Fat Fridays: How Long Does it Take to Lose Weight? – 04.03.2022

The Other evening, I conversed with a friend and confessed it took me years to lose weight. I’m losing weight in tiny increments; the bulk of my weight loss came last year, and even that was a struggle. For me, weight loss starts in my mind! Because when I feel bad, I eat badly.

The Pressure to Complete and Reach the End  – 27.02.2022 I’ve been dithering for a few weeks now. I avoided completing a piece of work that was overdue by months.

Mindfulness: Thank You – 08.02.2022

Thank You Two words that many of us forget to use, especially when circumstances permit. It’s like you think it and fail to say it.

Fat Fridays: What Fatso Heard? – 24.12.2021

What Fatso Heard? I’m not a ‘fan’ or a ‘traditional follower’ of Christmas! However, it is important to help those who are less fortunate than yourself. This help does not have to be financial; handing them cash into their hands. It could be signposting them to professional/charitable organisations or vice Versa.
