Since I missed the actual New Year resolution making, I’ve decided tonight, poised on the cusp of the new (financial) year, to make a fresh start. My health has suffered this year and I need a boost to get me going. My kids need me to be as healthy and well as I can be and with Winter upon us, I don’t want to get sick when I’m not feeling my best. SO, here I am saying ‘out loud’ that from tomorrow, July 1st 2015 I am going to concentrate on me a little more, and a lot more on being healthy. I need to exercise more and eat healthier. Like so many of us, I get caught up in looking after the kids and the busy everyday life and end up eating on the hop, staying up too late just to get everything done, and not taking care of myself.

From tomorrow, I’m going to be kinder to myself, treat myself with little luxuries like a new book, a bath or foot spa or just some me time every now and then, rather than a coffee and some chocolate! Like many, I eat when I’m emotional – whether it’s sad, tired, annoyed or even happy, I tend to cope by eating the wrong thing – often not even really wanting it, so wish me luch as I try to change my ways – again – and for real this time!

I’m hoping having a significant ‘start date’ will help! Wish me luck!
