It’s quite incredible how strongly mindset affects your actions and decisions.

Here is what I told them: Get your pens & Paper ready!

Why Motivation Isn’t Enough

lifestyle

Motivation…. we all have it and we all lose it. But why?

Why do we lose the motivation to achieve the results that we want? The body that we want? The Life that we want?

If you are losing motivation and failing to achieve your transformation results, this video may explain why.

You see, we need to be more about “ME” and less about “them”. It really is time to start thinking about yourself, doing things for the reasons that you want to do them and above all, doing them because they mean something to you!

Why am I not losing Weight? 

There is literally hundreds of reasons why you may not be losing weight.

I am trying to gradually work my way through some of the more common reasons, and explain how they may be affecting your results.

This week I am focussing on Insulin Resistance.

When you think of insulin, you probably automatically think of Diabetes & discard the problem, simply because you are not a sufferer.

However, everybody has insulin, the difference between us is how resistant or sensitive that we are. Let’s just clear up, being insulin sensitive is the better side of this difference.

Let me explain in this video how insulin resistance may be slowing down your weight loss results.

As you can see if you have been eating too many sugary snacks, or maybe overeating, then this may be part of the problem.

In this case, a healthy and well balanced diet that is calorie controlled may be beneficial to help improve your insulin sensitivity.

“Healthy Recipes are so Dull” …. Really?

 I hear this so often… ” But healthy recipes are so dull!” Or “I’m bored of salads!” & “it’s all so tasteless!”

Oh come on people! Really? Is your brain so over cluttered with the crap that the media tells you, that you can’t even think up a recipe that doesn’t include something from a packet or ready prepared that tastes good?

In my 10 years as a Trainer & coach, I have heard just about every line going. When I first started training to become a PT, my tutor said “clients will use the “no time” excuse or “too boring” line to get out of anything they can, it’s the adult equivalent of “the dog ate my homework!”

Now, I took this with a pinch of salt and thought ‘surely as full grown adults, they can’t surely be using these excuses that much’. But recently, well actually, since qualifiying and starting my career, I have heard it on a weekly basis , if not once, twice sometimes even three or four times. Basically what he was trying to say to us back then was, most people are looking for the quick fix and are too lazy to actually put in the effort.

Taking the example of “the Dog ate my Homework”, I actually think that many adults shun their responsibility and accountability far more than kids do, especially when it comes to their health.

Truth is, healthy eating doesn’t need to be boring, monotonous or bland. It doesn’t have to comprise of copious amounts of lettuce, celery, rice cakes and flavourless cracker breads.

In fact, healthy eating is far more interesting, tasty and colourful than people give it credit for, and far more beneficial to our health for obvious reasons.

The fact that people do not experiment with cleaner ingredients is purely down to “it takes too long”, “it’s too much effort”, “I don’t have time”…. this loosely translates to can’t be bothered, don’t like change, believe it costs too much money…. basically…. laziness!

If you actually want to achieve your goals, and I mean really WANT them, then you will put in the effort to try. You will put in the effort to plan. You WILL put in the effort to make a positive change to your lifestyle & diet.

I Have written many Ebooks, InfoSheets and Recipe Books, many of which I give away for free to help show people that being healthy and achieving results isn’t always hard. You just need the right approach.

Can we eat better for less? 

As I get older (rapidly approaching my 40th, only a few more years 😲😬), I am starting to find satisfaction in the strangest of places. 

A few months ago, my partner and I moved from a small (very small) house with no garden, to a lovely cottage with a modest garden, which is completely decked… yay low maintenance! 

As I am something of a sun-worshipper, sitting in my new garden was proving to make me very happy, and within a few weeks I noticed that both of my olive trees were starting to thrive in their new home. Even though neither have produced any fruit yet, they are still young, it is looking likely that they may soon. 

It got me thinking… what could I grow in pots in my garden? 

I’ve already got mint growing like it’s out of fashion, so I thought Basil would be a great start… (plus basil reminds me of Greece and as I love Greek food it’s a winner). The basil has took off and grown like crazy, stinking out the garden with a beautiful scent … and cooking with home grown herbs, well you can’t get fresher. 

Then my father in law visited and gave me two tomato plants, both of which have flourished, and are looking likely to harvest some lovely juicy toms for my salads later in the summer!! 🤤 I love tomatoes!!! 

But I started to think more about this, and whether or not you could eat better for less by simply growing a few of your own herbs, fruits & veggies? 

I’m not naturally green fingered, I have to “google” everything, so as you can imagine, my search history looks pretty random at the moment, but I have some really fun experiments going on at the moment, even my partner has got in on the action. 

During a recent trip to Greece, my partner put some olive and orange pips in his pocket… not to keep but there was no where to leave them & we didn’t want to infest our room with ants, but anyway, in the midst of packing to come home, he forgot they were there (😬😲) and I found them as I was sorting through the washing. 

So…. I planted them 🤞🏻 and hoped that something might happen. Yesterday whilst tidying the garden, I had a quick look and noticed two minuscule shoots coming up from both the olive pips…. have I just created life??? 😲

Now it doesn’t stop there… because I currently have a handful of date pits to pot & a few acorns that have mysteriously appeared from someone, oh and not to forget three of the citrus family… lemon, lime & orange 😁 

So, although I am totally aware that this is a long term game, and fruits will not start to grow for a while, it’s kinda exciting… who knew I would get so much pleasure from growing my own fruits??? 

In the garden at the moment I have: 

  • Chillies
  • Olives
  • Mint
  • Basil
  • Chives
  • Tomatoes
  • Blueberries

Ready to pot & grow I have:

  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Dates
  • Acorns 

So, for those of you interested in growing your own, I am going to share the progress of this little life giving adventures via my blog, and hopefully, just maybe, these plants will give us fruits and we will be able to eat better for less! For now, that question remains unanswered in my life but I’d love to hear how you’re doing?

Do you grow your own in the garden? How have you got on and what have you grown? 

Let me know in the comments 😁

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???

What Happens When you Quit your Workout!

EXERCISE logo copy 2Are you about to give up on your New Year Resolution to get to the gym a few times a week?

Have you been skipping sessions, and telling yourself 1 missed workout wont hurt (but actually missing 2 or 3)?

Do you know what happens when you STOP working out?

It’s a well known fact that by now, many of the January Gym Joiners have unfortunately given up going. Lack of Support, Boredom, Lack of support, No change in their workouts, Lack of Support…. you get the idea! To a big Gym, you are just a number, and that number is around £40 per month (maybe more depending on the gym you joined!).

With so many people joining, how on earth are the two or three gym instructors working there ever going to support EVERYONE…. Especially when they have so much cleaning to do? Yep, gym instructors are often just glorified cleaners on Minimum wage! So, the lack of support really does have an impact on whether or not you stick with it, or stick your fingers up to it!

But, rather than focusing on whats wrong with the gym, I have already done that is my Blog about why you shouldn’t join the gym in January , let’s talk about what happens after you stop working out!

Within TEN days! 

Exercise is always thought of with regards to how it can change your body, and only a few people ever really consider how it affects and changes us mentally. Studies have found that taking even a short break from exercise can make changes to the brain function. Reducing the blood flow to the parts of the brain that mainly control memory & emotion.

Within TWO Weeks!

It only takes TWO weeks for your fitness & endurance levels to start to drop 😦 If you are a regular exerciser, and you have ever had a break through injury or holiday, you may relate to this… that first workout back after the break feels like you are starting again. And although its not quite that bad…. It feels it!

Being sedentary for 2 weeks will cause a decrease in the maximum amount of oxygen that your body can use by about 10%. This could lead to you feeling much more out of breath doing something relatively simple like going for a walk or climbing the stairs. This will only get worse as well, so the longer you stay out of action, the more it will drop! After a month it can have dropped by 15% and by three months it can further drop by another 5%.

Staying active can help, so if you can, KEEP MOVING!

If you need some inspiration for recipe ideas, then why not check out my brand new Kitchen Club. Fresh, healthy and weight loss supporting recipes direct to your inbox EVERY month! Check it out here: The Kitchen Club

Within FOUR Weeks!

Strength on the other hand doesn’t tend to reduce quite as quickly as your fitness & endurance, and it is something that differs from person to person. However, sitting around for a month will have an impact on your strength, you may experience a decrease in the amount of weight you can lift or the amount of repetitions that you can perform. Either way, do you really want to lose what strength you have gained and those signs of tone and shape? Of Course NOT!

Wishing EIGHT Weeks!

It has all gone to pot… and after eight weeks of kicking the gym kit to the back of the wardrobe, you will start to notice changes in your shape, weight and how your clothes are fitting! After 6-8 weeks, you will likely start to gain fat, which is a bummer if you worked your but off to lose it!

Try & keep active, even if you are not going to the gym try & get out & walk (see my walking workouts blog). This will at least keep you active.
