We are nearly halfway through 2014! It will be July next week – how scary is that?! I thought it was time to give an update on how I am going with my goals for 2014 seeing as a lot of you were super supportive in the comments section 🙂
1. I’m embarking on a Project 100 Pan.
You saw my holiday haul recently, but I did have a loophole 😛 But it has been great challenging myself to use up a lot of products. There is something sort of satisfying about using the last remnants of a product. I have a box in my Beauty Room with empty bottles and jars so I shall churn out some P100P posts soon.
2. This year, I will learn to love myself more.
Hmmm…tricky one to define…but I think I am learning to love myself. Not in a totally up-my-own-arse type of way. Will work on this more, methinks.
3. Grow me some balls!
They are growing!!! Example – There’s this person who intimidates me because s/he has a tendency to look down on me even though we are in similar league except s/he is older and very articulate (read : talks boring stuff like politics). Well, I grabbed my little balls and just went and spoke to them when I saw them recently and like I was all cool and that – we spoke non-political stuff but more, general normal down-to-earth people stuff. The OLD me would have just shrivelled in the corner as s/he likes to ignore my presence. Maybe we will be friends one day – not Facebook friends, but just “Hi, how are you?” friend.
4. Consolidate, consolidate, consolidate!
I am doing so well in the consolidation department! *pats myself on the back* I have nearly 95% wiped out my old blog and moved all the posts here. I’ve deleted emails galore. I have sorted through many products and chucked out the un-useable stuff and given away plenty. I am not a minimalist by far, but I have definitely consolidated and I can’t wait to do more.
5. Take lots more photos and improve my photography skills.
I have been reading my camera manual. It is boring as…but necessary to help me improve my photography. I have dabbled with Manual Mode and ooh, it’s really difficult to wrap my head around the photography jargon but it’s happening!
6. Laugh more!
I did a lot of laughing when I was back home in Scotland. I like to come up with these stupid witty jokes and laugh at my friends and make them laugh at me. It was sooooo fun! I wish all my Scottish friends would move to Australia!
7. Embrace motherhood.
Yep. Loving it. Except the dirty nappies and the grumpy bum stages she goes through. But I seriously love it!
8. Lose my pregnancy weight and tone up
Okay, so this was not one of my original goals…because if you remember correctly, I was rather happy with the amount of weight that I was shedding without even trying. I have plateaued! And even though I am VERY close to my original weight, my belly just FLOPS out whenever I eat a big meal and I look 6 months preggers again. In fact, when I was overseas this year, there were 2 people who asked me if I was pregnant with my second baby! YEP! THEY ASKED ME THAT WHEN BUNTY WAS ONLY 3 MONTHS OLD! LIKE WTF?!! Thanks for insulting me! Anyway, I need to get my exercise on…but it’s kinda hard to find the motivation to get me fired up to get of my arse and do some exercise! I refuse to diet so I have to exercise…sighs! Wish me luck!
Did you have any goals for 2014? How are you going with them? Let’s keep each other motivated 🙂
