Strengthening My Resolve

First off let me start this by saying this is NOT a resolution.

I have a funny thing about New Year's resolutions. I feel like they are a token nod to 'what I really should be doing in my life'. No offence to anyone who makes them. It's more how you tackle them and your reasons behind making them. But I am a firm believer that you don't have to wait for the excuse of a new year to try and better yourself.

So, not long before Melbourne/Christmas I decided I wanted to start being healthier and getting fitter. I tried to be on my best behaviour over Christmas and be as good as one can be when that much food and drink is going around. However I am looking forward to a motivated and fresh start along with the new year.

This time 2 years ago I was in rather good shape, aesthetic and fitness wise. I am still quite happy with myself in general terms, although I know I am not as fit as a should be and could afford to shift a couple of kilos. But lets be clear about something.

This is not a weightloss journey. This is not a new diet. I am not going sugar free. I am not giving up carbs. I am simply going to eat smarter and exercise. I am still happy with me. I just want to improve my fitness and overall wellbeing.

I know how good I feel when I eat well. Good, natural, healthy, nutrient rich food. My body thrives on it. My skin glows. My clothes sit just that little bit nicer. If I am going to tackle this year and the amazing, awesome, challenging, big things it's going to bring my way - I want to be ready.

So I am putting it out there. Making myself accountable.

I would like to get back to how I was 2 years ago.

It's not good to do as little exercise as I do. My body and my system isn't strong. It's a big girly girl that runs away screaming or is put to the ground at the first sign of trouble.

Well no longer, I want to be strong, capable and fighting fit.

I'll be eating healthier food more often, shaving down my portion sizes a little and most importantly making myself exercise!

Here's hoping I have some results to share with you soon. I feel so determined and motivated already. This year is MY year! I hope you're ready world!

Go You!! I think you will do great, you have the right frame of mind and doing it for the right reasons :) But personally I think you look fab just as you are xx

Thanks Hayley :) I'm fine with how I look right now too...sure a little more tone and a couple of kilos off would look nice too, but generally I love me. It's more about my health, how I feel and the fact that doing no exercise is bad for you no matter your age, diet, etc. I just want to be ready to take on life and leap over tall buildings ;) xo

Happy New Year Sheri!

I have to say I share 100% your view about the NO DIET and it's actually what I blog about.
I’m currently running a giveaway (open to aussies) on my blog to win a copy of bestseller: “French Women Don’t Get Fat”.

This book is about the French paradox of eating for pleasure without putting on weight.

Not sure if you have read this book already or will be interested but feel free to visit me for a chance to win: http://mademoiselleslimalicious.blogspot.com/
