Ella’s Kitchen The Easy Family Cookbook Challenge

My girls are becoming increasingly interested in cooking. I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …

My Relationship With Food

Growing up I don’t think food was really my friend. I’d turn my nose up at anything remotely odd looking or smelling without even actually tasting it. I wouldn’t dare to touch a pepperoni pizza or a Chinese, let alone Curry or even fruit. I was always the reason we chose certain restaurants or had certain things for dinner and …

Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe

I don’t own a full length mirror. I’m not tall enough to see into our bathroom one and so I put up with a hand held one for my makeup in a poorly lit hall way. That’s how I dress myself each morning, relying on a quick glimpse in a shop window to double check I actually look half decent …

I am now 3 weeks into my weight loss journey. My main goal wasn’t really to eat healthier but to eat less. Like the saying goes “everything in moderation”. I planned to cut my portions by half and stick to eating 1,000 calories a day. A big thing for me to cut was the biscuits. During the first week I …

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 12

I started my weight loss journey 12 weeks ago nearly 13 this Thursday. I haven’t updated for a month and that’s mainly because the Juice Plus Journey, healthy eating and exercise has sort of gone to pot.

Body Confidence of a Mum of 3

I was interviewed today for a magazine. The main aim was to talk about what it’s like to be a young mum. I felt very nervous and anxious before the phone call and it was even worse whilst talking as I unearthed the past again. But during that call I was asked questions about what it’s like to be a …

“I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago”

Somebody told me today that I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago after posting this photo on my Instagram this morning.  Little did that person know that I’m hiding a badger stripe at my roots, bags under my eyes and a pretty fed up mood. It was a comment that certainly picked me up …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 2

I’ve been really worrying about the weigh in this week. I’ve now been on Juice Plus for two weeks. I’ve also been exercising religiously using the app that I spoke about last week.
