I always look forward to the school holidays and getting to spend extra time with my little girl, but with the summer break comes a need to juggle and arrange childcare and as a working parent, often feel guilty.
The term ‘body confidence’ is frequently in the press, and I’ve found over the last five years especially, that I discuss the topic more and more with my personal training clients as it becomes more of a significant issue for more people.
Four years ago, when I sat in front of the very scary Lord Sugar on BBC’s The Apprentice with a business plan for a healthy eating restaurant in Sunderland, not only did he not believe in the idea, other people told me I’d maybe missed the mark with it too.
I always love to hear stories of people giving their time, effort and energy to helping others and taking part in charitable events, so last week when I spotted the incredible efforts of three people at The Stadium of Light, I knew it was a must-mention in this week’s column.
Like most people, I spend a fair amount of time using social media, and as a lover of all things fitness, I always like trying out new YouTube video workouts and browsing fitness accounts on Instagram.
