Active Women Interview – Meet Jo Moseley

  I’m excited to introduce you to Jo Moseley who has been such an inspiration to me with her regular postings on social media. She has such a thirst for activity and an infectious enthusiasm. I was so happy when she agreed to contribute to my book, ‘Sorted: The Active Woman’s Guide to Health’ as she is such a shining example of how getting older doesn’t mean doing less. Read how an indoor rowing machine helped transform her life and hear about her new goal of being a surfer. She’s a true #ActiveWoman. Tell us a bit about yourself Jo. I’m a 52 year old working Mum of two teenage boys living on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. You can follow me on Twitter & Instagram¬†or join me at Healthy Happy 50 for stories, tips, news and inspiration for sporty women #womenover50. When did you decide to start exercising regularly and why was that? I started exercising regularly when I was 48. I was finding life stressful and wasn’t sleeping well. Looking back I …

Active Women Interview – meet Carol Wilson

The women I speak to give many different reasons for why they started exercising. For some it’s been a photograph they didn’t like, for others, just the desire to be healthier. For Carol it was an imminent wedding but being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes was the thing that really triggered her health drive. Here she tells me how exercise has done way more for her than just lower her blood sugar. ¬†

Active Women Interview – meet Dr Jenny Wilson

I love this interview with Jenny, it’s packed full of inspiration. From body image concerns to fitting exercise into her busy day. From learning to guide a visually impaired runner to being a role model for her patients. Her stories of breast cancer, depression and odd shaped bottoms will have you reaching for your parkrun barcode. I’m super grateful to her for sharing her life so we can all benefit from her wisdom and enthusiasm. A true #ActiveWoman.

Active Women Interview – meet Sumi

I love this Active Women interview with Sumita Sarma. From growing up with Bollywood in India to discovering exercise through desperation, there’s something we can all learn from it. It really reflects the fact that the benefits of being active go vastly beyond the way our body looks. The sky is the limit for Sumi.

Active Women Interview – meet Leigh Kendall

It was actually a blog that Leigh wrote that gave me the idea to start this interview series. She’d posted a photo of her pink boxing gloves and explained how becoming active and punching stuff was helping her to improve her wellbeing and cope with all that life had thrown at her (and that’s more than most of us have had to deal with). To me she was a shining example of how finding the activity that suits you is crucial and how the benefits are huge. I love the way she has gone on to inspire others by posting lots of her exercise sessions online. Do pop over to her blog to have a look, especially if you’re lacking in motivation. Boy, she works hard! Tell us a bit about yourself Leigh I’m a communications professional, writer, wellbeing coach, and patient leader. In 2014 at just 24 weeks’ pregnant I was diagnosed with the rare, life-threatening pregnancy complication HELLP syndrome. Unless the baby is born, both mum and baby will die. Sadly, my son …
