It's January.  Possibly the most loaded month of the entire calendar year.  Heavy with resolution and expectation, and for some, just plain heavy after a month or more of holiday festivities!  Rather than write a treatise on the why's, how's and wherefore's of detoxing, goal setting and positive mindfulness, we thought we'd give you the inside track on what we're all doing to kick start our years. 

The Brief

Everyone was asked three questions, answers for which they had to deliver in 60 seconds.  Not everyone succeeded!  Surprisingly, Rob managed in 58 seconds, with Michelle a very close second at 60.1.  Sadly Meleni gets the wooden spoon, but hopes that you're just too interested to notice.  The questions were:

  1. What did your full-length mirror (FLM) moment on 2nd January elicit? 
  2. What new lifestyle choices are you making for 2015
  3. Why?

We should add, had Rob included his cycling goals for 2015, he would have slipped from his current position on the league table!
