New Year, New me?
Not new me, but a better version of me!
Everyone is super motivated and excited when a new year begins but usually by February all that goes away.
Make sure you set REALISTIC GOALS. Too many changes at once might set you to fail. Stop smoking, read more, eat healthy, cut sugar, cut processed foods, start running, go to gym 6 days a week, might be a bit overwhelming! Believe me, I have been there.
Set a couple of goals and slowly insert a couple more later on. Let’s think of our year as a few blocks of 8-12 weeks.
I have failed year after year setting way too many goals and giving up after 2 months. Last year I have started slowly, doing BBG resistance workouts x 3 a week, and then inserting cardio by 1-2 x week during January.
Slowly cutting sugar and processed foods the next month, eating more vegetables and drinking more water.
Eventually it will all turn part of your routine.
Do not overthink, and most importantly, do NOT BEAT YOURSELF up if you fail one day. Make the next day a better one!
Now that fitness is finally part of my routine (only took 17 years) I can work on improving!
- Work on my self-confidence! MOST IMPORTANT THING!
Talking in public is just scary, you never see me talking on snapchat or instastories, I never think my posts are good enough and I get really down if I lose followers ( I know it is crazy! but I am working on it).
Love myself more! With all my flaws and believe I CAN!
So need to sign up to a gym first!
As much as I love BBG, I don’t feel that challenges me that much anymore. Was great to kickstart this journey, to lose body fat and tone a little. But now I want something more challenging! So need to start lifting heavier! Will keep doing BBG when I can though!!
Who knows maybe a Bikini Competition on the line? (wink* wink* Indie @youleanmeup)
- Vegan in January and maybe reduce massively animal products intake in my diet throughout the year. Going well so far.
- Be more organised (this is a tough one for me!)
Let’s make 2017 a great one! Smash it together and improve ourselves! I am here for you and always reach out if you need motivation.
Now tell me, what is your new year’s goals??
