My New Way Of Life

My New Way Of Life

My boyfriend put his arms around me this evening and exclaimed 'you feel thinner!' That felt good! I am half a stone thinner, which is no mean feat, but I'm also leaner, less fat, more muscle. As my second week draws to an end (it's day 13 and there is a cheat meal tomorrow - hurray), I am starting to realise that this [...]

Day 2: Kind of a Mess – Fit Body Boot Camp Birmingham

Day 2: Kind of a Mess – Fit Body Boot Camp Birmingham

I'm awake and I'm hungry. Ergh! Right, I've just made my breakfast of smoked salmon omelette (2 eggs) with spinach and chucked it in this funky pot which should keep it warm until I get to work. 9:00am In work and it's breakfast time. I have some coffee made with coconut milk (no dairy allowed), which actually tastes OK. Better do some work. [...]

Day 1: The Seminar – Fit Body Boot Camp Birmingham

I've made the decision to join Fit Body Boot Camp, Birmingham. I was persuaded to do this by the partner of a friend of my boyfriend. Her brother runs the boot camp (are you keeping up) and she does the Marketing. The anticipated results are impressive; I've read between 12-24 lbs lost over the period of the 6 week transformation programme. Though you [...]

Room Tour of The Sunborn Yacht Hotel, Docklands London

Room Tour of The Sunborn Yacht Hotel, Docklands London

I've been to London a lot recently and on one occasion work booked me in to the Sunborn Yacht Hotel in Docklands London. I've never been on a cruise ship before, so I was intrigued to board and to be honest, it was pretty much like a regular hotel. I'm sure it might feel different if it were bobbing through the waves, or, [...]

Zombie Apocalypse Training: Gym Motivation

Zombie Apocalypse Training: Gym Motivation

I don't like going to the gym. Some people do. They get a rush and they do multiple classes in one session, but I am not one of those people. However, I understand the need for regular exercise, despite doctors this week claiming it has very little effect on obesity (I am not obese though). So, I've had to rationalise it in my [...]

New Aussie Bodywash Review on YouTube

New Aussie Bodywash Review on YouTube

I've been posting on YouTube again. Check out my review for the new Aussie bodywash. Purveyors of fancy-smelling shampoo, Aussie, have come out with a new line of bodywash and well, I wasn't the most impressed with it. Watch my review below!

April Fools Day 2015

April Fools Day 2015

Happy April Fools Day 2015. It's just gone 9am and I've already happened upon several fools. You can read about previous fools from years gone by here and here. The first one I spotted was the Go Ape Tree Top Segway Experience. They sent me an email this morning and I was immediately suspicious, but I do actually think this was quite a [...]

7 Things I Learned About Relationships in 2014

7 Things I Learned About Relationships in 2014

2014 was a good year for me. I learned a lot about myself and others. There were some interesting lessons about relationships. You can be with the right person at the wrong time. A few years ago a friend of mine broke up with her boyfriend. After several years apart, but remaining friends, they got back together and are about to buy their [...]

Finally Stopped Procrastinating: Back On YouTube

Finally Stopped Procrastinating: Back On YouTube

After the wonderful catalyst that was a bloke coming in to work to motivate the team, I decided to stop procrastinating and realised that the time is now to get back to making videos. So, here is hopefully the first of many... Need to try and figure out the light though. It's still not right.

UPDATED: I Really Like You! The Carly Rae Jepsen Revival?

UPDATED: I Really Like You! The Carly Rae Jepsen Revival?

Last I heard of young Carly Rae Jepsen was that she'd happily retired on the royalties of Call Me Maybe and was residing in the same gated community as Toni Basil and Rick Astley, where Rebecca Black has a small condo too and Meghan Trainor is viewing property. If you're not getting the hint, I am implying that she is a one hit wonder. [...]
