Handy hints when eating out: Social events and eating out can sometimes be very daunting when on a weight loss journey, but it doesn’t mean we have to hide at home - there are plenty of ways to make wise choices and still enjoy a good time with family and friends as well as achieve weight loss

• Remember protein first • Always ask for your fish/ chicken/meat to be grilled • Order an entrée size protein portion with a green side salad • Eat moderately

• Read the menu carefully to identify the foods that is part of your weight loss program • Ask for soda water/filtered water in a wine glass to avoid the temptation of alcohol

• Qualified nanny over 12 years experience • Police certified • Home based and day care experience • Specialising in educating young minds • Teaches non-speaking kids, to become fluent in English • Best rate $5 per hour • • • •

Tips to get ready for Summer First things first. Start a food diary today to help refocus. Also it is a great way to exercise healthy habits and to refer back to when falling off the wagon Go shopping. Ensure the cupboards are stocked with what you need, not want and get rid of any junk food that may be in the house. Set your goals for the New Year ahead. What is it that you

want to achieve next with your weight loss? Did you want to start that new activity/exercise routine in 2014? After setting your goals, think about how you want to reward yourself for succeeding. Working towards something is always more motivating, for example, having your hair done or a pedicure, buying something special when you achieve your first goal!

Practice Impulse Control. If you are finding it hard to stick to your weight loss program, use impulse control to divert your attention and do something else, for example, have a glass of water if you feel hungry, walk the dog, do some gardening or fold the socks! Refresh. Remind yourself daily why you are on this journey and what you want to achieve with it.

Burn 100 calories each day... ... by doing one of the following: 1. Take a brisk walk for 20 minutes 2. Wash your car for 20 minutes 3. D  o housework for 30 minutes 4. Jog for 10 minutes 5. M  ow your lawn for 20 minutes 6. Wash your windows for 20 minutes

When planning your weight loss journey, add one of the above to your daily exercise routine.

Obviously you will need to follow your meal program and do your other exercise as per normal.

If you do a quick calculation, it adds up to 36500 calories for the year.

There are roughly 60 days till Christmas, that means 6000 calories extra can be burned till then and you will have a more tidy home amongst other things

To burn 1kg of fat, you need to burn 7700 calories, so this means by just making a daily habit of any of the above (or a combination), you will lose 4.74kg!!!

Give it a go!
