18 Mar Make March Marvellous
A massive hello and hug to you – it’s March and finally we’re starting to see and feel the first throws of Spring. There is nothing more optimistic I find than the days starting to lengthen, bird song filling the morning air and the winter chill defrosting for another year – hurrah.
After a busy few months, I decided to take some time out from my TV appearances on ITV’s This Morning and Celebrity Big Brother, and give my mind and body a good dose of TLC.
What better place than the Inside Out Retreat in Spain to do just that. The team there, founded by Jeroen and Gareth, have devised a terrific week long ‘retreat’ which includes a 3 day juice detox, bespoke exercises classes, picturesque mountain walks and Mind Set classes and talks to help recharge and re-focus your thoughts & mental state.
What is so special about this place is that, unlike other ‘bootcamps’ and weight loss retreats, this is so much more, and put it’s emphasis on relaxation, recharging the ‘whole’ body, and giving yourself a much needed pamper and MOT. A healthy mind goes hand in hand with a healthy body.
I’m currently in training for the Mind 3000 Trek with my celebrity team, and the daily organised mountain hikes were the perfect training exercise to help build my cardio fitness and stamina for the challenge ahead in May 2015.
I’d never juicing before, and initially i found the concept of drinking nothing by juice for 3 days rather daunting. However, my fears were soon allayed, as the deliciously freshly prepared juices were tasty and filling and with so much choice I was never bored.
Three days in (once the detox headache had subsided) and I was feeling so much more energised, happier, and lighter. Food is introduced on day 4 and it’s worth the wait – home cooked vegan lasagnes, soups and salads, it’s worthy of a Michelin star – truly.
I enjoyed the retreat with my friend, TV presenter Kate MacIntyre, and we had such a lovely time chatting, relaxing and focusing on our future goals together.
I’m looking forward to joining up with the Inside Out team, and celebrating their new name change, as we work together on fab ideas to help you be the best you can be. You can email me for 121 sessions or advice at email@example.com or by filling in the form on this site.
You can check out what the Retreat is all about http://www.insideoutresorts.com and feel free to email the team to ask them any questions, or to book in for a luxurious week of ‘you time’.
Following my lovely week, it was back to the day job, my lovely coaching clients and my telly job. I was also able to show off the results of my Inside Out detox on the red carpet at the Princes Trust Celebrate Success Awards where I took up my role once again as red carpet reporter and enjoyed chatting to the likes of Simon Cowell, Thierry Henry and HRH The Prince of Wales.
Have a great month my friends, be kind to yourself, remember YOU have what it takes to be the best you can be, everyone needs a helping hand at some point in their life, so do get in touch if I can be of any assistance.
Love and positivity
