Goals For My 35th Year

It’s that time again! My birthday was a few weeks ago, so with that being said it’s time to set myself new goals for my 35th year!

If you read my post from last year, you will be familiar with the new tradition I have started! Each year on my birthday I will set myself at least 10 goals to be completed over the next 365 days!

So for here are my 10 new goals for my 35th Year!

Travel

Last year I wanted to travel more but with moving and starting a new job, travelling was the last thing on my mind! This year I would really like to do more European or UK City weekend breaks. I AM also booking to go to my Brother’s wedding which will take place in October 2017. I also hope to finally visit my cousin in Germany during October Half term.

Lose Weight

My aim is to lose 2 stones! I know this is quite a big feat but I think with hard work and determination I can definitely achieve this goal. I really worked on my diet last year, which I am still in the process of refining. The goal this year, is to increase my physical activity. As per last year the goal is to do more exercise!! Currently I AM in the process of looking for a good gym that doesn’t cost much to join!

Decorating

There is a lot of decorating to be done in our new place. So I will be working on trying to complete as much as possible.  I AM planning on finishing Ky’s room first and then mine! Then I will work on the front room/dining room and hallway. I’m not planning to rush so I know it maybe a couple of years before everything is exactly how I want it!

Successful Business

I started to work on this goal last year but due to moving and starting a new job, I was unable to complete it. However I have been busy the last few months trying to make this happen. I have completely changed the business, including branding and the services we will be offering. All I need to do now is to finish the website (which I am currently working on) and get promoting! I know that having a successful business can take some time so I AM prepared for this goal to be a continued work in progress!

12 Books in 12 Months

Last year my goal was to read more, this year the goal is simple, to read 12 books in 12 months. Due to this post being nearly a month late, I am already halfway through my 1st book! Not a bad start, methinks!

Clear Braces

After having Ky, my teeth really suffered and I had to have a number of fillings. It is believed that some women suffer loss of calcium when pregnant. Some of these fillings have been hard for the dentist to fill, as some of my teeth slightly overlap. My dentist suggested that by getting my teeth straightened it would make it easier for him to completely fix some of my holes properly. He also stated that I should have been given braces when I was younger!! Not impressed as my original dentist told me my teeth where fine! Anyway I have been told it’s the best treatment for me and I AM hoping to have them fitted before my next birthday.

Graphic Design Course

Another goal that has been rolled over from last year! My main reason for not being able to enrol on the course as yet, has been due to finances and other things taking a priority. The course is extremely expensive but I AM staying positive that I will be able to enrol on the course by August next year.

Saving More

I don’t really feel this needs any real explanation. I would like to save more not just for myself but also for Ky. I have saving accounts for us both but I would like to make regular deposits for us both.

Saying Yes More

As I get older, I AM staring to want to try more new things. Now this may be a new skill or hobby or even going to different types of events that I may not have considered before. I AM always telling Ky to try new things and so I believe I should lead by example! So this goal is about saying yes to trying new things and experiences!

Do you set personal goals for yourself on or around your birthday? If you do share them with me and let me know what you plan to achieve in 365 days!

New Vlog: Missing in Action

Hey Guys,

Sorry we have been missing in action but we have been so busy settling into our new home and I have also recently started a new job! So life has become a new kind of juggling act.

In this vlog we go shopping and out to eat, where we have the unfortunate pleasure of being sat near to someone who used so much profanity while speaking to his date/girlfriend! And I await the arrival of my friends new baby!

Hope you enjoy! And don’t forget to subscribe to our vlog channel!

Peace and Love

BBQ Salmon with Roasted Vegetable Cous Cous

(Serves 2)

Ingredients

½ tsp (approx.) Fish Seasoning

½ tsp (approx.) All Purpose Seasoning

½ tsp (approx.) Mixed Herbs

½ tsp (approx.) Black Pepper

3-5 Sprays of Cooking Oil (Sunflower or Olive Oil)

2-4 tbsp BBQ Sauce (Depending on size of fillets)

2 Salmon Fillets

160ml Hot Water

 

Directions:

BBQ Salmon

Preheat the oven to 200°C/392°F

Season the Salmon fillets with the Fish seasoning, All Purpose seasoning, Mixed Herbs and Black Pepper.

Lay foil on top of a baking tray.

Spray the cooking oil all over the foil to stop the fish from sticking.

Place Salmon on to the foil and squeeze the BBQ sauce on top.

Fold the foil over the Salmon into a parcel. Make sure you fold up the sides.

Place the Salmon in the oven on to the middle shelf and set the timer for 15 minutes.

When the timer goes off, take the Salmon out of the oven and turn over the Salmon. Add more BBQ sauce if needed.

Place the Salmon back into the Oven for another 10-15 minutes.

Once fully cooked serve with the Roasted Vegetable Cous Cous and Salad.

 

Roasted Vegetable Cous Cous

Place the contents of the packet into a bowl.

Pour over the 160ml of hot water.

Stir the Cous Cous with a fork to ensure all the grains are covered with water.

Let it stand for 5 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed.

Once the water has all been absorbed, then fluff the grains up with a fork making sure there is no water left.

Serve with BBQ Salmon and Salad.

 

Yummy! Enjoy!
