Let’s cut to the chase! All this new year new me stuff is bollocks.
Firstly there’s nothing so wrong with you that you need to completely change who you are.
Your just fine the way you are.
Even if you did put a couple of pound on over Christmas.
Secondly, if you do want to get yourself a little fitter and healthier and perhaps lose some weight whilst at it you’re going about it the wrong way.
This whole balls to the wall it’s January is the very reason you aren’t in the shape you want to be in.
This all or nothing one year to change my life attitude will inevitably lead to failure and you starting the same cycle again next year.
Focus on making little changes.
Step by step improvements that over the course of the year will get you to where you want to be without being too difficult to stick too.
You don’t need to start training every day and living of broccoli with the aim of losing a stone every month.
It’s stupid and unrealistic.
Start by maybe going for a walk in your lunch break, making better choices when you can with food but not being silly and cutting everything out.
Think long term.
Make small changes you know you can stick too.
These are what will make a lasting change not the ridiculous pressure you put on yourself this month.
The reason you don’t need a new you is because you are great the way you are and who you are isn’t going to charge by losing weight or gaining abs.
Sure, being fit and healthy is awesome but only if you do it right.
Learn to be happy in your own skin because nothing you do to your body positive or negative is going to do that for you.
That’s because it’s not that important in the grand scheme of things and nothing you do in January is going to change that.
