Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss. What’s the difference? Let’s start by defining weight loss & fat loss :- Weight Loss: You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat, …
Fat Loss: You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries. Healthy goals are 10% body fat for men and 15% for women.

Problems with Weight Loss. If you want to lose weight, it’s most likely because you carry too much fat.
1. Unreliable. Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it’s influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain
2. Irrelevant. Two people with similar height can weigh the same, but look completely different because one has lower body fat than the the other
Which proves BMI STANDARD IS FLAWED!
Weighing scales can also be misleading :- Clothes, mirrors & pics do not lie. BUT they can mislead which can seriy destroy your motivation...
Carbs & Water:- Carbs bind to water. So eating less carbs will make you lose weight: water loss. This is why you lose so much weight on a diet like Atkins the first 2 weeks: it’s mostly water. Of course, increasing your carb intake will make you gain weight again: water retention.

Muscle Gains & Fat Loss:- You’ll gain muscle while losing fat when you get into strength training. But on the weight scale it will look like you’re not making progress: your body-weight doesn’t change. Track your body fat using a fat caliper and you’ll see your body fat is going down.

5lbs muscle takes less space than 5lbs fat. That means you’ll look slimmer at the same body-weight by building muscle.
Strength training builds muscle & prevents muscle loss. It also helps sticking to your diet.
Eat whole unprocessed foods 90% of the time and eat less starchy carbs.
You can do cardio to speed up fat loss. But without strength training, cardio will cause muscle loss and you’ll end up skinny-fat. - stronglifts.com

On a constant quest for hamstrings🤦‍♀️
---
My body is in bits. My bum cheeks are in so much pain I am questioning my need to use the loo. My chest is so tight I feel like the hunch back of Notre Dame and every time I laugh I cry from the pain it causes in my abs 😫 all from one little session.
And I mean LITTLE session, light squats, light lunges, a bit of glute work... can you IMAGINE what I would have been like if I had gone all out?! Too often people believe you need to beast yourself to get any effect from your workout. You need to sweat it out and be completely smashed in order to burn calories, lose fat and achieve your dream physique.
It isn't the case. Not only that, but you could potentially be doing a lot more harm than good training, that hard, every single day.
Please make sure your training program includes a variety of sessions and take the rest and recovery you need for them to be effective! ✌️

So one day I woke up and looked mirror and saw a little chubby woman. I stood on the scales at 86kg and though I don't particularly care about the number now, I do know that it didn't feel very sexy at the time. I remember trying to do a pull up And hanging there like a sloth thinking "you're weaker than you were at the age of 10 you failing woman" (actually I'm pretty sure it was a lot less tame). The thing is, I had NEVER not been able to do a pull-up ever! And there I was hanging like a fool.
Obviously I don't think it is a failure not to be able to do a pull-up by any means! But I do think that when your whole life has been about training and fitness and you wake up one day realising you haven't exercised for years and you're twice the size you've ever been things need to change.
Fast forward a little, over -20kg off my body weight later, I tried to do a pull up with an extra 15kg yesterday... No wonder, Christ it was difficult but I'm totally counting it as a rep.
What I'm saying is. Look in the mirror today and think to yourself "is this what I want to look like in 6 months time?" Please don't make the mistake I made and beat yourself up over what you see today. But DO do something about it if your answer is "No". Anything is achievable when you set your mind to it. But you already know that! So go do it. --------

Bullying is a bitch. When a child gets bullied, they fall victim to a horrible experience the consequences of which can be detrimental for years! We have anti-bullying campaigns and those who are culprits get punished. Being called fat, ugly, disgusting are horrible things to hear and we can hardly believe anyone would say something like this to others... As a society we rightfully believe no one should ever go through being abused emotionally, physically nor verbally, no one should be made to feel worthless or ashamed of themselves.

Then WHY do it to yourself?
So many of us are looking at our flaws, feeling down telling ourselves we aren't good enough, we aren't pretty enough, we are too fat, too skinny, too ugly... if you were to say the things you say about yourself, about other people I doubt you would have too many friends. You would be the bully. So stop ✋

If you've indulged in a bit of excess chocolate this Easter don't take it out on your body. Don't make yourself a victim of your own emotional bullying and abuse. You've made choices to eat whatever you've eaten, you've now got to go back to your program and that's it. There is no more to it. ------- 👍

Day in day out I am blessed to see people do something they never thought possible.
Where my Clients turn to me for motivation, I turn to them for inspiration.

Meet Nicola. Nicola is a bubbly, very very funny and absolutely brilliant lady with cerebral palsy. She has been in a wheelchair since school and her movement is limited... For you and I the gym is simply a tool to get us where we want to be. For her it's a challenge. Every session we are faced with mini little challenges of getting into the equipment, figuring out how to use it, then getting out of it. We take it head on and NAIL it! We #fuckfear and go BEAST mode. Never a complaint, never any winging and always a smile!! She hasn't walked outside the comfort of the house for a while and when she does it's with a little help... UNTIL... I am so proud it is unreal.
If EVER you feel like you can't, or create an excuse to avoid doing something you deep down we both know you can do. Come back to this video and watch this beautiful lady do her thing 😉

I think our body image, the perception of ourselves, the way we should feel, act and behave has been dictated by society so much, that we have forgotten what it is actually like to BE ourselves.
We strive to create an idealistic image of the type of people we are and the lives we lead, and it's very difficult to accept that sometimes you just need to be you.
You need to be flawed, you need to make mistakes, you need to fall, you need to allow yourself to learn and you need to let yourself be YOU.

It is the same with relationships.
#couplegoals has had social media in awe of all these beautiful-seeming people cuddling and doing workouts together on top of a tree with fairy dust. They may indeed be very happy, but I'm sure it has come with their own unique set of hurdles. It is normal and it is OK.
One of my clients pointed out how wonderful we are together and I thought "fuck yes, we'll take over the world!" One day... but in order to do so, we make peace with the fact that if you love someone: you will argue with them, you will hate them, they will piss you off, you will slam the door in their face, you will do everything to make them happy and you will be the happiest you've ever been before ❤️ ✌️Soppiness over ----------
