Anyone who knows me knows I like a drink…and of course I am not talking H20, I’m talking alcohol. I started drinking regularly when I went to Uni, having only really drunk a few times in my teens, one time at my 16th birthday party resulting in puking over my neighbours fence and snogging the…

On a hot summers day after a long hard race, do you collect your medal, meet up with your loved ones and then head for the nearest pub…or is that just me? Now I have always liked an alcoholic drink, ever since going off to university and discovering snakebite and blackcurrant (or pints of purple…

So last night was the much anticipated and eagerly awaited UK Blog Awards night, a classy red carpet affair in a Central London hotel where I would find out if my much loved (by me anyway) blog had won the coveted prize of being named Best Individual Health Blog. I had been quite nervous about…

Apologies in advance, I have consumed a can of red stripe and 3 brandy and diet cokes, so can not vouch for the quality or cohesion of this post. So my last post was about that stupid doctor who told me I was too fat to run a marathon. Granted I had gone to see…

To say I am busy at the moment is somewhat of an understatement. My daughter turned 1 this week, and despite the fact I have had all this time to get used to being a stay at home mum I seem to be busier than ever, and squeezing more and more in. Last night I…

So there are two bits of research on Obesity that I have come across today that have given me something to think about, whilst at the same time given me an excuse to post this picture of me and my siblings (oh plus a random cousin) and my mum. I am the one in the…

If I think back to all the crazy antics I’ve got up to in the early hours of New Years Day over the years, wow it makes me shudder and smile in equal measure. A couple of years back I actually saw two “Happy New Year” moments as I crossed a time zone in South…

I am writing this post with a thumping headache and we are now two whole days away from my evening of excessive drinking. I have just been out for my 5k #onebigfatrun (a day late I must add) and it seriously almost nearly killed me. I guess I’ve always had a problem with booze since…

I am FAT and I RUN so it’s hardly surprising that I have knee pain right? Cos everyone knows that running seriously takes its toll on the knee joints particularly if you are overweight, have bad form or crap trainers. So considering my weight and the amount of running I have done over the past…

So I have been trying to pull together a chronological list of races I have participated in over the years and I have just realised the single most funniest 10K experience I have had has never been written about. My two besties will kill me for exposing them..but girls it has to be done, after…
