2012 New Year's Resolutions

Wow, I can't believe this year is nearly over!  At the end of 2011 I decided to set myself some resolutions for the first time in a long time.  In this post I am going to have a look over them and see how I got on, whether I actually managed any!

  • Get back into reading, been slacking so bad recently!  My new Kindle will help though I think :D
I was aiming to read 40 books this year and I'm very close to my goal, not 100% sure if I'll manage it but I am pretty pleased with this nonetheless!  It was harder than I thought, even though I love reading I am quite slow haha.

  • Get to bed before midnight on uni nights.
Hmm...  This didn't really happen, I've been much better though I think! I am usually settled down by 1am which isn't too bad I don't think :)

  • Try to be more motivated for uni and read my notes etc. at the time…
We can pretty much veto this one to be honest hahah!  Although I did pass the two exams I sat in August so that was good going!

  • Be able to give blood, uch, I will at least try!
I am still underweight, I don't think I will ever be able to because I don't want to put on weight unless it's in muscle!  I am quite short and small built so I'm physically not meant to weigh much without being/feeling unhealthy!

  • Get back to callanetics and pole dancing and go to at least one kettle bells class!
Yes, yes, yes!  I joined my local leisure centre so I have unlimited access to classes, I've tried lots of new things as well and feeling great!  I love exercise!

  • Be better at saving again even if only putting a little bit away every month.
When I cut my hours I could only afford to put £25 away, if that - better than nothing though!  I've increased them again now though and I put the majority of my birthday money away too so it's looking good.  Hopefully I can use it for a holiday or something next year.
  • Continue to cut down meat consumption.
Only eating fish now!
  • Ironically - spend less time on social networking sites….
Nooo... Although probably using Facebook and Tumblr a lot less.  I'm still as addicted to Twitter as ever though haha!

I also did update of these back in March which you can find here if you're interested!
