You don’t have to ram it down their throats

13th October 2019

When you see someone spiralling in front of your eyes…(eating too much, drinking too much, becoming more sedentary and behaving in a way that doesn’t lead to good health)   ….it can be really hard to know what to do   Addressing it head on can be risky because you do not know how they […]

3rd October 2019

We were watching Robin Hood the other day (the new-ish one with Taron Egerton)   It’s pretty good if you fancy something to sink your teeth into (a twist on a classic tale!)   Anyhow there were a few good lines in the movie, but one really stuck out to me   Robin’s sidekick (although […]

Is the heat totally kicking your ass at the moment?

24th July 2018

Is the heat totally kicking your ass at the moment? It makes the thought of doing anything remotely sweaty, abhorrent! I think I’m taking about 3 extra showers a day (cold ones!) just to feel like a normal human ;-) Training in this heat, unless you have an air conditioned gym (and house) is harder […]

You expect too much

11th May 2018

  I’m guilty of this And I’m going to guess that you are too….. I expect FAR too much of myself And then I get frustrated and fed up when I’m not able to deliver on my expectations I began a few weeks ago to lower my expectations Not my standards (those are important to […]
