I’m determined to get on track with my health and well-being because I have been so lackadaisical towards it recently. However with the colder weather setting in now it wont be easy with my chronic illness but, if I can start getting on track now it will set me up ready for the new year.
So, if you’ve been reading my Wellness Wednesday posts you guys will know that I am on several medications and treatments to help with my mobility and other conditions. I got a new diet plan, physio regime etc. Now that was all well and good for the first month, but the I got lazy and believe me, I am suffering for it now.
I could definitely tell a difference in my health, even if it was slight when I was keeping on top of everything. So the plan is to spend the next 2+ months getting into a routine and on top of everything so that I can come into the New Year feeling a bit more ‘energised’.With that being said, here is my health to-do list:
- 30 minutes of physio stretched twice a day (apart from the 1 day a week I go to physiotherapy).
- 45 minutes swimming 2-3 per week.
- 45 minutes gym exercises 2-3 per week.
- No caffeine.
- Less sugar and fatty/junk food.
- More fruit & vegetables.
- More Iron and Vitamin C rich foods.
- 3 controlled portion meals per day.
- MORE WATER DAILY!
- Get into a sleeping routine.
- Start to get to a healthier weight / BMI.
- Keep myself motivated and on target.
So there you have it, I know it seems quite intense but my plan is not to jump in all at once for I feel that’s where a lot of people go wrong when it comes to dieting etc. No, my plan is to try at stick to it at least 75% of the time.This giving me the kick start I need for the New Year as well as letting me break into the new routine easily and still allowing room for error, which I know there will be some of.
I’m hoping that this is going to work like more of a domino effect. For example, if my sleeping pattern sorts it self out it means I am up early enough to make a decent breakfast and leave to go to the gym or swimming before work, setting me up for the day. Then by time it gets to night time I will be tired and able to sleep early and easily enough ready again for the following day.
I’m thinking of keeping a written journal to keep me motivated, have my routines in there as well as daily targets etc. What do you guys think? Any suggestions. I have seen a lot of people talking about these bullet journals, would that be a good way to go about this? Let me know in the comments.
