Project Bridesmaid #5

So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.

I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you. Continue reading Project Bridesmaid #5

Deep Heat Roll On

When I started my little project to be a healthier, slimmer and fitter Bridesmaid next year, it wasn’t just about diet to help me lose weight but also about adding exercise into my routine.

As I’m not one for massive amounts of exercise I was pleased when Deep Heat got in touch kindly suggesting they send me on of their new Muscle Massage Roll-On’s, just in case I were to need it.  Continue reading Deep Heat Roll On

Help Kids Run Free

As the London Marathon gets ready to celebrate its millionth finisher, UK charity Kids Run Free invites schools to get their pupils active and healthy with Kids’ Marathon.

UK primary schools now have the opportunity to join the next phase of Kids’ Marathon, the innovative programme that has been praised by the 40 schools currently participating as a sustainable, affordable and achievable sports programme. Kids’ Marathon inspires children to be active on a regular basis and Kids Run Free has secured funding to offer the initiative to more schools for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Feeling Calm #11

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

There was a chance he thought this machine produced Easter eggs

This week has been far better than last week, I have started working on myself a bit more, making time to meditate and to exercise and I’m looking forward to a weekend away so that helps, even if the evil that is Easter advertising has turned my child into an egg demanding monster!

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #11

Get Fit and Donate Your Skips

The Nation Goes Skipping Mad For Sport Relief #SureSkipathon is aiming to get Brits donating one million skips. With a fun app that you have to beat get skipping, get fit and have fun for Sports Relief.

Did you know that skipping is one of the happiest sports as two thirds of Brits find it impossible to skip without a smile on their face (62 per cent). I am one of those Brits, it is true, I am rubbish and I find skipping with the app almost impossible but I was smiling, sweaty and gross, but smiling.  Continue reading Get Fit and Donate Your Skips
