My New Year’s resolutions for 2017 is to eat healthy and lose weight, and follow through this year. Last year, I did this and lost 20 pounds while feeling healthier. However, I got lazy around the middle of the year and didn’t stick to the routine. I gained most of the weight back. Next year, my resolution is to stick to the routine and follow through for the whole year.

My New Year’s resolution for 2017 is to try new things and get out of my comfort zone. I want to lose some fears. I want to make mistakes and learn from them. I want to live a life of “oh wells,” rather than “what ifs.” I want to make memories so that I can tell them to other people and share smiles.

I feel like my New Year’s resolutions should always start in December before the new year begins. I hope to do more in life. I would really like to travel to at least two places in the next year. I feel like I haven’t been doing much this past year and need a little change of scenery.
