Upper arm - 32.4cm
Wrist - 17cm
Low chest - 84.5cm
Waist - 79.5cm
Hips - 112c... Read more
Last night I sat down and ate a whole bag of sweets in one sitting.
I don't feel the slightest bit guilty about it. They were the most delicious thing I have eaten in over a month, no quest... Read more
I ran the Great Scottish Run 10k race today, and am therefore too knackered for a full-on blog.
My legs hate me.
It was a fantastic atmosphere at the race, even though I was far too tired and had leaden legs before we even started. I'm g... Read more

It seems that comment last weekend has affected me more than I realised.
"You're not used to active stuff, are you?".

Mm. Peanut butter is THE most amazing thing I have ever tasted. I am in heaven right now. Seriously.
I was going to do weight and measurements today, but my TOM is most decidedly on the way and for the last few days I've been puffing up li... Read more
I have decided. Sensible is boring and logic is overrated: I'm bringing back peanut butter first!
I heart it so much, I can't go a day longer than absolutely necessary.
So I'm at the end of Whole30. Thank chocolate for that. I could go o... Read more
What. A. Weekend. Gosh my head's still spinning.
I'm going to get the bad parts out the way first so we can all forget about them.
Number 1: I have spent an entire weekend in the company of the 2 skinniest women I know. And not even s... Read more
I can't believe I'm going to the festival tonight! It felt like years away when I booked it. I'm actually quite nervous about it. Kizomba is my weakest dance (being the newest) and I'm going to a festival full of experts who have been dancing it... Read more
I thought the last week of Whole30 would be a doddle. I thought I would be so used to it I would just sail through and find myself at the end, no worries.
But it's actually turning out much harder to stick with than it was at the start. I wan... Read more
I found myself all of a sudden in a spiralling bad mood. I was absolutely raging at I didn't know what. I made myself feel better by applying for some jobs. One day I will get out of this place.
Salsa classes start back up today, hooray! Al... Read more
One week to go! And I still haven't had that magical mindset shift. I could not do this for the rest of my life. I miss every single thing I'm not allowed to eat. Even soy. I do get hungry between meals, shaky-hungry, and I need the 2 or 3 snack... Read more
Well, what a couple of days I've had. Yesterday was our yearly Freshers Salsa4Water party, for which I had (in a moment of madness) agreed to make 60 cupcakes. It should have just been a simple 5 batches of 12, but that doesn't take into account... Read more
I was right, it was kale making me feel ill. So that's one superfood I will just have to live without. I'm gutted, can you tell?
I tried making some paleo spicy tuna cakes today. They are tasty but there's a bit too much citrus in there for... Read more
So yesterday happened. But now I'm calmer I can see the small victories that I was too worked up to notice yesterday.
Someone posted a really thoughtless, (I hope) unintentionally-hurtful comment on yesterday's blog, but instead of getting ... Read more
So, today was...not ideal.
Long story short; I was booked in at a renal clinic. I expected them to go “Oh yes, now I see the scars on your kidneys you told us were there ages ago. You may go”. They didn’t.
The official term is ‘chronic... Read more
