The Lunar New Year is fast approaching, and 2015 is the Year of the Goat! In celebration of the event, I decided to share my resolutions and goals for this year. Many on you have realized I have lost quite a bit of weight since November 2014 (over 10 pounds), and I have steadily worked towards it by eating healthier day to day. I also control my junk food and sweet tooth cravings without completely depriving my taste buds. I eat a clean, balanced diet with luxurious little treats throughout the week — especially during that time of the month — and cook at home from scratch as much as possible. I am still working on incorporating regular exercise, but I hope to reach that goal very soon!
I also plan to travel more this year, but I have made it a goal to become a more efficient traveler. I used to feel very anxious about flights and pack in extreme excess, especially my beauty products. Now, I have learned (and am still learning) how to pack lighter using multi-functional products like Hourglass' new Equilibruim Face Oil and a passport holder that also functions as a wallet! These little changes have decreased my stress less while traveling. I've also learned how to best take care of my skin during flights, so I think that helps me relax more comfortably as well.
My last goal is to fix my sleeping schedule, which has been a constant work in progress for years. Jetlag can feel pretty miserable, but I have been combating it with stretching and casual yoga at home whenever possible. I hope to sleep by 10:30 and wake up at 6:30, but I know that it is more realistic to plan for 11:30 to 7:30 at the moment. No matter how healthy I eat, I realize that an abnormal sleeping schedule throws off my body's rhythm. I really want to boost my productivity and creativity this year, and that starts with better sleeping habits!
Now it's your turn to share! Share your #YoGoatGoals with me on Instagram, and you'll be entered to win the limited edition Goat Chocolate Collection! Just snap a photo representing your goals and use the hashtag #YoGoatGoals to enter to win. The Lunar New Year Year of GODIVA giveaway held here on the blog, however, is the grand prize — a year's worth of GODIVA's legendary chocolates!
I try to limit myself to one piece of chocolate every couple days, so I've been gobbling down the 3 limited edition goat piece flavors first. The Chrysanthemum and Ginger white chocolate is an unusual confectionary combination, but as a ginger fan, I find it truly memorable. I admit I was a bit hesitant about the Gui Flower and Ginseng milk chocolate, but it may be my favorite of the bunch! I love the way the flavor combination hits all my taste buds. The Jasmine and Angelica Root flavor is delicate but still has presence while allowing the 72% chocolate to shine. The other 14 chocolates in the Lunar New Year Collection Collection box features GODIVA's other luscious Belgian chocolates, so you get a taste of new exotics as well as traditional classics.
