Happy New Year + HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT | My 2019 New Year’s Resolutions & Looking back on 2018’s Resolutions

Happy 2019! Is anyone else in complete denial that the year is over?! I always feel like it goes by so fast, but if you think back to who you were in the beginning on 2018 you have changed so much. I know some people make fun of New Year’s Resolutions, but I love them! I like any excuse to start fresh and make new goals, I think that’s part of the reason I actually like Mondays! I have posted my resolutions on my blog every year since 2015 – you can read them below and see how much I have changed!

My 2015 Resolutions, 2016 Resolutions, 2017 Resolutions, and 2018 Resolutions posts!

My 2018 Resolutions – How did I do?

1. Say yes to new opportunities. I feel like I finally did this towards the end of the year! I worked with a ton of new local businesses and I was good about saying yes more!

2. But also learn to say no when you mean no. I have always been pretty good at this, but I was actually not so great this year. I think I pushed myself with being sick a lot when I should have been resting.

3. Travel. I went to Knoxville, Vegas, Scottsdale, Vegas again, Bora Bora, Tetiaroa, Nashville, Kentucky, and Colorado!

4. Save money. I did better than previous years, but need to work on this more!

5. Have a consistent morning routine that starts your day off right and work on my current consistent night routine that gets me ready for bed. I did pretty good at this, but still want to incorporate a few things and be consistent!

6. Only eat dairy on the weekends and try to only eat plant based/stick to calorie goals on the week days. I did so good at this in the beginning of the year, but in the fall and winter I kind of fell off the wagon.

7. Do something active every day. Definitely did not do this…

8. Get on a normal sleeping schedule on the week nights. I did okay at this!

9. Go to networking events and say yes to local opportunities. Be better at connecting with other bloggers. YES! I went to three events towards the end of the year and I am so proud of myself!

10. Post a video weekly. Nope, I want to post more videos in 2019 though!

11. Work at my desk instead of the couch or in bed. I was good about this half of the time, but still want to work at this!

12. Get better at being ahead on blog posts. This came in waves, sometimes I was ahead and sometimes I was scrambling haha!

13. Learn to push myself. I definitely pushed myself, I am really proud of that!

14. Keep growing  personally, emotionally, and in my passions. I grew so much this year, definitely my best year yet!

15. Read these goals daily. I did not do this, I had printed them out to read and I actually broke the frame they were in so and never replaced it!

My 2019 Resolutions

1. Save Money

Putting this one on here first because I am horrible at this! I think I have always just made the excuse “well I am only 20…” “well I am only 21…” the last few years. I have some savings built up, but I hate thinking back on some of the meaningless things I bought when I could have just saved the money. I move out of my apartment after this semester and back in with my family so I have no excuse not to be saving!

2. Say Yes to New Opportunities

I was good about this towards the end of 2018 and it is really something I want to continue! I have two blog events coming up and I can’t wait to go to more, meet new people, and grow!

3. Stick with Only Eating Dairy Once a Week

For a good price 75% of last year I was super good at not eating dairy (I am lactose intolerant). However, towards the end of the year and the holidays I started eating it a lot. I feel so much better when I am not eating dairy so I need to work on this.

4. Have a Healthier Year

Some things in 2018 were out of my control (such as getting mono), however, I really want to work on eating healthier and working out this year. I don’t want to drink as much in 2019 and also cut down on eating out.

5. Learn to Love Working Out

Speaking of working out, I want to learn to love it again! Instead of just saying “workout more” in 2019, I want to try new classes, and find things I actually enjoy doing. I want to set myself up for success!

6. Get on a Good Schedule

I was pretty good at this in 2018, but I have a lot of new projects coming and I need to work on getting ahead and staying ahead! I am going to put up a post soon explaining my new blogging schedule and also how I personally schedule my life!

7. Stick to my Morning Routine and Night Routine

I want to remember to wash my face, take my vitamins, and also take some time to relax everyday either in the morning or at night. I just started reading again and I really want to take the time to shut my brain off from multitasking and just focus on that!

8. Read a Book a Month

This may not seem like a lot, but I am a slower reader and I wanted to make my goal realistic. Like I said above, I want to take the time to just slow down and focus on one thing.

9. Keep Growing

In relationships, as a person, my blog, and my Instagram.

10. Travel

I went to so many amazing places in 2018 and I can’t wait to see where life takes me this year!

11. Minimize my Life

I will always be someone that has a lot of clothing, but I hate clutter and I need to donate and sell a lot of stuff! I am going to work on that this week to start the year off right!

12. Open an Online Boutique

This is a little secret I have been keeping for awhile, I am opening a boutique in 2019!

 

 

Announcement!

Wahoo! Like I said above, this year I am opening an online boutique! Some of you actually guessed it when I hinted about a new project last month. I am so excited! I am a person that when I decide I want to do something, then I want to do it RIGHT AWAY and won’t be able to stop thinking about it. I really want to take it slow and do everything right though. I am still woking through the legal steps right now, but I am going to do a name reveal soon!

    Lauren! I’m so excited and happy for you! How freaking awesome! PS- I absolutely love your resolutions. So many of them are things that I want to accomplish, like learning to love working out again and establishing/sticking to a morning/evening routine. Wishing you the absolute best in 2019, babe!
