Was January a total fail ? Did you aim to lose a stone, only to gain a muffin top? Join a gym, and go...like twice. Try to go wheat-free, and end up with a serious croissant addiction?
It's totally OK- because you have a second chance! It's called #Fabruary – you are going to totally rock it this month.
Why? Because the mornings are getting lighter, you aren't quite as skint – meaning more money to spend on fresh veggies and fitness apps.
And, even though you didn't quite manage to complete the 'dryathlon' or 'veganuary' ( look after a night on the Prosecco, we all need a bacon sarnie!) you still have the best intentions, and it's five whole weeks until Easter.
That's easily enough time to lose half a stone. I know all the chocolate eggs are already in the shops, but you can pick one as your treat, and when you lose that half stone – you can go eat a whole lindt bunny, because you deserve it!
Mental health is just as important as physical health – so get out in the crisp frosty air for a 15 minute power-walk or just run round the park like Phoebe from Friends.
Do a Facebook Cull. Throw out all your out-of-date make-up and greying underwear. Make home-made honey and oat face packs, then post the results on Instagram. Learn a new skill – like how to say “I am Fabulous” in Japanese.
Only drink wine on a Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night. We all deserve a #MidWeekMerlot afterall. Wear odd socks ( It's supposed to be lucky!) and write a haiku. You can post in on twitter #3linesOfMagic.
Think positive. Whatever you do, don't beat yourself up. January is a terrible month, but you survived. Bring on #Fabruary !
I'm a 43 year old, mum of two little boys- currently living in Shepton Mallet in Somerset. I'm the Founder and Creative Director of Radio Shepton, a Stand up and comedian and spoken word performer, and write a regular column for The Wells and Shepton Mallet Journal. Which is the basis for my blog usually. I lived in Swedish Lapland for 7 years until 2014 where my boys were born. My partner and I ran a husky dog sledding business. Before that I was a poet, radio presenter, media lecturer, writer, TV producer, actress and burlesque performer ! I never want my life to be boring :)
