I have not posted a blog since April and I really don’t know why. I am off to Kilimanjaro tomorrow and I am both scared and excited about it. It’s a six day hike and we expect to be at the summit on the 1st of January, 2019 (the perfect way to s... Read more

I love smoothies, but sometimes making one can be a miss. Today’s smoothie was definitely a hit. It was inspired by an article I read yesterday about the health benefits of frozen lemons. So this morning, after a wonderful 7.2 mi run and a 30 mi... Read more

I have noticed that when my body is not well nourished, when I get careless with my diet, I crave sweets ALL THE TIME! I understand that this happens when one is overfed but undernourished. To break my love affair with sweets, I cleaned up... Read more

So today is my birthday, turning 45 and feeling awesome. Started off the day with a 6 mile run at 3.45 am. Why so early, you ask. Well, I knew the rest of the day was going to be crazy. I'm reporting back to work today after my annual leave. Aft... Read more

I had a very confusing experience today - I met a lady that I had not seen for about three weeks. The first words out of her mouth were "You have grown fat!". Now that was totally confusing to me. I saw this lady just three weeks ago. I weigh my... Read more
