WILLPOWER WORKOUT #2

ENG: You might have read about my Willpower Workout experience earlier in January (click HERE), an event organized by Whitworths UK, focusing on how to strengthen one’s willpower for achieving goals. In today’s post I will be sharing the physical and nutritional part of it, which btw you can also watch on YouTube (click HERE).

THE PHYSICAL ASPECT

This section was guided by Lilly Sabri, who is a physiotherapist, Pilates expert and fitstagrammer with 40k Instagram followers. Now, my first encounter with her was in the locker room, where I changed into my workout outfit. As I glanced up for a sec I spotted this woman with the perfect body (little did I know it was Lilly) – it took me a real effort not to stare and put myself into an awkwardly creepy situation. So, I just made a mental image of her (easily enough to keep up my willpower, though), noting that THIS is what I would like to achieve (sometime).

Lilly guided us through a relaxation session, emphasizing how our body needs to catch up and heal after work outs in order to maintain its health and well being, and also to prevent us from injuries. Making the effort and time for stretching and cooling down is essential, and will positively contribute to our willpower as well. (watch the video HERE)

THE NUTRITIONAL ASPECT

Sian Porter – dietitian and nutritionist with over 20 years’ experience, believes that mindfulness is the most important thing when it comes to maintaining our diet willpower. Here are the best tips from her:

  • Keep a food diary – write down for a while what and when you eat, and why. Are you really hungry, or stressed, maybe dealing with a hangover? A diary will give you an overview of your habits, making you understand your choices and contribute to a more conscious diet plan
  • Portion control – if you set up a portion “limit” for your meals it will be easier not to overeat yourself. Whitworths Shots are for example perfect for a portion controlled snack during the day – will sooth your sweet teeth, yet keep you on track
  • Healthy household – do not store unhealthy food at home. You are less likely to eat junk if you don’t have it at home. If you occasionally crave something like that have it dining out – and do not feel guilty, you can have it as long as it is not an everyday treat.
  • Fruits and Veggies – a great way to make sure you have your greens is to place them first on your plate. Cover half of it with salad, and only then put your main meal on the plate.

Stay tuned, as later this month I will share interesting tips from the hypnotherapist and sleep expert.

HU: Januarban voltam egy kivalo esemenyen, mely az akaratero edzesere szolgalt. Furan hangzik, tudom, nekem sem volt vilagos az elejen, hogy mit is takar. Kivancsi voltam, igy elmentem kiprobalni. 4 kulonbozo eloado beszelt arrol, hogy mikepp tartsuk aktivan az akarateronket, ami a felmeresek szerint februar elejere a legtobbunkben rohamos hanyatlasban van, ezert is fullad kudarcba oly sok ev eleji fogadalom, dieta, eletmodvaltas. Ma a fizioterapeuta es a dietetikus tanacsait osztom meg, mig a kovetkezo reszben a hipnoterapeuta es az alvaskutato erdekes megfigyeleseit olvashatjatok majd.

FIZIKAI SZEMPONT

Lilly (fizioterapeuta, Pilates oktato es Instagram fitness guru) tartott nekunk egy rovid relaxacios gyakorlatot, hangsulyozva a pihenes, nyujtas fontossagat. Nagyon sokan elfeledkezunk ezekrol az edzes utan, igy testunknek tovabb tart regeneralodni, ami akar seruleshez is vezethet, amibol pedig mar egyenes aranyosan kovetezik, hogy a kutyanak sem lesz kedve megint edzeni. Nagyon fontos tehat, hogy megadjuk a testunknek a szamara letfontosagu pihenest, nyujtsuk meg izmainkat terheles utan, figyeljunk oda erre is. (katt IDE Lilly Instagram profiljaert, erdemes megnezni!)

TAPLALKOZASI SZEMPONT

Sian Porter taplalkozasi tanacsado szerint az egyik legfontosabb dolog dietank betartasahoz a tudatossag. Ime az o tippjei:

  • Etelnaplo – egy heten keresztul ird le mit, mikor es miert eszel. Ezzel nemcsak egy atfogo kepet kapsz etkezesi szokasaidrol, de megtanulhatsz belole jobban odafigyelni arra is, hogy tenyleg csak akkor egyel, ha ehes vagy. Figyeld meg kedved, energiaszinted hogyan befolyasolja a valos vagy velt ehsegedet.
  • Adagolas – ha kialakitasz egy adag limitet, akkor sokkal konnyebb lesz majd odafigyelned arra, hogy mennyit eszel. Ez azt is megelozi, hogy folyamatosan tuledd magad, 2-3-szor ujrarakd a tanyerod, mikor mar nem is vagy ehes, csak a szemed kivanja.
  • Tiszta eleskamra – ne tarts otthon egeszsegtelen eteleket. Ha hebe-hoba megkivansz valami nagyon nemkosert, akkor azt ne otthon, hanem mondjuk etteremben edd. Ha megszokod, hogy otthon csakis szamodra elonyos eteleket fogyasztasz, akkor peldaul az is kevesbe csabit majd, hogy a teve elott halalra nassold magad.
  • Gyumolcs es zoldseg – egy nagyszeru es egyszeru modja a zold bevitelnek, ha a tanyerod felet eloszor elarasztod salataval, s csak azutan pakolod ra a foetelt (persze ezt is normalis adagokban).

Ennyi volt a mese mara, a kovetkezo reszt februar vegere tervezem. Addig is kivancsian varom a ti tippjeiteket is!
