New Year, New You?



A new year is a fresh start for many of us. We set ourselves goals, create lists of ways to improve ourselves as partners and parents and we think of ways to better our lives in general.... so, what are your resolutions for 2014?


My word for 2014 is GIVING.

Giving more to others
Giving more to myself
Giving more to my family

  • I plan to exercise more frequently, improve my diet and indulge a little more when it comes to pampering. I definitely haven't taken care of myself as much as I should've the past few years so it's time to give up neglecting myself and give back to my body.

  • 2013 was amazing in terms of family fun. We had several camping trips, holidays, days out and we got stuck in with plenty of baking and crafts. I want this year to be equally as good, if not better, and I'm already booking activities in to look forward to. Giving time to family is so important.

  • I'm raising funds for the Lullaby Trust (they provide support for families that have lost a baby) for January by not consuming alcohol or chocolate until February. I'll be doing a variety of things throughout the year to help other worthy causes and I'll also be arranging a raffle for charity.

  1. My New Year's resolution is to waste less food and plan out my meals on a weekly basis like you do. I am now making a list of what I need to buy in based on my meal plan and I am determined not to buy items on impulse that will probably end up being forgotten about and then thrown out! I am now also making use of leftovers - so hopefully I will spend and waste less and save more!
