Recently, I have actually been starting to enjoy the gym. I know, right? Me from 6 months ago is like WHAAAA?! But since I’ve started going 4-5 times a week, I’ve realised that my fitness wardrobe needs a serious overhaul. I literally have two outfits that I just have to wash after every visit and alternate- this is not acceptable. I finally forked out on some Nike Free 5.0 trainers in the Office sale a couple of weeks ago, and they have been one of my best ever investments (and a steal for only £45!) so I think I need to start as I mean to go on and bring the rest of my gym wardrobe up to date, starting with some fairly inexpensive basics to get the ball rolling. I’ve been trawling some of my favourite sports gear websites, and these are my favourite picks so far. View Full Post

I’ve never actually gotten round to writing a proper post about my journey with IBS, but it’s something I’ve struggled with for over 7 years now, and it’s been a pretty huge part of my life during this time even though I’ve tried my best not to let it. I’ve tried so many things to try and manage it, but nothing has ever worked and I had kind of resigned myself to the fact that it was just something I’d have to live with. However, before Christmas last year I heard through Twitter about Scarlett’s experience with the York Test, and I couldn’t believe I’d never heard about it before. I was having a pretty bad flare up around Christmas time, thanks to all the crap food I’d been eating, and was pretty desperate so me and George decided that it was time to make an investment in my health and get the test done.

Feeling Meh title pic

With Autumn fast approaching, the British weather has been somewhat disappointing of late. The knicker-flinging excitement of the hot OMG let’s put floaty summer dresses on and sunbathe now weather we had in July is long gone, and I don’t know about you guys, but the inbetweeny-ness of it all makes me feel a bit meh. Of course we’re all entitled to this feeling whatever the season and even if your life is super-duper charmed, even if you’re the Queen, there are times when you just feel a bit icky and you can’t really explain why.

This is probably my least favourite feeling like ever because you don’t even know why you feel that way. All I know is that there are a few little things that I sometimes do when I’m feeling like this and it makes me feel a thousand times better.  View Full Post

Fitspiration Ultimate Running Playlist

It’s been a while since I wrote a post in my Fitspiration series, but with my first 10k run fast-approaching, I’ve been back in the saddle (or sports bra) to prepare myself for this huge challenge. I can’t believe I have been blogging for over 6 months and have never mentioned anything to do with my taste in music- I love music, and it is a huge part of my life- and it’s time to share my (slightly very eclectic) playlist with the world. I physically cannot run without music- even when I’m running with someone, talking is just not the one when hurling your sweaty self around. It has to be motivational, and keep me running when I feel like giving up, so without further ado I present my ultimate running playlist! View Full Post

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend- mine was very exciting and eventful which I’ll explain in a later post! I wanted to tell you all that I’ve signed up to run my first ever 10k- the Race for Life in Harrogate on Sunday 14th June- to support Cancer Research UK. This will be my third time taking part, but the first time I have ever ran further than 5k in an event! Now it’s all well and good posting my Just Giving page all over social media and asking people to sponsor me, but I wanted to write a post explaining why I am running and why as many people as possible should get involved.
