Every year, millions of people make New Year's resolutions. Every year, most of those resolutions fall by the wayside.  I’ll be the first to admit that before the ink was dry on my list of self improvement promises I had broken almost every single one of them.  My brand new trainers have already found their way to eBay and just the thought of giving up wine had me reaching for the bottle. January was just a practice month though wasn’t it?

While I try and justify my complete inability to stick to my guns, I have taken it upon myself to support from the sidelines.  A New Year’s Cheerleader if you will. So, while I hunt out my pom-poms, take a look at just a handful of our Mascot’s resolutions for the upcoming year.  Can I get an ‘M’…

Turning 21 has already been the first big highlight of the year so now I'm aiming to complete my 21st Bucket List! First on the travel list is Amsterdam and the next stop is Berlin! I’m also aiming to hold my own charity event and have booked a Bird of Prey flying experience too!





2016 is the year I will finish my novel, join a choir and learn to play the piano.  The keyboard has arrived so there is no turning back now!






My New Years Resolution for 2016 is to pick a New Year's resolution from my list from last year, the year before and the year before that and execute it! 






My unconquerable will for 2016 is firstly to give up bare back horse riding, this is mainly because I have never ridden a horse without a saddle, and in reflection this seems like a life endangering hobby. Secondly and most importantly I plan to say yes to less life endangering but fun and engaging experiences and making the most of everything! It would be a massive bonus if chocolate didn’t pass my lips between the days of Monday – Friday but I’m not sure I can promise anything!



My New Year's resolution is to compete in one of the most challenging track and field events this summer: the heptathlon. I set myself a New Years resolution last year to start training again, after five years of lazing around. I now train six days a week, which can be tough, especially at this time of year, but I know I need to persevere if I want to complete all seven events!
