September always feels like the second New Year – an opportunity to make things happen in the last quarter of 2019! I hope you’ve had a good one!
I have had two NEW Face Book Group launches, so lots of social media and making new contacts.
Here is a behind the scenes look at what I’ve been up to in September 2019.
The end of the summer for me means running in the Great North Run. This year was extra special as it was my 10th which is quite an achievement, even if I say so myself!
I’m always inspired by the masses of runners who raise money for charity.
Running across the TYNE Bridge is a highlight.
I run in memory of my Mum, Rita.
My charity is The Stroke Association.
I’m so grateful to all my friends and family who have donated and supported me over the years. A BIG THANK YOU from me.
Easy Nutrition for Healthy Runners
You may remember that earlier in the year, I launched Easy Nutrition For Healthy Runners together with my great friend and sports nutritionist Karen Campbell.
We hosted our first online programme in July and received great feedback which encouraged us to create a FREE Face Book Group Easy Nutrition for Healthy Runners Health HUB
Each week we have a Health Theme focussed on topics important to runners health, wellbeing and performance.
So far we have covered
- Setting Goals (it’s a new season!)
- Adapting food plans for WINTER running
- Digestive Distress
- Ergogenic Aid (gels, bars, protein powders)
- Pre Race Nutrition

KOKORO Wellbeing Experiences – Launched September 2019
Another exciting collaboration over this summer has been the creation of KOKORO WELLBEING EXPERIENCES and the Kokoro Wellbeing Cafe (free facebook group).
Our desire is for YOU to DREAM, DARE and DISCOVER to have abundant happiness, wellbeing and mental health.
DREAM is about wanting more for your life, DARE is about jumping in and saying “yes to yourself” and DISCOVER is finding out what you require for your own personal formula for happiness, wellbeing and mental wealth.
Transformational Travel has always been one of my loves. So the opportunity to work alongside 3 other wellbeing specialists was something not to be missed. We’re creating a lovely community of like minded people and in 2020 will be offering wellbeing events, experiences and holidays.

Activate Your Health MOJO
Over the summer I’ve been hosting a small group programme online. Clients receive a combination of 1:1 health coaching sessions as well as a monthly GROUP Mastermind Call and behind the scenes support to help them with their health goals.
This particular group has been BUSINESS focussed, particularly on how to THRIVE NOT JUST SURVIVE the conference season.
Much of our work together has been focussed on healthy travel and strategies for fuelling ahead, during and after big business events.
The doors are open for the next group so if you’d like to Activate Your Health MOJO there is plenty of time to DO IT before year end.
One of the group said to me this week “I’m so glad I made the decision to join when I did, after all I’ve realised there is never a good time”.
Call me if you’d like to find out more. You’d be welcome to have a GUEST PASS for a session so you may try before you buy!

I kicked off September 2019 with a Marketing Strategy Review with Nicola Burt-Skinner of Blue Jeans Velvet Shoes. With so many projects on it’s great to have Nicola’s expertise to keep me focussed!
Mid month, on a lovely sunny Friday afternoon, I was invited to a Success Afternoon Tea hosted by my business coach Tiana Wilson-Bays. A really enjoyable occasion meeting up with business contacts and celebrating our businesses.
Every month, I take a day or two to top up on CPD (Continual Professional Development). This time I was refreshing my knowledge with Genova Diagnostics on a number of Functional Screening Tests, one of them being The GI Effects Test which is an in-depth digestive test which helps to get to the root of digestive symptoms and helps to inform nutritional support to help resolve digestive health issues. Please let me know if you’d be interested in functional screening tests.
