Are you excited for the new week? You should be. It's an opportunity to asses what you want out of your time and decide upon the best attitude to help you reach it. I have faith in you!
The second week in January is usually the time I give up on New Year's Resolutions and feel rather melancholy at the sorry state of my will power. I don't think I'm alone.
You've had a good crack at things but really, not drinking fizzy drinks or finally reorganising your junk room is hard work and sometimes boring. I get it, I feel your pain. I can't even tell you how much I want a gallon of iced diet coke and some cheese fries.
But, we have each other and this warm, engaging community to support us!
Have a think about a goal or aim you have at the moment. It doesn't have to be a New Year Resolution as I know some people don't bother, but just something you're trying to do/not do right now in your life. Focus on it. Are you doing it well? Are you veering off course? Are you cheating a little bit?
Make today be the day that you try a tiny bit harder. Not start over or find a new goal but just try that little bit more to achieve this one. Take the love and support of this community all cheering you on and push that one bit harder. Do that every day this week and then on Saturday assess your progress. Hopefully you'll be so proud of yourself that you keep on going next week and voila, you have pushed through a hump and come out stronger.
I for one will be drawing from this motivation as I continue on my road to a fitter body (and gee wizz sometimes it feels like a rubbish road, but I'm determined not to let myself down this year, because after all, who else's body am I bettering?) and will update you on my progress.
Last week in THIS post we talked about enjoying little things in each day. I would love to hear in the comments if there was anything specific you enjoyed. Here are some of mine - Having Matt, Clare, Zoe, Alfie and Marcus be so supportive of my healthier life choices, listening to Darcy play her 'git-ar' and singing made up babybabble songs, watching YouTube videos in bed with Matt before we go to sleep and taking pretty pictures on my big girl camera- I should do that more.
So two bits of comment 'homework' for you haha. What resolution/goal are you going to push a tiny bit harder on and what did you enjoy from last week's focused attention? Feel free to talk to each other in the comments and provide encouragement!
