It’s that time again, the start of a new year. I can’t believe how quick the last one went and it got me thinking about my goals for 2018.
In 2017 I achieved so much and as it stands, I feel kind of content for once (those of you that know me will know that I almost NEVER feel content and I always want to push on for bigger and better things).
So, I asked myself “where do I go from here?”
I have a good job, I have good friends, an amazing family, a great boyfriend, I own my own home and I already live quite an indulgent lifestyle.
What is the one thing I want or need to change or improve. What is it that is holding me back from 100% happiness?
That would be my image. Since the miscarriage I have piled on the weight and am currently the heaviest I have ever been. I know it’s vein to say that my body fat is the one thing that is stopping me from being 100% happy however if I am honest with myself it is the one thing that is constantly getting me down. I hate having to buy a bigger dress size, I hate looking at my wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes that are just collecting dust because I can no longer fit into them, and the final straw is that I literally I cannot stand seeing those countless pictures that have been taken and immediately deleted because I can’t bare to see myself right now.
I recently saw an old friend who asked me “where has my silly selfie addict buddy gone?! I miss your daily outfit posts and silly selfies daily?!”
I guess it made me realise how unhappy I am with my weight, I feel like I have half of the confidence that I used to have and guess what?! The only person who can change that is me!!
So I don’t have a list of 100 goals this year, I have just one.
This year I want to drop a dress size (healthily) by finding that workout bug I once had. So I will be trying out some new exercise classes and home workouts until I find something that works for me. I am charging my fitbit as we speak and will be looking at some local gyms once I finish this post.
I actually feel quite giddy and excited by the idea of popping to the gym after work or doing a sunday morning class. It’s been almost two years now since I got really into working out and I can’t wait to get that post workout buzz and start seeing some good results.
Wish me luck galpals, I will need it.
What are your goals for 2018? I would love to hear them. I would also appreciate suggestions for exciting classes that offer something different and keep you going back for more.
