This is me. This is not who I used to be

In the last 17 weeks I worked out EVERY. SINGLE.DAY.⁣⁣
I used to do everything in my power to skip PE at school, hated (and still do) the idea of the gym and generally preferred my sofa to my trainers. ⁣⁣
Until I made a commitment earlier this year to go back to running and get better at it. ⁣⁣
Until at a vitality retreat in June I made a commitment to…

Big weight questions answered

The world of weight loss is full of confusion, conflicting information and fear. I talk to so many women who are never satisfied with the number on the scale, never satisfied with the way they look and they wait to start living their lives when…. they hit the target number, when they buy the smallest pair of jeans, when….


They often have many questions because as I said before the…

If I was in my ideal body….

Last week I asked you what would you do if you were in your ideal body and you answered so openly and thoughtfully.

  • I would do a skydive for charity
  • Buy and wear some super sexy hot dresses
  • Book a boudoir shoot
  • Run a 10k
  • Walk around the house naked

I am writing this long overdue letter to apologise to you, and I am sorry it took me so long to actually…

Would you listen if I told you what I need?


If your body told you what She needs would you listen? Would you pay attention? Would you actually do what She is asking for or would you override Her because you know better?


My main goal every day is to be nice to my body. Do I always succeed? Hell no! I fail probably most days, but I keep trying.


I didn’t sleep well last night and this morning I was…

Body Love

Up until couple of months ago I used to refer to my body as IT, until I learnt to call my body SHE. It is a small, subtle change but boy was it significant. It changed the way I look at my body; it made her more real, deserving more attention and made me realize that together we are a team. It is not me running this show on…
