The smile on my face... plastered. How is lockdown going for you? Over the past three weeks, I have gone through ALL the emotions, and none of them have involved much productivity. There's a strange thought that started spreading across mainstream social media channels that this is a time to learn a new skill whether… Continue reading The New Normal
Last night my mom asked me what Easter means to me, and I’ve been thinking about it all day. One of my favourite things about this time of the year, (Resurrection Sunday) is the fact that a woman (Mary Magdalene) was the first to have seen Jesus.

On this International Women's Day (8th March 2020) I think of what the Duchess of Sussex said on her visit to Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham on the 6th March 2020, 'you have your mother's, sisters, girlfriends, friends in your life, protect them.'

That’s what keeps us going. Dalai Lama Nothing hypes me up more than a compliment or two… from my… Continue reading Faith, Hope & a Whole Lotta Love
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. Fight for what you want your life to look like. A couple of weeks ago I deleted all of my posts on Instagram. We've all been on a page before and thought the person who deleted all their posts to be a… Continue reading Fight
‘Change can be powerful, if we are brave enough to evolve with it.’ The hardest part of CrossFit is finding a box.

This final piece of athletes' corner is the best...okay, I'm going to say that about every athlete that I interview because it's the truth.
