Project Bridesmaid #6

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 #6

Feeling Calm #15

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. 

Towards the end half of last week I was still feeling quite anxious, but I’ve picked myself up and am now back to me. The weather is good, the sun is shining and I’m feeling great. I’ve still found it therapeutic to pick my 10 moments from the past 7 days and here they are;

Lots of puddles to jump in

This Plus That Equals…. #9

This plus that equals…. why I’m not cut out for exercising.

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week I thought I’d share the reasons me and exercise do not mix well, obviously I know it’s good for me, so I’m making an effort to do more of it, quite specifically cycling, but I do really think that it’s got it in for me.
