New-Years-Resolutions-Quotes-Images-1011

One week into January and hopes of exercising more, spending less or breaking that bad habit are already fading. DON’T GIVE UP! You have 51 weeks to turn it around.

There’s a lot of negativity surrounding new year’s resolutions and, personally, I don’t see why. A new year is a new opportunity to improve yourself, learn something new or do that thing you’ve always wanted to do. Setting yourself a goal and working towards it can only be a positive thing. Even if it doesn’t last, at least you’ve tried.

Here are my top tips to help you stick to whatever your resolution may be:

Be realistic: make sure your resolution is not too ambitious or vague. If it’s manageable and measurable you’ll be more likely to stick to it.

Log your progress: keeping track of short-term success will motivate you to continue.dreamstime_l_18009384

Reward yourself: this doesn’t mean eating a bar of chocolate for everyday you keep healthy!

Don’t quit if you mess up: take it one step at a time. Nobody’s perfect!

It supposedly takes 21 days for a new activity to become habit, so stick with it and soon you won’t even need to think twice.

For those of you wanting to become healthier, here’s a delicious and filling low FODMAP recipe (adapted from Waitrose) to get you started:

Ingredients: (serves 4)

  • 3-4 tuna steaks
  • 400g carrots, peeled and grated
  • 200g parsnips, peeled and grated
  • 40g pine nuts
  • 100g rocket
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard

Mix the carrots, parsnips, rocket and pines nuts in a large bowl.  Mix the olive oil, white wine vinegar and mustard in a separate bowl, then pour over the grated veg.

Heat a small drop of olive oil in a pan and add the tuna steaks, turning once and cooking each side for 3-4 minutes. When ready, remove the tuna from the pan and cut into small pieces. Add it to the other ingredients, put in a serving dish and enoy!
