I am a huge believer in cultivating self-love and a positive body image before starting a weight loss journey…

Most people believe that if they just lose that stone or were a dress size smaller then they would be able to love themselves and feel great about their bodies.

Unfortunately, if that’s your mindset before you lose weight then that will always be your mindset towards your body. There will always be something else you want to change or adjust before you can look in the mirror and say ‘…

beach-beautiful-enjoyment-1671217

The last thing you want to do in the blistering heat of summer is to workout and get even sweatier, right?

Regardless of what country you are in if it’s hot just lifting an arm can cause you to sweat let alone a full-blown workout.

But summer is usually the time we let things slip and skip workouts and generally go off track, this means it’s harder to get back into the rhythm of things when summer is over, and, dare I say it, harder to lose those gained summer pounds in for Christmas!

Here’s …

It's time to decide...

It's only now I'm back on track with my nutrition and fitness that I realise that my excuses were completely made up.

I get is life gets busy, which is one of the reasons I came off track, but I soon realised that I even used that as an excuse to fuel more excuses and to not get back track.

Instead it is just a matter of priority and time management, as well as, commitment and consistency. 

This week I have done a full week of 25 minute workouts and reigned in my nutrition and it's only now a…

'I'll start Monday'

'I may as well start again after my holiday'

Do these sound familiar?Those time when you've been off track for a few days, weeks or months and you recommit and start again. It's often the time when people just don't start again, they feel like they are starting from scratch and it feels easier to just continue not working out and eating unhealthy food.

It's tempting and there's been a few times when I've thought the same. BUT then I realise that I'm really not 'starting ag…

What kind of weight loss-er are you?

I talk a lot about enjoying your journey and making you health and fitness a lifestyle instead of a 'diet' and 'workout binge'....

Why I've give up feeling guilty...

Why I no longer feel guilty when I skip a workout…

 

I think a lot of people think that because I’m a fitness instructor and personal trainer that I don’t have any body hang ups or that I don’t need to workout for me because I get exercise from the classes I teach.

Both not true. The reason I become a fitness instructor was because I didn’t like my body and thought teaching fitness would definitely whip me into shape! Okay it did to a certain extent but only when I taught a new class or…

The most underestimated weight loss advice...

WATER...

I cannot tell you how many people neglect the power of being hydrated and the wonders it can do not only to kick start weight loss but for your overall health and energy.

Our bodies are made up of mostly water and our cells need water to function properly. If we're dehydrated most of the time it means our bodies can't function or metabolise as effectively as they should.

You will be pleasantly surprised at how just upping your water intake to the recommended amount for your body, how…
