I can’t believe that a new year is just a couple of days away. Those who know me will know that 2014 wasn’t a good year for me, and I didn’t have any expectations for 2015 however significant things have happened – notably my fibromyalgia diagnosis. If 12 months ago you had told me I would get that in 2015 I would have laughed at you, I was sure I would just carry on feeling rubbish without anyone believing me.
Now 2016 is upon us I am setting myself some goals. Usually I start every year with the same goals, lose weight, save money etc etc and whilst I do want to do them my actual goal for 2016 is
– To get my body at fit and healthy as possible
Ok, So I do want to lose weight but the difference between this coming year and the previous years – I am not going to get hung up on what the scales say. In fact I am going to try my best to avoid the scales other than maybe once a month and the only reason I would go on them once a month is to be able to chart my progress. My reason for joining the gym is to get stronger to help my body, not to lose weight. Everything I do at the gym will be about improving my muscles not seeing a drop in the scales I just know that as long as I work hard and watch what I put into my body (Food, drink) then the weight will go without me worrying.
I am so confident that by focusing on strengthening my body to help my health issues I may actually be able to beat my weight problems for the first time. I want to improve my physical, emotional and mental health and I think that this is the most important goal for 2016. I do have other goals and I may come back with another post about them in the next few days.
Do you have any goals for 2016? I would love to hear them. Remember you can find me on twitter @onceuponafibro
Happy new year to you all and thank you for supporting me in my first few months of blogging.
