One of the biggest challenges I faced during 2019, was my ability to stay consistent with the goals I have set to myself. But that only taught me how to improve my goals for the years to come. I do not believe in yearly resolutions, but firmly so in yearly themes. 2019 was themed as “The Year of Me” and it was about bringing personal improvements and maintaining them to become the person I aspire to be. I have learned so much in the last year that I will not call it a failure even though I did not achieve the points that I wanted to reach.
During the year, many things have happened that were both good and bad. Starting the year I managed to lose about 11 kilograms off my weight through the keto diet, and it felt great! I felt lighter and more energetic. I did have to stop due to difficulties in my schedule and other personal reasons, but I would do it again, and most probably soon.
Losing weight proved to me that it is possible since I have always struggled with the way I looked or how much I weighed. It showed that with a bit of inconvenience and consistency a lot can be achieved.
In addition to that, in 2019, I realized one of the most important things in my life. Something that I honestly should’ve realized long ago. This is something that I believe so many people face and are struggling with; Lack of motivation does not decide when I do work or when I don’t.
The feeling of being motivated that some of us get right after a hot shower on a cold night or after a great workout does help a lot to get things started, but it does not last long enough to maintain the new change we’re trying to implement in our life at the point.
