Personally I think its the wrong time of year to be making grand statements and resolutions. Even for the fittest amongst us a month of stressing out over Christmas plans, socialising, eating and drinking, together with less time for exercise all takes its toll.
This January I would encourage you to set yourself a series of January Actions. Positive steps towards ditching snacking, and alcohol; increasing activity and making healthy choices. January is a time for care and nurture. Find time for good sleep, for fresh air and nutritious food. The "I'm going to lose a stone" approach is soul destroying and negative; it feels like you are denying your body rather than loving it.
By taking a series of positive actions day by day during January you will be amazed at what you achieve by the end of the month. That will be the time to look forward and set a longer term health, fitness or weight loss goal knowing you are in a great starting position.
This year I am setting a January 'New Year Actions' Challenge on Facebook. Each week there will be 3 positive actions for you to follow, small simple changes to promote a really healthy start to 2016. Ditch the random resolution and join me in positive actions!!

Healthy New Year!
