Food & Fitness Friday – My October Fitness Plans 

I have been so awful with regards to my health and fitness since getting back from Santorini at the beginning of last month. I have been scoffing so much junk food, and being generally greedy with my food as I’ve been feeling quite anxious and under the weather.  I have also been suffering with bad cramps in my stomach and most of the time all I want to do is...

Food & Fitness Friday – Toning Up with Charlotte Crosby

I wrote last week about how I’ve lost my baby weight since having Benjamin. Now down to my goal weight of 9 stone, I am happy with my size but I don’t feel confident with my loose skin.  Over the past few weeks I’ve started to tone up in preparation for our wedding on 2nd September. I’ve been using the Charlotte Crosby 3 Minute Abs DVD to do this (and...

Food & Fitness Friday – Getting Back into the Swing of Things with Muay Thai Boxing 

When I first met Ed he was teaching Muay Thai kickboxing alongside his day job in the hotel we both worked. When the new beginners course started up in the new year I roped my sister into going with me, and we both loved how fit it got us in a reasonably short amount of time. I wrote about my experiences at the time.  Lately I’ve been feeling a bit...

Food & Fitness Friday – No Ifs or Butts 

Apart from my tummy, my bum is one of the parts of my body I’m least confident about after the kids.  I used to have a pretty good, small but pert bum, but lately I’ve noticed that my bum is not only bigger than it used to be, it’s also a bit shapeless.  I would love to have my bum back to its former glory in time for our wedding,...

Food & Fitness Friday – My Fitness Plans for 2017 

Getting tired of resolution style posts this week yet? I promise this is the last. I wanted to kick off my revamped Friday series (which now includes fitness as well as food), with a rundown of my health and fitness goals for 2017.  I actually originally wrote this post and scheduled it before the Christmas break but I’ve had to come back to it and adapt it after reading a...

Foodie Friday – Healthy Eating – Getting Back on Track 

So, just over a week has gone by since baby Benjamin was born and although I’m by no means looking to be back in my size 8 skinny jeans any time soon, I do feel like kicking my generally awful post baby diet.  I got into very bad habits during the last few months of my pregnancy. I would comfort eat the worst junk food because all I wanted was...

Wedding Wednesday – Shredding for the Wedding 

Right, hold your horses. I’m clearly not doing this just yet. At almost 6 months pregnant I am just about doing the opposite of what I’m about to write about. I’m eating plenty (sadly some of the stuff I’m eating plenty of isn’t that good for me but pregnancy is the one time I fully allow myself what I want so meh).  This is a guide for those other brides...

Muay Thai Beginner Course Review 

Last year I tried out something a little different. I took a beginners course in Muay Thai with my sister. I was expecting to find it difficult but in fact, it was really fun and although challenging in places, we found this was good to keep us on our toes and it also really helped to keep us both in shape. Although it doesn’t look like it, boxing requires effort...
