So, let’s see what we have planned for the month of January.
This month will be, for me, a hiatus: I will start my new job in February but I have left my previous one at the end of December, so I will have an exceptional amount of time on my hands.
The highlight of the month will be (I hope) a 10 days detox retreat in the South of Spain. My goals for the stay are simple and basics: to relax, enjoy the milder weather and kick off my 2015 Weight Loss Campaign.
After that, I’ll be having a not-too-stressful move (again, I hope!) to my new house.
Amidst those two events, I really want to focus on my overall health and keep building some great habits I’ve developed during fall-winter 2014 – nothing fancy, just the usual:
- green smoothies, or green(ish) juices, at least one a day
- 30 min exercise, 4 days a week
- 100% vegan (health supplements excluded – damn you, fishy omega-3s!)
- light breakfast, full lunch, light dinner
I have yet to figure out a good way to keep track of my activities and habits; someone showed me Day One and I think I could work with that [The same person just blowed my mind with a shared EverNote list, but this is a material for another post, maybe].
To be honest, I haven’t even decided what I want to measure – aside from the classical weight lost/ savings accumulated/ km walked/ etc. This would usually have stressed me out – Perfection! Measure all the things! All or Nothing! – but I’m trying to be a bit cooler about that, and believe that, even If I’m not going to measure everything since Jan 1st, I could start Jan 8th or March 15th, and the Earth will still rotate around the Sun.
To conclude, a picture sent to me this morning, from a *very supporting* friend:
