Kick Your New Year Resolution Into Gear!

2018 is here and there’s still time to make some new year’s resolutions! If 2018 is the year you’re aspiring to get fit, work out or eat healthier, we have some fantastic tips to help keep you on track as you set your healthy lifestyle goals…

Eat Well

The first step to a healthy lifestyle is eating well. Whether you’re trying #Veganuary or you just want to cut out the snacks, this is the first step to your success in 2018! Try some of the tips below to bust those bad eating habits and get on track

Meal planning.

Plan your meals in advance to avoid the temptation of eating out. Make a big batch on a day when you have some free time and store in Tupperware boxes to keep them fresh in the fridge. Try this 3-pack from Wilko for £3.75

Drink More Water.

If you think water alone is a little boring, why not try a fruit infuser instead? Wilkos have a 2.1 litre fruit infuser for £3.00, perfect for popping in the fridge. Add berries for a fruity twist, or cucumber and lemon for something a little more refreshing.

Swap The Snacks.

Everyone loves snacking. However, rather than reaching for a bar of chocolate or crisps, try swapping to a healthier alternative. Grape Tree have a selection of nuts and dried fruit that should satisfy those mid-afternoon hunger pangs!

Swap The Takeaway.

Swap an unhealthy takeaway for a homemade one instead. Grab this Wok from Wilko for £8.00 and get cooking!

Recipe Inspiration.

A little stuck for inspiration on what to cook? Load up on some cookbooks from The Works. Books start from as little as £1.00 so you have no excuse to make something bland and boring!

Vitamins & supplements.

Add some vitamins and supplements to your diet for an added health boost. We recommend the cod liver oil capsules from Superdrug at £4.99 for a 2 month supply.

Going Vegan?

If you’re thinking of going full vegan, or just want to cut down on non-vegan food, browse the vegan section at Grape Tree. We are loving the look of the vegan sugar free sweet packs with classics like rhubarb & custard and pear drops!

Get Fit & Workout!

Once you’ve started eating healthily, it’s time to work up a sweat! Organising everything before you start working out will help you in the long run.

Get The Right Kit.

The right kit will make a big difference as to whether your work out was a success or a flop. Pop into Sports Direct for great workout kit at an even better price. Check out these running trainers by Reebok for a bargain £13.00!

Protect Yourself.

Safety is key when you’re working out, especially if you enjoy outdoor sports. If you’re thinking of taking up cycling, make sure you get a good helmet. This helmet by Muddyfox is reduced from £62.99 to £22.00 – available at Sports Direct.

Add A Protein Boost.

Adding protein to you diet can give you that extra boost to turn a normal workout into a great workout. One way you can do this easily is with protein shakes. The Maximuscle Protein Powder is currently on offer at Boots at £17.49 for 1.4kg – that’s half price!

Get The Kids Involved.

One way to keep you motivated is with a little help from the family! Pick up some sports kit for the kids at Sports Direct and go on a family jog, bike ride or game of football.

Bring The Gym To Your Home.

Rainy day, or not feeling like leaving the house? Make sure you have some equipment at home so that you have no excuse! This body sculpture tummy action rower is £12.99 at Superdrug. There’s no excuses now!

Track Your Activity.

Tracking your activity throughout the day will give you an idea of where you need to improve. Try the Fitbit Alta HR at Boots for £97.00 and watch yourself progress month by month!

Good Luck!
