My Story

I’m just an ordinary girl, trying to get fitter (and help other people to as well!)

<< Thats me

I’m 26 years old, and I currently live in Downtown Dubai

I know, right?!

The past few years of my life have been pretty incredible; working in France, Mallorca, Switzerland & Ibiza and then the big move to the UAE after meeting my fiancé, Matt.

Before my time working abroad, I had lost a lot of weight for my sisters’ wedding, and I looked really good for it. I felt physically fit and I was comfortable in my skin. At my heaviest, in October 2011, I was 73kg (11st 6lbs/160lbs). I got down to 57.5kg (9st 1lb/127lbs) through a sustained diet and plenty of exercise for the wedding in May 2012.

Fast forward over two years of seasonaire life (bread, cheese & wine in the mountains and fast food, sangria & beer in the sunshine) and I’d undone all of the hard work that I’d put myself through previously, but gained a whole load of memories!

So when I went back to the UK for good in November 2014 (or so I thought) I created this blog…starting off as a place for me to offload and stay accountable for my food and exercise diaries, and morphing into recipes, reviews and eventually promoting my Personal Training business here in Dubai & Abu Dhabi. What a whirlwind!

As in every fitness journey that you read about, I have had my ups and downs. My previous mentality meant that nights out turned into weekends of binging, and moments of unnecessary restriction. Throughout the last 5 years, I’ve learned a lot about the healthy balance of nutrition and exercise and what actually works for me. Unfortunately, this kind of thing is not a cookie cutter, and so I believe that everyone should invest the time to figure out how their body & mind works.

I started off as just someone who wanted to get fitter for her own personal gain, but whilst being here in the UAE, I have studied hard and achieved my Personal Trainer qualifications. It’s all been VERY exciting and I am so happy to be taking on clients both in person & online, and to help them on their own fitness journey.

  2. Hi, I literally just came across your blog and thought I’d say hi 🙂

    I think your story is very similar to mine, I’ve been working abroad in Switzerland and France (ski seasons…hard life indeed!) and it’s been a nightmare for being healthy so I’m very much on the same wavelength – doing lots of reading and trying things out but finding it all so interesting and enjoyable. I started a blog called http://www.neontrainers.com last year when I started clean eating and it was all going great until I went abroad again (and subsequently broke my leg!) so now I’m trying to get super fit and healthy. Anyway, love your blog!
