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 […]

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, […]

You don’t have to stay stuck

1st August 2019

The mood that you are in when you wake up and the feelings that you have are not set in stone for the day Some days I wake up feeling bright and shiny ️ Other days (like today) I woke up feeling anxious, and stressed out There isn’t rhyme nor reason to these feelings today (sometimes […]

Why I will NEVER look like a fitness model

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 […]
