Motivation

Motivation. That’s a tough one isn’t it? You start the new year with good intentions and it’s easy because it’s new and it’s exciting and everyone else is doing it, but what happens to your motivation when February begins and it becomes a bit more mundane and the reality of everything kicks in and you start to feel the pressures of everyday life creeping back in and the first thing you want to quit is your healthy eating and exercising because you can’t quit work or being a parent, spouse or any of the other daily commitments you have. Well on Friday 29th January I had an interview with Jack Miles at BBC Radio Gloucestershire to talk about motivation. How to keep it, and what is the not so secret way to keep motivated!

Take a listen and then I will explain further! It was my first ever radio interview and with any interview you always come out kicking yourself wishing you said this, that and the other! Click on the link below and head to 1:14:30 to listen.

Free Nutrition Plan for 3 People!

Healthy Life wooden sign with a beach on background

To further the offering of my blog I have recently studied a Nutrition in Fitness course so that I can start providing 12 week nutrition plans to those that need that extra helping hand to get them started on their healthy living journey. To start this off I am looking for 3 lovely individuals who want to help me build my portfolio to go alongside my own weight loss success of losing 2.5 stone over the course of 12 months! So I am offering the opportunity for 3 people to receive this nutrition plan free of charge and all I ask in return is that you send me your progress photographs and measurements at the beginning, during and at the end of the 12 weeks and that you are happy for me to use these images and stats on my website, social media sites and within my portfolio. Easy peasy!

As part of the 12 week plan I will provide a list of recipes, meal plans, foods you should be eating or eliminating, important information about nutrition and eating a healthy diet as well as weekly updates (or more frequently if required) to provide support via email, facebook messenger and I would also recommend using the My Fitness Pal app and I will monitor your daily intake and advise on where you are doing well and where you can improve.

If you would be interested in this please email me at roo@rooderennes.com with the following information.

  • Current weight
  • Current measurement of thigh, hips, waist, chest and arms
  • Goal weight and goal measurements
  • What diets / weight loss techniques have you tried previously?
  • What did you like about it?
  • What didn’t you like, or what made you stop?
  • Dietary requirements (please note that if you have any serious dietary issues it is best to consult your GP prior to making any major changes to your diet)
  • Are you currently training / working out?
  • If yes, please supply further details; what training are you doing, how often and how long do you work out for?
  • Please send 3 photos of yourself in tight fitting clothing (front view, side view and back view)

The closing date for applications is 28th February 2015. I will contact the successful individuals by 9th March. All other applicants will be offered a 10% discount off the nutrition plan fee once it is fully launched later this year as my way to say thank you for showing interest 🙂

I look forward to hearing from you!

Love Roo xx

How to Keep Active At Work

Woo hoo! over 53000 steps in one weekend, what can you do?!

Woo hoo! over 53000 steps in one weekend, what can you do?!

I had the idea to write this post about a week ago because I see and hear so many people using the fact that they work in an office or work long hours as an excuse for putting on weight or struggling to lose it. This absolutely DOES NOT have to be the case. And as if to prove my point my work has decided to do a health and fitness awareness week to help all it’s staff to realise the importance of staying healthy at work. As part of this awareness week my employers are running a pedometer challenge where 10 teams of 5 people have to walk a total of 2500 miles over the course of a week. Thankfully all of my team members are just as fitness crazy as I am so we decided to put ourselves forward for this challenge and there was a prize for the team that walked the furthest – challenge accepted! My lovely colleagues nominated me as their team leader and we will be taking part in the pedometer challenge and I felt this tied in nicely with the post I was planning to write!
