My 5 new rules to a healthier life

Monday, 8 October 2018

Okay, they're more 'routines' than rules, but I assume you can catch my drift. 

Happy Monday loves, I hope today isn't too hard. I've obtained a teenager for the week of which I need to feed and keep alive. Wish me luck. Just kidding, he's actually making dinner tonight for us, sooo I'm mean top baby sitter here? 

I was thinking over the weekend about having some routines to follow each day / week, It's nice to have some sort of goals to hit. As it's the 1st of October, what better time to try and better myself! 

So here we go! 

Drink 4 bottles of water a day 
I have a 500ml water bottle, so that's 2 litres a least a day which should be pretty easy because I do drink quite a lot. Since being home sick I have been slacking so I want to make sure everyday I have four bottles, I can easily drink three at work so that just leaves one when I get home. 

Track my fitness progress
I'm not on some kind of hard core fitness routine / journey, I have done that before, but I find that I put too much pressure on myself, and always end up failing. So I am just making the effort to eat healthy, nutritionally and listen to my body. 

I'm thinking of the future of my body, I don't want to wade in to those fad diets, those 'popular' body types, I just want to make sure my body is healthy and fit to get me through life! Which means keeping an eye on what my body is doing / changing. 

I am dairy intolerant and recently had a bit of a scare, I used to eat dairy and just hope for the best I cannot do that anymore. So I'm also kind of learning a new diet at the same time.  

Walk for 30 minuets everyday 
As I said above, I want to lead a healthy lifestyle. I know currently my body is weak, I do not feel strong, I do not feel healthy but I know that I'm getting there. I'm thinking a head to when I have a child, like right now, I'm sure I would not make it through a pregnancy so every little helps right? 

I want to make sure I walk for 30 minuets everyday, just some light exercise but making sure I get moving everyday. Either I'll go on a walk at lunch time or walk Tilly when I get home, I just want to make sure I'm always on the go! 

Workout twice a week 
I said I want to start walking everyday, but I also want to start working out. It's something I've always enjoyed and I want to get right back in to it! It's a lot harder now I don't have my own home, I have to lunge around the lounge in front of everyone, but I will make it work. 

I want to feel strong again, so you just wait til you see my quads poppin' on Instagram! 

Do what I love everyday
This is more for my mental fitness. I work in an office, it isn't the most enjoyable, you're dealing with customers who of course, know nothing are always right! It's silly but since starting back on my blog last week I always feel a huge relief, and purpose again. I look forward to coming home not just to lie in bed, but to share my thoughts, connect with all the lovely ladies and gents on Twitter. 

I kind of lost sight on myself over the last year or so, I gave up all my hobbies, and didn't have much direction but no more, I feel refreshed and happy finally! 

Thank you for reading, now let's see if I can manage to practice all the above.
