In fact, it can be one of the most frustrating and confusing things you try. Each day there is a new study out, a new bestseller promising the secret to quick results, a new diet saying something completely different from the last, all promising quick easy results.

Who and what should you believe, how do you stay consistent, how do you incorporate better eating into your busy life and what kind of nutrition programme or diet is best for you and your goals?

You start to make strides, but keep finding yourself saying, "I'll start back up on Monday!" Most likely what you are following involves some sort of restriction. Maybe you feel like you know what to do but just aren't seeing the results you want?

You move from programme to programme, diet to diet, reading every article that pops up on social media promising the magic answer.

There are meal plans of every type available online so why is it so hard to lose weight? It's because weight loss is not just about food and meal plans, there is one thing missing from all of the above and it's accountability. It is also the one thing that has the biggest impact on your success.

You see, you can have all the nutrition information in the world. Even if you know what to do, you know the right foods to eat and what to avoid, you can still struggle in reaching your goals.

ACCOUNTABILITY

.

Something special happens when you hire a coach. Your level of accountability significantly increases and this, in turn, helps you to stay consistent and to be successful in reaching your goals!

It's easy to commit. It's also easy to overcommit, become overwhelmed and quit.
The tough part is trying to stay committed. We have all been there. This is why here at Activate Nutrition we focus on getting our clients invested in their health - not for the short term, but for life. We do this by introducing small, weekly habit changes that build off the previous one. This helps our clients from getting overwhelmed and actually keeps them excited as they conquer new goals and experience wins. In fact, research shows you are 80% more likely to establish a new habit if you introduce it one at a time, and if you try to introduce three or more new habits then this plummets to a 5% success rate!

At Activate we have seen some incredible results. One of the things we love most is how well our members continue to do once they leave our nutrition programme and to see how empowered they are to take responsibility for their own health.

We know that the truth is it takes time to make a change which is why we like to work on one thing at a time. Making a change on your own is hard, if it were easy you would have done it by now. This is where having a nutrition coach can help with offering you that much needed extra support and accountability and to help you set a plan and help you to carry it out.

If you are ready for the change you want and to get rid of the confusion surrounding your nutrition, we are ready to help you!

What a better way for a local business to celebrate its silver jubilee than to be named in the Top 10 places to stay in Ireland especially as they prepare to reopen after the pandemic.

Owners Kathy and Don Brosnan, who run Applecroft House in Woodlawn, were named number 6 in Ireland’s Top 10 B&Bs for 2022 by the Irish Independent ‘Reader Travel Awards’ while Ireland’s Best B&B was named as Dingle’s Pax House.

The couple began their business in 1997 and are very happy with the feedback from visitors who voted for their B&B, especially after two difficult years.

“I’m thrilled, especially as we’re celebrating our silver jubilee this year,” Kathy told the Killarney Advertiser.

The couple built their house in the early ’80s and aptly named it ‘Applecroft’ as it was built in a field which has an orchard.

In the late ’90s they opened five spacious rooms up, each with its own theme; 
‘Poet’s Corner’, ‘Past Times’, ‘The 19th Green’, ‘The Race-goer’s Club’ and ‘The Kerry Way’, for guests as Kathy, who worked in The Europe Hotel and the Great Southern Killarney for many years, had a passion to bring a great stay experience to guests visiting Killarney. They kept themselves busy planting in their two acre garden during the pandemic.

They have won numerous awards over the years and have had film crews in but this latest award is the icing on the cake for the couple who are looking forward to reopening in late March.

“It’s amazing, and a bonus especially with the two years we’ve had. We’ve never experienced anything like that. It was “wow” – we were preparing to reopen on St Patrick’s Day that year and all of a sudden everything closed down on the 16. It was a big shock.”

Don creates amazing bread and scones which guests rave about, she added.

“I was delighted as we came tenth for breakfast and sixth for the B&B.”

Legion GAA Club has led tributes to one of their most ‘fervent’ supporters who passed away on Tuesday.

Described as one of the town’s ‘old stock’, Tim Looney from Coolgraine Park and late of Daltons Avenue, was a central part of Killarney’s rich sporting heritage.

As well as a life-long supporter of Legion, he played basketball in the famous town leagues of the 1970s and the seven-a-side soccer ‘Wipeouts’ competitions.

“He was a very proud Legion man and always flew the green and white flag out his window whenever the club was playing in a big game,” PRO Enda Walshe told the Killarney Advertiser. “He was a fervent loyal club supporter but was also one of the characters of the winter basketball leagues.”

Tim was also a regular participant in Dart Pub Leagues back in the 1970s and 1980s.

Tim’s funeral took place today (Friday). He was laid to rest at Killarney Burial Ground after 10am Mass St Mary’s Cathedral.

Tim is survived by his wife Nuala, his children Joanne, Paudie and Timmy, and was a much loved grandfather to Stephen, Makaela, Chloe, Padraic, Keelan, Alex and the late Lorna. He will also be sadly missed by his daughters-in-law Margaret and Sharon, son-in-law Tony, sisters Kathleen, Sheila and Ann, brothers Lewis-John and Paddy, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, relatives, neighbours and many great friends.
