Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 69 (ruddy brilliant news!)

Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone, apologies I’m a day late posting this week’s healthy lifestyle update but y’know, beer, pizza, pub, snogging … it really takes it out of you.   As you may have seen me mention, last week was the Lakeside/Jo Frost event that I was really stressing about and, of course, it […]

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 […]

Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 60 (BIG-ish news)

Time for this week’s healthy lifestyle update and I must just say that this week was rather … interesting. Ahem. Because … and it’s no big deal because it’s very early days, but I’ve started seeing someone. As in *gasp* a new man friend.   Yes, I didn’t think the day would come either when […]

Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 56 (… the guilt of the ready meal)

Hi everyone. I’ve just got back from spending a night in a hotel on my own … oh my, it was wonderful! More of that in a separate blog post but suffice to say, getting away from day to day life on your own is great for recharging your batteries. (And for all-you-can-eat buffet breakfasts.) […]

Slimming World – Week 10 Results

Slimming World – Week 4 Results

    Time for a Slimming World update – and I’ve just completed Week 4. It’s been a funny old week. Dad has gone downhill somewhat and has been in hospital  for a few days and as much as I remain positive around him (you have to don’t you?), it’s been awfully stressful. Coupled with […]

Slimming World Chocolate Cake

    Being on a healthy eating plan means that I generally think about chocolate a lot more than usual. Which was a lot beforehand! I don’t find myself particularly hungry on the Slimming World eating plan but I do find myself wanting something chocolatey at around 11am. (And 3pm, and 7pm and 9pm.) And […]

Healthier Drinks for Kids – With Brita Water

  Dexter is a growing tween and boy, don’t I know it. He has always had a healthy appetite shall we say, but the one thing he loves more than anything at the moment (apart from burgers obvs) are smoothies and fruit juices.   Thankfully, he has never liked Coke, but I allow him the […]
