Sun, friendship and exercise

  Did you know that Post Natal Depression affects 10-15% of women and it is a recognised mental health condition? Pregnant women and new mothers in a quarter of the UK still have no access to specialist mental health services.

Popping our Parkrun cherry!

Today, inspired by a client, we took part in our first Parkrun – all four of us! Such a great feeling to get up early (ish) on a Saturday morning and exercise together as a family, of course it helped that the sun was shining and so nice to run along the river taking all the...

London Marathon – 22nd April 2018

So after months of training through a chilly winter and where snow stopped play twice, myself and Laura found ourselves on the start line of the London Marathon with the temperature at 24.2 degrees (the hottest London Marathon on record)! My aim was never about time, although the thought of crossing the line between 5-5.5...

Marathon surprise!

One evening, when scrolling Facebook, I noticed that my friend was looking for people to run the London Marathon for them, I responded immediately before I even had a chance to engage my brain with a “yes, I’ll do it”.

Is it time to divorce your phone?

I feel like I have written this blog before, but it is obviously an area that I need to improve on. I am conscious that I spend too much time on my phone, when my time, which is precious and limited for all of us, could be better spent elsewhere, but it is a hard...

Marathon Surprise!

Last year, alongside my sister and two friends, we completed the Oxfam Trailwalker, an amazing event and a massive achievement both mentally and physically. Initially I ended the event saying “never again” but by that evening I was already thinking “probably”! It seems that I am a person that thrives on a challenge, whether that...

Coffee break…

After a very busy week, it is nice to sit in a coffee shop and take stock, even better that Paul of Mivvy Creative, who I am meeting, is running late. Last Friday I ran 15 miles with a client who is training for the London Marathon in April, running is great thinking time for...

Are you striving for progress?

  The most rewarding part of my job is when people achieve their results, and sometimes because this is on such a gradual process, it is not always immediately obvious. I have recently starting a new online offering, Holistic Core Restore®Athlete 12, a lady who had previously attended my Everywoman programme signed up, when we...

It’s “snow” joke…

It’s been an interesting week…. School closed Cancelled clients Snow, snow and more snow Everyone loves a snow day, or so it seems. Previous years I have always been disappointed when a wintry shower (or two) is forecast and even more so when it arrives! Snow = clients cancelling = no money! This year, I...

Just keep moving….

As a family we spend a lot of time outdoors whether that be for walks, bike rides or visiting attractions. We had a fantastic day down at Betteshanger last week, if you haven’t been there yet, I highly recommend it. For me, being outside is a win-win situation; we get out in the fresh air which...

Time for a nap?

I have recently purchased a Fitbit Alta; as you would expect I generally achieve 10,000 steps most of the time (if not more), there are days however where I fall short, for example if I am in meetings or in the car for a longer journey. What I have found most interesting though is the...

Spring around the corner…

As I look out the window whilst typing this I am greeted with a beautiful sunny day, it is however bitterly cold. It brings me some hope though, that Spring is just around the corner; during Buggy Fitness this week I was aware of the birds singing and there are signs of life from the...
