A little healthier, a little fitter! πŸ§˜πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ ft. me trying to get out of my past potato habits

Hello you! Amber here, well, it’s not gonna be anybody else, is it?!

So, today’s post is about me becoming healthier in myself, and the steps I will be taking to do so✨

So, I’ve noticed that lately, I’ve not been doing as much exercise as I should be doing, and it’s causing me to be lazy, which is not a good habit to get into! So, here are some of the things I’m doing, and my mum is being really supportive about it, she’s finding healthy recipes for snack bars, nutritious dinners πŸ’› So, thanks mum 😊

1. Exercising at least once a week

I will be exercising at least once a week, whether that is going on a walk with my mum, going swimming, or doing a work-out on a fitness app (getting on to that subject can anybody recommend any free fitness apps? πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ)

2. Eating healthier

I am now being aware of what I’m eating, as I want to feel healthy in myself, and I can’t if I’m shovelling un-nutritious food in my mouth (I’m not mocking you – I’m still doing it πŸ˜‚) For after school snacks, me and my mum are going to make these lovely snack bars that look really good.

3. Eat more fruit and veg

Yep, I’m not veg’s number one fan – who is though?! But I need to get over it and eat them because they are good for me and if I want to be healthy, I need to suffer some of the down-sides.

4. Get more sleep

Yes, I literally am always tired, and it’s really not good for my general health. I need to make sure I get 9-10 hours of sleep (don’t judge, I love sleep 😴). Fun Fact, you know you spend half your life in bed? Just food for thought πŸ˜‰

5. Take my vitamins

I suffer with a basically, crap immune system πŸ™„ It’s so bad I’ve donated a whole page of my bullet journal to tracking when I get ill so I can see if the vitamins are helping. If you ask my friends, they’ll tell you that I’m ill a lot. I’ve missed a lot of school, I need to get control of it before it gets worse πŸ€’

Well, who thinks that I’m going to be able to get healthier?

Do you believe in me?

Are you suffering from potato syndrome (Bayance, I’ve got to quit potato club πŸ˜‚)

  1. I too suffer from this. Your goals are very realistic which I love. I’ll definitely try to exercise much more regularly. Starting with once a week.

    Great tips 😊

    1. Don’t worry then, your not the only one suffering from it! Thank you, I try to aim small (kinda) and then aim higher, but I’m all about baby steps 🌟 Yasss! That’s a great star, Eva, once a week is a realistic goal that I’m sure you’ll manage to achieve πŸ’› I’m exercising once a week aswell! And it’s (surprisingly) working out for me!!
      Thank you for checking out my lil’ blog,
      Amber x
      ps I’ll defo be checking out your blog!

      1. Starting and staying on is the biggest challenge. I don’t know why exercising is such a chore for me. I can diet but exercising is such a challenge.

        Small and steady wins the race:)

    1. Thanks Hannah, I’ve slipped up a bit, but over-all I’ve tried, and I think that’s what counts ✨ Thanks for reading 😊

  2. We have a lot in common lol! I really should sleep more too, I’m just never tired at night! Sorry I’ve been missing your posts, I’ve been away!

    1. Yep, it’s good to know I’m not the only person struggling with fitness and sleep-struggles πŸ˜– Yeah, it’s really difficult. I’m tired when I wake up, but not (always) when it’s night time ✨ I’m pretty sure that’s why they invented binge-watching πŸ˜‚ or binge-reading (me).
      No worries! 😊 I wondered where you’d gone, but I thought that everybody needs to take a break from blogging and you were probs away! πŸ™‚ Great to have you back!

  3. I can definitely relate to this Amber! ✨ Honestly the amount of times I’ve decided to go for a run & the amount of times it’s not actually happened is too many times to count! πŸ˜‚ I don’t use any fitness apps but maybe I should get one for the purpose of more self motivation, who knows? And, I try to get around 8-9 hours of sleep each night, so I’m not judging you! πŸ’€ Some of my friend’s stay up & watch Netflix until midnight, and I seriously cannot do that, otherwise I’d literally be a walking zombie! πŸ˜‚ Sorry for the little anecdote there! Great post as usual Amber! πŸ’ž Autumn x

    1. Yep, it’s good to know I’m not the only potato in this world πŸ˜† (I’m not calling you a potato btw, just saying it’s good to know I’m the only one who struggles to get motivated to get out and go for a run! ((Din’t want you taking that the wrong way…)) )
      Self-motivation is definitely something I lack when it comes to fitness. If I find any apps, I will be letting you know! ✨ That’s really good! 😊 8-9 is roughly what I (am trying) to get but I think if I get a couple more hours, I will be a bright ray of sunshine! β˜€οΈ Same here, I’m just like β€˜How did you get out of bed in the morning?!’, I don’t think I would be able to get out of bed… πŸ˜΄πŸ˜† No worries πŸ˜‚
      Thanks Autumn, thank you for the lovely, relatable comment πŸ’›

  4. I’m definitely a person with potato syndrome.πŸ˜ͺ Sad to say this though.
    How I wish to eat a little healthier and get into exercising for good! But the only exercise I do is in my head. πŸ€ͺ And needless to say I’m a proclaimed foodie. So when I get to eat an extra cheese burger or anything thats tempting, I literally forgot about eating healthy. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
    Anyways, good luck with your goals girl! πŸ’•πŸ˜€

    1. Join the club girl! πŸ˜† I know, it’s not a club that I’m proud of.
      Tell me about, food is the way of life, but I think I eat too much of what’s not good for me than what is, which is not good. It’s great to enjoy food and have the n-healthy stuff, because believe me, I’m not going to stop eating my body-weight in chips and burgers, just maybe reduce it πŸ˜… Yep, all that matters is that delicious burger… πŸ˜‹
      Thanks Minnu! Same to you on your goals ✨

  5. I DEFINITEY have potato syndrome XD. I’m also trying to get more sleep and eat healthier! Good luck with your goals!! πŸ™‚

  6. I definitely suffer from potato syndrome 😭. I keep telling myself that I will start exercising once i’m done with this never-ending pile of uni work. Thank fully it’s all die on monday so I can get to my being healthy goals soon. Have you tried the β€œMyFitnessPal” app btw? It’s good for tracking what you’re eating and shows you calories and nutritional values. Good luck with your goals!! πŸ’–

    1. Join the group πŸ˜† Same here, once I’ve finished all my school-work I’m like, I’m going to go for a walk! And then I just end up collapsing on the couch, binge-watching πŸ˜‚ That’s great! Now I’m back in routine, I can hopefully fit in some time to exercise. Oooo, I’ve not tried that app yet! πŸ’› It sounds great, definitely something I’m looking forward to checking out 😊 Thank you soo much for recommending an app! ✨ And thanks for reading Minna πŸ˜‰

      1. No worries, I’ve been using the app for a long time and I find it really useful. Wishing you all the best Amber x

  7. Loved this – amazing post as usual ✨😊! I need to get healthier too and these ambitions are great – you go gurl ! βœ¨πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ‘

    1. Thanks Isabel! πŸ’› Let’s hope we can both get a little healthier! πŸ˜‰ Thanks! Let’s hope I can achieve these ambitions ✨🌟
