My Health & Fitness Routine
I am not going to lie and say I am super healthy and fit and exercise every day because I don't. In my perfect world I would but right now I do what I can when I can and I thought I would share with you my little slice of health and fitness
I try to go for a 2-3 mile run three times a week, I find this helps with energy and mood and if you can go first thing, it sets you up for the day.
I have a cross trainer in my spare room so I typically use this of an evening and do around 20 minutes whilst watching my favourite tv show - it helps you forget the time and keeps you going!
I have the 7 minute work out app on my phone which is so great! It consists of 12 work out's in quick succession and it's perfect for days when you don't have time to do anything else.
As I am aiming for that bikini ready body for the summer, I do try and do 50 squats and 50 sit ups every night but because I am so busy with work and my Masters, this tends to fail but it is a routine I want to stick too!
I have a Breville blender which is ideal for on the go smoothies or drinks. I would typically add a handful of any frozen fruit and fresh fruit, either water or almond milk, a banana or fat free yogurt, dates or honey or ginger powder for that extra kick and if you are feeling super healthy stick some spinach or kale in there.
Any green juice is great for me as it makes me feel like I have had something good for me that day. When I popped into Holland & Barrett the other day I saw they had Bioglan Super Food Raw Green Juice which is packed with supergreens, all you do is mix with water and you have a ready made green juice! Perfect.
I recently ordered the Your Tea Tiny Tea detox which is something I have done twice before, you take one in the morning and one in the evening before your meal and it does help with bloating and I find it cleanses you. Another tea i use is the Detox Tea by Pukka, it tastes amazing!
I do try and eat relatively healthily but sometimes that cake or ice cream is just too appealing so I won't preach my diet to you! I have found that M&S do packets of vegetables to steam which are perfect for meals for one, pair this with some chicken and you have a quick healthy meal. The best replacement trick I have found is using rice noodles and quorn chicken, you wont really notice the difference and is great when you are craving that Chinese or tuna pasta dish.
