This week has been painful for more than one reason. The first part of the week was mentally painful, the middle part was physically painful and the end promises to be emotionally painful. I started this week by trying to update my website. It had been a very long time since I last updated my … Continue reading Pain
Breaking Up With Veganism
At the risk of angering the vegan police, I have made the decision to stop being vegan. I went vegan a long time ago (about 6 or 7 years) and a lot has changed in that time. There were a few reasons that I decided to go vegan in the first place but I have … Continue reading Breaking Up With Veganism
I have had a lot going on this week. With writing, trying to eat healthy, contract negotiations and planning for my next writing projects. All while trying to overheat in this ridiculous weather that we are having over in the UK. It has been a lot for me to keep on top of but I … Continue reading Complicated
This week I have been really focusing on my diet and activity levels for the first time in a long time. I used to be so good at eating well and exercising but I have picked up quite a few bad habits during lockdown that I was having trouble getting out of. This week I … Continue reading Healthy Eating
I Need A Holiday!
I know, I know. It wasn't that long ago that I had some time off but right now I just really need a break, even if it is only for a few days. I have a busy couple of months at my day job and I really would like to just have a bit more … Continue reading I Need A Holiday!

Next weeks temperatures are meant to get … Continue reading It’s Hot But It’s Only Getting Hotter
Even though we still have over a month of winter left I am already sick of it. I am sick of waking up in the dark. I am sick of the cold and the rain. I am sick of doing dog walks in the dark. I am trying to lead a more healthy life but … Continue reading Miserable Winter
Yesterday was blue Monday and though there is some controversy on whether this is a real phenomenon it is clear that January is a difficult month. Going back to work again after the Christmas break is difficult enough but adding to that poor weather and low funds, January is just miserable. I am trying my … Continue reading Blue Monday
End of Week 1
It is the end of the first full week in January so it is a great time to assess how I am doing and where I want to be by the end of the year. The first thing that I have been working on this year is my diet. I have now lost a total … Continue reading End of Week 1
Diet Day 0
I don't really like using the word diet because it has connotations of being this thing that people do for a small amount of time and then stop. However, I have a lot of weight to lose so I guess it is pointless to avoid it. Maybe I can start calling it something more cool … Continue reading Diet Day 0
