DECEMBER - #wwphotoaday

December?! DECEMBER!!! Where has 2015 gone?!?!

The last month for the #WWPHOTOADAY challenge for this year but it will be back with a vengeance in 2016 to keep us all on our toes! Look forward to seeing all your fab pics... you'll find me >>> HERE <<<

You will get there...

It's called a journey because it doesn't happen over night... 

Be patient and be kind to yourself...

If you work for it you will succeed... 

Tomorrow starts today...

Always going to start again tomorrow? Monday? After the weekend? 

Start now... You've messed up...
You know its a slippery slope... don't sabotage yourself...

It's done.. it's in the past and you can't undo it... torturing yourself 
and using it as an excuse to just derail isn't acceptable.. 
you're worth more and you should treat yourself better... 

After working so hard, why let a biscuit, a bag of crisps, one meal ruin your success... 
Give yourself a fighting chance... because when you give up... 
you're giving up on you... 

FYI - I'm shouting ALL this to myself in my 'army officer' voice!

'W' - #xmascountdown

'W' is for... 

WATER hardest thing to get into us this time of year... and the experts will tell us that bine times out of ten we're thirsty rather than hungry.. so here's some tips.. 

There's a fab cordial from MiWadi that is sweetened with Steiva, a natural sugar and it's lovely... 
also leave your water at room temperature... it can be easier to drink it when it's not so cold...

If cordial isn't your thing, mix some fruit juice through your water... just enough to give it a bit of colour and flavour... slice up some oranges, plums, lemons whatever takes your fancy and let it steep in the fridge over night... it's SO good! I did a post earlier in the year >>> HERE <<< 

Leave a water bottle everywhere!!! On your desk, in the car, side pocket of your sports bag.. you name it there's a half a bottle of water there that I've left behind... I drink pint of water if I'm waiting for the kettle to boil... especially at this time of year, when it's so easy to grab cup of tea and a biccie! It makes me feel fuller and I'm not so quick to reach for the goodies with my cup of tea... 

You don't need a gym, a personal trainer... you need to put one foot in front of the other and repeat! It really is SO good for you and I know this time of year isn't great for getting out but try a few times a week to hit the pavement... meet a pal and chin wag your way around the park before you know it you're done and you're up to speed on all the goss! 

Yup, she's on about tracking... again!!! But honestly, one week of tracking will open your eyes to exactly what you're eating and when... best tool in Weight Watchers in my opinion and FREE! 

Welsh Rarebit... I mean with cheese... all melty... *drools*  Perfect comfort food for this weather... 
You can find the recipe >>> HERE <<<

It's mental...

This time of year is when people struggle the most with weight loss and staying healthy, 
the dark evenings and mornings, the wet miserable weather doesn't help...
the shops are full of temptation for a holiday that is still over a month away.. 
and its so easy to just throw in the towel and promise yourself 
that you'll start afresh in the new year, resolutions galore... but that's weeks away, 
and think of how much damage can be done between now and then... 

Set yourself in the right frame of mind for the next few weeks, don't give up on yourself...

JWV+ Juices...

You all know how I'm all about supporting Irish products and buying local... well here's a new juice drink on the Irish market that is low in calories, no added sugar and fizz free... I love the Mixed Berry one! Available in most of the usual haunts... €1.50 - €1.99 depending on where you buy it... a great alternative to the fizzy drinks we tend to grab mindlessly for a sugar kick!

JWV+ which stand for Juice + Water + Vitamins come in two flavours...

Antioxidant JWV+ Orange & Mandarin with Green Tea per 500ml - 1PP

Energise JWV+ Mixed berries with Roobios Tea & Ginseng per 500ml - 0PP

Gluten free, suitable for vegans and there's 7 essential vitamins in each bottle! 
If you're looking for something different to try 
and to help up your water intake this might be the ticket! 

'V' - #xmascountdown

'V' is for

Veggies... Yup... all the goodness, no processing... full of flavour and seasonal... Its the one big change most people make, and once you learn to love them and cook with them and flavour them correctly you can have the best diet going and not feel like it's a diet... your skin improves, you have more energy the list is endless... If you can't bare the thought of shopping for veg all the supermarkets deliver now or check out ... they deliver custom made boxes of fruit and veg to your home or office... so being too busy isn't a good enough excuse! Check out the kind of boxes they supply >>> HERE <<< 

Oh My Veggies is another fantastic blog to follow... when anyone says veggies are boring and all taste the same I send them here! AMAZING recipes full of variety and flavour! GO follow! >>> HERE <<< 

and no, it's not all veggies today... if you love a bit of cheesecake, check out this Vanilla Cheesecake from the WW UK site for only 6PP a slice *drools* ... recipe >>> HERE <<< 

Can't believe we're so close to Xmas now! Stick with it everyone, you'll be so happy you did! x
