Goals, in depth.

Lose weight - I am overweight. I accept that, and as far as confidence and self esteem goes I have it to the point of arrogance. I know I'm gorgeous and super curvy, but I also know that I am carrying too much weight, it's not healthy and I want to change that. 4/5 stone loss is my goal and will put me at a healthy weight.

Tone up - exercise goes hand in hand with losing weight, even simple things like walking more. Why lose the weight and still wobble?!

Eat better in general, mostly vegetarian, because I like it better and don't feel great about eating animals. I don't like meat very much in general and lose weight better following the Slimming World (SW) plan on green - carbs, carbs, carbs! :D

Read more ;) classics, modern, poetry, smut, everything and anything. I've always read lots, books are my passion, but I want to read more. More classics, more poetry, more everything.

Get a job - a must, difficult as it has been so far I'm not going to give up. I've been in university, but having just graduated and being out of work for over a year I want to work, I want my own money. I'm bored when I don't have some kind of work to do, and can't focus on my writing as well knowing I don't have any source of income.

Write a novel. Or two. (Dreaming big here). It's going to happen. I have about five projects going on, some a lot longer than others that will be getting more attention, and one massive project that I've been writing for years and now need to re-write. 

This may seem boring but to me it's important, I don't know if anyone will ever read this, but that's okay. Because I need this in my life.

That's all for now, I'm sure everything will get more exciting when I've laid down the basics and start getting somewhere.

  1. Hey there! Liked the post - good to see you setting some goals for yourself.

    I write full time, and have only recently started "working" as well, just so I can have some extra money. I only do about 6 - 8 hours a week, but on a good week can earn £60, which is hardly life changing, but it's a start!

    Good luck with everything!

  2. Thanks so much! Can't really see the point in denying it's the only thing I really want to do.

    Oh wow, it doesn't matter how much it is, something is always better than nothing. Just after I posted this I got a call for a job interview, so it's all starting at least!

    Thanks, you too.
