The Obligatory New Years Post

Greetings Earthlings!!

So I know I'm a week late on this subject, I wasn't going to write about it at all, but I decided it would be a good idea, since I am having a little bit of a hard time coming up with topics right now.

New Years Resolutions are beaten to death on the blogging-/vlogging-sphere. #NewYearNewMe amiright? Kudos to you if you set resolutions and stick to them, because I never seem to be able to. That's why, this year, I'm not making any resolutions. I do have personal goals and a vision of where I'd like to be at the end of the year, though.
Goal #1; I'd like to be more healthy. There is no set number of pounds or inches I want to lose, because I never meet the goal and end up getting depressed and causing myself to gain more weight... So, instead of resolving to diet and lose weight, I'm setting a goal that I'll make smarter choices (no more pop, less sugar, less alcohol, etc) but instead of depriving myself and setting myself up for failure, I'm cutting each vice out, one at a time. First to go is pop. Then when I feel like I'm not missing it anymore, I'll cut something else. I'm also going to find a physician to make sure my hormones are in check.
Goal #2 is to start blogging more regularly. I'd really love to set a regular schedule for blogging, I just have a hard time writing when I'm not inspired to... Inspiration comes in bursts for me, and if I force something it doesn't feel genuine or honest.
And goal #3 is to learn everything I can learn about my career. I am a Licensed Esthetician, but I feel like I'm really lacking the knowledge I should have by now. I'd also like to be able to put myself out there and land my dream job, grow my client base and not let my insecurities hold me back..

I know the're not much difference between yearly goals and resolutions, but I feel like saying "goals" alleviates much of the pressure and stress, especially when it comes to my personality and tendencies,

Did you set resolutions or are you more goal-oriented? What are some topics you'd like to know my thoughts on?

If someone hasn't told you already, you are gorgeous!
