So Christmas has been and gone, we are all still in that strange time where we have to think about what day of the week it is as happens over Christmas.
Well as I look back not just over the last few days, but over December I have to say it has been a great month.
I have had less stress, spent less money and had more enjoyment than any Christmas I can remember.
I had a plan and I stuck to it, and the plan worked and delivered what I expected.
By having a clear plan for what I was doing over the festive period and having a plan around my fitness that helped me keep my mind of shopping resulted in getting to where I wanted to be as I write this.
I planned to enjoy food but not too much, this helped me actually lose a pound over the last week. I kept up with my running ahead of my first ParkRun tomorrow and my budget for spending was kept comfortably within.
2019 is just around the corner and planning that is my focus over this weekend, so when most of the world is waking up on New Year's day nursing a hangover, I will already be out running and have a plan for the New Year to get into.
Planning is not difficult, it makes a massive difference to your chances of achieving anything and nothing builds confidence like nailing a plan.
