— The Tracey Fragments (via thebeautifuldamned)
Set your alarm for 6am. Don’t groan when it goes off and pull the covers over your head, get up and start your day. Put on a baggy top and running shorts. Go downstairs and pour yourself a nice big glass of ice water. Cut up some fruit and mix it in with yogurt. Add some granola. Now go outside. Stretch for 10 minutes. Skip for 5 minutes. Jog for 10 minutes. Run for 10 minutes. Walk back. Lay out a towel on the ground and lie down on it. Do 50 crunches. Yes, they hurt, but they are 100% worth it. When you’re done, get in the shower. Use a nice smelling shampoo and matching conditioner. Shave your legs and wash your body. Exfoliate your face. Get out of the shower and let your hair air dry. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? If you do, good for you. Do this every day and you will continue to love yourself. If you don’t like what you see, do this every day and pretty soon you will. Being lazy might feel good at the time, but being active feels better in the long run. How badly do you want it?

- Soy Latte.
- Avo, Tomato, Rocket, Egg and Feta on Turkish Toast.
- Soy Piccalo.
- Four choc chip cookies.
- Creamy Spinach Pasta.
- Another cookie.
So the cookies I could have done without. But I baked them yesterday and they are super tasty! This one is a golden rule; Never deny yourself something your really want. Because you’ll more than likely just slip up with something even worse later. Yes I had four cookies today, but considering I was running around on my feet all day from 7am til 4pm, I think I deserve a little treat.
This is another thing people need to look at when they are assessing their exercise. What is your general day to day like? I don’t do any cardio exercise, because in my job I am literally on my feet, running around for ten hours a day. (I should invest in a pedometer to see how many steps a day I do..) I do yoga, palates and aerobics for toning and muscle strength. However if your day to day is more sitting or standing around than a jog every day shouldn’t go amiss.
