Could 2017 be your fitness focus year?


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and had some well-needed, precious time with family and loved ones. I can’t actually believe I’m talking to you about 2017. 2016 has flown by!

As you all know, fitness is one of my biggest passions and a huge part of my everyday life. Here are a few tips if this year could be your year of fitness focus …

1. You need to be doing it and wanting to do it for you , no-one else
2. Combine nutrition with fitness. This is key to faster and more effective results
3. Please don’t go on a fad diet, spending lots of unnecessary money, plus the weight and body fat you have lost won’t stay off – it just easily creeps back on
4. Keep it simple and not over overwhelming
5. Goals and challenges need to be achievable
6. A fitness partner with the same goals keeps up the motivation during tough spates
7. Focus on body fat more than weight
8. Do exercise you enjoy and it doesn’t have to be gym-based
9. Take before and after pictures in your undergarments and put the before picture on a cupboard in the kitchen that you open regularly for those naughty treats
10. The end goal is a happy, healthy fit body that allows you to be the best you can possibly be at that time in your life

Home fitness is growing bigger and bigger and if you, like me, love your home fitness equipment you may want to try some of these superb fitness pieces of equipment from QVC – the Emu ebike, the Dual Bike exerciser and the Upper Body Training System.

Finally, I’m not a believer in New Year’s resolutions as I think they put too much pressure on us all, and so many fall along the wayside. A nice idea my hubby and I do every year is write three challenges each on New Year’s Eve and put both of them in an envelope of which each keep safe, and secretly without seeing each others until New Year’s Day the following year, we open each other’s and it’s so interesting to see if we reached those challenges. It can be a small challenge or something life-changing.

Have a wonderful 2017 and I hope yours is everything you’ve promised yourself.

Much love and laughter,
