|The prettiest birthday card from my Grandma. It's a tradition to get the cutest cards from her every year.|
I had a wonderful day yesterday! Lots of wishes from friends and family & lots of my instagram pals, good food, lots of cake and also managed to squeeze in Bridget Jones Baby into all of this which absolutely made my day. It was such a funny film and good ol' romantic comedies don't come out as much anymore. So I was so glad I could catch it before it went out of theatres. I am writing this on the 4th , one day after my birthday. I decided to sit down, write about a few things I want to achieve in the coming year.
1. I want to switch up my posting schedule a little bit from the coming month and I’m planning to post a little more frequently. Running a blog really takes up a lot of my time and I’ve been feeling inconsistent lately so I’m going to get things up and going pretty soon. I need to find a routine that’s realistic and actually works for me.
2. I’ve been on a huge health kick this year. Not the kind where I spend hours in the gym (I don’t). I have really been incorporating healthy eating habits and simple exercise and have been able to lose 10 pounds this year. My final goal is to lose 6 more pounds and then I’ll reach my goal weight. I have been attempting to do this very gradually and through healthy eating only. (no crash diets) which is why it's taking me much longer but I think it has been worth the wait so far.
3.Read more books! – Here comes the clichéd point that makes it to everyone’s resolutions list but this one’s something I’m serious about. I love reading and have been always been such an avid reader but lately I’ve found myself reading very few books. The decline from reading 4 books a month to possibly 5-6 books a year has been very drastic for me. I blame time issues for it because I have been consumed with university, running a blog and just basic life things. I feel like I need to get back into the reading habit and try reading at least one book a month to begin with.
That's all! I decided to keep these resolutions short and achievable which I think is way more motivating for next year as well. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog/comments on it and anyone who wished me on social media yesterday. I couldn't be more thankful to have people from all over the world connecting with me in a way that I could have never imagined.
