7 days of yumminess – My foods to fuel

I love seeing or hearing about what people eat. Am I nosey, curious or interested in learning what people choose to fuel themselves with, probably all of the above! So I thought I would join this cohort of health bloggers and share my foods for this week.

First let me state that what I ate this week was not pretty, not sexy and definitely not photogenic. It is however reality. I find it difficult to make a plate of green veg, meat and brown rice very pretty. But that’s not what I am here to do. Don’t get me wrong I adore pretty food, hence my addiction with Instagram. And while I often try to take decent pictures, vegetable soup with a tin of salmon can only do so much for me!!!

30 before 30


So lately on Instagram I came across a #30before30 and I loved it. I thought it was such a great way to really push yourself.

This is where I started thinking about all the things I have done over the past year. At first I couldn’t think of much but once I put pen to paper the list started to expand.  I felt this list would help identify all the small but great things I am doing, rather than allowing me to focus on the things I am not doing. Time to change that mindset, focus on the positives and there wont be any time left for the negatives!

Floating or Fading through week 1?


I have been through week 1 or day 1 of my ‘diet’ for as long as I can remember. So this time it was just day 1 of my healthy eating lifestyle. That’s it, a lifestyle, not a diet, not a quick fix, no food restrictions and no hunger. In the last year or so iv realised its all physiological. If you tell yourself you are on a diet, then your brain panics. All you can think about is food; when is my next meal? what will I eat? how many calories will I consume? And finally the biggest one of all, that constant strain on the brain, the guilt!! This time I’m not putting myself through it.
