Get Results, Be Accountable, Follow a Plan

29 Oct

It’s all too easy to fall off the wagon with so many distractions around us. If you want results, and can’t seem tyou can do it 2o get them, you need to be accountable to someone.

You need to throw away everything in your house that’s bad, because if you don’t, you will eat it. FACT. Don’t kid yourself, you come home tired, you finish the dinner and oooh, where’s that Kitkat I saw earlier?

Workout. You need a diary to log and plan workouts and stick to it like glue. The first one you miss, regardless of the excuse you have, let that be a warning to you. You’re slipping, whether consciously or not.  The second one you miss? It’s a 50/50 guess whether you’re going to continue or not.

Whether you like it or not, if you want results, you need to commit to changes. You can’t live your old life and expect results. Results do not come easy. They come to people who commit to making a change. Who are self-aware enough to know that they will only see real changes if they make real changes.


You can do this. Pick a date and start. If it was easy, EVERYONE WOULD BE SKINNY.

Confronting Your Fear

22 Oct

The biggest challenge we face as we go through life and try to accomplish goals,  is getting over fear. Fear used to hold me back and prevent me from doing stuff.  Now I finally see what a waste that is. I’ve been forced over the past year to confront so many things that would terrify me, and it’s only through being forced to do stuff,  have I realised that life is better when you’re always out of your comfort zone.

I had to give a 20 minute presentation to a room full of my peers on Friday night. There was over 200 people in the room, all business owners. All week I nearly had a heart attack, my palms were sweaty and my heart started racing, 3 days before!!!!

But I did it and it’s done, and I loved it. I was clear, able to control my breathing and all the things I feared would happen, didn’t!!!

Somebody said to me at the weekend, to never have a plan B. They meant that in the sense of not taking failure and a back up plan as an option.  If you want to achieve your goals, decide you’re going to achieve them and don’t listen to the voice in the back of your head that tells you to be prepared in case you don’t.dare to dream

Failure is not an option for me anymore. I have a vision and I’m going to get there.  Inspire Fitness is continuing to strive to help the residents of Galway be happy and healthy and confident in themselves. WE want to have excellent customer service and a fantastic client experience.  That’s our mission as a company and we live by it.  We’ve a great team going forward and I’m so excited for the next chapter.

To your health,


How to Succeed & Achieve Your Goal.

14 Oct

To succeed in anything, you need to first of all decide that you are not going to give up until you get to your goal. Your mindset needs to be in the right place. You need to know what it takes to get you there,  how you’re going to get there and if it’s actually achievable.

If it is achievable, if you’ve seen others do it before,  then it IS POSSIBLE. you can do it 2

It doesn’t matter if you fail a few times, or if you don’t get a handle on it right from the start, it’s the trying that’s important. That is the difference between success and failure, you either keep going or you give up.

You need to make a decision about how important your goal is to you. If you want it badly enough, you’ll do it. You’ll get there. Don’t get dis-heartened.

If your goal doesn’t scare you, it’s not a big enough goal!

Never lose faith,  you can do this. Be patient, work hard, and good things will happen.

Yours in Health,


Tips for pre-Christmas weight loss success

1 Oct

Are you someone who always leaves it too late to get into shape for Christmas? This year don’t let it be you. Don’t go on one of those fad

little_black_dress2 diets that tells you you can’t eat this or you can’t eat that, you’ll only pile it all back on plus more if you do! Instead, start thinking now:

  • What dress size would you like to be before Christmas?
  • How many pounds can you realistically lose per week?
  • Now, write down how many days per week you can dedicate to exercise… you need to be working out no less than 3 times per week to see changes.
  • Pick a start date and stick to it.
  • Follow the 80/20 rule…eating healthy 80% of the time.

You can do it! You WILL fit into that LBD before Christmas!

Kind regards,
