Do you have a healthy relationship with food?

source I’ve done a fair amount of body bashin’ and I’ve not been on this planet for very long. Since being about 9 I thought that it was normal to have things about your body that you complain about. Things you feel uncomfortable with. Things you maybe even hate. Even if you’ve been brought up…

Facing Reality

Collage made from images found here I think about my body way too much. To be frank with you, it is hard to stop a thought about my body flitting through my head every time I eat, every time I put clothes on (or take them off), every time I walk out onto the street,…

Staying Healthy in Winter

Perhaps this post is a little ironic as I’ve literally been ill a million times and we aren’t even into the real cold weather. Anyway, I have some tips for staying healthy and battling the illness, which inevitably tries to attack me when the weather turns colder. Drink lots of juice/water. Not only will it…

Mrs Motivator

Source It is completely normal to be unmotivated. After finishing my exams (yesterday – yey!) I’ve been finding it hard to get motivated back into exercising. I took a little break whilst revising as I was shattered all the time (if you were wondering!). I figured a few of you might be in the same…

Let’s Talk Flax Seed

Source I’ve been reading a lot on supplements recently. It is one part of my diet that I don’t pay very much attention to – not because I don’t think it is important, but because there are just so many different supplements. All of them are supposed to have huge benefits but I just don’t…

“I can’t wear that”

                 Skinny jeans. Body con dresses and skirts. Shorts. Jeans. Cropped tops. Bikinis.  We all have those clothing items that we steer away from. We might not even realise that we are doing it, it might just be a subconscious voice inside our head that prevents us from even considering…

The World of the Pool

Source: Weheartit You probably know that my chosen exercise is swimming, I talked about it here. It usually is a pleasant experience, but recently I’ve come to find myself annoyed at little niggles. I’m going to tell you about a few people that to put it bluntly… really get on my tits! The one that likes competition….

‘Real’ Women

Source The other day I was reading the morning news articles on my phone apps, like I do every morning, when I came across this article: Surge in sales of ‘Adele’ sized mannequins. I was furious. Just to give you a little quote: ‘One of the UK’s largest shop mannequin companies has reported a surge in orders for clothes dummies…

The Crave Monster

Source I am a crave monster. I’ve noticed a pattern in the way I snack that has lead me to assume said problem is a habit. Losing this habit takes some getting used to, but I’m slowly making progress (someone said habits take five weeks to get out of so we’ll see). The evil cravings usually come…

De-Stress

Source: http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/10/stressed-is-desserts-spelled-backwards.html Whilst looking for potential reasons for my plateau when I came across numerous websites stating why I wasn’t losing any more weight. I kind of take these sites with a pinch of salt as they always seem to be ‘scientific’ based rather than experience based… I always wonder to what extend the information they give you is actually scientifically proven….
