About A&P – Unlocking your Body’s Unique Code:

We want to help you understand why your previous attempts at taking control of your body, weight and health have either been unsuccessful, or unsustainable.

Your body is a blueprint of your long-term hormonal imbalances: if you’re storing more weight around your middle (Apple) then you’ll need a completely different approach to nutrition and exercise than someone else who’s carrying more weight on their legs, bum and thighs (Pear).  Internal chemistry, and specific hormones, determine where we store fat, and how easy it is to lose it.

“We are as different on the inside as we are on the outside, so no two women will respond to the same plan in the same way.”

This is why the cookie-cutter approach just doesn’t work for the majority of women.

 Why doesn’t everyone talk about this?

Because they just don’t know themselves, therefore they have to resort to a generic, one-size-fits-all approach, specifically the advice that to lose weight “you just need to eat less and exercise more.” This is one of the most widely perpetuated myths, which is damaging women’s mental health. We teach our clients to ditch the “dieting mindset” and to embrace a Nourishing Mindset, where all the decisions you make are made from a position of love, care and respect.

As we come into our ‘prime’ we often have a bit more determination to fulfil our dreams, whether it be to visit that far off destination, run naked through the woods or learn a musical instrument.  Well, I am talking about the latter, and how fulfilling would it be to pick up a guitar and start strumming at a party or even among close family and friends.  How many times have you been mesmerised by the funky guy or girl who is able to do that, and has the talent and ability to write their own lyrics and their own songs.

More and more people are fulfilling their dreams, and even if you are not going to be the next winner of Britain’s Got Talent or the X Factor, (and stranger things have happened), it is guaranteed to be one of the most therapeutic things you could possibly do.

I can talk from experience, as I have recently achieved a life long ambition to learn guitar, after having found a teacher locally, a young funky guy himself, who resides on the outskirts of Beaconsfield.  He is a musician through and through, with waist long silky hair and an equally smooth voice, but with a sympathetic ear for my early stumbles on my favourite musical instrument, and after the first couple of months I am learning fast, and have just written my first song, which I am going to try out at my next social gathering.

It also came up as a result of a life coaching experience that I should give this as a present to myself after a lifetime of bringing up a family, caring for an ailing Mum and being a very committed wife and Mother.  But you don’t have to wait until the kids have flown the nest, this should be a gift as a recognition of your own self worth and courage as it takes that to even start to explore the options of living your dream or at least one of them.

It sounds crazy now, but my main fear was knowing how to tune the instrument – but with iphones and apps, this is the most simple aspect of learning to play.  So if your fear is holding you back from achieving one of your life goals, whatever that is, look at ways to overcome the obstacles and move forward.

My other reservation was that I am always ultra busy, as I run a demanding business, and wouldn’t have the time.  Another simple solution, I now get up half an hour earlier in the mornings and put aside that time to practise, and mission accomplished.

Hopefully this will have inspired you to weigh up the options of ticking off something on your bucket list whatever that may be, even if it takes a few months of procrastination, after all how bad can it be?  You may say, ‘well I have waited this long’, but my advice would be ‘there is no time like the present’ – and the present is definitely yours for the taking.
