Monday Motivation – Ambition

It's still Sunday but I'm feeling fully prepared for the week so lets kick off that Monday motivation before it's even started. I'm talking about ambition, every goal has ambition right? Wrong. Just because you have a goal does not mean you have ambition, ambition requires desire and determination. It is not enough to say…

Back to Basics

So when you feel like you've wandered a bit off track and it doesn't matter which way off track, for me as I said in my previous post I was trying to be too "clean" and ending up having a weekend binge followed by some pretty nasty self hate. I want to get back to living…

Negative Attitudes To Exercise?

Why is it so hard to find motivation to get fit and lose weight? I remember getting my sick notes for PE, I would tell my mom on a morning I didn't want to do it and she would say something along the lines of "you're like me I hated sports  too" and off I'd go…
