Off to celebrate my 27th (which is on Tuesday!) With nice food and gorgeous company! 💓 If you told me last year I'd be engaged I probably wouldn't have believed you... Me and Alex had only just started dating and he had already sent me two gifts for my birthday to the office at this point... He really spoilt me! My life has really turned around in a year and I'm so so happy!!! 💓💓
Milan was super fun. This is me getting back to my Catholic roots, Amen.
Have you ever heard or said the phrase, "I want to join the gym but I need to lose some weight first"? 🤔
It's a common phrase that I've heard many times, & it's understandable why people don't want to exercise in public when they feel unhappy or uncomfortable in their skin 👀
I wanted to discuss this, as even people who are comfortable with their bodies feel anxious & self-conscious about training in a new gym - me included! This just goes to show that if you have anxiety or generally lack inner confidence, your confidence to train WILL NOT be affected by how you look - the barrier is on the inside 🚫
If you're stuck in this way of thinking, there'll never be a "right time" to start training & you won't achieve the progress you long for 😑
I'm not expecting this alone to be enough to inspire someone to take the plunge, but hopefully it'll encourage someone to take the initial steps 👣
Here's a few points to remember if you're a new gymgoer:
📉 The likelihood of people watching & judging you is low
🤷♀️ The majority of people in the gym have no idea what they're doing, whether they know it or not
💪 It'll be terrifying to begin with but you'll feel proud & empowered for trying it
😕 Everyone was a beginner once & most will remember how scary their first session was
🏋️♀️ After a full induction you'll know how to use all the equipment safely & effectively
👭 Investing in 1-1 sessions with a coach will help to build your knowledge & confidence
❔ All members of staff should be able to help you if you have any questions
🙌 Classes are one of the best ways meet other people & learn as a group
If you're ready to start & need some guidance, DM me to request a free beginner training plan & feel free to ask any questions 😊
GOOD LUCK 🤜💥🤛
Il Forno has a new brunch menu Friday-Sunday with three dishes and unlimited prosecco (or wine) for £25. Plates range from bruschetta with tomatoes, pasta bowls and parmigiana to more exotic fare such as chicken livers with Marsala and raisins to ox cheek risotto with veal jus. We can recommend all said dishes - particularly the chicken livers and parmigiana. But what always set @ilfornoliverpool
apart was it’s authenticity. Perhaps the star dish was a simple pasta bowl with hearty, fiery Arabbiata and al dente pasta. Good ingredients, cooked well. It’s a strong proposition.
I’ve shed a little tear at these precious paw prints on the freshly vacuumed carpet 😿 Currently frozen to the bone downstairs, as we got the radiators and fireplace taken out, ready for a plasterer to start this weekend AND HE BLOODY CANCELLED. Had a new quote today that’s double the price (yikes!!) but he has cats and said he’d ring me back later because he was shopping, so sounds like my kind of tradesman 👍🏼
Spending my day cleaning, packing and getting organsied. So excited for a week away with some of my favourite people 👙🌴. 📷 @luxebandageswim

So excited to start my new job on Monday! 👜 💻 It feels like forever since I was in a proper routine; it’s been great to chill, have doggy cuddles and watch 3 seasons of Gilmore Girls in as many weeks 📺 But I am SO ready to WORK, and work hard!! 💪🏼(Remind me I said this next Friday when I’m absolutely shattered 😴)
