My sister was over from Ireland for a week or so and my eating plan got a little sidetracked but not too bad. Starting yesterday I got up at 6:30 and headed to the track for 1.5hrs of walking/jogging before my first lesson at 9am. I did thi... Read more

When I was in the last classes of primary school I had two major health scares when I underwent surgery for peritonitis and a small bowel obstruction in the space of 6 months. Fast forward to 2004 when I was 38 weeks pregnant with my daught... Read more

Weekends are traditionally a time to relax and take it easy. So far so good! The problem begins when weekends become the time to undo all the hard work that has taken place during the week. I have started to fall into that trap myself. I s... Read more

I don't know about you guys but there is so much information out there about what to eat, when to eat it, how to eat etc that it can be a little overwhelming. I have said before that it's my personal belief that the greek motto "Everything in mo... Read more

For the last few months I had been waking up every single morning with a backache. It doesn't matter which side I lay on either how much or how little I slept for... It just hurt and I hate it because I know it's because I've gained weight and I... Read more
