Preparation is key to success and staying on track. Whether it’s prepping your meals and snacks for the next few days ahead. Prepping your workout gear so it’s easy to grab and get on with your exercise. Planning an R&R session to chill out and relax or getting things done in the day so you can go to bed an hour early and get more sleep. It will take a bit of effort at first, but soon this will become an easy habit and part of your lifestyle. Start with one and soon you’ll find healthy living a super healthy habit.
Nobody wants to feel hungry. The word diet makes you instantly think – I can’t have, and now I want! Diet is short term, yet we need to eat for the rest of our lives! So, with my guidance, learn how to eat right and eat more. When you eat, you’re either fuelling or fighting ill health. Ensure you eat plenty of real, single ingredient foods. Balance every meal with protein, vegetables or low sugar fruit, healthy fats and the right amount of carbs.
Hydration is key in ensuring your body is feeling, looking and working its best. Get into the habit of carrying a bottle of water around with you and sip regularly throughout the day. If you favour a hot drink, make sure you’re drinking plenty of green tea, herbal teas or lemon water. Avoid drinking calories. Any fizzy drinks, juices or designer take out hot drinks are best avoided for optimum results. Stay clean and avoid sugars and chemicals.
Sleep is paramount for your energy, will power and fat burning potential. When sleeping your fat burning hormones come out to play. When you’ve had a great nights sleep you’ll feel more energised, positive and be stronger to make mindful decisions. You’ll have less cravings and feel awesome. The earlier you go to bed the better too!
When you’re working towards lifelong healthy lifestyle goals, you need to work with your hormones and mindset. The more stressed you are, the more stress hormones will be swimming around your body and the more fat storing potential. Plan relaxing activities into your week such as a candle lit bubble bath, catch up with your best friend or go to bed a few hours early with a good book.
Breaking old habits and creating new, healthy ones will be hard. There will be slip ups – we accept that. You may get a day when you slip up and feel like you’ve ruined everything and want to give up. DON’T! Accept it, look forward and move on. It happens. Whilst we know it’s not easy, make sure you continue to focus on your goals and keep looking forward. Overcoming obstacles is what helps to make us stronger. Don’t let them make you feel like a failure, make them the reason behind your success!
EXERCISE LESS, BUT BETTER
We’re busy, and long training sessions can be boring, add more stress to your day and get you little or no results. When you’re training work hard, give it your all, get it completed and get on with the rest of your brilliant day. When working out, just like our 12 minute full body workouts, use your whole body, build muscle, burn fat, boost your fitness and feel amazing as you see and feel your body change.
Your success will be determined by your thoughts and your drive. Every day think about what you are grateful for, be thankful, smile and you’ll be radiant. The more positivity you give out, the more will come back to you. There are many negative people out there – energy vampires – who drag others down, ignore them and remember how you want to feel and what you want to achieve. Avoid these vibes and practice being optimistic throughout your day. Remember you ARE amazing and your energy will help keep you motivated and inspired to live a brilliant life.
FOCUS ON HEALTH
Too many people focus on the number on the weighing scales. Don’t allow this to be the driving force behind how successful you feel. When you focus on your health, you’ll feel full of energy, your inches will go down, your confidence will go up. Notice how more people give you compliments and free yourself from the oppressive grip of the scales.
STEP OUT SIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE
This is where the magic happens! Life should be full of fantastic experiences and memories. Trying something brand new will excite you, challenge you and help you have a more brilliant life. It’s ok to feel a bit nervous, excited or apprehensive about trying something new, but if you want change you have to do something different. Doing the same thing over again will only give you the same results & experiences.
