Why I’m not dieting this January (even though I’m a size 16)

A few years ago I would've planned a fresh new blog post ready to go live featuring my favourite fat-loss tips for January, or how to 'get back on track' after Christmas. Now, I can't be f*@ked with all that.  I still love eating healthily because it gives me the energy to do the things … Continue reading Why I’m not dieting this January (even though I’m a size 16)

10 things only a diet addict will understand 

I'm done with dieting. I've been on a diet for the last ten years and I'm so exhausted from it all. I got thin. Now I'm a bit chubby. Life goes on.

Easy healthy food hacks for when you can’t be bothered cooking

Since relocating my entire life to Birmingham my healthy eating game has been below average. I've indulged in several celebratory meals, family takeaways, and midnight stress eating sessions - involving a jar of peanut butter- and to be honest it's been fantastic. For the past few weeks though, I've been trying to get more micronutrients … Continue reading Easy healthy food hacks for when you can’t be bothered cooking

I’m not thin and that’s OK…. I think

  I've used this blog as a way to document my health & fitness journey. I've focussed a lot on losing weight because this has always been my primary concern, and I just assumed that everyone else was worried about that too. I know there are some people who just don't gain or lose weight, … Continue reading I’m not thin and that’s OK…. I think

Eating more protein

Since getting to my goal weight in November through a low-calorie diet (spoiler alert: that lifestyle is not sustainable!) I've been feeling a bit low on energy. I started of course by binge eating chocolate and pizza but realised I felt worse,  shocker! So after reacquainting myself with the basics of good nutrition I began … Continue reading Eating more protein
