The Fitness Diaries June 2019 – Falling off the exercise wagon

The Fitness Diaries June 2019 – Falling off the exercise wagon

I am so far off the wagon, I can’t even see the wagon! Month four on my fitness journey has been what most would deem as an EPIC FAILURE. Trying to keep all to my commitments while sticking to exercise has not worked in June.

There’s been no Couch to 5k training program, no gym sessions and no weights. This is not good, in fact, it’s worse than that – how could I let this happen?

Like I’ve said before these posts about my journey are not preachy, it’s just one girl on a mission to feel happier in herself.

Join me as I share my journey, work outs and motivations, or lack of them, in June!

The Fitness Diaries May 2019 – The Garden Gym

The Fitness Diaries May 2019 – The Garden Gym

Month three on my fitness journey has been all about balance. Trying to keep all to my commitments while sticking to exercise has been hard.

There’s not enough time in the day to fit everything in. But, rather than give up altogether, I’ve stuck to the Couch to 5k training program, adding in gym sessions with weights when I can.

Like I’ve said before, it’s not preachy, it’s just one girl on a mission to feel happier in herself.

Join me as I share my journey, work outs and motivations as I run my way through May and discover the garden gym!

Making a leather satchel with The Makers Guild

Making a leather satchel with The Makers Guild

Ever thought of making a leather satchel? It’s not often you can say the garment or bag you’re wearing is one you’ve hand made yourself.

I attended a course at The Makers Guild – a leather workshop which teaches you how to make a satchel.

It was an incredible experience, take a look at the journey from punching holes to stitching the bag together.

The Fitness Diaries February/March 2019 – A sweaty journey begins

The Fitness Diaries February/March 2019 – A sweaty journey begins

This is what the end of a workout looks like for me. Red, sweaty, certainly not what you’d see on Instagram, but very happy. This picture is the very start of my fitness journey.

If you’re looking for super glossy fitness inspiration then this series of posts may not be for you. But, if you want a very real fitness journey that’s (hopefully) motivating, then stick with me because it starts here.

I’m going to be sharing my journey, including my work outs as I move from not fit to fitter!

An evening of mindfulness with Wagamama at Gunwharf Quays

An evening of mindfulness with Wagamama at Gunwharf Quays

[AD] Recently I was invited for an evening of mindfulness and conversation to mark Wagamama’s partnership with mental health charity Mind at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth.

This was a gifted dinner but, all opinions are my own otherwise what’s the point?! You can’t buy my opinion and I firmly believe talking about mental health and that breaking the stigma surrounding it is very important!
