Welcome to the New Myomytv and a New Journey

by Marianne  - May 13, 2014

Well, it only took me about 6 months to launch a new site!! haha. Totally my fault for taking on too much as usual.  Since my last blog post, more changes have happened in my life and I now feel totally ready to begin blogging again.

In the last 12 months I have:

– Left my Nursing job to blog and coach full time

– Got engaged AND married 😀

– Had surgery to remove my breast implants <– there is a blog to come on this!

– Moved to Saudi Arabia from Ireland <– a blog to come on this, too!

– Been in and out of pain and forced to reduce my training (just read my last blog posts “In Sickness and in Health” Part 1 and Part 2)


When I look back, this has probably been one of the most eventful years of my life and I can honestly say that I have also gone through a inner growth spurt.  At every stage, I was faced with inner demons that have catapulted themselves into the forefront of my life to be dealt with once and for all.  There’s no hiding behind my successes or popularity, or even my looks. Everything is being laid down for me to truly see who’s left.  The saying usually goes “I got through it in one piece” as if you should try not to fall apart, but actually I got through by losing pieces that it turns out I didn’t need. Perhaps it is more like a work in REGRESS. Letting go to move forward.

You know i love fitness and I will always have a special place in my heart for designing home workouts, but i feel I need a break from that.  I will still be here to write about fitness and coach online clients, but my passion has shifted and I really hope to go beyond the realm of the home gym and venture inward and explore what drives us to certain goals, how we measure success, and share the things I am leaving behind.

So let me introduce to you the NEW Chapter of Myomytv as I take the next steps and begin to share with you my exploration of experience through faith, fitness and plain transparency about the walls i have allowed to fall.  Come with me and let me share my journey: body, mind and soul.

  1. Wow Marianne I am really impressed. You have been such a great inspiration in the last few years. I still go back to your workout archives and watch and do your workouts. You keep me motivated, so it is nice to see that you are back.
    great website and blog by the way.

    Cheers from NYC

  2. FINALLY!!! Had time to start exploring your new website 🙂 I like it so far and I am starting to do your workouts again starting this week. Been off for a while, but since a lot of positive things are going on now, I feel like I have to go back to training! :))

  3. Marianne, I’ve followed your site for years (off and on) and I’m so happy to see this beautiful new site and that you’ve gotten married! Congratulations!! I’m finally at the point where I have the courage to actually do your beginner workouts (and not just reading your blog). I’ve finally conquered my food issues that kept me yo-yoing on and off diets and fitness plans! I now have my gym all set up and I’m ready to start my own journey of your beginner videos. May God bless you, your husband and your future together!

  4. I love your latest blog about put on a mask.
    Thanks for your honesty in this blog and I too
    need to do some work in this area.
    I’ll be happy when…..that is me!

    Thank you,

    1. I love your last blog even though you didn’t write much.
      I love your honesty and I know what ever you write will be authentic and
      from the heart.

      Thanks so much and looking forward to your next blog!


  5. The blog looks great! And I’m so excited to go on this journey with you. For the record, as one of your clients, I consider you so much more than a trainer. You’ve been like a life coach! 🙂

  6. Nice design, but what’s with using a lower-case “i” in place of “I”? Not only are (were?) you a better writer than that, you’re IRISH–you guys are world-famous for great writing. Irish school kids put North Americans to shame when it comes to grammar and clarity. With such a beautiful new blog, why undermine your own message by writing like you’re texting posts from the back of a taxi?

      1. You’re a good writer when you want to be. But don’t write like a rebellious semi-literate teenager, with “i”; write like a woman: “I”. You talk about serious subjects, you’re thoughtful, and you have useful insights.

        Plus don’t forget: the Irish* have produced many of the best writers in the world. You’ve got a standard to live up to!

        * with half my family originally from Portadown, I can say that.

        1. I appreciate your point, Mike: When I got my new laptop, the Caps Lock would stick on the lower case and autocorrect worked at the beginning of a sentence, but not in the middle. And I became lazy in correcting it myself. To be honest, I didn’t even realise I had developed the habit until my husband pointed it out the day he read this blog.

          Now, I want to point out that while you are correct in noticing my grammatical bad habit, I never set out to be anything but a good writer, and I found the bulk of your message to be judgemental and condescending – by believing my error is akin to a rebellious teenager or that making the error somehow = semi-literacy – which, as I have now explained, is invalid and I found it rude.

          While I’m very happy that you are of Irish descent, to be blunt, it does not validate what you are saying.

  7. It’s blog christmas for us!!! how wonderful to have you back!. I hope you’re doing great in your new place. all the best.
