The darkest day in our industry?

  There was a bit of a furore on Facey recently.   Well, my Facebook anyway.   An internationally well known FitPro who specialises in nutrition was outed by several women for unacceptable sexual behaviour towards them at conferences.   It was very interesting to see different people’s reactions to this.   Some trying to…

Skipping the weeds?

  With the definite turn into mid-autumn, some of you may have recently ‘put your garden to bed for the winter’.   You know – a last mow of the lawn, clear up of leaves, neatening up the borders to make it look tidy.   Little will need doing now till things start growing again…

You’re always motivated

  Ahhhh, motivation.   The age old thing we think we all need.   That we’re lacking.   That’s the answer to getting in better shape (or whatever change we’re wanting to make).   I’ll have you consider that you’ve always been motivated.   Have you ever thought “I don’t want to lose weight”?  …

“What do you eat?”

  A common question that you get asked when you’re a FitPro is “What do you eat?”   Whether a social function or by a member talking about their food.   People will often see you eating something and say “I’m surprised you eat that. What do you eat?”   I got it a few…

I may as well just resign

  You ever had to miss work due to illness or injury?   I’d assume so.   Maybe had to take a day, a week, a month or more off?   When the thing that meant your couldn’t work (the illness of injury) had gone, did you ever think “I may as well just resign?”…

Like a Sherpa?

  Name a Sherpa.   Go on!   I bet, if anything, you said Tenzing Norgay.   On of the first two men to climb Mount Everest.   Along with Edmund Hilary in 1953.   Sherpas, as I’m sure you know, often assist people on this and other similar climbs.   They help navigate and…

Cheat meals?

  So, yesterday I talked about cheating on your wife.   ————- Not a good idea —————-   Today, I’ll talk about cheat meals.   As in a meal in the week where you can go ‘off diet’ and have “whatever you want”.   Personally, I’m not a big fan of the concept.   It…

I’m not going to cheat on my wife

  My wife, step daughter and mother are all big fans of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.   So, although, I don’t particularity ‘watch’ it, I see and hear bits and am kinda aware what’s going on.   This year (and several others apparently), in case you didn’t know, one of the pairs were caught kissing.  …

Which is better?

  Which of the following is better if you’re trying to lose weight?   Pizza or salad?   Coke or water?   Cake or no cake?   I presume in each case you’ll have chosen the second option.   And, although it is, obviously, portion specific (for the first one anyway) you’re right.   Go…
