Happy New Year to you ! Today is the historically busiest fitness day in the January calendar .
People have usually finally ate all the chocolates, cake & wine and thinking its time to now hit the workouts. Joining new gyms , signing up for personal training , seeking out new classes, watching the TV. programmes, anything to keep them motivated.
There is so much to choose from out there that many feel confused if not even overwhelmed with choices & advice, especially as media can conflict day to day!
Why is that?
Everybody has there inspiration from different sources. Experience of losing weight with different diets, do Weight Watchers, do Slimming World, try the 5:2 , Have a go at the South Beach etc etc etc
But if they are still on a diet , then they are doing it wrong , so you decide to ditch the lunch time sandwiches for a month , go dryathlon for January but can’t wait for it to end, do you really believe the weight will stay off if you go back to the same habits?
Its really important that you make some solid promises to yourself , nobody is suggesting you should give up an occasional drink or two but every night? There are many reasons for health why you need to alter this habit and the least one is possibly to lose the weight.
Whilst in dry January make a list of these reasons , put them on your notes in your phone , stick them on post it notes around your office, wherever you need to be reminded why you are changing your routine now & why you should change for life.
My advice to you is choose natural food,no boxes, no packets, no tins. Don’t ‘diet’ don’t put a start and end date on it.
Understand the importance of ‘nutrition & hydration’. It may extend your life. It will definitely give you a better quality life.
Think first about putting the quality food in each meal , not putting in the packet things into your daily intake first and then adding a bit of veg to it.
Keep up to date with the latest exercise & nutrition advice where possible.
On So Lean & Clean we do that and give the support that is needed when making changes in life.
