I have been a vegetarian for four years now and I just want to make more difference to the environment. I currently drive to work, which is a very short journey only 15 minutes and I waste so much petrol and energy using a car to do so! Therefore, I want to cycle to work everyday and hopefully help the environment while I am at it.
Now I won’t lie this bike won’t only be for cycling to work but weekend trips to a park or cafe of some kind, the beach and maybe even an odd picnic!
2. EXERCISE MORE
I am a gymnastics coach and part of that is being fit to be able to lift and keep up with the kids. It also involves kids looking up to you in terms of a role model and I feel I need to eat and exercise well to show them that it’s a healthy lifestyle. That means I’ll be rejoining the gym in January and getting back into lifting weights and cardio. I actually really like going to the gym, it’s a great escape from the world and feel great afterwards.
3. HEALTHY EATING
Oh I can only imagine how we all feel after the Christmas break! yep it’s back to eating well and not gorging in the nicest of treats and dinners. I’ve been lacking on drinking my daily water intake and found that adding a concentrate to my water helped me get it all in. It just adds some flavour without the calories of a soft drink, yay for that!
One of my favourite meals is eggs and avocado on toast. I know, so basic but it tastes so good. Although I’m a veggie, I still want to get more vegetables into my diet and try more recipes as I really enjoy cooking. I also want to bring more homemade meals to work rather than picking up lunch from the shop. It’s so much healthier and not tempted to buy chocolate.
4. ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS
One of my favourite things to do is to go to a little quaint cafe and sit while enjoying a good coffee. Whether it’s by myself or with a friend, it’s a nice way to unwind or even do work. We are all living busy lifestyles and it’s nice to find the little things that make us happy.
5. FEEDING CREATIVITY
We are naturally creative creatures and we should express it in whatever way makes us happy. Some find creativity through their clothes or hobbies like music and art. I personally love photography. I’ve always had a strong desire to take photos and edit them and blogging has fed into this creativity. I’ve never been much of a writer so I’m hoping my photos speak more than my words!
