    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Figured out how to make homemade wholemeal crumpets, inspired by a recipe I found on Food52. Only problem now is how to stop thinking about said home made crumpets in order to not turn self in to crumpet. Eeeeeep heeeellllllppppppplp!!! Truth: They're time consuming AF to make, which I learnt the first time and vowed not to make them again/often. So of course it played out like....Woke up the next day started figuring out a gluten free variation and then 2 days later did a double batch of the original wholemeal variety lol.

5 Ways To Reboot Your Health Routine

Words and image: GENEVIEVE MORTON

Somewhere between tapping’ snooze’ and chocolate-fuelled Netflix binges, you may have abandoned your healthy routine. It’s not always easy to eat well and exercise in Winter when you’re craving comfort food and extra time under the doona.

The start of Spring is a great time to reboot your healthy routine – and make it even better.

5 WAYS TO REBOOT YOUR HEALTH ROUTINE:

  1. Buddy up. You may not be the only one who spent too much time on the couch this Winter. Find your running buddies and set up a weekly time and place to meet for a workout. You’re less likely to flake on a workout if someone is depending on you to be there. According to hbfitness.com.au you’ll get more physical benefits out of a shared session too. ‘You’ll work a bit harder with a partner – it can bring out a competitive instinct that allows you both to push your limits.’ You’re also more likely to try exercise classes outside your comfort zone like zumba or bikram yoga.
  2. Plan to enjoy it.  Having a militant gym schedule is great – unless you don’t like it. You need to enjoy your healthy routine or you won’t maintain it. The best kind of motivation is ‘intrinsic’ where it’s easier to get going because you love what you’re doing. So, ask yourself what you used to like about your healthy routine? Drag out your favourite recipe books and go back to the walking track you love. Meanwhile, let go of what you didn’t like about your old routine (the one you left behind in Winter). If you really don’t like taking exercise classes, don’t schedule them into your week. If you don’t like eating salad for dinner, don’t make it. Plan to enjoy your healthy routine as much as possible and you’ll stick to it – long-term.
  3. Set a bedtime alarm. Yes, alarms aren’t just for torturing yourself with at 6am. Set an alarm at a certain time at night to remind you to start your wind down to bed routine. The right amount of sleep is the foundation of a healthy routine so aim to get between 7 and 9 hours a night. According to shape.com sleep controls your diet. ‘Lack of sleep pushes you in the direction of the foods you know you shouldn’t eat. You just don’t have the mental clarity to make good decisions, specifically with the regards to the food you eat – or the foods you want to avoid.’ The secret to solid snoozing is sticking to a sleep schedule. Get up at the same time everyday – even on weekends. Set a bedtime for yourself allowing at least 7 hours sleep – and stick to it.
  4. Pack your lunch. Sounds simple, right? Packing a healthy lunch along with snacks for the entire day stops you from engaging in an unhealthy afternoon spiral. Pack your gym gear too. Having your gym bag packed and ready to go with you at work will help you get to the gym during your lunch break or after work. Setting yourself up for success means planning for potential slip-ups too. You can plan ahead by simply knowing what your unhealthy eating triggers are. Your stressful job sends you on a chocolate binge? Make a healthier after dinner alternative and stash it in the freezer. Friday night means pizza? Make a healthy zucchini-base pizza for the freezer too.
  5. Build yourself back up. Not many of us can jump straight into HIIT five times a week after slothing about on the couch all Winter. Start with something easy. Get outside and take the dog for a walk. Make a start and go from there. Treat exercise like an unbreakable work meeting. Schedule it in your diary and don’t miss it. Once you get rolling, set yourself a personal challenge. Having a 4 or 6 week challenge to achieve a certain goal will get you back into an exercise routine and set you up for ongoing healthy exercise habits.
