As you are well aware I am pretty imperfect by now, another imperfection to add to my list is my battle with the scales! Since when has weighing been good for anything? Baking we all love to add our ‘zaa zaa zoom’ with a flair of expression outside the ingredients, we all pray they go over that line on the wine glass in the pub, yet come to hopping on the scales …… and misery ensues! I spend so much time encouraging my clients and students to step away from using weight as a measure for wellness, for so many valid reasons, it saddens me to see the beautiful young ladies I train stressing over ..read more

Happy Friday everyone, although probably no-one gives a shit, apologies for a few days no report! Been a little sick – if WA had COVID would surely have been it… but maybe just nasty cold/ chest viral thing. Anyway, this means no energy, no activity… add the colder weather, the apple ring closures are a big fail for a fair few days. I am a failure, need to resign, lye in bed and cry all day….. what am I here for? Sound familiar? So already Mrs. PT, this week I’m gonna change the world, as no-one takes me seriously as my butt isn’t good enough, my waist isn’t small enough, my following is negli ..read more

Hating my body
Intelligent Exercise

I spend so much time feeling completely underwhelmed by how I look. My job is to help people focus on making choices to enable their lives to be heathier, happier, more balanced. The importance of that is feeling energetic, sleeping better, being able to do everyday tasks, reduced pain. These are the things that REALLY matter YES? HOWEVER – the most common goal response I get from my clients is around looks. This is hardly a great surprise, we are not going to change years of conditioning of what ‘beauty’ should be, advertised to us on TV, billboards and now, 24/7 via social media.

After 10 minutes figuring out how to get to my blogs! Was nearly on a lose lol. Anyway all in all I would say today way a glass half full. Morning began with normal Mum Uber aka ‘Muber’ duties, to a falling sick child, followed by a good old 7 hrs straight computer work, online meetings, you might be surprised be actually have some pretty high level stuff on my hands! But winning one – no more dog vomit! So today cold, windy, rainy – basic UK day. As said before how did I get through 35 yrs of exercise in UK. Bottom line, any excuse not to train again was going through both me and my eldest mi ..read more

So – my brain has been in overdrive for months. Shall I, or not, will anyone care or want? Then positive me goes yesss you know so much, you keep learning (literally 20 or more PDs this year alone). You train the next gen PT! Then the anxiety, negative me responds with – you are old and fat, no one cares, you are not an insta influencer. Then I argue in my brain – hey I know how to get the best, realistic, safety, longevity, but then I’m beaten down with – people want now, popularity, fomo. I guess the saddest thing has been all then years I have given my life, soul, passion to helping with no ..read more
