Being Body Positive Whilst Also Losing Weight

I’ve been a bit slack of late. Since dental surgery a few weeks ago, my diet hasn’t been that great as I try to find things to eat that doesn’t cause more injury or harm- it’s quite difficult! Along with it, I’ve been terrible at the fitness side of things. Not sure if the weather…

Advice for new mums…

Honestly, I’m probably not the best person to give advice on having a baby and what happens next as I’ve only had one baby, a baby, my baby, little Emily who isn’t so little anymore, but in the eyes of just about most, is very little, but I do think there should be some kind…

Walking Club in Ramsgate who’s with me?

So a few months ago, a friend and I were thinking of setting up a walking club of some sort. Obviously at the time everything was so weather dependent but now that the sun wants to stay, walking more and enjoying this fine coastline and fresh air seems like a great idea. We had originally…

Just a little rant…. 

There are some things that I just don’t get other parents doing. Am I being a snob to disagree? But there are just some things that some parents do that are just not ok. I have to get it off my chest after seeing it happen for the third time in less than a week….

Did you suffer from Scanxiety?

When I was pregnant I had about 8 scans, all through the NHS, none of them paid as extra services like some people do. But even though I didn’t pay for scans as extra services that I needed, I still had what’s known as Scanxiety. The phenomenon is dubbed ‘Scanxiety’, with 36 per cent of…

Funny what a difference a year makes 

It really is amazing what can happen in the space of a year. This time last year, I was sitting on my bed in my room listening to the commentator awarding the school kids at sports day in the field next door. I knew very little people, pretty much no one, whilst Sam worked in…
