It’s that time of the year when everyone wants to get fit, like, yesterday. They come down from their sugary stupor that has been lingering ever since New Year’s Eve celebrations, Easter shenanigans, birthday parties… and then it’s summer already, so decide it’s time to lose weight. It’s May and people who are going through this process might be afraid they’re way too late to get in shape. Well. If you’re following me right from the beginning, you’ll know that I don’t think there’s a date by which you have to start your fitness transformation… OR ELSE. There is time for everything, no matter the date.
So, today we won’t be focusing on people’s goals but their reasons to get fit and how to start their transformation. Do you wonder what’s wrong with the picture below? Then continue reading. 😉
Let’s kick off 2017 with some retrospective. But first, an explanation. In 2017 I plan to blog more: write more reviews, comparisons, do #FOTD or #EOTD type of posts… things like that. But for that to work I need to focus on you, dear readers.
In this post I talked about some of the first perfume oil samples that I’d received. Although I haven’t used it recently, Anna is still one of my favourites. I still believe it’s a perfect blend of gourmand and floral notes on a sandalwood base that doesn’t go weirdly dry on my skin. I’m actually waiting for a full-sized bottle of this – it was also bought in a Sunday swap and is now *somewhere* in Europe. I don’t want to turn this into a rant so let’s just say I’m getting really impatient with the post!
I have found a new owner for Smelly Yeti Dame It, while Lou Lou’s Fruit Basket Cider stays at my place, waiting to be picked up. Honestly, I’ve acquired so many bottles and samples in 2016 that FBC got sidetracked but I plan to wear it on damp(er) days (it’s been dry as in a desert here).
Taste tests are something I plan to return to once I get back into fitness (it’s a long story, nearly ripe for a proper, dedicated blog post). The idea here is to try various foods marketed as “fit”, “healthy”, “delicious” options for bodybuilders or simply people that want to reduce their sugar/carb intake but still have fun, lovely meals. Activlab Breakfast Protein was one of such brekkie options but I plan to review protein bars and shakes, too.
How appropriate for new year resolutions! This one was about finding the right time to start something. Most people choose 1 January to make that big change in their life but I believe you should do that whenever you feel ready. December’s a right bitch when it comes to healthy eating, negating your efforts as you go, so January makes sense if you want to start dieting. I’m cringing at myself as I write this but I plan to start over in the first month of 2017.
This has been on my mind for the past couple of days if not the whole month of December. As time moves on, tracking macros is getting harder and harder. Not because I would be trying to lose weight but because I’m bulking, and I think there really is no reason to keep it all on point. I don’t feel frustrated, just lazy.
Today’s post (okay I was supposed to post it yesterday but life got in the way :P) is going to be a little different this time round. I want this blog to be also a place where gym-going people find information on protein-rich food.
