Tips for a Healthy 2013


Tips for a Healthy 2013

• Add CHIA seeds to your smoothies or meals – they will keep you hydrated reducing cravings and over eating. - Lee Anne Wann, Fitness specialist and sustainable change health practitioner.

• Take the 7 day challenge: no matter how you feel, have breakfast within 30 minutes of waking for 7 days to reset your body. You will feel so much better. - Lee Anne Wann, Fitness specialist and sustainable change health practitioner.

• Prepare for jelly legs. Practice running/walking off the bike after a long training to get used to the feeling of wobbly post-cycling legs. If you save this to race day you will get a big shock!

• Identify your most productive time. Some people are better at exercising in the morning while others feel fresher in the evening and it is very important to identify what works for you. If you force yourself to run in the mornings when you would prefer to run at night, not only will you get less out of each training session, but you will start to resent your workouts and become less likely to stick to your schedule. – Robyn Pearce, CPS, International time management expert.

• Find a buddy You don’t have to be a fitness expert to realise you are far more likely to stick to an exercise regime if you have someone to motivate you/ pull you out of bed when you can’t manage it yourself. The Bissell women’s tri-series offers a ‘you for two’ promotion with discounted rates if you enter with a friend. – Robyn Pearce, CPS, International time management expert.

• The Bissell Women’s Series is an entry level Triathlon and duathlon group of events taking place across NewZealand in 2013. With training plans that only take 3-4 hours a week, it’s attainable for the everyday woman. Go to
