Has that motivated you? Didn't do much for me either to be honest....yet that's often the advice that is given to people that need and want to lose weight.
Have you ever been told that and thought 'Really? Thank you! Seriously because now I know what to do. I've always wondered.'
So how do you start that process if you're looking to make positive changes to your health? Firstly it's ok to be fairly rubbish at it to start with. If you're expecting to become an expert on exercise and nutrition just because that switch has flipped, then probably best to lower your expectations.
Start small and make changes that you can live with if you want this to be a long term relationship with yourself.
Find exercise that makes you feel good about yourself. If it doesn't, try something else.
If you're serious about making changes then think about what you're eating and ask yourself whether this is real food that will help me feel good.
I'm still learning about nutrition and movement and I always will be.
Eat less - Move more - it doesn't sound tempting..
Eat well and enjoy being active...we're getting there 😊
We've spent two weeks growing it and today I've juiced it to make wheatgrass shots for the family.
The good news....Just a tiny 1oz shot of wheatgrass can have a big impact on your nutrition, containing 20 amino acids, all of the B vitamins (including hard to get B17 - reported to help fight and prevent cancer). This tiny super shot also contains vitamins C, E, K, Folic acid, beta carotene and minerals including calcium, zinc, selenium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulphur, sodium and potassium. It is one of the richest sources of chlorophyll on earth - an effective way to improve our vascular system.
The bad news....it's the most vile tasting drink you may ever experience. Really, I can't tell you how bad it tastes. I've tried to hide it within bigger juices but it just ruins a good juice!
I've tried to stomach it in various ways and the best way is just to down it quick on its own from the tiniest shot glass you can find in the house and then run around the kitchen for a while sobbing and flapping your arms about in distress.
If you can get it down, it's a pretty powerful shot nutritionally. Amazing stuff!
