It's all about consistency and balance, I'm not a nutritionist or fitness guru these are all from learning and listening to my body. This followed by what I did to give myself a healthy mindset, to eat the food I enjoy and staying consistent with my fitness.
please always speak to specialists and professionals before taken on any new fitness or lifestyle changes.
You are human, You have your own body, use your fitness and health to define your own shape not wishing for someone else's. Embrace your body and use your own mindset with a few rounds of circuit training, running and cycling. Trying new foods, experiment with what routine works for you.
- stay hydrated; Drink plenty of water
-stay active; walking, daily step count is the easiest and most effective exercise for anyone.
swimming, fitness classes a few times a month,
-Write down realistic weekly goals
( 10,000 steps a day, two litres of water, etc)
- enter 5km runs then gradually build up to 10km this keeps you focused and motivated. This will also give you something to train for. You can find a lot of virtual races online at the moment.
Stay consistent; for example, once I've done the school run I head straight to my local park and complete a 45min workout 5 days a week. it's a big open space, surrounded by nature, its relaxing and helps keep me calm, anxiety free and sets me up for the day.
Balance; Example of what I eat in a day, but trust me, everyday is different!
Pre workout- banana and coffee or water
Post workout- strawberries, grapes, dates with greek yogurt
Lunch- ham omelette with half an avocado and spinach
Dinner - salmon, rice and more veggies
Stop being hard on your self.
Be kind to your body.
If you need to run slow, do it.
Take your time and be consistent in your lifestyle change. Shift your way of thinking.
