January has flown past and you should be well into your new lifestyle regimes by now, but it’s the next two weeks that really counts … because all the research shows that people normally only last six weeks before they return to the couch! So with that in mind, I thought I’d give you my thoughts on what the coming 11 months hold for you.
What will be massive in 2016? I actually have the answer to this! I can guarantee that almost everyone wants:
- To lose weight
- To improve their general health and lifestyle
- To be fitter
Sounds like you? Then you’re in the right place! Stick with us for the year, follow the tips in our regular newsletters, come along to our classes and you’ll achieve all those things by the end of the year!
- Get more sleep – at least 7-8 hrs daily. Most nights I do get enough sleep, but I want to make those good nights more consistent.
- Drink more water. This isn’t about the Evian scam encouraging us all to drink at least 2 litres every day – because the health benefits were never proven! But I am aiming to drink at least 1 litre of water throughout the day, in addition to the extra H2O I consume in other drinks such as tea… yes, it all counts!
3. Consume even more green veg. (Sorry, Annie!) Green veg has huge benefits for weight, health and overall well-being and not many of us eat nearly enough. So I will be going for that rainbow of colour of fresh vegetables and salad produce with every dinner. I also increase my intake of blueberries. Described as the world’s healthiest fruit, blueberries help with cholesterol levels, bone density, hearth health and more … definitely worth including in the diet!
So what are your three fitness goals for 2016? It would be great to hear from you! Let me know what you want to achieve this year and I can hold you accountable – and likewise, you can do the same with me. Believe me, being held accountable really works.
