The days are shorter and the morning and evenings are unbearably cold. Staying on track this time of year is difficult. I’ve had many discussions with TEAM SWEAT members over the last few weeks about how hard it is to stay in routine and keep motivated. I have to say I understand. This time of year is brutal and I have also fallen into bad habits with nutrition and fitness. Shout out to Cadbury’s your Oreo chocolate bars are amazing. . . hang on where was I . . . yes healthy habits.
Everyone is different and you need to find what works for you. Set goals, tell people about them, surround yourself with positive supportive friends and family then smash them out the park.
Last week I set 3 goals – one nutrition, one fitness and one family. I told my hubby who got on board and then we told some friends who also got on board. To make it interesting we turned it into a challenge with the loser buying dinner . . . healthy of course. But let’s be honest there are no losers we are all improving ourselves.
Four people working towards bettering themselves with nutrition and fitness. Supporting each other and creating healthy habits in a fun and friendly environment. That’s what SWEAT and INSPIRE is all about.
These small steps of deciding to make a change, setting goals and creating a supportive community will have a big impact on your health today, tomorrow and in the future.
Challenges are not everyone’s cup of tea, so find what works for you whether it’s getting a personal trainer, committing to walking in your lunch break or cutting out sugar.
The smallest step can have the biggest impact. So why not make July the month you set your goals to eat right, get moving and have fun. x
