and cliche but I’ve always thought they were actually a pretty great idea…that is, when I stick to them.
Now what are my 2019 resolutions?
Eat healthier and work out more
Yes I’m skinny and I may look fit. But trust me…I am far from it! For years, I haven’t really been watching what I eat and other than the occasional long walk, I don’t exercise much. Really bad, I know! So my top resolution for 2019 is to focus more on my physical health. I may not feel motivated to go to the gym all the time but I’d like to at least go once a week. And add some more veggies to my diet…even when I don’t want to eat them!
Move to a new city
So my boyfriend Adrian is going into the Air Force (EEK!) and he will be in tech school out in Texas for 2 years. My resolution? Get out of Colorado for a couple years and move to Austin so I can be closer to him! I know everyone and their mother wants to move there, but I do think Austin was a cool town. I’m really hoping for a new experience and to try out a new city that isn’t in Colorado (FYI I’m a Colorado native).
Grow my blog
This one is kind of obvious considering I am a blogger, but hey…I think it’s still important to include in my resolutions list! I’m hoping to get in with more influencer and affiliate programs, build my blog and social media audiences and just be an all-around blogging badass! It’ll be hard to balance with a full-time job but I’m determined to make 2019 the year my blog explodes!
Travel to at least one new place
I of course have some favorite vacation spots (Arizona being one of them). But one of my resolutions for 2019 is to find a new place to travel to. I’ve got a few places on my list I’m thinking of for next year (San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles, New York City, to name a few). Now I just gotta save up my money instead of spending it all on shoes and makeup…oops!
Finish reading my unfinished books
I’m not much a reader but I did start two books in 2018 that I haven’t made the time to finish. One that I really want to finish is Crazy Rich Asians. I loved the movie and the book so far is really good. Now just to set my mind to reading a little bit every day. For me, that’ll be hard just because I’m such a Netflix addict but I also want reading to be on my list of resolutions for next year.
Ok you’re probably asking: how the hell am I supposed to keep track of my resolutions? Lucky for you, I found a few cool apps that will help (DISCLAIMER: I’m not an affiliate with any of these apps. They just sounded cool to me):
Coach.me – lets you set any goals you want and you can even share your progress if you so choose
MyFitnessPal – hoping to be more active next year? Keep your fitness goals in check and get in shape with this app
Wunderlist – this is another great app to set your goals in a list format! Great for those organizers out there (like me!)
Mint – if your resolution is to be more financially saavy, this app will help you keep track of your budget (trust me, I’ve used this one and it is pretty great!)
Now I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s Eve plans consist of eating lots of food, drinking and spending time with family. Let me know what your resolutions are for next year down below in the comments OR chat me up and send me an email.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe night tonight! And if you can help it, don’t get too carried away with the champagne.
