How I Motivate Myself To Exercise – My 6 Top Tips

I find it hard to get motivated to exercise at the best of times, and you may too. I know that once I’m at the gym (or doing whatever exercise I’m planning to do), I enjoy it. So why do I have to go through that whole rigmarole of huffing and puffing, moaning and groaning, […]

Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 65 (Did I Reach That 4 Stone Milestone?)

Now not that I imagine for one minute that any of you sit looking at your phones Sunday nights thinking, “Well she’s late with her blog post this week – I can’t possibly carry on with my evening until I’ve read it,” but nonetheless … I’m sorry the post is late this week. As I […]

Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 62 (fish & chips on the beach)

Evening all. I’ve just had the most wonderful of weekends again so without wanting to appear too gushing, let’s just say that things, and you know what, or rather who I mean, are going well. I just ate fish and chips on Whitstable beach, washed down with a pint of Whitstable Bay lager … and […]

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s healthy living update blog post (clearly still haven’t thought of a catchier title!)   I’ve had a really good week.

Time for this week’s healthy lifestyle update and It’s been a frustrating week. Frustrating and incredibly difficult.

Well hello there. I’m writing this blog post whilst eating Lindt white chocolate Lindor sweets – you know the round balls? Ahem. ‘Irrestibably smooth.’ I’D SAY. Dang.
