Health & Fitness Changes I Have Made






One of my goals this year like many people is to get healthier and while the last week has been a little bit of a fail the last couple of months I have changed a few things. Here are 5 of the things I have changed in my life in order to be healthier:

1. Exercise
I have been going on interval runs everyday for the last month and a half (Apart from my birthday and a day either side of that, oops) and I feel amazing for it the few days I didn't I felt blah and needed to exercise.

2. Eating what I want
Okay I don't literally mean eating pizza and chinese food for every meal but like if I haven't eaten well and worked and I'm feeling the idea of chinese food for dinner, I eat it and I don't feel bad. Also, with the chinese place I go to it lasts like two or three meals because I physically cannot eat a whole thing of chinese food, so I typically have it for breakfast the next day ~I am aware this is super duper healthy~ (Stop judging me, I am a grown adult)



3. Eating Breakfast ~or at least trying~
I have been eating breakfast to give me extra energy and I find I don't binge laster in the day. i have a blog post coming soon on my favourite quick, healthy breakfast recipes. NB: Sometimes when I have 9am classes that doesn't happen.

4. Stop drinking carbonated drinks
I have stopped drinking soft drinks, on the odd occasion when I get fast food ~which honestly isn't often at all~ I get water instead of a soft drink as well and honestly these small changes make me feel good. The only time I now have carbonated drinks is soda water with either vodka or gin. Soft drinks also has a lot of sugar which obviously isn't a good thing, there is also research indicated soft drinks can cause cellulite.

5. Mindset
I have done almost every diet there is and newsflash they don't work, and aren't permanent! My current lifestyle of eating well ~with the odd cheeky thing~ and working out is something I plan on doing the rest of my life and it is achievable to do the rest of my life unlike a lot of the 'diets' out there.

What helps you to be healthier? Do you do any of these things?

  1. I should really start eating breakfast! That has always been difficult for me to do.

  5. At this point in my life, all I do to be healthier is eating more vegetables and fruits and taking long walks. I need to add to these more exercising and eating breakfast every morning too.

  8. Great post. I have recently changed my diet to a plant based diet so I can focus more on my health. I know for me it has been a MAJOR life saver to meal plan. Write a menu each week and then prepare my meals in bulk so I always have something to grab that I know is healthy. I defiantly need to start working out more though. That is next on my goal list. Great post <3
