Take It In Your Stride

It’s fair to say that December has been a very challenging time for me.

Changes in my meds that had implications to weight abs general well-being.

Pivoting a business to make sure it sees 2021 and then being inundated with bookings for our online tastings.

Having fun another business that has been on full steam ahead since the March lockdown. I shouldn’t complain when others are finding things extremely tough.

And a third business that is growing faster than any of its founders anticipated.

All of this took its effect on my mental health with stress trying to creep back into my life.

My routine was mucked up.

No more early nights and early rides with long walks and pre dawn work routines.

I went totally off the tracks. I stopped recording my macros and felt as if all I needed was my comfort food

Remarkably I managed to keep my weight in check at least until Xmas. Then it was enjoyment over calories.

As I enter another lockdown of sorts, I’m already thinking about how I need to make changes in 2021.

Everything mentioned above affects my health and that’s what I need to prioritise.

I need to get back to healthy eating, more exercise and definitely LESS STRESS.

The biggest stress factor for me is work and I’ve come to realise that if I carry on the way I’m going, then it will kill me.

So as of tomorrow I will draw a line under the past month. I will start planning the changes I need to make.

I’m sure these changes will not please everyone but I need to do what’s best for my family and myself.

I’m remaining positive and looking forward to the challenge.

So I say – BRING IT ON
