27 & Going Strong: A Self-doubting Woman’s Perspective

On June 24th I will lift for team GB alongside some of the World’s strongest women. Incredible.       In 2 days I turn 27, and exactly 2 weeks after my 27th birthday I will be standing on a platform attempting to lift as much weight as I possibly can. It’s been an unbelievable journey so far and over the next 2 weeks I hope to share with you a few steps along my journey to the World Championships: training, diet, and general thoughts of the day. This isn’t where I thought I would be at 27; as a teenager I’d envisioned being […]

Could this one training mistake be damaging your chances of success?

Given my chosen profession I would be mad if I said that losing fat is a rubbish goal, but I do see it another way; I believe the fat would come off (and stay off) if the goal were redefined. The problem comes when we […]

Dealing With Stress

I was looking for quotes on how to deal with stress but all I could find were pictures that said things along the lines of “stop feeling stressed, and start feeling blessed” – enforcing the belief that stress is something you can just switch on and off; something that you choose to do. There is a lot of material out there on anxiety and depression for those who want to read it but when it comes to stress there doesn’t seem to be as much. Stress is a silent killer, and one that we currently aren’t taking seriously enough – […]

Exercise & Mental Health

1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem of some kind in their lifetime. These numbers are on the rise and prescription medications are increasingly being used in reflection. Alternative therapies do exist and research into the effect that exercise can have on mental health has been gaining momentum. Antidepressants and drug treatments are the most frequently prescribed, and this is usually the only treatment offered.1 While they can be effective they can also have unpleasant side-effects, meaning many people prefer psychological therapy to drug treatment. Unfortunately, due to the high demands for counselling, there […]
