Motivation

What can you do to make a healthier change in your life??

Exercise
Maybe it’s as simple as adding a few strength exercises to your daily walk. Find a bench, do 15 tricep dips, 15 squats, 15 push ups and keep walking. Find another bench and repeat. If you’re walking the streets, when your waiting at a light crossing do some calf raises. There are a lot of little things you can do to make a change.

Food
What’s something you can swap for a healthier treat?
Maybe for breakfast choose something filling like oats instead of toast.
Don’t go hungry, try some healthy snacks,

  • Boiled eggs
  • Rice cakes with ABC (almond, brazil, cashew) spread
  • Veggie sticks w hommus
  • Rice cakes with cottage cheese
  • Almonds and carrot sticks
  • 1/2 cup berries with yogurt
  • Ryvita with avocado and tomato
  • Wholegrain toast with sardines/tuna and tomato
  • Crispbread w smoked salmon, cottage cheese and dill

Mindset
It’s easy to lose focus and become unstuck, post some inspirational pictures in a clear view daily to look at. Reward yourself with little achievements, e.g manicure/pedicure, movie, clothes.
Try not to look to far into the future and enjoy the journey!
