Three Tips for Staying Consistent with Lifestyle Changes

If you have decided that it is time to take up a new, healthy lifestyle, then that’s great. Choosing to do this and get started is one of the toughest parts of the process, so it’s fantastic that you have taken this step. However, the next thing that you need to do is stick to it! This is easier said than done, so here are three tips for staying consistent with lifestyle changes. Be Mindful of What You’re Eating One thing you must do to stick to lifestyle changes is to watch what types of foods you eat. Most people do not like to do this, and at times it can become obsessive, so watch out for signs with this and seek help if needed. But, you need to watch what you’re putting into your body, especially if you are following a specific diet. For example, you need to know what foods to avoid on keto if you adopted this lifestyle specifically, and the same goes for any other disciplined eating plan. There is always going to be a list of forbidden foods, and you must know what they are if you want the best (and healthiest) results. If you aren’t following… View Post
How To Implement Healthy Changes This Spring

How To Implement Healthy Changes This Spring

Deciding to change your life to reform poor habits can be a major change in your life. You may feel ready to implement healthy changes this spring by getting rid of the processed food in your cupboards and join a gym, but have you ever stopped to think that this may have the opposite effect on what you are trying to achieve? Dramatic lifestyle changes have long been considered unsustainable. Attempting to do too much all at once can lead to you feeling physically and mentally exhausted and demotivated.  Although willpower and motivation are admirable traits, you want to make sure that you make sure that your actions have a long-lasting and sustainable impact on your life.   HOW TO IMPLEMENT HEALTHY CHANGES THIS SPRING MAKE SLOW CHANGES  Going to the gym little and often will help you make long-term improvements rather than jumping right in to work out every day and overdoing it. If you do this, you may sustain an injury and require physiotherapy.  ADJUST YOUR DIET SLOWLY Try not to cut too much at any time. Work towards more significant changes by cutting down on unhealthy foods and gradually adding more fruit, vegetables, and healthy snacks. Depriving yourself is only going… View Post

Coping with Post-Holiday Blues

Coping with Post-Holiday Blues

Do you find it hard getting back into the swing of normal life after the holidays? Most of us do to some extent. The holidays aren’t just a couple of special day after all. We spend all of December preparing, shopping, enjoying festive treats and events and getting excited for the holidays. You might start even earlier, and it can feel like you’re leading an alternate life in the run-up to the big day. Then, there is the weird week when no one knows what day it is, and the passage of time is marked by how many pieces of Quality Street are still in the box.  Suddenly, the tree is down, and we’re back to work/braving school runs and expected to return to normal, as though nothing has happened. Some of us find ourselves dealing with post-holiday blues and even depression. Here are some of the things that you can do to help yourself adjust back to your daily life, minimising the blues as much as possible.  Deal with Any Health Issues Sometimes, the holidays, highlight significant issues with our health and fitness we might have been ignoring for some time. When we’re looking at resolutions or reflecting on the year… View Post
Fit & Fab Boot Camp Workout

Fit & Fab Boot Camp Workout

Happy Wednesday! I always think of Wednesday as the ‘springboard’ day of the week, because doesn’t it feel like the second it passes Sunday is here already? I dunno, maybe that’s just me, but lately, life is just going by so quickly. via GIPHY I was sick for about six weeks, and during that time I couldn’t workout much, and it was making me so down in the dumps. I have such a hard time when I think back to the long periods in my life when I didn’t exercise regularly (even just moving my arms!) — no wonder I turned to other things to try and make myself feel human. It is always so humbling when I’m getting back into the swing of exercising after many weeks of not having the ability to do so. I think of this whenever I think of people getting started with fitness — maybe for the first time in their life. Exercise doesn’t have to be complicated — in fact, it isn’t — the best advice I can ever give about getting into shape or coming out of a fitness ‘slump’ is to find something you like and take it one workout at… View Post
