With September starting I don’t know about you but I always feel there is a sense of back to normality, do you know what I mean?!
The kids are back to school or playschool, the daily routine starts off again and with that is a great opportunity to look at your week and decide how to start feeling fitter, healthier and have more energy again.
I always feel shattered during the summer holidays. It’s easier to fall into bad habits whilst entertaining the kids at various places, its easy to be too tired to go out for a run or bootcamp, and its definitely easier to think I will start afresh next week!
Strikes a cord?
Seeing the start of Autumn and with normality returning why not start prioritising your fitness again?
Our Weight-Loss Challenge for September has really given a buzz to our bootcamps, with everyone having a new drive and sense of motivation. Its a great vibe and is really inspiring.
If you still want to make that happen for you, why not look to start a food dairy and exercise log each week?
It sounds simple but by writing things down you become much more aware of what you are doing, or how little you are doing!
Aim to see at least 2-3 fitness/physical activities on your list each week.
It could be a Powerwalk, a swim, jog, bike ride, strength/interval session or simple a kick around at the park with your kids.
Don’t make excuses and do it!
I bet after doing it for just a week or 2 you will start to feel better and make sensible food choices rather than grabbing those biscuits or crisps and worrying about it another day!
So here is your challenge….
Start from Saturday, write all your food choices down (good and bad) and what physical activity you have done that day. Aim to improve it as each day passes. Go on, give it a go and see how you get on!
