Fancy a Change?

Apologies for being untraceable for a few days, I've been without internet. It's okay though, I'm back! Apologies again if you like a photo filled post because today's is going to be pretty wordy but I would love it if you gave it a read anyway. Before I get into what I have to say I'll update you on a few things. Point one, I'm no longer dying of a cold, yay! Point two my dress from Missguided is on it's way. Last but definitely not least, point three, I've found the nicest hot chocolate on the planet, it's the Options hazelnut one and it has a faint taste of Nutella, it's lovely!

Now today's post is very much based around the idea of if you don't like something, change it. Basically, that's my aim. It had taken me a while to come to this conclusion because I have zero will power in order to change myself to be the version of me that I want to be. I've decided that now is the time to do it and that if or when I achieve what I want to achieve, I will be a lot happier with myself. My personal aims are to become more confident, do more exercise and lose a bit of weight. I've already started the first two and I decided it might be nice to involve you lot with my 'journey' so to speak. If you fancy, you can join me too. To achieve these aims, I'm setting myself little goals everyday. 

All of my aims are pretty difficult, well I think they are, but becoming more confident is proving most difficult. My mini goal a day for confidence is to answer one question in class. This is only one question for my whole six lessons but I usually just fade into the background and shy away from saying anything. You may think that this isn't really going to help but I am going to gradually increase the number of questions that I challenge myself to answer. I'm doing it little by little. I've also started emailing a lovely girl named Pamela who also has a blog, which is fab by the way and you'd be wrong not to have a nosy. I commented on one of her posts one day and proposed that we did and it's definitely not something I regret. That was also a big step for me because I normally never would have done that but I'm so glad I did. If you fancy doing the same my email is and I'll be happy to have a natter.

Exercising more isn't proving as difficult as the other two. I'm not the most sporty person in the world, in fact I'm not sporty at all but I figured it was time to get off my bum once in a while. This one sort of ties in with losing weight which is handy but the main reason I wanted to do more is so I can put it on college applications. Making myself look better mainly, what can I say? To do this I'm doing after school sport clubs which just aren't my thing but I'll do what I have to to get into where I want to go. I'm doing really exciting badminton on a thursday which I'm awful at and I may start going to netball on a monday if I can go to a different law revision session on a different night. I'm doubting I will though but good intentions ey?

The last is losing weight, now don't even bother trying to talk me out of it because if I lose a bit  I will be happier and thats what I want really. My goals for this one are to stop snacking, which means just two square meals a day, which I can do but it takes a bit, well a lot of will power. The other goal for this one is to do 50+ sit ups a day, which isn't a lot really considering it will work some toning magic on my pudge. I'm also doing my after school sports clubs which ties in with this, very handy if you ask me.

Sorry that it's been a long rambley one today but it had to be said really. I am making a promise to all of you reading this that I will do what I've told you and I'm not one for breaking promises. Hopefully you got something out of this and maybe you'll set your own goals to be the best you that you can be.

This is how I want to feel all the time..
I'm a panda, it will be in a post later in the week.
