Archive for January, 2012

Oh dear, my new years resolution to keep on top of my blog has already slipped slightly – I’m a week behind, but in my defense may I point out that it has been an extremely busy week! After a lot of preparation, meetings and a rehearsal I spent all last Friday filming with Reebok NIVEA and M&C Saatchi for the Reebok EasyTone Workout DVD. I have to say it was actually very relaxed and great fun with some quality team work going on between all involved.

I got back very late on Friday night but ready for a family weekend. The highlight of Saturday was a ‘date’ in Waitrose with Hubby- it was the first time in ages that we’d gone together to a supermarket and it felt incredibly ‘naughty’ being alone with him! The freedom obviously went to our heads as we nearly got into trouble trolley racing across the carpark (great cardio vascular exercise though!!)

Once inside, the opportunities for exercise opened up even further as I discovered that I could use the trolley to do rotation exercises to tone up my abs and Hubby used the checkout queue to practise his Pilates.

Back home again I had the boring task of doing a weeks housework in advance in order to have everything ready for my week long trip to The Czech Republic and Slovakia – more on this next week…

The New Year

January 11th, 2012

Life returns more or less back to normal this week with the kids returning to school, mind you any plans I had for a bit more ‘me’ time were trashed last night when the new guinea pigs decided to have some sort of testosterone-fuelled punch-up resulting in the more severely wounded ‘pig’ having to be carried around in the front pouch of my sweatshirt all evening. It’s not the easiest thing in the world attempting to perform squats while simultaneously keeping a guinea pig stuffed up your front!!

Sanity returns later this week when I will be in London filming the DVD for the Reebok Easy Tone Challenge and next week I’m off to Prague and Bratislava to attend Nivea press conferences and photo shoots (hopefully minus the guinea pig!)

On my return, I’m looking forward to a day in the beautiful Kent countryside for the first of my one-day female only BootCamps which will be held on Tuesday 24th January. If you’re interested in coming along to join in the fun and kickstart your new healthier 2012 please contact Annabelle Perry for details at email address hidden

In the meantime, why not treat yourself to a copy of my book: “The Little Exercise Book for a Flat Tummy’. Available to order for download from this website, the book contains a workable programme of exercise, nutrition and self belief that will have you flaunting your very own Fab Abs this summer!
