Why is it when ever I start a new exercise routine something sabotages it?
This week I have a cold - it is one of the worst I've had in ages. When I'm feeling sick I tend either to go two ways. Eat loads of junk food or hardly eat at all. Neither of these options do me any good.
What I should be doing instead:
- eat a rainbow of fruit and veggies to combat being sick
- resting / get more sleep
- drink plenty of water
- take multi vitamins to help combat the cold
- I've been drinking ginger tea and eating more chilli and garlic to help too. (at least it will keep the vampires and bats away)
- wash your hands regularly to keep those germs away and dry them thoroughly
Things to do this week:
- Write your inspiration list
- Post your before photos
- Find something that inspires you and post it.
- Move more; Make “YOU” time by getting in more active activities than this week. It shouldn't be too hard to do this.
- Try something new
- Make obtainable short term goals and stick to it (doing)
- Eat more vegetables and protein. (doing)
My new plan:
- Exercise at least once a day
- Eat at least 5 serves of vegetables a day (one cup = one serve)
- Have protein with every meal (part of the Weight Watchers ProPoints Plan) (a serve of lean meat is palm size) Protein can be chicken breast, turkey breast, eggs, fish, low fat dairy, whey protein and lean red meat.
- Eat 6 meals a day
- Drink at least 2 litres of liquid (not diet soft drinks I no longer consume these do to their health risks) Can be water, soda water, ginger tea and coffee (limit of two per day).
- Stick to two alcoholic drinks only 2 days a week
