Hit the pause button

The weirdest part about having children is the pull. You are so torn between wanting your children to be little forever and desperately wanting to fast-forward to see the adult they will become. Pleading to get through a horrible phase as quickly and unscathed as possible, yet desperately sad as your baby disappears before your […]

Anaesthetic high

It’s weird, when you are a child you are given constant reassurance, praise and multiple pats on the back for doing things well, or quite honestly, even averagely at times.

How many times have you clocked a beautiful girl, probably “bigger” than you and just thought wow, she looks amazing. I would bet a lot of money that her body confidence and heightened sense of self worth has made her look that bit more attractive than you feel you are. I am such a slave […]

I’m baaack

So I’ve not blogged in what feels like years. The thirtieth birthday has been in full swing for the last few weeks and the weight loss has taken a back seat. I never fully recovered from Easter so I find myself currently 5 lb heavier than pre Easter and Birthday. Lines have been drawn and […]

Boxing 🥊🥊🥊

So the weekend didn’t really pan out as planned, an emergency dog rehome stalled the plans for a weekend away 🤦‍♂️. I did however still make it down to London for the Mahara sports event. I felt completely out of my comfort zone in all honesty and worried the whole train journey there that it […]

Fitness buddy

Who doesn’t love a good gym session with a friend. Today was the first time in years that I met a friend at the gym and she took me through an amazing circuit of weights and exercises. The time just flew by and I’m sure I worked a lot harder than I normally would so […]
