How To Get In Shape & Stay In Shape For Good.
Progress not Perfection
Aim for progress not perfection. Eat nutritionally dense foods that fuel your body and workout a few times a week. Use a tape measure and take photos to check your progress every 4 to 6 weeks. Avoid using the scales as they don't give an accurate measure of progress.
Set SMART Goals
Set specific goals. For example I will aim to walk for 30 minutes daily and tick each day off on a calendar once you've achieved it.
Food and Fitness Journal
Record what you eat and which workout you do on a daily basis. Look back over the previous week and see where improvements can be made for the week ahead.
Get Enough Sleep
Getting enough sleep can help with weight loss goals/. Lack of sleep has been found to cause an increase in appetite and can lead to eating more, which can lead to weight gain.

Eat More Protein
Increase your protein intake. Eating enough protein will help to keep you fuller for longer so you're less likely to snack, protein also helps to build muscle and burn calories as it takes the body longer to break it down.
Practise Portion Control
Instead of your usual plate, aim to opt for a smaller size plate and fill it with fiber rich foods and protein.
Preparation is Key
Keep your workout gear and equipment on standby and try to work out at the same time each day to help form a long term habit.
