Changing your lifestyle in order to lose weight and improve your health can feel like something of a massive and overwhelming project.

The time and effort it takes to make changes can test even the most strong-willed of us, and to me, one solution is to make ONE change at a time.

Rather than trying to overhaul your entire life overnight, choose one area to focus all of your attention on improving. Often, changing one key habit is enough to unlock […]

How Much Weight Have You Gained?

I’ve recorded this email as a video as well. You can find it on Facebook or Instagram.

There seem to be various numbers floating around, but apparently the average person has gained 0.6 stone during lockdown. That’s just shy of 4kg!

Apparently a third of us have gained significantly more than this too, and some of the numbers floating around are from over a month ago!

It sounds like a LOT of weight to gain doesn’t it. But, let’s break it down.

Of course there is way more to this, but it’s said that […]

It feels like there’s some hint that life may start to return to normal, although we’re not there yet – there is some time now to take a look at how you want your approach to health and fitness to change for the future before your brain gets filled up with all the things it was filled up with before!

We’ve been waiting for the green light to get back on with life as it was before – but, if your […]

Are You Changing For The Better?

How is this going for you?

It’s starting to feel like there could be an end in sight to all this – perhaps we will be starting to venture out more often over the next few weeks.

If we’re being honest, we have ALL changed our usual eating and exercising habits over the last couple of months. Some things have changed for the better, and some for the worst.

Many of our previously decent diets and exercise habits have slipped. I know I have drowned some of mine in gin.

Many of us are a little apprehensive about the […]

Stressed?

It is important to account for this stress we are under at the minute.

The stress we are under at the minute is different to the stress we are used to, but it is still stress. We are used to being stressed from rushing around too much, but stress can come from a wide variety of different areas. Including ‘strangeness’ and uncertainty.

A lot of people I’ve spoken to lately have commented that it seems harder than ever to make changes […]

It Doesn’t Have To Be All Or Nothing

Think back a few months, and remember some times that you said to yourself how easy it would be to make changes to your lifestyle if you had no other commitments and were able to focus just on yourself?

Funny how we find ourselves in pretty much that time right now.

And, actually, it seems harder than ever to make changes!

Have you found yourself lately saying that you’ll ‘get back to’ making changes after all this is over?

Which will […]

It’s Ok To Slow Down. How To Structure Your Day

So, we are stuck at home for a while. And if you’re anything like me it would be all too easy to spend all morning drinking coffee, maybe going for a walk, then spending the rest of the day picking through junk food and watching rubbish on TV, perhaps marking the change from day to evening with a g&t. Or two.

Honestly, obviously aside from what’s going on outside, I’m actually quite enjoying spending more time at home with less time pressure and more opportunities to do new things. But goodness me, it would be […]

Finding Purpose In This Strange Time

Goodness me, what a time to be alive!

I think it’s important to find a bit of a counter to the, understandable, stress and anxiety we are all feeling.

Having a purpose in life – i.e. having a good reason to get up in the morning – is associated with all sorts of positive health outcomes. But since our normal lives have been restricted, it’s quite possible that your ability to fulfil your purpose has been restricted too. This can leave us feeling lost as well as stressed and anxious about the future.

Let’s face it […]

Too Nervous To Work With A Coach?

It can be really hard to take the first step in changing your lifestyle.

Actually, I think it is one of the hardest parts of the whole journey. Regardless of how uncomfortable you are with where you are right now, making a change to your lifestyle involves taking a step outside of your comfort zone.

When you’re thinking about getting help from a personal trainer, so many thoughts run through your mind.

Am I too unfit? I should do some exercise before I start.

Am I too fat? Maybe I should lose weight before I get in touch.

Is […]

Do You Lack Willpower?

“If I had more willpower, I could stop eating so much junk”

Have you ever said, or thought this?

It’s true that you have to work at making changes, and that can be REALLY hard.

It can be interesting and useful to look at your environment as well though, and consider how making some changes there could make the willpower more easy to come by.

An example of this could be how difficult it is to avoid a couple of biscuits with your afternoon cuppa. If you’re sitting in the same place you always sit and trying to […]
