Well here’s to 2016! I don’t know about you but the year 2015 wasn’t a really good year for me. At the beginning of the year I yet again decided it was time to eat better in hopes of losing weight. I looked back on my post from the beginning of the year and noticed that I’m actually up 5lbs from what I was this time last year. Totally failed on that avenue of losing weight and the struggle is very real folks. I’m the heaviest I have ever been and not really sure why since I’m always busy around the house cleaning. I’m assuming depression has a very big roll in it not to mention very bad eating habits between my husband and I. It is so easy to eat poorly because life is so busy. That is probably one of my biggest excuses.
For the new year I have many hopes of change. I’m now on day 2 of cutting out all fast food, sodas, chips and crap I used to eat before. I’m feeling pretty good about eating better because I have to. I’ve had over 30 years eating poorly so it’s time to change. I have hypertension which scares me and was finally diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and really scared about taking an injection to help slow down the progression. I know losing weight will help all of these health issues.
Another thing I’m doing different this year is getting rid or at least trying to rid of all negativity and negative people in my life even if it is family. Unfortunately on Christmas which is my most favorite holiday I was already feeling down and not like Christmas and someone from my husbands side of the family did something so stupid that it upset me pretty badly. I don’t know if Christmas will ever been the same again.
Another big change that is going to happen is with my blog. I was really hoping that I would have excelled and gotten better with traffic to my blog this past year since I am going on three years but haven’t really made it any where. I have found that reviewing items that are a low value is a really waste of my time and not really worth it to me. So this year I will be posting more personal posts about family, recipes, craft. I will still continue to bring my readers reviews that have giveaways included in them and sponsored posts.
My most important change that I will be making is having better relationships with my kiddos and husband by spending more quality time with everyone. Having a large family keeps everyone here really busy and sometimes we forget to take a moment and just spend time with one another without electronics and all that.
Do you have plans for 2016? Do you make resolutions? How was your 2015?
Until next time… have a beautiful day! =)
