Ok, so this is it. New goals. New start. For real this time! Haha.
Seriously though, I really do want to make a huge effort to improve my general health and fitness. I may be slim, but fit I am not, and my sugar consumption is off the scale.
I’m really bad at sticking to healthy eating and exercise regimes, but I’m also very aware that I don’t want to take my good health for granted and I need to start looking after myself more (I’m in my 30’s now, ’kay?). So just to stress, my aim is not to lose weight, but to boost my wellbeing.
Taking my track record into consideration, I’m not going to go crazy and cut out all the bad stuff, just cut down and eat more sensibly. I’m still breastfeeding, so I do need extra calories. Calories, schmalories! I’m hoping that in a few weeks I’ll be feeling more energised, less tired, less anxious, fitter, and generally fabulous!
ULTIMATE WELLBEING GOALS:
Food goals = more fruit and veg (7 OR 8 portions?), more protein, less sugar.
Meal plan weekly
Water goals = drink at least 1 litre of water a day
Exercise goals = exercise 3x weekly
Sleep goals = be asleep by 11pm (pah!)

As you can see, my wellbeing plan is nothing fancy or over the top, but it is realistic for me. Having a meal plan will allow me to shop with meals in mind and eliminate those daily ‘what do you want for dinner?’… ‘I don’t mind, what do you want?’ conversations. The plan is flexible. Exercising is likely to be a struggle, but for all the physical and mental health benefits it provides, it seems stupid not to have been doing it all along!
Here goes! 🙂
