Hey everyone, how are we all today? Are you enjoying the somewhat warmer weather now September has rolled around?!
I’ve decided to share with you guys some little goals and resolutions I’ve decided to set myself for the rest of the year.
September always makes me want to set a few resolutions, ever since I was little I’ve felt the new school term is like a fresh start so I usually think about where I’m heading and what I want to achieve around this time of year.
Even though I’m 22 and no longer a school student, this September is no different. The start of the new University term has got me thinking about my goals in life, and how I want to live my life.
My first resolution is to lose weight. Since living away from home I’ve put on around a stone in weight. A lot of my clothes don’t fit well anymore, and my confidence is beginning to fade! I’ve heard really good things about Slimming World and so, I’m going to my first meeting on Thursday. I’ll let you all know how it goes week to week.
September is also a good time to start the pre-Christmas diet! I don’t want to look porky in all the Christmas festivities’ photos!
My second resolution is to put more effort into University. I’m paying almost £4000 a year to attend University, yet I leave almost every assignment to last minute and wonder why I aren’t coming out with firsts!! I achieve fairly well with little effort, so I’m hoping putting more effort in will mean I achieve highly.
My third and final resolution is to be less frivolous with money. I currently work part time around University and also get student loans, yet I hardly ever have any money. I largely waste my pennies on new clothes and beauty products, along with a serious dose of socialising So, I aim to not buy a single new item of clothing for the entire of September. I’ve also set myself a strict budget that I’m going to stick to just to prove to myself that there isn’t so much need for waste.
As part of this third resolution I’ve decided to set myself a little fashion blog challenge! I’m going to update every Sunday for the next four weeks with ‘My Weekly Wardrobe’. Every day I’ll take a picture of my outfit, and at the end of the week post a little lowdown, I’m going to try and wear something different everyday. I have that many clothes, even after taking three bags full to the charity shop, that I should be able to wear something different everyday for a month! It’ll certainly help me put the fun into not shopping!!!
So, those are my little resolutions. Is there a time of year which makes you rethink things? What would you like to change or do differently in your lives? I’d love to hear from you!!
