Well, the last few weeks have been absolutely hectic but I finally feel like I have my time back and I am SO ready to get back to the routine that makes me feel good.
The last 2 months consisted of 9 flights, god knows how many different beds, lots of wine, bread, dinners, desserts, and...
Did you know that one of the characteristics of a successful dieter is that they perceive that the benefits (e.g. feeling leaner, fitter, healthier etc.) outweighs the costs (e.g. the time, effort and money that is put into training and nutrition)?
This feels very apt to talk about these...
First of all - have you ever looked at somebody and thought “Wow, they’ve gotten really fat” after their holiday?
Nobody is thinking that about you.
But it doesn’t matter what other people think. The most important thing is how you...
I put a poll on instagram this morning with a slice of toast with raspberry jam on it, or a slice of toast with two eggs on it, and asked people which they would choose if their goal is to drop body fat. I also put up a box where people could explain why they made their choice.
The other day, I was enjoying my berries, in what I think* was full-fat greek yoghurt the other day, and I came to a realisation:
*my portuguese is not as good as it used to be

But what sets us apart is our ability to change your mindset around it.
We’ve seen so many people use the last two years to focus on getting a good routine around training and...
I was chatting to Caireann (one of our amazing coaches in The Furnace) yesterday. She asked where I want to go with the business.
I told her I would love to put us out of business.
And I’m serious.
I want women to understand their bodies, how to fuel it and how to train...
I think I might be finally growing up. I’ve had the strong urge to purchase an airfryer for a while now.
As you may know - in Bali, there is a great service called GoJek, which is basically UberEats but much cheaper and a huge selection of food.
It just doesn’t make...
I think the biggest block to long term fat loss, is the pursuit of short term fat loss.
It’s May now. If you are going into the summer thinking “I need to lose weight asap”, I hate to tell you - it probably won’t happen. And if it does, it probably won’t last....
I’ve realised now that there has been over 2000 women through The Furnace in the last two years.
These are not women who have never dieted before.

It’s been a weird couple of years, learning, acknowledging, improving.
You know the saying ‘when you know better, do better’? That’s how I’ve been living my life and changing my messaging on instagram over the last couple of years.
