Reset. Go Again.

Another 3 weeks of lockdown in Ireland. The Easter weekend was tough, the May weekend will be equally though and the time in between…well that’s going to be just great. Whatever you’ve done over the weekend or in the lockdown so far, its time to reset and go again.

Maybe you have already started on all of those initial lock down plans. Maybe you started and stopped. Maybe you had best intensions but never got there. It doesn’t matter, you’ve got another 3 weeks (at least), to kick on.

Success on your fitness journey is a result of making the small efforts count, consistently over and over again. You can’t get to where you want to on a lockdown day, but you can take a step in the right direction.

Hungry or Bored?

It’s quarantine time! or is it SNACK time!

We’re in for some boring days during this lockdown, and a fun thing to figure out is whether you’re hungry or bored… Snacking because of boredom is extremely common with all of us and with being in a lockdown this is certain to become more challenging. It’s important to remember to eat when you’re hungry and not because the nothing more exciting going on. Many of us will also have switched to working from home where the cupboards are full with the goods and with no colleagues to judge you, you could easily and happily snack away all day. Fun for a day or two but snacking coupled with an overall reduction in energy expenditure could play havoc with any fitness goals that you’ve set previously.

Some things which help:

  • Plan (and make) your meals for the day in advance
  • Plan your meal times for the day
  • Drink more water
  • Keep snacks out of sight during the day
  • Keep your mind active
  • Don’t be too harsh on yourself when you go off plan, this is a mad time!
