FEBRUARY CHALLENGE

FAST-FOOD FREE / WHOLE FOODS IN FEB .

img_6341Can  you believe January is almost over already? It feels like only last week that I was writing out our January challenge. Speaking of, who committed to the Jan challenge? Did you manage to keep a food diary of everything that you consumed each day? I’m proud to say that I did. It was the best way to keep myself accountable- was I eating because I was hungry or because I was bored? A lot of my unnecessary eating was on Monday’s when I get home  from the gym around 1pm and have no other plans until my husband gets home from work around 7pm. So now that I can physically see this, I have changed up my schedule for the next few Monday’s. I will now go from the gym to the store and no my groceries shopping for the week and then do my food prep on a Monday instead of a Sunday. That way I will be busy, have a plan and be super motivated seeing my nutrition plan for the week! How did you go?

FEBRUARY CHALLENGE comes in two parts, either a FAST FOOD FREE FEB or a WHOLE FOODS IN FEB challenge, depending on where you are starting. Continue reading

screen-shot-2017-01-21-at-6-34-44-am

Join me for Sunday Brunch at  the Cycle Bar in Easton.

After the 10.30am cycle session tomorrow, I will be hosting brunch for all the riders. I have spent the last few hours baking you all Banana & Choc Chip Proat Muffins (which smell fabulous if I do say so myself!) and tomorrow I will be whipping up some deliciously healthy cupcake omelettes too. If you can’t make the class, don’t stress- I will be sharing the recipes online tomorrow, so be sure to check my instagram (@simonemckennablog) for updates!

If you haven’t yet tried the Cycle Bar, get your first class for free on me!

HOT WORX.

img_6020OK- I have to share with you my latest obsession…HOTWORX at Planet Beach, Polaris.

Think of it essentially as a private hot box (big enough for 2-3 people to exercise in comfortably) that has a large TV screen that displays a variety of different programs that guide you through exercises and movements.  HOTWORX is the first ever fusion of infrared heat and isometrics and is a virtually instructed exercise program designed for users to experience the many benefits of infrared absorption, while completing a 30-minute workout session.

There are so many different exercise programs to choose from (and just quietly…there are more on the way) so there is bound to be something for everyone. Whether you want an intense workout, a foam rolling session, a good stretch or even just some “me” time- you need to try HOTWORX. Check out some of the programs on offer at Planet Beach Polaris.

AROUND THE BAR IN 30 DAYS- CYCLE BAR THAT IS!

764eb35c3ac31d2c524b3fbc_1200x600Nothing says New Year’s Resolution like a fresh passport. Before you roll your eyes and stop reading due to “insufficient funds” or “lack of time” or “no possible way of getting time off  work”… I have something in store for you that doesn’t require any of the above excuses!

Come along to the CycleBar in Easton and start your CYCLE PASSPORT!
The CycleBar team is offering some great incentives (and endless motivation) to work your way around the bar via their CycleStar Instructors. Each CycleStar Instructor brings something different to the table and with your passport, you get the opportunity to try them all.

Get ready to lose your old routine and clip into new rides, new instructors, and of course new beats. Every time you ride with a different CycleStar Instructor, they will mark your passport. Sounds like the motivation you need to get going right? All you have to do is go to five different instructors to make you eligible to enter their competition for the chance to win a night on the town and other prizes.

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-6-24-37-pmBut don’t stop at one passport stamp. After you’ve redeemed your first, every ride after that with a new instructor is another chance to win! So if you work well with an incentive to keep you accountable or perhaps some motivation to workout this new year- get down to the Cycle Bar in Easton! Trust me, you will be hooked before you know it!

SCHEDULE YOUR RIDE HERE!

JANUARY CHALLENGE

KEEP A FOOD DIARY.

img_18e1dfaf9379-1Physically writing down what you consume (both food and beverages) allows you to take a critical look at your food habits.
For example: What times are you eating? Are you eating because you are hungry? bored? tired?What kind of foods are you eating too much or too little of? Are you craving sweet foods at certain times of the day etc.

By recording EVERYTHING you put into your mouth, you are able to criticise, evaluate and then make healthy changes to your intake. By keeping a food diary you are being held accountable which may lead you to making healthier decisions. It may just shock you to look at a full day/week and eventually month of eating habits.

How to keep a food dairy? Continue reading
