Couch To 5K – The First Week

I know lots of people have been embarking on Couch to 5k since the beginning of the year. I downloaded the app myself, adamant I would stick to my new year’s resolution to work on my fitness but then I never got round to starting it, always finding an excuse and prioritising something else. Just over a week ago, I decided something had to change. My eating habits were really...

Food & Fitness Friday – The 10 Minute Workout DVD that I Swear By

I’ve been really trying to make more of an effort with my fitness over the past couple of weeks, having fallen into very bad habits since Christmas. Although I don’t feel like I need or want to lose a huge amount of weight, I would like to tone up, feel healthier and more confident, especially for our honeymoon in a few weeks time. I’ve been using some of my old...

Experiencing The Real Greek with Bournemouth Bloggers

Having got married recently in Santorini, you might be under the impression that Ed and I are big fans of Greek food. In actual fact, our time on the island getting married was the first, and only time, I’ve sampled any Greek cuisine. I’m what you would probably refer to as a bit of a fussy eater generally. I’m not as bad as my Mum, who really doesn’t like dishes...

5 Things I’m Doing to be More Healthy

With just six weeks to go until we fly out to Mexico for our honeymoon, I have been making a conscious effort to try and be more healthy, having lapsed over the past couple of months. I don’t want to lose a lot of weight, but it would be nice to get a bit more in shape and to feel confident whilst spending the majority of our week away in...

Foodie Friday – A Carnival Christmas at Las Iguanas

So last night Ed and I were invited down to our local Las Iguanas in Bournemouth to sample their festive menu, and I was so excited – South American food & Christmas are two of my favourite things! This year Las Iguanas is open throughout the entire festive season, including Christmas Day itself, meaning if you fancy something a little different from turkey this year, you can head on over...

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 – My Favourite Autumn Meals 

I can’t be the only one who was totally excited last week, when autumn officially started?  Although my depression has always tended to be worse during the colder months (blame those grey, dull skies), there’s such a sense of excitement when the leaves start to fall. There’s so much going on over the next few months for our family, and I’m feeling very positive.  One of the things I love...

What We Ate at Our Greek Wedding 

It’s only been a couple of weeks, but it feels like an age ago that we got married. I meant to post this last Friday but life and the post wedding blues got in the way.  When it came to food for our wedding, we needed to keep it fairly simple as we had some fussier eaters in attendance, including my mum who generally sticks to British food (think pub...

Food & Fitness Friday – Back to School Lunchbox Ideas 

The summer is drawing to a close and it will soon be time for school to start once again. Fortunately for us, both of the children will be having free school meals, but if you plan on providing a lunchbox for your little one, I’ve come up with a list of items for inspiration to keep things mixed up throughout the week!  It’s worth noting that some schools have stricter...
