7 Thing You Can Do To Be Healthy This May



  • Swap coffee for Green tea in the morning


  1. Green tea is considered one of the healthiest drinks on the planet. It contains 1/3 the amount of caffeine than coffee, giving you a buzz without completely eliminating caffeine from your day.
  2. It is filled with antioxidants called polyphenols which rid your body of harmful free radicals, thus preventing disease.
  3. Fat burner? YES. Green tea is in nearly all fat burners and for a reason. Green tea has been proven to increase metabolism and has the ability to help you decrease body fat.
  4. Catechins help prevent infections and diseases and are known to kill influenza, and have anti-cancer properties!

  • Drink more water

It seems like such a simple task, however it would shock you to realise that many people don’t drink nearly enough water a day. Try to get around 2 litres of water a day.

Tip: Add some lemon and lime into your water for some extra flava

  • Yoga your way to happiness

The wonderful thing about yoga is you can use it before a workout or run as a means of stretching and you feel             more energetic afterwards, and you can do yoga on rest days to move your body. Stretching is so important for              your muscles to grow and I can’t recommend trying a yoga class enough. Go on. 1 class. Just try it, please.

  • Moisturize after a shower

      It is time to be your number one fan and love yourself from the inside, out. The reason I have added this one in           here is because I neglected my skin for so long and focussed on my food, gym and work. Your skin faces the                  elements every day and doesn’t get enough attention. Nothing relaxes me more than lighting some candles and a        good face moisturizer (what have I become). Side note- Use UV-A and UV-B protection even on cloudy day and            keep those wrinkles away…..

  • Walk once a day

I have made it my goal to try and reach 10,000 steps a day. Take some headphones or meet a friend and walk. It’s       low intensity cardio that makes all the difference to your weight loss journey.

       Tip: Wearing a Fitbit or other step tracker app is a great way of keeping you motivated and focused on what                     you want to achieve.


  • Write a list of 5 things you hope to achieve by 2017

Once you do that, answer this.. How many of them have you began to achieve? It is nearly may and making a               plan is the first step to success. I find writing things down makes the plan more concrete and allows me to                     process what I need to do about it. Grab a pen and get writing.

        Tip: Treat yourself to a pretty notebook that you want to bring around – Pennys have cute ones for 2 euro (:

  • Challenge your body once a week

Breaking up your normal routine is a wonderful way to blast fat and keep you on your fit toes. I like to throw some      curve balls into my week such as hill sprints, box jumps and many spin classes that hurtttttt. Do something that           makes you feel unstoppable, go for a hike and embrace nature, even go book a kayak with a friend and make a day       of it. Get out of your comfort zone. Life is simply too short to put things off for another time.

action, exercise, figure

Feel Healthy from the inside out


Hey guys, so it has been a while since my last blog. Finals are taking over and the gym is replacing blogging so I have decided to take some time to write an important blog. I usually focus on food ideas and gym exercises but I thought I’d change it up a bit as I have been thinking about this for a while now. Little steps should be taken weekly for you to just have much needed ‘’me time’’. Considering it’s April already, it seems we spend too much time in the fast lane and need to take a moment to look at our overall picture of health. Although I love training and would usually go 6-7 times a week for the past two years, I paid the price and was getting sickness after sickness, living off antibiotics. What people don’t tell you is that yes-lack of exercise is bad for your health, but over exercising puts too much stress on the body, increases cortisol and adrenaline levels and as a result, weakens your immune system. Unfortunately, excessive training causes white blood cells (leukocytes) to sky rocket and the only way to help this is to relax, recharge the batteries and rest. Fitness and healthy lifestyles terms are definitely becoming increasingly popular due to the unlimited social media accounts and celebs who portray a sick free, perfect life with no bumps in the way.. but this is not realistic.  I have set up this blog to promote exercise and nutrition for people to be h e a l t h y.. Not as a means to simply lose weight or have a strict diet. My advice is to simply listen to your body and live life in moderation- that means gym and socializing too. I have now decided that training 4-5 times a week is plenty for me and if I feel tired, I’ll skip the gym- that’s what humans do. The truth is, my body actually looks better now that I am putting it under less stress, and over training can in fact be detrimental to your physique goals.

Be kind to yourself and a few tips that myself and my friends have been following ourselves are; using a facemask once a week, nourishing your skin with pretty damn good moisturizer, lighting candles to relax (pennies have some beauties) and watch a movie, take a yoga class or body balance by LesMilles, drink green tea every day, Have a spa day, purchase probiotics and last but not least, spend time around people who support you, make you laugh and whose company you enjoy the most
