My Newest Hobby – The Gym

A couple of years ago I started going to the gym – and I loved it. I lost weight, got fitter and was in a really nice routine. But, when I gave up my day job to blog full time my work/life balance shifted massively and I was so focused on making sure I put enough hours into blogging that the gym slipped off my radar hugely. But now, 18…

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.

When I left home there were times when I couldn’t afford to eat regularly…

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.…

A Month of Running #SpringForward | AD

At the start of April I was challenged by Institute of Inertia, in partnership with Comparethemarket.com, to set myself a spring goal, resurrecting a resolution that failed at the start of the year and using the brighter, longer days to give myself a chance at success. I decided to focus on doing something for me and set myself the goal of running three times a week throughout April. Running is…

TomTom Spark Cardio + Music GPS Fitness Watch Review

Over the last eighteen months I have been running fairly regularly and have been trying to improve my overall fitness and activity levels too. Regular readers will have seen me review different activity monitors and I have used other ones I haven’t blogged about too but nothing ever seemed to tick every box. I was looking for something that I could push a pushchair with that would still log my…
