Put Down The Cheese: What Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?

new year's resolutions

Oh, I might have dreamed of – and gotten – a mild Christmas, but I also got a calorie-laden one. I dunno about you, but this year, there was no piece of Cashel Blue too far for moi. No glass of white wine I wouldn’t drink and no Rose I would I baulk at eating. Even the caramel barrels. Yes. EVEN those.

It’s safe to say my main resolution is to go on a diet, toot sweet.

What about you? Got anything lined up on your list o’ things you intend to do for 2012? Get fit, learn a new language, master the art of driving a car, learn cordon bleu cookery, ditch cleansing wipes, learn how to blend, get a new hobby, find a new job, achieve a work/life balance (I might look into this one meself), quit the shopaholia, start a savings account, investigate a pension, buy a house, save and splurge on your first designer purchase, go on an amazing holiday, write a book, start a blog – oh, the possibilities are endless.

Dish!

    Happy New Year Ladies!!! I’ll start by saying I probably need a new job as I’ve been in work since 8am this morning but the main goal this year is LOSE WEIGHT!! This is the year I’m going to get fit and healthy. Looking forward to 2012 :) The high’s + lows, up’s + down’s and that bit in the middle ;) Bring it!!

  • The ones I take every year, and never follow:
    - stop smoking
    - drink less
    - save money instead of splurging at every occasion

    The ones I may follow this year:
    - keep blogging and try to provide quality content
    - get braces fitted so I can smile without being self conscious
    - be nicer to LeColloc who is always so nice to me
    - change job!

    Happy New Year girls!

  • Oh and trying to apply body lotion after every shower, instead of once in a blue moon!

  • Jus realised my first comment isn’t up!
    I could say I will stop smoking, spend less money and do more around the house.
    But since there’s no way it will happen, I will instead try to keep blogging, change job and be nicer to LeColloc who is so nice to me!

    Hehe – just had last night’s left over cheese for breakfast!! Have loads of resolutions but need to write them down and actually come up with a plan of how I’m going to do them otherwise I’ll do nothing.

    Buying a house has been on the list for the last three years but the right house has not yet come along… fingers crossed.

    My main thing is to get in better shape in time for my friend’s wedding in May – execution of this will be easier when I know whether I’m going to be in the UK for next 3/4 months.

    The main thing is complete wardrobe overhaul and only buying properly special things this year; no more asos/forever21 binges, more time on fashion blogs, learning how to accessorise… just taking it to the next level. Self-centered and frivolous, but I’m ok with that :)

    Going to try to be more organised i.e. work clothes ready the night before, or shock, every Sunday night be organised for the week!!
    Spend a bit more time on myself pampering etc. – really let this slide last yr as I still have some body products I got for xmas last year!
    Stop leaving it to the last minute to get out of bed for work so I am not tearing in trying not to be late and being stressed before I even get to my desk.
    Plan weekends better so I get things done!
    Keep on track of housework (espc. bathroom) so I don’t end up having to do a monster clean every few weeks!!
    Read more instead of watching crap TV in bed.
    Get more excercise and keep at goal weight.
    Keep track of spending and try to save more.
    Pay off the credit card!!

    Kirstie – the comment about eating even the Caramel barrels in the tin of Roses made me laugh so much! I did that last night

    My number one resolution for this year is to GET ORGANISED

    This is my number one resolution every year and it hasn’t happened yet…
