  • What do you do to RELAX?

    What do you do to RELAX?

    Living life at speed, focused on work, running round after family, fitting in exercise etc means that we do everything with elevated stress levels. You might not feel stressed, you might thrive on the ‘buzz’ or even feel that you have no choice. However your physiological state is highly stimulated and flooded with hormones that are attempting to help you keep going. Unfortunately the down side is that our bodies are only meant to maintain this state for short periods of time. Think of it like a heating system that’s running on high water pressure …

  • Impressed by YOU

    Impressed by YOU

    Tracey-Anne started with Fitforlife from basics, there was a level of fear for new exercises and intensity which she has attacked and conquered with style! One example was the use of suspension training equipment. This core centred and balance based equipment requires a high level of focus and control to master, and is very challenging (and can be quite scary!). Anyone who’s tried suspension training will testify to that. Every exercise uses multiple muscle groups and is constantly demanding of the core for stability.

Of course we all know it’s down to organisation and planning so here’s a few ideas to think about, that might just make it possible or easier …

  • Did you eat your breakfast?

    Did you eat your breakfast?

    As a working parent it can be very difficult to find time to focus on your needs. I often find it difficult to prioritise my nutrition as I worry about everyone else first. I also know if I don’t eat a sensible breakfast the rest of the day can be a struggle in a nutritional sense, I end up feeling like I could eat anything and everything (the contents of the fridge between two slices of bread sounds about right!). However making sure I eat breakfast has been a struggle lately. It was when I was speaking to a friend I realised the glaringly obvious - why wasn’t I taking my own advise? It always comes down to organisation at some level, so I sat down and thought about what I needed to make my morning routine work more smoothly … Time is always a factor, as is general brain function (as I really am not a morning person). So I need to make this all as simple as possible, and find a way to make a better start to my day.

  • Dressed for the weather?

    Dressed for the weather?

    It doesn’t matter if you’re running, walking or cycling, if the weather is cold you’ll need gloves and a hat … you can always take them off if you get too warm. Dress in layers so that you can unzip, or remove a jacket if you’re over cooking! However if you’re too cold you’ve got a problem you can’t solve. Today I had a thermal base layer, short sleeve tshirt, running tights, a flourecent gilet and a thin hat - I was fine!
