‘He was very overweight and this increases the risk of several health conditions. Some of the values from his test were out of range but would correct themselves once he loses weight. I explained how obesity is a disease and PronoKal is a medically supervised programme and since then he has managed to lose 53kg😃👏🏻’ – Doctor Dolores
"I did not wake up like this. I changed my lifestyle for this. I worked out late for this. I changed what I eat for this. I sweat for this. I cried for this. I life heavy for this. I workout everyday for this. I made this. And this is worth it! I am worth it"
Battle ropes and TRX session I did at the weekend. Always keep your workouts interesting and challenging to avoid hitting a plateau - once you hit and plateau your motivation can slack and your results will slow also! "Don't limit your challenges, challenge your limits" ✌

Fun fact: Free climbing is such a hard limit for me. I'm terrified of it.
Today I faced that fear & did this. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. (Swipe Left)
Side note - Rosches are the WORST hiking/climbing shoes. I fell/slipped several times. Hella dusty. #GetActive#alamerefalls#EarlyStartToABetterSelf#swipeleft
SWIMMING 💙💙💙 Who else loves a good pool session??? 🤹♀️🤹♀️🤹♀️ In the last few weeks I've been getting back into swimming regularly - and I am LOVING it 🦈🦈🦈 I swam sooo much when I was a kid! 🐟 There was a brilliant article in The Irish Times Health Section last week about swimming and it's benefits as a form of exercise AND meditation! 🤗🤗 So I've attached a little infographic here with the multiple physical AND mental health benefits this article mentioned! 😊😊 Ehen I get into the pool, time flies, my brain is quiet and my body just works away 🐠🐠🐠 What do you guys think? 🤓 Do you swim? 🐟 Do you enjoy it? ☘ Leave a comment or DM - share your thoughts 😊
🗣Today I declared (after practically crawling back up the hill) to walk/baby jog for at least 20 minutes, everyday for one month. 🏃🏽♀️🚶🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️🚶🏽♀️
I thought why not make it a 💥double whammy💥 and not drink ANY alcohol either! 😱🚫🍻🍹
I’ve been feeling great while making small changes but I think it’s time to STEP. IT. UP! 🙌🏽💪🏽
I’m not gonna put any stress on myself by saying I have to lose so many pounds, but merely just put out and show up everyday! 💯💯💯
I’d love to have someone 🤝join me! It doesn’t have to be the same thing. Just something you’re willing to give up and/or commit to for 1️⃣ MONTH.
🙋🏽I’ll be here for support, accountability, and motivation!
When you hold yourself accountable for not just your words but actions as well, you’ll be victorious no matter the outcome! 🏆
Tuesday Tip: Beat the Autumn blues 🍂
So Autumn is well and truly here; cooler, darker evenings and mornings. For me, and many of my clients and class members this is a tough transition. It's hard to find motivation to continue regular exercise, and we crave warming, comfort foods. Low energy, low mood and low motivation makes us want to hibernate rather than work out. So how can you keep that summer mojo going? Focus on shorter workouts if you’re struggling to find motivation for long sessions. Aim for 30-45 mins of high intensity exercise 3 x week: a class, a home hiit workout, or a cycle or run. On other days do something less intense that you enjoy: walk, jog, swim, or do pilates/yoga. Find a gym buddy; it’s harder to skip that workout when you’re doing it with someone else. Join a colleague for a lunchtime run, or meet up with a friend at the gym or at a class. The social side of fitness plays a massive role in keeping you on track. Try to sneak exercise in whenever you can: park further away, take the stairs, walk over to speak to colleagues in the office rather than phoning or try a walking meeting with colleagues. If you’re watching the kids play sport then walk the sideline instead of standing still. If you are having a night in then be as active as you can: when you’re watching tv do a few moves while you watch (yes I’m serious lol!) -a few squats? tricep dips off the sofa? marching your feet up and down, play the advert game and change moves every time the ads change - make it fun and get your family/flatmates involved too! Exercise isn’t just for losing weight, it’s great for stress relief and at this time of year when things can be a bit manic it’s a great release. The endorphins will lift your mood and help energise you. Make the most of those bright autumnal days and go for a walk outside. Oh and just because it’s not baking hot you still need to be drinking plenty of water. It’s even more important to ensure you’re properly hydrated at this time of year as it’s when most of us forget - so get sipping while you workout! Don’t let the changing seasons get you down - embrace it - enjoy it and have some fun this Autumn 🍁
Happy Tuesday 🤗
My jar full o’ goodness & greens! I got into the habit of waking up early enough before work/uni to make a smoothie fresh everyday for Dave and I. They were chocca full of baby spinach, frozen mango, banana, spirulina and any other stuff I wanted to get rid of or sneak in there 🍃🌿🌱smoothies are a SERIOUSLY amazing way of getting in a bunch of nutrients in a very easy and yummy way! 💚
Had a blast tonight in #Barre class at @ashleylanefitness!! 💪@zpochi might be my favorite fitness instructor ever. And that 80s/90s playlist was pure gold to workout to. 🏋 Can't wait to try the studio's other classes soon! PROMO CODE: use "katie10" when you sign up to get $10 off!! 🙌
I was only permitted to do cardio tonight, not too bad after missing a few days.
Wouldn't you know last week's perfume buddy was there again but this time on the opposite side of the gym! 🤗 However, 48 minutes into my workout I gained a new perfume buddy. Rather than focusing on the problem I became the solution. Needless to say I cut my time short and hightailed it out of there. 😋
