Some Thoughts On Boredom

Boredom crops up in several different guises when we’re talking about health, fitness and weight loss, and I have some thoughts about it to share with you:

There is likely going to be a degree of boredom at times when you’re following your plan to reach your goals. The day to day boredom of remembering to keep plugging away can be hard at times, although I do sometimes wonder whether boredom is really the right word – perhaps ‘kind of wanting to rebel’ might be better?

You are not ‘being boring’ if you choose to decline something being offered […]

While there are a lot of constants in all programs written for weight loss (or at least there should be, let’s exclude weird faddy diets here!).

Any well designed weight loss focussed program should be based on real food, include some variation of resistance training and give some focus to the impact of lifestyle factors like stress management or sleep quality.

But when we start to look at the specifics, we see that knowing exactly where to focus your attention, how […]

We’re a complicated breed us humans, and overeating is a big issue for so many of us.

The evenings seem to be an especially popular time of day to over eat, and I’ve covered various reasons for that – you can read them here.

There’s (yet) another potential trigger for over eating which we haven’t covered before and that is distraction.

Eating while you’re distracted is massively linked to overeating. Just think about that tub of popcorn you […]

It Shouldn’t Be The Be-All & End-All

I feel this is an important topic to cover, since so many of us are eternally seeking a certain figure, or a certain look.

We feel that once we reach our goal, life will be better because we will finally be happy with the way we look and we’ll just skip off into the sunset in delirious happiness.

But the truth is – the figure/look you want, is never the figure/look you want.

Even once you’ve reached your goal […]

The schools are back and we have a little more time and control over our days again.

It seems like a good time to get back on to the healthy lifestyle wagon, and to prepare for what could be, with a bit of luck, a much more sociable festive season than last year! Sorry. It’s inexcusable to refer to that time of year in September.

So, I’m looking for two ladies who are fed up with being stuck in a cycle of on:off dieting for low reward.

Do you feel like you’re always either ‘on it […]

The biggest enemies to weight loss programs might not be what you think, and they underline the importance of what I think of as ‘lifestyle factors’ in your weight loss plan too.

The biggest enemies are tiredness and hunger.

Think back to when you last found yourself falling off your program. Were you feeling tired and not in the mood to make a healthy meal, or to go and do your workout? Or perhaps you were hungry and didn’t have enough […]

How often have you found yourself going about your day minding your own business and then BAM. You walk past a delicious smelling bakery or you see or hear someone talk about something yummy they’ve just eaten – and now, that’s all you can think about until you’ve eaten it.

What is it with us humans! It’s like life is designed to make us go against our healthy eating aims!

But actually, it kind of is if you think […]

Do You Believe The Basics Are Enough?

I’ve recorded this email as a video as well. You can find it on Facebook or Instagram.

Often, I’ll speak to someone who is frustrated at their lack of progress despite eating every ‘superfood’ known to man, taking some very specific supplements and doing a whole host of very particular exercises.

Usually, it’s a case of forgetting the basics.

While super nutritious foods are of course probably good things to eat, and sometimes specific supplements can be very useful too, for 90% of people, sticking with the basics consistently is enough to get you most – if not […]

I had several replies to the message I sent last week about how to make change stick.

Specifically about point three, which reminded us that we all make our own choices – no one else is making them for us.

I was really pleased that you found that as empowering as I hoped!

You know,

The bottom line is that no one is responsible for what you eat apart from you.

Of course there are days where you’re eating at someone else […]

Weight loss is hard. Making the changes you need to make in order to reach your goals is really difficult, especially when you’re maintaining the changes for the long term.

And while it’s been hard for a lot of reasons while we’ve been stuck at home, it’s still hard now that we’re able to meet up with people again.

So, here are my top five tips for making changes last the distance.

1) Find the goal you […]
