What They Don’t Tell You About Uni…

Having just finished uni myself, there is a LOT I'd wish I'd known before. If you're about to go to uni, or even if you've been, I'm sure you'll relate to some of these... You don't need to spend hundreds on the books that they recommend. I remember in my first year of uni feeling… Continue reading What They Don’t Tell You About Uni…

It's true that the last mile is always the hardest. Hands down this past two weeks of uni have been very difficult for me in terms of my motivation.

The importance of setting goals

One thing that I have learnt since I started taking my fitness seriously, is to never underestimate the importance of having a goal to focus on. Time after time I would aimlessly wander into the gym and do the same thing every day (cardio, of course) and wonder why I wasn't seeing the results that… Continue reading The importance of setting goals

We aren’t all self-obssesed…

Probably one of the most important blog posts that I've written, and I think this is something that needs to be said. Along with the fitness lifestyle comes the association that those who dedicate themselves to living this way, are self-centered, self-obsessed, and vain. Here's why this simply isn't the case. First of all, I… Continue reading We aren’t all self-obssesed…

Edamame Pasta Dish

I've recently¬†become so¬†obsessed with using pasta alternatives such as edamame¬†or black bean spaghetti! I prefer it to whole wheat spaghetti, as it actually offers nutritional benefits such as 22g of protein per 50g (amazing!) plus it's also lower in carbohydrates, with only 16g per 100g.¬† Also, it is gluten-free, vegan, and a great source of… Continue reading Edamame Pasta Dish

Uni is 50% organisation and 50% hard work. If you manage to stay organised, and on top of essays, presentations, and exams...I can assure you, you will be fine! What with exams only a few weeks away for most uni's, I thought this post would be very relevant. It is crucial¬†to stay organised, as there… Continue reading How to Stay Organised at Uni

How to Feel Confident in a Gym

I completely¬†get that Gyms can be scary places at times. There is nothing more intimidating than when you're first starting out, and it feels like everyone else around you knows exactly what they're doing, how to work everything, and you really don't. But everyone feels like this initially, the key is to keep going. I'll… Continue reading How to Feel Confident in a Gym
