So I am just going to say this right from the off. I am not the biggest fan of cross country running I’m sorry, I’m just not. The cold. The mud. The hills….I just can’t always face the idea of it, let alone the reality. Plus, I had to do it back in school in…

I think I have got myself a bit of a reputation. Let me explain…. Whenever an obesity story hits in the UK, a new bit of research or some kind of incident that has got the medias attention…my phone starts to go. When this first started happening I got all excited and would spend days…

It was my birthday yesterday, but I wasn’t much in the mood for celebrating. On Saturday I spent an awesome afternoon in the sun with friends, family and women from The Clubhouse having a birthday picnic, there was cake, gifts, fizz and oh so much laughter, with the best bunch of women ever, so I…

Happy New Year Folks. How you holding up? Been for your first run yet (me neither ooopps) Had enough of the diet adverts across the media yet? Or the constant flow of healthy food and exercise segments on day time TV? Hmmm, me too. I have not started a new diet…and I have not set…

With 2017 just hours away now…it gives me great pleasure to announce that my book New Year Same You is now available as an audiobook via Audible. This is exciting on a number of levels…but I am excited mainly because so many women have been asking for this so that they can listen to it…
