Let me ask you a question? When did you go on your first diet and why? Can you even remember? For me, it is all a bit blurry. I can remember when I was still going to dance school at the age or 10 or 11 hearing the mums of other children discussing our changing…

Don’t you just hate that word SHOULD??? I am asked about “Shoulds” all the time though in my line of work… How many times a week should I be running? How long should it take me to train for a 10K? How much should I spend on a pair of running shoes? And the answer…
