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”

Yoga FLAME/SHAME(?) nah.

Yesterday, I attended my first yoga-class. (First in about 10 years.) the teacher said we were not allowed to drink any water during. I wasn’t happy about that and considered walking out. But I stayed and breathed on. Before starting, I asked the yoga teacher if it is aimed at ‘beginners?’ He said, ‘anyone canContinue reading “Yoga FLAME/SHAME(?) nah.”

Try

Do you ever wish you had tried something earlier? Often I fear change and avoid it where possible. However, I recently came across red/lentil penne pasta, during a recent visit to @MarksAndSpencer yesterday, I made some and it was delicious. During my meal, I thought about all those opportunities I’ve passed up: events I’ve missed,Continue reading “Try”

Tea Time with Pukka

Late last night, I made a mug of Pukka Tea, #PukkaCleanse to be exact. After consuming a large portion of battered chips 😔I felt a combination of sadness, disappointment and the need to fix it. The taste (for me) was awful. But I downed it, I finished to whole cup. It’s goodness that will noContinue reading “Tea Time with Pukka”

The Hold Up – Sports Bras

It has taken me months to locate a ‘high support,’ sportsbra. I’ve tried on so many from Adidas and Nike (hard to purchase my size) I must say the Adidas sports bras look amazing on the mannequins. They’re impossible to get on, some appear to have been designed by a man…no offence. Finally, I triedContinue reading “The Hold Up – Sports Bras”

Fat is Fat, let’s be factual.

I purchased a box of frozen Angus beef burgers, recently. I fried them one day and grilled the rest! The grilled version left behind all that from 1 burger. Here I saw my veins, my air-intake, my heartbeat, my life. All greased up and fattened up for my crave, for processed greasy foods. It willContinue reading “Fat is Fat, let’s be factual.”

Stretchmarks 😒 Love

Over the years I’ve noticed stretchmarks appearing all over my body. And last year, they started on my stomach.  Before I used to fear getting intimate with a partner, through fear that they’ll find my stretchmarks unattractive. Caused me to end relationships, even before they got going. Through fear, I hid my body behind layersContinue reading “Stretchmarks 😒 Love”

Breakfast Time and obvious signs. ‘Hurry, hurry!’ 

I remember many years ago, breakfast had to be; scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, 4 slices of toast and a big sploge of ketchup.  One day I was happily devouring this ‘frequent’ meal down, when I experienced chest pains…sharp pains that forced me to stop eating and sit still for a moment in time. IContinue reading “Breakfast Time and obvious signs. ‘Hurry, hurry!’ “

Periods & Cravings

Another weakness of mine, is during my period; I crave alsorts! Last month it was potatoes, today its sponge cake and custard. Terrible I know – ‘I’m greedy!’ I’ve just eaten half sponge cake (with custard) and I know it’s not helpful to my health. Do you ever struggle with cravings? Are you weak? IContinue reading “Periods & Cravings”
