New Year’s Resolutions

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Hero's Blog features here.

I don’t want to make you jealous so early in the New Year, but check out my fantastic bum! Oh alright, this is actually my bum in about 20,000 squat thrusts time but *sigh* isn’t it a work of art?

You’re either a New Year’s Resolutionist or not. I am one. I like Resolutions. They frame the year, encourage perspective, empower with new goals (to fail miserably at, I grant you, but still).

Usually I’m all about dieting, self-loathing and abject hunger in January. But actually this year is different. In 2013 I’m chasing health and fitness and balance – which probably still includes the occassional lettuce leaf, but is much more holistic.

It’s the first year I’ve really felt like this and I’m pretty excited because frankly it just feels a lot more sane and measured and grown up and do-able. So watch this space. If I’m still rolling round the village in March, feel free to gloat.

I have other Resolutions. To finally elope with Rufus Sewell. To buy some underwear that doesn’t look like it’s been used to wash the car. To go away with my girlfriends for a  long weekend in the Med. To find time for a bath every week (I want to make it clear at this point that I do actually shower daily).

It’s not much to ask, and this year, I’m going to do it all. Rufus, start running now, I’m right behind you.

    good girl – I’m joining you. I’ve yet to discover incredible, affordable yoga in this area, maybe that could be your next mission?

    For me?

      Hey Lizzie, Happy New Year! Affordable yoga – you don’t ask much so you? ‘In this area’ meaning Marlow?

      Will put my feelers out and let you know. Danesfield House drunken antics and eats off until March when I can justify stuffing my face again. But when we do it, oh boy it will be good LOL!
