Today I wanted to do a quick check-in on my New Years Resolutions. We are coming to the end of our first month of 2015 and I have made some head way…
To recap, my resolutions were to:
Buy quality pieces over quantity // Drink at least three litres of water a day // Cut stress in half when hosting parties
(1) I have put myself on a pretty strict shopping reduction for this month to factor in paying off Christmas and for the party I threw last weekend. I have bought a few pieces this month and they were definitely of quality (swimsuit, workout leggings & snowboarding pants). I wouldn’t say I’m working towards a specific item ‘goal’ per say, but I’m trying to be thoughtful of the purchases I do make.
(2) I have been consistently hitting this on a daily basis, aside from weekends. On weekends there is less of a routine and I’m often out running errands or doing things with friends where I’m not carrying a water bottle with me and also, there isn’t always a bathroom that’s super accessible. I’m pleased that I’ve been keeping this up; it’s not easy, to say the least, but I think it’s doing my mental health some good (on top of the physical well being).
(3) I hosted a party this past weekend and chipped away at the details every night for two weeks. I went to one or two different stores each day in search of decor and spent one evening DIY’ing a few things in advance. I even picked up the food to prep and had it ready hours before the party was set to start. I was definitely a little panic-y but it was mainly due to a couple girls running behind schedule. All in all, we pulled it off and it was a huge success!
