On St Paddy’s Day...the 17th March...I’m doing a Find Raising Classic. #letsgetquizzical - it’s taking place in Hornchurch...my home town...and I can’t wait. I also can’t decide if I’m answering the questions....or doing a run for as long as the Quiz takes to complete. What day you Sosh...? 👍 For Answering Questions or 🙌 for Doing the Run...VOTE NOW! All money goes to @the_bhf!
I’ve been having a busy day and still got plenty to do, which means I needed to be prepared, so yesterday before teaching was spent prepping ready for today.
I have my overnight oats for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch and beef stew in the slow cooker ready for dinner tonight 👌🏻plus fruit and nuts for snack time.
If your working out it is important to fuel your body right, that’s why it’s important to think about what your going to eat and be prepared for busy days. If you grab something quick from a shop ... be honest ... would it be the healthiest option.
If it is then kudos to you! Personally I know I’d be tempted by the many treats and high in salt foods 🙈. Taking the time to plan and prepare your meals will keep you focused, working towards your goals and less likely to fall off the wagon.
If you need any tips around planning and food prep then comment below or message me, I’m here to help 😊
I’m on a challenge before I depart to Australia at the end of the year. I’m calling it “A ton of fun”. 100 Reps. Every Day. Today it was 3x10 of Assisted Chin Ups, Press Ups, Military Press and 1x10 Bicep Curls. Thanks for the challenge Coach @coachdavidluck

What is it about health and wellness that brings out a need to sabotage in people? Seriously how many times have you responded to someone’s ‘health kick’ announcement with something along the lines of; “On don’t be silly you don’t need to waste your time doing that, you’re perfect how you are”
Closely followed with..... “Come on, have another glass/slice/piece, don’t be BORING”
Where does that response come from?!!!! No seriously I want to know?! Is it because we think that’s what the other person wants to hear to make them feel good about themselves? Is it born from jealously? Or maybe you just haven’t thought about the impact of your remarks at all, that it might actually stop them achieving their goals?
See the thing is you don’t actually know the motivations behind someone deciding to take care of their health. Just because on the outside they may look just fine to you doesn’t mean that actually they don’t feel that great in themselves and want to see if being stronger, healthier, more considered with their wellness might allow them to enjoy life more. Maybe they have family illnesses and they’ve decided they want to future proof themselves against, or maybe they just realise that they’re only getting one shot at life and they want to make sure they take care of the most important thing in it!
Whatever the motivation, it’s theirs to have.
You’d never encourage a pregnant lady to drink, and you’d never feed sugar to a diabetic (but extreme but you get what I’m saying?) If we started taking our own health and wellness as seriously as that then maybe we wouldn’t have an obesity crisis. Maybe it all begins with a change in the dialogue. Next time someone announces they’re getting healthy, ask some questions. Be interested, be excited for them......after all if you haven’t got your health what have you got? ✨
