Hello! Just a quick check in from me tonight to summarise last week:

Monday: Glo!

Tuesday: Fitball Stability and Stretch and Flow, which included a taster of trigger point Pilates 👍🏻

Wednesday: JogScotland

work got in the way on Thursday night, and I managed a fair bit of walking on Saturday and Sunday. Not bad! Here’s to another good week.

Hello, I hope you’re well on this dark, misty, damp night. It seems that winter is here, and we’ve started the working week with very little daylight.

Did you have a good week last week? I did, I was back on track and stick to my healthy eating up until the end of the week, but that was all part of my plan 👍🏻

Last Monday saw the return of Glo fitness, which Jacqui has added into the mix in place of WAR during this wintry weather. It felt fantastic to get the heart rate up, with disco lights and glow sticks to boot. Wilma has the most amazing trainers with multi coloured light up soles- I love them! I burned over 450 calories so it was a solid start to the week.

Tuesday night was a double header: Fitball Stability is a real favourite and we’re ramping up the intensity with heavier weights and increased intervals. That class was then followed by PiYo Stretch and Flow which always feels good afterwards.

I made it along to JogScotland on Wednesday- hurrah! And even though I hadn’t run in weeks, I managed a steady 35 minutes with no walk breaks. I really want to keep this up during the winter so I’ll be planning to run again this week, if I’m back in time.

I missed PiYo and VeraFlow on Thursday as I was at the Steps concert! 😀🎉 They were supported by the Vengaboys and I did plenty of dancing, managing over 27,000 steps for the day.

I also managed around 15k steps on Friday and on Saturday too, so I was pretty pleased with how the week went. I enjoyed a bit of a rest day yesterday as I was busy driving home, but I’m back to my usual routine today. Here’s your motivation for today:

Have a brilliant week!

OK. Last week didn’t go to plan. Or to be more precise, last week had no plan. I had a rare week where I did hardly any exercise, and I ate why I liked. Oops. 

I am now paying the price for that, feeling a bit rubbish and sluggish, and my jeans are a little too tight for comfort!

So, it’s back on track this week when I can- I do have a really busy week ahead, but I’ve started well today with my eating back on track and a spooky WAR class in the bag 👍🏻

We all have occasional blow outs, but that’s ok if it’s only once in a while, and if we rein it back in. 

If this resonates with you, I hope this helps:

Hello! How was your week? Mine was busy, but great fun. We were on holiday, spending three days in Somerset and three days in Edinburgh, so we pretty much covered the country from one end to another! 

We did plenty of walking and we enjoyed lots of great food – as well as a few gins 😁

But I’m back to my routine today, so I did my Sunday night food prep so that I could start on track first thing. 

Here’s to a new week, and here’s your motivation right here:

So, tell me: how has your week been? You may remember that last week I mentioned that I was doing a 10 day accountability/clean eating challenge, and it finished last Thursday. I really enjoyed the challenge and did well, losing a few centimetres and 2lbs along the way. I also re-established some food prep routines and focussed more on portion control and eating well. What’s not to love? 

After a few more lenient days over the weekend, I’m back on track until the end of the week when I’m having a few days away. 

I stayed in track with both my eating and my exercise last week, with one exception. I made it to my classes (Monday- WAR, Tuesday- Stability and then Stretch and Flow, Thursday- PiYo) but I wasn’t home in time for JogScotland last Wednesday. I’m hoping to get Running this week, however 👍🏻 

Here’s a lesson that really helped me during the 10 day challenge, which I really think is an absolute truth:


Have an ace week!

Hello! How has your week and weekend been? 

I’ve been really focussed, on my health, my food and my fitness 👍🏻 Jacqui has been running a 10 day accountability/clean eating challenge which was just what I needed. Thanks Jacqui! It started last Monday, so we are already in day eight and I have loved it. 

I’ve focussed on eating well- and cleanly- with no junk, no alcohol, no empty calories, and on staying active. To that end, I went to every class last week, which was great. Here was how my week looked:

Monday- no WAR, but as I reported last week, we did a lovely hill walk during the day instead

Tuesday- Stability ball class and PiYo Stretch and Flow. Doing the Doubler is great!

Wednesday- a wet Jog Scotland run, which I thoroughly enjoyed 

Thursday- PiYo signature round, for the first time in ages

Friday- Wii Fit

I didn’t do anything in particular over weekend as we had a quiet weekend planned, and it felt great! On Sunday evening a cold started to appear, but I’m pushing through as best as I can, it explains why I needed some extra R and R this weekend!

When the challenge comes to an end on Wednesday night I’m planning on keeping it on track, but loosening the rules only ever so slightly. I’m excited to check out my measurements on Wednesday night!

Here’s some positivity to help kickstart your week if you need it:  Have a great week!

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! 

We’ve had a lovely weekend, with lots of RnR. Last week was great, though a busy week at work meant that my training wasn’t quite a planned I’m afraid. We had no WAR on Monday, but I did a double class on Tuesday: stability class is getting tougher using weights, medicine ball and increased reps with every week. This was followed by PiYo stretch and flow, which I really love. I missed Jog Scotland on Wednesday and I also missed Thursday night PiYo. Here’s hoping for a calmer week this week, with more of my regular routine.

We had no WAR tonight as its a holiday, insteaywe had a lovely long walk past Tarbert Castle, and it was as beautiful – if foggy- easy for it.

Here’s your motivation for the coming week: 

Have a good week, all!
