It's been a month since we all vowed that 2013 was the year we were going to eat more healthily, exercise more regularly and tick off some of those things we've always wanted to do.
Apparently, 88% of us fail to keep the promises we make to ourselves every January, and it's because we tell ourselves we'll go for a run tomorrow instead, that one night off from our diet won't hurt, and that this one really, really is the last cigarette (not that I smoke, but I've heard this countless times from those that do!). After all, we've got all year to do it, and if we fail this year, we'll try again next January.
But what's stopping us from making resolutions every day? Today is the 1st February, which is just as good a day as 1st January to set yourself a challenge.
I've just realised that in trying to write a motivational blog, I've inadvertently inspired myself. Maybe running a marathon or cycling the length of Britain sounds like something you would never do, because you don't think you could do it. And maybe like me, you don't even own a pair of trainers.
Well today I'm going to buy a pair of trainers. Tomorrow, I'm going to break them in.
What are you going to do today?
Fancy some company?
