Last time out I spoke about how 2019 was on a weight loss side. Spoiler the first 10 months weren’t good… But from October onwards I was able to get a grip of things, but I was concerned December was coming and everyone gets that holiday weight and seeing as I was entering my second...

How was my weight loss journey in 2019?
Oh, well this isn’t going to be the easiest post to write about… I had all these lofty aims at the beginning of 2019, from fitness to the blog, but most importantly my weight loss. I had aimed to be at my desired goal at this point, but it didn’t happen. Here’s the story. Gaining... Continue Reading →
The positives of working in the same company as your partner
Hello once again! This is a bit of a random post, but I wanted to chat about it as it is all positive! So early in December Victoria got the opportunity to work in the same company I work for (a University) doing the type of work she was doing previously (video production). It was...

Is it possible to spread your blog too thin?
I don’t often talk about my blogging as I just like to write things for people to read on the internet, but I was looking at my blog a little while ago and I started to think about whether or not I post too many things about too many different topics. Have I spread myself... Continue Reading →
5 things I have noticed about being a back of the pack runner.
When I started running I was pretty slow… This was to be expected from someone who was over 26 stone and had not run much before. This meant that for the first few (read many) races that I participated in, I was at the back of the pack for the majority of the time. As... Continue Reading →
Monday Thoughts: Did I make the right choices after University
A few Mondays ago on my Monday Thoughts I brought up things I notice and think about on my walk into work each day and during one of those walks in I thought about Graduations (I work at a University and Graduations are happening as we speak) it made me think, back when I went... Continue Reading →
