So you feel like you have tried everything and the weight isn’t budging? It’s time to get back to the basics, build a routine and create healthy habits that with have long term benefits.
Your water bottle is your new best friend –
Carry one with you EVERYWHERE. It’s important to drink at least 2L’s of pure H20 per day. Kickstart your day by drinking a large glass of water first thing in the morning.
Yes, the toilet breaks will be frequent at first but eventually your body will adjust.
Eat MORE real food –
Avoid anything processed and opt for foods in their 'whole form' (aka Whole Foods) These are quality meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, rice, oats, etc. Use herbs and spices to flavour your foods rather than sugar filled sauces.
When choosing a processed food, avoid anything labelled “light” or “low fat” because they generally have a higher sugar content. But most importantly; Learn to read nutritional labels ASAP!
Move it, Move it –
Get your heart rate up for at least 30 minutes a day. It really doesn’t matter how, just get it done.
- Walk out your front door and keep going for 15 mins, then turn around and come home.
- Make a 30 minute playlist and dance around the house… try adding the Nutbush song in there for bonus fat burning points.
- Get a skipping rope! Skip for 1 minute and then rest for 1 minute etc…. Do it while watching TV if you have the space.
- Hiking – explore your local park, hill, beach etc.
- See BEST FREE WORKOUT WEBSITES for some inspiration.
Believe it or not… sleep is more important than TV and social media! Be conscious of what time you need to be in bed to get a quality sleep. It might be hard at first but eventually your body clock will adjust and you will develop a healthy sleep pattern.
