How to lead a healthy lifestyle and feel fitter, healthier and happier

Tags: Diet, Habits

Many people find it difficult to know what to eat with all the conflicting information out there today. Many of the clients I train are trying to lose weight and nutrition plays a huge role - 'Abs are made in the kitchen' is a great saying! There is no point working hard in the gym if you aren't eating correctly.

I feel it is all about changing bad habits and replacing them with good habits. I set weekly goals for my clients which gives them something to focus on each week. We work on that goal until it is a habit. I teach them to eat healthily when they are in control so that they feel they can enjoy the odd treat when they are socialising.

Habits and Associations

Do you have bad habits which you are struggling to break?

Do you form associations?

You can make good and bad habits and you can form positive and negative associations. Recently, I have had some problems with my foot / ankle – so I started making positive associations to fit in my physio exercises… I stand on one leg when brushing my teeth, I do my physio exercises as soon as my son starts his nap. This way I don’t forget and get distracted with all the chores and jobs that always need doing! For me making my foot better is the most important thing, and someone recently said to me… you don’t ‘need’ a clean floor, but you need a working foot! So instead of ‘not having time’ to do my exercises, it is now my main priority and I make time.

Is there anything you need to prioritise and make time for? Maybe a daily walk if you work from home and don’t leave the house? Set yourself a time when you will do this and then you will be more likely to fit it into your busy day.

Trying to keep to my exercise routine when the kids are off school is super tough. As a mum, there isn’t a part of the day when I’m not being asked to do something or else I am tidying up after them… not to mention the running of the business, cleaning the house, life admin etc However, I do always make sure that I find some time to exercise, even if it is shorter or not as intense as my usual workout.
