Ep. 29 - How to make time for self care
What's the first thing that goes out the window when you're super busy with work, family, pets, social occasions? That's right... it's your self-care. It seems that, as employees or entrepreneurs, we are hard wired to burn ourselves out instead of placing our own wellbeing first. In this episode, I discuss why it's important to knock this behaviour on the head and how to go about it.

Ep. 28 - What stress does to your body and mind
Have you ever thought... "I am doing everything right and yet I am not losing weight"? You might be absolutely correct and are indeed doing all the right things, even the right things for you! But have you taken stress into consideration? In this episode I discuss why stress could well be what's preventing you from achieving the results that you want from your fatloss journey. I mention a video that illustrates what stress does to your brain, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HZXiUouqII - it's about Krav Maga and if you have zero interest in this self defense system, skip to 13 min 18 seconds for the "important part".

Ep 26 - The Lost Art of Napping and Why We Should ALL Start Practice It Now!
When it comes to self care and looking after our physical and mental health, napping is a bit of a lost art. We spend so much time chasing our dreams that we often forget to rest. Maybe we feel guilty about slowing down, but really we must remember that work and rest go hand in hand, not against each other. In the episode I mention the Fitness Planner that I created back in 2018. I recently revamped it and it's back up for sale on Lulu.com at this link: https://bit.ly/2UgH32o

Ep 24 - How alcohol affects your motivation to exercise
I recently came across an article that discussed the mechanisms through which alcohol affects our motivation to exercise. Although the research was based on dubious studies, the outcomes were nevertheless interesting and applicable to anyone who enjoys a tipple in between workouts.

WHAT WOMEN WANT PART 1: get rid of the bingo wings
When I speak to women who are unhappy with their appearance there are a few common themes that emerge from the conversations. One of them is getting toned arms and say goodbye to the "bingo wings", i.e. triceps that need a bit of work. Here is how you do it.

Ep 22 - What I actually do when I do what I do (it's not what you think!)
One of the many misconceptions that people have about Fitness Coaches is that they show up with a clipboard, stand there and count from 1 to 10 as you sweat your arse off. Although there is some of that involved in what I do, it's far from being all that I do. Listen in and if any of that resonates with you, remember that you can find me everywhere on social media as Too Old To Tumble.

Ep. 16 - 6 Strategies for healthy, quick & convenient dinners
The biggest obstacle I hear from the people I coach is that they “just don’t have the time.” Before the lockdown people were SO busy with work, families, managing a house, and the million other things that came up. And, to be fair, still do… So it’s no surprise that our lifestyle before CoVid-19 saw us often grabbing convenience food – food that not only doesn’t serve our bodies but that also ends up negatively impacting the rest of the family and their waistlines. This leads to guilt and then a vicious cycle begins. Here are 6 strategies that I use to turn that around.

Ep. 15 - What would happen if you changed your trajectory by 1%?
What would it look like for you to change just 1% of your daily habits, behaviours or thoughts? What’s the impact of a tiny 1% change? If you were flying an aeroplane and you flew off course by just 1%, there is a great chance you’d end up on another continent, let alone anywhere near the place you intended to be. As we start our initial 3 weeks of lockdown in the UK and we have more time to think and reflect, why not visualize what difference a 1% change to any one of your daily habits would look like? I would love to know your take on this! Reach out to me on social media... I am @toooldtotumble on most channels.

Ep. 14 - The other side of the Coronavirus crisis
What we are experiencing at this point in time is unprecedented... unlike previous outbreaks of flu and cold viruses the world has descended into chaos as CoVid-19 is spreading like wildfire around the world. What scares people the most is how quickly it spreads and how quickly it turned into a deadly disease for some. Take Italy for example: the first case was detected on Feb 21st and within 4 weeks 3,000 people have died, most of whom were from the same area. I am sure you have also seen the newspaper with 8 pages of eulogies for all those who perished. BUT as scary as this all is, don't forget that amidst tragedy there is also opportunity. Listen to this episode and take note of my tips for staying healthy as we face this crisis together.
