I am most definitely not a person who makes New Year’s resolutions, I can’t handle the stress and the unrealistic expectations placed upon us, usually by ourselves to do something we really don’t want to do. If I do make New Year’s resolutions then they are super fun like during 2019 I want to go four holidays and have lots of new socks. Both resolutions perfectly normal and not hard nor does it put me under any pressure, therefore, I can’t feel disappointed if I don’t archive them. So there will be no new year new me bullshit!
2018 was intense, fun and slightly waist-busting! I had a ball but ate out far too much and worked, even more, its safe to say that in 2018 my self-care and fitness went out the window. So went better way to start a new year than with a new blog challenge that puts my well beginning back to the top of my properties. I am a strong believer that a healthy body encourages a healthy mind and fitness is just as important to your physical health as it is to your mental health. I really want to point out that this isn’t a New Years resolution more new actions based on me looking back over the last 12 months.
So for the next 30 days, I will be doing something every single day that will bring me one step closer to my fitness goal. Whether that is exercise, meal prepping or just stretching, each day is going to have something fitness related in it. Also since I am now fully committed to staying single I want something to focus on and what better thing to put all my energy into than looking after myself. I am not setting a goal I merely just want to add fitness to my list of priorities I already know by doing so my body will naturally change. I am not going to obsess about numbers or losing weight. Instead, I am going to concentrate on being the strongest, healthiest version of myself I can be.
I also want to go back to being vegan, I was vegan for 5 years in my twenties something I had to give up for health reasons but now it is something I desperately want to get back to. In general, I want to look at how I live my whole life. I am aware I use far too much plastic something I will most definitely be changing this year. Last year I was so focused on moving on from being heartbroken and my career, I was driven and distracted. As much as I love my life I need to be more conscious of my choices and how they affect others, I spend so much time exploring this beautiful planet that I should be more aware of it. So January is more of a little kick start to my year, no expectations or extra pressure just me asking myself more questions and I guess being more accountable for my actions. Whether that is to remember to take bags shopping with me or managing to leave the office on time and fitting a workout in. Last year taught me to be me and do me, this year I need to put all that into practice.
I am hoping by the end of the 30 days it will all just becomes a habit and I no longer need to force myself to exercise, eat better or remember my bloody shopping bags. I am not even going to lie my eating habits have become bloody shocking, I am eating at least 7 meals a week from fast food places. So fingers crossed I don’t die because I have become so unfit and unhealthy and let’s hope to see some positive changes including a more body positive attitude towards myself.
So my goals for January and hopefully forever……
- Move every day.
- Make more vegan choices.
- Use less plastic.
- Create less waste.
I will be posting daily on my insta stories about my progress, struggles and wins!
Wish me luck!!!
