Gym Membership: Subscribe to a New Body

Years ago, I joined Virgin Active, after being mocked and teased about my body. I signed up to a membership that was priced around £45 pcm. I figured that if I attend at least three times a week £45/ 4 / 3 =£3.75 per session! And I compared that to a box of fried chickenContinue reading “Gym Membership: Subscribe to a New Body”

The Story of Unique Fatso

Unique Fatso *Disclaimer, this was written a while ago. Foundation I can’t remember how old I was exactly. But I know I was young. A small booklet arrived with the daily post and was placed in the fruit-bowl by one of my family members.

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”

Kale Juice & Floradix

I’m a big advocate of kale juice. I suffer with iron deficient anaemia. My GP has advised me to take iron tablets. My nails were brittle and kept breaking. And I also experienced hair loss. The issue with those, is that they give me side affects such as; headaches, loss of taste, chest pains. SoContinue reading “Kale Juice & Floradix”

Oat Milk

So I asked myself recently, what do I need milk for? And the only answer is porridge! I absolutely LOVE porridge. So last week I made a healthy choice and purchased a healthier option, #OatMilk which is a plant based milk alternative. I haven’t yet tried it. However, it’s the only milk now available toContinue reading “Oat Milk”

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”

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”
