Regardless of your chosen resolution for the impending new year, why not utilise the next few days to transition into the ‘new you’.
Make some mistakes before 2021 even happens, and try to adopt any alternative behaviours or diets so that when the clock chimes and the calendar flips over you are ready.
I went out to do my first bit of exercise this morning after 5 days off. I’ve managed to put on 7lbs since I last stepped on the scales less than a fortnight ago. Granted I have been eating like a god over Christmas… I’ve eaten a handful of Christmas dinners, sometimes back to back with seconds, I’ve succumbed to seasonal scotch eggs, treated myself to blueberry muffins and even necked a cheeky cider (what a devil!)
However, having been out for a morning walk and followed that by some exercises at home I feel on top of the situation already. The hard bit, the getting started has happened, and I’m sure I can carry this momentum onwards through the week and well into January.
As for my actual resolutions, I’ve not decided on anything certain. But I think it will involve not over cooking myself. I’m full of ideas at the moment, and keen to follow stuff through and act fast, but I’m also conscious that I need to have the time to dedicate to particular projects, and my hobbies, my work and of course my family and friends.
So, I need to be prepared to stick a pin in some stuff, and come back to it, when I’m in the best place to make it succeed.
Hope you all had a pleasant Christmas, despite the obvious.
Love to all.
