Have you seen the symmetry of today’s date? It’s seems like a good day to meet the world and life’s challenges head on.

My Gut Cleanse group are 6 days in and today is the start of the most challenging phase, no excuses we are on it and working towards a healthier gut in 2018!

Today is the day that we return to our classes…goodness, I’ve missed them. I’ve missed the people, friendships, the collective energy and motivation, the great laughs and despite having my own gym and training almost every day, I missed working out and dancing with you guys.

You haven’t been far from my thoughts and I’ve been putting together great music, class content and stonking routines, which I can’t wait to share with you. I’ve had a chance to spend time thinking about what trainings I want to attend this year and what I want to do with my clients, classes and business.

I really did need that time off though. I hadn’t realised how exhausted I was, the Christmas build up with classes, masterclasses, presentations and training plus regular Christmas stuff took it out of me. The break also gave Dec and I some time together (amazingly, we are still talking to each other, ha ha).

I’ve been thinking about my own goals and am aware that it’s easy to think about all the things we want to achieve, do etc. but we can become overwhelmed by changing too much in one go, so I’ve decided to make one change a week at a time (although some are linked, so can be done together).

Some things have to be changed before others whilst some things can happen in any order.


Keep it simple

How about writing a list of positive changes you would like to make and next to each one what that change will do for you and how you will do it.

Cut them out so they are on slips of paper and put them in a sandwhich bag shake it up and choose one slip. Make that change, then next week choose another whilst maintaining the first and so on.

Here are a few of my changes…

Drink more water – good for heath, mental function, energy, figure and skin – refill and drink small bottles 5 times throughout the day.

Go to bed earlier, get up earlier – good for health, energy, mental function, figure and face – bed by 10.30pm, lights out by 11pm – get up when I wake up.

Read more fiction – relax my mind – read for half an hour before bed and make opportunities during the day.

Daily meditation releases tension and relaxes the mind – good for health and mental clarity – 20-30 minutes after lunch.

Less time on the computer – saves time, better for mind and body wellbeing – check in to social media three times a day only, surf net once per day.

These are just a few of mine to give you an idea and I’ve put it out there now so it makes me more accountable.

How about sharing your plans with someone else whom you trust and will hold you accountable?


What do you want?

I write these missives every week and frequently ask questions and request feedback. Very few of you respond although I do get messages saying that you find them useful, informative and inspirational.

What do you want to know, have more or less of and so on? Do you have anything you want to share with our DYBO family, information, education, news etc.

Over to you!

High Protein filling and healthy lunch in a box

Eating healthily at work can be challenging and expensive if you buy from a canteen or nearby shops. How about making this up the night before and use good old fashioned Tupperware – it’s cheaper than eating out and you know exactly how much protein, carbs and calories you are eating.

Hard boiled eggs, guacamole, salsa, grilled Portobello mushrooms and red bell pepper slices.

Have a fab week and I can’t wait to see you!

Love ya,

Helen xx
