I’ve put some timber on.
Since starting out in business almost 11 years ago now, I’ve put some timber on.
And right before this, I quit smoking and I’d already put on some weight through having less to do with my mouth!
It’s been gradually creeping on and though I was kinda aware of it. I mean I WAS aware, just not quite the extent of it. Add that to being middle aged (yes I finally admit it) and well, it’s long over due that I do something about it.
Thing is, what used to work to shift a bit of excess human back when I was in my 20’s (only feels like 8 years ago or something) just doesn’t cut it now. And I KNOW it’s about lifestyle…🙄 and there lies the problem. I don’t really want to change my lifestyle. Well, I do now, but until very recently, I did not!
My last chat with my coach brought up some stuff from years ago. My emotional eating down to losing my mum when I was 14 and not really having anyone to talk to about it. I was suddenly finding myself alone more often as my dad was at work and I’d spend my pocket money on chocolate mostly, to cheer me up. To eat my feelings. To push them down and coat them in chocolaty goodness. And who was gonna stop me? I was in control of whether I ate junk or not now. I had some control over something in my life, after feeling like I had none.
I’ve had a few occasions in my life when I used will power and managed to get quite slim. But will power, like motivation and bathing, don’t last!

No, it does have to be a lifestyle change. It has to be something you just do. Not do for a few weeks or months and then stop.

I’m ready now, to make the change. I’m creating habits of working out. Doing things I enjoy like going in the home gym (yes, I have one but wasn’t making much use of it before) Music makes everything better, so I’m blasting the old choons! I’m drinking more water (still not really enough, but baby steps!) and I’m cutting down on the ale😱 Cutting down, not completely out. Let’s be reasonable!
There’s one thing I have now I never had before.
One thing that’ll help me make a permanent change. Can you guess?

👉It’s mindset work.


At the end of the day, if we don’t believe we can do something. If we don’t believe we can change. Then we won’t change. Simple as that. I always felt like I could lose a certain amount of weight if I was in the right frame of mind and that as soon as I stopped, it would all come back on again, plus extra. Which funnily enough is what always happened.
So I’m working on my self belief.
I’m working on feeling hot now – not easy!
I’m working on feeling worthy of being slim and getting to wear clothes that make me feel a million bucks. I’m visualising myself in those clothes, looking and feeling great. I’m visualising myself as someone for whom health, fitness and wellness is a top priority. How mad is it that it hasn’t been?🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
If I see myself as that person. If I can feel the emotions of what it’ll be like. If I step into that version of me NOW. If I become OBSESSED with becoming her, the new healthy me. The slim me that gets to enjoy shopping again. The me that’s proud to show up in video and livestream – not wanting to hide. And the me with more energy and vibrancy. Then I KNOW it’s gonna be a lasting change.
It’s not really about being in the right state of mind or mood. It’s about it being just who I am. It’s about sacrificing something I want now – to sit on the sofa, or eat for the sake of it – for what I truly want;
To be fit and healthy. Slim and toned. To feel amazing. To know I look amazing. To enjoy shopping. To be body confident. To not have to cover my arms in summer and wish I could wear a vest top on it’s own. To want to do more. To actually do more. To wear leggings without having to wear a long too to cover my ass. And basically, to stop eating my feelings.
I’m working through some mum stuff. And I’m sharing this with you NOT for sympathy, but to explain where this coping mechanism came from. It came from 14 year old me. She didn’t know any better. It took her another 31 years to know better. I just did the best I could at the time and I thank my younger self for that. Love you Tina xx
I NEVER talk about my mum. To me it’s private. Sacred even. And like I said, I’m not after sympathy. But my coach pointed out it’s a part of my story. So I’m willing to share it with you. But it’s definitely not something I’ll be sharing on a regular basis. I’m definitely not someone who posts about how they miss their loved one on what would’ve been their birthday. Then again at Christmas. Then on the anniversary of their passing. And on their own birthday ‘cause they wish they could celebrate with them. And you won’t catch me sharing any posts like “share if someone you know had cancer. I know most people won’t share. But my real friends will and I’ll know who they are..,” bullsh*t.
Anyhoo. It’s almost all about mindset and everything’s a choice.


I choose to get my mindset right. I choose to use mindset work to change my beliefs. To create new habits. To believe I am her now. And I choose to believe that it’s already DONE.
Oh yeah and it’s effortless and super fun!
Of course, another reason I’m sharing this with you besides the fact it could help you or someone else, is for accountability.
We all benefit from a bit of accountability. In business. In health and fitness. In any of our goals. Also though, I want to help you see that it’s a LOT to do with mindset. Everything is.
Yes you can do X Y and Z and eventually get the thing you’re after – the dress size or the sales. Maybe!
But. Will you keep at it if your head’s not properly in the game. You don’t feel like it. It’s hard. Or whatever?
No. I didn’t.
And I bet there’s been instances where you started something before and it fizzled out.
Am I right?🤷🏻‍♀️
