Holiday blues…Back on track

The last month has been a busy one, summer holidays and having to work on through has meant my time has been pretty much filled to the brim….and then there were the family holidays away!!

Time away over indulging and spending quality time with your family is what holidays are about, and going away twice within a month has not done my waist line any favours. Why am I telling you this? Because I am human, because I do the same things as the rest of you when I go on holiday, and because I understand how hard it is getting back on track again post holiday.

That first gym session back was a struggle, realising that my hard work pre holiday, to feel as great as possible in a bikini had been almost completely undone. Did I cry? Nearly, I felt like it, but I also really enjoy the process of seeing the results happen, so I am equally looking forward to correcting the damage of 2 all inclusive holidays.

There is nothing worse than your clothes feeling a little tight, and right now, my jeans are pinching a little, but it doesn’t matter, I would do it all again in exactly the same way because I truly believe when you work hard day in and day out, you should get to relax and enjoy your time off.

So for now, my plan of action has been drinking my bodyweight in water, hitting the gym hard, and weening myself off the delights of all inclusive. It feels good to be getting back on track, its never easy, but it will be worth it!

Excuses, excuses…

I was flicking through Facebook, eating my lunch, when I came across a motivational quote that someone had posted in a group I follow.

Food Is Medicine

  Today I have found out that I have finally passed some more very important courses that I have been slaving away over the last few months. I can confirm I am now an Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor, and a Nutritional Therapist. These two courses have been extremely interesting and those of you…

Lets get motivated!!!!!

How cold is it today?  Stepping foot out of the door at 6.15am for PT this morning certainly woke me up!!  It is so hard to get motivated when its cold outside, the thought of leaving a warm house, a warm bed, a warm car…and hitting an air conditioned gym isn’t very appealing for some.…

Be patient

Are you stepping on the scales after every gym session? Please, please be realistic.  Results take time, they take patience, and they take a lot of perseverance.  If it was that easy everyone would do it!!!!   Time and time again I hear people having unrealistic time frames when it comes to their goals.  Maybe…

I can’t stop peeing!!!!

Sometimes my clients look at me like I am insane….’drink water like your life depends on it,’ is what they get told.  Yes you will pee for England, but water is fundamental for everything you do every day!!!   When I say drink water like your life depends on it, I really do mean it,…
