Why I banned my phone from my bedroom (kinda)

I bought an alarm clock. Except that it’s not just an alarm clock. It’s a little glimpse of; a little grasp at freedom, independence and some well-needed down time. Now there is no way I could completely banish my phone from my room. This chronic worrier would suffer from chronic guilt if I was to…

A nice surprise

View this post on Instagram This week I had the most wonderful non-scale victory. After having a couple of weeks of trying to self-medicate my poor mood with a shit load of food, gaining weight and feeling incredibly guilty, I decided to order some new leggings. You know the kind, I'll order a size down…

Discipline

I used to sprinkle sugar on my cereal, now I sprinkle supplements. I buy expensive food because it says ‘protein’ on the packaging. I drink smoothies for goodness sake! I log and track every calorie and minute of sleep. So why is it that I can’t resist a bloody McDonald’s if someone suggests one to…

Summer Feastival 2018

On Sunday, we set off from the sunny Forest of Dean to a drizzly Cardiff but that didn’t dampen our fun. Those of you who know me and Sam will know how much we love our food. It basically formed our relationship and when we see a street food festival, you know we’re heading there…

A few thoughts on sexual orientation

Nothing annoys me more than someone assuming my sexuality (or anyone else’s for that matter). Not because I’m offended (my mother and father raised me not to be a f*cking bigot) but because firstly, it’s none of your business and secondly, I cannot wrap my head around how and why I’ve just been stereotyped.

Grenade Carb Killa – Birthday Cake

Protein bars, who needs ’em? Well me. I have ridiculous protein goals and a constant hankering for chocolate and candy, so definitely me. I love a protein bar and the almost guilt-free indulgence that stops me from always being on the brink of meltdown. Grenade have jumped on the birthday cake bandwagon and I was…
