Are Your Goals Even Yours? 

Since spending time with some of the UKs very best Transformation Coaches in London, I have come to understand a lot more about the psychology of behaviour change.

Psychology has always been something that I have found particularly interesting, and I have continued to study the topic in many different ways. NeuroPlasticity being one of them!

And this was when I came up with the concept that people’s “goals” may not even be based on who they are and what they want.

Stay with me here, it’s going to take some explaining!

I recently read a book by the late Alan Watts, which discussed how “genuine” or “natural” we are. In his lectures he suggested that the moment that we are born and for just a short time after, we are at our most genuine.

This could be the only moment in our lifetime that we are free from opinion, influence or perception.

From that moment on, every person and everything that we encounter, bears an influence on us that, over time, forms the person that you are today.

From what foods you like and eat, what to shows you watch or sports teams you support.

But these influences are not necessarily a true reflection of who we are, we just slot in where we fit.

Over the past few months I have been coaching some amazing ladies through their transformations and at the first coaching call I asked them all the same question “Who Are You?”

The answers didn’t really have any passion, conviction or believable feeling attached. In fact, most initially answered with their name… that’s not what I wanted to know, otherwise I would have asked “what is your name?”

So we went through a series of exercises to establish some good old fashioned truths,  and we dug deeper into their thoughts, wishes and inspirations.

Once we had completed all of these exercises, I went back and asked them the same question, “Who Are You?”, and the answers were totally different. I then went on to ask them what they wanted to achieve in their transformations and their goals had totally changed from what they had said originally as well.

This wasn’t a one off experience, it’s happened numerous times with clients all over the UK and in other countries as well.

What I now believe is that their original goal was not in fact their own, but a combination of what they thought they should be, mixed up with what they thought others wanted, or expected them to be.

And this would explain why so many people fail to achieve their final desired goal, because it simply doesn’t hold any importance to them!

So, I challenge you to to think about this, and think about whether your goals are your own, or a manifestation of all of the influences that you have experienced throughout your life time!

What do you truly want most in life???

Banish the Bingo Wing!!!

EXERCISE logo copy 2I am asked so frequently about how to reduce the “Bingo Wings”, so I thought I would address this situation here via a good old fashioned Blog.

So, first of all, in order to banish the bingo wing, you need to be eating a good healthy nutritious diet. And When I say “diet” I simply mean eating the right kind of foods, not restricting yourself of healthy energy and nutrients. You can find out more about What Good Nutrition is from my Blog here What is Good Nutrition? 

Then, you need to be building up some lean muscle tissue in the arm to shape and sculpt the tricep to reduce the appearance of the wobbly bit underneath. We want to reduce the body fat sat around the area, NOT lose weight (although that would be a by-product of eating a nutritious diet). Find out more about the difference between fat loss and weight loss here Fat Loss Vs Weight Loss

The Tricep is quite a small muscle, BUT there are loads of ways to work it, so Tricep training NEVER becomes boring… In fact it is my overall favourite muscle to work on.

Yes, it burns like buggery, but the changes you see in your arm definition are totally worth it.

I am going to start you with a few basic exercises to help you get your triceps firing and ultimately, if you keep up with a nutritious diet & a workout plan, you WILL see results.

So, let’s have a quick look at a few of the moves you can do to get you started.

First up, is the Tricep Extension. In this video I have completed the move in a kneeling position, as a regression to the standing position. Stabilisation is key in all exercises, so if you are starting from nothing, this is a good place to do it.

Start with a weight that challenges you, without challenge there will be no change. So I would recommend a minimum of 3kgs, possibly 4kgs. You should complete 10-14 repetitions on each arm, have a short rest and then repeat. If you REALLY want to feel the burn add in a third set.

As you gain strength and stability, progress to a standing position using the same movement.

Next up, we have the Tricep Kickback, another fave of mine. If you have a bench you can rest one knee on that, but standing like in this video is just fine.

Again, use a weight that is going to challenge you, and complete 10-14 repetitions on each arm, rest for a moment and then another set. Add a third set for a bigger burn.

Although we are focussing on the Triceps, it is always good to balance the arm, so don’t forget to do a few Bicep exercises to ensure that both the front and back of the upper arm are get some well deserved attention.

The Bicep curl is a fab addition to any workout, and just continues to shape and tone the arm beautifully.

As above, use about 4kgs for this movement. Completing 10-14 repetitions, having a rest and then repeating. Add in a third set for that deep burn.

If you do not have a Barbell to hand, or you are not working out in a gym, this exercise can be done with dumbbells or a resistance band… So no excuses.

The Press Up has always been seen as a “mans” exercise, but this is total drivel. The Press Up is a fantastic exercise for anyone, male or female, and has many benefits for women, including helping to keep that chest up-lifted.

There are many versions, and here is a slightly harder Full press up, but you can regress this movement and complete it on your knees to start with. Make sure that whether you do this exercise on your feet or knees that your body stays in line, you should have a straight line from your ankles to your hips and then on to your shoulders. No bending in the middle!!!

Try and complete 2 sets of 10 repetitions and build your strength up! If you are starting on your knees, then try and build up to doing these on your feet.

Finally, the Upright Row. Not officially a Tricep exercise, but when executed well, can have good results in the arms.

Again, this exercise can be performed with dumbbells, a resistance band or a kettlebell, so if you are not in the gym, and do not have a barbell handy, then there are no real excuses.

Complete 12-14 repetitions, have a short rest and then repeat. Make sure that you keep your core nice & tight so you do not lean back or compensate the movement. If you want a real burn, add in that third set.

Do this short workout two or three times a week, it should only take you about 20 minutes (roughly) and keep your eyes peeled for a harder Tricep Workout that I will post soon.

In the mean time, crack on. Shape those Tri’s and get rid of those pesky Bingo Wings.

Have fun!

What is Good Nutrition? 

Eat a healthy & balanced diet they say!

Make sure you are eating a good nutritious balance of food they say!

So what is Good Nutrition? 

Here’s a quick video I put together to explain just some basic points of what good nutrition is.

Food is more than just “fuel“, it’s information for the body. What we eat tells our body what to do with our hormones, whether to create one or not, whether to express a protein or not… it triggers a cascade of reactions that lead to your body using the food efficiently.

But, it also tells your story… where you’re from, who you are, what you believe in, yourIMG_7884.JPG interest in the environment, your culture, upbringing and so much more!

Food is so much more than fuel! It’s raw, data entry & information for your body! It’s power, health & vitality (by the way “vita” is Latin for life!).

The foods we eat should be nutrient dense, colourful, sustainable and wholesome.

Mindset Matters!

lifestyle Being successful in your Transformation is dependant on whether you have all elements required & in place, working for you, rather than against you.

Most people know that you need to eat well and do some form of exercise or activity, but millions still fail to achieve the results that they so crave, because they miss out the “glue” that holds everything together.

Firstly, watch this video and see some of the reasons that you may be failing.

Why are You Failing to Achieve Your Weight Loss Results? from Lesley Morrison on Vimeo.

Now, the reasons given in this video are not the only things that may be preventing you from losing weight and changing your body. There are hundreds of factors to consider.

I have created a short online course that introduces you to mindset to help you set up your initial steps to changing your body.
