Last year was a year of obtaining big life goals for me – Ian and I moved flat into our first home owned together and I get a new job, taking my career further in the direction I want to go. All of my time was taken up achieving these first two things and didn’t leave much room for anything else. However, a year into our new flat and nearly five months into my new job I want to re-focus onto my own health and well-being.
I was chatting about this while out for brunch with friends and came up with naming this overhaul ‘Project Suzie’. My friend Ryan found this hilarious and suggested I had a branded t-shirt to wear – fair enough, it might sound a bit daft but calling it ‘Project Suzie’ has helped my focus my thoughts on what I want out of life, how I want to feel and what steps I need to take to get me there. I did however draw the line at the tshirt…I’m not sure how that would’ve gone down with the many bodybuilders in my local gym!
As a compulsive list maker, a comprehensive list was my first stop and the main points featured were:
- Get fitter and healthier (exercise more and eat better!)
- Develop my hobbies and interests
- Socialise more
- Revamp my look (make more effort with makeup, skin/ hair care and clothes)
- Pass my driving test
Over the coming months, the majority of my posts will undoubtedly fall into this project/ overhaul in some way or other, which I really hope will make both an interesting read but also help keep my focused on achieving my goals!
I’ve made progress on all fronts already; just starting this blog is helping me develop my interests and hobbies. I’ve started eating better and am generally being a bit more active (though lots more to be done on that front) and have let Ian drag (I mean encourage!) me out driving a few times to get over my fear of actually being in control of two tons of metal going at speed. I’ve become utterly obsessed with reading beauty blogs and watching You Tube videos (my favourite bloggers and vloggers will be linked at the side) and am forming a better idea of what beauty products might suit me and the direction I want my style to take.
So, after all that, let Project Suzie commence, and I’ll let you know how I get on!
