At the rate I’m going, when I’m 30 I’ll be the only person in the nursing home flirting

Wednesday, December 10, 2014


I've been mulling over my goals and aims for 2015 over the past few weeks. Normally, I make resolutions or at least talk about my aims for the year in some sort of post over here but this time it feels more tricky. The main reason why I'm struggling to pin down my thoughts is because next year I turn 30 and frankly it's scaring the shit out of me. In my head this makes it some sort of 'landmark' year which I really dislike and although on one hand I don't want to talk about it, on the other hand I do.

I don't act, dress or profess to be my age, my plan for next year is to start again at 20 – just to warn you. My head says that 2015 is the year to make the fitness improvements that I want to make.... before it's too late (this sounds alarmingly ominous but I have no idea at what age things become unrealistic). It makes sense to me to invest in myself by either devising my own plan of action or (and I prefer) get myself a personal trainer to do the thinking for me and just bollock me when I get lazy an haven't made enough effort.

You can only start to make an action plan when you have objectives set out but one of my main problems is that I can't seem to figure out what I want to achieve. Just 'improving fitness' seems rather too vague, doesn't it? I don't specifically want to be all about running, I do want to feel stronger and I want to sort out my forever bloating middle. What has been an obvious idea is to go teetotal for the year as I'm sure I would feel better for it or at least wouldn't be consuming so many empty calories but in another way it would make me sad to wave goodbye to alcohol for such a long time. At the moment I still don't know.

Slightly sadly,

  1. I love reading this kind of post, the 'real' ones! I'm kinda the same - I like to have a target to work towards - but with fitness it's become a habit that I don't even question now.
    Who needs New years resolutions anyway :)

  2. Sophie, my lovely, if it helps I have a landmark year next year and mine is yours + a decade and I still don't feel like I've got my shit together. I don't feel like I act my age and I certainly haven't got diet and fitness sorted. I've never looked into the future and had much of an idea about what it is I want to achieve. I wrote a post about it a while ago and the response was that most people don't look much further than a few months into the future. You'll figure it out piece by piece as you go along. If you think about it you've probably already achieved more than you realise in making small changes everyday. I very much doubt that you're the same person you were at 20.
    I hope you're going to celebrate the hell out of turning 30!!

  3. Enjoy your big birthday Sophie. None of us feel our age or act it even and that's what makes us unique. As Hazel said even I don't think I am all together and thats fine. I am happy with my life, family and achievements as I don't compare them to everyone elses. My life goals change as time goes by and thats quite exciting to be honest.

    Keep being you hun and enjoy x x x x

  4. Start again if you need to - 20 is such a good age and there is no reason why your thirties can't be that.
