My Never Quit Home HIIT

I don’t have a treadmill. I don’t even have access to a treadmill.  I could do sprints outdoors but timing this around my baby is difficult and living in the UK with its unpredictable rainy weather makes outdoor HIIT less than preferable. The BBG program introduces HIIT (high intensity interval training) in to your workout…

June Goals

Hello June I can’t believe we are already half way through the year! May flew by in the blink of an eye thanks to The BodyPower Expo and my trip away with James and Moo. I feel like i set off on my travels at the beginning of May and I arrived home to find…

The best sports bra for bad boobs.

  I’m so sorry for the title but writing it any other way just didn’t cut it.  I have bad boobs, no make that terrible boobs.   After exclusively breastfeeding two babies for 6 months each my (originally) 34D boobs shrivelled up to nothing and just left two empty sock looking sacks that need some serious…

Working out with limited equipment

When I began working out at home I started with very limited equipment An exercise mat A skipping rope 2 x Ikea footstools (to use a box/bench) 1 x 5kg kettlebell These 4 items got me through twenty four weeks of Kaylas Itsines BBG program and two full rounds of BBG1.0 I hope it shows…

My Beach Getaway Essentials

So next week is my upcoming trip to the gulf coast in Florida. I’m so excited to be getting away as a family, I can barely sleep. As mum, housekeeper, washer, childminder and chief of stuff no one else wants to do – I am in charge of packing for EVERYONE.  So in an attempt…

What to do when it’s not working.

We’ve all been there at some point.  There is nothing more upsetting and frustrating when you are putting in the work everyday and you don’t see results.  It could be a plateau after a few months of working out or it could even be that right from the get go nothing you do seems to…

Tuck jump mini challenge

Hey lovelies! I’ve set my self a new mini challenge this week.  TUCK JUMPS I’m pretty bad at these in general.   Being tall, long limbed, quite gangly and lanky, when I perform a tuck jump I genuinely look like someone tossed a pan of spaghetti into the air. Anyway, I was reading up on…

How to feel motivated every day.

“Motivation may get you started but it takes discipline to keep you going.” While I do agree with quote above I am still constantly looking for motivation along the way and still can’t rely just on discipline alone. I find, in my journey that actually, one can’t exist without the other. The basic definition of…

April Goals

Even though it’s already the middle of April, with BodyPower UK only 4 weeks away and a disconcerting feeling that I am letting a lot of little things slide. I’m taking a moment to recommit to my goals and set some new intentions.   Every accomplishment begins with the decision to try. HIIT Going back…

BBG Wales Meetup April 2016

#SQUAD The best day ever and one of the greatest feelings.   Being part of an amazing  group of women who all came together one Sunday morning to meet, sweat and channel their inner badass girl boss. I hope you love the photographs as much as I do.  I think they really show what a…

Mini Modifications to Stop You from Quitting.

BBG is hard and there are no adequate words to describe how difficult I found BBG1 in particular. I was out of shape; I had no strength, no stamina and no discipline. Even towards the end of the 12 weeks getting through each 7 minute round was a struggle and quitting must have crossed my…
