Are you fighting fit or still trying to fight the flab?

Trying to lose those extra 'festive' pounds, gained over the Christmas period can often lead to frustration, especially if you are the kind of person who would prefer to hibernate in Winter.  So, let's look at the facts. If you are finding it hard to lose weight, then consider the following:-


No foods are bad. A little bit of what you fancy does you good, so long as you eat it in moderation. Losing weight just takes a little motivation and common sense. Eating 3 balanced meals a day and exercising regularly, is the key to effective weight loss. Drinking plenty of water is also good for fat utilization.

Exercise is very important. It helps balance your metabolism. The Government recommends that to maintain good health adults need to exercise for at least 30 minutes x 5 days a week. (Children = 1 hour x 7 days a week). Exercise does not have to be boring or a chore. If you can find something that you really enjoy doing, then JUST DO IT , as often as you like - whether it be swimming, walking, running, playing with the kids, skipping, dancing, joining a gym or attending an aerobics class. Have fun and make time for yourself. Your life is just as important as everyone else's and it is so easy to continue making the excuse that you just don't have the time. If you consider how much time you spend watching television or just procrastinating - then think about how you might use the time more effectively to do something good for yourself.  Engage a buddy to help motivate and support you. 

'Strictly come Dancing' seems to have started a new craze, as dance schools and community centres, offering salsa classes, have really started to take off in the last couple of years. Visit if you require any information about classes.  They offer a wide range of classes to suit all ages from beginners to intermediates.

Finally, be kind to yourself.  Take it one step at a time, and don't beat yourself up if you have started a healthy eating regimen and have gone off track a little.  Just bring yourself back and stay focussed on your fitness goals.  Good luck!
