It’s all over, decorations have come down, cards taken to M&S and at last the festive season is behind us as we go back to normal now. Or is it? For a lot of people January is a dreary long month. Waiting for the next lifesaving pay day is bad enough, but then there are the long nights, the cold days,and this week SNOW!
Symptoms can range from simple grumpiness to depressing thoughts. Mood swings, feeling low, lethargy, insomnia, stress, bloatedness, sluggishness… add
to those a cold or flu that will not go away and there you have it: the January blues in full swing.
But the truth is that the main reason why you may not be feeling great has been your own doing. And before you try your first excuse on me, here’s what’s really happened:
You spent too much on Christmas presents, you’ve been eating too much and drinking too much….December was a hard month..
Food doesn’t just go from your mouth to your stomach you know, It goes to every single cell in your body; it goes from the soles of your feet to the tip of your nose, from the back of your elbows to the neurones in your brain.
Food turns into feelings
Not just into fat, muscle, blood, bone or everything else.
There is a book out there called “You are what you eat”. SO ARE YOU ??
We have set you a January Goal, this means if you have weighed in this year we have set a goal for the end of the month, it may be just a few pounds but this will give you a good start to the new year.
So rather than slimmer of the week lets look at how you did over the month….
NOT weighed in yet….why?
