Spring has finally sprung in London, and I’m totally throwing myself into it! I don’t know about you, but when the sun is out and the flowers start to bloom, it utterly transforms my mental state. In Spring, I want to be healthier more than ever – drink gallons of water, eat schools of fresh fish, and create beautiful light salads. Going for a run in the park is often my way of marking the arrival of spring, as watching the buds in the trees bursting into bloom is invigorating and gives me a dose of true happiness! Click MORE to see some of the shots from my Regent’s Park Spring shoot along with my 6 top tips for launching back into fitness!

We’re way past the historic remnants of ‘New Year’s Resolutions’, which means we’re through the toughest, longest, darkest part of the year. From here, nature gives you a bit of a lift to boost your training regime, by way of wonderful weather! Spring is a time when I feel rejuvenated, refreshed, and its a time for innovation, as well as a good mental and physical spring clean! Setting goals isn’t restricted to any particular time of year, so why not re-engage with your targets! Here are my top 6 tips to get things going again…

1) THINK SUSTAINABLE
Try not to think of the way you eat as a ‘diet’. I have found that diets are unsustainable, often unhealthy and ultimately fail. Eating healthily is the opposite to that. It’s not something you pursue on-and-off, but it’s a long term solution. This way when or if you ‘slip up’ you be less likely to give up, be despondent and realise that one or two meals/days of less-than-perfect eating won’t undermine your overall commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

2) RELAX ABOUT ‘WEIGHT LOSS’
If your end-goal is weight loss, then de-prioritise it; I’ve found that if you set realistic, specific goals which all involve healthy eating and regular fitness, then weight loss will come as an extra bonus! The ultimate goal is to be genuinely healthy, to see your body get stronger, and enjoy that wonderful feeling of achievement! Body-weight is merely a corollary of that.

3) BE REALISTIC:
If, like me, you love chocolate, then the likelihood is ZERO that you’ll one day wake up and decide never to have chocolate again, and stick to it. So instead, just be realistic and incorporate those treats into your mostly healthy eating. Switch to 80% dark chocolate, for example, as a healthier option, and just have a few squares in the evening along with a mint tea. Trying to be a monk won’t yield success!

4) TREAT YOURSELF:
Reaching your goals along the way deserves a little reward, whether it’s a delicious scoop of indulgent ice-cream during the week, or a relaxing sports massage after all your hard work in the gym. Perhaps a manicure or spa experience. Enjoy it, only after you’ve earned it. Those mini-targets are a great way to keep yourself pushing on from week to week!

5) SET MANAGEABLE GOALS: 
If you set unrealistic goals, you’re setting yourself up for rapid failure, will feel miserable and are statistically more likely to give up altogether. If you detest running, don’t force it, and instead do something else – bicycle, spin, row, cross train – go outdoors. Introduce more diverse activities into your everyday routine. Take the stairs at work instead of the lift. Mix it up to prevent boredom setting in!

6) DRINK GALLONS OF WATER!
Surely some ice cold water with a slice of lemon is the best drink to quench your thirst in these sunnier times? Water will totally transform your physical and mental state as well as progress your fitness goals. Read more on the on the benefits of staying hydrated here.

Hope that helps with a sprinkling of spring-time resolve for your fitness regime! Good luck! Faya x
