At the weekend Ryan asked me if I had

noticed that Bodhi had a ruffle around

his neck


On inspection, Bodhi does indeed have

a ruffle, in fact the ruffle was so big he

looked like he was posing for a photo

from Edwardian times


He looked just like Blackadder 🙂


We changed his food recently and he

loves it! Normally it’s difficult to get

him to eat and he’s always been on the

slender side for a rottie


However this roll of fat suggests he’s

been eating just a little too much recently

so we had to come up with an action



which involved some extra exercise each

day and cutting down his biscuits and we

should have him back in shape in a few



Sound familiar?


Bodhi’s ruffle could be compared to a

muffin top or any other roll of fat we

get on our bodies when we eat too much


if you are in good shape and you spot

this creeping on? the best thing you can

do is nip it in the bud and do what Bodhi

is doing


cutting back on the biscuits and increasing

the exercise – that should take care of it


If you have a little more to lose? Like a

couple of stone or even more?


then it might take a bit more work and

some more time


For someone looking to hit a big target

I would suggest making a commitment of

at least 6 – 12 months


and cutting back on the biscuits may not

be enough


BUT it doesn’t take a crazy strict regime



Start at a pace you can keep i.e. 2 nights

a week of exercise and change one area

of your diet at a time, so you can start

with the biscuits and once you’ve got a

handle on that…


look at the next improvement you could



You could also think about doing the

60 Day challenge?


Valerie did the 90 days this time last

year, she told me it was perfect timing

as she lost the weight before Xmas

AND she has kept it off!


It’s a fun challenge and will increase your

exercise and help improve your eating


Use it as a kick start, a booster, dip your

toe in the water


tomorrow is the last day for the bonuses

and if you are worried about getting the

exercise right or looking at what you are



The 1:1 sessions will really help you


It starts on the 1st of October but you

can get started now, it’s £60 and you

can sign up HERE



p.s. I will let you know how Bodhi gets on xx
