It seems like every year I resolve to lose weight, it's a constant goal. Since my previous weight loss I've regained about 10-14lbs over about a year. This frustrates me, but then I have to look back and realise how far I have still come. I'm still 35lbs (2.5 stone) less than I was at my heaviest weight and I've been through at lot so I need to not be so hard on myself. Not only would I like to lose the weight I've regained but I'd also like to change my relationship with food and improve my fitness and activity level so that weight maintenance becomes second nature. I'm going to try and get into yoga and it is supposed to be good for the mind and body.... apparently.
I've found studying really stressful this year and I've not enjoyed it very much, although I have stuck it out and now I only have a year left until I graduate. Not only would I love to up my grades a little, I also want to enjoy studying and not stress out so much over it. I'm determined to be a little more organised and less intimidated by the assignment questions.
Youtube & Blogging
One of my resolutions was to make a video every week this year, and so far I've managed that every week except one... I think. I'm really enjoying making videos opening up to you guys about my depression has made me realise how supportive and amazing this community can be. I now upload twice a week (tuesdays and fridays) and I basically just want to stick at this and work on the productions quality of my videos. As for blogging, I've been a little slack this year but I've up'd my game this month, and am aiming for post once a week. Hopefully I can stick to this as my blog is where this all started and I do love to write.
Family & Helping Others
Being kinder and helping others is always something which I aim to do, but when you are going through a hard time it is easy to forgot to help those around you. Before the end of the year I'd love to do something to raise money for charity and as many little things to help others or make their day as possible. This makes me feel good and them feel good, so it's a win win situation. I also want to try and appreciate the little things in life and spend more time with my family, particularly my older brother so only lives 2 hours away but I only see every 3 months or so.
Do you have any mid-year resolutions?
