Why I Chose To Stop Counting Calories

August 29, 2017 No Comments

The decision to stop counting calories has not been a quick one, in fact, it has taken me years to realise just how damaging it can be. Getting to this point though has been a long and difficult journey and I’ve had to do a lot of self-education to get here. Back in 2012, I discovered how I could use the popular app, Myfitnesspal, to track my calories and lose a whole lot of weight. At…

The Mix and Match Guide to Meditation

August 27, 2017 No Comments

I’ve been meditating on and off for about 3 years now and I’ve read my fair share of articles offering a ‘guide to meditation’. Sometimes I’ll be all in and do it religiously, sometimes I’ll make the excuse to myself that I’m too busy and couldn’t possibly fit a meditation in. I’ve known some people to exclaim that they tried meditation once, couldn’t quieten their mind and so banished it from their lives forever. If you’re…

Can Mindfulness Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals?

August 26, 2017 No Comments

  Many of us will set fitness goals and think purely about the aesthetic results we’d like to see from all of our hard work. It’s a trap that many people fall into and focusing purely on how we look can set us up for failure or disappointment early on. Your fitness goals shouldn’t be just about creating a stronger, leaner body, they should also factor in the other health benefits, both mentally and physically. Speak to…

How This One Tiny Task Helped Me Gain Body Confidence

August 14, 2017 No Comments

Like most young women, my quest for domination of body confidence is never ending. Despite the fact I am constantly critiquing every lump and bump when I stare into the mirror, my desire for body confidence is as strong as ever! Way back when, I thought body confidence would strike me as soon as I reached my fitness goals and when my body looked the way I wanted it to. So, I set out on a…

My Top 5 Places For Affordable Gym Wear

August 5, 2017 No Comments

One of the biggest things that helps me get back into any fitness routine, is to buy shiny new workout gear. Yes, my vanity can occasionally be put to good use. However, these days, new workout gear, especially good quality stuff that will last you a lifetime, can cost a pretty penny. At the end of the day, workout clothing needs to be resilient and reliable. Nobody wants to split their gusset right in the middle…

What Do My Tattoos Really Mean?

August 5, 2017 No Comments

  Recently I took the plunge and went under the needle for my second tattoo. For years I wanted one but could never decide on what to get. I went through years of designing and scrapping and nearly booking in, then chickening out, but last December I finally committed. I ended up getting an illustration of David Bowie, that my good friend Rachel designed for me, on my left forearm. If you’ve watched any of my vlogs, I hope…

5 Top Tips For Working Out On Your Period

August 5, 2017 No Comments

  The truth of it is, exercise does help to ease period pain and working out on your period is possible, but getting yourself to put on your workout gear and get going is not easy. Recently, I had one of those days where I was irritable, uncomfortable and basically wanted to just lie down, eat chocolate and go to sleep. But I did none of those things. Instead, I decided to push myself to pick…

My Mental Health Story and Why I’m Trekking The Great Wall of China

I’ve already spoken about the fact this blog has been created thanks to my big decision to trek the Great Wall of China in aid of the Mental Health Foundation, I talk all about it on my trekking page! However, there’s a big bit of information missing from this blog and that is my own personal history with mental illness. Which is why I sat down to film a whole video, all about my mental illness…
