Happy Halloween! I thought I’d celebrate with a post about my new favourite treat with no trick involved, Doisy and Dam Superfood Chocolate. To paraphrase Simon Cowell, I don’t like chocolate… I love it. Chocolate has been my favourite food, and possibly thing, since teething. People who say they can take it or leave it,… Read More Trick or Treat? Doisy and Dam Superfood Chocolate
Most active people know that there is no better feeling than finishing a workout covered in sweat and knowing you’ve really put some effort in, which is why so many people get hooked on a healthy lifestyle. However, sometimes it’s not finding motivation to get to the gym, but the anxiety caused when you can’t… Read More The New Niggle: How to Get Rid of Missed Exercise Guilt
These are a guilt free variation of one of my favourite muffins of all time, the banana muffin. I was definitely one of those children who felt sick at the smell of a banana, and whilst I still don’t love them on their own I have come to adore them in smoothies, bakes and puddings. … Read More Rise and Shine with Breakfast Muffins
This week my hip injury has still been giving me trouble, so I’ve avoided high impact exercises like jumping and running in favour of strength work, spinning, and maybe a little bit of circuit training towards the end of the week. It’s also rare I attend any fitness event in clothes that aren’t lycra based,… Read More A Week in My Trainers
Eating a light salad and lean protein source is all very well and good in the summer, but sometimes you want something that is nutritious but a bit more warming. Not to mention something that will defeat the look of scepticism and fear that passes over a friend’s face when ‘the healthy one’ invites them… Read More Making Mincemeat of Healthy Eating
Anyone who follows me on instagram will by now have realised that when it comes to exercise I’m a morning person. This is because my job requires me to work long hours, I feel more motivated to be active in the morning as opposed to after work, and I personally feel less tired and prone… Read More Get out of Bed, Sleepy Head!
This has been the most atypical week of training for me ever. I’m normally somewhat routine in the fact that I run, I do circuits at the gym and then I run some more. However, this week routine went totally out of the window due to injury, a very exciting invitation, and a little bit… Read More A Week in My Trainers
I first posted this recipe about a year ago as a healthy solution to Christmas leftovers that doesn’t mean ten rounds of Turkey and bread sauce sandwiches, but I was inspired to update it when I received my Muscle Food box of goodies. To recap, Muscle Food is an online company selling a high quality… Read More Cooking up a Healthy Curry
I was recently invited to be put through my paces by the team at YourZone in Colliers Wood, Wimbledon, so on Saturday morning I travelled down the Northern line to try out their heart-rate based training for size. I often do high intensity interval training as a way of saving time and breaking a sweat,… Read More In the Zone at YourZone
Last week thousands of magazines were dropped through letterboxes either saying ‘You’re In’ or ‘Sorry’ as ballot places for the London Marathon 2016 were allocated. I received my entry magazine through my Good for Age place, but I’m very lucky as anyone who has ever entered the ballot will agree that getting a place seems… Read More The New Niggle: Should I apply for a charity place in the London Marathon?
