Get Real with Kimberley: To do anxiety

I should have written this post an hour ago… because I proper had what I am going to describe as ‘to do anxiety’. I just Googled the term (that I made up) and no results for what I have in my mind. Wow, maybe I should coin the phrase. So what (IMO) is ‘to do anxiety’. To me, it is the feeling of never ever nearing the end of the to do list. I actually have several to do lists;…

Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets: My Thoughts

Last summer I watched a documentary on clean eating – these were my thoughts on it! A couple weeks back I watched the lovely Grace Victory’s BBC 3 documentary, Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets. You can watch it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p040430l/clean-eatings-dirty-secrets?suggid=p040430l. (sorry it is no longer available) It was a very worthwhile documentary and I thought it was excellent. Basically, it exposed certain blogger/vloggers for irresponsible posting and generally tried to open people’s eyes to the fact that what you read on…

Get Real with Kimberley: CBA

Throwing back to that time I just couldn’t be arsed (cba) to train. The motivation was not there. Yesterday (Saturday) I categorically did NOT want to do my gym session (that I should have done Friday). It took me until 6:30 pm in the evening to get my ass to the gym. I had loads of excuses… Pure Gym doesn’t have what I need for my session, I’ll do it tomorrow because I won’t be able to sprint, I need to…

How am I going to afford  a, b, c? The problem here…

Get Real with Kimberley: Truth

I saw this meme a while back and it literally sums up my whole attitude to the fitness industry so perfectly I had to use it. I, of course am the fairy godmother in this meme. Poor cinderella represents the hundreds (thousands probably) of girls that believe there is a quick fix to getting the body they want. IT MAKES ME SO MAD. Honestly, people ask me all the time what is my secret? Train, six days a week for…

Get Real with Kimberley: Self-love

I saw this on Instagram (@kimfitbath) and instantly LOVED it! It is so so easy to focus on areas of improvement whether that be personality, looks, career etc etc but how often do you stop, take stock and actually identify things you LIKE about yourself!!? Plus it’s Valentine’s Day (or it was when I wrote this blog) so it’s the perfect excuse to spread the love! ❣ It’s great to strive to improve but I know that I am always…

Get Real with Kimberley: R+R

  This is a blog about the importance of rest and recovery. I wrote it last year on holiday … I’ve just taken my first holiday abroad in six years…. I know what you’re all thinking “she’s on a plane every other weekend, six years! Lies.” 😂😂 Yes, I’m a frequent traveller. Yes I have also had time off from training in the past six years. But training camps (even warm warm weather athletic ones) do not count as holidays. Getting on…
