2015; a plan of action.

I hate new years resolutions, don't get my wrong, the idea of setting goals and making plans is a positive one, but the term resolutions is just so synonymous with failure and not quite achieving things that it is just depressing.
So with this in mind I am deciding on a plan of action, things I WILL achieve in 2015.

Save, save save - in 2014 I finally managed to get myself completely debt free and start saving, so I want 2015 to be the year I get some real savings behind me. It is going to be a bit of a challenge as for most of the year I'll be receiving only statutory maternity pay, which brings me to my next plan of action...

Frugal is my middle name - meal planning, bargain hunting, less waste. I want to get organised, plan meals, keep costs low, sell on ebay... I want to keep my expenditure to a minimum and get frugal to help me save, save, save!

Healthy mummy, happy mummy - No, I am not setting weight loss goals or making myself miserable on a fad diet, I want to eat better as I am breastfeeding and all the good things I eat get to Zoe through my milk, I want to keep fit and active, get out of the house, meet other mummys, go to classes; a healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body.

Feed my creativity - I am a creative person, I love to design, create, bake, sew, craft etc... I want to feed my creativity more in 2015. I want to get in the kitchen and bake again, get back into illustration, get sewing some bits and bobs for Zoe, knit, learn to crochet.

Blog more - I sorely neglected my blog during 2014, with the pregnancy and newborn it just didn't take any sort of priority. In 2015 I want to blog more, not just about food, but more family posts, more creative posts. I want my little corner of the interwebs to be a reflection of me, without worrying about what others think or how it will be received.

So there you have it, now I have written them down I feel very positive about being able to follow this action plan. Have you set yourself some goals for 2015? I'd love to hear how you feel about resolutions.

    You said it perfectly Nelly - and plan of action is much the better option!!! Yours appear to me to be perfectly within scope and have a level of joyousness about them. I also do not make resolutions. Each year begins with the prayer that it will improve on the one before it, be it from education, sharing, ....whatever! This works great because one can also look back and think what HAS been learned, what CAN be done better and so on. Your little set here is tending to exactly this approach. Here's to you actioning out your plans. Blessings, YAM xx
