When it comes to dieting and exercising there is so much stress around what is the correct approach?! The answer is there is no set way for everyone. We are all human but we are all different. What works for me may or may not work for you. But what does work for all of us is applying the same principles to our routines. 

Yushoi conducted a survey into the credit/debit approach to exercise and how people exercise to allow themselves treats. We all have our favourite foods that we push hard to earn when we are in the gym. This is ultimately that beginning of finding your own equilibrium. Set aside stress and anxiety when approaching exercise. Don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself, just think about making balanced choices. What do I mean? Well… if you can get your 4/5 workouts in one week then don’t neglect your body of fuel to re-fuel yourself. If you can’t get to the gym at all one week (like me this week) then try not to eat as if you were getting a full week’s exercise. It can be thought of very simply: What goes in + volume of exercise = weight gained or lost. 

Weight gaining/losing is something I don’t like talking about because it shouldn’t be a focus point. Your body as it is great – if you want to exercise then do it for YOU not for any silly weight loss fad. I personally exercise for my mind – physical happiness for me comes from mental happiness. I used to be obsessed with stereotypes and want to be ‘massive’ but half those people are taking all sorts of damaging enhancing pills that are only a short-term fix. Think about why you want to exercise as it will also ensure you are doing the correct exercises that will achieve the goals you set yourself.

I personally have a VERY sweet tooth. I will cover my cereal in honey, have a cookie after lunch and often a brownie after dinner – AND if there is a choice milkshake up for grabs – I’m in! I am aware these foods are not packed with fibre, vitamins and protein – so this is where my credit/debit approach to exercise comes into play. On my days off exercise I will cut back to 1/2 of the above and then on days I exercise I won’t really think too much about my intake. Because when I am at the gym I work out full-on with minimal rest (20secs max between sets) for at least an hour. This mentality and practise doesn’t make me lose weight, it doesn’t make me MASSIVE but it keeps my body in relatively good shape and more importantly it keeps me happy.

I also include Yushoi to balance out my diet, as a guilt free snack when I am craving something tasty. Packed full of the good stuff (they’re 72% pea or lentil!), while tasting amazing, it powers me through. Want to take balance with diet /exercise to the next level? Yushoi have begun a Pea-lates and Pinot class, where you can enjoy wine and snacks, whilst doing a Pilates class – now how’s that for balance!

GINGER FAKE TANS!!

A ginger getting a fake tan… sounding like a recipe for disaster? Sure as hell didn’t think I would be trying out any fake-tan product in my pale lifetime. Plus……

A ginger getting a fake tan… sounding like a recipe for disaster? Sure as hell didn’t think I would be trying out any fake-tan product in my pale lifetime. Plus… the thought of smelling like a biscuit going to bed and waking up looking as orange as my hair was usually enough to put me off. After-all, fake tan is just for girls right? NOPE. I have actually found a tanning product for men that you can build up as much or as little as you like. The few comments I have had since using the Tan Mist have included: “have you been away recently?”, “Ollie you’re looking brown mate”, “how come you’re looking all bronzed?”. The answer is James Read’s Hydra Tan Mist for Men.

I am writing this after using the Tan Mist for 3 weeks on and off. I wanted this to be as accurate as possible, and to check I didn’t turn into a giant orange. So after nearly a month of using the Tan Mist, I am genuinely amazed at how good it is. You can be as heavy/light handed with it as you like, but the beauty of the Tan Mist is it’s designed to be used over time, so it’s easy to tailor a tan that suits your skin tone. I use roughly 4-6 pumps per use, 3 days per week and that has been enough to take the ghostly pale colour away this winter. The Tan Mist currently costs £20 for a 100ml bottle, which means it’s airline carry-on friendly, and the cost amounts to the same as a few coffees – not bad for some winter sun!

How do you use the Tan Mist ByOllieB?

  1. Spray the mist away from you once to clear the nozzle.
  2. Hold the bottle a little closer than arms distance, and slightly above from your face – ensuring the nozzle is pointed at your face (duh! I may have experienced side-spray during my first use, whoops). Eyes closed and…
  3. Spray once from above down the centre of the face.
  4. Spray once straight on towards the centre of the face.
  5. Spray once from above left (to cover the left side).
  6. Spray once from above right (to cover the right side).
  7. Spray the front and rear of your neck – once each.
  8. Leave to dry for a few minutes.
  9. As you were chaps.

James Read recommends: “Hold the nozzle at arm’s length from the face. Spray evenly in downward motions, working from left to right. Lift chin and spritz onto the neck and under the chin.  Remember to spray the back of your neck. Allow a minute or two to dry. Apply post-shave for a cooling effect or pre-shave for a spray and go tan” (www.jamesreadtan.com).

And that’s it – you’re on your way a cheeky bronzed tint. It takes a few hours to work so be patient and don’t spray extra amounts on-top thinking it hasn’t worked. Go easy on your first attempt following the steps above, if it’s too light or you want to see a bigger change then repeat the steps above twice a day until you are happy. As the Hydra Mist is a water-based product the more you wash your face, the quicker the bronzed look will be removed so keep that balance in mind.

Think of James Read’s Hydra Tan Mist as a little life hack to a cheeky tan. If you haven’t tanned before (like me) or tan regularly it’s worth giving it a try. One of my newfound grooming secrets – that’s not such a secret anymore! 3-4 weeks of use and I have only used 20% of the bottle too while maintaining a light bronze tint. That works out at less than £1.00 per week. Great results for a low price – that’s my kind of grooming product.

Something that I wanted to touch upon is the importance of mental wellbeing. Something that is equally important to your physical wellbeing but easily overlooked and manipulated within our modern, social media dominant world.

Mental welfare has a stronger link to physical welfare than you may realise. The power of endorphins is underestimated. If you are able to maintain regular exercise throughout your week your mind will be healthier and happier – therefore achieving a balanced lifestyle. It’s a simple equation but one that people tend to have their own personal battle with. I’m not suggesting you exhaust yourself trying out an unachievable and unrealistic fitness plan, but try making a do-able plan. Since doing this myself my energy levels have gone up and I feel more present/positive as a person. Take 10 minutes this weekend, write yourself up an achievable plan to get yourself mobile for one hour a day. Getting your heart rate up and keeping active will protect both your mental and physical health – one action = two positive outcomes and a balanced lifestyle.

Social media has the ability to influence our mental wellbeing too. You are reading this because you enjoy the idea and medium of online content sharing (thank you). But it’s important that you follow and read things that spark those positive vibes. The internet has turned into a place of ‘who can shout the loudest’ which as a blogger/creator/whatever you want to call me, can be heavy on the mental welfare. Personally, I have had a tough few months transitioning out of the honeymoon phase of starting up in the social media world. If you feel like you are being out-done on your social media presence, you doubt yourself, you’re doubting your creative ability or yourself as a person. Stop. Focus on you.

Something I have learned the hard way is to look after yourself as well as those around you. Do you, be you and trust you. It’s a fast-paced, manic world out there. Stop worrying about other people and stop comparing yourself to those heavily face-tuned accounts. Find something that makes you happy and share it, the right people will engage with it. Those that don’t but still follow you are still interested otherwise they would have unfollowed you. Let’s look after each other across these platforms, there’s enough international negativity going on, let’s keep social media positive and protected. Positivity costs nothing but protects your balanced mental welfare.

Aside from exercise and online opinions, your diet will hugely impact your mental balance & wellbeing. If you are overloading your system with caffeine/alcohol and eating a nutrient deficient diet you are depriving your mental wellbeing of endorphins. You are then naturally more susceptible to be stressed, get angry and feel negative. Sugar can give your mind ‘spikes’ of quick energy and then heavy crashes which contributes to poor mental wellbeing. Try swapping out sugary snacks for a healthier alternative like ‘Yushoi’ packed full of goodness, which is high in fiber, helping you maintain healthy blood sugar levels. A downward mental spiral has to start somewhere. So take the right steps upwards and away from that to maintain a healthy balance. Surround yourself with people that inspire you, do one thing a day that scares you, try something new each day, go the extra mile when at the checkout and wish someone a lovely day as you walk away and most importantly, remember what you already have; family, friends, qualifications, phones, cameras and even internet access. To be able to have read this you are already in the top 51% of the world’s population. 49% of our world’s population is currently offline.

The past few weeks have been some of the most exciting weeks for ‘ByOllieB’, from walking the red carpets at ‘London Fashion Week’, to launching new collaborative adventures for the upcoming months. With everything being so fast paced it’s been important to not neglect those close to me as they are my constant and my support. At times it can seem easy to get excited about a new collaboration and dive into it head first – taking everything in its wake for granted. Finding balance within the long hours I work is essential for my own sanity, as well as looking after those special relationships.

This evolving journey that ‘ByOllieB’ is on is a super exciting one, and it’s getting more exciting every week. Keeping family and friends on this journey is key to maintaining drive and inspiration for my content producing. I am my worst critic and always strive to produce better content every day. The feedback those closest give to me is the feedback that matters most, they will tell you how it is – keep you focused and your feet on the ground.

London is such a fast paced environment to be engulfed in, days turn into weeks, weeks into months and before we know it it’s time choose our Christmas tree (sorry for saying the C word in October…). That barrier of city life can be overcome by some simple time management, something I have struggled with in the past but am improving as I learn more about the industry I have found myself working around the clock in. Everything from those morning emails, afternoon meetings, blog writing then evening events – it’s all in a day’s work. I have one of the best jobs in the world for sure but it is demanding. Maintaining excellent time management is essential for me to separate myself from my work at times and focus on my family and friends.

As the business grows so does my activity and list of things-to-do. But taking a step back and putting myself more on a 9-5 working schedule has been essential. Of course, that isn’t always possible when working freelance, sometimes sacrifices need to be made to ensure the landlord gets paid. But making time to nurture those personal relationships protects my mental welfare and keeps me focused on my professional goals & achievements.

While maintaining the perfect balance between working and personal hours is on-going, I am pushing the same mentality into my work ethos. As I develop ‘ByOllieB’ to the reach the next level I need to maintain balance between clients, sector progression and what snacks I have in my bag! Ensuring I represent fashion, travel, and lifestyle equally. Keeping a variety of uploaded content keeps the face of ByOllieB’s brand balanced. I want to deliver to you a balanced set of high-quality content to inspire your fashion choices, eating habits, holiday plans, and lifestyle choices. The first step is to swap out that chocolate bar for a delicious bag of Yushoi – fuel your body the right way. A healthy body fuels a healthy mind. Yushoi went down well in the studio with the band when producing a music video earlier this month! Feeling those autumn vibes? Give Yushoi’s newest flavour ‘Barbecue’ a try – mouth-wateringly delicious, and… it’s actually healthy. A real life. Healthy. Tasty. Snack.
