The title for this post is so apt … I am about to become a humongous cliché and do the whole new year new you thing.
No personality transplant I’m afraid, just plans to improve my health in 2017. I’m doing the whole changing my diet and exercising more – well actually at all – thing. I am cringing at how much of a cliché I am going to be.
I’ve written posts this year such as 47 Reasons why I will lose weight, about Slimming World and even waist training. What all these posts have in common is that I didn’t stick to what I said or did in any of them. I have no idea why my will power is so rubbish.
I’m thoroughly annoyed with myself, as currently I am the heaviest I have been for a whole lot of years. I am almost back to how big I was originally and it really isn’t healthy. Not for my mind or my body.
I’m not a ridiculously vain person who is only ever happy if they look good, but like many people I do feel down when I feel like I look awful. I hate that I am so restricted in the clothes that I can wear as well… nothing fits me. I hate that my back problems are still present. Mostly though I hate that its my own fault.
In case you were wondering, I’m not a miserable crying mess at the moment ha, I just know that things NEED to change. One of my sons has to fight every day to keep healthy and I can’t just throw away my own health like this.
Luckily I have an amazing man to help me. Not some diet guru, personal trainer or military man to shout at me at a boot camp. Possibly worse!
Si is going to be helping me a lot by sticking to a healthier diet with me, not letting me give in to delicious temptation and oh my word help … going running with me.
I’m going to do the occasional update on here letting you know how I’m getting on … whether I’ve survived taking my wobbly unfit self running again and erm whether our relationship survives. All I can say is he’s a very brave man for volunteering to help me and a pretty fantastic one too.
That last sentence I have mostly written to re-read as a reminder when I want to actually kill him in a few weeks time ….
So lovely readers hit me with your best diet tips, exercise ideas and if you’re becoming your own cliché next week then let me know how you’re getting on! For the next few days though we are mostly eating ALL the food … well it isn’t quite January yet.
