I’ve Signed Up To WW.UK And Here’s Why…

As you may well be aware, I completed a course in nutrition and weight management last year (which was accredited) and it helped me to learn about macro/micro nutrients and calories and all that jazz. And I won’t lie, it has completely changed how I look at food and I’m much more conscious of what…

The Healthy OT

New Year, New Me. Nah, not really. New Year Same Me. HOWEVER, I have decided to change the name of my blog from Telle’s Nutritional Life to The Healthy OT. When I first set up the blog, I didn’t know whether I would continue as an Occupational Therapist – I continued to believe in everything…

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…

The Pressure of Social Media

Since announcing to close friends and family that I would like to incorporate health and wellbeing coaching into my messy and convoluted career, I have seen a slight surge of people messaging asking me for life advice. Getting it free whilst they can you see. Jokes. But as I’ve spent many nights sitting there with…

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 Importance of Health and Wellbeing

I have dabbled with blogging since 2009 but could never find my niche – but at the same time I knew one day I would return. At the time blogging was generating income for some people, but it was still a bit of a whacky concept. Skip forward 9 years and the world of blogging,…

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…

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…

Career Update: I Think I Have A Plan

As you may know my career and I have hit a bit of a rut and I’ve been busy planning/panicking about my next move. Last Tuesday I ended up having a bit of an epiphany at 1am. Over the next few months, you may notice this blog may change a little as I have grand…
