My Emotional Relationship with my Weight and Food

I’ve realised recently that my weight, and my diet, is very much a reflection of the mood I’m in, how I’m feeling and how life is at that moment. There never seems to be a ‘happy medium’ for me, instead my weight – and diet – seem to fluctuate as the years and months go by.

Making Massage a Lifestyle Choice

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

On Tuesday I went for my monthly massage at The Massage Company in Camberley. I’ve been going there each month since it opened last year – you can read the review of my first visit here. Whilst I was having my massage I took some time to reflect, not just on the massages but on how, at the start of a brand new year, I am so glad I made massage a regular part of my lifestyle.

Pure Gym Camberley Review

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

Three months ago I had never been to a gym – aside from a couple of legs, bums and tums sessions just before I got married. I had never used machines in a gym – never even used a changing room in a gym – but earlier in the summer something clicked. I wanted to not just lose weight, or tone up, but I wanted to make a lifestyle change.

When Was The First Time You Thought You Were Fat?

Most people think they are overweight at some point in their life and have various physical hangups when it comes to their own bodies. I think this is completely natural and definitely something that plays on my mind at times. I’m currently following the SlimFast Challenge and have done various other diets in the past – especially after having LP.

*This is a collaborative guest post

With so much to squeeze into everyday life it can be easy to order junk food, skip the gym (particularly after a busy day at work), lounge in front of the TV on your days off and generally forget about your health and wellbeing. This, of course, can lead to obesity, diabetes, fatigue and a wealth of other problems, so here’s how to improve your family’s overall health in 2016.

A Diet Update

Just over a month ago I decided to be healthier. This was about not only dieting but exercising more and trying to drink more water – something I am still awful at. I did two weeks of Slim Fast and since then I haven’t updated my progress with healthiness – not because I have fallen off the wagon or anything but because I wanted to focus on dieting less, make it a part of my day to day lifestyle and something natural not something I obsessed over. Because of this it has been a couple of weeks since I last updated on my weight loss and how my healthy living is going in general but I think from now on I’ll be updating every few weeks or once a month as it will fit in with my life better.

Another Week of Healthy Living

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that I have now spent the last two weeks following the #SlimFastChallenge. I’ll be writing up about that in more detail in a few days but for now I’ll give a mini update. This week was a lot easier than the first week. I think my body had got used to the change in my diet and so I could deal with the types and amounts of food I could eat a lot better. I had less hungry times and enjoyed the Slim Fast plan a lot more this week – so much so that I am considering doing it going forward just on a looser basis.

My Fitness Goals

Review: Adidas Energy Boost 2 Running Shoes

Having started a bit of a health kick a couple of weeks ago, I was asked by Simply Health to talk about fitness – how I keep fit and my fitness goals. Anyone that knows me will know that fitness didn’t feature in my life for at least the first 29 years of my existence but then I started running and have never looked back.

My First Week of Diet and Exercise

Last Monday I started trying to be healthier – drinking more water, running again and eating better. The week saw me start the #SlimFastChallenge which I’m continuing this week and I really was so motivated to finally shift some of the weight I have been trying to lose for such a long time and also get into a good, long term exercise routine.
