5 things I’ve learnt on my fitness journey

In the last few months, I’ve seen some friends who I hadn’t seen in a while. A lot of them have been asking me what I’ve been doing to get into the shape I’m in now and how I manage to keep going with everything I have going on. I’ve also been going through some old pictures and videos since…

What’s my body type?

What’s my body type?

Have you been trying to lose weight for years with different diets and types of exercise? Do you find that the thing that works for your friend doesn’t work you? It’s so frustrating working super hard on your diet and training and not getting any results. Of course, training and and a good diet will get you some results, but…

My 3 Go To Breakfast Options

My 3 Go To Breakfast Options

I love food. I love eating it and I love making food for others. Breakfast is probably my favourite meal because there is just so much choice. I mean, the fact that I can do sweet or savoury, 1 course or 2 courses, just makes it the most enjoyable meal time for me. Just typing this is making me excited…

New to the gym?

New to the gym?

So, you’ve decided to join the gym. You have told yourself that you are going to be committed to going a few times a week to get fitter and stronger. Awesome! But the gym can seem like an intimidating place with people grunting or dropping heavy weights on the floor. Some gyms might seem unfriendly as people have their headphones…

Can I really get fit at home?

Can I really get fit at home?

This has got to be a question that so many of us have asked ourselves at one point or another. The misconception is that you need to go to a class or a gym with lots of equipment to get a good workout in. Thankfully, for those of us who are not always able to make it to the gym,…

Can you believe that Christmas is only 4 weeks away??! It has only started to feel like it this weekend for me when we went to a lovely Christmas Grotto in Sidcup (Ruxley Manor) and saw Father Christmas and all the lovely decorations there. It’s given me some great inspiration for when we set up our decorations over the next…

Why are the numbers on the scales not changing?

Why are the numbers on the scales not changing?

I happen to have 2 scales at home. One just reads your weight, the other, weight, BMI and body fat. One day, I decided to weigh myself on both scales and noticed that they gave me different results. I then went to the gym and weighed myself there. I got different results again. Funnily enough, I was having this conversation…

5 ways to burn calories when you’re a parent

My daughter, Elsie, LOVES nursery rhymes! She wakes up asking to watch them, and we sing them before she goes to bed. Her favourite ones are those that include actions or dancing, which I found really cute…until we had done “heads, shoulders, knees and toes” 15 times in the space of 10 minutes. For us mums, finding time to exercise…

My easy and delicious granola recipe

My easy and delicious granola recipe

Granola is one of my favourite things to have for breakfast or a snack. But, 1. It’s way too expensive for what it is and 2. Shop bought versions always have too much sugar. Oh, and there’s also the fact that you have to find the brand that has just the right ingredients that you actually like! I like nutty…

TOP PICKS TO HELP YOU SLAY ALL DAY Gym outfits are pretty much my every day outfits now. That doesn’t mean that I want to wear boring tops and leggings though. I still want to be able to slay all day in what I’m wearing. I’m signed up to lots of mailing lists for active wear companies, like Sweaty Betty, Gymshark and MyGymWardrobe,…

How should I train at the gym?

How should I train at the gym?

From observing and talking to people at the gym, I think it’s clear that most people prefer to know what they are doing there. They like to know how to perform exercises properly and what exercises they should be doing. Sometimes people like to freestyle their sessions, which is fine too, but you definitely get better results if your workouts…
