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 […]

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 […]

Stuck in a ‘weight-loss’ rut

‘I am doing everything right but I am not getting results’ Hitting a plateau is a common occurrence, and understanding what to look out for is essential so that you don’t lose motivation!

#STARTober

7th October 2019

#STARTober   Instead of giving something up this month (or in the new year)   Why don’t you START something positive?   Re-framing the activity   …AND changing the language that you use….   Makes a real difference in your feelings about the choices that you are making!   Instead of giving up chocolate, or […]

You are only powerless if you BELIEVE that you are powerless

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 […]

Where do you draw your inner strength from?

7th August 2019

When the going gets tough….   …..do you give up?   Whether its weight loss, fitness, better health, more confidence, more energy that you want…..   If you aren’t prepared to see it through to the end   You aren’t going to get what you want   Quitting is the EASIER path for sure….   […]

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 […]

Never enough

29th July 2019

So I’m finding it hard to shake of the feeling of elation since watching ‘The Greatest Showman‘ last week It wasn’t difficult to find another powerful message to draw from the movie which applies so easily and frequently to our lives… First of all though I’d like to ask you a question: Could you be […]

You can’t see the wood for the trees

15th July 2019

Something that I realised this week was that I was stuck going around in circles   I am a human too, and whilst you might look to me as a role model of sorts, this doesn’t mean that I live a squeaky clean and perfect life….   Far from it in fact   I struggle […]
