Setting goals for Spring

I’m absolutely baffled that we’re in April already. Despite so much happening so far in 2018, this year seems to be whizzing by, but I’m determined to make the most of it before it’s over. The New Year’s resolutions are most likely left in February or perhaps they have simply become less of a priority […]

Getting through the January Blues

January can be quite a challenging month. You’re probably a little bit on the skint side after Christmas and the January sales, the weather is pretty awful and the dark mornings are still very much a thing, meaning hibernation mode is incredibly tempting albeit, not always healthy. I’ve mentioned having issues with January Blues on […]

Entering my first race

On my blog, I recently discussed how I’ve had a change in my running mindset which has encouraged me to run further and for longer during the last few months and for healthier reasons than the one that originally drove me. This positive step resulted in my entering of the Cardiff 10K on September 3, […]

My life with sport

I was recently approached by Sport Wales as they were looking for bloggers to contribute to their women and girls in sport campaign, Our Squad Cymru, to speak out about the importance of having women involved in sport. They explained that participation for women still continues to lack behind the statistics we see from our […]

A change in my running mindset

I have been falling in and out of love of my running habit this year like an absolute yo-yo. And for some time, I honestly could not figure out why. I tried downloading new apps, running in new locations and even starting more motivating running playlists. For a time, this helped drive my motivation but […]

Keeping up my fitness motivation

In January, I wrote about ‘the harsh realities of getting fit again’ when I first introduced exercise back into my daily routine. Since then, I’ve been working really hard to make sure that every week I’m either running, doing HIIT or going for a walk. But after a few month of exercise, it’s safe to […]

Reflexology at Lovely Soles

My first Reflexology session

If you’re wondering what Reflexology is, don’t worry, I wasn’t too sure what it was before my visit – I actually confused it with acupuncture. So let me explain. Reflexology is a complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the […]

Why I’m using soy protein

As a general rule, I love exercising and I’ve tried really hard to get it back into my routine in 2017. Post exercise, I’m an advocate of using protein powders in shakes to help refuel my body and to help my muscles repair. Usually, I would use whey protein but as they contains lactose and […]

Look after your mind with Headspace

You’ll find that when you open most magazines or articles that are talking about health or ‘looking after yourself’, they are usually talking about your physical wellbeing. So training your body, keeping yourself in shape whether that is for vanity reasons or for health reasons. But despite significant progress being made, there are still not […]

Diet plans: making money from our insecurities?

The weight loss industry is one that has continued to benefit since it was first established over 40 years ago. We’ve seen so many trends emerge over the last few years including the 5:2 diet, Herbalife, detox teas, the Body Coach and so many more, all with hundreds of thousands of followers. The global value […]
