NOTHING TO IT, BUT TO DO IT!

Let’s be honest. Most of our bodies took a bit of a hit during the festive break. We may have had grand plans to be good on the lead up to Christmas, but unfortunately….if it wasn’t your works Christmas party, it was your partners, or your kids or even the streets! We may also have wanted to have a relatively healthy Christmas, but that was until the hams and the pavlova’s came out to play. And then there was New Years. Just when you thought your body had had enough, it finds that extra gear (or extra beer) and you’re into it again! That was the fun stuff….now is where it gets tough!

You see, this, my friends, is the festive hangover. We’re all a little bit fuller. A little bit slower. And a LOTTLE bit lazier. The cricket’s on. The beer is still cold. The kids are still home and if your house is anything like mine, no matter how hard you try and how many chocolates you eat, they just keep coming back. Seriously. Those of you who bought me chocolate….WHERE ON EARTH did you find those bottomless boxes!

This time of year generally proves to be the hardest when it comes to getting our fitness on track. The momentum we had pre-break is long gone. The habits we worked so hard to form have evaporated and the excuses we battled persistently to overcome have come back….with a vengeance. You’re left feeling like you have to start all over again. Well. Do it. Start over!

The beauty of the whole New Year thing, is that it’s just that. A new year. A fresh start. A clean slate. You don’t have to worry about what you did or didn’t do over the festive break, because it’s been and gone. Now you just have a fantastic opportunity to draw a line in the sand and say “this is my year”.

You see, if anything, you’re better prepared for success now. Your body knows that it can do it, because it’s stronger. You know how to push yourself above your own expectations, because you already have. You know how to kick those little bad habits…because you punted those bad boys last year. And those excuses we spoke of that have re-emerged. They remain just that. Excuses. You got past them before, you just have to do it again.
So what are you waiting for?

There ain’t nothing to it….but to do it!
