Runners … Kickstart Healthy Eating
Why are we talking about kickstarting healthy eating mid-January and not on New Year’s Day?
Mindset is the starting point with getting you on track, that goes along with setting an intention to help focus on the change that we want to make. Getting into a positive mindset usually means that you’re more likely to follow through with positive actions.
Thinking about the 3 words which you may use to describe how you want to feel this year with regards to your health, and what do you want to do or experience or be great at with your health this year. Doing this will help you get into the right mindset to approach kickstarting your healthy eating plan.
Decluttering and cleansing your mind of negative self-talk and reframing into positive phrases. it’s also important to consider our vision … “in our wildest dreams how we will be – what will achieving our goals deliver and then we put together an action plan of mini steps, actions and milestones to help us reach our goal and vision. We know the saying “if you don’t have a dream … a dream can’t come true”. Embrace planning and preparation as well as taking a step by step approach. Move in the right direction, fast enough to get where you want to be, but slow enough to make changes that you are comfortable with and can maintain.
A common reason for not getting started on making changes.
How you may approach creating a healthy kitchen environment. Essentially, clear out the OLD and make space for the NEW, sometimes take a little courage and conviction. After the festive season, there can be leftovers in fridges, freezers, larders and it can feel tempting to eat and drink them all up before starting on a new healthy food plan.
We share some easy ways to make kitchen clearing happen!
