2014 New Years Resolutions

Happy Sunday Funday!

Since my 2013 New Years Resolutions were a fail - see here. I'm hoping for a better 2014!
I spoke with my fiance last Sunday about how my resolutions were not accomplished and how I was upset about it, he offered suggestions: make New Years Resolutions for a month instead of a full year and print it out and post it above my desk so I am reminded of it everyday. 

How clever!

 I decided that every month I would set goals and revisit them at the end of the month to see how I did. I also decided to do yearly ones just because some take longer than a month. 

Anyway, I won't list ones for the month and year I'm just going to list them. :)

So some of my New Years Resolutions for 2014:

1.) To be more organized and to have a cleaning schedule. In our old apartment I use to be on top of always cleaning and keeping things in order. Yea, sometimes there was messes but it wouldn't stay that way for long. If you saw my closet, you'd throw up. My shoes are all over the place, along with bags, it's just disgusting. I'm having a hard time finding time to do the things I want to do. I found a lot of good cleaning schedules on Pinterest, I might try to stick with one or modify it to meet my needs. 
Here are some cleaning schedules I pinned on Pinterest:

2.) To actually do the things I pin on Pinterest! If I stopped pinning so much(8,325 pins to date) I would have time to do the things I pin on Pinterest! So I'm going to try to do 3 projects a month, maybe less! I'd also like to make a day on my blogging schedule to talk about it. (Maybe Monday?) I'm undecided, I'm not trying to make it so it's stressful for myself because Fiance & I travel a lot on weekends so I don't want to commit to anything! While doing projects I'd like to recreate outfits I like on Pinterest. I'm not going to buy new items to create the outfit (maybe occasionally) but create the outfits with things I already have in my closet. I'd like to do this more than just 3 times a month, but who knows?! Pinterest and blogs are definitely where I get inspiration from.  I love both of these images! 


3.) Lose weight. Like everyone and their mother, this is always one of my New Years resolutions, and sometimes I stick with it and sometimes I don't. Let's hope I do this year! I am getting T25 by Shawn T(creator of Insanity). I've done Insanity before and it worked for me (lost 20 pounds), so I'm hoping the T25 works for me. I'm doing T25 because it only takes 25 minutes out of your day, and I can handle that, rather than an hour. 

4.) Instead of saying I want to blog more(I do!!) I am going to try to stick with blogging at least twice a week. I'm going to try this for a month and see where it goes, maybe I'll blog more, or maybe I won't blog at all. I don't want to put myself in any type of commitment and be disappointed in myself. Let's just see where this goes!   

5.) Make more time for myself. I don't know what I'm going to do when I have children! This job is killing me! (I was actually job searching on Friday!) I want to take better care of myself as I'm getting older. That means eating healthier, exercising, etc. I also want to make time for myself to do things I enjoy! Like crafts and blogging. I guess this should be my biggest goal! 

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

I love the Pinterest idea! And I really like the teal and tan outfit :). Great resolutions- they sound super doable, especially since there's some flexibility built in.

This is a good common sense Blog. Very helpful to one who is just finding the resources about this part. It will certainly help educate me.
