The past few weeks have been very indulgent indeed, at least in my corner of the world (though I STRONGLY suspect I’m not alone in this!): plenty of yummy food and drink, both at home and out… lots and LOTS of between-meal treats and holiday goodies… and very little exercise (or, some days, movement off the couch!). Plus I’ve managed to get myself out of the healthy habit of drinking enough water each day, which has resulted in the annoyance of several nagging dehydration headaches of my own making.
It’s been a lovely break from reality (well, apart from the headache bit!), but now that the holidays are over and I’m back at work tomorrow it’s time for me to get back on track with healthy living. Rather than going for a huge overnight overhaul, though… and in the spirit of my 2015 Word of the Year… I’m going to start small and SHIFT back to basics this week. For me, this means that each day I will…
…track my food intake
…drink enough water
…do at least five minutes of exercise
Very manageable… and, truth be told, a welcome return to everyday normality.
Are you ready to return to pre-holiday habits?
