Hello 2017

I have to be honest, I'm the worst person at sticking to new years resolutions. Not because of my lack of dedication or because of laziness, I just forget. 

This year, I want to not only change that, but change the kind of resolutions I'm setting for myself. Yes I still want to save thousands of pounds and lose 3 stone but are those goals achievable? Yes. Can I be bothered? No.

So today, before I create my 'Fuck Budget' (more on this later in the week) I thought I'd do a quick round up of things I would like to achieve and lifestyle changes I want to make in 2017. 

I want to decide how I feel about my driving test. I passed my theory almost a year ago but since, haven't been slightly arsed to even think about taking my actual test. It's been booked and rebooked more times than I'd care to think. This year I just want to decide, do I want to do it or not. 

I want to get fit. I don't mean I want to lose a tonne of weight or go on some ridiculous diet that I can't follow. I just want to get fit. To tone my arms, legs and preferably my stomach. I want to be able to go for a run and not feel like I want to collapse 5 minutes in. There is no goal weight in mind, just fitness. 

See my family more. I can literally count on one hand how many times I saw my grandparents last year and it hit me very recently that they're not going to be around forever. Now, I don't mean that after my grandparents I'm going to be rushing out to see every second cousin under the sun. Just the family I want to keep close.

Save money Stop wasting money. I want to have money to fall back on but I also want to save for a big trip next year. I don't just mean putting money aside out of my salary, I mean not blowing it on 5 cocktail nights or endless fridge items that I let go out of date. 

Give less fucks about peoples opinions. I don't want to be constantly worried about what people think of my diet, my hair colour, whether I swear too much etc. Not my issue. 

Bother less with those that have a negative impact on my life. People constantly talking shit, causing drama or being a general misery there is no longer a place for you in my life. 

And finally, last but not least. Invest in my blog. I want to 100% invest more time and money into my blog in 2017. I want to engage with more people, make some great friends and enjoy every second of it. I want to be consistent but not strain myself.
