Put the words “low-fat” or “fat-free” on the label and people will assume it won’t make them fat. But it’s worth knowing that “fat-free” or “low-fat” or “no added fat” usually means more sugar. Simple white refined sugar is the very stuff which converts to fat once in the body.
Over the last few months I have blogged about gym, weight loss and healthy eating but yet I haven’t been following my own advice. I have only gone to gym once or twice a week, always having a sneaky sweet or packet of chips and then trying to appear to you all that sticking to this healthy lifestyle is easy.
I have felt so guilty about it that I’ve even stopped posting updates as often.
I think my first step to getting back on track is to admit my mistakes, come clean about my bad habits and then start taking steps back in the right direction.
Looking in to mirror this morning I could see how the past few months had changed my body already. I hadn’t got to my goal weight yet but I was still looking good and now I feel fat and frumpy. Tonight I went to my usual spinning class but pushed myself back into action.
It’s going to take one step at a time to get back on track but im not throwing all my hard work down the drain so I am going to make sure I get back to the motivated person I was a few months ago.
Every day I am becoming more and more aware of how we are killing our planet and I really want to do my bit to try save it. About 8 months ago I turned vegetarian, it was fist for the health benefits but it is
more and more becoming about ethical reasons. I’m not here asking all of you to turn vegetarian tomorrow but there are ways we can all start saving the planet.
We are told we need to drink at least 2 litres of water a day, and if you’re like me then on a good gym work out you can probably meet that target very quickly. If you are buying bottled water every day to meet these targets then STOP! There is nothing wrong with tap water! I live in the middle of London and drink tap
water every day.
Get yourself a good reusable bottle and start filling it up yourself. Keep some in the fridge if you prefer a nice cold bottle.
