Morning Routine (version 23.4)

morningroutine2

Oh how fickle I am. I¬†love routine yet crave change. Well, so long as I’m in charge of both of them ūüėČ Since discovering how much happier having a solid – if, somewhat elaborate – routine makes me: I’ve tried many, many variations. It’s been a hot minute since I last shared a day-in-the-life type […]

My Experience With Reverse Dieting

My Experience With Reverse Dieting-02

Be prepared for one of my geekiest posts yet. Ready? OK. So… what the heck is reverse dieting and why would you want to do it? “Over repeated bouts of calorie restriction, your metabolism takes a beating. When you drop calories too low for too long, your body intervenes on several fronts. Most notably, it […]

Experimenting With Carb Cycling

A Carb Cycling Experiment

No, this isn’t quite as exciting as blowing up potatoes and turning loaves of bread into rocket fuel. My kind of experimenting with carbs is a little more… reserved. To get a little background on what I’m on about, I recommend checking out my full post about carb cycling on the lovely Amy Rutter’s blog¬†– […]

How I Got Out of My Workout Rut

Workout Rut

As much as I don’t like to admit it, I’m a creature of habit. My workout ruts will come and go as the seasons do: they are inevitable and uncontrollable (at least at the time of writing. I’m sure Google and/or Elon Musk are¬†working on it.) As the mornings grow darker and colder (and if […]

A Healthy Morning Routine (Interview Series #12)

Healthy Morning Routine

  On with our healthy morning routine interview series!¬†Today comes from Ann (aka @deliciouslyhealthyfit). Let’s go! Q:¬†Do you have a morning routine? Can you share it?

A Healthy Morning Routine (Interview Series #11)

Healthy Morning Routine

I never really got that expression: “Red sky in the morning; Shepherd’s warning. Red Sky at night; Shepherd’s delight.” I like red skies¬†at anytime (then, I’ve never had to lock after sheep…) and we’ve seen some beauts in London town lately. Until yesterday¬†morning. The drizzle is back and l fully bailed on my morning walk. […]

Kindess (+ October Goal)

Kindness

I must confess I’ve had my goal set for October for a good week or two now, right up to this morning ‚Äď when I changed my mind. Originally, my goal had sprouted from some very motivated, very type-A thoughts of mine. These thoughts were¬†along the lines of: I need to try harder. I get […]

September in Review: Sharing My Journal Entries…

Sharing my journal

Ok so remember how my goal for September was to journal every day? (You don’t? Shame on you!) Well, I did pretty well, I think I only missed a few days ‚Äď despite some being utterly dull… Anyway, I¬†thought sharing my journal entries for this month’s review made sense!   It’s definitely more scary to […]

A Healthy Morning Routine (Interview Series #10)

Healthy Morning Routine

Now, I try not to fall into the British stereotype of having nothing better to talk about than the weather… But what EVEN is this RAIN!? Oh to make matters worse I don’t have an umbrella and refuse to buy one because 1) I’ll lose it by the end of the week 2) or break […]

The Guilty Pleasures of a Healthy Living Blogger

Guilty Pleasures

We all have our guilty pleasures, right? Whether it’s that tub of Ben & Jerry’s in the back of the freezer, singing in the shower to Bieber, or (still) crushing on Duncan from Blue (ahem…) we have our little secret loves. No shame in it. I’m all for doing what makes you feel good, and […]
