Christmas Eve morning I dyed my hair since my husband had been asking me for a while to go blonder (I am blonde, but this is REALLY blonde!) See...
And it's funny, because that small change made such a difference. I felt better about myself, my husband loves it and I got loads of compliments on it. It made me realise I need to take more time out to do things like this for myself.
I have been 'trying' to lose weight all year. I had not fully committed myself though, well not as much as I could have. I did lose weight, but nowhere near what I wanted and I finished the year lighter than I started, but not the lightest I have been all year.
Upon reflection of this year I realised the reason I had not achieved some of the things I set out to do in 2011 (including the weight loss) was that I did not put myself first.
I have been so focused on finishing renovations, work and my kids (not that the focus on children is a bad thing) that I sort of neglected myself.
So for 2012 I want to do more for me.
This will include:
- Regular hair/beauty treatments. I do it myself, but never book the time with myself.
- Regular exercise. With daylight savings and finer weather I can get out and do more. I have already started walking more and doing some exercise at home.
- Complete some bucket list things. I want to travel a lot, but have not done anywhere near the amount of travel I would like, so I am looking at how I can change this.
- Focus on health. I want to switch to organic products, including food for the whole family.
What is your focus for 2012?
