To say it's been hot these past few weeks is an understatement! For anybody that has managed to get to the gym or head out for a run, I have so much respect for you. How have I fared on that front? Well, I'll be honest, not great! So, how can we all stay motivated when the weather is hot hot hot?!
In all the chaos of our busy lives, it’s crucial we find a quiet moment every now and then. That’s what I was trying to achieve when I went to my first Just Breathe event recently. Read all about how it went here!
Flykick (https://flykick.co.uk/) is a brand spanking new fitness class in Regent's Place, London where they offer a workout they've coined the Flykick Formula. I went to try it out last weekend with the crew at Barbell Brunch Club (https://www.barbellbrunchclub.com/). Here’s my review!
So it turns out that working a full time job, staying fit and healthy, whilst also recording it all in a blog is super time-consuming! Sorry for not writing a blog for, oh, about 4 months!!! Here’s why…
Happy New Year everybody!! I hope you had a delightful New Year’s Eve doing whatever you were doing and eating and drinking whatever you desired! Have you made any New Year's resolutions yet? If you have and one of them is to lose weight, before you embark upon it, let me tell you about my mostly hate relationship with that particular goal and how I made it much more positive and achievable!
It's taken a while but I've finally resigned myself to the fact that summer has well and truly left me and winter really is here for the long haul. Now that it’s cold and dark, I’m finding it an altogether different challenge to stay focused and motivated on the health and fitness front. However, I’m trying my best to push through and, after an initial blip, so far it appears to be working!!!
One of the things that often falls by the wayside when you’re rushing to catch your early train is that oh so important fuel, breakfast. Often when I’m pressed for time, I’ll grab a quick smoothie before I head out the door. As requested by some of you, here are some delicious and speedy recipes for you to try! All you need is a blender and the ingredients! Simple and speedy!!
Since I’ve been cycling into work, it’s surprised me how many people (even born and bred Londoners) have asked me with concern whether I feel safe on the roads. So I thought it might be interesting if I wrote a short little blog to tell you about the realities of riding on the road and tips for staying safe, including pimping up my bike to resemble a disco ball! Here, I hope to dispel some fears...especially my Mum's, who I'm sure is thoroughly unconvinced by my constant reassurances to her that I'm safe!
I’m immensely proud of my nearest and dearest. They’re all doing amazingly well; whether that’s with their careers, relationships, families, or because they’re just awesome individuals full stop. So why then are so many of the people I know (including me) so hard on themselves? Yes, okay, we all need to be a little tough on ourselves, otherwise we wouldn’t achieve anything BUT we also need to start recognising how well we’re doing and give ourselves a bloody break once in while!!
