Baby Diaries 2

Posted on February 24, 2018 at 12:20 PM Comments comments (234)
Many of you may have seen on my Facebook page that I asked whether anyone followed a sleeping program for their baby and the reason for this or the reason why they didnt. I started looking at plans not because Mea was a bad sleeper (she was pretty good) but because I wanted to understand more about babies sleep patterns and awake times. You know me I love to research and learn about new things. But I did not want a program that controlled my social life, as I wanted to go out with Mea when I cho... Read Full Post »

Meet the cover instructors
A few people have been asking about my maternity leave so I thought it would be best to explain everything now. I am hoping to stop work at the end of October and let my cover instructors take over from November, then I am hoping to take back my Windmill Hill Community Centre classes from 2nd week in January. I know it may not seem like a long time off especially for those who are parents and know what it is like but we are very lucky we have support from our pa...

Sarahs Pregnancy Diaries 4

Pregnancy Diaries I am 28 weeks pregnant and now I feel pregnant! So what have I notice the past month? -I am so indecisive in food. I can't prepare anything as if I did prepare a meal in the morning for my evening meal I bet when it comes to it I'll be like nope don't fancy it. So I got to see what I fancy to eat exactly when I'm ready to eat and that's so hard for me because I can't buy stuff in as it will go off. But I am making do with gluten free bread, hummus and fruit but as I'm writing... Read Full Post »

Sarahs Pregnancy Diaries: I am now 24 weeks, so 6 months! Wow 6 months being pregnant seems like a long time when you think about it but in a way it doesn�??t. I am still managing to do everything as normal, and everyone tells me I am in the �??nice�?? stage of pregnancy as I am not feeling ill or I am not too big. I have been podded, touched and wooed over the most I can ever be, well my stomach has. I do still find it very strange that a bump can have this much effort over people but hay ho!...

Sarahs Pregnancy diaries Well what a month it has been. My morning sickness has now gone yay! But I am suffering with headaches (I think due to all the hormonal imbalances that is occurring in my body) but I take these headaches any day over my sickness. We also found out Tuesday that we are having a girl and I am now starting to feel big in the bump and her moving around, so a lot has happened for me in June. In my diaries I thought I would touch on a few things I have learnt being pregnant t... Read Full Post »

Sarah�??s Pregnancy diaries Well many of you know now I am pregnant and I am 16 weeks. A few things I�??ve learnt being pregnant. -Thali Café is the best curry place (Curry helped me through my very tough morning sickness) - Asda�??s wotsits are better than the real wotsits I feel (I�??ve had a lot of different wotsits as cheese and crisps are what my baby wants) - I no longer crave sweet food but savoury (now that�??s a biggie as I LOVED my sweet food) - Galaxy Chocolate is the only choco...

Diastasis Recti or Seperation of the stomach

Posted on April 6, 2017 at 4:15 AM Comments comments (0)
During pregnancy the abdominal muscles go through a massive amount of stretching. The two bands of recti muscles (stomach muscles), which were lying right next to each other, stretch away from the midline to make room for the growing baby. The belly button is the weakest area and tends to be the bigger amount of separation compared to where I test above and below the naval. The size of the separation can vary from a small gap measuring 2-3cm wide and 2-5 cm long to a larger gap of 12-20 cm wide.... Read Full Post »

As we age our hormone levels start to decline. In some cases it has been reported that girls in their mid-20 are experiencing a decline in the 3 big sex hormones, Testosterone, Progesterone and Oestrogen. This has a huge impact on health, fatloss, brain function, and mood and can even change your personality. But there are ways you can boost your hormone levels through sleep, stress management, nutrition, fitness, especially weight training and supplementation. Sleep: Maybe you get to... Read Full Post »

You have all heard me talk about it at some point, or know that I am doing my second level course in it at the moment (hence all the cancelled classes) and some of you have even tried it but I thought it might be useful reading about it from a point of view of someone who had a session with me. I treated Amy (who is owner of Empowered Fitness where I have my PT sessions) a couple of weeks ago and this is what she send out to her clients about what she found out from having kinesiology on her. ...

Cortisol Known as a stress hormone and produced by our adrenal glands, which is increased by lack of sleep, over exercising/constantly exercising for long periods. There are more cortisol receptors in your stomach therefore it is a place that will hold body fat if your levels are high. Cortisol weakens your immune system, contributes to infertility, increases blood pressure and reduces bone formation (contributing to osteoporosis) Cortisol are always present in our bodies but it is the...
