My 2017 Goals


I'm aware I'm a bit late with popping this post up, but better late than never right?! Although I honestly can't believe I'm already writing this. It felt like I was typing out my 2016 goals just yesterday, so crazy. I decided to do this again, as its something I can refer back to and see if I manage to achieve any of them!

01. Stick to a gym routine/get fitter
In November I finally joined the gym, and I'm really glad I did. I want to be able to have a routine and stick to it, as I want to get my fitness levels up. I'm pretty weak at the moment and do no exercise what so ever, so its something I'd love to achieve by the end of 2017. Actually, something else I'd like to add to this is gain some weight. I'm currently underweight, and would just like to get myself up to a healthier weight.

02. Travel outside of the UK
2016 was a great year for travelling in the UK, as I got to visit some places I've never been to before. But I think for 2017 the goal is to try and get myself out of the UK and see some more of the world. Fingers crossed!

03. Keep managing my anxiety
I've done so much better with managing my anxiety this year, and I've really improved a lot. But I want to push that a bit further and potentially get better at dealing with my emetophobia, which is something I'm going to aim to do each year until I have conquered it!

04. Pass my A Levels & head off to university
Crazy to think this year is my last year of being in compulsory education after about 14 years. I'd love to be able to finish (and pass) my A Levels with good marks and get myself into uni. Whether thats to do a foundation degree in art & design or start a photography degree, I'm not sure yet.

05. To read at least 10 books
I love reading so much, and I know I don't do enough of it. The aim is to read at least 10 books by the end of the year, and I'm hoping I can nail this one. I'll have a lot more free time after A Levels, so hopefully over summer I can read a good handful!

These goals aren't as big as last years, but still ones I want to try and achieve. Heres to a positive 2017, all the best!

  2. Hey Lucy! This is a great set of goals you have for the year, and I know you'll smash them! :) I personally identified with the one about the gym and working out more. I think that with how selective I've been with my workouts, my squat game and quads and glutes could rival superman's....but I have like ZERO upper body strength lol! So pushups and bicep curls are the plan. Also, I'm so proud of you for handling your anxiety, girl! I know that this year will be one of renewed strength for you! You're gonna do amazing things girlie! (Just make sure you bring us followers along!)

    Lots of love,

  3. Good luck for your A levels and uni!! I'm currently doing a design degree and I'm sure it's very different in NZ compared to the UK but I'm sure it'll be fun nonetheless if you choose to do a design degree :)

  27. Best of luck with all your goals, I like how you made them super realistic so that there's little to no disappointment involved towards the end of the year...I should probably learn from you ha. You're so dedicated with the gym, I need to get more fit but ehhhh. I think a good place to start with travelling is Paris, it's always a safe place to go and you're bound to love it as there's just so much to do- and it's not too far from home either.
