Defining your health and fitness goals will make them more achievable. Try conjuring up an image of yourself as you’d like to be in a year’s time. Someone who enjoys exercising three times a week, cooks imaginative, healthy dishes and has a fulfilling social life? Someone who’s 12 kg lighter, who’s given up smoking and who sticks to 14 units (or 21 if you’re a man) of alcohol or fewer a week? Write down weekly steps that will get you to your goal. This week, it could be buying a new recipe book and learning to cook with pulses. Next week, it could be joining a local running group.
