But. I love new beginnings. I love a clean slate. And I have quite a few goals for this year and I'm hoping to bring a better structure to my day and spend more time doing what I love doing.
These are the goals, that I hopefully will stick with for longer than 9 days.
- Run or walk every day. My SO loves running. Not me. But we've got two dogs, and they love when they get to run along. I often choose the lazy version to tire out my dogs and throw a ball for hours while listening to podcasts. This year, I'd like to go for either a run or a walk every single day. Make a habit of it.
- Write a 1000 words every day. Make a habit of it as well. I write a lot, but I also stare at blank pages a lot. Instead of staring, writing... that's the goal.
- More Blogging. I need more ideas for things I can blog about. Hit me with ideas! Please!
- 104 books. I managed to finish my goal this year. I'd like to try again in 2017.
I did actually finish my 104 books. I wasn't sure I'd managed and it's almost midnight. But I am done! My favorite books in 2016:
I hope everyone had happy holidays. We spent most of it in pajamas eating ham and cheese and drinking Sherry. Like an old British couple!
Happy New Year Everyone!
HAPPY NEW YEAR OLIVIA!! Also convey my wishes to your SO, your family and your furry friends (Also running or walking with them is an awesome resolution!!) And yes, I need to start writing properly too! I always research like crazy but by the time I've started writing it's meh. I wanna change that this year! More blogging is AWESOME! You must check out Top Ten Tuesday Olivia :) The ideas are so much fun <3 Also you could do discussion posts (Why you love a certain book, how certain books changed your life, Why so and so is your favourite genre, )bookish lists, and so much more ^_^ And that sounds like a fantastic way to celebrate new year :P (Also just asking, will you be taking part in my diverse read-a-thon?) Happy new year again :DReplyDelete
Thank you very much :) I will check out Top Ten Tuesday! And, I was hoping to be able to participate in the diverse read-a-thon, yes. Happy New Year!Delete
Yay! I hope you do and about the read-a-athon question you'd asked over at my blog, yes any book that fits the category / criteria is perfect. I just added a couple of books I know to maybe help those who couldn't find books in the criteria :)Delete
Happy New Year!!! Those are great books you read! And what fantastic resolutions - running is an excellent idea, and so is writing; that's so disciplined, hope it works out :)ReplyDelete
All the best for 2017, and I look forward to many more blog posts from you! <3
Thank you! Thank you so much for all the wishes. And I hope 2017 treats you with kindness and success!Delete
Happy new year! Fitness and me just don't go together. I will be happy in my cosy hobbit hole, thank you very much. But I do swim in the summers so maybe that counts? The Raven Boys was my favourite too! Great post! ;)ReplyDelete

Pssst, secret: I don't like fitness. I think part of why I own dogs is so I'm forced to move. And swimming counts! Happy New Year!Delete
Congrats on meeting your book goal of the year - and good luck with it in the new year; I hope you have many great reads ahead of you.ReplyDelete
I don't tend to make resolutions anymore, however I do set myself a few bookish goals. Good luck with your resolutions - I think the key to keeping them is thinking of them more as lifestyle commitments than new year resolutions.
Happy 2017 - I hope it proves to be a better one!
I usually am not a big fan of resolutions. However the new year always offers a clean slate and I feel like I can try again. So, I do kind of like that aspect... Happy New Year! And thank you!Delete
