Week 3 | Pilates and Wellness Challenge | Christmas 2016

week 3 pilates and wellness lottie murphyWoo, we are half way through my Pilates and Wellness Challenge. How’s it going? Perhaps you’ve only managed the workout twice or you forgot the wellness task from week 1, that no phone in bed is a toughy! It’s fine, something is better than nothing but try to really get committed now. Perhaps you’ve got a few nights out booked in or work is crazy busy in the lead up to holiday season but make YOU the priority. Sleep well, eat well and move well! Week 3, let’s go…

Where 80 Minutes Of Your Day Are Going And What You Can Do About It

So it’s officially the festive season! It’s crazy how quick this year has gone so I thought I’d talk a little bit about time today because I feel like we aren’t that great at using it. In Britain, we spend 25 billion hours a year on things we admit are a bit of a waste, including social media, taking selfies and watching funny animal videos. Oops!

One Day

Maybe one day there won’t be Instagram.

Maybe one day you’ll lose all respect for your friend.

Maybe one day you’ll fall out of love with your job.

Maybe one day you’ll hate those expensive shoes you spent a month’s salary on.

Maybe one day you’ll travel to a beautiful place and feel empty.

Maybe one day you’ll travel home and feel lost.

But maybe… 

What I’ll Take Into My Life From Our Retreat

Last week I was lucky enough to be in Ibiza with Our Retreat for a week of training, healthy food, hiking, yoga, Pilates and sunshine. I taught the guests Pilates but was also able to fully immerse myself into the retreat too and soaked up lots of new information. I was really inspired to come back home and take things from retreat life into my busy London life. We can always keep learning, growing and trying to better ourselves especially when it comes to health and wellbeing; this retreat came at a perfect time for me and I wanted to share some nuggets of retreat life with you, check out my vlog too…

The Perfect Way To Power A Weekend Workout

img_6865The weekend is when a lot of my workout plans can go out the window. A brunch with friends or sorting out my wardrobe always seems to take priority but I know when I do get in a Saturday or Sunday workout I feel amazing and so much better about the huge pub roast or cocktail night. Recently however, I’ve been so excited and even looking forward to my weekend workout because it’s been powered by two of my favourite brands ever, Neom Organics and Sweaty Betty. They have come together again and created the perfect little kit to make your workout and wellbeing routine absolutely irresistible… 

Wellness Tips To Keep You Going Until Christmas

So we are still a good solid nine weeks away from Christmas and honestly I’ve been feeling a bit like I just want this year to be over so I can have a fresh new year ahead of me. I had to give myself a little talking to as I am not one to wish time away and I know I don’t need a fresh year or even a new week to start living to my fullest and achieving some goals. So for the last quarter of the year we can choose to get lazy and succumb to the Christmas slump or we can pull ourselves up, make exciting plans and feel the best we’ve felt all year because why not? So here’s some ways I think we can end 2016 feeling healthy, happy and ready to start 2017 ahead of the game…
