Resolutions for 2015

I know I am already 8 days late getting these resolutions out there but I am the type of person that if I don't know if I am really going to stick to something then I don't want to be held accountable for it and then my failures broadcast for all to see. Really though I am not a fan of failure but I am also one to try new things and want to see changes in myself. So here you have it, my resolutions for 2015 that I am already 7 days into achieving. There is not stopping me now.

+Read more. last year I read maybe 5 books, but I also didn't have a goal set last year to read more, so this year I have set a hefty goal of 25-30. I know that seems like a lot but I have a fair amount of down time each day so there is no reason that I can't pick up a book at least 5 nights of the week and read for 30 minutes or more.

+Live a healthier lifestyle. In the last couple of months I have really fallen off the workout train and kissed healthy eating goodbye and said hello to convenience. Well four months later I am really noticing the effects this has had on my body and my overall well being. My clothes fit tighter, I have bought larger sizes and I just don't feel 100%. I need to fix this before it becomes way too out of control and I have to aboard the struggle bus for months on end to see any results. This will obviously include eating healthier, home cooked meals and working out on a more regular basis.
Another part of living a healthier lifestyle is to socialize more. I find myself coming straight home after work and not wanting to go do anything with friends or my husband through the weekend and then the weekend comes and we just lounge around all weekend. This is obviously not good and makes me slightly depressed after a while. So in an effort to hang out with friends and family more I am going to make deliberate effort to try to plan a girls night once a month, whether it be go get drinks or grab a bite to eat, go see a movie at the movie theater with my husband, or have a craft afternoon with my Mom, Grandma, Aunts and cousins.

+Financially stable. This year we are cutting back on our casual spending and trying to save more money and pay off our debt. Dave Ramsey is paying a huge help to us with this. 

Do you make resolutions or have goals for 2015? If so what are a couple of yours for this year? How good are you at keeping them?
Here is a to a successful and healthy 2015


  1. These are great goals Britt! I totally feel your pain in the socializing department! Although I really don't have anyone around to socialize with, but it's still the point I don't even want to leave the house once I get home from work. I'm a little nervous that it's going to be even worse once the baby arrives. haha. :) I haven't set one single goal for us for the new year except to pay off some debts and save some serious money! :)

  2. I totally need to be more social during the week, but I totally know what you mean and for me living in Boston it's hard since it's so cold!!! Can't wait to see how you do with the rest of your goals! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. These are all such great resolutions. I think the 8 days you waited to share them is a drop in the bucket compared to the 365 in the year. :)
