HAPPY 2016 DEFINING DANIE READERS!
Thank you so much for making 2015 one of the best years for me! I cannot thank everyone enough for taking the time out of your day to read my posts!
I try not to make resolutions because I am one to feel guilt when I do not follow through with the resolutions that I do not keep.
For 2016, I have REAL promises that I am going to keep for myself. I know that a promise can be related to these resolutions, but in my book they are different!
What are my promises?
I will start with something that I struggle with often…
I do not need others around all the time to make me happy. I am personally so extroverted that I crave being around people 24/7. I really want to start learning how to hangout in my house all day and RELAX. I am not one for relaxing, but my mental health needs it so bad.
In the spirit of taking care of myself, I am promising myself that I will stay on track with exercising. When I was a senior in high school, I was a workout ADDICT. I was looking back at my social media from when I was working out constantly and I truly think I was a happier person then. Not because I weighed less, but because I know I truly FELT better. I know it is true that exercising releases endorphins and with a stressful semester coming up, I need all of the endorphins possible!
To just start taking care of myself overall. I have put my health aside for far too long now. 2016 will be the year of “Danie’s Health Journey.” I am promising myself that this year I will not only be more conscience of what I am eating, but make sure to take the medicines that I am prescribed. I HATE medicine, but my health is coming to a point of needing it more than ever.
I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year’s Eve! This year, I stayed in with my sister, Payton and one of my best friends, Amanda! We watched the ball drop! I cannot wait to see what 2016 brings for me.
Ready for some bloopers from this fun photoshoot done by friend, Amanda?

Looking forward to all your blogs in 2016 and good ideas to help us all with our promises!
Thank you so much, Robin! Thank you for keeping up with Defining Danie 🙂
I loved reading this Danie! I think the most important thing we can so for ourselves is look after our health when we are younger, so that we don’t create problems for ourselves when we are older. I support you in this journey and wish you a happy and healthy year. I have lots of recipes for healthy sweet treats on my blog to help you get started, my vegan style cookies are a great pre and post gym snack! xxx
I completely agree with you! Thank you so much for the support and I will definitely check out the recipes. I love your blog and I read it often! 🙂
Please do, and let me know if you need any advice or tips ❤ and thank you, it means so much to me when I hear people enjoy reading my blog xx
