Frequent Fears


Hello Fondues!

So, as has been the case for a few weeks now, my posts are few and far between…

I really am sorry to those of you who enjoy my blogs, but I’ve been working on some amazing stuff that, if you like FF, you are going to LOVE.

More on all that later, but for now, I wanted to share with you an email I had to send to client this morning, who was panicking because she had plateaud after weeks of losing big numbers.

The reason I am choosing to share this email with you all is because I have to send something like this on a near daily basis, and it is important that even if you are NOT a client of mine, you understand a few things about changing your body and what to expect…

Hi xxx,

I know first hand how hard it is to change your lifestyle and start training 5-6 days a week, as well as overhauling your dietary habits, so I am super proud that you have decided to do it properly and stick with it. WELL DONE.

18.5 lbs in 6 weeks is HUGE. It is a phenomenal amount of weight – you are talking over 3lbs a week, which is massive.

Update – Photoshoots


Hello Fondues!

So, my shoots are upon me and although I am definitely in shape, I am not as lean as I have been for previous shoots.

This was neither intentional or unintentional. In the lead up to these shoots my aim was to train hard and eat right, while allowing myself to enjoy my last few weeks with my partner before he flew to the other side of the world for 2 months.

And that is exactly what I did. I trained hard and ate spotlessly 6 days a week, and on our day off, we did, ate and drank whatever we wanted to.

Of course you can still enjoy life when you’re being strict with training and diets, but my partner and I are foodies and drinkies, and these are two non negotiables when it comes to maximising our time together.

 

  • My training currently consists of A.M. cardio (30 mins HIIT or 40 mins LISS) and P.M. weight lifting sessions
  • My diet is now at 1500 calories daily
  • I am following a carb cycle of 4 days low, 1 day high

I am currently getting A LOT of emails and messages from people asking about and wanting to know more about carb cycling, what I recommend, how best to do it, etc etc…

Guys – it is ALL IN THE 12 WEEK BODY TRANSFORMATION GUIDE!

I would quite literally be copy and pasting chapters from it into my replies, which I don’t have the time or inclination to do.

The guide shows you when to train, how to train, cardio, weights, home training, gym training, when to eat, what to eat, why, your progressive dietary options…you will never have to send me an email again!

Here’s to another week of hard work and taking small steps towards a big goal!

Happy Sunday Fondues!

 


My Dietary Tick List


With so much conflicting diet advice out there, planning your body transformation can get pretty overwhelming.

Don’t worry, it’s not just you. Even I have to sit down and write a check list every now and then, simply to remind myself what the dietary fundamentals are, and to make sure I am implementing them daily.

I realise that over 5 years into my ‘journey’, this knowledge is a long term amassment that not everyone has yet, and so I wanted to share my tick list with you all… Continue Reading


Update


Hello Fondues!

So those of you who follow me on social media will know that I haven’t been overly present on FF recently, due to the fact that I’m writing my first book!

It’s not a download or an iBook, it’s a real life book, book!

It’s incredibly fun and exciting for me to write something brand spanking new, that I truly believe will get people serious results.

It will include a 4 week workout plan that you can do at home OR in the gym, a weekly diet plan, and as I know A LOT of you are in desperate need of…RECIPES!

Lots and LOTS of recipes!

Week 2, Post Holiday Blues


Hello Fondues!

For 11 days solid now I have woken up every morning for 15-20 minutes of fasted cardio at home (circuits or treadmill), followed by lunch time weight lifting sessions at the gym.

I always focus on a different muscle group or 2 per session:

  • Legs/glutes
  • Back/arms
  • Shoulders/abs

This allows me to hit every muscle group twice a week.

My sets and reps always differ:

  • Sometimes 3/8 HEAVY
  • Sometimes 4/12-15 to exhaustion
  • Sometimes pyramid sets
