    Everything That Goes Through My Head on a First Date

    Getting Ready for a First Date. What am I going to wear? What kind of make-up is appropriate? Does my outfit match where we’re going/what we’re doing? What if they don’t like X that I’m wearing? Fuck it. I don’t care if they don’t like something. This is me (sings the Greatest Showman song in head). Shall I wear a…

    How to Stay Motivated with Fitness When it’s Cold

    When the temperature is close to zero, it can be really difficult to get out of your warm, cosy home to exercise. With the start of the New Year, everyone likes to get back into fitness and become their ‘best selves’. This alone can be the only motivation you need but sometimes you might need that extra little push to get…

    Things I Achieved in 2017

    Rather than setting myself goals an obscure amount of goals or resolutions, I wanted to look at all the things I achieved in 2017. We often set unrealistic goals and become weighed down by them when we don’t reach them in the first couple of months. If you’re going to set goals for the year, try breaking them down into smaller…

    When Home is a Feeling, Not Just a Place

    Something I’ve come to realise more and more recently is that home is a feeling, not just a place. I could never pinpoint just one place that feels like home to me. It’s the people you’re around that make a place a home, it’s having a connection that’s familiar and comforting. When someone asks you where you’re from, where do…

    Disneyland Paris Adventures

    Disneyland Paris is something I’ve wanted to check off my bucket list for a long time. Last month, after waiting what seemed like forever, I finally had my Disneyland Paris adventure! The main reason, as you’ve probably read and seen, was to participate in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo challenge; running a 10km race and then a half marathon on consecutive…

    Reasons to Go Walking

    One thing I love is going on a long walk in the countryside. Growing up, we went on holidays in the Yorkshire Dales every year, which I probably didn’t appreciate enough at the time. Now, when I have a free weekend, I like to pack my car up, jump in and find a new route for the day. There are…

    Things I’m Excited for at Disneyland Paris

    There are so many things I’m excited for at Disneyland Paris. After looking forward to it for months, it’s now less than three weeks away! I’ve started planning outfits with my friend Jen and trying to sort what we’re doing each day along with smashing my running goals. I’ll be running the 10km kitted out head-to-toe as Tinkerbell and then doing…

    Top 3 Smoothies to Start the Day

    I am a complete sucker for having smoothies to start the day. During my work week, I do intermittent fasting which means I get all my calories in within an eight-hour period. I start eating at 11.30am which means my lunch break is only an hour later. I’ll usually start with a protein shake packed full of nutrients and I…

    Adventures in Edinburgh

    I’ve wanted to venture to Edinburgh for a while now. The only time I’ve been was when I was ten years old so it’s not something I remember very clearly. One of my nearest and dearest friends, Rhona, lives there so I got to stay with her after she managed to get the weekend off. It was also the first…

    Why I Don’t Blog Consistently

    I’ve been blogging for almost six years on and off. Why am I not hitting tens of thousands of viewers per month? I don’t blog consistently as it isn’t something I live and breath. I write because I enjoy it. There are plenty of others out there that blog for a living and that’s completely and utterly awesome. My blog…

    Creating a Beachbody and Running Hybrid Training Plan

    With my half marathon just weeks away, I haven’t been able to purely focus on another Beachbody program. To help my endurance and strength, I knew I needed to do something alongside my running plan.  I’ve created a Beachbody and running hybrid training plan. I wanted to try the new Shift Shop program and also switch back to Sean T’s…

    When Life Doesn’t Work Out How You Thought It Would

    So what happens when life doesn’t work out the way you thought it would? Embrace it. When I was at school, I had a ‘plan’. A plan for my work life and my love life. You never get taught about the different things that happen along the way, about the good and the bad. I am in a completely different…

    21 Day Fix Results

    As I mentioned here, I’ve gone back to doing the Beachbody programs. I did T-25 alongside running when I lived in Florida and was probably the fittest I’ve ever been. With the announcement of the coaching system coming to the UK in autumn, I’ve restarted. I have an amazing coach called Alexis who is so encouraging and positive. My aim…

    Why I’ve Given Up Calorie Counting

    If you’re following me on my fitness Instagram but you may have seen that I’ve been changing my diet recently. I’ve been posting a lot of what I’ve been eating and my fitness routines, along with my before and after photos. The biggest change for me is how I keep track of what I’m eating. In the last few years,…

    Getting Summer Skin Ready

    Well we’ve had a wonderful week or so of hot weather, I hope it stays around for a bit! If there’s one thing I miss about Florida (one thing you say?!), it’s my tan. I miss my sun-kissed skin and having my freckles year-round. I will be sitting in the garden as much as I can when it’s sunny but…
