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...

Yet most of us waste those hours due to lack of motivation or not wanting to get out of our cosy beds and face the day!

'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...

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...

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...

How to eat healthily when you're not a rabbit!

animal-animal-photography-bunny-104373.jpg

When it comes to eating a healthy diet I hear this so much, 'yes but I don't want to live on rabbit food'. Referring of course to the mounds of salad they will have to eat in the process of being healthy.

I get it! Eating healthy can feel very daunting and restrictive when you're starting out and in this day and we are bombarded with packaged food and lack the skills to turn rabbit food into something amazingly delicious!

We also have a warped view that eating healthy means boring and...

'Focus not on the outcome but the joy the journey brings you'

And lets face it we this weight loss exercise and trying to achieve our perfect bodies has to be filled with struggles, deprivation and punishment when in fact we can get better longer lasting results if you enjoy the process and make it a way of life.

Okay so I don't want to turn this into how to be a Pollyanna but have you noticed how we all have a tendency to focus on the negatives...

We focus on what's not working in ours lives...

blur-chart-check-up-415779.jpg

 I feel like I've found my fitness flow but it's soooo different to what I thought it would be.

What do I mean by 'fitness flow'. I mean being in that place where you finally feel like you have your fitness sorted. It's no longer a chore and its part of your lifestyle...

...Well this is what I thought my fitness flow would feel like! And in a way it is. It's now more of a lifestyle and I rarely go 2 days without doing some form of exercise but its still not a flow that comes as easy as I...
