Today marks the first day, in my opinion, of the whole autumn/halloween/Christmas season. And let me tell you, it is my most favourite season of all!!
I love the change of colours, the leaves on the ground and the rain. There’s nothing better than wrapping up warm, putting on some wellies and getting out and about. Surprisingly I enjoy walking outdoors, particularly down the beach, more in the winter than I do in the summer. There’s something about the cold, wet sea air that does it for me.
It’s officially kind-of-acceptable to start watching Christmas movies and the perfect
weather to dust off the slow cooker. Not to mention the countless hot chocolates with cream and marshmallows!
With a new month and a new season (I know it’s not actually the start of a new season), it seems like a great opportunity for a new beginning.
I have been working on my mental health and wellbeing, and feel very focused on creating a better life. Not only for me but for Nick as well; he has been, and continues to be, the most amazing support. It’s time to reinvent myself and break outside of comfort zone.
Yes I still have some work to do to get back to 100% and that won’t come easily but I’m more determined than ever to do it.
With just 12 weeks until Christmas Eve (I can’t believe it either), here are the things I would like to achieve:
- Complete Couch to 5k – I always seem to start running in the winter so this year is no exception
- Re-join a Slimming World group – something I’ve been considering for a while so the countdown to Christmas seems like the perfect opportunity
- Finish my project – I’ve been working on something which should be completed in the next couple months so will share details at a later date
- Get back to the gym – I’ve really ditched out at the gym of the last couple months but aim to get back to going twice a week minimum.
Let’s set some goals and smash them!
