My Workout Essentials

Nothing makes me feel better than a great workout, whether it’s outdoors or in my corner of the bedroom that I call my gym. Exercise lifts my mood and gives me the energy and motivation I need to get on with the rest of my day. I can workout anywhere, but there are a few…

Raw chocolate bites

  It’s not a secret that I love chocolate, I love it so much I eat it every single day. But you can have too much of a good thing so I wanted to find a healthier way to get my chocolate fix, something I could just grab when I’m too tired to do anything…

BBG frequently asked questions

I’ve been doing the Bikini Body Guide (BBG) by Kayla Itsines for around 18 months now and since then it’s grown in popularity, bringing more girls into the community and leading to BBG meet ups all over the world. It’s now an app called Sweat With Kayla (SWK) and there’s also a new 28 day healthy…

Making exercise a habit

I always get asked what motivates me to keep exercising and the truth is I get days where I’d rather be laying in bed eating a family sized pack of crisps just like everyone else. Motivation will only take me so far, what keeps me working out every day is routine. When I first started…

Simple Chia pudding 

Usually I love a bowl of oats in the morning, whether it’s a warming bowl of porridge in the Winter or overnight oats in the Summer I start the day with a humongous bowl of carbs. I’m a carbs sort of girl – oats, bread, pasta, more bread – you get the picture, all my…

What I eat in a week

I haven’t made a food diary in a long time: I don’t count calories, I usually eat the same meals every week and I’m not putting on weight so I haven’t felt the need to. I used to count macros but after months of inputting the same sorts of food I pretty much know what…

How to stay motivated

It’s easy to be motivated when you’re just starting a new workout or just committed to something new, but after all that excitement fades and the reality of the hard work ahead kicks in, it can be hard to get the same sort of motivation that you started out with. I’ve been working out at…

My tips to stop snacking

Some lucky people can eat whatever they want and as long as they exercise they won’t put on weight. I am definitely NOT one of the lucky ones! A few weeks ago I relaxed the hold I had on my diet and subconsciously I decided to eat whatever I wanted again. I was getting fed up…

My Birthday and fitness haul!

I celebrated my birthday a few weeks back and Richard and I went to a spa hotel for a much needed night away from the kids. My plan was to eat and drink as much as I could and I think I definitely succeeded! After eating healthily and exercising for months on end having the…

Overnight oats 

Comfort food is something I’ve been craving this week. The weather’s taken a turn for the worst and work has been stressful, so it’s been tough not to fall head first into a chocolate cake as soon as I walk through the door. As well as chocolate and cake there’s also something about oats that’s…

Victoria Secret Sports

Hey guys! So last week I went shopping for the first time in the new Victoria Secret store in the city.  I’d already seen lots of things I loved online but I was a little hesitant to buy anything as I was unsure of the sizes but now was my perfect chance! First of all…

BBG Meet up Wales

Yesterday a group of us girls met up for our third BBG workout in the park together. Last time we met up we ended up soggy from the rain but the sun was shining and it was the perfect day. We did eight exercises in a circuit for 45 seconds at a time, four circuits all together….

Ditching soda for good

I’ve never really classed myself as a soda drinker. Some of my friends have a serious cola addiction and they go through cans of the stuff every day, but me? Well I only drink lemonade now and again and as it’s diet I’m not drinking any excess calories, so I’m much healthier than my friends…
