I hope you are well and ready for the weekend. Next Friday I am away so there will be no newsletter.
My tip today is..... 4 Reasons you are not losing weight
You know what to eat.
You know which foods are good for you and will take you closer to your goals.
But are you frustrated and feeling like you are eating healthily but not getting the results you really want.
Here are 4 common
Mindless eating. Stressful snacking. Night time nibbling.
Are you eating healthy meals BUT mindless snacking between meals when you are not hungry?
Do you feel bouts of "micro stress" during the day and find yourself eating for a quick comfort fix?
Even if it's healthy food or snacks you may do this multiple times through the day. All these calories add up and will take you way over your daily calorie amount.
Be aware today of how many times you put something into your mouth between meals when you are not hungry.
Are you stressed? Even if it's just a quick stress moment do you reach for food?
Awareness is key. Once you realise you are doing it you can stop it.
Did you get a good 8 hours of unbroken sleep last night?
If not lack of quality sleep month after month will have a huge impact on your hormone levels, your appetite, your mood and cravings. When you are sleep deprived you eat more and make poor food choices.
Work on your sleep routine this week. Switch off your phone before bed and don’t have it in your bedroom.
Are you too busy to exercise?
Daily exercise is crucial for speeding up your metabolic rate. Burning calories, increasing muscle mass and body composition not forgetting the impact of your mental health.
The home exercise market is growing. With apps and You Tube, more people than ever are working out at home. Online workouts are becoming increasingly popular. It lowers the barrier to exercise and you can do a workout at a time to suit you.
Are you stressed and overwhelmed?
It doesn't matter if you are experiencing BIG HUGE stress or small low-level daily stress. Stress has huge implications for your hormonal health, appetite, mental health, physical health. It chips away at your physical and mental health.
What is stressing you?
Make a list of EVERYTHING that causes you stress.
Can you take small steps every day on combating stress?
Breathing, exercising, meditation.
Do you need to change things?
Your daily routine? Your goals?
Do you need a break?
Let me know if any of this helps in any way 😁
As usual would love your thoughts. 😀
Have a good weekend.
