It just seems so out of reach for me

18th October 2019

I want to share my workout schedule with you today   I want to do this because I think it can often be intimidating to think about making some positive changes when you are worried about it all being a bit too much   It can seem so far out of reach, that you don’t […]

Why can’t I quit my ‘bad’ habits?

19th September 2019

Why do we procrastinate on making a positive change? Why can’t we give up the bad habits? Why do we still behave ‘badly’ despite KNOWING what we need to do, to get what we want to see (better energy, more confidence, better health, weight loss…?) There is a tonne of stuff going on around us in […]

I’ll start again on Monday

9th September 2019

Working in health and fitness, I think the most common phase I hear is…   ‘I’ll start again on Monday’   OR   ‘I’ll get back ‘on it’ on Monday’   (caveat…if it’s a bank holiday….I’ll start again on Tuesday..!)   I can’t tell you how much it pains me to hear this over and over […]

27th August 2019

It’s inevitable really….   Our lives are interwoven with so many others….   On top of that we have the mixture of work, kids, commitments, meetings and social engagements to juggle around   When are you ‘trying to be good’ it can be one thing after another that just ‘gets in the way’   Holiday’s, weddings, […]

Why I will NEVER look like a fitness model

1st August 2019

When it comes down to it Getting into ‘shape’ (whatever that really means) is bloody hard work You have to restrict your food (and probably weigh it out for each meal) You have to be able to train damn hard You will probably end up missing out on some social events It’s likely that you’ll find eating out […]

Hacks for weight loss

24th July 2019

I’m not always a big fan of ‘hacks’   It implies that you can just apply simple fixes to your life and perhaps paper over the cracks   Or if you’re into imagery, it might give you the image of someone hacking away with an axe of some sort….grisly!   But occasionally there is call […]
