The non-negotiable habits for better EVERYTHING

5th March 2020

I often get asked for the ONE thing that will make the difference in weight-loss   The thing to understand and ACCEPT is that there is no ONE THING that I can tell you   There are no magic fixes   There are no weight-loss secrets   Fundamentally there are just a set of BORING […]

What to do if you don’t have time to exercise…

29th January 2020

It’s a bit of a fallacy that we have to blast our exercise out in one fell swoop   This might sometimes feel more efficient….   But in reality, it’s not always going to be possible   With all of the balls that you are juggling (family, social life, kids hobbies, work, pets, parents etc)….. […]
