Top 5 Websites for Looking After You

For today’s Self Care Sunday post I wanted to share with you 5 of my favourite Self Care websites, for you to peruse on this gorgeous Sunday evening. Personally, each of these websites has had a positive impact on me in a variety of ways – from helping me learn how to gain better control…

Self Care Sunday Book Review

Sometimes things come to you in just the moment you need them. For me, that was Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly. I’d read this a few years ago but I didn’t fully appreciate it until I re-read it whilst I was going through my divorce. It wouldn’t be overstating it to say that it helped to…

Chia Seed Pudding with Blackberry & Lime Coulis

Rich in Vitamins B2 & E, this tasty breakfast is a great source of antioxidants and fibre and is super quick to prepare. Perfect for those who don’t always have time for breakfast in the mornings!     * I got this recipe from Rep’s magazine who got it from The Detox kitchen Bible. I…

Spicy Chicken Stew

It’s lunch time! And rather than having a boring (and usually tasteless) ready made sandwich, why not try out this tasty and healthy chicken stew recipe? It takes at most 30 minutes to cook (less time depending on what type of rice you use) and can be made the night before so all you have…

Greatist Risk Challenge Summary

Day 24 – Started a secret project Well as you can guess from the title this isn’t something I can talk too much about yet, otherwise it wouldn’t be a secret! It’s something for my business that I’ve been toying with for a while now and decided to dive into. I’ll be working on it…

Greatist Risk Week 3 Round Up

Day 15 – Postural Assessment and Corrective Exercise (PACE) Course Possibly the dullest title for a course (and Risk Taking headline) ever. I promise you it was more fun than it sounds (unless you’re not into learning about posture and corrective exercises, but who isn’t??) and a Risk as I felt my lack of knowledge…

Quick Circuit Workout

Here’s my first video workout for you all! This is a quick Circuit exercise made up of  4 Exercises, 4 Rounds, 10 Repetitions of each move. Go straight from one exercise to the next as I have and rest at the end of the round for no more than 40 seconds. You can do this…

Greatist Risk Week 2 Round Up

We’ve reached the end of the second week of this challenge and if I’m honest, this week hasn’t been quite as successful as the first week. I only took on 3 out of 5 challenges purely because of a lack of planning on my part. I’m pleased with the challenges I did do however and…

Cashew Beef with Sweet Potato Noodles

I’ve adapted this recipe slightly from Everyday Paleo and not going to lie, it’s pretty delicious. Using the sweet potato as a base instead of noodles or rice is a fantastic alternative as you don’t feel so heavy afterwards and it adds a little extra sweetness to the dish. The vegetables stayed crunchy (nothing worse…

Greatist Risk Week 1 Round Up

So I finished my first week of the 30 Day Take A Risk challenge and overall I really enjoyed the experience! Certainly I got out of my comfort zone and felt resistance and frustration but I achieved everything I set out to do and I’m really pleased with that – usually I would just back…
