I hate New Year’s Eve. I find it completely over rated and since having a child I have enjoyed two New Years doing what I love the most… A takeaway and an early night!
But! I LOVE New Year’s Day. Like any other day… It is an opportunity to have a fresh start. What’s done is done and you can draw a line and make the new day whatever you want it to be.
Two years ago, approximately 3 days after the above picture was taken, like every other 1st of January for the last 7 years or so of my life, I said to myself ‘I will get slim this year’.
I don’t know why this year was different. I can’t pin point it, I do know that my daughter had given me a new found confidence and love of life though and that was a huge drive for me to better myself.
I think I spent a few weeks going it alone, trying to eat better, half heartedly excercising (still the case where this is concerned two years later 🙈)… Then I stumbled across slimming world!
I joined group and in short have never looked back.
There seems to be an ever increasing ‘new year’s resolution’ bashing on social media. But I encourage anyone who wants to make a change to just GO FOR IT.
Lastly, apologies for the awful quality, mega zoomed in picture at the top but I assure you it is me!
