It's a new week - so let's get fired up and make this week a good one.
My aim for this week is of course EAT, rest, try and do as much as I can despite my migraines to keep myself busy and be around people with good vibes. As we want the whole package a healthy mind and a healthy body - both are equally important.
Plus I need to wrap up my book - which I am guilty of pushing back again because I have had yet more IDEAS on how to improve the outcome and have wanted to edit a little more. I have somehow managed to add an extra thirty pages onto the book through editing - not with any extra recipes but just making sure the text is perfect, the pictures are in place and the layout is on point.
It will all be worth it in the end - just CAN'T wait to see the finished product and I am TRULY hoping you all love it.
I had a lovely day with the family yesterday and it was very much needed, lots of fruit and lots of rice went down - of course. All you lovely's that follow me on Snapchat - @sophwardy , will have got bombarded with my nice cream and rice overload.
I also had Matthew trying 'nice' cream for the first time which I video'ed on Snapchat too, which was a success, I know he was sarky at first but as he says it's better than your dairy banana ice cream - so that's a massive positive because it's so good for you. Of course in my book you will find my fave 'nice' cream combo's and also additional ideas you can try yourself - and they are definitely worth a try!! You will be amazed.
We can start the Sophantastic buzz too when my book comes out and you all buy it ;) by hash tagging #Sophantastic when you try a recipe, post your picture on a social media outlet - I would simply LOVE to see you pictures and your feedback on the recipes I have created.
Good vibes ahead - make this week the best week you can possibly make it.
What to work on: Make and create positives out of every negative situation.
Love and peace to all xo
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
