Usually I don't give much thought to New Year resolutions, but this time I feel otherwise. I'm ready for a change. Here it goes.
In 2012 I am going to...
… lose some weight. I know, this is the oldest and by far most violented of new-year promises, but I REALLY need it! I'm not overweight, but I used to be thinner and more fit. I have put on a few kilos in the course of last year, probably because of too-high stress levels, poor eating habits and lack of exercise. Most annoying about the weight gain is that I have so many beautiful clothes that won't fit me any more. BOO! I need to get hold of myself and put an end to this sucky situation. I would be very happy even if I managed to lose 5 kgs, but I wouldn't mind losing more. I'll try to do it on my own at first, but if I don't have any success, I'll join the Estonian version of WeightWatchers.
… get my lazy butt to the gym finally! I need to make workout a frequent part of my life in order to achieve this weight loss. Of course this is another staple New Year resolution, but we all know better than well I won't be able to achieve my first goal without it... I have my eye on a quite expensive gym/spa my friend also frequents. Mixing dull exercise with some girly chit-chat will probably help me stick around better. I guess joining this gym will be money well-spent, because I know some celebrities who have gotten excellent results there! I consider even getting some advice and motivation-boost from a personal coach – a thing I've never done before.
… drink more green smoothies and fresh vegetable juices. How about some celery juice, sounds good? I already have a juicer that has not gotten much use. It's time to dust if off and start drinking those vitamin-packed health-boosting fresh juices! Besides being healthy I'm sure it will be helpful achieving that weight-loss goal. I may even try a fresh juice fast or detox week, but I'm not committing to that yet :P
… improve the condition of my hair and let it grow. Right now it's shoulder-length and quite brittle and damaged. I invested into good hair dryer with ionic technology a few months ago. Then I managed to haul some good hair products at the end of last year, when they arrive it's time to put them to use. Also, after two at-home hair-colouring disasters in the end of last year, I need a professional dye job badly and I'm going to get it in a few weeks.
… keep up the empties project. So far, it has been going really well! I can already see some free space on my bathroom shelves. Update to come soon!
… wear more makeup. Yeah, really! I have so much of gorgeous makeup and yet I sometimes rush out of the door with barely some mascara on. I want to start wearing complicated looks more often and shall try to find more time for doing makeup.
… wear high heels more often. Why be just plain, if you can be gorgeous, right?
… do some beauty shopping abroad and discover some more foreign brands. That's an easy promise to keep, because I love both shopping and travelling.
… sort out my wardrobe and lingerie drawer and throw away ratty old things. No need to explain that, I guess.
… not to let any vouchers I've bought expire unused. No need to explain that too.
… try to blog more regularly and throw some giveaways (hint: check back here in few days!).
… and last but not the least: hopefully make some friends among fellow beautyholics.
I guess that's all. When I counted the resolutions, there were exactly 12, not intentionally I swear :) To be frank, these are all very good resolutions, because I'd have to do all these things anyway, New Year or not :D
Have a very happy year 2012! Let all your wishes come true in the upcoming year of dragon!
For my lovely Estonian ladies:
Tavaliselt ma ei usu uusaastalubaduste andmisse ja pidamisse, aga tänavu hing suisa karjub muutuste järele. Kogemata kombel on lubadusi täpselt 12 (kui tore, et pole näiteks aasta 2020 :)). Ja õnneks puudutavad kõik mu uusaastalubadused tegevusi, mida peaksin lähiajal niikuinii ette võtma :)
Head uut draakoniaastat kõigile!
