New Year Update

1 comment:
I'm aware it's been, uh, forever and a day since my last blog post *sigh*. However, i'm determined to be more productive this year and I'd like to get back into the swing of writing regular blog posts. 

Aside from that, I've FINALLY decided to apply for my provisional driving license, wahoo! Last Monday I sat down and made myself complete the form online, and today I forced myself into the nearest photo booth to print some updated photos that I could send off to complete the application. 

To tell you the truth, it becomes a whole lot easier to be productive if you physically force yourself to do things. When given the choice, it's easy to sweep things to one side and say you'll do them later (when really, deep down you know you have no intention of doing them), so in order to actually get things done you must take control and tell yourself you're going to get these things done whether you like it or not so you can move on to the next task in hand.

As well as learning to drive, this year I'd like to become more active as a bid to feel fitter and healthier. To help make this happen, I purchased a cross trainer just before Christmas which I absolutely looove so far, as well as buying a lovely new pair of trainers to keep me motivated.

Aren't they pretty? I've always wanted to own a snazzy pair of Nike Free Runs and now I finally do! I believe these are the Free Run+3's in 'Fireberry Electric Green' (I love the names they use for the colours!) 

Apart from looking lovely, these trainers are so comfortable and extremely lightweight; two necesseties  if you're looking to take up running or exercise in general.

I always used to pick the plainest looking trainers and shy away from the jazzy, brightly-coloured ones, but now I like to embrace the brights! The pop of colour really brightens up your dark workout gear and makes exercising that little bit more fun.

I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas, what are your goals for 2015? 

P.S - sorry for the not-so-great quality of the photos, I used my iPhone instead of my DSLR!
