Hitting A Wall | 7 Ways to Knock it Down!

Hitting A Wall - 7 Ways to Knock it Down! Gym, happiness, confidence
We all hit a wall at some point in our lives - be it with fitness, writers block, motivation... it's nothing to be ashamed off. Sometimes a little break from the norm can be just what is needed! But what is important is how you move past it. For me currently, I am tired. I mean exhausted! Long days, squeezing in everything I can & a lot of responsibility. I was in need of a little 'me time' to get me back on track. I've needed a couple of weeks to chill at weekends, have (very) early nights & just take care of myself to refresh. Before that, my enthusiasm for after work workouts was minimal & my head has just been too fuzzy to think - hence no blog posts. But just giving myself a little time - something that is so important for us all - I feel ready to dive back in with enthusiasm & energy!!!

Ditching the Scales | How I Track Progress

Ditching the Scales, How I Track Progress, happiness, strong, weight loss
So I have not weighed myself in 7 months now!!! Why? Because I hate how a small piece of metal can have such power over how I feel within my body! Yes it's exciting to see progress - like muscle gain - but our bodies fluctuate so much & we can't always expect to have a positive reading. You can't always be dropping a pound a weak! So I decided to reclaim my happiness.

Check In - Where I've been & Where I'm going - growing up, buying a house, DIY

But rest assured, it was all for a very good reason... we only went & brought a house!!! Massive tick off the New Years resolutions list. Still working on the 'be more like Kimmy Schmidt' one... must be more positive!

Ditch the Carb Cut | Learn How to Swap

Ditch the carb cut - learn how to swap - meal prep, eat clean, cooking, recipe
Is anyone else getting sick & tired of being told what they can't eat?!? It's one thing to say don't each too many sugars, or a pizza every night, but another to completely dirty a whole food group. About 15 years ago it was fat that got dragged through the mud, causing a rise in low fat diets & low fat foods. Now it seems to be carbs! And although the nutritionists have the right idea, I feel their research & knowledge is watered down so much, that it leaves the general public trying to avoid such food groups completely.
