September is for children going back to school, students to uni, grads to work…
As a lot of us return from holidays, it’s an ideal time to assess where they’re at in the run up to the end of the year, and reintroduce good habits that may have dropped during the holidays.
Personally I’m back to the 5am meditation before my workout, with cat joining in, and does it feel good! Funny how getting up 30minutes earlier can leave you refreshed, inspired, and help you manage so much better.
What do you do?
Have you revisited your goals? Is it time for new ones?
Do you want to get rid of the flab after seeing not so exciting holiday pics?
How would you like your life to be, starting now?
Why not book onto my kick start 7-day to HEALTHY, or the 28 day #HEALTHaddiction programme? Or simply have a goal definition session?
Water and water intake. A few facts.
Browsing FB I was going to share a seemingly fab post on water. Before I realised the snappy headlines were too misleading.
1. What is water?
When we say water, we mean the clear stuff that flows out of the mountain stream, and as least polluted as possible. If from the tap, then use a filter, at worse boil it.
It’s not coffee, tea, soda not alcohol (that includes beer my Brit friends). You may flavour it by infusing it with fruits and herbs, it’s nice.
2. How much?
The recommend amount is 0.033 x weight in kg. This is an amount in litres.
Add more if you exercise, and/or if you’re in a drier climate.
Regularly! There are several variations on the theme, and my favourite is the common sense approach.
First as you wake up, to help flushing the system after the night’s rest. Add lemon juice for vit C, add lemon zest for boosting the metabolism. Temperature should be as close as possible as the body’s. (Too hot it kills the active elements of lemon, too cold it makes it difficult to digest).
Then, before meals. Quench the thirst before tackling hunger.
Between meals, same reason as above.
Never more than a half litre at a time, you don’t want to drown!
Clearer plump skin, because you flush toxins
Weight loss, because you don’t mistake thirst for hunger
Optimum performance (brain and athletic), because the right hydration fuels your body functions better
Energy, alertness, less grumpy, you name it! (By products of the three points above)
I think that covers it. Message me or comment if you have more questions on the subject.
🚨🚨🚨 WAKE UP! 🚨🚨🚨
STUDENTS – CHILDREN – PARENTS
ARE WE THERE YET?! MAKE A CHANGE SO THIS SUMMER COUNTS!
We’re halfway through the school holidays. The old routines are left behind, and time is likely filled with all sorts of activities that we haven’t got time for during term time.
Children and students should hopefully be more relaxed now (parents, that’s questionable 😂). The return to school still seems a long way away.
Would’ve it be nice to
– make it a smooth transition?
– see new good habits forming?
– be able to get up and be ready on time?
– maintain a fitness plan if the summer has been an active one?
– find time for the things that matter?
– start a business that fits around life?
NOW is the ideal time to identify what our priorities are. NOW is the time to start going to bed 5’ earlier so that it’s that much easier in the morning. NOW is the time to seek help to achieve our goals.
MAKE A CHANGE SO THIS SUMMER COUNTS
I don’t care much about #Pokemon haters. It’s the finishing touch on my being officially the “Best Mum in the Whole World Like EVER”
Sometimes it’s hard. Reason 1 to learn good habits and build them into a healthy routine to fit your lifestyle.
The good habits kick in, and that healthy routine drags you out of bed, through the motion and down the gym.
Damn! #Usana make the best shaker bottle (and best nutrition too, in my opinion), but… If you blend veg with your protein shake, and the whisk… Well, the whisk suffers a bit 😂
Even @living-fitness says so. C’mon’! It’s well worth the time invested to feel/be/look your best. Excuses or health, you decide.

Optimising a childfree day or weekend
1. Write up a to do list the kids are responsible for so that Dad doesn’t tell anyone off/breakdown/use TV as babysitter.
2. Make sure that everyone involved is aware of said list and expectations around its completion.
3. Grab buddy, and run to the spa!
