Stuck in a rut? Want to unf*%k yourself?

Are you stuck in a rut? We all get stuck from time to time and it’s so hard to get out of it. I got stuck before Xmas with eating shite, not training and generally just not giving a shit.


But this did backfire on me as every time I looked in the mirror I felt worse and worse about myself because I wasn’t in the shape I used to be in! 

Fitness doesn’t have to be hard. Genuinely you might say “Ah fuck off Aaron, easy for you to say”

But genuinely it’s only as hard as you make it out to be in your head. 

nobody is asking you to step on stage or aim for the Olympics.

just try to be a better, more healthier version of you. As your health is the one thing you cannot get back once you lose it.

“You only live once” well then why not live it to the fullest, live as long as you possibly can by leading a healthier life.

Why not live to 80, 90 years of age??… why isn’t this a possibility? with the health craze growing daily in Ireland there should be no excuse for you to not lead a better lifestyle. 

Don’t know where to start?? 

Here are 4 easy steps you can implement this week to get yourself un stuck! 

 
1: Lemon water as soon as you get up – 
I think everybody should start their day with some lemon and hot water because there are some incredible benefits to doing this such as : Aids in Weight Loss(Eh yes please!), Hydrates Your Lymph System, Promotes Healing(muscle soreness), Energizes You and Enhances Your Mood, Cleanses Your System / is a Diuretic(antioxidant properties). So try it for 7-14 days without fail and see if you feel a difference!! 
 
2: Stay hydrated –  
The majority of the time we feel we’re hungry is due to the fact our body is actually dehydrated. The signal from the brain (the hypothalamus) to the body of hunger and hydration are pretty much in the same. You must learn to understand your body better. Pay close attention to the last time you had a meal compared with the last time you had something to drink. A 3% drop in hydration can result in up to 70% increase fatigue which is huge! Your brain is composed primarily of water so for more focus and concentration get your h20 in. Last but not least it aids in weight loss. Water actually serves several purposes in a diet plan. Along with the benefits to your digestive system and metabolism, it also causes you to feel more satisfied. When you are full you will not eat as much as you normally would allowing you to stick to the diet plan you have in place.
 
3. Consume protein with every meal – 
High-protein diets are known for their fat-reducing benefits. One reason they work is that eating a lot of protein reduces hunger. Protein is filling and when people eat more of it, they are more quickly satisfied and eat fewer calories. A high-quality protein intake of at least 20g-30g of protein at every meal is associated with less belly fat in a variety of studies. e.g.: 100g of any lean meat cooked = 20-30g protein.
 
4. Never go hungry – 
Something that I always try to do and insist on my clients doing is to make sure I/they eat before I leave the house. It’s something I often hear from personal training clients “Awh I had no other option so I just had that”. Your best option is to not let yourself get hungry in the first place, anticipate that you may be out for a while so either eat before you leave, take some food with you or make sure that you make the best choice if/when you go hungry and you opt for the cleanest source of foods rather than the easy option or quick fix. When we’re hungry we’re liable to make the wrong choices.
