you are what you eat
As the year comes to a close, many are thinking of those habits they want to change for the better in the coming year. Weight loss and exercise is often high up on the list.
Writing down your goals you want to achieve can help make those goals much more attainable. Reevaluate each goal ensuring they are relevant to your lifestyle, then break each goal into sub goals. For example, if you want to lose weight, break your weight loss down into 2 to 5 kg increments.
Forming goals around ways to help you attain that weight loss are so important. Note that skipping meals, diet pills, fad diets, and starvation should be crossed off your list!
This article from taste.com.au highlights some habits you can form to help you help you on your way: http://www.taste.com.au/news+features/articles/8313/habits+to+change+your+health+in+2016
I love that they highlight some simple points that make a big impact:
– mindful eating
– including yoghurt in your diet
– including a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains,dairy, and lean meats in your diet
Remember to include:
– exercise in what ever way you can. Taking the stairs instead of the lift, measure your steps by using a pedometer, a brisk walk at lunch.
– swop unhealthy snacks: when you get back to work in the new year, keep a little shoe box in your drawer or on your desk with a few healthy snacks. Unsalted nuts, apples or pears, a water bottle, dried fruit are just a few examples of snacks that will keep.
I hope this littl post has helped you rethink your new year health goals! Wishing all my readers a wonderful new year!
