Every year I try to come up with new ways to motivate myself.
January 1st - a day of false promises.
Despite the fact it is literally no different to any other day, for some reason, the thought of a "new year" tricks us all into believing we can sort our lives out.
We all set resolutions... but who ever really keeps them?
So this year, I thought I would do something a liiiiiittle bit different.
Instead of setting myself unrealistic targets, I thought I'd let you do it for me!
20 challenges for the year 2020
(see what I did there? Clever, huh)
As seen from the screenshots below, I asked a selection of my family & friends to set me a challenge / resolution for the new year.
It's safe to say that I definitely had some *interesting* responses.
Some answers were really kind... and others were just not "PG" enough to include in this blog!
We're already knee-deep in January, and I've probably failed them all already... so wish me luck!
I am definitely a fan of this one and I think I'm getting there... slowly.
I LOVE this challenge, as I've had so much fun filming recent videos. From one creative bean to another, thank you Jo!
This is the guy who shouts: "my friend was on TV!" everytime we're at a busy restaurant. Is this so you can try and publicly humiliate me even more?! Haha. Cheers Chris!
Classic Mother. I'm keen to use my phone less... but let's be real, the veg ain't happening!
This one is deep, but I like it! I'm always down for a scenic view / beach day, but maybe I'll save that for the warmer months!
I did a recent quiz with Chloe that exposed my lack of food 'adventure'. I accept this challenge, however the glitter will NEVER happen. Sparkalaphobia - look it up.
I would expect nothing less from you James. You skinny little runt.
This is a good one for me. Being more 'adventurous' is definitely something I am working on... now lets hurry up and book our trip to Barcelona!
Here we go... attack of the veggies! Last year I dedicated a whole month to 'Vegetarian life'. It was HARD, but I definitely don't eat as much meat as I used to! Compromise? Please?
My whole life is one big blooper, so this will be no problem. This is also a great idea, as I'm always happy to work with / promote other bloggers. Thanks Lucy!
Absolutely not. Amanda, you know I love you, but no.
Are we talking alcohol? Because I've recently discovered Bacardi and orange, and I'm slightly worried I now have a problem...
It's a fair point and I will definitely take this on board.
Nobody can pull off a rainbow look like you! My wardrobe is black with an added touch of BLACK. Saying 'Yes' everyday is a great one tho, thanks!
It was a pleasure knowing you, but we can't be friends anymore.
Mate, this is exactly what I need - a social detox. This will be a big challenge, but I accept!
I hate travelling and you know this... but it's in the diary and it's happening! March 2020. You ready?
This is just pure evil. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
I basically copied your German homework for 5 years back in school... so why would you do this to me?
Such a charmer! I never knew you had so little faith in me... but you're absolutely right haha.
