So you are paying out good money for a PT who you assume is qualified and therefore has a good knowledge base in order to create a training program to help you achieve your goals, right? Well alarmingly this isn’t … Continue reading
I’m all for trying to match my eating to my workouts and to be honest I don’t mind saying that sometimes I can really struggle. I know what I should eat and how much but I find it really hard to … Continue reading
So I am pretty sure I should definitely be in the running for the worst blogger in the world award due to my ridiculously long hiatus!! What was meant to be a short break to deal with some personal stuff turned out to be a rather long blip when to be honest I just couldn’t face logging onto my computer and writing a single post. I am going to be brutally honest here and just admit things got a little bit (ok a lot) on top of me and I found myself drowning for quite some time. I had no intention of starting to blog again today either but all of a sudden I found that I had logged back into my account after checking my emails just like old times and now here I am fingers tapping the keys in this little rant!! So in order to have a fresh start I am just going to offer you a thousand apologies and I promise to try my best to be a better blogger! Scouts honour (ok I was never a scout but you get the idea)
So shall we start with a little catch up? Since we last spoke I have changed jobs (a lot),
went to Italy, Spain, Greece, France, Portugal, Sweden, LA, New York and Mexico in search of the best workout craze (and found it!!).
I started a new training course (exciting!!), dyed my hair at least 10 times, developed an obsession with Michi activewear (oh dear god the mesh!!), gained weight, lost weight, had a chest infection which lingered for months and finally wound up in a totally different place to where I thought I would beat this stage in my life.
So where am I now? Oh did I mention I also mention I also moved country? Well I did and I am now based back in cheery old Northern Ireland for the first time in years. I have opened my own little private Pilates studio, started a full on 8am-6pm day job and got my own place (and back with the pup!)
Its been a lot and I am still finding my way so I am inviting you along for the ride!

So many of us now spend our working days stuck in front of a computer hunched over a desk often sitting on a worn out chair with little to no support. As a Pilates Instructor I see so many clients … Continue reading
