About Carter (taken from his blog above and written by Lucy his mom )

Carter is an outgoing, confident and sociable little boy who always does what he’s told and is genuinely never naughty! Carter is popular with his school friends and his teachers, who say ‘Carter is a happy, bright and chatty little boy who is always keen to talk. He has a caring nature and a sense of injustice so will always try hard to resolve conflicts.’

Full of energy and happiness from the minute he wakes up, he really enjoys horse riding, swimming, soccatots, riding his bike, crab fishing, driving the boat and playing on our favourite beach in the world – North Sands Beach, Salcombe. Carter is also an avid fan of Spiderman, Batman, Paw Patrol and Scooby Doo! But his most favourite thing is probably running – he is so fast that he won ALL 3 races in his school sports day last July!

Carter is a brilliant little brother to his sister Monica and happily allows her to boss him about, dress him up, put make up on him (!) and make him participate in dance marathons! Just such a sweet natured, gentle little boy…

We all work so hard for our children to be happy, fulfilled and enjoy care free lives so it really is every parent’s worst nightmare to be sat down and told that their child is seriously ill. On the 11th January this year we received the devestating diagnosis that our gorgeous little boy Carter has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and the road ahead is 6-9 months of intensive treatment followed by 3 years of maintenance treatment. Suddenly your whole life stops in its tracks. However, with the amazing work of the Oncology Consultants and nurses of Birmingham Childrens Hospital, his prognosis is very good at 90% success and this is all we focus on…

During these events we will train you just like we do on our fitness holidays ( although we miss out the aqua ! )

There will be a welcome chat and then an itinerary of classes and clean food refreshments, a chance to discuss your fitness and nutrition needs with the trainers and any goals you may have heading towards the end of 2015 and new year.

An event like this is great for your motivation and mind set. You will feel ready to take on the world!!

All levels of fitness welcome .

Price just £30 including refreshments . Bookings in advance to reserve your place please. Spaces are limited to 25 persons

They are so much fun , don’t miss it . We love these events. “Feel like I have had a real treat” Is the reaction from participants!

Spring Into Action – April News

April 30th, 2015 | Posted by Gail in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Spring Into Action – April News)

Wishing you a wonderful April and hope your Easter was filled with love.

Spring is my favourite season, a season of all things flourishing, new growth, birth and awakenings.
In finance its the start of a new tax year,a time to check if the goal posts have moved or still on track with targets.

In health its a period where we may benefit with changes to our winter schedule.
Bringing some workouts outside, trying new seasonal foods and vegetables from local farm shops.
Re – setting the goals & tracking the progress.

I am in Ireland this week for personal stuff & also over here researching some exciting openings in the healthy food market. I will let you know where this takes So Lean & Clean soon.

So Lean & Clean have had the best group results and support through January to date and from what I have experienced in my history of management of weight loss there is NOT a more successful way of lifestyle changes in eating habits than online plans.
24/7 guidance, support & accountability.

So if you make one big spring change get on it and leap forward to better your health here .

After a winter season of planting the seeds of health, the spring is here for nurturing them.
And I like to attend all fitness & nutrition conventions to stay ahead with all the latest research.

A networking month with others from my industry . It rejuvenates, brings light bulb moments & helps to consolidate plans.

As I alway keep reminding here It’s very important to keep yourself constantly motivated and excited about life . Nobody will bring that to you on a plate, you have to go out and find it .

In work or personal life to stay uplifted, source your motivation and inspiration, once you begin to seek out the people who inspire you, one day you will realise that they naturally flow to you so long as you are ‘open’ to them .
If you however keep your head down in a phone you may miss them .

This leads me to close my newsletter this week briefly paying tribute to a dear client and friend who was hugely inspirational and offered me great support whom I won’t name .

This big smiley guy came introduced to me word of mouth ( by another great client & friend) for private Yoga sessions , just one month in, he was diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer.
He and his lovely courageous wife came weekly to Yoga and Power walking.

I learnt so much about the effects of cancer from him & about the best ways of coping with cancer when an inoperable diagnosis is presented.

“Endorphins ” he would profess, you must keep the endorphins high.
Which he did, for the whole 2.5 years.
Rolling up every week that they were home & sharing his wisdom and humour with the PW group.
I would lead the group and always hear the laughter from other members who were walking with him .
We would joke and ‘rib’ the guys that they must have dropped off for a coffee as we have acquired a ‘steady’ pace pack that ‘naturally flowed’ along with him, rather slower than the frisky leaders.

This gentleman and that’s exactly how I would describe him, encouraged me to help others in his situation by taking me to a cancer & the benefits of fitness conference.
You may read this and think how peculiar that I still support fitness and helping people with cancer through my works but one huge thing he stood for was that ‘fitness & movement ‘ assisted his quality of life right through to the last.

He was there at the very start of the power walking group almost two years ago and I know he will be very dearly remembered by all.

If you are struggling someway right now then let me share his reference to a simple book in hoping that it may lift you.

The title here;
‘ Being Happy ‘ by Andrew Matthews.

For those wishing to crack on with goals .

See my website for all details to help , from online weight loss to power walking and running groups.

Wishing you all a very heathy and Happy week

Feeling Motivated in 2015?

January 16th, 2015 | Posted by Gail in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Feeling Motivated in 2015?)

Happy New Year to you ! Today is the historically busiest fitness day in the January calendar .

People have usually finally ate all the chocolates, cake & wine and thinking its time to now hit the workouts. Joining new gyms , signing up for personal training , seeking out new classes, watching the TV. programmes,  anything to keep them motivated.

There is so much to choose from out there that many feel confused if not even overwhelmed with choices & advice, especially as media can conflict day to day!

Why is that?

Everybody has there inspiration from different sources. Experience of losing weight with different diets, do Weight Watchers, do Slimming World, try the 5:2 , Have a go at the South Beach etc etc etc

But if they are still on a diet , then they are doing it wrong , so you decide to ditch the lunch time sandwiches for a month , go dryathlon for January but can’t wait for it to end, do you really believe the weight will stay off if you go back to the same habits?

Its really important that you make some solid promises to yourself , nobody is suggesting you should give up an occasional drink or two but every night? There are many reasons for health why you need to alter this habit and the least one is possibly to lose the weight.

Whilst in dry January make a list of these reasons , put them on your notes in your phone , stick them on post it notes around your office, wherever you need to be reminded why you are changing your routine now & why you should change for life.

My advice to you is choose natural food,no boxes, no packets, no tins. Don’t ‘diet’ don’t put a start and end date on it.

Understand the importance of ‘nutrition & hydration’. It may extend your life. It will definitely give you a better quality life.

Think first about putting the quality food in each meal , not putting in the packet things into your daily intake first and then adding a bit of veg to it.

Keep up to date with the latest exercise & nutrition advice where possible.

On So Lean & Clean we do that and give the support that is needed when making changes in life.

The next SLAC online plan begins Monday 26th Jan. Jump on board and I will show you the easy way to health & fitness.

Festive Fun !

December 13th, 2014 | Posted by Gail in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Festive Fun !)

Hi all I hope you are having a wonderful December. Just now 12 days away from Christmas. How are the stress levels?

I use to get uptight about Christmas but somehow I have desensitised to all the urgency and just kick back , lower my own uber high self expectations and just go with the flow!

Crazy isn’t it anything we seem to count down to just can send you into a frenzy!

The main worries of Christmas are

Time

Cost

Fear of letting people down

So as my dad used to say lets get it all into perspective

I am posting some sound cloud Christmas tips to keep your fitness and health in check over the festive season and here is a little advice if your nerve are going off the richter scale!

 

Do you really need ALL the food on the list ?

Do you really need to spend THAT amount on people?

It is just ONE day, what you don’t manage to afford today you can make a budget and factor that dream child’s gift into the year plan. The best things in life are worth waiting a little bit longer for.

Over feeding everybody will just create stress after Christmas, stress to pay back credit cards, stress to get the weight off. Be lean (not mean ) with eating , make some quality food not quantity.  Then you will spend less time in those supermarket queues and more time with the family or at the gym staying in shape.

Get everybody involved in the jobs leading up to Christmas , project manage your day. Include the kids get them wrapping, send them off to get some gifts if they are old enough. They will then appreciate how much time all of this takes.
