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...

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 – How I’ve Lost my Baby Weight Alongside Breastfeeding 

This week has been national breastfeeding week so I thought it only fitting to incorporate feeding Benjamin into the post. Eight months into breastfeeding and we are still going strong. I’m really proud of both of us to have made it this far, and I have high hopes we will make it to my goal of a year, and perhaps even beyond.  There were many reasons behind my choice to...

Food & Fitness Friday – What I Eat in a Day 

I often read posts from others where they say what exercise they do, they go over their fitness goals, but you don’t really see what it is they actually eat to get where they are. I’m by no means at the stage I want to be just yet, but I am feeling happier and healthier on a day to day basis and am starting to see results so I thought...

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 – Beef Stew 

One of the things I find most difficult about healthy eating during the colder autumn/winter months is finding something warming and yummy which is still healthy. Beef Stew ticks both boxes and is quick and simple to prepare in a slow cooker.   Ingredients:  Onion  Carrots  Green beans  Diced beef  Flavouring packet  Water  Method:  Put the diced beef into the slow cooker  Cut the carrots and onions into chunks and...

Foodie Friday – Healthy Eating – Simple Steak 

This week marks the start of me actually following my healthy eating plan I blogged about last week. It’s been tough, especially when I’ve had not much sleep and I’m rushing around in between Benjamin’s feeds, but I’ve made an effort to stop snacking on junk and to start cooking healthily again.  One of our go to meals is what we refer to as simple steak. It’s pretty straightforward, we...

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...

Foodie Friday – Healthy Chicken Curry 

It is no secret that I love curry. I could live off Indian and Mexican food for the rest of my life, no problem. Takeaway curry is so expensive and really full of oil so as often as possible we cook our own curries at home.  As I’m pregnant I’ve been trying to up my iron intake lately at the advice of a doctor as I’ve had some dizzy spells....
