So following on from my last blog post….. mmm ….. and thats it!
Things haven’t quite gone to plan… a variety of reasons which I won’t go into but the resounding theme is willpower….. well lack of it or at least my amazing ability to talk myself out of why i’ll start tomorrow and not today.
So how do you get your mojo back? Often we are so incentive driven that the thought of getting into that dress or for serious health gain is enough to see us to the finish line… normally this would be all I needed to kick start a new healthy regime but somehow this time its not.
Perhaps its the pressure of modern living? family life and generally lack of time? So ive taken some time out of worrying about it and this is what I have come up with:
- I HATE scales…… unless you are weighing out cake ingredients they should be banned!
- you can only change what you want to change – my mindset at that time was not where it needed to be
- incentives don’t always work – priorities change, so whilst my younger pre-children self would have definitely worried about losing any additional weight my older, and poss wiser self? now doesn’t see this as top of the list instead replacing this with what is important to me now
- things get harder when you get older…. FACT
So with this new found knowledge where do I go from here? Taking these points I have decided to invest in myself….. this may sound strange but I am after something sustainable not a quick fix …. therefore I need a lifestyle change.
Stay tuned for how I plan to be healthy in both body and mind and what local suppliers and resources I shall be utilizing to transform myself. And why following these steps mean you can be a beautiful bride or groom not just for that one special day but for your future together.
