Exercises for pregnancy

It still baffles me why people are so anti exercise during pregnancy!  I mean, it’s not like our bodies are going to get bigger, and heavier and change shape!  Oh no wait, they are going to do all of these things, so surely it makes sense to work with your body to help prepare for

Antenatal fitness

I am a MASSIVE fan of maintaining your fitness through pregnancy, and I can definitely see a change in other people’s opinions of it.  For a long time I believe people seen pregnancy as a time to stop exercising, and to ‘eat for two’.  This only leads to a sedentary lifestyle and excessive and unnecessary weight

New Year Resolutions

At the beginning of the month, I wished everyone Happy New Year, and asked the question, was people making a New Years Resolution?  The end of one year and the start of another causing people to set resolutions, that they will ‘stick’ to and be healthier, happier, crazier even?  Do things they’d never dreamed of

Damage Control

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and fun, love and laughter should be had by all.  So I don’t want to start preaching to people about what they should and shouldn’t eat/drink over the festivities, but rather, like I have been telling my clients, let’s just have some damage control in place.  We

Busy Mama

I’m so busy.  Busy with my Family; making sure they have the best time, making memories each and every day, from simple things like reading stories and watching films, to creating things and going on Adventures.  Then I’m busy at work, and don’t even get me started on housework!  I decided to set my own

If summer bodies are made in the winter, does this mean winter bodies are made in the summer?

At this moment in time, I would say yes.  This gorgeous weather we have been so blessed with getting has turned me to alcohol.  I don’t normally drink.  the occasional glass (okay, bottle) of wine in the house, or Vodka if I’m going out on a weekend, which let’s face it with a 2 and

Trim, Attractive, Active

As the summer days are upon us, it is now, more than ever that people want to look trim. People are outdoors more, socialising more, enjoying times and making memories with family and friends.  Making the most of the long sunny days, before the winter is here again and we all go back into hibernation.
