Getting Fit:The Healthy Way

IMG_1400

Nearly all people will have made a New Years Resolution to get fit this year, and I can’t lie although I never said it out loud I definitely said it in my head. (Mad I Know!) However I am not one to jump on the bandwagon of a fad so easily or do any extreme dieting. I have done this many a time in years gone by and learnt the hard way that it’s no good for your body or you general well-being. I’ve finally accepted myself for me after years of tormenting myself over my weight etc.

My guide is how to get fit the healthy way and simple things that you can do that will make a difference to your health.

Firstly its important to drink as much water as you can. I don’t mean sit with you head under the tap, but throughout the day try and drink a few pints of water. You will be refreshed and will help with you body and skin.

Next its important to try and do some exercise! There is no point cutting out foods and dieting without balancing out with exercise. I walk to work every day and back which gives me about 40 mins of exercise a day. I also try and do something on my day off whether its some yoga or even going on the Wii fit.

Don’t believe everything you see on the label and i don’t mean packaging. You can cut out certain things like carbs or all sugar but inside your body needs small amounts of lots of things. It’s good for you to have everything in portions.

Lastly I will refer to hyped up pills etc that promise to drop weight with a click of your fingers. Having never tried them I can neither confirm or deny their guarantee but what I will say again is if they are to work you will be expected to exercise as well and eat healthy. Don’t expect to eat take-away’s and junk food and them to work with that.

I hope people reading find this helpful. please leave any comments you wish.

It’s a New Year, Welcome to 2015!

2015 New Year celebration

We are 2 days into 2015 and I haven’t posted for a couple of weeks. I do apologize for this but its been a busy couple of weeks with work and visiting lots of family, and this is the first time I’ve been able to sit down for an extended time at my laptop.

I hope everyone’s New Year was amazing 🙂 I spent mine with the other half and friends in the local pub until about 11pm then went home and put some buffet nibbles in the oven to ring in the bells with food and prosecco. Lovely way to spend the new year with the bf.

I wanted to write this blog post to tell people about my 2015 plans.

1. To blog more frequently and tweak my blog as my head’s been buzzing with ideas lately.
2. To get a step up on the career ladder. (v.important indeed)
3. To move into our 1st home.
4. To still go away and already I have a holiday lined up and another one in the works.
5. To enjoy every single day…

This is my 5 point plan and no doubt it will be a bigger list by the end of the year. Please comment or tweet me with your plans as well @lauraknowslife
