Procrastination is the Castration of our Goals & Dreams


Where’s that snooze button?

I’ll wait until the weekend is over to start my healthy eating regime.

I’ll just finish watching the end of this program and then I’ll go for a walk.

Another 10 minutes then I’ll get up.

I don’t know enough about “Clean” eating to start eating healthy.

“Every vice has its excuse ready.”
Publilius Syrus


As the saying goes “procrastination is the thief of time”, we spend our time getting ready to get ready ,making excuses, putting off what we know we should and can do  in so many areas of our lives and improving our health, eating habits and exercise is no different.


So here are 5 simple steps to get you doing what you said you would do!!

1) 5,4,3,2,1….GO!



5 seconds


When your alarm goes off in the morning get your feet on the floor within 5 seconds.

“If you have an impulse to act on a goal i.e. get out of bed when your alarm goes off, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill the idea”, says Mel Robbins author of The 5 Second Rule.


2) Make Sunday your B-atch!!

On Sunday Batch cook some meals for the week ahead so you hit the ground running once the week kicks off. Left over’s from Sundays could be your Monday lunch or dinner.

Freeze left over Bolognese in tuber-ware containers and take one out in the morning before you go to work so your half way to having dinner ready when you get in the evening .

3) Get your swag on!

Get your training gear on before you leave work and then  go for a walk or jog or the gym before you go home because we all  know what happens once we get inside that door…kids,homework,our  favourite TV program,hunger,”ah ill go tomorrow “syndrome.


4) Buddy Up.





Get an accountability partner or partners.
Yep team up with one of your friends or work colleagues and hold each other accountable regards your food choices or commitment to going for a walk or jog at lunch time, after work or at the weekend.


5) Be sneaky with your snacks.




Strategically place healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts, bottles of water & genuinely healthy bars ,in your car, at your work desk ,in your home so when you fall  in to that state called HANGRY ,a quick healthy snack is only an arm’s length or two away to take that hunger edge off.



Finally…Knowing what to do will never be enough when it comes to changing your lifestyle for the better but taking ACTION on some of these 5 steps will move you in the direction of a healthier, happier body and mind.

Don’t overwhelm yourself with large tasks just break them down into small steps to be completed & accomplished in a short space of time rather than one large daunting task.
