Bagong taon nanaman guys! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday break– I know I did. I stayed in Manila and enjoyed spending time with my family and friends. I really like being in the city after Christmas because walang traffic and I really get to just slow it down and take a break. After traveling so much for work the past few months, I literally wanted to just Netflix and chill the entire holiday week! I was also thinking of my New Year’s resolutions this 2019 and I’m sharing a few here.
First on the list is to be more active on my blog again. I think I enjoyed vlogging way too much last year and completely forgot about my original platform, which is my Break My Style– and I feel so bad about it! What’s even worse, I was contemplating if I should completely stop writing and concentrate more on videos. Then I realized, I won’t be where I am now without my blog. I started blogging when I was 21 years old and yes, iba na ang online world now because of social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, but my blog is a platform where I share all my stories (longer ones that I won’t ever post on IG) and feelings. I still look at my blog as a personal diary, a journal where I’m able to express myself. A travel / style guide for those who want to know more about my experiences. So this 2019, I am going to start blogging again.
Second is to eat healthier. I’m a muncher. I will eat anything that’s in front of me even if I’m not hungry. I love chocolates, ice cream, and cakes and I think these will be the hardest to let go. I’m trying to have self control now and say no to certain dishes / desserts I know will do me no good. Diet lang (and have a cheat day once a week) until I reach my dream body. More veggies and less carbs.
Third is to exercise more. I love boxing / muay thai and I love going to the gym, but when I’m out of the country, I can’t seem to get myself to workout. I make excuses like there’s not enough time or I wanna explore the city instead or I’m too tired. I now have resistance loop bands (sport brands) and a jump rope that can easily fit my luggage so even if I’m traveling, I’ll have time to squeeze in a quick workout kahit sa loob lang ako ng room.
Fourth is to spend more time with family and friends. I remember crying so much when my friends surprised me during my birthday last October because I really didn’t expect I was gonna see all of them on my special day. Now matter how busy we all are, let’s not forget to spend time with our loved ones.
Fifth is to visit a new destination this year. Nuff said.
