Example of my Daily Meal Plan

I get asked a lot by friends, family and clients for a meal plan or examples of what I typical eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and as I’m not a qualified nutritionist or dietitian I cannot give people individual diet plans however I do believe I have a lot of knowledge on nutrition and what the right things to eat are. I notice where people go wrong in their diets and I am happy to give advice.

I am very passionate about changing your lifestyle gradually, I don’t agree with restrictive diets and I would never suggest cutting out a food group to anyone.

Day at The Museums

Toni and I

I’ve been craving culture for the last month, mentioning how I wanted to go to museums and galleries to my boyfriend, parents and friends. When I finally decided on a day to go, the only takers were my friends Toni and Chloe. So on Friday, we ventured out in the wind and rain to London to take on some culture.

First stop was The Tate. Now, Toni and I get extremely excited about things that most normal people don’t. For one, we spent the first 10 minutes excited about the fact we entered the gallery through the side entrance with a big slope rather than the front entrance.

Making your Hopes and Dreams a Reality

Some people settle for okay. Some people are happy to live a life which is ‘just fine’ and that’s good if you’re happy with your life and not always thinking ‘what if’ or ‘I wish I had more of this or done more of that’. You can also let every day life get in the way of what you hoped and dreamed for. What did you want to be when you were a teenager? Where did you want to live? What did you see yourself doing day to day? Why didn’t you pursue it, maybe you didn’t want it anymore or maybe you just let life get in the way?

Family

Christmas is a reflective time, a hard time, a happy time. Presents under the tree, turkey in the oven, excitement in the air. Each year, a different story, change, lots of change, ambitions for the new year. What will we do differently? Where will we be? Who will we be? One thing remains- family. Love, honesty,…

Fashion Post- LBLD!

LBLD is the little black leather dress! My go to outfit is always black. You’ll know by my wardrobe as I own 3 black leather jackets and 5 pairs of skinny black jeans. I think you can’t go wrong with a LBD and leather is everywhere at the moment. With a LBLD you’ll feel safe, sophisticated but on trend as well. Here’s a few of my favorites on the high street at the moment.

The Holidays are Coming and so is the FOOD and BOOZE!

all-i-want-for-christmas-is-a-good-nights-sleepI’m a healthy eater, you may have guessed, but if you know me well you’ll know I have a sweet tooth and I do let myself off and have a pizza,takeaway or cake sometimes! Mmmmm cake! Most of the year it’s easy to manage as there’s only one occasion or outing a week where unhealthy eating/drinking is generally required and the rest of time I love to have a clean varied diet. It makes me feel good and feeling good is damn good!

Now there’s something about Christmas which makes staying balanced oh so much more difficult. For one there’s the numerous Christmas lunches, dinners and parties, the constant flow of celebration chocolates, the work drinks, mince pies, advent calender, then there’s my constant need to bake desserts when it’s cold and this is all even before the big day! 

What I’m Loving…

1) Fresh Air- Normally each year I try to avoid going out in cold air as much as possible as I become a grumpy bear when I’m cold. This year I am totally embracing the crisp cold weather and enjoying taking walks in the fresh air. Fresh air doesn’t do wonders for your hair but it does do wonders for your mind!

My Yoga Experience

My first experience with yoga was Bikram yoga and I can definitely say it wasn’t love at first pose. The room was way to cramped, the stifling heat and repetitive poses weren’t for me. I know that a lot of people are hooked on Bikram but I needed to continue my search to find love.

I left my yoga practice for a while as I fell more in love with Pilates and my teaching training however after qualifying as a Pilates instructor and teaching/doing hundreds of classes I felt I needed to move my body in a different way and take a class where I wasn’t in ‘teacher mode’. This is when an amazon deal for 10 yoga sessions at Yotopia Yoga in Covent Garden came up and I thought perfecto lets get going again!
