Week 24 – Listening to my Body

As many of you may have noticed I have not slowed down even a little during this pregnancy. If anything I have actually been working harder as it has made me more focused and more determined to succeed. Also, when… Continue Reading →

Recipe: Mamma Laura’s Cabbage Soup Italian Style

This is our first visit to Mamma Laura’s kitchen but it will not be the last! Mamma Laura is Laura Santi and is my aunt. She is someone that loves nothing more than to have a kitchen full of family,… Continue Reading →

Week 23 – Eat the Frog

Mark Twain was the first to use this phrase and the meaning behind it is to complete the most difficult task of the day first knowing that the rest of the day can only get better. I think it is… Continue Reading →

Week 22 – Planning for the Future

It can be really easy to let day to day tasks take over long term planning as those tasks are obviously more pressing, but it is important to keep an eye on the future and the direction that you are… Continue Reading →

Week 21 – 3 becoming 4

I suppose this feels like as good a time as any to let you know that Giulio and I are expecting another baby in spring 2020! We are incredibly excited and very nervous all at the same time! Having 2… Continue Reading →

Week 20 – Putting It All Together

Anyone that has tried to lose weight or get fit will know this feeling well, at any one time elements of the plan are going well but it is tough to get everything working well at once. There are weeks… Continue Reading →

Week 19 – Follow Your Passion

I have been lucky in life to always enjoy my work. Before I was a personal trainer I worked in my family business which was takeaways (I do appreciate the irony) and prior to that I was a waitress throughout… Continue Reading →

Recipe: Guidi’s “Brodo di Pollo”

RECIPE: Guidi’s “Brodo di Pollo” Guidi’s “Brodo di Pollo” was very kindly given to us by the Guidi family. I had heard about this family soup from Carina, a friend and 4321 member, many times and when I mentioned that I… Continue Reading →

Week 18 – Finding the Positives

As I discussed last week it had been a tough period of self doubt and of things not going to plan. It can be so easy at times like this to let these feelings and disappointments affect the work you… Continue Reading →

Week 17 – Feeling the Fear

I would say that September has been a pretty tough month. After my holiday I felt a bit out of sync and disorganised and work tasks have not quite been going to plan. With these ups and downs I think… Continue Reading →

Week 16 – The Holiday Hangover

I had hoped that I would feel revitalised after my holiday and in some ways I am. It definitely felt good to have some concentrated time off and, of course, to see some sun but why is it that the… Continue Reading →

Weeks 13-15 Holiday Hiatus

You may or may not have noticed that the last two weeks I have not posted a new blog post and the reason for that is that I was away on my holidays. I had actually intended on still doing… Continue Reading →

Week 12 -Pacing It

Many of the readers of this blog know me personally but for those of you that don’t you may or may not be aware that I regularly move at 100 miles an hour. I have lots of energy, lots of… Continue Reading →

Week 11 – No more all work & no play

After being unwell last week it felt great to be back to full swing this week. It was actually a good week for number of reasons. I was completely on top of all my work, I had a great night… Continue Reading →

Week 10 – Stopped in my tracks

Just when you think everything is going smoothly and you are on top of it all there is always a curve ball! Last week with a busy week scheduled, riding right on the crest of wave in terms of both… Continue Reading →

Week 9 – Never Lose Focus

Staying focused is normally something I would talk about when things are not going well as that is usually when focus goes. When someone is not getting the results they want or they are finding it too difficult to build… Continue Reading →

Week 8 -The New Normal

I wasn’t sure what to discuss in the blog this week as I would say that it has been a pretty uneventful week, which isn’t a bad thing! It was just about the process, following routine and putting in the… Continue Reading →

Week 7 – Momentum

The importance of momentum should never be underestimated. I talk to 4321 members a lot about this as success is often built on momentum and the accumulation of hard work. Working at anything sporadically will never get the same results… Continue Reading →

Week 6 – Let’s Roll

It has taken quite a few weeks but I finally feel some what in control of my life and the direction that it is taking. This is week 6 of the blog, but I was already a few weeks into… Continue Reading →

Week 5 – Progress & a Podcast

Progress is a funny thing, you normally see it right after you think everything has gone wrong. As strange as it appears I think it is largely due to the fact that after things have gone pear shaped you tend… Continue Reading →
