Joe wicks 30 day kick start plan review by duffythewriter

Easy to read, fantastic tasty recipes and a positive vibe. The Body Coach is here to kick off 2021 with the right mindset and a happier (and smaller) tummy!

I am usually the last one to buy into a ‘New Year New Me!’ mindset and if 2020 has taught me anything, it’s that putting too much pressure on yourself simply ends up a bad time all around. However, when I saw the nations PE teacher had a 30-day kick start plan I was keen to read it. Why? I can only say that Joe Wicks seems like a bloomin nice, down to earth bloke. Quite unlike some of some other health guru’s out there!

All of the recipes look as simple and just as tasty as a Hello Fresh meal and meals and snacks I would happily tuck into. Freshly baked fish, tasty curries, and the Elvis pancakes speak for themselves.

The 30 Day Kick Start Plan is about good nutrition and exercise that suits you for both body and mind. It all starts with simple steps which then form a habit and gets you out of your ‘iso’ rut.

I am that person that immediately feels obligated and backed into a corner when I start to follow a new diet or exercise plan. Then my old friend self-sabotage usually creeps in week two. However, whilst reading this book I actually felt I was chatting to a mate down the pub who wanted to partner up and be just a little better.

That’s achievable, right?

There is no chance I’ll suddenly become this thin, glowing woman with the core strength of a Ninja, but I am feeling pretty confident that next month me is going to be a little healthier than this month me. I’ve decided to attempt the below small steps:-

  • First and foremost, I will not beat myself up if I miss a goal, or snooze the alarm, as long as I get back into it the next day, it’s ok
  • I’m going to plan my meals for the week and prep where I can
  • No takeaways in Jan (unless we go back into lockdown in which case all cards are then off the table)
  • I am going to do an online workout twice a week and ensure I get out for a decent walk every day
  • No booze midweek
  • Fewer carbs
  • Try some of the Joe Wicks recipes and get them into my regular meal rotation
  • Get back into using my Calm app each morning before starting the day
