January is going to be a fantastic month!
- I turn 30!
- I am going skiing to Italy!
- I am going to see Jillian Michaels in Cardiff – FRONT ROW VIP!
I am actually looking forward to turning 30 and leaving my twenties behind. The last decade hasn’t been a great one for me. I have learnt a lot and will be taking a lot of things forward in to the next decade to make it a good one. I feel as though I will be entering the next phase of my life and there are lots of possibilities for where my life might go.
I haven’t been on a proper holiday since before I bought my house, so I have always planned to go away for my 30th. I chose skiing as it is something I enjoy, but don’t get to do too often. Plus it makes a perfect January holiday destination. My sister and I chose Italy as we love that country, but have never been skiing there. I go on my actual birthday and will be spending the first week of my thirties enjoying myself in the mountains.
Then last night I received the email to say Jillian Michaels is coming to the UK for her Maximise Your Life tour and I had to get myself a ticket. I went on and had a look at costs and then found I could get a third row ticket and then got really excited. I then realised there was a different link in the email and got a middle front row ticket with VIP meet and greet and couldn’t turn it down. It’s on the pricey side, but I have been a big fan of Jillian Michaels for a long time and have followed her tour through her podcasts wishing she would come over to the UK.
All of this has given me determination and motivation to get myself focused on my nutrition and to build my fitness base back up so I can enter my thirties with the results I wanted from Project Lifestyle in the first place. I am feeling really positive and in a good place. I still have low moments, but I have the tools in place to make sure I come through them and learn from them. I am being more social then I have been in a few years and although I choose which events I go to, I am excited about finding new friends and enjoying my fitness clubs. Volunteering for events and swim coaching has been a fantastic thing for me. Getting my kittens has my house feel like a proper home. I really feel like the last year of my twenties I have stepped up my game and focused on the things that really matter to me, and stopped fretting about the things that don’t.
So as you can probably tell I am really looking forward to January!
I am also looking forward to December as I love Christmas too!
