I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year’s Eve..
Where does the time go?
All the planning and preparation for the festive season and then BOOM it’s over and I don’t know about you but I’m feeling freakin exhausted and I know exactly why!
BECAUSE I have done NOTHING but EAT & DRINK for TWO SOLID WEEKS!!!!
But it’s been food I would never ever over indulge in as often as I have… chocolate, sugar, alcohol, cheese and crackers, wine, champagne & beer. You name it I’m sure I have consumed it!
I don’t think I have really sat down and eaten a proper dinner (meat & veges/salad) for over a week and my Green Smoothies, what the f*#k happened to them????
The last few nights I’ve been going to bed saying “Tomorrow it’s all over, it’s time to get this crap sorted out once & for all.. you’ve fallen off the wagon, you know what you need to do!”
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Have you over indulged or have you managed to stay focused?
If you have stayed focused and on track, I applaud you!
I however, have done everything I said I wouldn’t do and that includes, beating myself up over it.
When you start feeling like this, it is so easy to start thinking what drastic measures you may need to take to get those extra couple of kilos off quickly!
Do I do a juice detox?
Do I just starve myself?
Do I cut out carbs completely?
Do I get up at 5am and run my butt off every morning?
Now there isn’t anything wrong at all with going for a morning run, but for me it is a drastic step when I hardly EVER run.
When you’re faced with a head that’s over-thinking and over-reacting you need to silence it as quickly as possible and make some time to plan a realistic, manageable strategy.
A strategy that is not just about getting those extra kilos off, one that includes all the other things you want to achieve. When we live a life of balance and with purpose, all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. You are happier, content, fulfilled and when you feel like this you want to take better care of yourself. You exercise, you eat better, you do things that soothe your soul and you start to feel fantastic again..
So, did you set any New Year Resolutions?
I personally stopped setting them a few years ago as I NEVER stuck with them because they were always so GENERAL…
Get a Bikini Body
Give up Coffee
I’m not sure why I would EVER say that because I know I will NEVER give up coffee!!
Rather than just setting New Year Resolutions that you know you aren’t going to keep, narrow it down to specific things. Things you want to do more of, less of, achieve, eliminate, simplify and embrace in all areas of your life.
I received a NY Resolution/Goal Setting PDF from one of the groups I am a part of Female Entrepreneur Association and I really loved it so I thought I would share it with you. I’ve started filling mine in and it’s fun!
You don’t need to do it all at once, some things will come to you very easy and others you will need to ponder on a bit more as you fill in the boxes.
So why print it off and scribble down a few points in the sections that resonate and put it up so you can see it daily to inspire you.
