I go through phases of being really healthy and not so healthy but it really helps to understand what is and what isn’t good for you. I am not a trained nutritionist but I have done quite a bit of research and been quite careful of the resources I use. I try to avoid what I call diet fads as I have found that they just zap your energy a lot of the time and I just focus on putting good stuff in my body (most of the time).
I have put together 4 different meal plans and some of the ingredients initially push up your food bill a bit but the idea is to rotate the meal plans so you will use many of the ingredients over and again. It is mostly gluten free but I am not actually gluten free, I just like lots of the recipes. It does focus as much as possible on natural foods though.
My exercise plan is based on the app ‘couch25k’ as I am just getting back into running after having my daughter. I find it manageable to get out for a 30 minute run after my daughter is in bed and it also really clears my head at the end of the day. Obviously strength training is also really important, especially for women, as we are more prone to osteoporosis, so I also try to do some resistance work at home on my non-running days.
