How badly do you want to survive?

3rd March 2015

Survival in the wild is not all that different to surviving in life I watched that Bear Grylls programme the other day where he is teaching celebrities how to survive in the wild Some of them are pretty useless But I know I would be almost equally as bad I hate creepy crawlies I run […]

13th February 2015

I’ve heard this a lot recently… ‘I just want to reach ‘x’ weight and I’ll be happy’ OR ‘The numbers on the scales just aren’t going down…’ When I hear my clients saying this to me, it makes me feel sad And not because it appears that they are not making progress But because they […]

Green Vegetables, love them or hate them, we need them!

24th January 2015

Do you actually like green vegetables? Eat your greens, that’s all we hear when we are young right. My memory of vegetables was mushy, yucky, weird tasting and strange textures.
