Some months ago I bought a NutriNinja. Buying some new kitchen gadgetry always runs the risk of just having something else to clutter up the kitchen work surface or find itself consigned to the dusty confines of the loft, however this particular gadget has held on to it’s pride of place next to the food

A 333 calorie fast day and why I stick to the 5:2

Share Button

I have just entered my calories for the day in to MyFitnessPal and the calorie count comes to a very satisfying 333 calories. And by satisfying I mean the number being all threes, rather than me feeling replete. Not that my dinner wasn’t delicious, a peach and feta salad (180 calories): Lunch was carrot and

Today’s blog post brought to you by the colour green

I had forgotten how tough Pete’s circuits class is, but my body has definitely been reminding today – my quads are screaming. I’m glad I got to go to yesterday’s class but I’m not sure my muscles have forgiven me yet. It was 16 stations and we did 45 seconds work and 15 seconds rest

I hadn’t realised how long it was since I last blogged until I came back to start again. Time is an odd thing – as Gretchen Rubin said, ‘the days are long but the years are short’ and before you know it months have gone by. I am not going to go in to why

Never skip the stretches!

Share Button

So there I am dutifully doing my Davina Fit in 15 and getting along marvelously well, when one day I think to myself, well I’ve done arms today, I am going to skip the stretching bit. All is fine, until I get up the next day, lean over the sink to clean my teeth and

Refreshing summer drinks and alternatives to alcohol

Wow, I must get back in to good habits. I’ve been slack on everything but work lately. But all work and no play makes for a very grumpy person. I need to get some ‘work/life balance’ back in to my life. I am still sticking to the 5:2 and the weight has definitely stayed off,

My ‘Work Out of The Day’

Share Button

Five pounds lost now! Yay! I know this is only 1 more since the last update, but this pattern of weight loss is fairly typical for me and it averages out at a pound per week, which is what I am aiming for, so I am happy. What also makes me happy is that I

Me and My Fitbit

Share Button

I thought I would blog again with my FitBit findings from my first day back at work today. I had to go to our London head office and I chickened out of getting the train due to the horrible weather and the fact my laptop bag and all it’s paraphernalia weighs in at least 5kg

Confessional blog post about alcohol

Share Button

How easy it is to fall out of good habits and re-establish bad ones. It has been so long since I blogged because this is a pretty hard post to write. I managed to be teetotal for two whole years by telling myself I would never drink again, which I think is why it is

Has anyone seen my wagon?

Share Button

Our trip to Las Vegas was amazing, it really was a trip of a lifetime! Trouble is I ate ALL the food! I also fell off the wagon in spectacular fashion! I’d indulged in a drink (or actually many drinks) at my birthday party (well you’re only 40 once aren’t you?) but that did rather
