new year, new me

Yes of course the title of this post is totally a cliche but I mean it completely. With New Year approaching I thought I'd reflect on how 2014 went down and how I plan to improve next year. This past year I surprised myself with how much weight I could lose if I really put my mind to it, however moving to halls and starting university threw my weight-loss out the window. Since starting university I've put on all the weight I'd lost and more, of course it's the result of bad eating habits and no exercise - something I'd promised myself I wouldn't do. However, because 2015 arrives in 5 days I've decided that it's about time I concentrated on eating healthy and finding the time to exercise to redeem a healthy lifestyle and get back on track, not just to lose weight but also to improve my wellbeing and make myself happier. I found the above list on Pinterest and thought that it'd be a great way of encouraging a healthier and better lifestyle for myself, so here's my own list of things that I'm going to try do this year. 

1. eat healthier - just because junk food is cheaper, doesn't mean that it's the right thing to buy in Tesco's when you've ran of decent food. Buy some salad for a change. 

2. drink more water - fizzy juice and alcohol isn't so good for you either, maybe try drinking water most days to help flush out any toxins from the bad stuff.

3. exercise more often - in fact exercise, period. I know it's difficult to find the time to exercise with a busy schedule but it's important to be healthy, even if you just walk to or back from uni a couple of times a week!

4. stay organised - organisation is the key to being successful. 

5. take time to relax - overworking yourself isn't going to help, it's important to have some down time, even if you have work due the next day or you're exams are coming up. Being a stress-head is only going to make things worse. 

6. try your best - it's okay to give in sometimes, just do your best and you'll be the happiest you can be.
