Easter chocolate tip

My butt Hurts

Just a super quick blog post today ….

FREEZE your chocolate.

Yes – out of sight, out of mind.

I’m sure by the time you get to Easter Monday you will have eaten enough so make some space in the freezer and throw a few easter bunnies in there for next time you fancy a nibble.

Have a great Easter and if by the middle of April you are still feeling like you need to work off that easter chocolate then sign up for a trial week at Zest bootcamp.

After just 2 sessions I had this lovely email from one of our new ladies who is in her 50’s …

“I am looking forward to Friday. I cannot remember the last time I looked forward to exercise so much.  I like the variety and the positive, encouraging approach.”

Giving up sugar for Lent

I saw this Chinese Proverb this week which I love….

“The teacher opens the doors, but your must enter by yourself”

Can’t argue with that!

Much as sometimes my clients would love me to do their burpees and press ups, that wouldn’t actually get them the results they desire 🙂

Anyway, hope you enjoyed pancake day – maybe they were topped with nutella or golden syrup, and maybe now you have given up sugar for Lent.

Ofcourse I think giving up sugar is a great move towards better health, teeth and weight loss but I have a different challenge for you over the next 6 weeks.

Instead of giving something up why not add something good in every day.

Here are a few ideas to start you off:

1. An extra glass of water every day

2. Say hello (or at least smile) to someone in the street

3. Add in an extra portion of green vegetables to your dinner

4. Let a car out at a junction if you are driving

5. Phone a friend you’ve not spoken to for a while

6. Try a new healthy food you have never had before

7. Skin brush before you shower

8. Make your lunch to take to work instead of buying the same old thing

9. Meditate for 10 minutes

10. Go for a walk during your lunch hour to get some fresh air

The possibilities are endless!

Which is really exciting – are you in?
