Over-indulged this summer? Time to get back to fitness!

Lets been honest, how many of us haven’t over-indulged on holiday?  I left for Portugal last week with the good intentions of training everyday and cooking healthy lunches from our holiday apartment.  I did manage to stick to a training plan (if only to feel less guilty about the chips, ice-cream and alcohol I had consumed!  Yes, the diet did not go quite to plan.  One slip up led to another until I gave up completely and let myself go, thankfully it was only a week!

So Mon 3rd of September and it’s time to get back on track with the diet and exercise.  Here’s a few tips to help you get started!

  1.  Make yourself an exercise plan!  Whether it’s coming to classes or fitting in runs or exercise at home.  Set aside time to exercise and put it in your diary.
  2. Don’t overdo it on the first week!  Don’t attempt to train everyday and make sure you get adequate rest in between sessions.  Rest and recovery are just as important as training!
  3. Detox – start by cutting out the obvious culprits, processed food, sugar, wheat and alcohol.  After a few days you’ll feel better already as you’ll be less bloated.
  4. Drink water!  No less than 2 litres per day.
  5. Plan your meals for the week and go food shopping.  Don’t get caught out unprepared and hungry and this is the surest way to slip up. 
  6. Don’t beat yourself up if you have put on a few pounds!  Holidays are for allowing yourself a few indulgences!   Just don’t let it continue now your back. Set yourself a realistic goal and timeframe to get back to the weight your happy with.  With a little bit of controlled eating and hard work we’ll all be looking fab again just in time for the Christmas parties!    

Look forward to seeing you all at class!

The truth about what really makes us fat

I know you’ve all heard me ranting on that fat doesn’t make you fat but it seems few of you actually believe me.   After everything you read in the media I suppose I can’t blame you if you find this hard to grasp.   But I want to let you in on a secret.  Those in control in government and media have been lying to you.  The ‘lipid theory’ which claims that saturated fat is the cause of weight gain and coronary heart disease is based on unfounded and out of date research.  The evidence is in front of your eyes.
