Hands up who is still feeling full!
Christmas Day has finished and now we are looking forward to the next big event of 2015…
NEW YEARS EVE 2015
Some of you may be heading back to work this week, but getting stressed about NYE should not be on your to do list… I’ve created a list of my top tips to get the ball rolling ready for the big night!
Right first things first:
#1 Have a breakfast to tackle the hangover
The best way to deal with over indulgence is to get some Asparagus in your diet.
Research to be published in the Journal of Food Science, Korean researchers found that extracts taken from the leaves and shoots of asparagus boosted levels of key enzymes that break down alcohol after heavy drinking!
So I recommend Poached Egg and Asparagus for Boxing Day!
#2 Get those 10,000 steps in
Wake up, chuck on those sweats (and if you’re still feeling festive your Christmas Jumper) and go out for a walk! Nothing too excessive you do not want to punish yourself. Grab your dog, mum, partner or headphones and just get the blood running and the calories burning. I cannot explain enough how important it is to do your 10,000 steps a day. Keeping slim was never so easy if you just keep moving.
While you are at work – make sure you head out in those lunch breaks this week. Walk to work. Walk around the office. Just keep moving. Sitting down is a sure fire way to keep the Christmas bulge longer than usual!
You can buy one of these off amazon and create the perfect silhouette for your little black dress. Wearing this on a day to day basis also helps your posture and helps curve your body in and out in all the right places.
Wear it under your snuggly wear while catching up with family or if you are in the office… under your workwear. Completely invisible to anyone but you… this is a must for getting ready for NYE
#4 Clean up your diet
You have approximately 6 days to nail this. If you need a little help get James Duigan book which contains a 14 day guide to a flat stomach. This should be able to guide you in the right direction in order to give you a head start into 2016
Sneak some left over turkey for some lean protein. It features a lot in this book and will save you pounds while losing pounds.
#5 Get some sexy high heels
Heels elevate you up, slim down your legs, make your butt perky and all over give you a slender and confident look. Black strap look heels are my favourite things to hit A/W15. Edgy, cool and stylish these are the perfect addition to your wardrobe for NYE!
On my radar are:
#6 Pre-order a box fitness goodies!

So those are my top tips! I hope you enjoy them. I am now off to get my 10,000 steps – while keeping on my stretchy leggings to keep my post Christmas day tummy at bay!
Bring it on 2016! I am ready for you!
