|Surely it must be easier to photo food than these three boys!?!|
1. Continue going to the gym and try and make healthier choices.
The gym is really important to me. For my sanity more than anything. I worked out years ago that I had to do classes as I have no self discipline in the actual gym itself. My aim is to make it three times a week to a class. When it comes to eating, I just need to stop the snacks. I am a big picker. I have managed to stop before and I need to try and do it again.
2. Think about me more.
I am a typical Mum. For the last 9 years I have put myself behind 3 and often 4 other people. I need to make more time for me and not feel guilty about it.
3. Less social media between 3-7pm
This is a hard one for a blogger who works from home! You really can miss out on opportunities if you are offline for a few hours. However, getting a work/life balance is far more important. So I will aim to be online less at these times. Of course, if I am stuck in the park whilst the boys are playing and there is no one to talk to, I reserve the right to have a peek.
1. Improve my photography
I actually cringe at my old photos. Physically cringe. I know that improving my photography is important so that is top of my list. The lovely Nicky from Kitchen Sanctuary recommended an online book from Pinch Of Yum. I have bought this and also booked on a photography session with a local photographer. Hopefully, you will see a difference in my photographs in the coming weeks.
|This is my latest food photo. If it whets your appetite then it will be up on the blog tomorrow.|
Two years ago I said I would start vlogging. Whilst I have a you tube channel, I really need to post more regularly. I am going to aim for once a week. If you have any ideas of vlogs you would like to see, please let me know in the comments!
3. Make an effort to meet other bloggers
Last year I decided that I needed to meet more bloggers. It is actually really great being surrounded by other people that get blogging and vlogging. I went to a number of blogging conferences last year and got something out of each one. Mumsnet was the most inspiring for me and I am hoping to go again next year.
So there are my goals. All achievable. I hope. What are your goals for 2017?
