Goals for healthy eating & drinking 🍜


Sooo much of eating healthy is in the planning! How much & how healthily you prep shapes exactly what’s going to be on your plate all week long.

1. Write a (healthy) shopping list every week to limit the spontaneous treats

2. Find 2 high protein ingredients to always stay stocked up on. Could be chickpeas & red lentils

3. Meal prep every Sunday for the week ahead

4. Find a new recipe every week

5. Decide on a ‘core’ healthy meal to cook every week. My favourite is Mediterranean Roasted Veg with chickpeas

6. Have at least 1 meat-free day per week

7. Swap sodas and fizzy drinks for flavoured waters

8.Cut down on dairy. Try buying one plant-based sub at a time

9. Include vegetables with every lunch & dinner. Serve as sides if not in a recipe

10. Eat the rainbow! Look for whole foods which aren’t just green

11. Eat fruit everyday - smoothies are great for boosting your intake.

12. Keep kitchen space clean & tidy. Try to clean up as you go along - tidy space, tidy mind

13. Try some of these healthy tips for eating out!



Goals for amazing workouts 💪🏼


The big mindset shift for me was thinking beyond what I can achieve in a month. What's important is creating habits so I can also enjoy the days, weeks & months that come after the initial boost of motivation.


14. Every Sunday, plan your workouts for the week

15. Work with a personal trainer to develop a personalised fitness regime

16. Join a gym or set up one at home

17. Keep home workout space tidy & easily accessible

18. Set realistic fitness goals - ones you can sustain and build on

19. Invest in comfy running shoes

20. Aim for at least 10,000 steps a day

21. Try new exercises or start working out with a friend

22. Stretch more after workouts. Write down a few stretches you can do

23. Start running. Perhaps set a goal to run a 10K

24. Declutter your social media for people who make you feel less good about yourself. Remember: No two fitness journeys are the same.

25. Follow a personalised training plan

26. Take progress pictures every 2 months

27. Reward your achievements! New gym gear’s a great shout

Goals for a healthy lifestyle 💃


Great habits should support every part of your life, not just the gym. Building a healthy, active & satisfying lifestyle boosts your workout mindset too, so it’s a win-win on both fronts.

28. Set phone reminders to move at least once per day

29. Get 7-9 hours sleep per night. And get up before 10am on weekends

30. Be mindful of screentime. Especially late evenings when you’re winding down

31. Don’t take work home with you – de-stress when the day’s done

32. If you have a garden, try growing vegetables

33. Make outdoor plans on weekends

34. Surround yourself with positive & active friends

35. No smoking

36. Take up that sport or class you’ve always wanted to

37. Explore beyond your local area, step #20 says thanks

38. Start a new hobby

39. Write a to-do list every morning

40. Read a book every month

41. Start listening to podcasts that inspire or interest you

Goals that last more than one month 📆

42. Remember you’re human: big change doesn’t happen overnight
