Welcome to my Blog about fitness, workouts, diet and about my personal fitness journey
We all have different style for everything in life, different values, different goals, but we all do have something in common. We all want to be healthy & happy.
Our overall goal should always be to prioritize our mental and physical well being through sound lifestyle and nutritional practices. Sadly in today’s modern society most people neglect their health and turn to prescription drugs to improve their quality of life as opposed to seeking to change their lifestyle through nutrition and exercise.
How we choose to eat effects our daily energy levels, cognitive function, body image, well-being and long term health. I believe in establishing personal eating habits that are both sustainable and aligned with your lifestyle, well-being, working schedule, long term goals, family, and overall happiness.
To get results and create long-term change, eating habits must be:
I am not going to encourage ‘cheat days’ or advising you to make radical life changes that are inevitably going to fail. We are creating lasting change. For instance if you like to drink some wine throughout the week, this will all be accounted for and a sensible measurement will be agreed upon. We should enjoy our lifestyle and that does not mean eliminating the luxuries.
Let’s start by clearing out your cupboards of processed meats, ready meals, fizzy drinks and sweets (although sweets may be consumed in small amounts daily if you track accurately). They are full of unseen calories in the form of trans fats and sugar – they are taking up calories (processed foods are calorie dense) within your diet that could be allocated to better food choices that will ensure you have higher volumes of food in your weekly calorie intake i.e. hunger is less likely to set in. Let's face it nobody likes to be hungry and it always leads to binging if it is not controlled.
Below are my recommendations for your weekly shopping list.
Organ meats, liver, kidney, heart.
Omega 3 fish oil
Herbs & Sprices:
Whole meal tortillas
Is This You?
Do you eat healthy, exercise regularly and yet haven't been able to achieve the fat loss you where aiming for? You're not alone.
You've fallen into the clean eating food trap. This is a false belief that as long as the food you're eating is ‘clean’ then you don't have to worry about portion size.
Fat loss will always be dictated by a calorie deficit. Regardless of eating healthy, if you are not calorie deficient you are not going to lose body fat, regardless of how ‘clean’ those calories are.
Life is busy. It can feel impossible to move toward your dreams. If you have a full-time job and kids, it’s even harder.
How do you move forward?
If you don’t purposefully carve time out every day to progress and improve — without question, your time will get lost in the vacuum of our increasingly crowded lives. Before you know it, you’ll be old and withered — wondering where all that time went.
As Professor Harold Hill has said — “You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays.”
You are the designer of your destiny.
You are responsible.
You get to decide. You must decide — because if you don’t, someone else will. Indecision is a bad decision.
With this short morning routine, your life will quickly change.
It may seem like a long list. But in short, it’s really quite simple:
1. Get A Healthy 7+ Hours of SleepLet’s face it — Sleep is just as important as eating and drinking water. Despite this, millions of people do not sleep enough and experience insane problems as a result.
The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) conducted surveys revealing that at least 40 million Americans suffer from over 70 different sleep disorders. Not only that, 60 percent of adults, and 69 percent of children, experience one or more sleep problems a few nights or more during a week.
In addition, more than 40 percent of adults experience daytime sleepiness severe enough to interfere with their daily activities at least a few days each month — with 20 percent reporting problem sleepiness a few days a week or more.
On the flip side, getting a healthy amount of sleep is linked to:
You won’t last long.
