January is finally over! It wasn't such a great month for me. At the beginning I was left feeling down and my confidence was rock bottom. Something had to change, even if it was something little.
I began working out more. I remembered how much of a buzz I would get after the gym and decided to sign up again, this time two of my best friends joined too.
Even though I wasn't watching my food intake, I was enjoying the release that exercise gave me. I'm mentally and physically focusing and pushing myself. I make time to go to the gym about 4 times a week, for just under an hour at a time. I feel lighter, even though I haven't lost much weight and I have more mental clarity.
I wasn't willing to give up junk food in the beginning but now I'm trying. I'm sure there will be some slip ups here and there but I'm giving it a go.
Exercising plus eating less junk food has resulted in having a more positive mind set. I no longer dread getting up in the morning, I sleep better and I have a better attitude to life.
I'm long way off from where I want to be mentally and physically, but at least my small changes mean I am on my way.
Have you made changes for the New Year?
