The Power of 10 and why it could be a real game changer for you

I was off work last week and spent much of that time decorating. I didn’t cross much else off my to-do list which, as per, is hugely frustrating for me. Yet another instance of grand plans which ultimately fell by the wayside. One thing I did manage to do though, other than touching up paintwork …

Don’t despair if you’re struggling to lose weight – it isn’t easy. A weight-loss / fat-shedding update

I’ve written about my need to lose weight on at least 3 previous occasions, the first back in September 2019, and here I am yet again, revisiting the same subject. The reason being that weight-wise, I’m in the same situation today as I was 29 months ago and I’ve recently been questioning why that is. …

What does a successful life mean to you?

In my most recent post, I shared an image which stated that ‘Happiness and success aren’t about how your life is perceived by others. They’re about how life feels to you.’ I wrote about how easy it is to forget this, especially with modern life placing such great importance on keeping up with the Joneses, …

Post number 100! Creating momentum.

So, here we are. In what seems like the blink of an eye, this is post number 100 for Yes, You Can Do It. 100 posts since I took that nervous first step back on the 5th May 2019. 100 posts where I have, at times, bared my soul for all to see. If you’d …

Please don’t become a slave to the scales – a weight-loss update

I’ve written previously about my relationship with food and a need to lose weight, primarily in the posts Why my relationship with food is the most complex in my life and needs to change (Feb 2021 – link here), Using food & alcohol as a comfort blanket (Jul 2019 – link here), Time to change …

If you spend time with me, you may begin believing in yourself…

I try not to live a life filled with regrets. For me, it is much better to look forward and consider how life can be improved rather than wallowing in past mistakes. If I did this, I may rue missed opportunities and think too much about how a lack of confidence has, at times, seen …

Things I don’t do / haven’t done as a result of lacking confidence / having low self-esteem

As a result of last week’s weight-loss update, I got to thinking about how I might feel once I finally achieve that goal and get to where I want to be physically. That made me consider what I don’t currently do and haven’t done in the past as a result of low self-confidence / a …

Weight-loss update

Back in September I wrote a post titled ‘Time to change for good, starting with body fat’ ( link here ). In that post, I wrote that I believed being overweight is the primary cause of my anxiety, low self-esteem and lack of confidence. I also wrote about the need, for many reasons, to do …

Being kind all the time isn’t easy so try asking yourself – what would my children want me to do here?

A last-minute change of subject matter this week following the tragic death of Caroline Flack yesterday. I’m not going to write in-depth about my thoughts on the downsides of the media, internet trolls, and the Crown Prosecution Service, primarily as this will turn into something of a scathing, angry diatribe; something I’d rather avoid here. …

Anxiety and Imposter Syndrome rear their ugly heads once again

Oh, hello again anxiety and imposter syndrome. I wouldn’t exactly say it’s good to catch-up but it certainly isn’t a surprise that our paths have crossed once more. How delightful that we bump into each other again at an event that I’d been looking forward to for weeks… To add some context to ensure that …
