Start 2022 off with some direction

Dre Hinds’ resolution for 2022 is to drink more water (Photograph by Jessie Moniz Hardy)

The last time we ‘spoke’ I discussed enjoying our family and friends and prioritising wellness over strict workout plans, eliminating stress and increasing our joy and happiness throughout the holiday season. I truly hope and pray that you did just that.

Here we are now, ready to embark on the new year, having taken some time to enjoy our circles. Hopefully, we made notes about what our resolutions would look like in 2022.

Are you pleased with your list? Is it realistic and projecting success to you?


Personally, I haven’t quite nailed down my goals for 2022, but drinking more water is at the top of the list. Take that as confirmation that you don’t have to have it all figured out right now and that the smallest of goals can make the biggest impact on our lives. Your goals don’t have to be large nor world changing, though that is great, but you can start with a small, daily goal. As I looked back on 2021, I noticed I hadn’t consumed nearly as much as I usually did in the years prior and that’s my small improvement for 2022. Increasing my water supply alone will assist me in my fitness goals, improve my sleep and add a beautiful glow to my skin.

See how such a small change makes a huge impact? Perfect right? I think so too.

So whilst you may not have all your resolutions written down, I’m sure there is one thing you can think of right off the bat that you could improve on for 2022. The domino effect of this small change could be life changing. So start there!

Now, I’m not saying stop at that one thing. I for sure will continue to give it honest thought, have some quiet time, and nail down some realistic goals for 2022, which more than likely will be a strict training programme to grow these lil’ legs. This leg growth journey is never ending for me, but I love it.

Personal goals, financial goals, family goals will all be on this list for sure and I’m excited to see what I can come up with to improve in all aspects.

In fact, I’m excited for all that lies ahead of us once we make the necessary changes. Success is literally one small change away. That being said, take the step, make the change. Let’s begin 2022 with some direction which will surely assist in making it a great year.

Happy New Year fitfam, I pray this past year has been full of lessons, love and growth for yourself and your entire circle. I pray that 2022 is full of success, wins, lessons and more love and that you, my fitfam, continue to remain unapologetic about your fitness and wellness journey (prioritising your wellness), true to yourself and honest with your efforts.

I can’t wait to share more with you throughout 2022 and receive the amazing e-mails and messages with feedback and testimonials.

Have a great day!
