How to fuel your fitness goals with Gatorade

How to fuel your fitness goals with Gatorade

What are your favourite Summer memories? For me my favourite summer memories are going on holiday with my parents to America! The warm weather, the theme parks, the food and drink we couldn’t get in England! I remember trying Gatorade Orange for the first time in America and using it to fuel my mad running around Universal Studios and driving my parents mad! Back then, you couldn’t get it in England and it would annoy me so much knowing that I couldn’t order American food and drink here in England! Fast forward to now and summer is nearly here and…

Whistlejacket and my main weight-loss motivation

Whistlejacket and my main weight-loss motivation

Seeing Whistlejacket for the first time… I remember the first time my Aunty took me to London for a weekend of sight-seeing. With family friends in London, it was going to be a weekend of galleries and museums. I remember thinking how boring it was going to be, looking at boring old paintings. What I didn’t realise is that I would happen across my now favourite painting in the world, and one that would be linked to a life-long love of all things equestrian. The painting Whistlejacket. Whistlejacket is a painting by George Stubbs from 1762, of the racehorse owned…

Fitness | 25 by 25 and Starting my weight loss journey

Fitness | 25 by 25 and Starting my weight loss journey

25 by 25. This is my weight loss goal. 25lbs weight loss by my 25th birthday. So that’s around 16 weeks left. I’ve been carefully watching my diet and trying to exercise more. At the moment most of my exercise is coming from redecorating the house! A lot of hard graft getting the place cleaned, gutted, walls prepped for painting and then the painting itself. In the next few weeks, I’ll be moving in properly and then the Ikea furniture struggle will begin again! I decided it was time to make a big change when I realised that I had…

5 things I learned on todays’ bike ride

5 things I learned on todays’ bike ride

Today I finally got off my butt and out on my bike. I’ve been meaning to but I seriously struggle to get out the door. I’m trying to work on my self-efficacy over the next few months and especially on holding myself responsible for my own life and decisions. Part one of that journey: starting my weight-loss journey by getting out on my bike more often. I haven’t been out on my bike since 2017!! Whilst I was out on this ride, I finally had time to myself to just think. So here are a few things I learned on…

Say Hello to Teemo!

Say Hello to Teemo!

Hey there! Welcome to this very cute and fluffy post. If you follow me on any of my social medias you might notice I’m slightly dog obsessed. I’m forever retweeting and sharing some sort of cute animal video but dogs especially get me.  My personal facebook is the worst for it, most of the things on my timeline is me sharing videos of cute puppies or animal rescue videos.  I’ve always been an animal person, and dogs are definitely up there in my top 3. I just love the bond you can have with them and the sense of freedom…

Pushing past the procrastination- making time for exercise!

Pushing past the procrastination- making time for exercise!

Procrastination is honestly my biggest problem at the moment. I have so much going on right now with sorting my life out after graduation- flat hunting, packing and full time job hunting that I kind of don’t have spare time. However, I do seem to find the time to watch Netflix and TV everyday. I have a confession to make… I watch between 3 and 4 hours a day of Netflix or TV minimum at the moment. I honestly feel like a bit of an addict when it comes to TV series. Whilst spending a lot of time at home…

A Dene Day with Dora and Gem

A Dene Day with Dora and Gem

On Thursday I headed off for a walk with the two lovely labs that I borrow.  They are called Dora and Gem, Dora being the younger lab and Gem the slightly older.  Since uni ended I’ve been getting out and walking more, and trying to spend more time outside. So, we went for  a walk down to Jesmond Dene through a couple of other parks on a nice hour long walk. I love walking these two as they can be let off lead to wander and explore but also follow commands. It’s so much more relaxing walking a well-trained dog! …
