How Not To Let A Slip-Up Land You Back At Square One

When it comes to changing your life, it’s not an ‘all or nothing’ game. You don’t give up your job after a day off, and you don’t stop eating food just ‘cause you once ate a dodgy kebab. It’s the same with your new habits. You shouldn’t give up your healthy eating regime just because you succumbed to a slice of cake, and you shouldn’t start smoking again after one cheeky puff in a moment of weakness. I watch my daughter grow and learn every single day, and I know that if she gave up on something when she couldn’t… Onwards! ->

When Is It OK To Watch TV Instead Of Going To The Gym?

  There are a billion different things you can do to help you on your GYST journey, but there are also a billion excuses that will stop you getting there. We’ve all used them at some point or another, and we all continue to use them. They’re usually some iteration of not having the energy or not having the time.

Out With The Old… Literally

  Another year over, a new one just begun. I’ve got very exciting things planned for the site this year, just as I’m sure you have very exciting things planned for your life! If you’ve made a resolution, I’d be willing to put good money on it falling into one of the following categories:   Health (eating a balanced diet and getting fit) Wealth (eliminating debt and starting to save) Relationships (love and laughter) Housekeeping (keeping your home clean and tidy) Organisation (better time-keeping & scheduling) Personal care (more ‘me time’, rest and relaxation, expanding your horizons)   Am I… Onwards! ->
