Last week Monday we had the first part in this blog post on nutrition from qualified nutritionist Nikki Haggett, if you didn’t read part one here it is and now on to the second and final part…so much good advice here, 6. Meal planning can be an act of self care – sometimes in the rush…

Are you done with seeing yourself as a failure? I 100% am. So yesterday I wrote a provocative blog post called To the Man in the Van Thank You, all about being shamed on Tuesday night when I was training out on the streets of East London as part of a CrossFit Session. The response…

For the longest time I have wanted to bring onboard a nutritionist to support women in my groups, but it has been hard to find the right one. Someone who understands that losing weight isn’t always the motivation behind running for some of us, and also someone who isn’t going to feed us hype and…

Did you know, the average woman in the UK spends 31 years on a diet You would if you have watched my recent TEDx talk all about how womens preoccupation with being smaller, has affected our ability to live BIGGER more fulfilling lives.

The irony of a very slow runner reviewing food which is marketed to help you go faster is not lost on me, however I came across Kate Percy at a conference a few years ago and she was so passionate about her product, it always stuck with me as a brand, and it has been…

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…

Everyday…and I do mean EVERY DAY I get emails from brands offering me money to partner with or endorse them in some way.
