Happy Halloween!!


Want to know something SCARY?


The average person gains around 7-10 pounds during the festive season.


Aaaand that’s just around the corner.


Halloween today.


Christmas in less than 8 weeks.


Then BOOOM before we know it – 2023!!


Yup, brace yourself for a busy time ahead.


While the festive season should really be enjoyable, for many it’s highly stressful and can feel overwhelming.


And when you feel stressed or overwhelmed:


*You don’t eat as well.


*You fall in to bad habits.


*Don’t workout as much.


*Wear jumpers to cover up.


*Pick up colds much easier.


*Don’t sleep as well.


*Darker monings/nights get you down, etc.


This is EXACTLY the time of year its important to be taking care of yourself the most!!


Otherwise all those sweets, chocolates and Prosecco’s can not only sacrifice your waistline, confidence and clothes but also your health.


So here’s my 7 top tips to help your waistline and health survive Halloween.


1. Put ‘Treats’ in a Tupperware Box


If the kids have a ‘stock’ – keep it in a cupboard you don’t usually use or anywhere not visible.


Out of sight, out of mind!



2. Have a Mini Workout


Even if it’s only 2 mins.


It’ll not only burn some cheeky extra calories and get you out the kitchen but it’ll also give enough time for your cravings to pass.


They only last approx 2mins!


Skipping or burpees anyone?


3. Think Forward


If you feel a binge of the sweeties coming and you’ve already done No.2, think how you’ll feel after you eat it.


From the feeling of bloatedness, feeling tired, sick, how your belly will look, etc.


Just thinking about this may just be enough to stop you.



4. Brush Your Teeth


This sounds simple and perhaps a little crazy but you’ll be AMAZED how well it works.


5. Take a Quick Picture of Your Food Before You Eat it


What you eat in private you wear in public.


If you wouldn’t share your sugar binge on social media then…


6. Go Shopping & Stock up on Healthy Foods


If you’ve got healthy food in the cupboard you’ll eat healthy food and vice versa.


EAT crap = FEEL like crap.


7. Come Along To My Fitness Classes


OK so this is a cheeky little extra one I put in.


But seriously.


If you’re a woman who wants to get fit, burn fat and have fun doing it, you’ll love my fitness classes.


No gym, no membership and suitable for all levels.


Booking just opened till Jan 2023 – check them out!



8. Forgive Yourself


EVERYBODY loves a bit of ‘naughtiness’ now and again.


If you overindulge, have the moment then let it GO.


Starting a downward spiral of self-loathing over a bumper size bag of chocolates and something you can’t change is pointless.


Pick yourself up, dust those shoulders and get back on track as soon as you can.
