Since starting out on my mission, I have gathered a lot of information about running, exercise, healthy eating and numerous other bits and bobs. However, the problem is, putting them all into practice simultaneously is difficult! This post is as much for me as anyone reading. Here I will try to bring together everything which I have learned….

Make Your Workout Work For You
Don’t waste time in the gym, make every second count! An effective warmup can make or break your workout. How you run can make your workout more efficient and let you get the distance or time which you are looking for. Sports drinks and water both have their benefits when working out, choose the best for you. Running in the heat of summer isn’t great, so find a way to keep up your programme without too much pain!

Keep Your Chin Up
Remember why you want to succeed, and stick to it. Also realise that exercise helps you mentally! For those times that it seems that little bit too far, just find something which helps you out of the rut. Find the motivation to get up and out and exercise! Once you have that motivation, keep your eye on the prize and use those around you as even more stimulus to succeed. Find your own personal hero as a guide to success. Beat your own laziness, as it is easily found within all of us.
Changing the way you eat involves lots of steps, and also lots of slips. Find a way to make those changes work for you. Choose a plan and stick to it, whether it is paleo or just healthy eating, faddy diets do not work, so choose something sustainable!
