In Norwegian, you don’t refer to your romantic partner as a “boyfriend” or “girlfriend”. You say “kjæreste”, which is gender neutral and literally translates to “the dearest”.

there we go. problem solved. we now speak norwegian.

So what is the plateau? 

  • The plateau is the point in your fitness journey where you’re working out and your results are starting to slow down and this can be the point in your journey where you start to lose motivation, it’s natural for you to feel like that, but you can do this! 

So what can you do to help get yourself back on your journey? 

  1. Change -  Change is so important in your fitness journey. If you’re doing the same workouts over and over again, your body is starting to get used to it and you’re working out the same muscles over and over again. Try something new, do something different, challenge yourself a bit.  There are lots of different workouts on my blog workoutworkitgirl
  2. Try HIIT workouts - These work outs are brilliant, they are short but intense workouts and can give some good results as they make your body work hard! Click here for HIIT workouts
  3. Don’t give up - Now I know that is easier said than done, because you’re feeling like you’re not getting anywhere and you start to think, oh I’m never going to lose weight, you will, you will get there but giving up isn’t the answer for you. 
  4. Do different types of cardio workouts - If you’re doing the same cardio (for example running) then like I said earlier, you’re working out the same muscles every time, instead swap it around a little bit, so run one week and then do things like cycling the next. Click here for cardio tips
  5. Try different foods - This can really help as your body starts to get used to the foods you’re eating so change it up a little bit, maybe try to get your protein from a different source, instead of having chicken and getting your protein that way, maybe try to have some salmon or tuna or kidney beans! 
  6. Start strength training - Using weights can really help you to build muscle but also gives your metabolism a boost, it’s a win win situation! Click here for tips for lifting
  7. Don’t become obsessed with losing weight - This is a tough one because when you want something so badly you tend to focus on the long term goals of your journey. So instead try to make smaller goals for yourself, for example, when you get up in the morning, say to yourself, I’m going to aim for 30 minutes of cardio (your choice) and then have a lovely post workout meal (click here for good post workout meals)
  8. Remind yourself of how important rest days are - Your body is incredible, it needs a chance to rest and repair the muscles you’ve been working out. If you push your body too much it can lead to injury, so please rest, it will not effect your progress! Click here for understanding when it’s best to rest.
  9. Get more sleep - Making sure that you’re getting enough sleep is vital in your fitness journey, so make sure that you’re getting a minimum of around 7 hours sleep. Why is sleep important? Well if you don’t get enough you’re more likely to have what might be classed as unhealthy cravings (everything in moderation) you are likely to have higher anxiety levels, you’re at higher risk of things like depressions, heart disease, diabetes, injury and also hypertension. 
  10. Understand what your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is - This is really important simply because you are then able to see how many calories you would burn if you just stayed in bed all day (sounds like bliss to me - anyway back to reality) do not eat less than your BMR, this is the number of calories your body will need to function normally. Understanding calories calories is important, click here for info on calories. 
  11. Drink more water - Your water bottle should be your best friend, water flushes out toxins from your body, hydrates you. Often when we feel hungry it can actually mean we are thirsty. 
  12. Eat metabolism boosting foods - Adding into your meals things like water, chilli peppers, green tea, coffee, red beans, garlic, raspberries, strawberries, broccoli  whole grains and lentils are all foods that can boost your metabolism naturally! 
  13. DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST - If you think oh I’ll be okay and go without breakfast, no no no no no, stop right there, breakfast is so important, by eating breakfast, you wake up your metabolism to start a new day, don’t skip it, or any meal for that matter. 

I believe in you!

Lots of love

#SGYOGAGA Day 01: Tree Pose (Vrksasana)

Happy September everyone, and today we kick start the #SGYOGAGA challenge! Today we visit the good ol’ tree pose, so please feel free to come into any variation of tree pose that you want. Unleash your creativity, and do what feels good for you!

1⃣ Come into mountain pose (Tadasana), and lean your weight on to your right leg. Using your left hand, place your left foot on to your right inner thigh or calf.

2⃣ Engage your standing leg and lengthen your tailbone towards the ground. Firmly press your left foot against your right inner thigh/calf, and resist by engaging your outer right thigh.

3⃣ Softly gaze at a point in front of you, and you can either place your hands in prayer, or come into any hand variation that you would like.

4⃣ Step back to Tadasana with an exhalation, and alternate sides.

Remember to follow the hosts (@vivianography, @supyogasingapore, @jasminetayoga) and the sponsors (@sadhanasanctuaryyogastudio, @vivreactivewear, @hadalabosg, @beautycleanse, @intheloopsg), and have lots of fun on the mat.

Have a lovely Monday ahead of you, namaste! :>
