A look at the year passed…

So, 2014 is nearly over. Before we start making promises we can’t keep, let’s take a look at the year that has been and gone.

In last year’s post I made the following promises:

  • I would do Yoga twice a week
  • I would clean my make-up brushes once a month
  • Save lots of pennies for a huge holiday (more on that later!)
  • Eat breakfast more often
  • Eat less cheese

Let’s break it down…

Now it may not seem like a lot, but I am a fan of ‘baby steps’ since there is a reason I have a problem achieving any of the above anyway!

But I am happy to report that I do go to Yoga at least once a week, and a few months ago I did join a gym and go at least three times a week – and have managed to keep that up longer than I ever have (in my 25 years I have joined four gyms and quit/stopped going before any contract has ever been up).

Okay, I still haven’t cleaned my make-up brushes, but that can go on next year’s list – God loves a tryer!

The holiday, oh the holiday! Well, I have been a VERY good girl this year, you may recall that I mentioned both Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef in from my Bucket List post from my birthday. and

Well, with all of the Primark-dodging I have been doing, I managed to save so hard that on December 28 2014, I will be flying to Sydney to see in the New Year, before flying to Hamilton Island to dive the Great Barrier Reef.

Not to mention visiting the little penguins in Melbourne, or staying in a hut on the private island of Mamanuca off the mainland of Fiji! Click here to see exactly why you should all be so jealous.

Next up, breakfast. Well. No. Sorry.

Eating less cheese, however, I have managed! I just don’t eat it with EVERY meal. Sometimes I go a whole day without cheese. Go me!

All in all not a bad year for me, and I am happily ending 2014 20lbs lighter than when the year started *squeal*.

Have you managed to stay on track for a whole year?

What are your New Year resolutions?
