Don’t let go of your target!

The England rugby team are in a bit of a re-building phase!! South Africa have done it, Australia have been through it, New Zealand…..well they always seem to be great!!
Although under heavy pressure to make wholesale changes after heavy defeats in the past few weeks, new England manager, Martin Johnson, has resisted and stuck mostly to his crop of young (mostly!) players. This not only shows faith, and instills confidence in the players, but is a building block for future success. You get nowhere by making changes, and upsetting the balance week-in, week-out. The same can be said for your eating habits.

Occasionally there will be times when you ‘fall off track’ such as meals out, holiday’s etc, but DON’T lose heart. Don’t use that occassion as a “Oh, this isn’t working (like the current rugby results!), I won’t worry about the rest of the week”. If you can keep to a sensible eating plan for 80% of the time, your results will come.
Set yourself a target, set a goal, and if “a bad result” occurs, minimise the impact, stick with your initial ideas, and you will get your results.

Fingers crossed for Saturday then!! It can only get better!

You should be eating more of;
– Lean protein (fish, white meat, good quality lean read meats)
– Lots of vegetables and fruit
– Lots of water
– Wholemeal rice, and oats

and grazing every 3 hours or so.

and eating less of;

– Sugary foods
– man made or processed foods
– wheat and pastas
– Alcohol, coffee

Have confidence, have belief, have self-motivation.
