I always make the easy mistake of giving myself the same portion size as the boyf, and he eats a lot more than I do. This mistake either ends up with food going to waste, or me eating much more than I really need to. This site helps to show you to portion size you should be eating.
You could grow your own food.
(source) You might think that you need a big garden to be able to grow anything, but that’s not true.
You could grow some herbs in the windowsill, a few potatoes in a barrel and some easy veg such as carrots, leeks or tomatoes. Not only will this save you money each time you go shopping, but it will encourage you to eat more healthily as you grew it yourself!
Exercise at home, it’s totally free!
(source) Either follow one of the millions of plans you can find online, or grab yourself an exercise DVD and get to it. Personally I have ‘Mel B’s Totally Fit’ DVD. Sounds silly, but it’s actually really good and fun too!
(source) Walk anywhere and everywhere. Walk to the shop, walk to the park, go for a walk just to get some fresh air, or if it’s not too far, walk instead of using the car! I go for a walk everyday with the pushchair, even if it’s only for 20 mins. It’s good exercise, and it’s free!
As well as exercising, it’s also nice to take some time out in the evening to pamper yourself.
Instead of purchasing facemasks or getting your nails done, sit down with a girly film and diy! I've got some Spa DIY ideas here:)
Make some soup.
(source) If you make a big batch of soup, it can last you a week. That’s a week’s worth of lunches. There are so many recipes to try, and it’s so much healthier as you know exactly what’s in it. Personally I HATE vegetables, but when I make soup, I put all kinds of vegetables in, and blend them together so I can’t see them! Haha. Sounds silly, but at least I eat them then, and it tastes delicious!
Especially if it’s just because you’re bored or distracted. Have some healthy snacks around the house instead, as well as a full fruit bowl. I always eat more in the evenings as I’m distracted by the television!
