August! Changing Goals.

Its here already, over half way through 2014.  I can’t believe it!  Its so easy to make those plans to get fit and attain goals but life and INJURIES can get in the way.  But don’t look back, look forward and make smaller steps to achieve your goals.  Feeling fat and then eating lots of cake …

Health is a very broad subject and means many different things to different people.  What about you?  Is health about taking each day and making it through?  Accomplishing basic daily chores?  Having a good day without aches and pains.  Managing medication and activities?  Health may mean a higher level of fitness and achieving new goals.

Health is always going to be linked to our genes and what we have inherited and also by the things we do and the environment we live in.

What can you do?


Our bodies can survive to an extent even if we don’ feed it well or drink enough.  Yet the outcome of this will be evident in our health.  I see many people complain one day of tiredness and then the next day post a picture on the internet of the takeaways and alcohol they are drinking, regularly!  We may be dehydrated.  We may be malnourished.  We have all heard the saying, ‘we are what we eat’.  What do you eat and what does it produce in you?  Eating a diet high in sugar or processed food will not give us good results, or good health.  Yet our bodies will take away whatever we put in and use it to keep us alive.  This may mean though that if you have a health issue or an injury you will not get well if you don’t put the right food into your body as quickly as someone who is feeding themselves right!  A good idea is to make a food diary.  No time?  Take pictures!  Yes, every time you eat take a picture of it. After a week see what you are eating.   I recently spent a few days away with a friend and realised that I needed to eat much more regularly that they did which is good but I also noted how much more I was eating and perhaps needed to keep an account of my calories and make better choices.


Again a very broad subject.  Fitness to some maybe to manage to lift themselves out of a chair.  To others it maybe to run a marathon or lift heavy weights.  What is important is setting goals and having a range of activities that will always push you to achieve more and have a varied workout.  This may mean carrying the shopping and walking home instead of catching the bus.  Or try to lift yourself out of a chair without resting your hands on the chair or on your legs so your entire body weight is lifted by your legs.  It could be hills sprints instead of running on a flat course that you have ran many times before.  Or trying to run outside instead of on a treadmill.  Maybe trying a new type of fitness class that you have never tried before and see how your body adapts.

We have a wealth of information available on the internet all we have to do is look for it and we will find recipes and exercise ideas to move us forward.

Keep fit and keep healthy!

See you soon.
