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!

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
