What now?

Inez talking to Baby M in her buggy

So, although I’m not feeling like things have been going well this year, I’ve now done my ‘A’ races. This year has not been the year for me to do an Ironman (not least for financial reasons), but I have managed to do a 5km (3.1 miles) swim, a 100 Read more…


Eating healthily and trying MYHK

MYHK pea risotto

I’ve been working hard to eat healthily this year. I’m fortunate enough to be supported by The Athlete’s Palate, but it’s still hard for me.

I’d been hoping to share this post with you a while ago, but I’ve had more than my fair share of setbacks. Firstly, I had a cold and then Baby M hit the dreaded ‘4-month sleep regression’ early (cue waking every 45 minutes at night!) Finally, my beloved MacBook Pro’s Read more…

Scrambled egg on toast with cheese

If I’ve done a workout, but it’s a while before my next meal, I often have a snack, just to take the edge off my hunger. (This is part of my nutrition strategy!) I quite like to have a protein shake or some yoghurt with protein powder, but sometimes, I Read more…

Flat lay of white sportswear with some bathroom scales

In the last week, I’ve seen loads of adverts on Facebook about losing weight through running. Whilst I believe that starting to run can help to kickstart weight loss for many people, it’s not usually a long-term solution for weight loss… if it were then I’d be wasting away by Read more…
