Think Fit: Nutrition Slip up

Have you had a slip up with your eating? Indulge into some cake or overate? Don’t stress and throw the towel in. Consistency is the key and you need to be thinking long term not short term. You don’t do this for 6 weeks and then go back to your old habits, no, you keep at it – pushing yourself to be healthier, fitter and stronger and eating better with each day.  You still have to live and enjoy yourself just make sure your next meal is healthy and you are back on track!

Eat Fit: Adding Omega 3 fats

If you suffer with inflammation? Omega 3 fats is what you need. Less inflammation = less puffiness and bloating, better sleep and digestion, clearer skin and shinier hair. Omega 3 also encourages your body to burn stored fats. Omega 3 can be found in salmon, chia seeds, flaxseeds, mackerel and walnuts or fish oil supplements.

Food Inspiration: Chia Pudding

1 scoop of chia seeds to a bowl, pour liquid (water, almond milk, coconut milk etc) over the top to cover completely. Now add in your choice of chopped fruit, nuts etc and then pop this beauty into the fridge. And you will have yourself a little chia pudding within an hour or so.

Be Fit: It’s time to get out your skipping rope as this week’s workouts are based around skipping.

  • Skipping is an excellent form of cardio – improving your cardiovascular health
  • Improves your footwork, balance, coordination and agility
  • It is a cheap piece of equipment and travel friendly
  • studies show that skipping puts lesser pressure and is less shocking for the joints than running
