My word of the year for 2023...

Something I see floating around the internet a lot at this time of year is people choosing their word of the year and I have always wondered about giving it a go for myself so why not give it a go in 2023, a year where I am wanting to achieve big things and could do with some extra help with staying on track to achieve those goals. I have picked out a word that I am going to be able to focus on and refer back to throughout the year that is going to be a key part in achieving 99% of my goals especially those fitness ones that are going to be my main focus for 2023.

The word I have picked for 2023 is consistency. Honestly this word is the first word that popped into my mind when I decided I was doing the word of the year and it just stuck, I tried thinking of other words however, this one just kept coming back around and I know why. If I have consistency I am more likely to absolutely smash my goals and it is a lack of consistency in 2022 that meant I didn't make as much progress as I would have liked throughout the year. I am the type of person that strives off routine and if that is broken it takes me a while to get it back so that consistency I am aiming for is certainly going to be very beneficial for me as it should mean I am in a constant routine and making the most of every day in the year. I always seem to have too much going on in my brain and general life and I end up neglecting certain aspects of life due to being overwhelmed so I am hoping that having consistency will keep me grounded and help me stay on track towards my goals and also help me find that right balance in life which I definitely needed in 2022 to avoid burning out. 

It is consistency that is going to help me achieve my goals and improve my life overall and an area I want consistency the most is with my diet & overall nutrition, in 2022 I did well at points then fell back into old habits however, I know if I am consistently hitting my daily calorie allowance, protein target and just making better choices with my food then I will be pushing towards my weight loss goal for the year whilst also having more energy and feeling better within myself. I also want consistency in my workouts as in 2022 I skipped too many due to being too busy or not being in the right head space to carry them out, 2023 though is going to be the year of smashing every single workout (unless I am ill and need the rest) as I know these workouts do me the world of good mentally. I also want consistency when it comes to working on my blogs, for so long I always prioritise one over the others and this year I have plenty of ideas for each site so I am hoping to be consistently uploading to each site, no month long breaks, I know if I want them to grow like I have my goals set for I do need to be consistent. This is the same with social media too I want to grow on my accounts so I know I need to be consistently uploading content to the accounts to be seen and hopefully eventually grow to he targets I have set for myself. Consistency is definitely a big thing this year and if I build that consistent routine consistency in everything else should slowly fall into place. 

I am hoping that by having a word of the year my goals are kept at the front of my mind all the time and I have a clear vision of how I want my life to be by the end of the year and how I am going to get there. I actually just have the word consistency written on my whiteboard, a Google sheet I use for planning, my diary and even my vision board so I can keep referring to it, this is going to really help if I start to struggle at any point in the year as I can just look at where I have written the word and be reminded of the thing I need to get towards my goal and all the good that can come with me sticking with that consistency.

As I said earlier in the post I am really looking forward to giving the whole word of the year thing a go as I have never done it before but have heard good things about the idea from those who have previously done it. Fingers crossed this works and really pushes me towards achieving my goals as I have big plans and high hopes for 2023. 

What is your word of the year?
