Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Remember, life is an echo. It always gets back to you.
My week didn't start well! On Monday it took me 2.5hrs to get to Darley Abbey. I was there 45mins before heading back to work 🤨. Before the evening sessions started, I managed to fit in a 45min gym session - better than doing nothing! I completed 4 sets of lat pull down & incline … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 8 Time Out.
My weeks at the moment start with an early Monday morning trip to Darley Abbey, Derby - leaving the studio at 6.30am for a 2hr 'drive' - generally a slow crawl in traffic. Thankfully the lighter mornings are on their way and I'm now able to enjoy the sunrise for part of my journey rather … Continue reading More Than An End Goal: Week 7 Do what works for you.
It's the halfway point! I'm about 6 weeks into my challenge...so far so good! There's nothing I'm doing that I don't feel I can't continue long term - yes I've cut out (although not completely) sugary foods, but it's not like I had a daily bar of chocolate anyway? Although I could be swayed by … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 6 Half Way!
So Week 5 came and went with the blink of an eye! Work and study has made it a little more challenging to get my training done this week. But I've managed daily strength and abs, with one rest day (with the exception of some legs and abs work!). Scrolling through Face-ache on Monday and … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 5 But first, love yourself.
Week 4 done and dusted. A good week for training and nutrition. Monday is my rest day from cardio so I got a good strength session completed between staff training in Derby and working. At the start of Week 1 of my challenge, Mark introduced me to back squats. I have trouble with progressing many … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 4 Snacks and Lattes
I'm now at the end of the 3rd week of my challenge. Thanks to all of you who are asking how I'm getting on. It's prompting some good discussions, mainly around food! On Monday I was asked if I'm hungry all the time. That's a big fat NO! I'm not on a calorie restricting diet. … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 3
Online coaching has really boomed in the last few years and I do offer both in-house and online coaching myself. With the likes of Skype, Zoom, sharing files online, data sharing and daily communication being so easy, coaching clients is much more manageable and productive. Coaching can work for everyone from a plan based around … Continue reading Coaching is about balance.
I'm now at the end of Week 2. Coffee is down to 2-3 cups per day. I still have the white stuff though, not ready to shift to the dark side and have it black! A step too far for me and not necessary. I've had a good training week. Monday was cardio-free and I … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 2
Personal Training and how it works. Firstly it provides that much needed accountability. For me personally, I enjoy having a personal trainer myself. It removes the thinking and I can just turn up and give each session my best with support and guidance from my trainer. It's all about the WHY: why do you want … Continue reading Personal Training
