I love soup. I could live on soup (clearly I don’t, but I could) I love tinned soup, chilled soup, home made soup…although I draw the line at packet soup. I just find it so convenient, and I never get bored of it. I often make my own soup, but I’m not the greatest cook…

So this is a post I have thought about writing for a long, long time. And today seems like as a good a day as any to pluck up the courage and simply write it. I am often asked, what will you do when you lose all your weight? when talking to people about my…

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…

I never used to like drinking tea. Mainly because growing up I hated making it for people when they came over to visit…the same applied to when I worked in an office setting…I’m sure people made tea just to get out of doing any work. But then that all changed after having my daughter, and…

Oh no….it’s already happening. Easter is still a few weeks away yet the supermarket shelves have been stocked with eggs of the chocolate variety for months and over the weekend my daughter arrived home from her dads with a chocolate bunny…pester power at its most rampant hey?

Well, that got your attention didn’t it? Which is ironic really because that’s kind of the point of this particular blog post rant. You may (or may not have seen) whats been going on via social media over the last few days in regards to a new online diet plan/book being launched by Australian Nutritionist…

My alarm went off at 6am this morning and I was extremely tired after having a very restless nights sleep dreaming about cream cakes, biscuits and chocolate. Now this is not a normal occurrence for me, I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but also do not unnecessarily restrict my intake of such things if…

Now I don’t know about you, but there is something kinda cool about having sore muscles after a run, also known as DOMS (Delayed onset of muscle soreness) it reminds you that you have actually done something, that your muscles are doing what they should be doing. But sometimes I do wish the soreness would just…

So this is probably not the first blog post you have seen about Huel…the new food replacement product which has been cleverly branded as THE FUTURE OF FOOD!!! In fact the brand were in the press just this week looking for someone to give up food for a whole year as an experiment to see…
