What If I Don’t Achieve All 30??

Yesterday, I decided I wanted to go to The Mall Of America next year just after my birthday…..I looked into it and realised that it would be approx £950 to get there & stay there (including a trip to my Godparents). Then I realised that I would have to add at least another £750 minimum for spending money, I then did what every good person does and made a Pro Vs Con list……more on that later!

It did make me realise that actually I might not be able to do everything on my list, I want to move out and save for my deposit more than anything & I am almost 30% there – but this does mean that other things might just have fall by the way side! Thing is, I am quite ambitious and I hate letting people down most of all I hate not achieving goals that I set myself! So for me to accept that I might not actually be able to cross all 30 things off my list has only just occured to me!

What does it mean if I dont do it all, what happens? do I still have to try to cross these off after I am 30? Or do I just quit and if I do quit, what happens to my blog? I figure they are all questions only I can answer and only I can work out myself. This is one the things I hate about being a grown up…..you have to make your own decisions, no one can do it for you AND it comes down to you if you muck up!

One thing I am positive I am going to do is at least ATTEMPT to cross all 30 things off my list and have a bloody good time doing it!

Here Is What I Have Achieved So Far!

Review Of 2014

Wow, I can’t believe we are already in 2015! 2014 went super quick and soo much happened. I went a week without technology, had & threw up afternoon tea at The Ritz, saw a fashion show at London Fashion Week, Milked A Cow, went on a road trip to Ohio, went to a Rodeo in Ohio (in a maxi dress!), had a photo shoot with my mum, went on a spa weekend with Hayley and finally made my own Christmas cards!

As well as all of that I had 2 holidays, brought a new car, broke my foot, went to the grand national, reunited with old friends, lost new friends and caught lightening bugs in America. To say it has been a quiet year would be a bit of an understatement. However, for some reason whenever anyone says to me “oh what have you been up to?” I never seem have much to report back, which in actual fact is a LIE!

I cant really say what my favourite thing of 2014 was as I have a lot of happy memories and ones that I will treasure forever. There have been some sad times as well, Matt & I know people that have ended relationships, lost family members and experienced a lot of sadness this year.

I am really excited to see what 2015 has in store for me, I know that one thing is for sure I am fly to VEGAS in April! I cannot wait, I am sooo excited! I have also started number 24 – its a bit hard to find something to take a picture of everyday, but I am excited to look back on them in a years time! There are 2 more things that I would like to cross of this year, but I am going to keep them for myself and surprise you all when I announce them! People often ask each other, what New Year’s resolutions they are making; I cant help but feel that you are setting yourself up for failure, especially if they are diet or fitness related. I have made 3 resolutions for this year, but these are things I started doing at the beginning of December:

Be Kinder To Myself – dont put too much pressure on myself to hit certain goals, just enjoy life

Make More Effort With Those That Make The Effort With Me – I am not great at texting people back or calling people, but I am concious that I dont want to lose friendships that I have, so I am going to make the effort more, especially with those that always make an effort to reach out to me.

Save At Least 12k By The End Of The Year – I already have about a 3rd of this saved, so its a reasonable goal, but one that I want to achieve to get my own home!

Have you made any resolutions for the new year? what were your favourite things of 2014?

Boobies!!!

Men – There Are No Boobies On Show!

Good Evening All!

I am breaking a rule tonight & using technology after 9pm…..it is Saturday after all!

So today I was running some errands with Matt and decided to test my luck and pop into Marks & Spencers to see if they had any gaps for a Bra fitting today & low and behold they had a gap in the next half hour! So we had a walk around and I found some pretty bras and also realised there was an offer on for anyone that had a free bra fitting today – BARGAIN!

bra fitting

The fitting its self was pretty normal, however I did find out that I am between band sizes and also should be wearing a larger cup size than I am currently! It did take us a while to find a few bra’s that I liked and also fitted, I was having to try a 34 and if that was too tight at 36 – but it all depended on the style of bra as to what band size I needed. I didn’t really realise how long I had been in there for until I walked out the changing room and saw Matt…..

He Does Not Look Impressed!

So I got myself some bras that were in the sale and we grabbed some lunch and headed back home!

Successful trip to Marks & Spencer I think!

Em xxx

p.s the offer finishes tomorrow!

Motivation…….

Today I ran 1/2 mile in 7 minutes, yes I know that’s slow and not a great time but I ran the whole way and didn’t stop. For me that is a bit achievement .

I have started to get used to being at the gym for an hour and splitting that hour between cardio and weights. Some days are easier than others, but this journey is a LONG one and results won’t come over night, you have to WORK hard to see the results and it makes it even better when you get there!

Don’t give up!

Letting The Side Down…..

Hey!

I have been letting myself down a bit! I only managed 45mins at the gym on Monday but managed an hr on Sunday! I haven’t been since, but will be bk tomorrow and Friday and I WILL do 1hr! I felt so good afterwards on Sunday…..

Also the whole no technology after 9 kinda got forgotten about but I am going to make a conscious effort to start it as of tonight!

Things have just been a bit manic so far this month, so I am looking forward to settling down and into a routine for the rest of the month!

Let get this month kick started and kicked into shape!!!
