Healthy eating can be expensive. I know many times I’ve struggled to eat healthy whilst having a food budget to stick to.

Embracing Femininity, women in lingerie & jeans on a tree in nature

Embracing Femininity & Body ConfidenceΒ 

Ever since being a teenager I’ve struggled to love my body. I’ve struggled to embrace my femininity and have body confidence. My boobs are small. My hips are two dress sizes larger than my top half. I have cellulite, stretch marks and ‘beauty’ spots. I’ve never got back to my pre-baby weight and that ‘baby’ turns 3 a week today. I’ve felt ashamed and embarrassed … Continue reading Embracing Femininity & Body ConfidenceΒ

Getting Fit With Flex

I’ve been trying to get back to being fit for what feels like forever. I’m on/off my fitness journey like no one’s business.

Whilst some can be justified and have merit, most of the time it’s just bad … Continue reading Getting Fit With Flex

When Vanity Strikes

Today I weighed myself, I don’t do it often. I don’t think it’s the most beneficial way to get to health and fitness goals, but nonetheless it can provide some indication. I kid you not, I wanted to cry. Before anyone tells me I don’t have the right to be upset, because I’m slim then your wrong. I maybe slim, but that doesn’t mean I’m … Continue reading When Vanity Strikes

Running & Mantra’s

This year I’ve started back running again after 6 months. I have to say I’m loving it. It’s hard going, I’m out of breath easily, but it’s me time. As I run I say a positive mantra and it’s like a form of meditation. Sometimes all I think about is “wow this is so hard” as I pant and struggle on, but every now and … Continue reading Running & Mantra’s

January Goals & 2017 Theme

One of my favourite YouTubers for self-help/personal development stuff is Aileen from Lavendaire. She recently posted a video all about her theme for 2017. Having a theme for the year isn’t something I’ve ever done or really thought about, but I found the video really inspiring and thought it was a brilliant idea. So my theme for 2017 is to feel connected. I already had … Continue reading January Goals & 2017 Theme

FitMAS Friday: Wedding Dress Motivation

One of my very 1st posts was about how we are planning toΒ renew our vows next year for our 10 year wedding anniversary. It’s now just under a year away so I thought I best get my wedding dress from my Mum in-laws attic to see if it still fits. It has been 9 years after all. The good news is, it does indeed fit. … Continue reading FitMAS Friday: Wedding Dress Motivation

FitMAS Friday: A Blast From The Pass

This week a time-hop came up on my Facebook of a photo I’d made 3 years ago to promote the fitness classes I used to run. It basically said ‘Exercise in December and feel happier in January’. Seeing it on my timeline was really bitter sweet. It reminded me of good times and feeling really fit, but it also made me realise how lazy I … Continue reading FitMAS Friday: A Blast From The Pass
