I love music, but sometimes it’s the same sorta thing from time to time. That’s when I started on to podcasts! They are good while walking or running, even listening in the car. You can learn so much and it keeps your mind going! At the moment my favourite podcast is healthification! It’s a short podcast with health and fitness tips! So go look it up and listen to it next time you work out! If you already listen to podcasts let me know what good ones you have on your lists?
This is what it should feel like! It’s not a chore or something you have to do, you should feel like you want to do it! This makes heading to your fat loss goal that bit easier! If you don’t feel like these feelings when you do workout your choosing the wrong workout! Do something that you love doing a sport, running, walking, bike riding, golf! And if you are really wanting to loose weight and feel great you will learn how to love and crave the burn, the sweat, cause you know that each time you do your that bit closer to your goal!!

That is drink up green tea of course! ha
I started drinking green tea about 6 months ago! I wasnt a fan of any tea or coffee and didnt like the taste of green tea. But i researched the benefits and I said to myself ‘Get over it!’. Firstly I started drinking my tea with added lemon juice almost to the point you couldnt taste the tea! Then I slowly took more and more of the lemon juice out until it was just tea, and now I love it. I have one with my lunch and I have another with my dinner. Here are some cool facts to try and persuade you to do the same as me!
Green tea is one of the healthiest drinks in the world! There are compounds in green tea that can improve your brain function to a point where it can make you smarter. The antioxidants in green tea may lower your risks of various tyoes of cancer such as breast, prostate and colorectal cancer. Green tea can boost metabolic rate in the short term, therefore an aid for weightloss. All these facts and more are found at this website: http://authoritynutrition.com/top-10-evidence-based-health-benefits-of-green-tea/

I love morning smoothies! But I don’t do it every morning, it’s more of a specialty. The only real time I make a smoothie is when my eyes are too big for my stomach in the supermarket and I buy too much fruit and veg, it’s been a couple of weeks and I haven’t gotten through them all and they are starting to look a little dodgy! I’m pretty fussy with my fruit and veg too, once they look a little funny or the banana is a little brown I won’t eat it. So what do I do, I blend it and next thing you know I’m drinking a yummy smoothie!
Do you have a favourite smoothie recipe? Let me know!
