Good morning all!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!
I have to admit I have been feeling a little sorry for myself, last week I had a bit of a cold and was feeling a bit stessed about moving house. I kept my diet very clean (as always) but my exercise slipped, I still did some, but not enough, which is silly as I know that working out always makes me feel awesome!
68 days ago I made a promise to myself that I would be able to do 30 full, on my toes, functional press ups by christmas and have washboard abs. There is nothing I love more about Christmas than being able to fully enjoy the day, feeling clean, lean and fitting in my jeans!
When I was younger and far heavier and very unhealthy, Christmas used to be a day of binging, eating chocolate all morning, stuffing a Veggie nut roast etc. in followed by a not-that-tasty deserts and then not-so-good cheap, nasty chocolates, even eating the ones I hated, as they were all that were left. I would then feel sick, wake up the next day with a headache, clothes feeling tighter and doing it all again.
So last night Matt and I were talking and it hit me that with everything going on that I couldn’t change, the one thing I did control was my attitude towards our situation.
I realised it is 22 days until Christmas and I know it takes 21 days to either break a habit or make a new one, so I decided there and then that I still have time to reach all of my goals (not extend the time frame!).
I have the next 21 days to do some really positive things and create some new habits!
1. Goal- 30 Press ups – I will do my press ups every morning before my green smoothie
2. Goal – 2 Full Pull-ups – I will hang from my bar every day and get a partner to support me in assisted pullups
3. Goal – To feel more energised – I will think about everything I have and how lucky I am instead of what is hard, after all, it is character building! Every time I think I can’t be bothered I will do 20 multi plane star jumps or burpies, to get the heart pumping!
I hope this post inspires you to kick defeat in the butt and that anything is possible! It is never too late!
I will post my video of my Christmas day abs and press ups in 22 days!
What will you do before Christmas?
Have a great Christmas!
