It’s been way too long since a fitness post graced the virtual pages of PP, but I definitely lost the fitness bug over the last few months. Fitness and healthy living is so easy to incorporate into a routine, but once your routine changes and you no longer really have a ‘routine’ it becomes much harder to stay on track.
Now we’ve got rid of a few stresses (rental contract – gone, steady income – coming, day to day routine – in place) I’m determined to get back on that pony and start improving my general wellbeing.
We’re living with family for a while whilst we save up for a house deposit, so we tend to eat whatever they’re eating for dinner. I’ve noticed that breakfasts have slowly become missed and lunchtimes have increasingly become junk-packed. Whilst I’ve not gone all the way back to how I used to be, I’ve definitely gained weight, feel exhausted all the time and generally don’t feel happy with myself anymore.
A healthy diet definitely consists of a lot of factors, but the three core actions I always do when I need a clear-out are:
- Re-introduce juices jam-packed with fruits, seeds and vegetables
- Lunches become stripped down to protein rich, simple ingredient based dishes
- Treats get relegated to just that – occasional treats rather than daily addition
