Yep, you read it right I am training for a half marathon! Can you even believe it? I can’t even believe I’m writing it let alone running it next year. This healthier me update is an exciting one but also one with alot of mixed feelings – I’ll explain why later.Read more
Over the last few months I have shared some of my journey to becoming a healthier me, and I wanted to continue sharing updates and inspiration for you all. My journey has now nearly come to half a year, which is so crazy to think about. I started this journey the first week of April, and now we are in August. I remember counting down the days and thinking, one step closer to being where I want to be. And now here we are, 5 months in and I am feeling better than ever.Read more
For the longest time I have wanted to start my own weight loss journey, but there was always something stopping me. “I’ll start on Monday” or “I can’t do it this week because I’m on holiday.” I’m sure alot of you can relate to those statements. There was always something stopping me from doing it, even though I knew I needed to. After the 3rd lockdown in England, I really tried my hardest to do what I could to get healthier. Both physically and mentally. I went for 2 walks a day, I tried intermittent fasting and I just kept on gaining weight. I really struggled with body image.Read more
Without fail towards the end of December, we always hear the words ‘New Year’s resolutions’ being thrown around in conversations. It’s something thats talked about alot, and I’d really love to know where and who started this mess. When I was younger my resolutions was always to lose weight and get healthy, and always without fail I’d give up after a few weeks.
Perhaps thats why I’m not a fan of them. Because every time I have tried, I have failed. So really I don’t see the point because I know I will just fail it again. Why do we love to set ourselves up for failure? Why do we wait for a new year to make changes. It’s the same as “I’ll start on Monday” , which never works. I have never really been a fan of New Years resolutions, just purely for the fact that a new year doesn’t just wipe the slate clean. If you want to make changes then do it now rather than later.Read more

FITNESS, TRAINING & WORKING OUT
These three things sometimes seem to intimidate people. People often don’t have the confidence to walk into a gym or take a fitness class, maybe because they’ve never been to a gym before. Remember the gym is more than just a place to pose in-front of a mirror for a Instagram selfie. The gym can be used as an escape from reality, an escape from their crappy job with a boss that doesn’t appreciate them, or even a place to socialise with friends.Read more
