Okay, okay, that post title is a bit dramatic. It’s not like a proper fresh start. I’m not moving country or changing career. It’s just the start of a new week and a nice little chance for me to change a couple of things.
So, whilst it’s not strictly a fresh start, in the super exciting, life changing sense, next week will mark the start of something new to me. Not new, new but new by comparison to now. Are you with me? No? Didn’t think so.
I love using Mondays as a benchmark point to change habits. Mondays are a great time to set new goals and try out new things. They also happen every 7 days which means that if you fall off track, you can start again the following Monday without too much time passing by! Perfect!
So tomorrow marks the start of my Marathon training. It’ll be the start of me getting back into healthy eating and also back into the routine of trying to run 5 times a week. I’ve downloaded myself an official Brighton Marathon training programme which is only 16 weeks long so I’ve got a few weeks to get back into my old pacing before starting the proper training programme. I’ve also tried to build up a bit of motivation by watching the Fittest On Earth Crossfit documentary today.
Although I’ve made a start on going dairy free, I want to cut down a bit more from tomorrow too. That’s going to be the main change to my diet as well as cutting back on the general crap I’ve been eating lately. I’d say that I’m also going to cut back on drinking too but I rarely drink anyway and it’s almost Christmas so…well, mulled wine basically.
It’s Halloween tomorrow, which means that it’s the end of #blogtober (I’ll be doing a post all about it tomorrow). Without writing two blog posts a month, I’m going to have a lot more free time to work on the eCourse that I’m hoping to launch on Flourishing Freelancer in December which is super exciting. It should also give me more time to work on the business elements of the site more generally too.
I’m going to use tomorrow evening, as the first evening that I won’t be writing new blog posts, to set myself some goals for November. I’m determined to step up my game in a number of parts of my life and tomorrow/start of November seems to be the perfect time.
For now, I’m going to make the most of my last night of being able to eat whatever I want and lounge around watching TV because there won’t be much of that going on any time soon!
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday evening.
