Goals for the year 

Every year you should set yourself goals to reach, this can be anything! 

Places you want to see, people you want to meet, where you want to go in your career, fitness goals and many more. 

Today I will share with you my goals for the year and certain things I believed I lacked on last year. 

Number one,

Fitness, last year I worked so hard at the start of the year to get my body back in shape and I was doing so well untill I went on holiday and then I just gave up! What a waste. So this year I have promised myself that I will stick to it. I have joined the gym and started doing exesize DVDs and workouts from home. Rust has also been a big help as he really encourages me to go for my goal and he has been going on runs with me and supporting me though it! I have also been eating a lot healthier recently and once again I will stick it. Lean in 15- this book is amazing and all the recipes in there are so easy to make and taste amazing! 

Number two, 

Do what I enjoy. I need to stop putting everyone else before me for a change and actually think about myself, I’m going to be selfish! Haha. Everyone deserves to have some ‘me’ time and I believe it makes you appreciate life a lot more. My goal is to spend time with myself and people around me doing things that I enjoy and making amazing memories 🙂 

Number three, 

Further my career. I believe that I work extremely hard at what I do and I really enjoy it. So this year I am pushing myself to the next level. In anyway I can I will make the most out of my job, because at the end of the day who wants to be doing something their not happy with? 

Number four, 

Relationships. It’s time to focus on the people that mean most to me. Spending quality time with the people that are always there and taking no one for granted. Family, boyfriend and friends. Everyone deserves to have a good network around them. 

Number five, 

Finances. The boring one. I MUST set myself the goal to save save save!!  This time next year I want to be ready to purchase mine and rustys house and then get ready to set off and see the world! 

Number six, 

And finally, I need to set a goal to love myself. 

In life I believe you won’t get anywhere if you continue to be unhappy with yourself. Everyone has flaws and no one is perfect. Ignore what everyone looks like and ignore what everyone else is doing. Live your life the way YOU want and don’t worry about anyone else. You’re perfect just the way you are. (I need to tell myself this haha) so from now I need to stop worrying about life and understand that nothing is ever going to be perfect. Just be grateful for who you are and what you have. 🙂

  
lots of love x

IM BACK

960bbfd4b58412ac27a850985978b859

BUSY BUSY BUSY, and breathe.

Im back, for good! I promise 🙂

This year has flown by already, 3 months down, and guess who’s birthday it is in just over a week… MINE.

The big 22, it will actually give me an excuse to go around singing..

I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT IM FEELING 22!! without people thinking i’m stupidly obsessed with taylor swift.

Im at that age now where its so hard to pick what you actually want for your birthday. When i was a child i could sit and literally circle 10,000 items in the Argos catalog.. now the only thing i could need from there is some pots and pans. Not particularly something i would like to receive for my birthday though.

So this year i think i will leave it down to my mum to find something nice as she is pretty good at that.

Life is going pretty swell at the moment, i had a rough end to last year again and ended up in hospital on numerous occasions but lets not dwell on the past!

Me and the Boyf have booked a holiday to Mexico in June which is going to be incredible. I have never been there before and we have found the perfect hotel with the perfect location. We will also be celebrating our 1 year anniversary out there, how cute.

AND i have only just realised that i will be able to swim with dolphins out there which is such a huge dream of mine!

Lots of things have been changing in the past few months, i’ve been extremely busy with work, we had a lovely christmas with all the family. Started saving for my mortgage, Me and Rust hope to buy at the start of next year, then possibly go off and travel the world. We have also been away a lot in London recently, before christmas we went to Winter Wonderland which was so much fun, i would definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn’t been before, it really gets you in the christmas spirit!

So many exciting plans ahead and i cant wait to share them all with you 🙂 Let me know what you guys have been up to and if you have any exciting plans for the year ahead!

lots of love x

Boardmasters 2015

This was by far one of the best festivals i have ever been to!

Rust, Beth, Jake and myself booked it last minute for Jakes 22nd Birthday thinking the weather was going to be terrible.. and we ended up sunburnt.. result haha!

It was a 2 1/2 hour drive down to Newquay where the festival was held, right on the beach front.

We set up our tents and decided to have a nap as we were up at stupid o’clock for the drive down. (OAPS) HA..

We arrive on the Thursday morning and the festival itself didn’t actually start until the Friday, so we headed down to the beach where they were holding Surfing Competitions. We sat on the beach having a few drinks then headed back up the hill to the festival and stopped in a bar where we had some more drinks..

That night they had a few rides going and the silent disco, we started by sitting around the tent playing card games and some more drinking..

Friday the music started and this carried on until sunday night with the last act, Bastille… which was INCREDIBLE.

We chose to leave Sunday night after Bastille so we would miss all the queuing in the morning to leave the festival. We got home about 3am Monday morning and me and Rusty spent the whole day sleeping and eating so much food haha.

2 really odd things happened to us whilst we were there.. On the Friday night we were waiting to watch Faithless and the boys went to get us some drinks whilst we saved our spot.. they got back and Beth needed to go to the loo so we left them there, as we were trying to get out of this massive crowd something really odd happened (laughing trying to type this).. It was like a human tsunami.. but not a normal one? if that makes sense haha… it wasn’t like anyone got pushed, just out of the blue everyone kind of fell over.. like a bomb had gone off.. it was HILLARIOUS, but it probably doesn’t sound as funny on here.. you had to be there ok. haha. We got back to the boys expecting our drinks.. yet they were covered in them instead.

On the Saturday we were watching Clean Bandit whilst waiting for Rudimental to start.. and this is really embarrassing on our behalf, there was this man stood a few feet in front of us wearing all denim.. including denim shoes and a hat.. we found it hilarious as we were drunk.. and decided to name him, denim on denim on denim. (yeah cringe) anyway.. we are watching Rudimental and all of a sudden… denim on denim on denim is on the stage singing.. he’s only part of Rudimental isn’t he. How awkward.

RACE FOR LIFE ♡

Back in March i decided that this year after many years of saying i will do it, this year WILL BE the one. I WILL sign my self up and i WILL run!

After changing my life around this christmas i told myself this year i would work on me and get myself back into fitness. And what a perfect way to make myself train?! I knew if i had something to work towards i would definitely make myself do it.

I couldn’t afford a gym membership, but to be honest there are many other ways of getting yourself fit without the gym.

My weekly routine:

Monday: Fitness DVD

Tuesday: Run

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: Fitness DVD (Extra Abs)

Friday: Body weight exercises

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: Yoga and Run

This sunday just gone, me, my mum, my best friend and her mum ran race for life.

It was for such a good cause and the turn out was amazing! To think that was only one area of the country.

I managed to run the majority of it and the four of us went through the finish line together 🙂

I will carry on training and will be signing myself up to many more races including race for life next year!

Things to be thankful for 

 
In life we tend to focus on the things we don’t have rather than the things we do have.

When you think about it there are a lot of things surrounding you that you can be thankful for which you may take for granted on a daily basis.

1. Your parents. They brought you into this world and they do love you more than you probably think.

2. Pets. Unconditional love.

3. Good health. Even if you’re feeling under the weather, just think you are always better off than someone else and you should be extremely thankful for that.

4. Money. A few pounds makes you richer than a lot of people in this world.

5. Having a home. Having a place to call home, no matter where it is, you should be thankful.

6. Laughter. 🙂

7. Sunshine. Bringing warmth to your day.

8. Time. You always think theres not enough of it.

9. Waking up today.

10. Clean water. Many people lack the access to clean water. Be greatful you have it in your home.

11. Love.

12. The freedom to vote. Never take your right to have a say for granted.

13. Sunsets. Enjoy the simple things in life.

14. Security.

15. Breathing fresh air.

I could carry on forever, as there are so many little things that effect our day to day life which we take for granted.

Remember the simple things 🙂

what are the little things that annoy you?

So today whilst I’m sat in a hospital bed bored of out my mind I thought I would write a post on the things that bug me in life!

You may agree, or you may disagree.. everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

let me know what annoys you the most!

1. TRAFFIC. – Nothing worse than taking a short journey and then you end up spending double the amount of time in your car due to traffic.

2.Mess – I don’t understand how certain people can be so messy?! how does it not make you angry.

3. When people think they are fat, and intact they are tiny. –  YEAH YOU’RE BLOODY MASSIVE. Just shut up. you are not fat, end of.

4. People walking slow in front of me. – Why did you bother over taking me if you’re going to change your mind and walk at snail pace?

5. People who are late. – Start telling them an hour earlier, then they tend to turn up just on time.

6. People that eat really loudly. – Please just be quiet.. it’s not attractive

7. Fake people. – Why say one thing to someone and something different to another? being 2 faced gets you no where.

8. Chavs – I could rant forever. WHY DO YOU DO THE THINGS YOU DO. no, i do not want to hear your rubbish music as I’m walking down the street, that is what head phones are for.

9. People that drive really close behind you – First of all I’m doing the speed limit so get off my ass and calm down.

10. Trains – Why is it that every train i get on is delayed by at least 10 minutes?!

11. People that are constantly on their phone – Get a life. what did you do before you had that phone?

12. Breaking a nail. – Well I was growing that until it broke off and now it looks stupid compared to the others.

13. Bad hair days – Why are you doing this to me? I grew you myself and this is how you repay me.

14. Hot days when you’re working. – No thank you. I do not want to see your sunbathing selfie whilst I’m working inside sweating over a hair dyer.

15. People that get given everything. – Learn to get a job and welcome to the real world 🙂

16. Slow internet – Why am I paying for something that is wasting my time?

17. Insomnia – That’s cool, I didn’t really want to go to sleep tonight.

18. When you don’t know the name of a song!- Happens all the time, you know the lyrics but not the name!

19. Drying up – Longest job in the world.

20. Cyclists – Why are you cycling in the middle of the road knowing full well that there is a massive que of traffic trailing behind you.. it’s not like I have anywhere to be.

21. Algebra – Thank you very much maths teacher for failing me because it’s really ruined my life so far, probably used it everyday since I left school.

22. Applauding in the cinema – Just no? Be quiet I’m trying to watch a film.

23. Kids that own apple products. – At your age I was outside drawing on the pavement.

24. Biting your tongue – Ouch.

25. Standing on a plug – Again ouch.

26. Dirty touch screen devices – Clean your screen please as I cannot see anything.

27. People who have no respect for you and others. – It’s called manners, and it’s not hard.

28. Defrosting my car. – One thing I dread every morning in the winter, gets worse when it’s on the inside of your window too.

29. How cold it is when you get out of the shower – Just had the hottest shower ever to jump into my room AKA Antarctica.

30. When my makeup won’t set on my nose. – All girls will agree.. why is my nose still red after applying 7 layers of makeup.
