Evening all hope you’re well.
I really needed my last couple of days off work but back to work tomorrow.
Let’s see what the week holds for us all.
Keep seeing on the news that were at peak stage now but its still extremely important that we stay at home unless your a key worker or you cant stay at home for work reasons only.
My girls are absolutely bored obviously when they’ve done their work from school it’s trying to find out things we can do.
We have tried board games doesn’t work causes more arguments than good.
Children don’t understand the seriousness of it all their scared what’s next lots of questions when can they go back to school when can they see there friends again it all feels a bit surreal.
I don’t normally do alot over the winter months on a weekend due to living by the seaside we sort of hibernate at home.
But now the spring has arrived and summers next its really hard because these are the best few months of the year for us we are more active we do more together as a little family.
I really don’t mean to sound selfish with every thing that’s going on im greatful for our health being good at the moment but i cant help but feel a little bit sad we might not get the chance this year to make memories.
I know there is always other years but i know im not the only one who just wants this shitty virus to disappear now not by end of june as government have said but to be honest i don’t know how they can look at the science and predict when it will all end unless its a man made virus but thats another blog for another time.
Ive also tried to stay fit at home im a bit worried about going out for a run at the moment so my exercise bike has been put to good use instead of being coat hanger.
Again ive been trying so hard to stay motivated on my diet but its difficult when all you want to eat is chocolate and rubbish food.
Im doing quite well on my diet plan at the moment ive had another order arrive of more products today from exante.
This week im trying to stick to the four products a day and no 200 cal meal to see how i get on.
Since starting I’ve lost more than… Two and a half stone im really pleased about my progress this is my second month of exante and im happy with the plan it works im happy to push further until i see where im at in a few months time.
Here are 5 tips on how not to binge eat and to exercise during lockdown.
1. Try and defer weither your actually hungry or is it just boredom.
Its trying times i understand that there is only so much netflix you can watch or books you can read try plan each day when you wake up what you’re going to do be productive and don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit the busier the better will take your mind off eating.
2. More water intake
It’s a known fact that sometimes we can be thirsty and not actually hungry not getting enough water intake can cause health issues and weight gain its important you get at least 2 litres a day to help with a normal bodily functionality.
3. Plan meal times
Its a crucial time for us all and food must be consumed appropriately planning meals can be a constructive idea to help with the normal routine of your day it can also be a great family past time over isolation period.
4. Think about your diet.
Again its a crucial time we need our vitamins more than ever at the moment a balanced diet will contribute to your fight against any health issues that come your way.
5. Yes you can still have a treat
Yes you can still have that bag of m&m’s or tube of Pringle’s but what we dont want is for this to be a part of daily life during lockdown with limited access to health centres or fitness centres please be sensible and stay healthy during this time period.
It’s not only important for your health but for your mental well-being.
There’s lots of home exercise programs you can do if you have children you could include them to.
Im not trying to be patronising but please remember its important to look after yourself and your family whilst we are in lockdown.
Love to you all 😊
Stay safe stay indoors.
