Who is your Thinspiration?

Who is your ‘thinspiration’??

Who do you look at in magazines, on tv or actually know that you would love to look like??

Mine is Kate Middleton because she is slim AND fit.(Remember slim doesn’t always mean fit! Someone could be thin but smoke or just be naturally lean but never exercise).

Here’s what to do- get a picture or write the person’s name down…then stick it to your fridge/biscuit tin/munchie cupboard and ‘visualise,visualise,visualise’.

Try to steer clear of said biscuit tin and get moving!

Now, I am never going to have long legs but I can improve the tone and look of mine with the right exercises, eating healthy and drinking lots of water…and some high heels!!

Join me on Tuesday evenings for Bums, tums and wobbly bits 7.30pm followed by some express fat burning at 8.30pm-9pm. St Josephs lower hall. Hope to see you there!

Thought of the week

This week’s THOUGHT OF THE WEEK is from Beth who is a  Tuesday night Bums, tums & circuit class and Thursday morning pilates regular, she saw this and thought of me!! Chocoholic that I am!! Thanks Beth!


“Your hand and mouth agreed many years ago that, as far as chocolate is concerned, there’s no need to involve your brain” Dave Barry, American Humourist


Thank you for reading this week’s blog, you may have come along to one or lots of my adult exercise classes or brought your ‘wee monkey’ along to my children’s sessions. I enjoy sending out a weekly blog full of motivation, positive thoughts and where you can find me to come and join in with my exercise classes.


Be inspired and think – fit!
