Health & Fitness Tips
21 January 2015
Somehow, I am more motivated and determined to keep fit, get those abs and take care of my health this year. I think something must have given me a kick up the backside and it's definitely working. Can feel a difference in myself and am becoming a lot more confident. Not 100% there but I eventually will. I thought I'd share some my eating and fitness tips I've been following since the New Year as well as clean eating and going to the gym.
- Drink warm lemon water first thing in the morning for a lovely, safe morning detox.
- Drink green tea or oolong tea to help the metabolism and aid in fat burning.
- Add fruit to water if water is too bland for you.
- Freeze grapes. They are lush and amazing and stops my sweet craving. Try it and you won't go back.
- Freeze any other fruit you like. My sister loves frozen raspberries.
- Blend any fruit with greek yoghurt then freeze. Bye bye to my ice cream craving and it adds more protein to the diet. Add a tad of honey if desired.
- Don't have time for breakfast? Make a smoothie and add oats and whey protein powder (if you have any) then blend!
- DIY popcorn. Add the kernels into a brown bag then microwave it. Add a topping of your choice immediately and shake. Toppings could be: whey protein powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, cocoa powder, black pepper with a dash of salt and many more!
- If you're lucky to live close to work or university (5 minutes max), complete the 7 minute HIIT app on your lunch break at home one or more rounds. iOS here and Android here.
- Whilst brushing your teeth, do a 30 - 60 second wall squat. It's a killer.
- Stood waiting in a queue or making a tea round? Do some calf raises.
- On your toilet break, do a set of squats, 10 reps.
- Follow the any of the 30 day challenges for guidance if you're stuck on a fitness routine.
- Do 100 star jumps whilst watching a film or Netflix and or the first thing when you wake up.
I do go to the gym 4 times a week but need to up it to 5-6 times a week. Going to the gym, clean eating and incorporating these tips have lead to a more healthier me. Can definitely feel and see a change. Little changes and adding small additions to your routine will help in the long run. The first step is always the most important step.
