Last weekend I spent my time with an amazing group of women in a wonderful location near the Lake District on our very first reTREAT. I think it’s safe to say the weekend was an absolute success, we ate amazing healthy food which just happened to include lots of chocolate, and talked about all kinds…

Fancy a two week meal plan?

  • #wholeheartedlyhealthybootcamp day 6 challenge is to try a new recipe so I made a chickpea, cauliflower and cashew curry inspired by an @nigellalawson recipe from Simply Nigella along with some gluten free flatbreads inspired by some we made at the retreat last week. So delicious! .

  • WHOLEHEARTEDLY HEALTHY BOOTCAMP CHALLENGE DAY 6 💘 
Today's challenge is to try a new recipe! .
Pretty straight forward this one, just get cooking! It can be easy to fall into a rut cooking the same meals, and although I think there can be benefits to healthy meals 'on repeat' it can be really nice to try a new recipe at least once a week.

  • WHOLEHEARTEDLY HEALTHY BOOTCAMP CHALLENGE DAY 5 💘 
Today's challenge is to spend time doing something that brings you joy!
.
How often do you actively do something that lights up your heart inside? Today I want you to do just that, because believe me when I say, you deserve it. Spending time doing something that brings you joy can have crossovers with self care, but there is a subtle difference and I'd love for you to explore that today. Really try and listen to what your heart wants rather than worrying about being judged, there is no wrong or right here 🌟 .
I'd love to know what brings you joy, and I'm looking forward to exploring this myself today! #wholeheartedlyhealthybootcamp!

  • WHOLEHEARTEDLY HEALTHY BOOTCAMP CHALLENGE DAY 4 💘 
Today's challenge is to write your treat smart list (and maybe even enjoy a treat smart treat!)
.
Being treat smart is about being aware of the foods you'd give a 10/10 so that when you have the opportunity to eat something indulgent or less healthy, that is just 'meh' you can pass it up knowing you can eat something you really love guilt free. Make sure you enjoy your treat smart foods mindfully - enjoy every single bite!
.
I'd love to know what makes your treat smart list (mine includes Starbucks cinnamon rolls, anything salted caramel or chocolate peanut butter, good bread and butter or pastries 😍Share yours! #wholeheartedlyhealthybootcamp!

  • WHOLEHEARTEDLY HEALTHY BOOTCAMP CHALLENGE DAY 3 💘 
Today's challenge is to try a different form of exercise / or if you don't usually exercise, to get active in some way. .
I'll be totally honest, exercise has been a struggle for me recently. Fitting it in and then prioritising it over the huge to do list of tasks all pulling at my time makes it hard. However I feel freaking AMAZING when I do get active and that's what I'm going to use to help motivate me today. Trying something different can keep exercise interesting whilst also benefiting your body in new ways. If you're stuck for ideas think YouTube videos, hula hooping, walking somewhere new, yoga, pilates etc. There's always going to be something different to explore.

  • WHOLEHEARTEDLY HEALTHY BOOTCAMP CHALLENGE DAY 2 💘 
Today's challenge is to create your self care plan, or if not the plan, to at least think about or do something around self care today! It's really easy to put everything and everyone else before yourself, forgetting the fact that when your needs aren't being met you can't support those people closest to you at your 100%. Self care is also super important for your mental wellbeing and sense of self too. So do something for yourself today, and 🌟  if you do the self care plan I've emailed to those signed up for the challenge! 
Don't forget to keep on filling in your tracking sheet too. Have a great day lovelies! #wholeheartedlyhealthybootcamp .
