Simple smoothies- for a health kick on the go

I used to be big on smoothies a few years back but somehow lost my way with them, until recently. Being on holiday a couple of months ago they became part of my daily routine, partly to combat the intense heat and partly to accompany my gym routine each morning- it just made sense as I walked past the local juice bar every morning.

Posted on

I’ve not long returned from a great holiday trip to Singapore, where the lifestyle was easy and the culture was generally active. But this isn’t usually the case for the typical holiday and I wanted to share some tips on how to stay healthy and active even whilst you are on vacation!

New Year Planning


Posted on

Not long left to go! New Year is always the time we make new plans, whether it is to get fit, get started on a new routine, healthy diet, or lifestyle change. This offers as a fresh start after all the over-indulging over the festive holidays and interruptions to our regular routines. A break from routine is welcoming though, a respite from the normal chaos, but when it comes to an end we need a plan to get back on track.

Keeping your plans is all down to organisation and commitment. January 17th is the estimated “drop out of the New Year resolutions” date, so here I have tried to give you the tips (and the FREE PLANNER!) to make sure you are not part of that category.
