Been a while since I talked about the C word 🦠 I really struggled to find my way but I feel so much better now! Thought I’d share some tips that really helped me 🤗
1️⃣ As you’re in the house 24/7 it can be tempting to snack more. Everytime I walked in the kitchen I just grabbed something, not cause I was hungry but.. well donno 🤣🤷🏽♀️ I do groceries once per 1,5 week now. If you don’t buy snacks, can’t eat it right? 1,5 week might sound long but I have a new found love for frozen veggies. I use them to make all kinds of soup. I make big pans, so I’m always prepared! (Check my food highlight for my favo pumpkin recipe 😋) I also keep my bread in the freezer and I toast it in the oven with some grated light cheese to eat with my soup.. so yummie!!
2️⃣ Structure and discipline!! I started a 30 days challenge because I needed something to hold on to. I know what to do every day and eventhough I sometimes don’t feel like it, I stick to the plan! Afterwards I feel extra good about myself which motivates me the rest of the day 🤗
3️⃣ Think outside the box! I noticed I got so frustrated from home workouts. It reminded me of how much I wanted to hit the gym. I started with yoga and I absolutely love it! 🤸🏽♀️ I go for long walks with the doggies and do some daily exercises. I was afraid my body would change and I would loose strength but for now I feel great and don’t really notice any difference 😅
4️⃣ Count your blessings ✨ This is easy for me cause my situation is pretty good. But I do take the time to realise how lucky I am. To have a nice house, amazing BF, 4 furry kiddo’s and a job I love 🥰 But even a few minutes in the sun can make me happy, being able to help my neighbour with groceries, going for a walk to see my new friends 🦘 My brother and dad live in spain and are going trough such a tough time 😓 Still having some freedom is priceless!
5️⃣ Dress up, do your hair and make up 💁🏽♀️ Ok maybe not everyday 🙊 But I always feel great when I dress up a bit.
