Now that summer is coming I have decided to make a few healthy changes to my life to generally improve my well being, lose weight and to set a good example for Jake. This is what I’ve decided to do:
1) Join the gym – Its a big step for us that we now feel as a family we have the time for both Jamie and I to go out at separate times and use the gym enough the justify the membership costs. For us this means we both aim to go at least three times a week. We’ve been going three weeks and so far I think I’m managing it. I’m determined to lose a bit of weight and I know that exercise will be the key to this for me.
2) Eat less crisps and chocolate – This ties in with the losing weight goal, but the main reason I came to this conclusion was to set a good example for Jake. We always eat lunch as a family and was really starting to feel like a big hypocrite serving Jamie and I something with a packet of crisps and Jake something with a piece of fruit. So we’ve all switched to fruit. It can only be a good thing!
3) Eat more fruit and veg – For the exact same reasons as above!
These are only small simple changes but I think they really could play a large part in improving my fitness, health and wellbeing as long as I can stick with it for the long term. Hopefully I’ll lose a bit of weight soon and that will give me the reassurance and motivation to carry on!
