Week 8!

Hi Everyone,:wave:
After a week off i’v seen a few gains this week, lets get back on track, we are over half way now so need to see all your hard efforts really starting to pay off.

The weather is changing!!:smiley: lighter mornings and slowly staying lighter longer in the evenings, why not try and get yourself up and moving ready for the day by doing a little more exercise including…

  • Going to the gym (go for a swim, cardio on the machines)

  • Go for a brisk walk

  • Go for a jog/run

  • If you have cardio equipment at home make use of that and start getting into a routine

You may start to find a little more exercise will change your bad eating habits:+1:

On the subject of food … Kacie’s Tip of the Week :bulb:this week is all about foods for Spring time, listing a few foods which are in season at the moment. (NOT INCLUDING EASTER EGGS)

  • Fruits- Apricots, cherries, strawberries, Grapefruit, Gooseberries :cherries::peach::strawberry:

  • Vegetables- Asparagus, carrots, Kale, Leeks, Radishes, Spinach, Spring onion :carrot:

  • Meat- Beef steaks, Chicken, Sausages, Spring lamb :cut_of_meat::poultry_leg:

  • Fish- Crab, Lobster, Prawns, Sea Bass, Trout :fried_shrimp:

Be great to see you have a go cooking with some of these foods, start experimenting with foods you don’t normally cook with, light on the stomach meals are the way to go through Spring. :sunny::sunflower::blossom::tulip:
