My Final Thoughts to Share With You

Today I would like to share with you 2 Lifestyle tips. . . .

1. Exercise – I only started exercising a few months back to be honest. I was suspicious of exercise after 3 knee ops following my marathon training in 2008! However, I slowly started with yoga. My passion. So much so I am now training to be a yoga teacher. I practice yoga 6 days a week either in class or at home. It has transformed my mind, my body and confidence. I also recently started stand up paddle-boarding with Presenter Helen and my son Billy…And I swim/deep water run 1500 metres a week.

2. Alcohol….mmmm! I am now 12 weeks without drinking. I used to rely heavily on alcohol to self-medicate and to sleep, which was counter-productive as anything over 2 standard drinks messes with your serotonin levels and destroys your REM sleep. I really don’t miss it at all, but I won’t rule out having a glass of red on my birthday this month lol!

How to keep motivated. . . .

 Honestly? There will never be a simple answer but for me waking up in the morning with the most abundant energy and sense of peace. I am sleeping well for the first time EVER.

I have energy when I wake up and this keeps me going: My appetite for life. I am addicted to my energy levels, knowing I am doing the best for my health and seeing my body repay me with love is all the motivation I need.

Having clarity of mind

My Final Thoughts to share with you . . .

It started with a glass of water, Whey Less and a single juice….It has evolved into a way of life that I embrace wholeheartedly. As my relationship with food has turned to joy, so has my relationship with myself.

Make a pact with your body and your health to love, honour and disobey occasionally lol, because I also believe all things in moderation so have that glass of red once in a while!!!

Blessings and love and joy for embracing a new healthy YOU xox
