My New Year’s Resolution (inspired by the babies)

One thing that a lot of the ladies tell me 

Is that they were always brought up having to finish their dinner / what’s on their plate.

And I totally get that.

My Italian background means you don’t love Nonna unless you eat 5 plates of pasta and meatballs haha..

And I’m a big believer in sharing the ‘FULL STORY’

Rather than  just pretending that I’m ‘perfect’ just because I’m a Registered Nutritionist etc..

so just to give you some perspective

I have some ‘let-downs’, ‘failures’ and ‘shortcomings’ too…

BUT .

Best thing about this?

That’s where we often learn the most about ourselves…

And it actually tells us what we need to do..

For example, although I had many successes in 2019:

*Helping more ladies than I ever have done free themselves from crash diets, develop positive relationships with food and actually enjoy exercise

*Releasing my second book on Amazon

*Being the strongest I have been in years

*Taking up meditation

*Lecturing at Oxford Brookes University 

*Looking after my daughters 4 days a week

I have also had some struggles:

*Not quite hitting my New Year’s Resolution 

* Not letting go quick enough of certain things that were holding me back

*Not finishing my childrens story book which I said I’d finish last year (it WILL be done soon)

*Taking less time off than I planned to and not switching off when I said I would

*went for a run, was exhausted and felt unfit…

*finishing my kids leftovers mindlessly

And on that note…

On to my New Year’s Resolutions …

To stop finishing my daughters leftovers at dinner.

Ever done that one?

And this isn’t just to reduce mindless eating

But because of the fact kids learn from what they see…

And it’s not a great habit.

Plus, it means my lunch for tomorrow is done as I can save it for then…

So quite a few ‘failures’ you could say?

Depends which way you look at it I suppose

as WITHOUT these ‘so called’ failures or setbacks…

there is NO success

So you could say..

That failing is a good thing?

Because when you keep going?


you can learn from and USE those failures..

just like I have done with my other New Year’s Resolutions to help me get fitter, switch off and spend more time with family:

*Have a baby free meal with Mrs Fruci every week

*Get fitter I have signed up for a Spartan race in April so I have no choice but to get fit…

*Stop mindlessly finishing the babies dinner…

*Getting my children’s book out by June

And all this goodness…

All this motivation

Came from failures …

And flipping failures into motivation

Is exactly what we do in our kickstart meetings where we put together a step by step, day by day plan

To help you get motivated, stay accountable and feel better about the way you look and feel.
