The last few months I’ve felt a little lost with training and nutrition. Stress has been high with work & studying for my sports massage exam. Nearly there now!
Back to macro tracking & a new training plan this week 🙌🏻
Looking forward to my first check in tomorrow with my coach. Even PTs need coaches to keep themselves accountable.

Sometimes sleep deprivation just isn’t funny.
I’ve been known to share a funny meme or two about sleep deprivation but something I shared recently made me think twice about who exactly would be finding it funny? I know that when my daughter was 6 months only, waking every 45 minutes, I certainly wouldn’t have been laughing. In fact, I honestly thought I was going to die from the effects of sleep deprivation. I was on my knees. I cried all the time, I couldn’t hold a conversation, I was questioning everything, I needed sleep!
Some people can survive on less sleep; I shared an article recently which outlined evidence that some people can survive on as little as four hours of sleep a night. Four hours! I imagine these are the lucky people for whom sleep deprivation can be tolerated and perhaps even laughed about and good for them. I think all parents wished they could survive on little sleep. ...
“Sleep is for the weak”, “You can sleep when you’re dead”, all things people told me when I was sleep deprived. These sentiments, although well-meaning and light-hearted, are bandied around groups of new parents like badges of honour and I know there will be new parents laughing but crying on the inside.
Yes you cannot escape the fact that your baby needs feeding in the night in the early weeks/months but this does not have to go on forever, there are things you can do and it doesn’t involve you shutting your child in a room and ignoring them. ...
I feel passionately that all parents need to know they have options where sleep is concerned, whether that be co-sleeping or sleep training or anything inbetween. To make an informed choice you need to know what help is out there. ...
Don’t suffer in silence, don’t be ashamed if you can’t survive on 4 hours of broken sleep a night. There are no medals for the surviving on as little sleep as humanly possible. Reach out, speak out and get help, it’s out there. ...

Happy New Year! Here are some home truths on new years resolutions.
According to the dictionary a resolution is “a firm decision to do or not to do something”. So, by making a New Years Resolution all you’ve done is decide to make a change. At this present stage nothing has actually changed. The next step is therefore, the most important step which many people fail to reach... you need to actually action it and commit to it.
One of the greatest problems I see with training is that people aren’t committed enough. Yes you may want to lose weight, get strong, run a 5k PB, or learn to handstand but, wanting something and committing to something are two very different things. Wanting to do something is not enough, you need to commit to it.
To summarise what I mean by this I’m going to paraphrase a section of ‘The Chimp Paradox’ written by Steve Peters that discusses motivation vs commitment.
‘Motivation is a feeling based on emotion and it generally happens when there is a great reward to gain or when you are suffering so badly that you want things to change. It is unrealistic to expect to feel ‘motivated’ every day. Commitment on the other hand does not depend on feelings. It means following a plan even when you don’t feel like it. In essence motivation doesn’t matter, yes, it is helpful to drive us on but, it is not essential to success and it is commitment that is needed to see a long term goal to it’s end.’ This, in my eyes, is one of the biggest barriers to training that can be covered up with a lot of different excuses. Do I want to train everyday? No. Some days I wake up and literally drag myself to training. But, I go. I always go. I have a training plan to follow and I will get it done no matter what. It’s a non-negotiable in my life. It’s a habit, like brushing your teeth. You just do it. Whether you want to that day or not. This is how you make long term change and increase your chances of success.
