The gym this week has been absolutely packed out and far busier than normal, whilst everyone sets themselves new 2017 health & fitness goals. I am absolutely all for a fresh new healthy start as long as the changes are likely to be sustainable. Health and fitness should be something that people integrate into part of their longer-term life otherwise it is so easy to let it slip. Dave and…

Before I got pregnant I was very much into my fitness. We had been struggling to conceive for many years and so I was running x3 times a week and eating healthy in order to improve our chances of getting pregnant via IVF. I felt great – so toned and energised. However, I’ve been having a love/hate relationship with fitness since having the twins nearly…

So seeing as it is May we can now officially say “It is our holiday next month!”. Which is very exciting indeed! The whole of April however (in our household) meant one thing only – chicken pox. Both Harry & Lottie suffered with it (2 weeks apart) and so the whole month was filled with sickness. I am glad to have it all out of the way…

Now that 2016 has officially arrived – and Christmas eating and drinking is long gone – it is time for me to get back in shape again!

However, whether you are doing the couch to 5k, training for a marathon, attending a Pilates class or you’re simply a…

And I was running, more toned and felt so much better about my body. I had cut out naughty, sugary treats during the week, and we were both feeling heaps happier about our health and…

At this time of year – winter time – fitting exercise into my busy life is pretty tough going. There seems to be so much going on socially, plus the winter mornings and evenings are just dark, and grim. My motivation levels for exercise can be low – and I can find it a real challenge to grab my trainers and go for a run. Far more…

The 2nd of my New Year’s Resolutions was a vow to get fit again. To get back into running. You might remember me getting all excited and smug about starting to run again during the summer. I hadn’t been for a run in over 2.5 years (after having the twins) and I was totally ready to do something. I had a Mum-tum and wobbly bits, but most of…

I have a confession to make. I feel dreadful telling you this, but I need to get it off my chest. It’s that I haven’t been running in weeks (maybe months) and I feel so awful at the moment. I feel like my Mum-tum is back and I feel so tired all of the time. I’m sure it’s partly due the weather change; it’s such…
