Top TIPS PART 2
1 - Sugar + Fat = Cravings
Often, the craving is for foods high in sugar and fats, which can make maintaining a healthful eating plan difficult.
Try and come up with Plan B's ... Having a snack box filled with yellow and red pepper sticks and grapes can be a much better option.
2 - Start Moving
As soon as you wake up, think about moving.
Personally I always do a 5 or 10 min mobility routine followed by a early morning walk.
Make sure you take regular breaks to get up from your desk. Finally consider a walking lunchtime now and again!
3 - Plan and Prepare
If you know that the stress of getting ready to exercise in the morning ends up stopping you.
Get your gym gear and trainers ready the night before.
Find the things that stop you exercising and plan to overcome them BEFORE they are an issue!
4 - Drink Water
There are so many reasons!
Water boosts energy.
Water delivers important nutrients to all of our cells.
Water helps weight loss.
Water helps you feel full longer, without adding any additional calories. Water aids in digestion.
Water hydrates skin!
5 - Don't Over-Do It
Of course if you exercise too much you will increase the risk of injury BUT variety is key.
If you are feeling unmotivated to exercise then it may well be that you have given yourself too much to do!
Start with 1 or 2 exercise sessions per week and keep it light and easy.
