Okay, so the concept of healthy living has always eluded me.
I struggle with the concept. I do not enjoy any sort of healthy raw food. Not even a little bit. Green peppers? Yuck. No thank you.
I have a hard time with this. Constantly on google trying to find the next best way to tone my love-handles or lose 5kg in a week etc. etc. Luck? aah no.
The one positive thing I have realised with everything I try.. Nothing on it’s own really works. But combine everything I’ve read and researched. Well I haven’t gained any weight this year, and trust me I eat what the fuck I want. When I want to. Ain’t no diet telling me that I can’t eat a sandwich.
Now my ‘tips’ might not work for everyone. But maybe just maybe your body loves you enough to give this a go.
Okay so the first thing I have read is to drink water like your life depends on it. This I struggle with, because soda is kind of life. BUT when I do drink water, I immediately feel better about myself. Like, yeah bitch you got this! One glass of water, I will reward myself with a chocolate.
Next thing was to remove sugar from your diet. Now again, my sweets and I have quite a tight bond. So yeah I am not breaking up with candy for a sexy body. But I have noticed that drinking tea with honey or even sugarless coffee helps quite a bit. At first it might taste really bad, but as you take a sip of that godawful coffee, think of the yummy cookies you will be able to eat later.
Then next thing. Putting aside time to workout has never worked for me. I plan this thing, like one hour a day and and and. Yeah no. Choose a body part. Say for instance you want drop dead gorgeous legs. Every time you go to the bathroom, take a minute and do squats. For a week, two weeks however long you think. Then move on to the next body part (still doing your bathroom squats). You want stronger arms? Well before you take a bath, do 10 push ups. And move along like that… Choose 5 daily routines and combine them with the workout you need and you will be well on your way to that body you desire, without actually feeling like you’ve worked out!
Then lastly. This is a recent discovery. Pull your partner closer and jump that boy! I am lucky, my boyfriend has quite a sex drive so it’s easy to get in a fun daily workout. It’s really, really fun to work out this way. I am sure if you research it you will find something stating how true this is. But just trust me. Since starting to see sex as a bit of a workout and putting my all into it, I have reaped the benefits.
If you have any tips or pointers that I can use, feel free to leave them here. I will try everything. As mentioned above, I google, I try and I keep what feels like it’s working!
