During Menstruation

Sometimes it is easy to forget that we need to take extra care of ourselves during our period. This month I have craved salty foods and bought salty foods to feed my salty desires. However, it was wrong of me to react that way to something I’m expecting and know how to manage when itContinue reading “During Menstruation”

Reflections: C25K – Week 6

Reflections: C25K – Week 6 Last week was a challenging week, my laptop broke down, and I hadn’t backed up everything. I cried, cried and cried some more. But crying doesn’t solve an issue. Instead, it seeks to prolong it. I sought help and was ignored by people who are there to help. I turnedContinue reading “Reflections: C25K – Week 6”

Fat Fridays: No, I Will NOT!

I’m tired of being the one to step up and mend the cracks. They formed because you keep on leaning on my mind. Taking pieces, slice by slice, like a greedy person. Like anyone else, I need time to myself too. I have days where I do nothing, and that is great for my mindContinue reading “Fat Fridays: No, I Will NOT!”

Fat Fridays: Off the Mark 28.05.2021

This week has been challenging, though it started well. History came zapping through my phone and pinging on WhatsApp with a ‘Hey, Unique…’ the innocence of the opening-line opened up that tiny door in my heart. Then blasted through with a missile, forcing my eyes to focus on reality. In short? There is no short.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: Off the Mark 28.05.2021”

Fat Fridays: How to Relax Effectively? 23.04.2021

How to Relax Effectively? Before I used to lay awake until well after 0200 in the morning. No matter what I did, I was unable to relax effectively. Some days I would struggle to keep up with my to-do list and continue the cycle the following night. I was like I was the only personContinue reading “Fat Fridays: How to Relax Effectively? 23.04.2021”

Earth Day 22.04.2021

Frequently we view images, watch videos and hear discussions about how badly we have damaged our home – Earth. Many of us have viewed Planet Earth by David Attenborough and seen how we contribute to the destruction of natural habitats for wildlife and even locals who reside in villages nearby. Our need to consume isContinue reading “Earth Day 22.04.2021”

Fat Fridays: How Far Can You Run? It’s Not a Competition. Before This blog is my safe space. I had never run before, not properly anyway. I had tried on several occasions but stopped due to many factors: Negative family members. Low confidence, to be honest, I had no confidence.

Fat Fridays: Is Sugar Sweet or Toxic? 09.04.2021

Before: I remember adding 3 large spoonful’s of sugar to any hot drink I had made. Stirring it and smiling in greedy delight to accept the sweetness I was about to deliver to myself. Sugar was my thing! Sugar ringed doughnuts, sugary sweeties, sugar sprinkled over pancakes and the more sugar the happier I feltContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Is Sugar Sweet or Toxic? 09.04.2021”

Fat Fridays: Fear of Change? 02.04.2021

Before I hid my body away beneath layers of black clothing, oversized black clothing to be detailed. As I avoided looking in mirrors, I never really knew how stupid I looked. I mean, being a fatty and trying to hide in black is nonsensical. I was there walking around looking like a black hole. IContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Fear of Change? 02.04.2021”

Fat Fridays: Safety While Running – 26.03.2021

Fat Fridays: Safety While Running – 26.03.2021 A few weeks ago I went for a power-walk/jog around 1000 in the morning. The roads were quiet and the sky was bright! I started with a nice brisk walk, earphones in but playing tunes at a good volume so I could still hear the space around me.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: Safety While Running – 26.03.2021”

Fat Fridays: Portion Control – 12.03.2021

Portion Control As many of you already know I’ve been looking into portion control, as I’ve identified that while the main bulk of my diet is filled with healthy plant-based meals. I overeat my favourite meals, such as peppered jackfruit and chickpea curry. With pasta, I had never measured my portions before. As I livedContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Portion Control – 12.03.2021”

Fat Fridays: Going the Distance – 26.02.2021

Despite what some people may say to your face, you may encounter that not everyone wants you to succeed in losing weight. They will smile in your face and then mumble shit behind your back. Like, ‘she can’t lose weight! She’s been fat forever.’ Then they will wish you luck and treat you to aContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Going the Distance – 26.02.2021”
