I accomplished in 2015
- REIGNITING MY MORNING PERSON
As a child I hated waking up early, my dad would try a number of remedies to get me up including a spray bottle filled with refrigerated water to the face. Thanks dad! In 2013, I returned to Australia from South America, and was determined to become a morning person I set my alarm for the same time each morning, regardless of the day and what I did the night before, to go for a walk and have time to sit and enjoy, instead of scoffing (we all do/have done it) breakfast before work.
The lifestyle in Barcelona demanded late nights and even later starts, so routine was shooed out the window.
This year, being back in Australia, I was determined to reset my body clock. Hello washing on, brekki date with Karl and a cheeky workout completed before the workday commences. If you haven’t done this – try it! The early bird gets the worm – GET THAT WORM!
- SIX MONTHS + REFINED SUGAR FREE
I started this with a friend who wanted moral support. Bloody hard work for the first 3 weeks, but game changer! My skin has never looked so good, and my energy levels have never been so consistent. 3pm chocolate cravings you’re outta here for good!
- WHOLE FOODS CONVERT
I’ve never had digestion explained in such simple terms as Dr Libby (more info here) and the comparison of energy sourced and available from processed foods vs whole homemade foods. Knowing the lack of capability our bodies have to break down preservatives I am far more likely, now, to make a homemade hummus or pasta than buy it ready made. Eat fresh and colourful!
- KAVED FOR KALE
Never liked it, nor understood the craze. Now, I do because it was served wilted with bacon (yes, I said that in the same breath as whole foods because – all things in moderation kids). That’s all.
- REFLECTION OF TARGETED AREAS FOR BECOMING MORE ORGANIZED AND PRODUCTIVE
A big thing for me this year was to grow in confidence in work. To be able to do that, meant actually get better what I do and shake my natural instinct of being ADHOC and take a few minutes to plan and be structured. Hell, there’s a ways to go but the scaffolding and awareness is there.
I aim to better in 2016
- STICK TO AN ALL NATURAL SKIN REGIME AND FLOSS
Not really much to add here but consistency is paramount and I want to be better at that and keep those, pearly whites and, gums healthy. Although I’m yet to choose a skin care product as yet (great timing) but I’ll do some research and fill you in, on the product chosen, and why.
- COMPLETE ONE CROSS WORD MONTHLY – starting small and realistic (dictionary’s and Google allowed for the first few)
Boosting the ol’ vocab and keep the brain young.
- GOOD VIBRATION SENDING
I have never met someone who hated receiving good vibes, so I want to be a good vibe advocate by sending a friend, or stranger; a positive note, funny postcard or memory each month in 2016.
- DRINK MORE WATER
Water is good. We need lots. Nuff said.
- GIVE GIFTS ON TIME THIS YEAR
I’m shit at present giving at the best of times, although I have no issues with buying myself presents! Damn it. So, I’m going to give a good crack on redirecting the passion for selfish spending (time included).
