“Sorting my Life out” Update…

So a few weeks ago, or so I thought, turns out this was over a month ago – oops, I started the journey of “sorting my life out“, I put this in inverted commas just in case it doesn’t in fact sort my life out!

This was my plan, in no particular order;

  1. Start exercising
  2. Organise / de-clutter
  3. Clothes – go through everything and sell what I have stacked up. I think I would like to do this via a Blog Sale on here! But I might get rid of some bits via ebay?!
  4. Make up – Sort and organise. I have just re-arranged my bedroom (again) and now have a lil’ space for a dressing table, I don’t want to store all my make-up on here, it’s currently all tucked away nicely in a drawer, but I’m itching to get some Muji acrylic stacking drawers to sit on top and showcase some of my must-haves/most-used items, as well as a pot for some of my brushes.
  5. Detox – I’m thinking about either going on a bit of a juice diet, as per the Juice Master, Jason Vale’s “7lbs in 7 days” plan or joining Hello Fresh and simply eating really well for a couple of weeks.
  6. Start eating breakfast again! I never used to be able to last very long without breakfast, but I seemed to have replaced my trusty bowl of Weetabix/Porridge/Special K with a pretty large milky coffee.
  7. Start blogging more ritualistically – I thought I may have made this word up – apparently not : ) I love putting up posts and once I’m in the flow of it I’m fine, but with my lack of energy and motivation at the moment just thinking about sitting at the computer after work feels exhausting! I need a routine!
  8. Skincare – install a beauty routine.

I thought I wasn’t doing too well, however, after reading back over the list I can see that I have actually completed point 4! I’m simply waiting on a Christmas present that hasn’t arrived yet, which will be one of the finishing touches to my new dressing table area, and then I can share all with you. To remind you of what this is, please see my ‘What I got for Christmas’ post, it’s the white make-up caddy at the back – this was my sister’s one , which I borrowed for my photos.

I have also made a bit of a start on points 5, 7 and 8 (I mentioned this was in no particular order right?!)

Number 5, ok so detoxing it is not, but I have definitely been trying to eat better, this includes making rather than buying lunch for work, and drinking even more water than I usually do. Also I did have 2 juices on Sunday, as mention here!

Point 7 = I feel like the last few weeks I’ve really made an effort to put up posts, and I like the fact that I have a few ideas floating around in my head at the moment. I really want to start a schedule and do mass post-photos all at once and really get into a groove on this, but I have tried and failed to make schedules and plans when it comes too blogging and they have failed miserably, so I want to get into a bit of a flow before I try again.

Now number 8 only really started in the last few days, and again I want to share this with you when I hopefully have some results – so for now I will just leave it at that I think : )

Exercising lasted all of two days after this initial post, and when I say exercising I mean 100 sit-ups. I know, I know I’m rubbish! MUST TRY HARDER!!!

So for my satisfaction let’s look at the list again…

  1. Start exercising
  2. Organise / de-clutter
  3. Clothes – go through everything and sell what I have stacked up. I think I would like to do this via a Blog Sale on here! But I might get rid of some bits via ebay?!
  4. Make up – Sort and organise. I have just re-arranged my bedroom (again) and now have a lil’ space for a dressing table, I don’t want to store all my make-up on here, it’s currently all tucked away nicely in a drawer, but I’m itching to get some Muji acrylic stacking drawers to sit on top and showcase some of my must-haves/most-used items, as well as a pot for some of my brushes.
  5. Detox – I’m thinking about either going on a bit of a juice diet, as per the Juice Master, Jason Vale’s “7lbs in 7 days” plan or joining Hello Fresh and simply eating really well for a couple of weeks.
  6. Start eating breakfast again! I never used to be able to last very long without breakfast, but I seemed to have replaced my trusty bowl of Weetabix/Porridge/Special K with a pretty large milky coffee.
  7. Start blogging more ritualistically – I thought I may have made this word up – apparently not : ) I love putting up posts and once I’m in the flow of it I’m fine, but with my lack of energy and motivation at the moment just thinking about sitting at the computer after work feels exhausting! I need a routine!
  8. Skincare – install a beauty routine… I have started this, I’ll keep y’all posted!

Strike through = Ticked off – Oh YEH!!

Grey = Started

Ok, so maybe my initial “I’m doing awful” thoughts were pretty accurate?!

Because I have been “working” on these since the end of November, I haven’t really thought about, or installed any New Year’s resolutions. So instead I’m going to think of these as my “new year, new me” goals.

What are your resolutions? And how are you going with them? Please tell me you’re as bad as I am…

Also I would love to know how you feel about this short update post? And the fact that I haven’t included any photos? To blah for you?
