We’ve all been there - Quality Street for breakfast, excessive consumption of cheese and crackers, and that’s not mention eating our own weight in roast potatoes. But we were allowed to - it was Christmas! It’s practically the law to stuff our faces. It would have disrespectful not to. But, as much as we would like it to be, it’s certainly not Christmas anymore and that means you’re definitely not allowed to spend your days in front of the telly, slowly making your way through a Cadbury’s selection box. So what might help you stick to the inevitable health and fitness – related New Year’s resolution? Here’s our helpful guide on how to beat the Christmas bulge…
Exercise More With the Help of Our Sports Direct
Well, obviously, exercise should feature at some point in your plans. But the most important thing is not to be overly ambitious. It’s all very well planning to go for a five mile run every morning, but if you haven’t been that enthusiastic up until this point, the chances are you won’t keep it up for too long. So our advice is to start small. Make some changes to your everyday routine and go from there, like getting off the bus or tube one stop earlier, walking an extra lap around the block on your way home, or doing ten sit ups in the morning for a week, gradually increasing the amount as you go on. They say it takes twenty one days to make a habit and if you start with the small stuff, you’re far more likely to stick with it, and if you need more exercise-friendly clothing or equipment to help, then a Sports Direct voucher code will definitely point you in the right direction.
How Ocado Can Help You To Diet Better
Hmmmm, a bit of a contentious issue this one. As with the excessive exercise, it’s often the case that the more you try to do, the less likely you are to lose the weight. Sometimes it’s better to think of these things in terms of ‘being healthier’ rather than ‘losing weight’ and this means small but significant changes to your diet too. Rather than cutting things out left, right and centre, just focus on healthier, smaller meals portions. Winter is a great time to experiment with homemade soups and stews packed full of vegetables and protein - get some inspiration with an Ocado discount voucher and save £20 when you spend £0 or more on your first online shop. If your weakness is snacking, here are a few hints – firstly, try cutting them out in the evening altogether. Fill yourself up with a healthy dinner and don’t be tempted by a packet of something sweet or savoury too close to bedtime. Secondly, swap your unhealthy snacks for something a bit more nutritious. This Graze discount code lets you claim your free Graze box stuffed full of healthy stuff, delivered directly to your door.
