I feel like there is a lot of pressure in the fitness/diet community to have a really built physique… but Iâ€™ll let you in on a secret.
Thatâ€™s never been me.
Iâ€™ve never had abs, biceps are a new addition from the past couple of years in the gym (sporadically), and most of my strength at the moment comes from running.
And thatâ€™s fine with me!
Physical goals are important to have, but those should play second fiddle to your wellness goals.
- Do you regularly drink enough water?
- Do you eat REAL foods?
- Are you getting enough sleep?
- How is your mental well-being?
Fitness during the holidays can be really hard, and to complicate things, the trend seems to be either binge or restrictive dieting during those times. When Iâ€™ve tried to get super fit AND diet during the holidays in the past, my body just says WHAT THE HELL and quits.
This year, Iâ€™m just focusing on being WELL rather than FIT. Compounding goals like this has led to toxic behaviors in the past, so I want to heal the way I treat my body now.
I donâ€™t have any solid resolutions for 2020, but I know that wellness is going to be a theme for me ðŸ˜…
What are your resolutions for the coming year? Have you already thought about it?
