Lately I’ve been feeling run down. Tired and full of the blahs. I sigh a lot, apparently. The quiet of my new office has shown me that. I’ve had such an amazing start to the year, there has been so much to do, so many people to see, things to celebrate and general making memories type stuff. But it’s caught up with me because the choices I have been making haven’t always been the wisest.

You can’t outrun bad choices forever. You can quote me on it. Like the one about not being able to out-train a bad diet, this is exactly the same. I made my bed and I’ve been laying in it but enough is enough.

I think I had decided that next month would be better. I would stop the late nights, the excess of food and booze, the skipping of the gym sometimes and the lack of caring attention on the things that matter. When I had more time, when I was home more, when I got into a new routine I would make it work.

Then I didn’t and another month rolled by.

So enough, right? I’ve decided to start making better choices for myself. More sleep, less 4am parties {though one here or there wouldn’t hurt}. More whole food, less excuses about cooking. More time spent moving and less procrastinating in front of a screen. It’s already almost half way through 2014 so if not now, when.

I’m not saying I’m giving up fun. I’m just going to be a little more reasonable, make some better choices and take care of myself better. So watch this space folks, the complaining about being tired should end soon and who knows what will show up in its place! Let’s face it, probably more posts about going to the gym. Haha.

Here we go!
