At the start of last year, I sat down and wrote a blog post with an almost identical title to this one (the only differences being the 7 was a 6, and I was way more naive about the expectations I set myself). This post will be more realistic, and hopefully, more manageable than last years.
- Eat better, drink more water.
One of the biggest problems I have is the temptation of fast food. It has become too easy these days to grab a bite to eat in the drive-thru in town, rather than wait the 15 minutes to get home and make myself something. I aim to eat at least twice a day, and all my food to be prepared at home. As well as eating better, I aim to drink at least 3 litres of water a day. Over the past years I have found myself drinking too much cola, and other sugary drinks. I’m going to replace these drinks with water.
- Exercise more.
This one is intentionally vague. My daily average of steps is around 4,500, and I want to double that in the next 6 months, and maintain that level for the rest of the year. I’m going to do things like parking further away from where I need to be and walking the extra distance. As well as that, I’m going to go for more walks. There are so many pretty places around here with walking trails that I want to explore.
- More reading and more writing.
I really feel like I’ve let myself down when comes to this blog. I’ve had such big ideas for this blog and I keep getting distracted, or finding myself lacking motivation. I want to start earning money from the blog, and develop some partnerships with companies in the future. I also want to read more. I have a list of books as long as my arm that I want to read, as well as dozens of articles bookmarked on my browser.
- Develop a better sleep routine.
My sleep schedule has been haphazard for a good while now. I am going to start getting up at a set time each morning (7:30 weekdays, 8:30 weekends) and start going to bed before midnight each night.
So there you have it. What goals have you set in place for 2017? Did anyone have any success with their 2016 goals? Let me know in the comments below.
