Small Changes Add Up

I’m not sure what happened, maybe I was just sick of feeling lethargic and a bit soft but yesterday I started making changes…

Nothing big or scary, nothing that took too much thought or any tracking but I did some things that were slightly different to recent days and already I feel better.

What did I do?

I DRANK MORE WATER – instead of my favourite guilt pleasure, diet fizzy pop, I ditched it for water instead.

I CONTROLLED MY PORTIONS – I was much more sensible about portion control and instead of thinking “I’m starving, I’ll fill my plate”, served up a smaller meal and it was definitely enough.

I BY-PASSED THE SNACK – I had a sandwich at lunch time but I didn’t get the usual extras I might have previously – no crisps, no afters. Just a sandwich and water.

I FILLED UP ON FRUIT – Oh my word, I forgot how satisfying and tasty a bowl of fruit is! I cut up some of my favourites – apple, banana, strawberries, melon, blueberries and grapes into a dessert bowl to trough on in the evening.

I WORKED ON MY BUSINESS – After Isla went to bed I sat and worked ON my business, looking at where I am, where I want to be and what I need to do. I would usually plonk my butt on the sofa and watch rubbish on TV or some instagram stories (Yey for Mrs Hinch).

These things all happened without me trying hard, feeling like it was a chore or like I was missing out.

I actually feel like I had a really awesome day!

Today I am going to continue with more of the same, keeping the above things going and making better choices, small changes to the things I normally do.

What choices will you make today that are good for you?

I’m Holly, a fitness instructor, personal trainer, massage therapist, assessor, tutor, and pre and post natal exercise specialist. Born and raised in rural Northumberland I am passionate about the outdoors, health, fitness, and general wellness. I believe it is important to look after body through exercise and nutrition, and finding “me-time” to look after your own physical and emotional well-being. Along side providing health and fitness advice, I also offer coaching and lifestyle advice; helping clients work through their stresses and reducing daily pressures through coping mechanisms which are easy to access and perform. As I come to add content to this blog, you will get to know me through everything from the food I eat, the exercise I do (and don’t do), the books I read, how I like to spend my free time (yes, free time!), and probably a lot more along the way. I’ll be sharing more information shortly but for now, I wish you a very enjoyable day!
