New Year’s Resolutions: Week 3

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Last year, I wrote a weekly plan to get you on track for a healthy and active life. If you followed the plan last week, then here is the link to this week’s plan:

The Short Version:

  • Reduce your daily caloric average by 100 calories. Write down EVERYTHING you eat including measurements and calories.
  • Avoid the feeling of deprivation by finding non-food activities to nurture yourself.
  • Eat three or four servings of vegetables every day.
  • Save enough calories to eat one serving of dairy products each day.
  • Increase your mileage. Walk 1.0 miles five days this week. You are allowed to increase your speed to the point of sweating, but if you are sore the next day you MUST go slow again.
  • Give yourself kudos for coming this far.

    I really like your attitude to fitness, as its really simple but totally true. Just general small lifestyle changes are key for a healthy mind and body. I have tried so many diets and exercise plans and it just got exhausting putting in so much effort for a quick fix where as the weight is falling off you feel completely horrific and weak (e.g atkins diet) and once you stop the weight piles back on and you feel even more horrific (guilty)! No Gym Required is this new book i’ve found which follows on what you’ve spoke about as it covers all the areas which effect health and fitness such as exercise, diet and motivation. Jennifer Cohen offers achievable tips and advise which I have been able to adapt into my life, the thing which is most valuable about her book in my eyes is that it really is a lifestyle change full of positivity, that you can keep with you, so once you finish the book it will stay with you.
