My client retreat day 4 - we experienced Tibumana Waterfall, embodying the spiritual energy and wonder of Bali๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’ซ.

Falls evoke a sense of awe and upliftment in many ๐Ÿ’–.

Amid life's hustle, we often overlook their profound impact ๐Ÿž๏ธ

Yet, for those who pause and immerse themselves, waterfalls offer a gateway to spiritual expansion ๐ŸŒˆ.

Today we tuned I with the unseen realms of the water and the flow of vitality and life that came from it...
...today we find validation and deeper connection through these majestic cascades ๐ŸŒŒ

Liminal spaces like waterfalls offer glimpses into the transcendent, enriching of our spiritual journey

And the physical and emotional lightness that is realised when we leave our fears to fall...

Entering peri-menopause, I thought I had a grasp on what to expect.

Hot flushes and night sweats seemed manageable, but nothing prepared me for the rollercoaster of symptoms that ensued. ๐ŸŽข

The onset of severe migraines, leaving me disabled for 24 hours every fortnight, caught me off guard. ๐Ÿ’”

I anticipated irregular periods, but not the relentless bleeding three weeks out of four, or the excruciating period pain that left me seeking relief from a sympathetic GP. ๐Ÿ’‰

Dizziness and nausea became unwelcome companions, demanding frequent breaks throughout the day. ๐Ÿ˜”

Emotionally, I felt like a stranger to myself. Crying at the drop of a hat, boiling with irrational rageโ€”it was as if my emotions were on a tumultuous rollercoaster ride. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ก

No One Told Me it could be like this.

The lack of awareness about the severity of these symptoms left me feeling isolated.

Had I known, I could have better navigated the challenges and minimized disruptions to my life and relationships. ๐ŸŒŸ

From forgetfulness to weight gain, the list of minor yet impactful side effects seemed endless.

But through it all, I've learned the importance of self-care, advocacy, and seeking support from fellow warriors on this journey. ๐Ÿ’ช

Let's break the silence on peri-menopause and empower each other to navigate its complexities with grace and resilience. ๐Ÿ’–

You are not alone.

Exercising in peri-menopause is SO important BUT is like trying to wrangle a herd of catsโ€”sometimes it feels like you're herding thoughts more than movements! ๐Ÿฑ

One minute you're power-walking like a pro, the next you're convinced your yoga mat is secretly a banana peel. ๐ŸŒ

It's all part of the adventure!

Just remember, even if your jumping jacks resemble more of a gentle sway, every step counts. ๐Ÿ’ƒ

And hey, if you accidentally mix up your Zumba moves with interpretive dance, just own it! ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Menopause may throw some curveballs, but laughter and a little shimmy-shake can make any workout a blast. ๐ŸŽ‰

Let's get sweating and giggling, because who says fitness can't be fun, especially when you're dodging hot flashes like a pro! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

So prioritizing movement and sleep, nurturing your liver health, and maintaining muscle tone are all key strategies for managing peri-menopause-related weight gain.

If youโ€™re tired of ineffective diets and workouts, itโ€™s time for a new approach tailored to your bodyโ€™s changing needs.

By addressing everything holistically from sleep to nutrition, and lifestyle factors, we can empower ourselves to navigate peri-menopause with grace and resilience.

Join me on this journey of discovery and transformation. Together, we can embrace peri-menopause as a time of growth and vitality, rather than a battle against our bodies.

Hereโ€™s to thriving through menopause and beyond!

10/04/2024

๐Ÿšจ ATTENTION LADIES ๐Ÿšจ Here's your playbook on how to handle the mid-life midrif "none of my pants fit" belly spread, that we spoke about yesterday! ๐Ÿ‘‡

1. **Know Thyself**: Get checked out by your doc to rule out any sneaky health issues. Thyroid, iron, B12โ€”let's make sure everything's running smoothly under the hood.

2. **Say No to Crash Diets**: Restrictive diets? Ain't nobody got time for that! Let's keep those bones strong and our metabolism humming with a balanced approach to eating.

3. **Chow Down, Not Around**: Opt for regular meals over constant snacking to keep those blood sugar levels in check. Your pancreas will thank you.

4. **Carb Conscious**: Consider a lower carb approach to keep hormones in check. Think balance, not deprivation!

5. **Sleep Tight**: Prioritize quality shut-eye to keep cortisol levels in check and cravings at bay. Plus, who doesn't love a good night's sleep?

6. **Get Moving**: Exercise isn't just for the young'uns! Find activities you enjoy and mix it up to keep things interesting. And remember, lifting heavy stuff is not just for the gym brosโ€”it's for us badass midlifers too!

7. **Veg Out**: Load up on fruits and veggies to keep your gut happy and your cravings in check. Chocolate is still on the menu, of course! ๐Ÿซ

8. **Listen to Your Body**: Embrace the changes and explore what works best for you. Maybe it's time to trade in those high-intensity workouts for some gentle yoga sessions. Your body knows best!

9. **Total Health, Total Win**: Remember, it's not just about the number on the scale. Focus on overall health and happiness, and let the rest fall into place.

10. **Talk It Out**: Don't be afraid to chat with your doc about hormone replacement therapy or supplements. It's all about finding what works for you!

And finally, don't forget to savor the journey! ๐ŸŽ‰ Life's too precious to fret over a few extra curves.

Here's to embracing every twist and turn, finding pants that hug in all the right places (eventually),

Cheers to you! ๐Ÿฅ‚โœจ

Can we just talk about the midlife pants struggle for a minute? ๐Ÿฉณ๐Ÿ˜‚

I used to be a proud member of the "most of my pants don't fit" club after my 70lbs weight gain, and I'm here to say, it's not just you!

And let's be real, it's not about vanity (okay, maybe a little), but who wants to drop serious cash on a whole new wardrobe?

๐Ÿ’ธ My wallet's crying just thinking about it!

So here's the scoop: perimenopause and menopause are like a rollercoaster ride nobody asked for. ๐ŸŽข

Hormones are playing a game of musical chairs in our bodies, and guess what?

We're the unwilling contestants. Estrogen, progesterone, testosteroneโ€”all taking turns wreaking havoc on our metabolism, energy levels, and even our post-workout bounce-back time.

It's like our bodies are saying, "Surprise! Here's some extra weight, and oh, your favourite jeans? Yeah, they're not happening today."

But fear not, my fellow midlife mavens! ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™€๏ธ

Instead of drowning our sorrows in chocolate (okay, maybe just a square or two), let's band together and tackle this adventure head-on.

Because let's face it, nobody talks about this stuff enough!

So what's the deal with the midlife body takeover? Well, hormones are the main culprits here.

They're like the maestros conducting a symphony of changes, from weight gain to metabolism slowdowns. And let's not forget the joy of nighttime hot flashes, turning sleep into a distant memory and sending our cravings into overdrive. ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ”ฅ

But hey, it's not all doom and gloom! There are ways to navigate this wild ride with style and grace (or at least a sense of humor).

And last but not least, remember to enjoy the ride! ๐ŸŽ‰
.. So here's to embracing the journey, pants that fit just right (eventually), and plenty of chocolate along the way. Cheers to us, fabulous midlife ladies!

๐ŸŒŸ Women over 40 who've been stuck in the diet cycle for ages! ๐ŸŒŸ Ever muttered, "It doesn't work for me"? ๐Ÿฅฒ

I've been there.

So you've tried every diet under the sun, right?

From the green tea cleanse to the "lick a crisp" fad (yep, i've heard it all).

But after a few weeks, it's back to square one, feeling even more defeated. ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ Sound familiar?

I totally get it. ๐Ÿซถ You're not alone. Many of my clients have been exactly where you are.

And tbh, I was there too back in 2016! 70lbs heavier, hormonal and thouroughly peed off with my body's refusal to change.

You've probably convinced yourself, "I'm not good enough," or "I can't shed these pounds."

But guess what? You CAN. ๐Ÿ’ช

Yes, read that again. You CAN do it. ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

But here's the thing: maybe it's not YOU, maybe it's the method.

Ever thought about trying something different? ๐Ÿค” Something built on solid ground, trust, and, most importantly, RESULTS?

What you need is a roadmap to success. ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ With support, accountability, and a dash of care along the way.

No more wheatgrass shots, promise. ๐Ÿ˜‰

With Un-Meno-Pause Your Life, I coach YOU, right where you are.

All programs come with meal, exercise, and supplement plans, 24/7 accountability, and supportโ€”all from a woman who's been through the diet cycle herself.

Say hello to toned muscles and a flat belly! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Ladies, listen up! It's time to embrace the iron and pump up those weights! ๐Ÿ’ช

4๏ธโƒฃ Confidence boost: Strutting around with newfound strength? It's not just a physical transformation; it's a confidence overhaul! ๐Ÿ’ƒ

And hey, let's debunk a myth while we're at it: Weightlifting does NOT make you look like a man! ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ’ช It's about sculpting your body to be the best version of YOU.

๐Ÿ˜‡ I've been really good with food ๐Ÿ˜‡
๐Ÿ˜ˆ I've been really bad with food ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Does feel like a battle youโ€™re set to lose? Well hold up for some home truths ๐Ÿ‘‡

People assume my job is to be part of the food police squad, passing judgment on what people put in their mouths

That couldn't be further from the truth.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Oftentimes, family and friends play that role for me โ€” more than once I've been called out by friends for enjoying a slice of bread with butter or ordering a pasta dish for dinner (insert eye roll here).

Comments like this have everything to do with diet culture...
..which promotes feeling ashamed about how you eat and links thinness and even specific foods to moral virtue.

๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ“๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ• Demonizing certain foods or even whole categories of food ("carbs are bad for you") is everywhere and I find it upsetting to see so many people buying into this mentality.

Why?

โค๏ธ Because it can have detrimental effects on .

๐ŸฅณThis includes taking pleasure in eating and not feeling like you've constantly messed up if you ate the wrong thing.

Does eating white bread make me a bad person?

Of course not.

You can enjoy white bread and some of the most delicious foods in the world and still lead a healthy life.

๐Ÿ’ฅ isn't a moral issue ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Make no mistake here โ€” I will always encourage you to make nutritious choices to benefit your overall body and holistic health.

While there are no "bad" foods, it is of course true that certain foods don't provide much physiological benefit to the body as others.

โŒ๏ธ But that doesn't mean we should form strict and rigid rules around avoiding those foods for the rest of our life or attaching morality to food.

๐Ÿ’กYou are not a better person if you eat a more , and you are not a worse person if you eat something that is less nutritious.

When we label foods as "good" or "bad," even "sinful" or "forbidden," we're giving that food too much control and power

Listen to your body;
..if you are craving a food and want to enjoy, then know it's okay to eat in moderation without judgement.

1 meal does not define your .

๐Ÿคฏ Balancing life as a woman is bloody hard!

๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ And it comes along with a side serving of "guilt" for good measure!
You know the guilt, that says when I'm working I SHOULD be exercising.

When I'm exercising I SHOULD be with my family.

When I'm with my family I SHOULD be cleaning and doing housework and life admin

When I'm doing life admin I SHOULD be working..
We constantly fall back to these "shoulds" of life, ending up becoming more and more stressed about meeting our own expectations of ourselves.

๐Ÿ’” Ultimately happiness is killed by expectation

So if you truly want balance in your life, it is about being present in each moment.

Stop expecting and start being
If you are at the gym, be present in the workout ๐Ÿ’ช

If you are at the computer, be present in your work ๐Ÿ–ฅ

If you are with your family, be present in their love ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ

If you are doing the chores, be present in the dishes ๐Ÿคฃ
If you need some help to stop expecting your body to change
.. and start to BE the change, then pop me a message with the word "BE"

And let's have a chat about creating balance in your life.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Do you hold all your tension in your neck? ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Do you grind your teeth or get headaches and scrunch up your shoulders when the stress hits?

This is common for SO many women, especially when...

The work deadlines are looming

The house is a STATE!

The kids are screaming

The buttons won't do up on your shirt

The hubby is passed out on the sofa

The dishes need doing

The food needs cooking

The boss needs replying to

The clients are demanding things now now now

The birthday party needs organising...

I mean ... I could go on right?

This was exactly the feeling for a client I have been working with. She had never been able to get rid of the hunch in her shoulders.

But with a few posture corrections? We were able to make this change ๐Ÿ‘‡ in just 1 hour.

If you struggle with neck and shoulder stress...

And that's exactly why I'm here, visiting my clients all the way from the UK to the US.

I was asked many times, why did I choose San Antonio for my conference yesterday.... when it would have be 10x easier to run it in the UK?

And the simple answer is all of you.

You, my clients.

I have many in Texas and it is my honour to come serve them here, in their homes.

So I fit my work in around them.

That's my ethos as a coach.

To be HERE for you, not just over there for you.

Clients come first โค๏ธ

๐Ÿ‘ญ If you want a coach who is HERE for you, who sees you...

pop me a message with the word "HERE" and let's get to know each other ๐Ÿฅฐ

Let's talk about how intimidating it can feel to be a woman in a gym, or as I like to call it, "gymtimidation"... ๐Ÿ‘‡

Although I now "look" like someone you would see at the gym, I didn't always.

And I always felt so intimidated by the big heavy machinery, the "gym bros" flexing in front of them, and the women who were much fitter than me.

For a long time, it really put me off working out.

But I realised my goals were more important than my insecurities, so here's what I did to fix it:

๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I put together a small home gym, so I could build up my fitness. This doesn't have to be anything extravagant or expensive. A couple of weights and going for daily walks is more than enough!

๐ŸŽง I'd save my favourite podcasts or audiobooks for when I was at the gym, that way I'd be so focused on what I was listening to and what I was doing, I didn't care what others thought

๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ I worked with someone. Having a coach with you will really help you to abandon the intimidation because you're getting step-by-step care.

I know it's easy to say "No one cares what you're doing in the gym! They're not looking at you", and that is 100% true, but it doesn't mean you always believe it.

Make small tweaks to make yourself feel comfortable and I promise you'll get there.

Need more help? I'm always here. Send a DM if you'd like a chat!

In honour of , I'd like to share with you a bit about me and my history with food...

When I was 13, I became anorexic.

I went to an all-girls private school (not because we had money, but because I got a full scholarship). There, I was severely bullied for my weight, acne, and background.

I started only eating watermelon and got away with it for almost a year. I went from 5โ€™2 7.5 stone down to 5 stone.

I ended up collapsing on the school hockey field and had to be brought back to health essentially. It stunted my growth and my breasts, hands and feet stayed tiny due to disrupting puberty.

I never grew any taller either.

It created such a destructive relationship with my body when that happened and it took me a long time to learn to love my body again, all based on the comments of some bitchy teenage girls.

๐Ÿ‘‰ That's why I'm SO passionate about what I do now. Because it took me years to feel better about myself, and when, as a woman, you're surrounded by negative messages about your body

"Special K diet!", "Cellulite is disgusting", "You should only wear leggings if you have a thigh gap"

I know it's so easy to start hating your body, and as a result, focus on restrictive eating that can eventually lead to eating disorders.

To come from being that 13-year-old girl who despised her body, to a health and fitness coach who enters bikini competitions and helps other women to love themselves is something I am so proud of.

Thank you ๐Ÿงก

What motivates you to stick to your goals? For me, it's my family ๐Ÿ‘‡

Having struggled with cancer, endometriosis and a whole host of other issues myself, watched my son be unwell since he was born, and other loved ones have chronic and long-term illnesses...

I know that sometimes, our health is just beyond our control.

๐Ÿ‘‰ But it's for that very reason I try my best to optimise the parts of my health and fitness that are part of my control.

To stop the risk of bad things happening. To be around longer for my kids, and eventually grandkids. To be able to be present, to get involved with games, and be the rock when my family needs it.

And in the moments where I feel like I "can't be bothered", this is what I remember.

Tell me, what is your biggest goal and the thing that motivates you towards it?
