For lots of people, January means a fresh start or perhaps trying that little bit harder to eat more healthily and fit a bit more exercise into their lives. Eating healthily can often come across as being very¬†expensive though, and I think that probably put lots of people off, or gives them an excuse not to bother even trying! Working out how to be healthy on a budget is not always that easy, and it can take a bit of… View Post

I haven’t written about fitness for quite a while now, and that’s because over the summer I’ve barely been doing any exercise, which is wonderful. It is usually over the winter that I end up hardly doing any – I have less energy in the winter and it’s cold and dark, so I find it harder to make myself just get on with it. So I don’t know what happened this summer, but I haven’t been able to make myself… View Post

I have only ever played ‘proper’ golf once in my life, and I was (unsurprisingly) absolutely atrocious. Mini golf or crazy golf is about my limit. So when A and I were invited to an event to help with getting kids into golf in Leeds, I thought it would be fun, and I think it’s always a good idea to encourage kids to take part in sport for both the physical and the social aspect.

Unfortunately… View Post

My relationship with running over the past few years has been a bit up and down (ha!). I take part in Race for Life every year and so once I’ve signed up I start *thinking* about going for a run so I get used to it, and because I’d really like to start running regularly. Last year I think that happened once before the race, and this year it didn’t happen at all, but somehow it was’t tooo bad, and… View Post

I’ve actually been pretty unhealthy over this last month. I don’t know why but I’ve had a massive craving for biscuits dunked in tea – it’s like it’s the middle of winter or something. I have also barely managed to make myself exercise at all, it’s so annoying. Particularly because I know that as soon as the sun comes out properly and I have to bare more skin, I will wish I had started much earlier. Plus it’s Race for… View Post
