The Struggle is real….

December 4th        Uncategorized    No Comments

Id say pretty much for the whole of this year Ive been struggling with massive body issues and hang ups but its definitely been highlighted during lockdown and not because I am lazy (Im far from it….my job literally wouldn’t allow me to be) or because I over eat, its been highlighted more due to the pandemic meaning I had to change how I run my business so I went 100% online…which means looking at myself on a Screen at least 3 times a day, editing videos and seeing my body all the time….this hasn’t been good for myself confidence or self esteem….and I have really struggled…and I really feel like no-1 understands, friends will always say “You look fine/strong/healthy to me” or “Dont be daft you look good”…and whilst thats great it doesnt help how I feel….Honestly?? I dont know whats going on, I actually move more now – allowing myself daily walks and teaching more than ever (and because its online I physically have to take part in every class)…yet here I am – in the worst shape of my life, heaviest Ive been (although tbh weight doesnt bother me) and I am so embarrassed and feel like a fraud – its gotten so bad at times Ive cried (yes cried!!) whilst editing videos because I am ashamed of whats going on….now Im not stupid and I know how the body works and theres a lot more than meets the eye….and it never gets helped when trolls or people say stuff..(but in all fairness this has nothing to do with them but they do add to the issues)

I dont even know why I am sharing this but one thing I do know is that YOU NEVER know what someone is going through in their life…Im sharing it I suppose to say it isnt “alright” for us Fitness people because its our job..we are just human too, nor should we be pressured to look a certain way….there is no such thing as the 

”ideal”  body and having a fit looking body doesnt define who you are as a person or what you are capable of…I am good at my job, I know I am (without being conceted) BUT I am struggling with serious body image issues and low self esteem right now.
Here I am chatting pure shit that probably no1 wants to read or even cares about
Stop judging people who work in Fitness and expecting an “Ideal” because it doesnt exist

How you look doesnt define your worth in this world….but it can knock u sideways and make you hit rock bottom
I guess my point…be kind always, because behind a smile and a cheery face someone could be hurting so bad…so just dont be a prick ok??
It will always be 1000000% honesty in my posts and never Bullshit…I will always be open about my struggles in the hope I can bring comfort or help someone else…and if you’ve gotten this far reading this then I applaud you
As you were

Br Proud of YOURSELF – small business owners this is for you

December 2nd        Uncategorized    No Comments

During my daily walk today…I done a bit of reflecting and wanted to share – if you have a small business this is especially for you.

I thought back to March and how when this whole lockdown malarky started and how I sh*t myself about my business…about how I was going to survive and I seriously wondered if I would lose my business all together….with a job that was 100% face2face what was I going to do.

Fast forward 8 months later I am still here and business is thriving….albeit in a totally different way than I ever thought and I couldn’t be more grateful…and day know what I couldn’t be prouder either….yes Ive worked my ass off for it BUT Ive made it work

So….my point? If you have a small business and you flipped it and made it work through lockdown, if like me you’ve worked your ass off and made your business work for you and survived all the lockdowns and craziness thats been happening then I just want to say “ BE PROUD OF YOURSELF”….YES, its OK that we are proud of ourselves and our achievements….so maybe tonight just take a BIG deep breath and be proud of all you’ve achieved – because if you business can survive 2020 lets be honest we can survive anything

Give yourself a big pat on the back…and smile

Crystals – where do You start?

November 16th        Uncategorized    No Comments

Do you see peoples Crystal Collections and just wonder ” where do I start”?

With so many crystals around and them becoming a lot more popular lately, it can be confusing to know what crystals are good to start with cant it?

I always say to go with crystals you are drawn to, or that present themselves to you in the strangest of ways…..if you are drawn to a crystal for whatever reason it may be…..you need that crystals healing energies in your life….

But what if you aren’t drawn and just want to know where to start??

Ive put together a little list of Crystals I feel are GREAT Starters and GREAT all rounders too.

Rose Quartz – connected to the heart Chakra and all about Love, Self love and compassion – its a light pink crystal.

Amethyst – a great all rounder and really helps with calming the mind and anxiety too – its purple in colour

Clear Quartz – this is the master healer and also amplifies the energies of any other crystals it is around…a great one for the crystal tool box

Citrine – the crystal of energy and abundance, also a great financial abundance crystal ( I keep a piece in my purse always) – its yellow in colour

Grab your start Crystal Pack from me for just £5!!!

Whilst there are 1000s of different crystals…these 4 are a great starter

They can be bought as a crystal, on a bracelet or keyring, necklace…..its just personal preference.

I really hope this has helped and if you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch

Also if you would like to purchase these crystals, you can also do so from myself – Grab your start Crystal Pack from me for just £5!!!

Love and Light

PMS

November 16th        Uncategorized    No Comments

Drink plenty of fluids and herbal teas

As much as a good diet will help, sometimes you will need to add some supplements and here are the key ones for helping with PMS:
Vitamin E = helps with mood swings and irritability

Magnesium & B6 = VITAL mineral and women are often very deficient in it. It is a calming mineral and has a relaxing effect on the nervous system, reduces headaches and relaxes muscles.

Zinc = Balances sex hormones

Alternative Therapies can also be very helpful:
– Homeopathy
– Acupuncture
– Aromatherapy
– Reflexology 

PMS can be associated with increased Oestrogen, Food Cravings and water retention but by adjusting diet and lifestyle you can treat the underlying issues and not mask the symptoms.

Injuries and the Emotional Response

November 9th        Uncategorized    No Comments

 Injuries and how it can affect us Mentally…from when we are injured to the recovery/getting back into Fitness

Emotional responses to injury include sadness, feelings of isolation, irritation, lack of motivation, frustration, anger, alterations in appetite, sleep disturbance, and feeling disengaged.

Here are some things you can do to help whilst injured

  1. Set clear and realistic goals. 
  2. Visualise a healthy you. Don’t underestimate the power of visualisation. 
  3. Be optimistic.
  4. Focus on the present moment and what you can do – focus on the things you can control and dont worry about the things you cant
  5. Honour your feelings, its OK to feel different emotions but its important we honour them…writing them down also help – as does talking to someone
  6. Accept help and support. If you cant talk to your family and friends then please always message me, everything is in strictest confidence, Im always here if you ever need someone to talk to
  7. Take control – of what u can control

Getting Confidence back after Injury

  1. Don’t isolate yourself….speak to other girls or even me
  2. Visualise your recovery
  3. Maintain your self-esteem through other means, do other things that make you feel good and confident 
  4. Educate yourself about the injury, and seek out the advice of myself or others in the team
  5. Rebuild confidence gradually…it may take time but just keep doing something everyday
  6. Do not compare your post-injury self to your pre-injury self –  THIS IS MASSIVE!!! The body may have changed, as may fitness…dont try and go back to day 300…start day 1 now and build up, or you may end up a million steps behind

A final note

Injuries can be brutal. They take away our endorphins. They take away our outlet from the real world. They make us doubt ourselves. My take home message, above and beyond everything else, is do not let an injury shake your resolve or make you doubt who you are or make you question your sanity because that’s when an injury has become more than just a bodily menace…..you are always stronger than an injury and always reach out if you need to

Hope this has helped

Choosing Crystals..

November 9th        Uncategorized    No Comments

When it comes to choosing Crystals…it can be a bit confusing, so Ive put together a few ways in which you can choose Crystals for you or others

1. You are drawn to one…when you look at crystals or touch them you feel drawn to one and need it in your life…you may not know why at first but it will make sense

2. You know what healing you need in your life….if this is the case ask me and I can advise what crystal you need

3. You know the crystal you want…but arent sure why…again feel free to ask

4. You are gifted one – the person has either gifted it to you for a reason or they were also drawn to it

There are NO rules when it comes to choosing crystals, its such a personal thing

A crystal will always find its way to you when you need it – whether thatd from you chooisng it or someone else

Hope this has helped

Are you ruled by your watch??

November 9th        Uncategorized    No Comments

Are you being ruled by your watch??

Now-a-days a lot of us have a smart watch/tracker and whilst they can be really helpful and motivational…they can also cause us stress and they aren’t 100% accurate

The calories burnt during a workout are NOT right…they are about 30-40% out, so dont rely on them too much

Also they are often (as per the picture) a little bit judgey 

How dare a watch tell you that you need to stand up or you havnt moved enough today??

There are going to be days we want to rest and not much as much, hey we may even be ill/injured and what we dont need is a watch telling us that we aren’t doing enough or telling us off for not moving enough

Please dont let your watch rule you

Dont let the watch tell you what you have and havnt done

YES they can be helpful for steps and tracking some stuff BUT dont forget they ARENT~ 100% accurate 

A watch shouldn’t rule your day and if you find that these little notifications from your watch are triggering guilt and making you do more than you actually want to – then its time to take the watch off

YOU are in control of what you do and dont do….NOT your watch

Its ok…

October 15th        Uncategorized    No Comments

“Today was a Difficult Day,” said Pooh.

There was a pause.

“Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.

“No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”

“That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

“What are you doing?” asked Pooh.

“Nothing, really,” said Piglet. “Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don’t feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

“But goodness,” continued Piglet, “Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you. And I’ll always be here for you, Pooh.”

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs…he thought that his best friend had never been more right.”

~ A.A. Milne

Sending love to those having a Difficult Day today ♥️😘
