What Even Is Health and Fitness?

The more time I spend in depths of health and fitness online, the more I wonder what it’s even about – everyone seems to have a slightly different definition which I think, leads to a hell of a lot of confusion. According to the dictionary, health is defined as: “the state of being free from…

My New Year Resolutions – 2019

It is FINALLY 2019! Now normally I don’t hugely set goals for the forthcoming year because I know it’s unlikely I’ll achieve them so why pretend? However, after the ‘fun’ of 2018, I would like to put some goals in place to guide my successes for the forthcoming year. Lose Weight I even bore myself…

2018… You Have Been Weird

I know… I’m rubbish. Since starting my job in October, this blog has taken somewhat of a hit. I’m sorry! However, as we fast approach 2019 (and yes one of my resolutions is to crack on with this again), I thought it would be rather apt to look back on the past 12 months and…

Just A Little Life Update

I am very aware that it’s been AGES since I’ve blogged or vlogged but I am pleased to inform you that I am back! Why the absence? Well I started my new job which I am loving BUT have been absolutely knackered after not working for four months. But because it’s in a school, it’s…

Are Health Foods Worth It?

I will confess that for the past four months I have watched HOURS (probably days) worth of Health and Fitness Youtubers, and I will also admit that I fell for the hard sell of supplements that are regularly portrayed in their videos. Now I am not a nutritional therapist, and I am not qualified to…

Gut Health… Is It Just a Trend?

Until recently, I thought the term ‘gut health’ was trendy. Not even that trendy: only 1.2 million # on the old ‘gram (please bear in mind that famous slimming groups have 17 million and counting). But then as I’ve spent time dabbling in the world of #nutrition, #weightloss, #myweightlossjourney, #paleo, #plantbased I’ve discovered that people…

The Difference Between Wellness and Wellbeing

Why I have decided to tackle this topic on a Monday morning is BEYOND me! Wellness and wellbeing – hot topics of conversation but what they do they even mean? Aren’t they the same? I decided to take this to a dictionary (sadly not Urban Dictionary on this occasion) to find out exactly what each…

Reaching My Goal Weight

I really do wish this was a post stating that my reached my goal weight and here’s how but alas… I’m very much someone who needs something to work towards – career, love life, personal life, health and wellbeing, financial. Just something. The thing with setting goals is that it’s useful to set a time…

I May Be Unemployed but I’m Feeling Empowered

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week… I’ve been busy tying us loose ends at my own old job. Last time I blogged I had just quit my job and I had a week of writing 16 page reports. What I have learnt is that 16 page reports are completely pointless and…
