I can’t believe it’s 2015!

So this is Christmas, and what have you done? Another year over, and a new one just begun.

~ John Lennon

Well I for one, am happy to welcome the new year! Not that 2014 was really bad. Just long. I see a lot of people outlining each month of 2014 however I have no posts from January and February 2014 and can’t even remember what went on in those months and I don’t have the energy to go back and look through each month. I might do a post like that later this week, maybe.

So instead I am just going to outline what I am hoping for in 2015. Wow! 2015! Can you believe it? I remember being younger and the year 2015 just seemed like something sci-fi. Something that just would never happen. Why? I don’t know. I just could not imagine that far ahead. It felt like something out of a Jetsons episode, though technically Jetsons was set in 2062. I looked it up!

My 2015 New Years Resolutions

1. Loose weight

I think this one is one tons of woman seem to think about. I think also it has been on all my “lists” if you could call them that. I haven’t even really had a list of New Years Resolutions in years. By the end of 2015 I would like to loose 50lbs, this is not really all that much, less then 1lb a week. Which is within a healthy range and brings me down to about 135-140lbs. I think I could be happy with that. I have a gym membership which I have been using some but not regularly. That has to change.

2. Eat healthier

This one fits in with the resolution above. I kinda feel like it is pointless to have one without the other. My goal is to follow a meal plan which I have set out for the next month as a test. I am only planning suppers right now. With work it is too hard to plan lunch. But I am figuring if I can take mainly leftovers for lunch then it will just be a leftover from the night before or the night before that. The meal plan for next month is with dishes we usually eat but more in proportion. One of our favorites is chicken breasts so I have that like 3 times a week, red meat twice a week, pork one night a week,  and one night of whatever we want, which for Cory likely means fish and me whatever happens to be in the cupboards or some leftovers. I am hoping to start looking up some new recipes to add into the rotation of meals for the following month.

3. Cook and clean more myself

I’m starting to notice a bit of a trend here. All health and well being related. I am not much of a cook. I can boil dry a pot of water really easily because I am super easily distracted. For instance while writing this post I am cooking super. Not really a great combination. However I am hoping to get better at cooking and Cory is a patient teacher. I also feel I am not pulling my weight with cleaning. I tend to just leave it to him because he is home all day. I shouldn’t be doing that though.

4. Moving

I am really hoping that we can look for and move into a new place. Be it an apartment or a house or flat of some sort. This apartment is just getting too small for us. I am tired of hiding the cat and I am tired of nosy neighbors. The apartment is not healthy for us. There is mold in the bathroom that we can not get rid of and things are starting to break down and stop working. It needs an overhaul which is not happening till we move out. So I hope we can get it together and find somewhere that fits more with our needs.

5 official source. Getting back into photography more

This one kinda hinges on me being able to get a new camera. I am waiting right now for my T4 so that I can get my taxes done and then I am going to use that money along with the money Cory gave me for Christmas I am going to buy myself a new camera and also renew my domain name and hosting for another year. I used to love going for drives and finding great places to take pictures but since my old camera stopped working correctly I haven’t even bothered going for drives.

6. Create and code a WordPress Theme for my blog from scratch

I have done this before, it’s just been a really long time. I tend to cheat lately and just use a pre-made theme that is close to what I want. I really want to make a nice base theme however from scratch that I can just make child themes for since I have learnt how to make child themes. Something that I can easily style with mostly css. Does anyone know any good tutorials? It’s been a long time since I have even tried.

Well that’s it really. I just have the 6 resolutions and I am hoping that I can really use this year to get some things in order and get onto a healthier track and drag Cory along with me. We both need to get back to healthy weights and need to start paying more attention to our health and not just sit at home and eat all evening.

As for what I have done in 2015? Nothing really. It was a very uneventful year. Nothing major happened that I can think of. Maybe when I look back through the posts of the year something might click.

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that it is 2015!

  1. Your New Year’s resolutions are great! Eating clean is one of my goals too.
    Yay about photography! You’re so good at it and definitely should do it more! As for WordPress themes, I started out on http://www.webhostingsearch.com/articles/create-your-own-wordpress-theme-tutorial.php but have used snippets from here and there. I’ve found that this is the best one to start with, that is the only one without a lot of unnecessary stuff.
    Good luck with all your goals!!

    1. Thanks Susanne. I have used that and got my main coding down… now to just work on the styling Which I hate! But someones gotta do it lol. And yes new years resolutions are great!

  2. I hope you have a great year and are able to do everything you want to. I would like to try and design a theme for my site as well. I haven’t done it in a long time either, but I am sure that we can!

    1. You always have such cute designs and much more intricate then anything I can put together. I tend to keep it simple because I have no idea how to do a lot of things. I love trying though. And thanks! I hope you have a great year as well and that it is everything that you hope for!

  3. 2014 wasn’t a bad year for me, either, but it definitely could have been better at some points. Thankfully, it got a lot better towards the end of the summer after I finally went for help with my life. I hope 2015 kicks ass for the both of us, though! Your goals are simple, and I love them I wish you the best of luck accomplishing them all if you can

    1. It’s hard too look back sometimes but it helps to see how far you have come. I have still not looked back on my year and (re)read my posts Something I hope to do soon. I hope that 2015 is great for you too and that accomplish and that it is everything that you hope and wish for!

  4. I tried to do number 6 a few months ago and I can’t really remember how to code. I feel bad for letting that skill go away but I really don’t have as much free time as I had when I was younger. I constantly dream about quitting my job and just staying unemployed for a month or two so I can get back at my hobbies haha.

    1. I am exactly the same. I just let it slide and now some of it is coming back but so much of it is not. I really feel a bit lost. I know bits and pieces but putting one together from scratch just seems so hard. I do have a whole theme coded and a child theme created but it has no styling whatsoever. I need to keep trying I know what you mean about quitting your job and getting back to hobbies. There was a point where I was on EI sick leave a few years ago and I decided to start blogging again (where this blog was reborn). I bought this domain which I had previously owned at one point and let go and started blogging again. 2015 will be my third year straight… well semi strait lol. I have a few lulls in between where I have not blogged for a few weeks or even months.
