As you all know, I made six New Year Resolutions for this year. I’m not one to usually make any at all but I thought this year would be different and I would do my best to keep up with them. So, I thought every three months, I’ll give you guys an update as to how far along I’ve been keeping up with my resolutions and this would be my first update 🙂

Two of my resolutions had to do with a healthy lifestyle… probably three. I wanted to eat healthy, continue with my yoga practices and also stay away from fizzy and unhealthy drinks. Super thrilled to say, I have been sticking with all three. I love salads and soups so I have been having more of them as a whole meal, I’ve also been practising yoga three to four times a week and I’ve had no fizzy drinks since the beginning of this year. Yay me! I’ve also taken a few extra steps to do a bit of cardio every now and then during the week and weekend whenever I have the time and I actually feel myself become stronger and fit.

I’ve also been reading quite progressively over the past two months and I am super duper happy about it. I actually missed holding a book in my hand so to have me back on the reading bandwagon is such a happy and satisfying feeling. I’ve already ordered another book online for the month of April. As for blogging a couple of times a week, you guys can obviously tell, I am making a huge effort to make sure I have posts very frequently. I do not want to fall off that bandwagon and neglect this blog, especially when it’s just about a year since I started. I didn’t quite realise that until writing this post right now…. oh boy it’s been a year!!!! Just want to take a moment and say a HUGE thank you to all my followers and fellow bloggers you have been supporting me throughout this journey, and also another round of thank yous to my family and friends 🙂 🙂

As for expanding my little online business, I will be featured in a teen magazine next month! Yes, this is another step towards the expansion process and I am so happy and feel so blessed to be where I am in my life right now. Things are really working out well so once again a big thank you to everyone who has supported me through the thick and the thin!

That’s it from me guys, until next time xoxoxo!

I’m not typically a ‘make resolutions every year’ kind of person. For the most part I’m worried I won’t be able to stick to them so I don’t make them. But this year I thought I should really make an effort and come up with some good resolutions and see how well I stick to them….*deep breathe* okay, here goes!

  1. Read a book a month – This is partially because I love books and I used to read a book a week but I haven’t done so in the past year. So, I really want to pick up my reading habit 🙂
  2. Eat healthy – It’s not that I eat a ton of junk food but my husband and I do tend to eat out at least once a week and well… I’d like to eat a little more healthy and give the soups and salads a try more often that getting a chunky burger or wrap. *Fingers crossed*
  3. No fizzy drinks – This was something I managed to do two years ago but got back on to during the past year…so gonna try not having any fizzy pop this year.
  4. Expand my little online business – I’m trying to connect with some local beauty salons and nail spas to up my game and expand my business. Wish me luck!
  5. Blog at least twice a week – So far I have been doing it thrice or more a week but if I do happen to get stuck, I still want to be able to blog at least twice and keep my reach going strong. It’ll be a year since I started blogging in March and well, I think I’ve had good progress….want to continue to keep it up.
  6. Get back to practising yoga – I used to do this at home and knew a lot of the moves to manage a good half an hour of yoga but I really need to brush up on it now. I have forgotten a couple of movements so I’m going to have to use a lot of video references. I like doing yoga at the comfort of my own home and I’ve got a yoga mat too…so let’s try and put that to good use this year.

Alrighty…. that’s just about it… I know it all doesn’t seem like much but I’m gonna give these a try this year and truly hope for the best 😀

Xoxo
