2020 Personal Goals Review

At the start of the last year I set myself a mini bucket list; 20 goals for 2020, and although I started off well, sadly many of them were put on hold due to the worldwide pandemic. And most notably the UK lockdowns and tier systems. Even though when I first wrote then they were all achievable, I quickly found out it would be hard to achieve them all. 1 – Become Debt Free by the End of April 2020 ✔ If there’s one goal I wanted to achieve las5 year, it’s this one, and I’m so glad I did […]

2020 Goals Update

The first few months of the year started off well for me and I was feeling pretty positive about the year ahead. I was luckily enough to see one of my favourite bands – Slipknot – in concert at the end of January. And enjoyed a bunch of day trips in February and March too, including Crocodiles of the World and a ride on the Cheltenham ferris wheel – which I’d highly recommend! But then the pandemic hit and things went from positive to uncertain pretty rapidly. To be honest, I almost decided not to post my 2020 goals update, […]

My Adventure Goals *

AD | At the beginning of the year I set myself ‘20 goals for 2020‘. Most of these were lifestyle goals relating to wellness, getting outdoors more, and of course, local travel. So when I heard about AliKats’ bucket list challenge*, I was more than happy to get involved and share some of my adventure goals with you. Although this is a bucket list challenge it’s not just about ticking things off a list, but rather about experiencing new things, and creating some lifelong memories in the process. To be honest I don’t expect to conquer everything on it, but […]

20 Goals for 2020 (A Mini Bucket List)

Happy New Year! I hope Santa brought you everything you wished for and you all had a well deserved break. Typically I’ve started off the New Year with another cold which is exactly how I went into 2019. 🤧 But unlike 2019 (and the past few years to be honest), I’ve decided to set myself 20 goals for 2020. This has been greatly inspired by Britt who shared her 2020 bucket list at the end of year, then challenged others to do the same. Her list included a great mix of personal goals and inspired me to come up with […]

Moving back in with your parents as an adult. 

Moving back in with your parents as an adult can seem like a huge step backwards, you may feel like you’re losing your independence and you may experience ridicule or teasing from friends or other family members. Luckily the latter hasn’t happened for me but I think I would miss living in my own place. In reality, moving back home maybe the last thing you thought you’d do, but you’re doing it because you’re working towards a goal and have a family willing to offer you some support.  For us, it’s the right decision and will help us achieve our […]

Weight loss and fitness – one month in

It’s been a nearly a month since I started my new weight loss / healthy eating journey. I started back at Weight Watchers in the first week of January and had my first weight in where I found out I’d put on half a stone over Christmas! Since then I’ve been following the Smart Points plan religiously, only going over my daily points allowance twice. Weight Watchers believe in 80:20, i.e. if you’re good 80% of the time you will still have a weight loss but it will take longer to get to your goal. So far I’ve lost 3lbs […]
