My secret tip for healthy living and getting your glow on

 
Hello! I hope April has started off well for you. Now that we are 3 months into the year, how are you doing with your health, fitness and wellbeing goals? I'm often asked lots of questions about healthy living and wellbeing from blog readers and clients, one of which is how to keep making healthy choices over the long term. This is one of my best secret tips and it's actually pretty simple.

You have a choice.

No one is forcing you to skip the gym, eat the cake or sit on the sofa with a tube of Pringles. Make the things you do a choice, even the 'bad' ones, and you are empowering yourself rather than disempowering yourself. Even if that choice is not a positive one, getting used to thinking about things in terms of choices you are making, instead of something that is put upon you, can start and change your habits. If things become a choice you make, you can make a choice to go to the gym today, to plan your meals on a Sunday, to eat the veggies. If you want to have a slice of cake, make it an empowered choice! This way you don't feel guilty or like you've 'fucked up' - a feeling which can often lead to eating more and feeling crap. 

Even if you can't change everything, start and focus on the choices you can make, like trying a green smoothie for example! 

Speaking of which, I think now is a time that a lot of us are ready to eat more fresh foods and get that healthy glow, which is why I'm kicking off a little green smoothie challenge!

Read on for all the info, your FREE green smoothie guide, a recipe for carrot, date and walnut muffins, what's in season now, your healthy living prompts and much more. Have a wonderful April!
 

The 12 Weeks to Feeling Fabulous Course is back! 


At the beginning of May I'll be kicking off another round of the 12 Weeks to Feeling Fabulous Course that will leave you feeling like a million dollars at the end of it. See what this fabulous lady that finished the course last month had to say...
'When I started the course I was only a 2 on the fabulous scale, now I feel like an 8,
I've also lost 12lbs!

I've learnt that my issues with food go deeper than I thought but I also feel for the first time that this is something I can tackle. I've loved the smoothies, meal planing and cooking from scratch and I will definitely keep this up. I've also learnt to be kinder to myself and that a bad meal, day, whatever, doesn't mean I've failed and it's all a learning curve.

This has made a huge difference to my mind set and has contributed to the knowledge that I've got this.'
The course will be starting on Monday 5th May with the first email going out on Friday 2nd May. You can find out all the details of the course here.

If you are fed up of the fad diet bullshit and feel ready to sort out your health and wellbeing once and for all, this is the course for you!

14 days, 14 Green smoothies, are you up for the challenge?


It's spring, the sun is shining, er hopefully, and while I'm not thinking about a summer spent in bikinis and little shorts (hello baby bump!)  you might be. Whether you have a summer holiday coming up, or another special occasion you'd like to feel your best for, treating your body to fresher foods is the way to feel great, look good and get that glow.

Over the past few years I've discovered one of the best ways to do that is with green smoothies! They are healthy, but can taste almost sinfully delicious. 

To help us all get into a green smoothie habit, I'm kicking off a 14 day green smoothie challenge starting on Monday 7th April running until Easter Sunday. You don't have to have one every single day, but it would be great if you could even just try a green smoothie during this time. You'll find all the details, plus 10 great green smoothie recipes in your FREE Green smoothie guide, just click the link below to download.

Don't forget to share pictures of your green smoothies on social media using the hashtag #KHGSgreensmoothiechal and tag me @lauraagarwilson too!
