Don’t go home…try to find a class or activity you can do just after work or just after dropping children to school/nursery.

Always get your workout clothes ready beforehand- if you have to look out your clothes and (like me) iron them, you will lose your momentum before the iron heats up!

Rope in your friends and family, if you have made an arrangement with your friend/sister/mum/neighbour you are less likely to cancel. Motivate each other.

Keep going…only you can make a difference to your weight/shape/fitness level/frame of mind. There is no ‘quick fix’ you have to keep it up to see results!

Have a wonderful week everyone,

Julie x
