Health and Wellbeing - September 2013

Don’t fall off the tracks!

12-week challenges seem to be the thing at the moment and are great to get you out of the rut and kick start your new lifestyle choices.
Now you have signed up, the first thing you get a glimpse of is the diet and straight away think “what have I signed up for”!
Don’t let that deter you. Just remember you signed up to change your life for the better. Trust me, it won’t be long until you are trying to convince yourself that one treat won’t hurt and whilst it won’t be the end of the world, it will put you off track and most of all it will make the overall challenge harder.
The first four weeks are the killer, going from sugar and fatty foods to chicken breast, lean meat and steamed vegetables but, by the time you hit week six you will be steaming along if you have stayed strong.
You will still crave your favorite treat’s but as you fuel your body with healthy and nutritious food the cravings won’t be as bad and like all things it’s just repetition and you should now be in a good groove.
If you do cave in and have a treat or two or, even worse, a day or two of bad eating don’t let it get you back in the same old rut, get back into the rhythm and keep going and most of all don’t go out and binge after a 12-week challenge or it won’t be long to you are back looking like the before photo.

 

Be organised

The first step to failure is failure to be organised.
Cook some extra food so you have it in advance, try and have two to three day’s worth of food ready to go so all you have to do is grab a container out of the fridge or freezer and heat it up.
Getting your diet and fitness regime ironclad and all planned out is the key to successfully completing a 12-week challenge.
You don’t have to be doing a challenge to follow these simple processes and with our lifestyles getting busier and busier good planning can help that new positive change in attitude to achieve your health and fitness goals.
Write down your short and long-term goals and keep them realistic and achievable and if you stay on track it is definitely possible to go above and beyond those goals.
Build a motivation board that is one of the first things you see when you wake up and one of the last things you see when you go to sleep.

Stay positive

Remember to stay positive, plan in advance, try and do the challenge with someone as this will make sticking to both the diet and fitness plans easier but make sure it is with someone reliable. Remind yourself why you want to change and how you want to achieve it, it won’t be long until the results begin to show and that will keep the motivation flowing because once you start seeing changes in your body and fitness levels you won’t want to lose them.
