My Goals for 2016

my goals for 2016
I really can't believe its 2016 already, for me 2015 came and went far to quickly and was probably the fastest year yet for me. In 2015 I achieved quite a lot even though not everything I have high hopes that I can do them this year though and I also have new goals that I have set myself and hopefully would like to achieve them and also with 12 months to achieve them I have a good chance.

So what happened in 2015
In 2015 me and my family moved from a small town in Cumbria to one of the largest cities in the UK- Glasgow and believe me it was a big change form me and now that we have been here nearly a year its still a big difference but we are settling well and know new people and have visited new places too. I do miss living in a smaller town at times though and of course I do miss living near my mum who I miss seeing.
 Goals for 2016
  •  Take my family on holiday - Me and my family went to beach last year and hopefully this year I would like to go with to my family to Alton towers as I am sure they would love Cbeebies land. I would also to a few other places around the UK such as the lake district but not sure where yet but will decide in near future.
  • Get fitter and loose Weight - Over the last year I put on well over 3 stone and with a little bit of luck I would like to loose some of that. I would also really like to get myself fitter and get myself to a size 10-12. I am also keen to do a marathon this year like I did in 2014, unfortunately I missed out doing one in 2015.
  • Improve my photos - I love taking photos and would like to get my photos to look that extra bit better this year. I think I improved greatly last year but for me they is always room for improvement with photography
Do more arts and crafts  -  Last year I did a lot of painting and drawing with the kids and they just love it. This year I am also planning learn new skills myself such as how to knit again and also drawing/sketching again. I used to knit a couple of years ago but I gave up, hopefully this time I will be more patient with it and learn to knit new things. As for sketching and painting they are things I have always looked and I also have so many pencils etc, I just haven't got round to using them as much as I would like too, so hopefully I will soon.
  • Share everything positive about being Vegan - They is quite a lot of negative media about being vegan out their and a lot of o how its hard to be vegan. I want to put my mark out their to show people its easy to be vegan and also how positive it is too. I am also writing a guide to cruelty free beauty and other posts similar to that and they will be on my blog as soon as possible.
  •  Try some new foods - I must admit I am not used to making tofu even though I am vegan and I usually just eat beans, lentils other vegan alternatives, I am looking forward to trying to make different recipes this year containing tofu and also other vegan dishes. Last year I went to a vegan friendly restaurant and I am planning to go to a few more in 2016.
  •  Improve my Blog - hopefully I can continue posting regular and posting good content and sharing all things positively vegan. I love my blog at the moment and like sharing what I love and will continue.
