My Top 11 Healthy Lifestyle Commandments ...

Do you sometimes get stuck in a rut?

When in doubt, follow the 10 11 commandments of a healthy lifestyle ...

This is your lifestyle .. not just an 8 week or 12 week challenge .. you are here for the long haul so don't over complicate it

Be consistent .. Never go more than 3 days without some form of activity.  Unless of course your are injured or so unwell you have been advised to take time off!

Plan and organise your week .. plan your menu in advance and make sure you have your healthy snacks on hand.  Schedule in your exercise and get it done!

Challenge yourself .. try something new, push that little bit harder, faster, further .. set a new goal!

Get yourself a support network .. find yourself like minded friends who will motivate, encourage and applaud you and your achievements.

Eat whole fresh, unprocessed foods as much as possible .. avoid processed foods, junk foods, fast foods .. they will only slow you down and make you feel terrible

Don't cut out food groups .. eat a variety of fresh, whole foods.  They all have amazing benefits for keeping your body and immune system healthy.

Don't deprive yourself .. allow yourself a treat .. not a treat day, not a weekend .. a little treat that you really enjoy!

Always eat breakfast .. it will kick start your body for the day and gives you energy to keep moving with everything you have to do!

Don't skip meals .. it leads to overeating later in the day

Allow yourself to be successful! No negative thoughts allowed!

Go forth and conquer your health and fitness lifestyle goals!

All of those are great. The one that strikes a chord most with me is not skipping meals. I used to do it all the time and when I was doing it I was at my heaviest. I never skip meals now and my weight is so much easier to maintain.

Oh love it! They're all so relevant and - although I know better - I continue to be tempted by the quick fix and magic elixir!
