End of the Season

Category : BODY, FITNESS, GYM, LIFE, SPORT

I met Emily about a month ago at a kid’s birthday party.  That’s where we, parents, meet up these days… or during the coffee shop for morning fix. She asked if I would be okay to type an end of season blog having written my first one at the start of the season around February/March. To be honest I’ve been trying to find...

Re-Writing Your Body Code

Category : BODY

Rhona Re-wrote her Body Code and lost 3 stone. Could I do the same? No, I don’t want to lose 3 stone. But I do need to change the habits of a lifetime, and a lot may depend on it. Rhona and I started this blog back in 2014 (OMG, has it been that long already??) after an incredible season of rowing fitness and fun. Rhona, in her...

No Make Up Month

Category : BODY

In work the past few days discussions have been going the way of serious make-up chats. A colleague of mine is quite the cosmetic queen. She knows everything, has ALL (ALLLLLLLLLLL) the kit and has even taken a super serious course in it. I, on the other hand, change mascara every year (more like 2) and barely have the energy to pu...

Towards A Better Me: Part 7

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

  Lacking Motivation   The past few weeks have been really tough for me. There is a lot of stuff going on in my life at the moment. And it all has me extremely stressed out. It always feels like it one step forward two steps back. Every time I seem to make progress towards potentially having a baby, some new obstacle rears...

Wedding Day Belly Love

Category : BODY, LIFE

I have always had a belly. From as long as I can remember my belly has stuck out. I got older, hit puberty, grew a fierce rack and hips and my belly got a little bigger. Then it got a lot bigger… And then it got small again. But it’s forever been there. And I have forever had issue with it. And for years I tried to hid...

Towards A Better Me: Part 6

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

Back in the Saddle   Last week I let pain and fear throw me. But this is a new week, and it’s time to get back in the saddle. As I said before, it’s a marathon not a sprint. It is ok to fall down, it’s human. What is important is that you pick yourself back up and try again. So, I am dusting myself and getting back on ...

Towards a Better Me: Part Five

Category : BODY, GYM, LIFE

A Little Stumble   Pain and me are not great friends, we aren’t even close acquaintances. I was just never any good coping with any small niggle. So much so it’s become a bit of a running joke among my family and friends. My Ma has stated numerous times that she wants to be nowhere near me if I ever go into labour. One of my col...

Towards a Better Me: Part Four

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

Baby Steps   So this week began with me still in a whole world of pain. Two days after my first personal training gym session and I was still recovering. Stairs were the worst and unfortunately, my office is on the first floor and the bathroom another stair climb away! What hurt most was knees for some reason. I had booked my f...

To find a lump

Category : BODY

What it feels like….To find a lump. (Spoiler alert, I’m fine. These are just the things I felt and thought over the past few weeks) It’s the strangest thing, but when I found a breast lump a while back, my brain didn’t engage at all. I was getting dressed. My fingers moved around this sort of lumpiness. A sort of walnutt...
