If there is one thing I refuse to promote, it is an unhealthy attitude towards food. I have discovered that this clean eating venture left me feeling hungry, grumpy and tired. Yes, I understand that this is probably through my own misunderstanding and lack of preparation. However, the whole way I went about it just did… Continue reading Reset
02/04/2016 Today was difficult. After what seemed an incredibly long and very arduous day at work, I was positively ravenous when I got home. I felt so tired and wanted nothing more than to scrap this whole idea and just order a pizza. I was so close too. I told myself that it wasn’t for… Continue reading Another Day
I think we can all agree that in this day and age, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet. In my mind, it is simple.

It has however, been two weeks since the hand-in now and I think… Continue reading Back on track

I feel as though this is a race I need to run. Those who know… Continue reading Nepal International Marathon 2016
The importance of perseverance I cannot tell you how often I wanted to skip my morning run (confession time… Sometimes I did), or how many times I declined social occasions because I needed to train. But you know what? It was all worth it in the end. It is okay to walk. I went into… Continue reading Things I Learned During My First Marathon
‘Life always begins with one step outside of your comfort zone’ ~ Shannon L. Alder I have taken steps to make active decisions to create the future that I want for myself lately.

‘Balance, peace and joy are the fruit of a successful life’~Thomas Kinkade I often find it hard to balance my responsibilities in life. As a full-time student with a part-time job, balance is crucial to maintain a healthy state of mind. Between my dissertation, my assignments, working up to 30 hours a week in the… Continue reading Balance
