New Term, New Start!

New Term, New Start! Hello! I haven't written a post for a while so as I now have a little more time, I can catch up with my website. Work has been really busy over this year which is great but leaves little time for writing and such like. I have just returned from almost [...]

Self Care, it’s not selfish….

Self Care, it's not selfish.... I have not written a post for a while as, last year, I became quite overwhelmed with life in general really. I was extremely busy work-wise (which is great!) but sometimes you get so busy looking after other people, you forget to look after yourself. I just did not feel [...]

My first Ultra – Kielder 50K

Malta Marathon 2017

Malta Marathon 2017 A couple of years ago I decided not to run any more marathons. Last year I missed it! So I booked on to the Malta Marathon as it fell on a weekend I was free. Last October I started on a low carbohydrate, high fat diet so I was unsure how this [...]

The low carbohydrate, high fat diet continues…

The low carbohydrate, high fat diet continues... Three months ago I decided to try to change my eating habits for a number of reasons (see previous post about LCHF eating).  I thought I would write an updated post about how things were going.

The low carb, high fat diet…on trial

The low carb, high fat diet...on trial I have been eating a low carb, high fat diet now for exactly one month. Here is how this journey of healthy eating began. What is it? The low carb high fat (LCHF) diet is basically cutting out most of the carbs from your diet (including all sugar) [...]
