Training in Phuket, Thailand

It’s been 7 whole days since I hopped off the plane at HKT with my dream and cardigan… In case you didn’t see my previous post, to end my travelling around South East Asia, I’ve come to Chalong, Phuket, to the famous “Fight Street,” the Soi Tai-Ied to train for five weeks. I’ve always wanted to…

Titan Fitness Training Camp, Chalong, Phuket

I’ve been in Phuket for less than 24 hours and I’ve just had my ass handed to me on a platter, thanks to trainers Evalina and Mitch at Titan Fitness. Most people come to Phuket to party…I’ve come on a 6 week training holiday, because goals. I’m staying in Chalong, Phuket on a street known…

#NTCTourSyd

At the beginning of May, I attended one of the infamous Nike events – to promote their app Nike Training Club (get it if you haven’t already – you can read my thoughts on it here, here, and here). Nike went touring around the world with their Global Trainers, to put on a day full…

The Body Coach – Week 3 & 4

I’ve almost come to the end of Cycle 1 on The Body Coach! I’m quite nervous about ending the cycle – there’s been a lot to get my head around and I’m not sure if I want to shake things up for Cycle 2! And if I’m honest, I’d be lying if I said I…

The Body Coach – Week 2

Week two, done. Done & dusted – probably not. I’ve decided to make four meals and switch them around this week – low carb oatmeal, protein pancakes (high carb, for after HIIT), salmon fishcakes and paprika prawns. My favourite(s) of the four were definitely the oatmeal and the prawns! I made the pancake batter in a…

The Body Coach – Week 1

Food, glorious food. This is what the SSS plan should be really called. Everyone says it but…you’re eating a LOT of food. This week has been an emotional roller coaster – I’m SO BLOATED I fear I look, and I feel like an inflated balloon. I mentioned in the first post that I wanted to get back…

The Body Coach: 90Days SSS Plan

Everyone’s talking about Joe Wicks – the total fittie and founder of the 90 Day Shift, Shape & Sustain nutrition & exercise plan. I didn’t really know who he was but my TIDs did, and when I finally got involved, after I’d picked my jaw off the floor, stopped perving on him and stopped creasing…

How Running A Half Marathon Changed My Body

Almost three weeks ago now I ran my first half-marathon, the Vitality Run Hackney Half. Before I started training, I had some pretty lofty visions of what half-marathon training would do to my body. I envisioned myself as a tall(er) warrior princess, with legs like a racehorse and buns of steel. For seven weeks, I…

13.1 Miles – Run Hackney

I bloody well did it. I ran a half marathon…! If you read my previous training post, you’d know that the tapering was getting to my head and wigging me out a little bit. To say I was nervous for this race was an understatement. The night before I barely got any sleep; I woke…

The Ugly Side of Weight Loss

When you lose weight, you change as a person. You stand a little taller. You wear clothes you wouldn’t have dared to before. You’re more confident, and it shows. If you lose weight a healthy way – it’s apparent in your physical health too. You may be glowing; you suffer less frequently from the common cold.…
