I always find these kinds of posts difficult to write, so much fills my head but I feel some force which prevents me from writing or speaking about it. I didn't know how to, for many reasons, mostly being how it would be perceieved as I'm not great for explaining my feelings clearly. Basically everything Zoe has said in her latest post is how I'm feeling, down to a T. I urge you to read it, it's an honest write up of the industry right now.
Today's foodie post is a quick one. You may or may not know that I have a huge interest in nutrition and the connection to health and beautiful skin. However for the moment it's purely a passion and not a career. Now I'm not a chef but I do like to dabble in the kitchen, I like things to visually look pleasing on the plate but there also has to be reasoning for why I've chosen those items. Since not eating meat over 2.5 years ago I've have to monitor what I eat more so than I did before, I need to make sure I get enough protein in my diet and get the correct carbs in. Carbs are vital to a healthy mind as well as functionality of the body, don't cut these out just replace for better ones. Read my post on The Myth About Carbs here.
We're all familiar with the concept of regular run-of-the-mill gyms, you turn up, often wait for machines, do the same routine (unless you're an experienced) and expect big changes. Now is the perfect time to start getting healthier and in shape for the impending bikini season. Traditional gyms are only as good as your determination so if you need some additional motivation and guidance try Speedflex.
The start of a new year inspires many to burn the many calories gained over the festive period, and encourages the usually less active, to get fit. The promise of Summer around the corner gives us that much needed push to start "mission beach bod" early, and then, come February, we disappear. Never to see the gym again, or not until the week before our holiday anyway.
Packed supermarkets, manic malls, tardy transport, it's Christmas. What's more is all the stress of meeting deadlines, completing paperwork, and generally getting shit done all before the holidays, ultimately leaves the immune system flagging red. It's telling you to slow down, but how can you when you still have the in-laws gifts to get and the 5 Christmas nights out you excitedly agreed to back in October. All this "Joy" leaves us prone to the dirty December bug, the party pooping tummy virus and the feeling of tiny fairies climbing the throat with ice picks. Ouch!
