We all want to be healthy and fit in our life. But once we leave the gym, there are many things which can cause us to go downhill. Whether it’s that snack cupboard at home or that glass of gin, it can put our health at risk. Therefore, here are some items every health and fitness fanatic needs to carry in their bag so that they don’t make errors!
A step counter
It’s so important to make sure we are getting active in our daily life. And this starts with walking enough in the day. Despite it being recommended that people walk 10,000 steps a day, most people only do half that amount! After all, we end up sitting around for far too long during the day. To ensure you keep track of how many steps you have walked, you should get a step counter. You can easily get some watches which double up as a step counter. Or you can even download an app on your phone which will count how many steps you have done. You will be surprised how much your health will improve by walking more every day.
A vape pen
When people go out on the town, it’s easy to end up having a cigarette with friends. However, it could be damaging your health if you do this regularly. For one thing, cigarettes increase insulin resistance, so it's harder to work off that fat. And they can increase your heart rate and cause poor circulation. Therefore, your workouts might be in vain. To ensure you are not tempted on a night out, you should carry a vape pen with you. Vaping is a great way to burn off some steam without causing damage to your health. Therefore, you can use your vape pen to ensure you don’t go for a cigarette. You can find some vape pens online; visit the Shoreditch website and similar sites to find one that’s right for you!
A calorie counter
The grocery store leads to many errors for health and fitness fanatics. Health goes out the window with so many delicious food options on display. To ensure you don’t make mistakes, you need a calorie counter with you. Before you add any food to your basket, you can add it on there, so that you can check that it won’t take you over the recommended calorie limit. And if you have time, you should make a list of recipes before you go out. Just make sure you stick to that list of food once you have reached the supermarket!
A full water bottle
When we are out, it can be tempting to pick up a coffee. After all, the delicious options can be so appealing, especially at this time of the year! But you need to ensure you take a full bottle of water with you to drink to stop you buying coffee. After all, some coffee options can have around 500 calories! Just check out how many calories are in these Starbucks drinks! And carrying around a bottle of water will help you to reach the necessary goal for the day. After all, so many people don’t have the recommended daily amount of water.
Hopefully, these items will stop you making errors you will live to regret!
