New Year's Resolution: 2015

Change My Workout Every Month

   Yes, I'm making the same resolution as I did last year, but that's not a failing. I have a long way to go to get where I want to be, and I knew that when I started in 2014. I still have a long way to go, but with everything I've learned over the past year, that distance has been drastically reduced, and I now know, as a fact, that I can get where I've always wanted to be.
   By changing my workout every month, I can avoid plateaus and subsequently burn off more fat more consistently; I can learn a range of new skills and learn more and more about the body with every different workout I do; I can find what works best for me; I can ensure that I've always got something new to do, and just as I start to grow bored with a workout, it will already be time to change it, or I'll only have one more week to go; I have a reliable monthly milestone.

   It's the best resolution I've ever made. Not only is 'changing my workout every month' technically very easy to do, but in the process of doing one workout a month, I only have a few weeks to complete and master it before moving on. I see that as a challenge so I work harder to achieve it, and by working harder I lose more weight and enjoy it more - and if I don't enjoy the workout, I can go into it knowing full well that I only have to put up with it for a month.

   In 2015 I may well repeat some of the more successful workouts from 2014, but I will also branch out into new things yet again - different dance styles, different kinds of yoga, try out different kit and so on. Given how 2014 went, and how I was able to find a diverse range of workouts to do, I can go into 2015 knowing full well that there's still a lot more to try, and with a subscription to Women's Fitness magazine coming through my door every month, if I'm unable to find anything new on my own, they will surely give me some damn good suggestions.

   I'm really excited to start 2015, and I already have January's workout lined up, which I'll begin on January 5th. I always start my new workouts on the first Monday of the month, so the dumbbells and P90X/2-styled workouts I've been doing in December 2014 will carry me through the new year. They've been effective so far, and I've upped the ante a little more over Christmas to compensate for the food - though it's proven to be a little unnecessary because I've developed far more self-control around boxes of biscuits and chocolates this year than I thought I had, but that's not to say that I let myself miss out!
