So after much speculation and weighing of options; I decided to rather go to the gym than exercise outdoors!

This may seem strange as I was in town, had to endure 5 ‘o clock traffic and my petrol light – very appropriately – switched on, but I managed to keep calm and take the high road!

I am very happy about my decision as just then, I received an email from Z2 – she wasn’t feeling all that happy! Now, usually I would suggest wine and in a way I did but Z2 suggested our tradition – a red cuppachino from Woolworths! She did end up having wine – I didn’t – but I suspect she needed it a tad more than me!

After our catch up I did manage to visit the gym; and I had one of the best sessions ever – it may have been that mixed berry smoothie…or the fantastic chat I had with my friend! I am CERTAIN I needed Z2 more than she needed me! Strange how that works out; right?

I have researched various healthy alternatives to Christmas lunches, dinners, snacks and more.

These are a few options which I thoroughly enjoy and find easy to make as well:

1. Fish Cakes – I know it’s not really ‘Christmas-sy’ but hey it tastes DELICIOUS, it’s easy to make, affordable and Healthy.

2. Pumpkin Pie – Make your own; so you know exactly what goes in there!

3. SALAD – there are so many healthy, delicious and filling salads to add to your main dish.

4. Kebabs – who DOESN’T love a Kebab!?

5. Sweet Potato {The healthier option} – there are hundreds of recipes out there. {Try them out!}

6. Roast Veg – please don’t drench them in oil!

As mentioned previously; I have turned my life around – I came to a point in my life where I had to be Honest with myself! 

I started watching what I put in my mouth as well as how much exercise I do in a week – this seems to be the only {healthy} option out there and I’m sticking to it! Done!

So, this is what I have learned over the Course of {more or less} 4 months:

1. It is {VERY} POSSIBLE To say NO. Especially aimed at Sweet indulgences – the sugar will kill you!

2. It is possible {and VERY EFFECTIVE} to incentivise your Workout Routine. Work out 3 times a week for 2 week=new pair of Shoes. Your wallet and waistline thanks you!!

3. Loosing weight is Difficult. Deal with it!

4. What you put in your mouth; needs to be used effectively within your workout.

5. Working out doesn’t allow you to eat whatever the hell you want. This will ruin you. You will NOT lose any weight. {UPSIDE: You can indulge [after you’ve reached a stable weight] in something..NOT EVERYTHING}

6. Don’t REWARD yourself with food – in the end you are ONLY FOOLING YOURSELF.

7. Lastly – you will Thank YOURSELF for what you have achieved. You will feel better; your skin will look better; your hair, nails – everything will just be better!!

P.S – TOP TIP {BEAUTY}: Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise. You can Thank me later!

Happy Exercising!
