Battling Body Confidence Issues?

15th March 2020

Do you know I don’t particularly like the way I look. My body, my face nor my hair. If you asked my honest opinion on any of the above, I’d present a critical assessment of them all. My face is too round, my teeth are too big, my hair is wavy in all the wrong directions and receding, I have bingo wings, so much cellulite and a tummy that triples in size at the first sign of stress, broccoli or beans.

It’s January And About To Get Noisy!

3rd January 2020

It’s January and about to get noisy. Personal trainers will pick up the calorie deficit baton, 'Nutritionalists' lol will fill your feed with salads, smoothies, seeds and all things anti-inflammatory.
