How Many Donuts Can Ya Fit In Ya Mouth?

A donut to one person may mean not much, but a donut to another may be the deal breaker on if they can stick with a diet until the goal is reached. NEVER and I repeat NEVER take things out of your diet that you love. If you do or a PT tells you to. You’re an idiot. No...

LOOK FIT STAY FIT

LOOK FIT STAY FIT

It's funny how buying a new pair of trainers gets you enthusiastic to go wear them at the gym. I find If I am feeling a scruffy mess and I don't have comfy clean looking clothes on I don't feel as good. And who would, we all want to look nice. We want our bodies to...

SUMMER STARTED YESTERDAY!

SUMMER STARTED YESTERDAY!

The earliest sun rises of the year started happening a few days ago. You may not have noticed them for being tucked up in bed missing out on the magic. I hate missing out on anything to do with Summer, I'm a sun junkie, a fitness junkie and a food junkie. All of those...

IBIZA’S CALLING AGAIN

IBIZA’S CALLING AGAIN

I’m one of those extremely impulsive people. I hate making plans and having something in my diary that is six weeks away. Because in six weeks time something better might come along I want to do, and I like to have the flexibility to be able to do what I want on a...

YOU BIG FAT QUITTER

YOU BIG FAT QUITTER

The temptation to give up is a common one, and nobody is exempt. Failure isn't something many of us can handle gracefully. And even though we know it's a common human condition, we're somehow always surprised when it happens to us. A shocking thing that I find always...

I ALWAYS GET MY WAY

I ALWAYS GET MY WAY

The thing people worry about change when it comes to setting new goals in your fitness and nutrition habits is the fear of having to completely move away from your normal routine and leave  behind those things you love. But when you look at things in a different...

Last orders anyone…

Last orders anyone…

Last orders at the bar, you’ve probably got only 10 minutes to get your drinks order in. No matter how many deep the bar is, if you want those drinks bad enough you will find a way to make last orders! It’s Sunday, the shops are going to shut at 4pm and you’re...

THINK YOU CAN HANDLE ME?

THINK YOU CAN HANDLE ME?

If you happen to be one of the unfortunate people who’s gone through a starvation diet, or a diet that had you excessively restrict any one nutrient to unhealthy, unbalanced proportions (keto being an example), I really feel for you. Its about eating tons of CARBS,...

TOMARTO TOMAYTO

Last night we had tears. My 10 year old has literally cracked in lock down, it all got too much and we had to have a good talk with him. Problem is the computer is all these kids have got sometimes and they’re all together chatting to each other but it can get too...

WHAT’S BEHIND THE DOOR FOR YOU?

WHAT’S BEHIND THE DOOR FOR YOU?

As I stood in the Parcel Force office (behind the “coronavirus” taped line on the floor) waiting for someone to answer the call of the bell I tried to gather my thoughts. Try as I might so many things were whirling through my head at light speed that I started to feel...

IT’S GROUNDHOG DAY…

IT’S GROUNDHOG DAY…

I'm not really sure what day it is until I look at my training schedule to see what I am doing in the gym each day. Do any of you feel like you're living a groundhog day life or that you're waiting to be part of an episode of Punk'd? It wouldn't be that funny would...

IS YOUR PT CHEATING ON YOU?

IS YOUR PT CHEATING ON YOU?

What drives me mad is secret keeping. I’m the worst I’m so nosey, if there’s something going on I bet you I will find out what it is. It’s such an affliction which has me ruining my own surprises. But on the flip side I’m pretty astute as to what’s going on around me...

SEIZE THE DAY TOMORROW ISN’T A GUARANTEE…

Today we said goodbye to a very special little girl who’s strength, courage and light has changed all of our lives forever. I won’t go into any more than that as these are my private thoughts and feelings, but one thing you have to have in this situation is faith that...

MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLE HILLS….

MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLE HILLS….

So today’s been interesting. I spent 5 hours driving around trying to pick my other half up from a flight that depearted JFK last night, but I got his message this morning saying, “pick me up at 9am”. To which I’m like, “from fucking where!?”. By the time I’d read the...

IT’S TIME TO FIGHT, GET STRONG! WE WILL WIN…

So this morning when I got up it seemed that this bloody weather had the ability to affect me both outside the house and inside it too. I was sick of this rain to a whole new level when I saw Alexa still flashing 2am and that there is no wifi in the house. As I stand...

THE AGE OF APPROPRIATENESS

THE AGE OF APPROPRIATENESS

Do you remember being a kid and a sex scene coming on the TV while you were sitting in the living room with your parents. God - how awkward did that make you feel? I wanted the couch to swallow me whole, especially after they decided to make a big deal out of it. OMG...

THE TOILET PAPER SHAME

HALF HEARTED HENRYS

PUTTING MY LOAD IN & GETTING SCREWED UP

Let’s talk about laundry.  I ram as many wet clothes into that drum as possible just to speed up my chores and get done quick. I bloody hate it in there. As I write this some button on a pair of Steve’s jeans is banging constantly on the drum. I’m too lazy to go fix...

SECOND HAND SUZIE…

THE MORONS ONLINE & POKING MY FINGER IN

It is a strange world out there. I put myself in the firing line every day on facebook like we all do, we open up our lives to the masses in order to gain friends, communicate our message, promote our businesses or even just to get attention. We are all attention...

GETTING WHAT YOU WANT!

GETTING WHAT YOU WANT!

Getting what you want! As much as giving to your goal is important - having fun for me is far more important. But you don't need to go without just because you have your sights set firmly on the prize. Oh no, you just have to be smart about the way you go about...

LYING IS LYING TO YOURSELF

LYING IS LYING TO YOURSELF

I will tell the truth. I have told some whopping lies in my time - and I was skilled from a young age in doing so which is probably why my family insisted to everyone we meet that I should have been on the stage. You know that thing your family play on repeat at a...

The True Implication Of The £1 Bikini

MISSGUIDED is now selling a bikini for £1. That’s less than a copy of Grazia magazine, less than a bus fare, less than a takeaway latte. It hardly needs pointing out that clothing that costs a quid isn’t made to endure. It’s as disposable as a Love Island relationship...
