So another year, another chance!

Firstly Happy New Year!

This year seems to be the year where I have to make some serious changes to the way I’ve been living for the last many years. It is sorta new year resolutions, but yeah, since those rarely get followed through, I just consider them goals. Which I guess is what a rasolution is, but whatever..

I’ve been a vegetarian for quite some years by now. And on my way home after a christmas vacation at my parents place i finally watched Cowspiracy. This movie is, end, lets just say powerfull! I am still sorta surprised over it, even though I kinda knew the message before watching it. But nevertheless it also put the final drop in my goal to go vegan. I signed up for the 30 day vegan challenge, link here, and the mails have some great ideas and are a nice reminder of an “easy” way to go vegan, offcourse the step is not that big when you are already vegetarian.. 😉 I put a few exceptions in my goal-list, which include I can eat all the vegetarian stuff already in my house, even more wastefull to just throw it away and I will allow myself vegetarian food while visiting friends. I’ll try to avoid it, but I also don’t want to force my choices over their heads.

Step two of my chance plan includes cutting down on alcohol, which I do enjoy, enjoy a lot to be fair, but with some more serious things going on in my life, it seems to be a smart choice to cut down the usage of alcohol. At this moment I’m still going strong with partying a minimum of once a week, including big amounts of alcohol.. So the goal is simple, a 3 month dry period! To be fair the real goal is 1 year, but i also know that I’m a sucker for small goals, so having a 3 month, 1/2 year and full year as goals should work a lot better for me! So hopefully that one will be good!

The third step is to excercise more. This is a general goal that I have been working on already for the last few months, since my shape is kinda bad and I want to be more serious with the other stuff I’m doing. I’m just focussing on getting used to running right now, since my first run gave me a two week pain break. But it is slowly going better!

Highly inspired by Hannah Wittons New Year Resolution 2016 video, I will also try to read more, I can’t go with 50 book challenge, since I have enough school related reading to do, but I’ll try to make it a book a month. I know the reading as a way to relax is simply great! Good for the imagination! Just great for getting rid of the daily stress!

I will still try to record and upload more, but that is a less serious goal at this moment, since I have no idea where my vlogging camera is, or well, actually it is the charger I am missing!

I will also try to get back on twitter, but I cannot really promise I’ll do that. Somehow it seems that I do it for a bit, and the I just forget about it, simply to busy with being alive in the real world! 😉
