Am I going to upset you or motivate you?

I had a bad day on Monday. You know the sort of day I mean where everything seems to go wrong or events conspire against you. You ask yourself what you’ve done to deserve it. Is it bad karma or something? Have you upset someone and it’s nature’s way of getting back at you? The […]

Resolutions don’t work! Try this instead…

We’re just hours away from 2015 and you know that time has come again to reflect on the past year and set your New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t know about you, but I just don’t think New Year’s Resolutions work. Maybe you disagree but why not look back on your 2014 Resolutions and ask if […]

My 5 Prevention tips for dealing with weight loss…

It is December, isn’t it? I mean, already! I can’t believe it’s 12 months ago that I was wishing you a Happy Christmas!

I was saddened to hear about Robin Williams…

I’m a night owl and I was still awake last night when I heard the very sad news that Robin Williams had died. My initial reaction was that it must be some horrible Internet joke – you do get them unfortunately. But I checked the source and it was genuine and it was confirmed later. […]

Does my bum look big in this?

Have you said this before? There is no right answer is there – especially when a man is asked this question?!

I came up with an idea over the weekend that I’d love your help with… What I’m going to start doing is writing my emails and blog posts about topics people specifically ask me to write about. Sounds good, right? Simply tell me whatever topic you’d like me to talk about and I’ll write about […]

Don’t give up on your fitness…be one of the 5% NOT one of the 95%

Don’t give up! With ANY fitness programme, you HAVE to keep going. You have to keep going for at least 21 times and THEN it becomes a habit. It’s all too easy to find excuses not to exercise – maybe you think it’s just too difficult, it hurts, it’s lonely, you have no motivation. You […]

Are you part of this ‘Dry January’?

Hmmm, here is another media challenge for you. This one is called ‘Dry January’. It’s an attempt to make you stay sober for 31 days as part of your New Year kickstart. We have these challenges throughout the year. There is Movember, Comic Relief, Children In Need and so on. My question is ‘Do you […]

Do you mean what you write on a Christmas card?

I just received a Christmas card and it read ‘Happy Christmas to you and your family. We’ll definitely need to catch up in 2014.’ Really? Do they really mean that or are they just words? I mean, I’m sure I got the same card last year with the same message (apart from it being 2013). […]
