Exercise for your mental health first. Your physical health second.

Getting a surge of endorphins helps decrease anxiety naturally and has helped me through many a down day. In the past I used to exercise to burn calories or so I can eat a huge meal later in the day, or create the perfect body - it was never sustainable and never worked for very long.

Over the past 10 years, I have exercised for selfcare. As a result, I exercise almost every day for a minimum of 20 minutes and many days for much longer. Walk, run (like me in this photo this morning with a red face!!), jog, pilates, cycle, zumba, fitness class, weight training - try a new form of exercise and see what you like and more importantly, ditch the ones you don't like!

I exercise to feel good, have more energy, clarity, happiness, keeping up with the kids and most importantly to be happier.

1. Stop dieting
Life is too short to spend your time depriving yourself and trying endless diets. Diets make you stop eating all the foods you love and trust me, they don’t work! Eat foods that nourish your body and allow yourself to eat the foods that are good for your soul. Listen to your body and work out what is good for your body - no-one else's! Try crowding out your plate by adding lots of scrumptious vegetables, healthy fats, fruits, meat, fish, grains, nuts, legumes, and seeds.

2. Hydrate. Yes, I know, water isn't food, but it is the best thing to put in your body when you wake up and before you have your morning caffeine. Aim to drink 2-3 clean filtered water throughout the day.

3. Add Fibre
Try for 30g and test out what works for you. Fibre plays a major part in keeping your digestive system healthy & helps keep your bowel movements regular. A healthy gut signifies a healthy body and mind. Try adding chia seeds, green peas, raspberries, oats, banana, red kidney beans, avocados, chickpeas, broccoli, & bulger.

4. Find Movement you enjoy
Consistency, not perfection is what gets you healthy (and keeps you healthy). Exercise should be enjoyable, otherwise you are doing it wrong! Walking, running, Pilates, Group fitness classes, Zumba, peloton, treadmill, boxing, swimming - try all different forms to see what you makes you happy!

5. Self-care break
Whilst going away for a 5-day retreat in the Seychelles would be amazing right now, it's not realistic for long-term self-care. Find moments through the week to sprinkle your self-care into your routine. Putting yourself first is essential when learning to de-stress and reduce anxiety and don't feel guilty about taking time for yourself! Everyone is different but I like to take breath breaks throughout the day, glass of wine with friends, sipping on a latte after a dog walk. Your self-care is your business, doesn't need to be perfect for it to work.

I’m always on the lookout for a vegetarian dish that my husband will enjoy and not mind that there is no meat. This dish is a real winner and curry is so comforting on these cold winter nights. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 large head cauliflower, cut into large florets
3 tsp of olive oil
400g can chickpeas, drained, rinsed
100g baby spinach leaves
225g pack of paneer cheese - cubed
1 tsp finely grated ginger
2 garlic cloves, grated
2 onions, finely sliced
2 x 400g cans tinned tomatoes
200g frozen peas
2 tsp curry powder
2 tsp ground turmeric
Small handful of coriander
Salt & Pepper

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 400°C and lightly oil a baking sheet with 1 tsp of oil. Cut the cauliflower into florets and add to the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges char. Then set to one side.

2. Add a tsp of oil to a large pan and brown the paneer until browned, then drain on kitchen paper

3. Now add the final tsp of oil into the pan and add the onion, garlic and ginger and cook on a medium heat for about 10-15 minutes or until onions are softened. Now add the curry powder and tumeric and cook for 1 minute.

4. Add the chickepeas and tomatoes and simmer for 18-20 minutes. Add the crispy paneer, salt & pepper as desired, charred cauliflower, peas and spinach and cook for a further 5 minutes. This dish is delicious with just a sprinkling of coriander – or you can add basmati rice, raita or left over roast chicken if you want a meat option.

Quick snippet from me practicing the Pilates mat class I taught yesterday. If you don’t have a theraband, just pretend you do. Pilates is all about using imagery to help you focus!

Take a 10 min break from your desk, drink some water and still have 8 mins for some Pilates!

Hi Mums (and mums to be). These are my favourite core moves to do to reconnect with my abs pre/post pregnancy.

I did these after each baby to help me heal my diastasis. I had 3 babies in 3 years so I had a lot of healing to do!

Try these moves:

✨wrap a theraband around your waist. Inhale feel the back and sides expand as well as your low belly (but don’t press out let it naturally fill) and relax pelvic floor. Then exhale, feel the pelvic floor engage and the front ribs narrow exhale all the air out and deepen the contraction of the deep core muscles transverse abs (tva). You can do this 100 times a day if you want!

✨try the same breathing pattern this time holding the band in front of you and pulling out in it while narrowing ribs and contracting abs.
✨try now with the band overhead. I find this the hardest since the ribs love to splay open.
✨hold the band in front elbows glued to the sides and open one arm at a time feel the contraction of the obliques on that side.

If you listen closely you can hear the breathwork and my abs working. This took me awhile and I still do these to remind myself of staying connected to the tva and how important our breath and posture are for healing.
-
As always it is most important to take time to recover after giving birth; and to really listen to your body. Take your time getting back into gentle movement.

My thing, walking outside. What is yours?

How do you find your calm in the chaos that is our lives?

How do you find a minute of peace when it feels nearly unthinkable?

Well, I don't think anyone actually can give you this exact answer.

What I do know is that if you take a minute, take some long deep breaths and do 1 thing that feels soothing then you will likely feel a lot calmer than before.

I LOVE lamb cutlets and roasted veg. One-pot roasted veg is so intensely tasty, so simple, healthy and perfect for meal prepping (3 batches go in my freezer).

Why do I love this so much:
💕 It only takes 15 minutes to make
🧄 So many veggies to help getting your 5+ a day
🍽 I can add anything to it - rice, jacket potatoe chicken, grated cheese on top,
❤️ It feels like comfort food with LOTS of flavor

Ingredients:
2 yellow peppers
3 tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
1 red onion
3 courgettes
1 tsp of basil (pref fresh)
1 tsp of thyme
1 tbs of red wine vinegar

I LOVE food too much to waste my time on lifeless and boring salads. I eat salads because of the yummy extra's and salad dressings I can put in them. Salad dressings have got a bad rep mainly because of all the sugar, fat and calories restaurants put in them which is why we ask for them on the side.

However, no-one struggles with weight gain as a result of eating too much salad. I think what makes a fantastic salad is the delicious additions and dressings that excite you - I get excited by bacon so here is my Bacon & Egg Garden Salad today for lunch that I made in under 10 minutes.

Everybody has 24 hours in a day. However, certain people manage their time so efficiently that it seems like they only sleep 2 hours a night, have no stress and therefore no wrinkles!!!

The beginning of the year can feel especially hectic so here are 5 top tips for time management: -

1. Use goals to prioritize your calendar
Identify your top weekly goals and make a list of weekly tasks that support those goals. Add in your activities with start and end times in the calendar. Make sure to evaluate your productivity each week and make changes where necessary.

2. Find a routine that works for you
Create a weekly routine by scheduling activities at the same time day and time each week. This will automate your commitments on a weekly basis. For example ,our family runs a term time and holiday time schedule.

3. Stop multitasking
Most parents, especially Mums are multitaskers (making dinner whilst practicing times tables and helping your other children build lego sound familiar?!). Multitasking is often praised, however when trying to achieve your goals mulittasking can lead to a lack of focus which in turn can cause errors and to being less productive. Activate your focusing muscle and manage one activity at a time.

4. Plan plan plan
Adding time in your weekly schedule to prioritize your week's activities will help increase your productivity. For example, make a shopping list before going online or to the supermarket will help you succeed in a healthy budget, only going to the supermarket once and stop you buying those impulse buys.

5. Schedule your downtime!
It is essential to find time for your mind and body to relax. Finding time in your day to read a book, listen to a podcast, meditation or a bath. Allowing your body to relax encourages the flow of blood around our body to increase which gives us more energy. It will help you have a calmer and clearer mind which aids positive thinking, decision making and concentration.

It’s the season of yummy Christmas foods and drinks. Focus on consuming what brings you joy. Research shows 80% of people who start diets on 1 January will fail by February. Don’t waste your precious time and buy the new diet book or sign up for the diet app. You can borrow all the diet books that I keep as a memory to myself that Diets DON’T work!!

Give yourself a break, be kind to yourself and enjoy food in January.

Happy New Year from my family to yours !!❤️🥂🥳xx

What a glorious sunny day it ended up being. It was so chilly this morning, I wrapped up warm for teaching Pilates and by noon I was running in the sunshine with Rocky my dog.

Each day, try and take a little time for you. Whether it is having a cuppa and a chat with a friend, a long soak in the bath, journal writing, cooking a delicious meal, meditation or doing some exercise.

Allow yourself a moment to reflect on all you have achieved this year and be proud of yourself.

Hi! I’m Thea.

I studied and trained in New York to become a classically trained pilates instructor and health coach.

My idea for the business grew out of my lifelong passion for health and wellness. Guided by a practical and optimistic approach, I help clients improve their health, achieve their goals, and develop sustainable habits to live a happy, healthy and balanced life.

I am extremely passionate about stopping endless yo-yo dieting and believe that food should be fun, nourishing and scrumptious.

I love using low impact body moves to create bodies that are strong, lean and sculptured. Driven by the desire to help my clients, I study all the latest research and am constantly evaluating competing dietary and fitness theories. Most importantly, I use my knowledge to make individual recommendations for my clients – what is health for one client could be a disaster to another.

I am married to Quinn and have 3 amazing kiddies and a dog called Rocky.

Areas to note:

600+ Hour mat & apparatus training at Core Pilates NYC

Health Coach Certification: Institute for Integrative Nutrition NYC

Worked with wellness pioneers Erika Bloom, Kim Villanueva and Kristin McGee

Pre/post natal training through Core Pilates NYC
