National Curry Week
With National Curry Week fast approaching, (week commencing 23rd November 2009) there’s never been a better excuse to reach for a menu and treat yourself to the most popular Great British takeaway!
And this year Harpers Fitness at is giving you an excuse not to worry about piling on the pounds… With approximately 1,300 calories in the nations favourite chicken tikka massala, your waistline will soon suffer if you’re not careful, which is why Harpers are offering a FREE one day guest pass, which you can use at any Harpers facilities, as well as some top tips from their team of fitness and health experts, which will help you to fight the flab and beat the bulge!
- Most people start a new exercise programme with vigour but become easily bored when they don’t see instant results and give up before they’ve really tried. If you believe you’re capable of losing weight, toning up and getting fitter then you’ll easily achieve your goal.
- Envisage yourself as a healthy and active person and your gym sessions will soon fly by. You will train your mind to take into account your growing fitness and energy levels rather than concentrating on the scales.
- Eating six small meals daily will help keep your metabolic rate elevated and cravings at bay. Each portion should contain lots of protein and brightly coloured vegetables.
- Most importantly, have fun. Working out at the gym with friends or joining a running club not only offers support and motivation but it’s social. No point in getting the bikini body for summer and not being able to show it off!
Exercising helps relieve cravings thanks to stimulating the release of our ‘happy hormones’ so there’s no reason why you can’t reward yourself at the end of the week with a takeaway after you’ve put in all the hard work at the gym. So, when National Curry Week approaches this year, you too can celebrate with the nation, at Harpers Fitness, without having to worry about squeezing into Springs hottest upcoming trends!
