GREAT WAYS TO KEEP FIT WHILE HAVING FUN

Exercise is good for you. It is beneficial for your health, both physically and mentally. Yet, for many of us, the idea of taking part in exercise is too much like hard work. You probably have many excuses… you are too busy; you don’t have the energy, you don’t feel like it! However, there will always be the nagging doubt in your mind that your excuses don’t amount to much. You know you should keep fit, but your willpower is weak. Whatever your exercise routine, be it non-existent, or every…

WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR FITNESS MOTIVATION?

  Image Credit All that stands between you and the body you deserve is your motivation. But when you’re tired, hungover, feeling a bit grumpy, or just not feeling it at all, how do you force yourself to go to the gym, for a run, or to your class? Trying to push yourself over that lip of inertia can be really difficult, especially if you’re just starting out on your journey. But as time goes on you find ways to motivate yourself, and in turn, motivate the people around you….

DEALING WITH THE DIAGNOSIS

DEALING WITH THE DIAGNOSIS

A few months ago I wrote my very first personal post about my struggles with mental health, and how it as been effected by my knee problems. You can give it a read here. Since then I have seen specialists, and been for tests and scans. As I explained I have had knee problems for as long as I can remember, however I thought I had done some further damage whilst running. Well a couple of weeks ago I was called back to the specialists to discuss the diagnosis. It…

S PLUS BY RESMED : SLEEPING TRENDS

For as long as I remember I have ad trouble with my sleep. When I was a youth getting to sleep was impossible, therefore waking up was impossible. Now however its all a bit mixed up. Some nights I want to sleep at 10pm others not until 3am. This therefore ends up in abnormal awakening times. All of this results in a really bad pattern, not just for sleeping, but for eating, working and exercising. It effects routine and stability. It has been proven that lack of sleep can be…

HOW AN INJURY CAN IMPACT ON YOUR MENTAL HEALTH

HOW AN INJURY CAN IMPACT ON YOUR MENTAL HEALTH

I have forever had issues with my knees. Swelling, pains, clicks, and locks, well the lot you name it.  I have seen doctors abroad and in the UK, private and NHS. The problem with a knee pain is no one really knows what they are looking for. Therefore the possibilities could be endless. However this has rarely affected my daily life and routine. I am generally able to do most things, living a very active lifestyle. 16 hours on my feet, gym, swim and partaking in many social activities. Yet…

NUTRIBUDDY WEIGHT LOSS ADVANCED KIT

NUTRIBUDDY WEIGHT LOSS ADVANCED KIT

Recently I have embarked on a new fitness regime, in order to try and loose a few excess pounds that dont want to shift. To help me along I was offered a Nutribuddy weight loss advanced kit. I thought why not?! The protein will be great for repairing my muscles after my jogs and bike rides. The hunger fix  tablets will hopefully stop me snacking. As that is one of my worst habits, when I work out I want to eat so much more. However that is not going to…

7 FOODS TO CLEANSE THE LIVER

7 FOODS TO CLEANSE THE LIVER

When beginning to adapt a new healthy lifestyle, the main focus is incorporating a balanced diet. Throwing out all of the over indulgent products, full of fats and additives, and replacing them with natural, organic produce packed full of nutrients. However we rarely think about repairing the damage thats already been done. I think this is a truly important step in making your body to being in the up-most healthiest state. So generally when we overeat, or fill our body with processed foods, or are in a stressful environment., our livers…

EAT GRUB BARS – REVIEW

EAT GRUB BARS – REVIEW

Grub bars are an all new sustainable protein packed bars, but with a difference. The thing that differentiates them from the rest and make them so high in protein is the fact they are made with cricket powder. Yes you heard right. Eating creepy crawlies is not as gross now especially since ‘I am a celebrity’ launched. I ask the question though why has noone been taking it seriously. I mean they have such a high protein content, and are far more sustainable to herd than cattle. So I was a…
