Generally every new year we all sit down and make a list of things we want to change right? They’re usually things like eat more healthily, hit the gym more, quit smoking, drink less … and apparently 66% of us break them within the first month. Personally I don’t bother making new year’s resolutions except for … More choices
If you’re just looking at getting into sport, I already know you’re thinking “WHAT?!?!” But seriously, triathlon has grown sooooo much in the last few years and it’s truly a sport for everyone.

When I was at lunch the other day – mmmm, the best roast ever, I’d highly recommend the Gun in the Docklands – my friend Harri mentioned that as part of some kind of team-building day at her work, she and her colleagues had to bring in something that had made them proud of themselves … More what are you most proud of?

I haven’t been able to do a proper shopping trip for ages because I’ve been so … More eating clean (part 1)

So … More my favourite websites
One thing that’s been on my mind for a while now is adrenal fatigue, aka adrenal dysfunction. I first heard about this when I was visiting New Zealand in early 2015 and I visited the fabulous Little Bird UnBakery with my friend Maddie.

Hiya! How’s you doing today? I’m sitting on my sofa finally after a massively long working week (including Saturday and Sunday aaaagh) – it’s been one crazy week with one thing and another! I am so grateful for my sofa right now (and my iPad, which is playing iPlayer in the background and my phone which … More working on being happy
