Well, it’s the start of a New Year and a renewed determination from me to feel fitter and healthier in 2014.
Wobbles Wednesday has a home on this site for a couple of weeks whilst I
sort out the self-hosting on ditchflabgetfab.
I started 2013 immensely positive and then life kind of overtook any thoughts of looking after ME and I spent most of the year chasing my proverbial tail and trying to keep up. As a result, old habits returned as a way of dealing with stress and I slipped up. I’m not sure by how
much because the scales and I have a definite love-hate relationship and I’m ignoring them at the moment, well, this week anyway.
I was reading an online article concerning a new book by Paul McKenna and it all made a lot
of sense. It’s mainly about listening to your body and whenever the munchies strike (usually in the evening for me) ask yourself why do you want whatever it is you’re craving and how will you feel
afterwards, with the idea being that you will feel worse after and it’s recognising that you will feel that and preventing it.
Basically common sense, but it’s putting it into practice and retraining those emotions. We still have quite a bit of Christmas chocolate around and I am ignoring it all, trying instead to reach for a satsuma or a Bahlsen biscuit which are far less fat and calories.
I also have a funeral to attend next week and I want to feel better about myself in advance of that.
So, the key word for me – at the moment anyway – is Positivity.
It’s a New Year and a new start, this time of year always brings a whole range of fitness DVDs and I am tempted by one of them. Time will tell.
I hadn’t seen the Now Magazine cover below until this week and I think it was so irresponsible:
Several of the women they featured have a history of eating disorders, how on earth must they have felt? I hope Now apologise. It’s one thing to look in the mirror and think “hmm, could do a bit of healthy eating”, it’s quite another to see swimsuit images on the cover of a national magazine, accompanied by
such a cruel headline.
So, my resolutions for the next week are:
Get back to replacing one meal (let’s start realistically) with the Naked Juices that I like so much. They are so good for me, inside and out.
Listen to my inner self when the munchies strike.
Remembering that change will not happen overnight and not
pressurising myself. I’m doing this for me, not a DVD deal (although the personal trainer aspect would be useful)
So, please link up below and leave your posts.
What are your resolutions, if
you’ve made any?
