Sheffield lifecoach Nicky Valantine is practising what she preaches.
Her mantra is ‘feel the fear’ - then get on with changing your life. And as she helps clients stick to New Year resolutions, she’s made a vow of her own.
“I usually face the scales each January, but this time it’s going to be different. I am focusing on my health and well-being,” says mum of two Nicky, of Wadsley.
“I had a hectic last half of 2013 and didn’t look after my body well. I want to eat more healthily and that means increasing cooking skills that only went as far as following what it said on a packet. I’ve started cooking with friends who enjoy cooking and already my repertoire has increased. I found this fish recipe very easy to do and it tastes fabulous.”
