‘You are what you eat’

Rainbow Fritters

RecipeIngredients:

1/2 Small tin sweetcorn
1/2 chopped onion
3 Tablespoon cooked peas
1/2 Chopped red pepper
4 Eggs
Salt & pepper to taste

How to:

Mix all the ingredients together. Add some coconut oil to a hot pan. Split the mixture into four and cook like small pancakes. Flip and make sure they're cooked through. I serve mine with a poached egg.

You could enjoy these with chicken sausages, bacon, halloumi or on their own.

‘Feel the fear - but do it anyway’

Summer’s coming.
Holidays are booked.
Shops are starting to fill with new collections of swimwear.

And lots of people are not ready.

But now is the time to start taking those steps to feeling confident on holiday, and not panicking two weeks before, when you end up doing something drastic which makes you miserable (and 100% ensures you put any pre-holiday weight loss back on).

I’m going to share with you my FIVE Top Tips you MUST do now if you seriously want to look and feel better in time for Summer.

#1 MOVE

Too many people do not move enough. We’re encouraged to do so much sitting these days. In work, travelling, coffee shops and not getting enough activity.

To get great results, toning, defining and looking better you do NOT need to do things you hate or will take hours on end. Plan in your week to do 2-3 (High Intensity Interval Training) HIIT/weight sessions and 2-3 walks.

You don’t have to do something every day, just aim for 3 times per week to start and STAY CONSISTENT.

You must do it regularly and if you really don’t like exercise – try and find something you do enjoy. You’ll have a far better chance of sticking to it. When you decide what you’d like to do START NOW!!

#2 EAT PLENTY

The LAST thing you need to do is think you’re going on a ‘Diet’ and restricting your food. All that will happen is you’ll obsess over what you can’t have: you’ll feel miserable, you’ll do more harm than good and, because you won’t be giving your body what it needs, you’ll end up doing the opposite, by overeating and telling yourself you’re a failure.

Anyone would be like that if they were surviving on too few calories and tiny meals.

Food is amazing. We can and should enjoy it, and feel good from it.

Make sure you eat plenty of good, healthy real food.

Prep your meals.
Keep them balanced and you will easily get that calorie deficit you need to lose weight.

PLUS you can still have a little of what you fancy without feeling guilty!

#3 WRITE A 7-DAY GOAL PLAN

Spending 10 minutes on a Sunday writing down a quick plan of what you’ll do over the next seven days could be the #1 task to help you stay focused and in control.

When you write things down, you re-confirm them.
You set tasks so you follow them.
It gives you clarity on what to do.

Just tick once you’ve done the task and you’ll have so much more motivation each week.

#4 FIND SOMEONE LIKE YOU

Who else do you know who could help you?

Friend? Partner? Colleague? Family member? Trainer/Coach?

When you’re on your own it’s easy to give in on yourself and let yourself down.

I’ve spoken time and time again to women who desperately want to lose weight but STILL don’t take up the opportunity to get support and improve their chances of success.

When you make your goals public to at least one other person, it helps you to be a bit more accountable. Then take action on it. Get someone to help you. Someone who you can questions, who can keep your enthusiasm up and keep on going.

It really is not easy making change but you’ll get by with a little help from a friend!

#5 START NOW!!!

NOW
NOW
NOW

Don’t leave it too late.

If you have something you’re looking forward to, get the date out now.

Work out how long you have to make the change.

What would you LOVE to achieve in 12 weeks?

Here are a few goals targets that I KNOW could be achieved depending on different goals:

  • Lose a pound a week.
  • Drop a dress size.
  • Get into those clothes which are a bit snug.
  • Wear a vest top and be confident showing your arms.
  • Put a bikini on and not feel like you have to breathe in.

12 weeks could make a significant difference, in fact even if you had something coming up where you only had 3 or 4 weeks….or 15-18 weeks to go.

START NOW!

Here’s a little video to help you get motivated.
