be thankful - wise words indeed. Step away from the faked instagram images and rejoice in what you have.
Yes to getting out of my comfort zone. I have already signed up for a 5k, 10k and mud run later this year!
Keep yourself positive and you will feel more like working out. It's not all about physical health, if you get low and depressed you won't feel like exercising so keep it all fun.
Yes it's so true that we exercise so much better when we're happy. That's a complete turnaround for me! I will be concentrating on keeping positive and hopefully should feel more like regular exercise this year.
Funny, I've never thought of being grateful for my body before but you're quite right, we are very lucky to have strong healthy bodies and we should be grateful.
it's new year's eve - a small tipple or two is traditional but never mind the calories, getting battered isn't happening, especially not with small kids who will be awake at 6am tomorrow. So a limit has to be done and I'll still have a good time.
I've been reading a book by a journalist who was paralysed in a fall from a horse - you probably know the one. She doesn't lecture but she says that it does annoy her when people with functioning bodies don't look after them. And she's quite right.
CAn we really not make vitamin D in this country between October and April? What about on a sunny autumn or winter day when you're out walking? Does that still not count?
I probably do about 120 minutes of 'proper' exercise a week( 4 x 30 runs/weights) so this has me a little worried now as do I need to do more to start reaping benefits? Or does other activities like vacuuming, walking count too?
If you're that worried about over-indulging do what we do and eat out for Xmas day. That way you can only eat what you're given and it's not huge portions.
yes, the abs definitely matter to support the back - trouble is if the abs are weak it can be tricky to strengthen them without causing back problems. Patience needed to build it all up.
It's really hard to get yourself to exercise if you feel low so the best advice I could give is to workout as soon as you can in the day, don't think about it, then keep on doing it and it will become a habit you start to miss.
Surely there's more calories in all the chocolates and cake that people eat over Christmas than in a healthy Christmas dinner? What's the concern over a meal with poultry and veg?
the ultra-central Covent Garden one isn't actually that pricey, so it is a shopping then spa day for me - love that bit of London at Christmas!
I LOVE Christmas Dinner (especially as someone else cooks it) but my weight seems stable because, guess what, I don't eat like that every day. Just go easy on the Christmas treats and all will be well.
Best low calorie drink is always gin and tonic plus a squeeze of lime. You just can't beat it, whatever time of year it is.
Made this for Christmas, now having it with leftover meat. Truly delicious, and feels like something healthy alongside all the chocolate.
Does anyone really want to swap their Bailey's for sherry? For me, it's a festive treat that i don't want to consider the calories of.
Well I will definitely be needing to cut back on the sugar in the new year so this could be a good treat for me to help get back to healthy eating,
I agree with Simon - one meal a year when you can forget about calories and healthy eating isn't a problem. Don't worry, hope everyone enjoyed their christmas dinner!
a bit late to worry about this on Boxing Day....but I reckon a delicious, high vegetable, high flavour roast dinner once a year is worth a few extra workouts!
useful stuff - after a year of work to lose the beer belly I really don't want to put it back on. Bottled it is!
who knew? Even my limited cooking skills managed this, it is seriously more-ish and good for you too. Result!
