Tonight is the spookiest of all nights (except friday 13th…..if you believe in that sort of thing!) Are you enticing trick treaters with your carved pumpkin Or will you be turning all of the lights off and pretending that you are not home (whilst nomming all of the candy that you bought in secret) Often […]

Not the chicken variety

Sunday is a GREAT day for reflection A day for reflecting on how BADLY your diet went last week A day for feeling ashamed of how much junk you ate (whilst finishing off the biscuits) A day for laying on the sofa whilst feeling bad about not working out (again) this week A day for […]

You can’t think yourself thin I’m sure that you’ve heard this expression before Despite weight loss being about MORE than exercise and food You can go too far in the other direction You can make it all about theory …..and never get started on the practical Mindset is VALUABLE Thinking and being mindful is VALUABLE […]

How do you release negative energy?

27th October 2017

I know how I USED to release negative energy And you may be surprised at this….

Challenge your direction

Decisions, decisions

The choice to take a stand against feeling unhappy…is one […]

Why not try it my way

22nd October 2017

The day of rest Sunday is typically the day of rest The day of eating The day of ‘slothing’ around And the day of panicking that you blew your diet and have to start dieting again tomorrow! Are you familiar with this cycle? Many many people today will be running through the rigmarole of this […]

D.E.N.I.A.L

21st October 2017

Denial is a dangerous state to be in Someone once told me that denial had a handy acronym to keep it clear in your mind Don’t Even Notice I Am Lying It’s quite apt, don’t you think? I’ve certainly been in denial But I face the truth now Because I want a life where I […]
