Valentines Day and Pancake Day – The World is Against Us!


I hope you enjoyed some time with loved ones last week………and didn’t go mad for the sake of it…….or restrict yourself too much if you are progressing at a rate you are happy with 🙂


The mind games we play with ourselves………..I find very interesting.

Sometimes we try to rationalise something ‘isn’t that bad’ (eg chocolate)………..and sometimes we lie to ourselves ‘ I worked really hard today’  (when really you KNOW you could have done more).

Then there’s the flip side.

Sometimes we restict ourselves to the point where it becomes ‘a pain’ to restict yourself that treat.  Or……. you train to the point of failure and increase the risk of serious injuries……time after time after time.

What I would like to suggest to you is a sense of balance.



Weight Loss

What do I mean?

If you’re happy with your progress (see saw is balanced), then keep doing what you’re doing.

If you’re not happy with your progress (see saw towards too much bodyfat), then you need to make some changes.


The happier you are with your progress and nearer to your goal………….the greater margin of error you have!

Onto tonight!


Pancake day 


Yes, it was valentines day last week and now it’s pancake day.  The world is against us all!!!!


Does this mean you have to have 6 pancakes?  No.

Does this mean you need to abstain totally?  Again…..No.



It really does depend on your current situation and how happy you are at the moment.


Enjoy your week!




PS A Bootcamper has alerted me to an opportunity some of you may be interested in.  The may be a zip line event from the humber bridge  (details are sketchy at the moment).  Those involved are checking for numbers (wanting around 60 people) and I promised I would mention it.  Those wishing to participate would need a £30 deposit, and then raise a minimum of £100 for charity.   If you or you know someone whoi is interested…………email me at and Il put you in touch with the right people 🙂
