‘Oh, my word! I’ve overeaten every night the past few days.’ – A Human ‘I’ve gained so much weight! I’ve been so stressed out lately and I needed those comforts.’ – A Human ‘Yeah, I’ve had a lot of takeaways recently. But I’m bored indoors and well, food tastes good.’ – A Human What theContinue reading “WTF: I Ate Too Much”
I had walked to Marks & Spencer early in the morning yesterday, the outbound journey was alright. I had left out early, as the local weather suggested that it will be the start of a heatwave across the UK. I was aware that I hadn’t eaten any breakfast, I was behind schedule and toldContinue reading “A Random Dish: Chickpeas, Spinach, Carrots, Onions, Sweetcorn, Pilau-rice, Sesame Seeds, Tomatoes and Curry”
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”
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”
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?”
I weigh what I weigh. What can I say? You ask the same questions. Yet, my weight is my weight, knowing my figures won’t change anything. Not for you anyway. I weigh what I weigh, what more can I say! Why do you ask? What difference will it make? None. Exactly.
Every morning and most nights, I tune into Chilled Cow via YouTube. This channel helps me to think and to relax. Relax and to rest. Life is always running until the end. In the grass, I stretch my body out. I roll, roll and stop! I am only one person. My life has peaks andContinue reading “Chilled Cow”
I Pledge To eat healthily. To workout. To smile more. To try foods, I’ve never tasted. To read more about plant-based living. To share my knowledge. To be true to myself.
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.”
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”
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always suffered from acne. More so during menstruation but generally throughout non-menstrual days. Big bumpy, unsightly spots! My daily breakfast (previously) consisted of a 40g bowl of porridge with a cup of milk! Throughout the day, I enjoyed drinking hot-chocolate, with a mountain of whipped cream…Mmm AcneContinue reading “Got Milk?”

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!’ “
