I’d like to say that this month will see me start on a new get fit, lose weight, eat better, write more……bla bla bla kick.
But in reality? It’s unlikely to work out that way. New years resolutions never last very long in this house. We start with all the best of intentions of course, but life gets in the way and it all falls apart rather quickly!
January isn’t the best time of year, the long dark days, grey skies can be a pain, and I have always hovered on the edges of depression and SAD (although if we get some snow it will certainly bring a smile to my face!)
So this year, I’m just going to go with the flow a little bit.
I won’t deny there is certainly weight to lose and fitness to achieve. And yes I will be giving it my best shot (along with some very wonderful friends!) But right now I’m not setting any hard to reach goals or expect a lot.
I’m going to go with the flow. I’m going to relax into the new year and enjoy it as much as I can. Work is tough and leads to a lot of pressure and tiredness, so for my “down time” I’m going to just go with it. I’m going to enjoy the little victories, relish in the mundane achievements and not beat myself up over the failures. I am my own worst critic and need to cut myself some slack.
So here’s to tiny steps, enjoying the positive no matter how small, and a new year with all it’s potential – I’m going to let it evolve as it likes and not restrict it to my needs!
Does that make any sense to anyone else or am I just rambling again?
