  • #Claires40days

    5th March 2014

    After eating lots of Pancakes yesterday from my recipe, I started to think back to when I was at primary school and how we celebrated it, and then gave things up for lent. I went to a CofE school, so we had assembly and prayers everyday, and we would bring in cans of food for lent to give to…

  • The Lead Up To Xmas…Diet’s On Hold!

    15th December 2013

    10 day until Xmas… where has the time gone?! Like most people, I prefer the lead up to Xmas rather than the actual day, which is over quickly after boring TV and too much food. Now I have Chunk, Xmas has much more meaning to me, and it’s so hard to believe that this time…

  • My Weight Loss Journey: Week 2

    1st November 2013

    This week I was my usual, unorganised self, so didn’t manage to download my shopping list or the recipes for the menu plan before I did my weekly shop.

My old, gorgeous clothes keep staring at me from behind the fat…

  • Post Pregnancy Body Woes: Pelvic Floor & Stretch Marks

    22nd August 2013

    It may have been 17 months since I gave birth, but the pregnancy has still left its mark on my body, both inside and out! To be fair I’ve not exactly been racing to get fit, and I’ve not spent hours preening myself with various products to help get me back to my former, less…
