I have a great feeling about 2016 and know it’s going to be a good one. I have lots of goals and things I know I’m going to achieve, but not without a solid plan.
I’m going to be having a look back at one of my goals from last year and talking you through how to make this year, your best yet!
The start of a new year is a great opportunity to consider what you want to achieve that year and how you’re going to do it.
Last year I decided I wanted to cut back on my intake of meat and dairy and wouldn’t you know it…6 months into 2015 and I went vegan (and haven’t looked back since). I never imagined I’d go completely vegan and at the start of 2015 would have laughed if you’d told me I’d be vegan in a year.
I also intended on spending more time practicing yoga but unfortunately that one got put on the back burner (I currently have the back pain to remind my why I shouldn’t have let that happen!).
Anyway it’s easy to say we are going to do something but, as we all know, most people’s NY’s resolutions don’t last more than a couple of days! Make this year, your year and stick to your goals by following my top tips:
‘No carbs before Marbs’ or rather ‘No carbs before Barbs’ as that’s where I’m off to (Barbados).
I’m a very goal orientated and motivated person and prefer to work under pressure. If I gave myself a goal that was in 6 months time I might not work as hard during the first few months because 6 months is just too far away for me.
I also like to push myself and, whilst I strive to have a healthy bod all year round I don’t think there’s anything wrong with becoming a little stricter and working harder for a special event or holiday- I want to look my best.
So with just under 4 weeks before my holiday (25 days- not that I’m counting or anything) I thought I’d up the exercise and cut the crap in my diet to really see what my body is capable of.
I made this recipe the other day with Mummy Hem for lunch and it is super quick and super easy. It’s also great if you’re eating with someone who eats meat and someone who doesn’t/a vegan because you can just make your own and add in whatever you like. Obviously for vegans, omit regular cheese and add vegan cheese 🙂
