New Year New Goals

So it's that time of year once more, when we all make ridiculous resolutions that we only keep for a few weeks. I am not usually one to make resolutions (which imply an impossible transformation/change). Instead, I like to think of setting new goals and establishing new habits.

I think everyone should strive to be happier, healthier, and a better person each and every year, and January 1st gives us a great opportunity to reflect and reset! But remember that your goals should be realistic, measurable, and challenging.

My goals for 2014:
I will take my vitamins everyday (not just the days I remember)
I will run a half marathon (more on that later)
I will reduce my sugar intake (apparently it is the devil)
I will drink more water
I will put money into savings every month
I will be less impulsive with my purchases
I will continue to blog on a regular basis
I will visit four new European cities this summer (this one may not seem challenging, but it requires saving and planning)
I will cook two meals at home at least once a week (this will be challenging for me lol)

What are your New Year's resolutions?

  1. I HATE cooking, that should have been one of my resolutions because I want to learn to like it.

  2. Loved your goals! These are great ones - and seem doable!

  4. Those are some great goals! I too wish to take my running to the next level! I was thinking quarter marathon to start ;) Best of luck!


  5. These are great resolutions! I totally agree with the saving resolution, as it is one of mine too. I need to stop spending so much money!

  6. I really want to evolve. Just working on myself and my reactions to what I cannot control.

  7. Haha, these sound like my goals...especially the sugar one. It really is evil, it lures me in with it's sugary goodness then gives me massive headaches. I definitely need to work on MY sugar intake as well.... :D Love you blog btw! :)

  8. I'm wanting to focus more on a school and read lots of books this year, since I can probably count on one hand how many boos I read last year... (Which is very sad since I love reading.)
