Over the last month or so time has been very precious to me, I’ve been burning the candle at both end’s and keeping a level of fitness/health has been hard.
Along the way I’ve had to tweak my workouts, plan my eating as carefully as possible and find the time to fit in all my other jobs. I know not everyone will want to get up at 5/6/7am and start working out, I know not everyone likes or wants to run or feel’s ready to lift weights.
I’ve made the choice to pop together a series of posts that focus on lifestyle tricks, a mini workout (that can be completed at home) and a recipe or two, which is healthy, fast and minimal cost.
Over the last few year’s I have become utterly dependant on starting the day with a black coffee, my routine rarely changes..
Frankly it’s not a unique routine, I normally get up around 6am, stumbling around clutching my phone, pop in my contact lenses (so that I can find the kettle) and work on my plan of action. I generally have most energy first thing, therefore a workout is normally on the agenda and after a workout I need to refuel.
I know it’s been and gone but I found all the chocolate around Easter time seriously hard to resist, I know a little indulgence is good for you but sitting and eating a whole large Nestle Easter egg at your desk is perhaps a little over the top. I’m not going to lie, I am that person, I did greedily eat the whole egg and judge me if it makes you feel better but I really enjoyed it.
Then…I had to nip it in the bud.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that no, trainers are not a option today.
Sportwear is what I feel so very comfortable in, but during the day my style is completely different and who doesn’t enjoy dressing up, or even power dressing?
You know what?
I think a short workout is always better than no workout, why not spend just 15 minutes working out than spend the whole day thinking ‘I wish I’d found the time to fit in a workout’?
I was suffering with serious protein pancake withdrawal symptoms when Go Nutrition contacted me to review some products. I browsed the site and noticed they had a ‘Soy Protein‘ option and I was smiling like a Cheshire cat, you see unfortunately my body was struggling with processing whey protein and I was very keen to try an alternative.
