My 6 Week Body & Mind Makeover Challenge – week one

A friend, let’s call her Toni, was telling me about somebody she knew who had been trying for years to shape-up and lose weight and then, after years of talking about it, she finally succeeded. Apparently this woman always looked lovely but she said that she’d put on a lot of weight going through the menopause and wanted to drop the excess pounds that she felt were making her feel sluggish and not as energetic as she wanted to be. Looking at her now super slim friend in awe, Toni asked her, “How did you do it?” Then, sat back, excitedly waiting for the secret to slimness to be spilt…”I ate less than I normally do and I started going to the gym 3 times a week,” replied Toni’s friend. “Yeah…and what else?” Toni asked. Well, there wasn’t anything else. The End…

Hypoxi Bodyshaping in Chiswick – My Review

A few months ago, I was walking down Chiswick High Road feeling a bit fed up with myself. My workload was pretty heavy and I hadn’t made time to get to any exercise classes. Lack of workouts tend to send me into a downward spiral when it comes to my mood and what I eat. In fact, my diet has been pure pants…No, no, no…I haven’t been surviving on a strict diet of Y-fronts and boxers but ‘pants’ as in ‘rubbish’ i.e., pizza, crisps, chocolate, bread, and more chocolate. Really, there has been no holds barred when it comes to carbs and sugar.

Here’s how I got on…

Figuring out the Happy Diet

Glowology Lisa on beach

Since I gave up competitive swimming at 16 – I was a National champion and had a TV appearance on Tomorrow’s World and Grandstand (yeah, I know!) – my super speedy athlete’s metabolism, used to the 5am swimming sessions and healthy lifestyle, was abruptly sabotaged by late night partying, mid-day rising, junk food and dry Martini and lemondes. Within a few months of no pool action, my hard earned six pack had deflated and my thighs expanded and I found it hard to deal with. The body that had been a treasured temple was quickly becoming a flabby bedsit and I didn’t know then, but that excess weight that engulfed my body and that I’d never had before, was going to plague me for years and years to come

I felt compelled to write a quick post on self esteem to the women or girls out there who might be feeling crappy about themselves because of the hurtful and ignorant words of Loose Women’s Jamelia. In case you don’t know, she said plus size clothes shouldn’t be available on the high street and women should be made uncomfortable when they go in a clothes shop and can’t find their size! Really. She said that.
