Last week I didn’t post a video up on to our You Tube channel, I have been having internet problems on and off for weeks! I had thought I would post a video about the use of animal testing in household and beauty products, primarily because of quite a deep and meaningful conversation I had… Continue reading A World Too Bad.
When I was a little girl I didn’t know we, my family, were poor, I never applied that label to any of us. Indeed it was only through the passage of time and being exposed to what other girl’s family had – in terms of comforts and material possessions – that I realised slowly how… Continue reading The Advent Calendar
I’m a tad stressed. I suppose the good news is I am aware of it, I am aware it is affecting me negatively, I know where the stress is coming from and I am trying to do something about it. That’s all positive stuff. Of course there is such a beast as positive stress, but… Continue reading Stress – and burn out

If I were to be writng a review of this year and looked at what was my big feature of 2016 – it would without doubt be that I conquered my fear of running and learned to like and stick at it.

Get me in the photo there!! Yes, I am wearing shorts. Dear God this fact alone is worthy of the 9 o clock news. Who could have possibly thunked it. Barely 17 weeks ago I was swaddled up like I was Mother Mary Bernadette Therese, terrified that anyone might see me wheeze my way around… Continue reading Walk/Run – when to stop the walk?

If you watch my short video below, you’ll see where I’m coming from. ‘Mid-life’ or simply feeling the pull of ‘something more’ wanted in my life. I think it’s always been lurking there, frankly… Continue reading Bucket List or F— It List?!
Since starting an exercise schedule at Christmas 2015 and cleaning up my diet i’ve lost 6 inches on my waist; 2 inches off my thighs, knees and calves and nearly 2 inches off my backside. Disregarding what that means in lbs overall, this inch loss has done amazing things for my body confidence and largely… Continue reading winning the inch war
