Weight Loss: February Review

I don’t deny that February did not go to plan. I quite simply could not be bothered. However, someone out there had my back and I walked away with a 0.5lb loss for the month, which most certainly was not deserved. The month was quite a sociable one for me – I had Valentines Day, […]

Why We Need To Stop Thinking We Can Do It All

  There is a lot of debate as to whether stress is good or bad for you, with some people arguing that stress makes me you more productive. Which I don’t dispute. However, I maintain that too much stress (be it good or bad) still negatively impacts on the body… otherwise we’d be able to […]

Why I Quit My Job

Last time I blogged I was in a very dark place. I’m still not in the best of places but I’m feeling slightly better. The week got more disastrous after that post. On Tuesday I went on a visit to find a school in the community and TWO Sat Nav’s failed to get me to […]

Hitting Rock Bottom

I have been desperately trying to stay as positive as I can recently, but today I’m struggling. To be honest, I know people go even lower than I am but today the feelings of disappointment, anger and failure are real to me. I’ve discussed it before but I have always had a strong internal drive […]

Living Life with Epilepsy

I have been inspired by Hannah Witton to write this post as she continues to blog about her chronic illness. I will confess that I am lucky. Which is an unusual comment to make when discussing a diagnosis of epilepsy. I am lucky because I have been able to continue my life. It hasn’t come easy (but […]
