Hi Lovelies :) Hope you are all having a lovely bank weekend!! The last couple of weeks i have been non stop into trying get more healthy and in shape. Apparently yesterday was the day that people start wanting that bikini ready body!! (I do!!) I have been reading womens health magazine online and it really made me think about getting back into being more healthy and now is the perfect time to change. I am a very fussy eater i like good plain food and i have a very sweet tooth.
I am a sucker for italian food a good old pizza, pasta you name it im there. Before trying to change my diet i assessed what i actually eat in a normal week of course it will change as i dont have a set meal plan. I actually realised that majority of my food is bad carbs. So ive been gradually changing my meals with a more healthy approach making sure i get the all important 5 a day or near enough in my diet and swapping things for a more healthy approach. This is not a diet that i am doing just more of a lifestyle change that suits me and makes me happy.
The next thing i have been doing is exercising. I have been exercising 3-5 times each week and upping my protein intake as this helps muscles to recover and also doesnt make you ache as much the next day. At least two of the days i do intense workout and then the other days a more gentle approach. Circuit training, running, swimming, pilates, full body workout.... Also Blogilates & Toneitupcom on youtube have been fab workouts to do at home :) .... these have all been what i have been doing to work out. I have also noticed a huge difference in my emotions and also headaches. I used to have a headache frequently and now i can go days without one and after a workout i feel fab!! The results that i want is juts to tone up and feel better about myself so hopefully this change will benefit me and my body.
Bring on a healthier me!!
Do you workout or have any healthy recipes you could share? :)
