Day: The Common Sense Diet.

General Rules for the Common Sense Diet 

  1.  Don’t binge/gorge on bad foods: Treat yourself by all means, lifes too short after all. But know your limits. Eating a whole box of donuts might be a little overkill, but enjoying just one every now and then – and I don’t mean daily – is a thumbs up in my books!
  2. Drink water: It helps cleanse your system, keeps your metabolism in working order and quite frankly, we need water to survive.
  3. Exercise: You don’t have to workout every single day. God no! You don’t even have to workout for hours at a time, urgh! Three times a week can do the job – go hard for half an hour and you’ll notice your change in motivation and mindset, not to mention your body. You’ll want to do more, and by all means do… but don’t ruin it! I know I start to resent exercise if I get to a point where it’s forced. Enjoy it. Do or find something you love!
  4. Make better choices: If you’ve had a bad day and have needed a sugar fix every hour on the hour, then fine. But start fresh the next day. Every day is a new day. Don’t wait till the following Monday just so you can justify the rest of the week being sugar fuelled. Just let the bad day go, don’t stress about it, and wake up with a fresh head the next day. Of course if your bad days start outweigh the good, then maybe you need to take a closer look at why you’re reaching for the sugar… addiction is a b*tch.

Day: Women can like eachother.

I’m recently back from a weekend in the sun. And not a family outing either. Nope, I have just returned from a weekend fuelled by champagne, sun and the realisation that you literally can’t go ANYWHERE without spying local yocals from home. True story.

But what really  baffled me this weekend, is that for two beautifully long sunny days, 12 women were thrown together for a super special occasion.

Now, these occasions, when aided by sun, bubbles and tiredness – can sometimes end in tears. Maybe not quite tears, but there’s every chance you leave the ‘do’ preferring the idea of eating glass, whilst looking directly at the sun, stood in a sea of Great Whites – than ever seeing these people again. It happens.  Continue reading

Before & After tricksters!

Like many of us, following fitness account on social media can be (or so you think), motivating. Inspirational even. I’m guilty of stalking the best of them – and will continue to do so!

Now before I go on, I just want to note that I am by no means, undoing any hard work that I know MANY of these women put into their daily regime where their health and fitness is concerned, as it very clearly shows in their unfiltered, perfectly toned, perfectly defined and perfectly lit photos, that they have in fact, worked their butts off for the temple they call a body. For these women out there, I salute you.  Continue reading

Day: We got down with the kids

Hmm. I’m not sure how to feel about last nights experience. So Mr Snacks and I enjoyed a hiptastic (even just saying that screams “SHE’S NOT HIP…WHO EVEN USES THAT WORD!!!”) evening at the place to be, London O2 Arena, to see the man of the night, Drake. Now he IS hip. Hip… Hop, in fact!!!! *Actually p*ssing myself*.  Continue reading

Well, you better get over to CosyRoom Candles to grab yours now – before they’re all gone! *Super sorry not sorry for the shameless plug just there*  Continue reading
