Tip 6

Carbs after exercise, working towards earning your starchy carbs. In the last blog, we talked about the difference between green and beige carbs and the need to reduce your beige carbs and up your green carbs.  Read more about that click here

After exercise, especially vigorous exercise like long runs or other prolonged cardio workouts your body has depleted its natural storage of glucose.  This needs to be replenished because glucose is required to push the protein into your muscles.  Keeping your starchy carbs, like rice, potatoes and even quinoa until after exercise will ensure that you benefit from them and you can burn them.

How do you add this to your lifestyle?

Enjoy a Quinoa salad after your lunchtime walk or if your day is sedentary, wait until you have exercised at the end of the day and savour your starchy carbs at the end of the day.

Tip 7

Move more and exercise less.  Exercising 3 times a week down the gym is not going to benefit your body. You will plateau.  Using the same equipment week in, week out, attending the same class with no variety will have a negative impact on your body.  Repetitive strain from monotonous and unvaried workouts will increase pressure and strain in the same places in your body over and over again.  Variety will challenge your body and improve your health.

How do you add this to your lifestyle?

Aim to walk 10,00 steps a day – go outside for lunch and clear your head.  Research proves that taking time out of your busy day to enjoy the outside and keep fit will aid your business success.

Tip 8

Posture at a desk is a vital consideration for your long-term health.  If you are slumped over your desk neck aches, backaches and long-term strain on your body will result in your ill health.  Osteoporosis is also a risk factor when you spend time hunched forward. Your body will efficiently reduce the bone strength to areas of your body that you no longer use.  Hunching over is a posture that means your body won’t require back strengthening, your body gets the message and will not send bone cells to that area because of lack of use.

If you are medicating your back pain, it is a sign that your pain is long-term and your posture needs to be addressed. Don’t rely on pain medication to solve your back problem, create a great workspace instead. Join me for a 10-day Tummy challenge?  10 days for 10 minutes a day using Pilates exercises.

How do you add this to your lifestyle?

Ergonomic chairs can alleviate bad posture, as can your body awareness. Be aware of your  body alignment at the desk – make sure:

  • that your hips are in line with ears, you are sat upright
  • elbows in line with fingers,
  • eye gaze directly at the monitor.

Tip 9

Save time and gain health by ordering shopping online or if you really need to pop into a supermarket, make sure that you stick to the outside of the supermarket.  You will notice that all the aisle of fizzy drinks – which will kill you! are in the centre of the shop. Stick to the outside and have a quick smash and grab.

How do you add this to your lifestyle?

Order organic veg box to your door – count nutrients not calories. I love my Riverford meat and veg box, it is delivered straight to my front door. All the nutrients I need to feed my family and keep me strong and on the ball with my two businesses.  My hubby and I have never skimped on organic food

Tip 10:

Don’t attempt to change everything at once.  Start slow, major overhauls don’t last. You want these habits to create lifelong routines so pick one habit and stick to it for two weeks. Create the habitual compound effect, add in small changes over a longer period of time and that will create the transformation you require to stay strong and focused throughout your working day.

How do you add this to your lifestyle?

Choose one tip and stick to it for 2 weeks then move on.  Start with the easy water challenge, a big win will help give you the confidence to push onto the next habit.

Motivation to change

Going cold turkey with your health involves a strength of character most of us aren’t blessed with. Willpower wanes throughout your day. It is highest at the beginning of the day.

Some newbie runners and exercise queens have been known to sleep in their running gear so that they don’t have the option but to get up and go in the morning… early morning motivation is higher.

Instead, evoke the healthy habit compound effect and make small changes over a long period of time which in time create dramatic transformations.

Celebrating a big birthday Karen knew that this was her LAST CHANCE to get it right and look after herself. After decades of dieting, she had done it all – Cambridge diet, Slimming World. She as great on the diet, stuck to the rules, but as soon as the diet was finished and she let go of the strict 800 calories daily count she was lost. She quickly put all her weight back on.

Karen had done this so often that she felt Get Gorgeous was her last attempt. She was at a low ebb when we first talked.

Only a 1/3rd way through her journey and Karen is transformed, she loves the challenge, her skin looks great, fewer wrinkles and she is not craving chocolate anymore which is something she would have never believed.
