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

Is anyone else drinking a lot more these days? It feels like an effective way to separate the day from the evening doesn’t it?

Although I must admit, I seem to be separating my day from my evening earlier and earlier….

With this in mind, I thought we should take a look at how alcohol affects how you perform and recover – and how it affects your weight loss.

Of course, it’s not rocket science to know that drinking too much […]

It Doesn’t Have To Be All Or Nothing

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

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 […]

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 […]

Eating Very Little & Still Can’t Lose Weight?

“I hardly eat anything, and I still can’t lose weight”

Do you hear yourself saying this sometimes? Heck it is a frustrating place to be!

It’s pretty normal to lose weight easily at first, and then for your weight loss to tail off over time. This is because weight loss is annoyingly un-linear, and also because you do need to adjust your intake over time in order to keep seeing the scales move. If you’re smaller, you need less food to maintain your size, and so what was a calorie deficit for you at the beginning […]

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 […]

No Food Is ‘Free Food’

However you want to look at losing weight, one simple truth of any program which holds a chance of success is that a calorie deficit is required.

There are a million ways to create a calorie deficit through food and exercise, and there are a million ways to make it harder or easier through specific food choices and other habits.

Losing weight really should never become a game of maths. Thank goodness, really, as maths is not my strong point. Filling your body up with the nutrients it needs is crucial for long term progress, adherence – and health.

But still […]

Three Reasons You Won’t Make Lasting Changes In January

Happy New Year! I hope you are all feeling suitably stuffed after a super Christmas!

Regardless of whether you’re feeling all ‘New Year, New You’, I think most of us feel at least a little over indulged. A couple of weeks of paying less attention to getting the right food, or simply eating more than we’ve needed, leaves us feeling bloated, lethargic and generally yuck.

If we could bottle this feeling, it would make it easy to follow through with the ideas in our heads. But the reality is that the bloated ‘over-Christmassed’ feeling passes relatively quickly […]

What is the best way to inject some confidence into ourselves when making what could be a pretty significant lifestyle change?

The first thing is to start with changes which are so easy, it’s almost impossible not to make them.

What do you need to do this week to take you a step closer to your overall goal? How confident are you that you CAN do those things?

Note that there is a difference between “I can do that” and “there’s no real reason I shouldn’t be able to do that”.

If you’re not completely convinced […]
