Your work load has increased at work, you are having to travel on a regular basis, time is scarce, and all the workouts that you see posted on our site is all a bit overwhelming. Here are some simple checklist to follow in ordered to be prepared well in advance:
Prepare small regular snacks to take to work with you e.g. make you salads, rise based meals, soups, fruit, nuts and some dried fruits, cottage cheese, whole meal pitta filled with fish, chicken, turkey and vegetables are all good to eat.
Get up half an hour earlier in the morning – you could do you exercise then.
Take regular fluids through out the day e.g. water, green drinks, hot water with lemon, ginger and cloves, herbal tea, and low calorie squash.
Try not to snack on sweets, biscuits or chocolate.
Get enough rest and relaxation after a heavy day.
When preparing meals, make a larger quantity and keep it in the fridge or the freezer.
Keep healthy standby items in your food cupboards and freezer, then you have ingredients to make super quick high nutritional meals like Jamie Oliver, e.g. tinned tomatoes, tuna, sweetcorn, herbs, brown or basmati rice, quionna, frozen peas, spinach, brocolli.
Try not to skip meals as this will lead to low blood sugar levels with will make you feel tired and irritable.
Try not to drink to much caffeine (coffee, tea or sugary soft drinks) as this can affect your blood pressure and make you feel hyper.
Try now to be tempted to get a take-away late at night ant then crash out in bed.
Prepare small nutritious snacks and graze throughout the day every 3-4 hours. Never go more than 4 hours without food and try to do a half an hour of quality exercise sessions 3-4 time per week. At the weekend or your days off get a longer quality exercise session or just get out into the your nearest open space to enjoy the great outdoors and breath in some fresh air, until you can get back to steady, regular eating pattern and exercise regime.
