February is really the first month of the year. Especially if you call South Africa home. Think about it, by the 16th of December everyone has shut off and those still working are on a go slow. People only start trickling back into regular civilization in the second week of January but it’s really only the third week of January that everything opens back up and then by the time everyone’s adjusted to the reality of working hours, nap-less days and traffic, it’s basically February. With that in mind we’ve decided to go back to basics this month. Forget about those grand plans, shining resolutions we’re talking staple ingredients, basic fitness and simple habits. Nothing grand, but without the basics to stand on, the grand inevitably comes crashing down.
