When something in your life goes wrong, just tell “PLOT TWIST” and move on 😉
I wanted to do something today that would allow me to end the day feeling positive and a sense of pride.
Not pride in a boastful manner, but the type of pride you experience from overcoming an obstacle. Something that’s been a struggle.
So instead of giving myself a Wednesday rest day (which I can on this 4 day split program) I decided to start C25K.
I am NOT a good runner....and I don’t particularly enjoy it. But I do love how I feel afterwards....and about once a year I like to challenge myself to complete this program. Usually starting in November.....but I decided to bump it up early and give myself another goal to push for.
And while the process SUCKS while you’re in it, those post workout endorphins are SO real!! And I experience them just a little bit stronger after running.
I’ll cuss the whole time (internally) but I’m always proud of myself after. And I’m looking forward to completing this challenge again!
Who’s ready to crush down goals with me? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️ I’m kicking off a new online support group and I’m looking for some ladies to join me and work together on our goals this Fall. Drop me a like or comment if you’d like me to reach out with more info! 👇🏻👇🏻
Apple and fig crumble...the result of the beautiful apples from yesterday 🍎
Harvested in very special place just a stone’s throw from my hometown.
Now, what to make with them??
New week. Same goals.
Just a girl deciding to go for it!
That’s all it takes....a decision where you realize you’re worth the effort! 💪🏻💕
Get in touch Suzanne, you won our Facebook competition 🍾🍾🔝💯
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt. 🌳 ☀️ 🍁
That’s a wrap on week 1 of LIIFT4.
My butt was already killing me from yesterday’s HIIT so leg day today was definitely a challenge, but I’m so glad I made it my first priority today before everything else I have to get done.
Feeling so good to be back getting back into a routine and rhythm again. I’m excited to see what results I get over these next 8 weeks.
Peep 👀 my stories for a behind the scenes look at today’s workout!
UPDATE!! Earlier this year I released my single Home and donated all sales to local charity Homeplus to assist them in helping refugees and local homeless people. I did radio and newspaper interviews to try and promote it as I wanted to get as far a reach as possible.
My goal at the time was to raise £250 as the single was £1..... with your help, I managed to raise £150 which was still GREAT but £100 short.
BUT last month, some generous soul heard the song played and wrote a cheque to Homeplus for £100 giving a total of £250!
Thank you to EVERYONE who downloaded the single, there is VALUE in CREATIVITY.
Speaking of which, I’m currently working on my next release... stay tuned and continue to check out what I do because I’m never going to stop.

A phrase that is regularly said to me!!!! This week has felt very long! Does anyone agree????
I don't know if anyone actually reads the waffle you put up on Instagram but I have been informed it's the way forward so one shall persevere!
Clutter in my living space is something that drives me a little bit crazy.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE an environment that has a “lived in” feel to it. But something I have noticed is when I get busy and overwhelmed, keeping my living space organized becomes more challenging. I mean, hey, that’s life for most of us. But I’ve also found that this really seems to have a big impact on other areas of my life. My mood is more irritable, the more clutter I’m dealing with the less organized I feel in my personal life and in my business. I don’t sleep as well. And I feel more stressed out.
A couple of times a year I go through these phases where I need yo sort this crap out before it drives me insane. Maybe it’s the changing of the seasons, but I’ve had that urge SO MUCH since I got home from vacation.
So a couple of days ago I just started small....organizing small areas at a time. And already I’ve filled like 3-4 garbage bags of things to give away, donate or throw out.
Baby steps, but I’m already noticing how my mood has improved and I’m feeling ready to get back into the groove of other things I had brushed aside recently.
Does clutter affect you too or could you care less? Anyone else feeling this “spring clean” urge even though we’re heading into Fall? 🍁
The next few months are going to pass whether you choose to work on your goals or not.
And you can look back at the end of this year and say, “Okay, the first 8 months might not have gone exactly as I wanted, but I kicked the CRAP out of the last 4 and feel AH-MAZ-ING.”
You can look back on NYE potentially with regret, wondering why the hell you continue to hold yourself back, and wait to set New Years resolutions with 90% of the population that probably won’t be achieved.
Everybody’s always waiting for the “right time” to get started....but there is no right time. You just have to make the decision to get REALLY clear about what it is you want, give up all the reasons you “can’t” and freaking GO FOR IT!
And for what it’s worth.....I believe in you....even if you don’t entirely believe in yourself right now.
