It’s that time of the year again where we reflect back on 2017 & we come up with resolutions for 2018. Same thing, different year? I surely hope not! I’m gonna be honest with you guys, I never end up keeping my resolutions. Usually, they last for a few days and I go back to my old ways. So, I’ve been thinking about why that is recently. I came up with a simple conclusion: my goals were always unrealistic and not specific enough.

Can someone actually lose 20 lbs in one month and how? Well, I guess if you starve yourself everyday… That perfectly discribes how my resolutions typically go. So, this year, I decided to make it a little easier on myself and come up with little hurdles that I can actually achieve. As human beings, we like recognition, so everytime you achieve a small goal, you become so proud, that it makes it easier for the next one.

As such, here are my resolutions for 2018.

1- Lose weight – typical right? Well, I am a bit ashamed to say that I gained more weight than ever and I simply don’t feel good in my own skin anymore. Time to change that. How? My 1st goal will be to start working out at least 3 times a week & cut out junk food & fatty foods like cheese (this will not be easy). Losing 2 lbs per week seems like a realistic goal. And if I end up losing more, well that will just propell me to make better nutritional choices in the future!

2-Take charge of my career: I’ve been unhappy with certain aspects of my career life and it’s time to make some changes. How? Stay tuned as I will be revealing a fun new project I have been working on soon!

3- Be more positive: I know that it seems like I’m always smiley and up-beat but in reality, I doubt myself like most people. I tend to focus on the things that don’t work out as planned and end up discouraging myself sometimes. This year I will focus more on the positive and react quickly by revising my plans. Aferall, to-do lists are meant to be re-done over and over again!

4-Take more risks: I’ve been kinda sticking to the safe side of things in my life. I definitely took some bold risks (like pursing this blog), but I’ve been afraid of jumping into things b/c of the fear of failure. But, without failture, there is no success.¬†Afterall, in every failure there is opportunity, you just need to look closely to see it and seize it. So 2018, you shall be my year of bold moves.

5- Take time to spend with loved ones: As much as I pride myself at being able to prioritize, I still find myself scrambling to find time to go out with my hubs or my friends, and to see my family at least once a week. This year, I will be more selective with my activities so that I can spend time with people that matter most.

What are your resolutions?
