Good food is good for the soul. I wish to take care of yours. You are important to me. I don't know what to say. You're worth the effort and time. Every scoop of the spoon, every crack of the egg. You are worth the hour it took to bake. ... Read more

1) Whenever the heck you want. You do not owe health, fitness, or a particular body size/shape to anyone. 2) Whenever the heck you want. If the thought of slogging through yet another session fills you with dread - don't do it. 3) When... Read more

I am an introvert. Sometimes even the thought of social interaction takes more energy than I have. So last night after a gym induction so sexist I’m still struggling to contain my rage (that’s a-whole-nother blog), when I had to decide between g... Read more

One of my friends was pregnant, but lost the baby girl at around 20 weeks. She’s only 22cm head to toe, 5cm across her shoulders. I know she’s not my baby, and I can’t even begin to imagine what my friend must be going through, but it has real... Read more

I knew it was a bad idea. I knew I would regret it. But I did it anyway. After 2 weeks of taking it easy to get over my virus, this morning I stepped on the scale. I saw 12 stone and my heart plummeted. I never ever wanted to see that number ag... Read more

I don't know if it's the miserable weather today, or the come-down after my best friend came to see me last night, but I feel terribly lonely today. I was hoping to go for tea with another friend but I've still not heard back from her. I'v... Read more

I actually, really did it! I'm FREEEE! I have hated my job for nearly 2 years and today was my last day. Ever. I got down to the car park at the end of the day and felt such a mix of emotions I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I went ... Read more

I finally have some time for a blog! So, the mind-blowingly excellent news is that I have a new job! I have signed so many documents my signature no longer looks right, sent off every piece of ID I own, completed a medical questionnaire, an... Read more
