Tune in. Eat right, train right for your body

Sophia McDermott Drysdale  FIT(39).jpg

People who don’t know me assume that I train for endless hours a day. In truth I am a single mum who spends most of her time juggle kids, teaching classes and sitting in front of a computer writing. I write for health and fitness magazines and I write personalized plans for people who want to look, feel and perform better. So I don’t workout all day, every day. I can’t. Over the years I have figure out what works for my body, but as a trainer and a coach i have learned a lot about what works for women bodies too.

The key to staying in shape is to train right and eat right. But not only that, its about managing stress and sleeping right too. Optimal health is like baking a cake. You need to factor in everything (all the ingredients) to get the right recipe to make the perfect cake. If one of the ingredients is not right, such as not enough sleep, or not the right amount of food at the right time, then the cake won't turn out right.

The first step is to start listening to your body, so ditch those calorie counters and start actually tuning in to your body. The body is the most amazing machine that is constantly telling you want it need for optimal health. If you are hungry then eat. Stop eating when you are feeling full, no matter how much food is left on your plate. If you are tired, rest. Take note of the difference between true fatigue and laziness. Take note of how you feel after eating certain foods? Do you feel bloated and lethargic? Or do you feel energized and full of vitality?

Tuning in is the 1st step but if anyone would like a little extra guidance feel free to check out my personal plans here or email me at sophia@sophiaFIT.com and I can email you the plan outlines.

Fit Mums!

Sophia mcdermott drysdale fit .2.jpg

One of my missions is to help spread the idea that just because you are a mum, that doesn’t mean that the sexy fit women before babies is a thing of the past. Motherhood is by far the most challenging thing you’ll ever do since it is never ending - but oh so rewarding. But it is so easy to put our kids first and leave ourselves to the last. Before we know it we are tired, out of shape and no longer doing the things that we enjoyed before babies. It is all about creating that balance. But most certainly, the most import factor is your health because if you don’t have your healthy, you don’t really have anything. No mater how busy us mums are…. we must make time for ourselves to have a workout a few times a week. Get out and go for a power walk, hit the gym or do one of my live workouts on twitch while bubba is bouncing in the bassinet. you can log into view my workouts here: www.twitch.tv/sophiafit We can do this and fin time for one hour in the day for US!!!!

Hydration Station

Did you know that by weight, adult bodies are made up of between 50-65% water with the brain and heart comprised of approximately 73% water, and the lungs 83% water. 64% of the skin is water, muscles and kidneys are at roughly 79% and surprisingly even our adult bones are around 31%!! Need I say more?

Hydration is probably the most underestimated nutrient when it comes to weight loss! Drinking plenty of water really is one of the easiest steps you can take to set yourself up for a healthier body and mind!!

The thing about hydration is, you don’t need to wait until you are thirsty! You should be aiming to drink water consistently throughout the day. The amount you should consume depends on a number of factors, such as your body type, your activity levels and the climate but as a general rule I recommend drinking between 2 - 4 litres a day! Yes I know that sounds like a lot but trust me it is doable! Ensure you always carry a water bottle with you and if you find water boring, add some flavour by adding lemon or berries to your water! And trust me in now time you will be easily smashing 3 litres a day!

The benefits you will reap from increasing your daily intake of water will surprise you!

Improves Digestive Function
Water plays a big role in your body’s removal of waste through the digestive tract and your digestive tract needs water to function properly! Therefore, if your body isn’t receive a sufficient amount of water it can lead to chronic constipation!

Helps with Mid-Day Fatigue
Fatigue and tiredness is a common effect from dehydration and to make things worse most people reach for a caffeinated drink such as coffee which yes will keep you awake but as it’s a mild diuretic this will remove water from your body making the situation worse!

Mood Enhancer
Surprising but very true! Dehydration affects your overall mood as when your body is thirty it is in a state of shortage and won’t run effectively therefore making you crankier and moodier! Hydration = positive vibes!

I could go on for days about all the benefits but hopefully the ones above give you a little insight into how amazing water really is!

Next Lifestyle Camp up and running - grab your spot!!

Sophia McDdermott Drysdale FIT

This isn't just a BJJ camp (although there is 2 hours of technique and training every morning), it is about all the aspects that are important in creating a fabulous and healthy lifestyle. This camp includes healthy food/nutrition, movement with yoga and sculpting workouts and the mental aspect where I have a holistic facilitator who does the guided meditations and Warrior Within workshops. This camp will  be covering the theme of eliminating negative self talk which is such a big thing to  hold us back from getting what we want in life. 

The best thing about the camps though is the sisterhood and the lifelong friendships that are created to BJJ. This will be my 6th camp and a wonderful sisterhood that has come about from these. 

Here is a link that has loads of info: there is a PDF you can download.
