True to form, the New Year brought a number of New Year’s resolutions and so far so good! I managed to go the whole day without eating chocolate as well as keeping to other promises made to myself. My overriding objective in 2014 is to look after myself better. Physically and emotionally I intend to be in better shape during 2014 than I was in 2013 but I know that I will have to work at it.
(Talking of work, it’s back to the office tomorrow.)
Anyway, one day down, a lifetime to go!
Like many people I found 2011 a challenging and demanding year for a number of reasons, the most frustrating of them was feeling below par mentally, physically and emotionally. Good health should never be taken for granted and I realise now that I am “at that age” (as everyone keeps telling me) when I have to work at keeping as healthy as I can. It’s not so easy maintaining a sensible weight and building sufficient exercise into my daily working routine. I need to relax more and look after myself if I am to see in many, many more New Years to come!
My New Year’s resolutions are just that. Look after myself. Eat healthy foods. Exercise a little more and enjoy whatever life brings along the way. I’m not setting targets or deadlines as I can find them counter-productive if not met so I will try my best to keep my resolutions at the forefront of my thinking so I don’t lose the overall focus of just being healthier all round.
Fingers crossed that this time next year I will be lighter, healthier, buzzing with energy and “looking forward” to celebrating my half-century!
Fat & fifty?- No thanks.
Fighting-fit, fabulous, feisty and fifty?- absolutely.
Bring it on!
