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. I am a very motivated person, but something is happening in these last couple of weeks - and I know for a fact by the memes… Continue reading Finding Motivation for the Last Mile…
First of all, a big sorry for the lack of posts on here! I think the festive period and the start of my dissertation got the better of me, but I've managed to organise my time...and now I'm back 😉 I was thinking about recognition and what gets others recognised, and it occurred to me… Continue reading Are We Wrongly Recognising?
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.

Also, it is gluten-free, vegan, and a great source of… Continue reading Edamame Pasta Dish

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
As Sunday is my get-sh*t-done day, I thought I would share with you what my weekly food shop looks like, so if you follow my Instagram (@jazzy_b_fit) you'll realise just how simple it is to make the meals that I cook. As I'm a student, I try to keep the cost of things fairly low, and I'll… Continue reading My Weekly Food Shop
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
