So read for yourself below and take strength and encouragement that you can achieve this too.

Evening Gaynor

I know it’s late but I’ve just sat down and read this week’s blog.

They are always really inspirational and I’m not saying this note will be but what I do know is that if I didn’t start the SMALL GROUP PT and do the 21 DAY FAT LOSS PLAN I wouldn’t be feeling as positive as I am today.

14 months ago I looked at some photos of me that family members had taken and I felt totally deflated. I didn’t recognise myself. I looked bloated and unhealthy and I knew that I needed to make a change.

After taking the plunge I started the SMALL GROUP PT and loved it. All the ladies were friendly and I enjoyed the sessions even though they were tough. The nutritional advice was great and after the initial shock to the system, I found it fairly easy to follow. Although I made the most changes to my diet my family also reaped the benefits. I feel fitter and lost pounds and inches and even entered into a 5k. I loved it.

I then went on to do the 21 FAT LOSS PLAN which gave me the extra boost I needed. The reduction in my tummy fat was the biggest difference after doing this. Family and friends all commented and some even signed up. I felt great in a dress I bought for my brother’s wedding which was a nice change.

I have continued with the principles and next Saturday I am doing Total Warrior in Leeds, a 12k 30 obstacles race. I am doing it for charity which is a great feeling. I have to say I feel fitter and stronger than I have in years and whilst I still can’t say I love the way I look I feel much happier than I did when I started and I will be wearing bikinis rather than costumes on this year’s holiday!

I know I see you fairly regularly but wanted to say had it not been for you I doubt I would have felt capable of any of this. I hope that this gives anyone of a “certain age” the push they need to make that change and start your sessions.

LOVE YOURSELF

If you didn’t already know it’s Valentines Day.

So it seemed very fitting that I touched on the subject of love but not in relation to loving another person instead loving the most important person of all …

YOU

As cliché, as it sounds the first place to look for love, is within.

It’s an inside job.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all fallen prey to looking for love and fulfilment outside of ourselves.

There’s all sorts of places people go to fill the void such as food, material stuff, work or some trophy man. The list goes on!

Here’s the thing …

Nothing sticks. It’s a temporary fix.

You always end up right back where you started from and it ends in …

  • Drama
  • Pain
  • Identity crisis
  • Lost dreams
  • Bad break ups
  • Tears

And so on …

What I’ve found is you need to step back from everyone and everything.

Instead, look inside. Re-evaluate. Work on your self-awareness and recognise you were looking in all the wrong places in your quest for happiness and love.

The answer never lies in some arm candy trophy man, worldly materialism, or any other bells and whistles that life dazzles us with.

No matter how wonderful and enviable your life is on the outside if you don’t love and feel great about who you are at your core it’s meaningless.

So I’ve 2 very important words for you.

LOVE YOURSELF

Reinforce your self-worth. Take back your power.

Figure out you. What you want. What makes you happy and do it.

Learn to be independent, authentic and honour your truth.

Don’t create unhealthy attachments. Learn the art of letting go.

NEVER EVER RELY ON ANYONE OR ANYTHING TO COMPLETE YOU

So what practical steps can you take right now to show yourself self-love?

What makes you feel good, nurtures and re-charges you?

It could be some meditation, going for a facial, eating healthy food, or getting outdoors for a brisk walk.

Make a list and get to it!

Remember you’ve got me here too for support. Feel free to get in touch on 07748298728 for a chat. I’m all ears. It costs zilch, and there’s no strings attached.

One more thing …

Do I get all this self-love, self-help stuff right all the time?

Absolutely not!

I’m a beautiful work in progress. Some days I do great, and others days I stumble. That’s real.

Now I’d love to hear from you.

What’s the biggest incite you’ve taken away from today’s post? Any aha’s you’d like to share? And what will you do differently going forwards?

Can’t wait to hear from you.

BBC 100 WOMEN 2016 + 8 WAYS TO EMPOWER WOMEN

A bit of a different subject this week prompted by the BBC 100 Women 2016.

These women come from all sorts of backgrounds, industries, and cultures. Everything from activists, researchers, campaigners to entrepreneurs. Whatever their story all these women are inspirational and influential. All have astonishing stories to tell.

It’s a fascinating line up which you can read about here.

I’m a great believer in women’s empowerment and I truly believe when women authentically support one another from the heart it’s powerful and unshakable. We can move mountains. Accomplish great things. Reach our highest potential, and go further faster.

So I wanted to share with you 8 ways I believe we can all empower one another with …

  1. Compliment & Encourage

Take the time to compliment your girlfriends. Celebrate their accomplishments. Women feel more empowered when they’re more confident right?! Take for example all the wonderful B-Fit success stories here. Haven’t these ladies done amazing?!

  1. Speak Up & Stand Up

If you see a woman being mistreated, say something. Don’t ignore it. Every time a woman is belittled, it impacts each and every one of us and sends out the wrong message.

  1. Start Early

Got a daughter? Niece or granddaughter? Think about instilling a sense of empowerment in them at a young age. They need to know early on that they can do anything they set their minds to. Instilling these qualities will help create a new army of women who will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams!!!

  1. Mentor & Collaborate

If an opportunity arises to team up and collaborate on projects go for it. We can compliment each other’s skills, support and help each other.

  1. Be A Role Model

One of the easiest ways to empower women is to be a positive role model. Be confident and show them what’s possible if they put their mind to it.

  1. Watch Your Lingo

When you name call another woman, it’s not only horrible but your giving out a message that it’s ok to do this. It’s not. As Gandhi said “Let’s ‘be’ the change we want to see in the world”

  1. Accept All Women

Regardless of skin colour, religion, body size and shape, or sexual orientation we’re all kindred spirits and need to empower each other. Ditch the judgement. Choose acceptance.

  1. Be Kind

I get that not all of us are on a mission to empower women, but we all should be kind. Being kind to our fellow sisters shows the world that we respect all women.

Are you onboard? I hope so.

Let’s do this.

Now I’d love to hear from you. Who are the amazing women who support you? And who do you support? How’s it impacted your life?

I can’t wait to hear your story.
