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…

It has started already hasn’t it. The whole health and fitness industry are gearing up for their annual frenzy of advertising….and lets not think about the campaigns which will hit our screens from the dieting world on 1st January. I’ve already had emails with headings like “Avoid Santa Belly This Xmas” “Want to indulge this…

I have never done a Couch to 5K programme AND furthermore I don’t think you have to use a c25k plan at all to run your first 5k There I have said it. *silence as I await the backlash* So what is the meaning of this outburst? I must get a thousand emails a day…

I am often asked “What you gonna do when you lose all your weight? You’ll have to change the name of your blog?” because weight loss of course is the ultimate goal right? No wrong!! I used to think that way though, seriously I used to believe that life would be so much easier if I could…
