  • Tuesday – Full Body Circuit
  • Wednesday – 30 minute walk
  • Thursday – Weights and HIIT
  • Friday – Weights and HIIT
  • Saturday – 30  minute walk
  • Sunday – 30 minute walk

Second Trimester Pregnancy Exercise Program

I thought I would share with you all the exercise program I am about to start. I will be fifteen weeks pregnant on Monday when I begin, and I will complete it for four to five weeks. My fitness had dropped quite a lot over the course of the first trimester. Finding time to train when I wasn’t at work, exhausted or feeling nauseous or headachey was hard! Anyway, I am now loving being able to exercise more often each week. I really find healthy eating and regular exercise makes a massive difference to the

Snowboarding Davos In the magnificent mountains of Davos, Switzerland.

I’m lucky enough to have been snowboarding quite a few times, despite living in Perth, where the nearest snow fields are over 3000km away. My husband’s favourite thing in the world to do is snowboard. So, in the same way that he has spent a lot more time on holidays shopping and trying out healthy cafes then he would have ever imagined, I have spent a lot more time strapped into snowboard boots than I had ever envisioned for myself!

Glute Hypertrophy Workout

 

Here’s one of my latest workouts, designed to grow your glute muscles. You’re really going to feel it in your legs, too! I first did this workout several weeks ago in our hotel gym in Nashville. I was so sore for three days afterwards that I was hobbling around like a Tennessee cowgirl who’s spent too much time on her horse! If you’re really trying to grow your glutes, you should be training them at least twice a week, so use this for one of those training days.

my favourite fitness and health apps

Be gentle to yourself quote

I know so many girls and women who are incredibly dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle. They read blogs, listen to podcasts, buy books and go to presentations to learn all they can about the best way to eat and exercise. They are constantly in their kitchen cooking healthy food, scheduling time to workout every week and carrying around their BPA-free bottles with them everywhere they go.

Despite this, at times they can still hear the voice saying, ‘I’m not good enough’.

Are you familiar with any of these thoughts? I should

You’re probably going to think these tips are all things you’ve heard before, but I urge you not to glaze over them! They really do make a huge impact on your health and weight.

1. Do something active every day.
Find something you enjoy so you won’t skip it! Yes, resistance training and high intensity interval training (HIIT) are the most effective forms of exercise for dropping body fat, but if you can’t stand them you can still get good results from other types of exercise. The best type
