January can sometimes be the hardest month to get through. Everywhere you go you find yourself having the idea of New Year Resolutions forced upon you and to ban yourself from eating almost every type of food.
This diet will make you lose 2 stone in a week.
Food to avoid and why.
The fitness plan that changed my body in 6 weeks.
Those article titles make me feel sick. They make you feel guilty about eating foods without you even realising it.
That one training session missed and the immense guilt that follows.
January is suppose to the be the month of positivity is it not?
My point is don’t feel down because your 2018 so far hasn’t gone as well as you’d hoped. Because I’m in the same boat.
My 2018 has been hard physically and mentally.
The return to work after Christmas was a massive shock to the system, which probably wasn’t helped by the flu I was battling. I can’t remember the last time I was so ill I could barely walk round my local park.
So that was the first week of 2018 scuppered. It was me and a box of Kleenex tissues rather than sweating it out in the gym.
I’ve also been worrying about the up coming race season and how the amount of training I’ve done for it being zero.
I kept finding myself in the mindset of it being too late to start now…
My point of all of this is, is if you find yourself in the same boat of the start of 2018 being anything but positive…keep your chin up.
How I’m getting out of this rut is to say I’ll just start a fresh in February (well now really). I’m prioritising what is important so as to not spread myself out too thinly. And plan out all of my trips to the gym to get back to my old self.
So if you feel like writing off any goal achieving in 2018, why not start a fresh in February? There are 11 months left after all. We don’t need to go from zero to hero in a month, we can just take those small steps to get us there.
