“It’s another thing to do”

We’re big fans of making everything as simple and easy as possible.   As much as possible of the process is ‘done for you’.   You just need to turn up for the sessions.   There’s great support on the stuff outside of the workouts.   But, ultimately, there is, of course……….   More stuff…

Why did they always lock them in a tool shed?

I was telling my kids about the 80s TV show The A-Team the other day.   It started because my step-daughter’s Dad isn’t a big fan of flying.   And I commented that he might just be a big fan of BA Baracus.   A full explanation then had to follow (my eldest son, particularly,…

You CAN out train a bad diet

The other day in our member’s only Facebook group a couple of people commented about coming to the realisation that they “can’t out train a bad diet”   That the reason they hadn’t been getting great results, despite regular exercise, was their food intake wasn’t good enough.   And that they were making the effort…

Fear of failure making you fail more?

The human brain is a complicated thing.   All sorts of stuff runs through there on a daily basis.   Some helpful.   Some not so much.   The fear of failure is a powerful thing.   Actually, it’s the fear of been seen failing that’s usually the issue.   We try something and it…

We buy any car ad

I heard an advert on the radio the other day.   For ‘We Buy Any Car’.   The voice in it said words to the effect of “We’ll let you in on a secret. You could maybe get more for your car by selling it privately. But when we do all the work for you,…

“I tell myself I’m over you”

I was listening to the radio the other day.   “King of wishful thinking” by Go West came on.   Great song.   “And I’ll tell myself I’m over you ……..   Cause I’m the king of wishful thinking”   Wishful thinking.   Something we’re all guilty of from time to time.   Wishing something…

You could also be hung for a sheep

Another place we went to when in Cornwall last week was Bodmin Jail.   Also worth checking out.   One of the displays on the bottom floor was the ‘Treadwheel’.   A large wheel that people could be sentenced to power by climbing the outside for hours on end, in order to generate power for…

“Don’t pay extra to get in”

I was on holiday in Cornwall with my side of the family last week.   On one day we went to Tintagle Castle.   Which was brilliant!   Worth checking out if you’re down that way.   My sister had posted on Facebook asking for recommendations for the area.   With a few suggesting Tintagle.…

The fairytale ending – Gold #20?

I’m sure many of you were doing the same thing I was at 9.45pm on Saturday.   Watching the final of the Men’s 100m in the Athletics World Championships in London.   Probably hoping, like we were, that Usain Bolt could win his 20th Gold Medal (in Olympics and World Championships) in his last individual…
