Thinking of reducing the amount of meat that you eat this year? Well apparently you’re in good company as around 1 in 3 Brits are cutting down on the amount of meat they eat (Source: NatCen 2016) and some of the biggest food stores are now even creating special sections that help make the ‘flexitarian’…

Now I must admit I choose my trainers a bit like I choose my cars…as long as they are the right size, get me to where I need to go, and are in a colour I like it’s all good. My first pair of running shoes cost me £25 out of a low cost sports…

In 2013 shortly after having my daughter Rose, I went along to my local business development agency for some advice about turning my blog “The Fat Girls Guide to Running” into a business. A middle aged man with grey hair and a suit that looked older than me said, That ain’t a business love, thats…

I was joined by some fab ladies from our community, including our Virtual Assistant Sharon (she’s the one who deals with enquiries about…

Did I ever tell you the sad tale of the running machine that lived behind my front room door? No? Ok, here it is…. A few years back I thought it would be a good idea to buy a running machine, I’m not exactly sure what prompted it because I didn’t have any children at that…
