New Goals..

I am listening to a great book on Audible at the moment; The Answer by Allan and Barbara Pease. Although I am currently only a couple of Chapters in, the book aims to teach you how to: Set and action clearly defined goals Overcome obstacles, despite what others think, do or say Take responsibility for...

Keep calm and carry on !

We are just one week in to the school holidays and already it has been fairly challenging. Lots of juggling required as I am trying to keep the balance of spending time together as a family but also working hard behind the scenes for the launch of Reviva in September. Planning, as always is definitely...

Stay in shape for the Summer!

If you are like me, a Mum of school aged children, you will know that the Summer holidays are now upon us and therefore bring on 6 weeks of madness!! You are probably breathing a sigh of relief of not having to get out of the door where you may well have asked the following...

Fail to plan, plan to fail!

In last week’s blog I mentioned that I  had printed off  a timetable to plan my week and ensure that every moment of the day was used to its optimum. One week in I am happy to share that, in the main, it has been a success. I identified times of the day that were...

Wind beneath my wings…

I spent the day in London yesterday on a course, I always come away from events like this with a renewed focus and drive to achieve my goals, so much so that today I got up early and wrote a timetable planner for the week! It was a hot day, which can often make it...

A little bit of Zen!

Today I missed my “normal” Sunday routine. For the past three weeks I have been getting up early to go to David Lloyd, having a quick 20-30 minute workout in the gym, followed by a couple of hours in the lounge with something hot (maybe a coffee) and a focus on business planning. However, last...

Fit, strong and happy!!

We (myself and my sister) lost our Mum on 26th June 2008, I felt that this 10 year anniversary couldn’t pass without a mention to how she shaped us into the people we became or perhaps have both yet to discover. Mum had an amazing work ethic, which we both inherited and I know this...

Lifestyle reboot!

Are you a woman in your late 30’s/early 40’s? The kids are getting older, not quite at the leaving home stage maybe but things are definitely easier; they can go to the toilet by themselves , even go into the kitchen to help themselves to food! How are you feeling? Generally in good health? There...

Time for me?

Are you scheduling in time for you? There is a common theme appearing here and I really should learn from it, perhaps that time is now. At the start of the week, I had a bit of an emotional breakdown, I was feeling overwhelmed with everything and subsequently my life was out of balance: Kids...

Post-Holiday Thoughts

We have just returned from a few days away camping in Croyde; for me it is the perfect getaway, the pace naturally slows down, quality time is spent together whether that be playing Uno, Swingball or walking home from the pub in a thunderstorm! Time on electronic devices is reduced meaning that the level of...

Popping our Parkrun Cherry!

Today, inspired by a client, we took part in our first Parkrun – all four of us!

Sun, Friendship and Exercise

When I set up my Buggy Fitness class 11 years ago, I naively thought it was all about the exercise, but the years have taught me it is about so much more.
