Clash of the Titans

After having an amazing time interviewing Alex Danson, I headed up to Kingston Park to cover the Clash! 
Clash of the Titans is the first big match of the year, against Newcastle University, so it was a huge day!


September Update: My 1YRWL PLAN

Hey Everyone!

I am so glad that uni has started and I have enrolled on the third and final year of my course! 
I also paid for my year's gym membership upfront so I can focus on studying and my weightloss goals without worrying about the bill coming out every month! (I always get worried I haven't paid it!)

TN Hockey meet Alex Danson!

Yesterday was one of the best days of my year so far. I got an email asking me to do something for my sports internship and I immediately said yes and stuck my cameras on charge. When I woke up that morning I had no idea I was going to meet an Olympic athlete...

How saying yes changed my life this month...

Saying yes can be a bloody terrifying thing to do sometimes. Other times it can get you doing stuff you never thought you would do.

September has been a month of ups, downs and so many fresh starts to so many things in my life. I was determined to make the most of this start to the new academic year and told myself 'just say yes'. Say yes to more things and try to not always be so negative! 

So what ended up happening as a result of this?

A raw honest post about my depression

Sometimes it is really difficult to be honest with yourself. To know when you've truly had enough of something, rather than continue fighting it.

For me, I always try and try again. I'm stubborn as hell, I may throw a hissy fit but I will try again. I try not to quit things if I can.
I put up an instagram story about how I was so excited for September. That has been true for months. So much change was about to happen to my life in September and I was yearning for it...

I'm a huge fan of all natural products. This face mask is one for everyone to try and if it was a good enough face mask recipe for Cleopatra, I was going to give it a try! ...

Bespoke Jewellery with Diwah

Getting to design your own jewellery is probably something a lot of people don't think they'll ever get the chance to do.
To create something for yourself is a really awesome experience and I was lucky enough to be asked to by Diwah...

1YRWL PLAN: Month 1 Update!

I am currently on a 32 day streak on Myfitnesspal. Finally getting going again after a disastrous couple of days with no wifi or 4g, losing my 180 day streak. sob.

Month one has been a bit of a mess. Let's be honest, how much exercise could I do commuting for three weeks and in an office? Not much!

However, my weight has stayed the same which is a real blessing in disguise. I might be upset, but at least I haven't gained weight!

Month 1 has been getting the ball rolling on my plan- sort of an admin month really.
I've been sorting out all the necessary things I'd need to sort for the upcoming month and anything that may be of use to my blogging it as well.

So this month I have:

  • Organised transferring gym to the uni one so I will actually go. It's right on campus next door to my lectures!
  • Spare cycling kit has been ordered and any necessary maintenance for my bike is being done on a regular basis.
  • Working out my budget when it comes to my food shop. I always overspend on food or buy lots of rubbish so I've been working out my budget better so that I know how much a healthy shop should cost once student loan arrives! going to prove that I can be healthy on a low budget!
  • I've been to the doctors and got help for my urticaria. I have also put into motion getting a PPC so I can order my prescriptions easier and quicker and cheaper! I DON'T WANT MY HEALTH GETTING IN THE WAY OF MY GOAL!
  • Taken a 'slow but steady' approach to my weightloss. Small steps are better than none. So I've been forcing myself out on my bike once I returned, at home I got off the bus a stop or so early to walk back. I'm trying to make more mindful choices of what I eat and taking notice of when I'm not feeling great and trying to find other ways of making myself feel better. 

So September, the month where I can finally start to do some good!
Tomorrow I'm signing up to Northumbria's gym Sports Central, and that' where I will be working out from now on. Until I get the all clear from the doctor I won't be swimming though. 

My Goals for the next month:

Gym 3x a week
Cycling 2x a week
Stick to my 1290 calorie count everyday
Aim for 750 cals exercise a day

Wish me luck- and if you're interested, you can follow a more up to date version of what i'm doing over on my fitness instagram.
