My Resolutions for 2015

Resolutions for 2015

2015 is the year for massive change in our life.  For once I’ll be able to have some time to myself while ALL the kids  are in  morning school.

I’m embarking on a few new challenges in addition to the Weight Lost Challenge  that I announced in October.  I’m doing a  de-clutter challenge and also a healthy eating one as I re-sync myself  in plan with my  healthy living motto.

Why start on a De-clutter Challenge?

I’ve been hording too many things in the house which has collected dust since they were purchased.   Art material that I had purchased remain untouched as I haven’t really been doing much crafts with them as I’m not really an artsy person.

Bento  making equipment  and Cookie cutters by the  dozen  which were bought  to create lunch boxes for the kids have been under utilized. The boys do not fancy bringing  lunch boxes to school and would rather purchase food from the canteen instead.  I’ve decided to use the equipment to make fancy lunches or dinners for the kids instead since they return home for lunch on most afternoons.

The kids have a lot of story books  which have been passed down to them from friends with older kids or relatives.  There are so many books that they have been cluttering  our bookshelf which they do not read. I have yet to go through each of the books in the cupboard to see if they are still suitable for the kids to read or need to be given away to free up space in that cupboard.

Why  another Healthy Eating Challenge?

Even though we have stepped up on eating more natural foods at home there is quite a lot that I have to learn.  It has been difficult to lose weight last year due to the fact that I may not have been eating right for my body type. I will be actively tuning my diet to get the best out of it and get to my desired weight.  The kids too will need to cut out more processed and junk foods from their diet as it will certainly be beneficial to them in the long run.

If you do have any recommendations on healthy eating plans for kids/adults  do drop me an e-mail or leave me a comment below .

Last year I wrote down 10 things that I was looking forward to and in my 2014 reflection post  I managed  cross off many on that least and hope to do the same at the end of this year.

Here are some of the things that  I am looking forward to in 2015

  1. Completing all my challenges . ( Healthy Eating, Weight lost and Declutter)
  2. Improving my photography  skills.
  3. Learn more dishes to try out with the kids.
  4. Brush up on my French and Japanese
  5. Going  on a couple trip with R.
  6. The kids being able to speak Mandarin and Cantonese more fluently.
  7. Engage the kids more in bible reading and learning about values.
  8. Do more crafts and outdoor activities with the kids.

What resolutions have you set for 2015?

  1. I also need to purge things from our home. It’s so hard! The kids also have books they do not read that I want to give away. I don’t really have resolutions, I just want to purge and clean up our home.

  2. I am with you. I need to do some major decluttering too! Working on my basement as a matter of a fact. Working on writing down my resolutions for 2015!

  3. I love the idea of bettering myself for the start of a new year. Sounds like you have some well-thought out goals. Here’s to sticking with the promises we make to ourselves in 2015!

  4. Good luck with your goals. I completed a decluttering challenge, which I was pretty satisfied with, but since then stuff started gathering again–it never ends, I guess 🙂

  5. Nice post, Dominique. I like the idea of having cookies for the kids when they return home for lunch on afternoons. Boys don’t like “pretty ones” when with other boys. Oatmeal cookies with raisons are pretty healthy, they don’t need as much sugar as most recipes would say.

    I have a wonderful office which has gotten so out of hand (junk room??) that it can’t be used for its purpose. I need to reclaim it, this should be the year.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

  6. top of my list is losing extra pounds too. hahaha.
    Hope to make it. We are starting doing cardio through dancing starting next week.

  7. Good list there! I still have to finalize my resolution post. My list grew so long I just know I won’t be able to fulfill all of them. So I’m going over them again and again to identify which ones are the most important. Working on our resolutions is quite a challenge so I wish you luck on yours. Happy New Year!

  8. Wonderful resolutions. I’m simply working on doing “better” in every way. And already… that seems to be working. Yay me! Your reasons why and the full thought are refreshing. Visiting here from MakaKat’s Losin’ It!

  9. Making resolutions overwhelm me – all the time. This year, I promise to have achievable and long-term goals. Similarly, checking on them periodically will help me evaluate if I am on the right track or not. Good luck to you, Dominique and it’s great to know that you have more time for yourself this year 🙂

  10. sounds like some great challenges. I’ve already started my de-cluttering. It helped a lot by boxing up things not important, when I was painting. Healthy eating and weight loss go hand-in-hand. They are two resolutions I have. And good luck on the languages {:-D

  11. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement! I’m working on sorting through all the various tasks that I feel need to be tackled in my life, so it was helpful to see how you wrote it down and identified the most important things. I’m stopping by from the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop at Katherine’s Corner and hope to connect with you again this coming week at the hop! Nina @ Vintage Mama’s Cottage
