Guest Post: Eat Food, Just Enough, Mainly Plants, by Fiona Wray

Eat Food, Just Enough, Mainly PlantsI’m going to buck the trend here and not offer up a new healthy eating plan for 2016. I could add to the plethora of information already out there and consequently add to the confusion, as every newspaper, magazine, TV show and celebrity seems to have an opinion - all different to the others. It’s hard not to be swept along with the tidal wave of enthusiasm and there’s nothing wrong with New Year’s resolve, but much of this energy will be lost before we hit March, leaving many people feeling confused, disappointed and inadequate.

Rather Lovely Organic Skin Care Review

Rather Lovely is a natural skincare and home fragrancing brand, headed by homeopath, Fiona Wray. The range is packed with natural, kind-to-skin ingredients and makes a lovely gift for anyone in need of a bit of pampering (that'll be me, then!).

The range features body lotions, hand creams, bath salts and soaps, as well as candles and diffusers. All available in a variety of scents, are rich in essential oils and free from artificial fragrances and harsh chemicals like the detergents found in store-bought soaps. 

I've been testing out the citrus organic body lotion (£16) and floral organic soap (£12)...

Ignite: 4 Weeks to A Leaner, Faster and Hotter Body - by Julia Buckley (Book Review)

Ignite Julia Buckley
This time last year, BTBS had the pleasure of three guests posts from personal trainer and author of 'Fat Burn Revolution', Julia Buckley. Julia has since released her latest eBook: Ignite. Ignite, is an incredibly intense four week workout plan which'll certainly get you the results you want. But you'll have to work for it! 

The Ignite program consists of explosive HIIT workouts, which are great to mix in with endurance cardio sessions and weight training for a well rounded fitness program. I'd recommend it for for those who are already in pretty great shape and in need of a challenge to get the last few stubborn pounds off.

How to improve your health when you're stuck in the office all day

The risk posed to our health by sitting down at work all day are well known - a greater risk of obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. Then there's the likelihood of stuffing our faces with the office biscuit tin (this isn't just me, is it?), skipping lunch because a meeting has taken far longer than expected and then staying well past 5pm to finish off a project in time for pressing deadline. By the time you get home, you're left feeling exhausted, stressed and tired. 

While a normal office (read: not Google or Apple!) lacks the money or space for treadmill desks or designated pods for middle of the day naps, there are still a variety of ways to make your work environment healthier...

Monday Motivation - 25th Jan

It doesn't matter how long it takes to reach your goal. What matters is that you reach it.

"It doesn't matter how long it takes to reach your goal. What matters is that you reach it."

Weight loss is not a race. There are no medals to be earned from being the fastest to lose weight. In fact, trying to lose weight too quickly will most likely backfire in the form of a sluggish metabolism. 

Take your time, with each day that passes you're one step closer to your goal. It doesn't even matter if sometimes, you take a few steps backwards. We all have set backs, after all. Keep going!
