    Tag Archives: Starting exercise

    Rigorous diets and bland eating plans make it easy to slip straight back in to old habits, but making small changes to your current can be the key to a healthier you!

    Strict eating plans and an overwhelming diet change send many people running for the fried food in a matter of days. Even the strongest of will power will be tested during a tough diet, and the majority of those that make it through will bounce back to old eating habits and regain any lost weight.

    If you want to lose a few pounds with out going crazy and get long term results you need to make a realistic change in your eating habits. Here are some easy steps to take!

    1. Eat breakfast!

    Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, it sets you up with the energy you need to have a happy and productive day. Studies show that having breakfast as the largest meal of the day instead of dinner is helpful in losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight.



    2. Drink plenty of water

    We are 70% water and that water needs replenishing! A lot of us are chronically dehydrated and don’t even know it so those hunger pangs you’re feeling between meals could be misread feelings of dehydration. Keep a bottle of water with you and sip through out the day to rehydrate and stop you reaching for snacks when you aren’t even hungry.

    3. Eat Your Greens

    Leafy greens especially are packed full of important nutrients that boost your health and have benefits for your hair, eyes and nails. You don’t necessarily have to become a salad eater but add some to at least one meal a day to give your body the nutrients it needs.images-2

    4.  Avoid Processed Food

    Keep the foods you eat as close to their natural state as possible! This ensures you get the full benefits and nutrients of what you’re eating as well as avoiding added sugar which has many negative side effects on health.

    It’s safe to say a lot of us feel like we missed out on the gene that seems to make some of our friends perpetually active. A lot of the time exercise feels like the last thing we want to do and we are masters of making excuses, so how do we get out of this little rut we’ve got ourselves into? Baby steps. Many a professional athlete, personal trainer or gym bunny will tell you ‘your body is capable of doing it, it’s your mind you have to convince’. So how do we start convincing it?images-1

    1. Find something you enjoy.

    Maybe you’re a tennis fan, maybe swimming feels easier on your joints, or maybe yoga helps you release some tension. What ever it is that you enjoy doing, start with that and it won’t feel like such a chore. Stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new is always a great idea too, the sense of accomplishment and the chance of finding something you love is worth the risk!

    2. Get more sleep.

    It’s hard to stay motivated when you’re exhausted, and getting enough sleep is one of the key factors in a healthy lifestyle. You could try turning your phone off or putting it the other side of the room while you sleep, reading a book instead of watching television or saving your bedroom as a place to sleep and relax only. If you are used to working or studying from your bed it will make it harder to fall asleep.


    3. Get outside!

    Walk, hike, cycle, or run, just get moving. The fresh air will indeed do you good, whether you feel like wandering at a snails pace or starting a couch to 5k program. No matter what you do or how insignificant it may feel, anything is better than sitting on your sofa so go soak up that vitamin D (while wearing sun screen of course) !

    4. Invite a friend

    You’re more likely to stick to something if you are worried about letting some one else down. If you really struggle to keep a commitment to yourself make a plan with a friend, whether they are in the same fitness league as you or where you aspire to be a good friend will motivate you to keep trying.

    Whatever you decide to do, make sure to have fun and enjoy yourself, that should be motivation in it’s self! Starting is the hardest part, once you’ve overcome that you can do anything!
