A Sports Nutritionists Guide to Carbohydrates

One of the biggest things I want to start with is that Carbohydrates are not the enemy. We’ve all seen the fad diets which claim to ‘torch fat’ and give you the abs of your dreams all by completely cutting out carbs. They’re bullsh*t, and demonise carbs unnecessarily. Carbohydrates are actually a key macronutrient, and one that plays many important roles within the body. Carbohydrates not only aid with digestion but help with absorption of nutrients and water, cognitive functioning and also provide us with energy and muscular fuel. In this article, I discuss all of the benefits of carbohydrates and how to use them to optimise your workouts.

Balancing Life And Fitness | The Struggle

Something that I’ve really had to perfect these past few years is the art (yes it may as well be an art) of balancing life and fitness. I’m a full time student, who also balances a business, life and also fitness. It’s a tough line up to manage, and it’s most definitely not a breeze. But, it is possible. In this post I talk all about how I balance everything from work, fitness, nutrition and everything in between.

Time To Lace Up Your Walking Boots

It’s time to lace up your walking boots! I’m sure you’ve all seen recently that since Christmas I’ve spent a lot of my time high up in the clouds, covered in mud and strapped up in my walking boots. To be honest, I’ve never minded the rain, I believe that mud never hurt nobody and I’m a complete sucker for an incredible view. Now, I’m not saying that everyone reading this will feel the same. I have plenty of friends who absolutely hate the outdoors and can’t bare to get their toes dirty. Which is also okay. But to the small percentage of you who might enjoy it, this post is for you.

365 new chances to be awesome

When it comes to the new year, the 1st of January always rolls around and the influx of ‘new year, new me’ resolutions flood social media. If I’m honest, I don’t really know how I feel about resolutions. All I really know is, that the start of the new year is 365 new chances to be awesome.

Personally, I like to think as new years resolutions more of ‘goals’. Instead of setting myself resolutions to ‘stick to’ I instead think of things I would like to achieve, improve or do throughout 2018. From there, I formulate something I like to call a ‘2018 plan’. That way, I’m not just saying I want to do something, I’m planning out exactly how I will do and how I will measure that it is done. Give it a try!
