Focus: It’s Okay

I’ve been feeling blue along with my fellow peers on this earth. So much has happened and all seems to be hitting us at once! Well known people dying this year, COVID-19 making the whole world stop and those common feelings of self-doubt and restlessness. Then the spotlight on the murders in police uniforms –Continue reading “Focus: It’s Okay”

Stairs & Stomping

During my daily walks, I encounter hills and while I enjoy walking down them, walking up frustrates me. Because at that point I’m tired. However, as my body needs this I will walk up the hill, but I walk up stomping. Not like in an angry way, but in a way where my strides areContinue reading “Stairs & Stomping”

Food Glorious Food

For years and I mean years, I found solace in food. Whenever I was sad, happy, bored or relaxed I found eating food made me feel? Different each time. Preparing the food, I salivated – I knew I was making something I ‘really’ wanted to eat.      Rather than having 2 bacon rashers, I wouldContinue reading “Food Glorious Food”

The Daily Walk

I’ve not been running/jogging much lately, though I’ve been walking each day – not really on Sundays. I’ve increased my walking from 20 minutes to 45 minutes, minimum per walk. It’s been an experience getting the know a bit better the city I live in. From the roads that are covered in dust, to streetsContinue reading “The Daily Walk”

The Corset

Many years ago, back in the days where I had family members calling me Fatso! I had read an article in a magazine, it spoke about a woman with a tiny waist – She credited her svelte figure to her consistent use of corsets. ‘Corsets!’ I shouted out within the company of a bowl ofContinue reading “The Corset”

Wednesday Wisdom

The statement above resonates with me on so many levels, as I find when I don’t feel like something is going to be a challenge, I slack off. There have been a few days during Rona’s Rampage, where I don’t feel like I’ve done enough – I get back home and think? Hmm, I should’veContinue reading “Wednesday Wisdom”

To Dance or Not to Dance? That is the Question!

As a teenager, I went clubbing every now and again, but I never became someone who wanted to visit nightclubs often. When I was around 18 I felt amazing in my short, black mini dress. I’ve always been curvy but that night I felt beautiful. I used to dance the night away and dancing inContinue reading “To Dance or Not to Dance? That is the Question!”

Food: Why I Buy Chickpeas, Lentils and Mushrooms?

It’s no secret that nearly all my meals contain one, two or all the above! I enjoy meals I create with them and I’m always surprised at the results – the dishes I’ve created taste amazing. I began to incorporate mushrooms more into my diet a few years ago, after being told by my GPContinue reading “Food: Why I Buy Chickpeas, Lentils and Mushrooms?”

Fitness: Why I Chose Running?

I was asked recently, ‘What made you choose running?’ and after thinking about it, I responded by explaining that running chose me. I had signed up to a fancy gym that had all the amazing first-class facilities to use. All classes included in the membership and 30 minutes worth of personal training, at no additionalContinue reading “Fitness: Why I Chose Running?”

Sugar

“Sugar, Ah! Honey, honey. You are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you!” – The Archies I visited Marks & Spencers last night to purchase fruits and veg (mainly veg), and once again, I picked up a bag of four, sugar-ringed doughnuts and placed them into my basket FIRST! After gathering what IContinue reading “Sugar”

Lockdown: Snacks & Naps

Here in the UK, the policy on Social Distancing has been extended for a further three weeks. This came as no surprise to me: No cure found, many people are still contracting Rona (COVID19.) I’ve developed a few strange things; I now snack a lot! And nap a lot! Since the UK began social-distancing, IContinue reading “Lockdown: Snacks & Naps”

Where to Start?

This is one of the main questions I ask repeatedly asked myself at the beginning of my weight loss journey. Where do I start? I turned to sections in magazines, and I would tear out pages from them; Slim Down for Summer! Lose 10lbs in 7 days. Diet this and diet that, live like thisContinue reading “Where to Start?”

Curves

Curves I’m curvy, and I know it. I can’t hide away; my body shows it. I own these curves, and don’t I know it! My intrigue is captured by the way some people cherish some curves and mock others. Definition of a curve: ‘a line or outline which gradually deviates from being straight for someContinue reading “Curves”

The Rotten Side of Life

The Rotten Side of Life I was once a meat-eater, so I do understand, the thought process behind eating meat. It’s how many of us were raised. I know many of you have seen PETA videos or some blog post about the cruelty to animals. So that’s not what I’m about to share with youContinue reading “The Rotten Side of Life”
