If you're frequent user of social media you'll be no stranger to the negative comments and feelings of inadequacy that can come about through using it. A few people I follow have used the platform to expose some of the comments they receive on a daily basis, and the harmful effect it has had on… Continue reading Self-image – From a psychology students perspective.
These posts seem to be getting later and later :') Since starting my third year of uni, I feel like my dissertation is taking over, but I know it will be so worth it in the end! Also, how is it Christmas next month?! Crazyy! I was only able to find a few things this… Continue reading Foodie Finds – October 2018
How are we at the end of August, already?! I feel like ever since uni ended for summer, that I haven't actually stopped :') Still, I'm feeling ready to go back and take on the third year! I'm also looking forward to September as it's the start of new beggings (and my birthday! 😉 I… Continue reading Foodie Finds – August 2018
First of all, I would just like to say that getting 'summer ready' shouldn't be your only focus when it comes to going on holiday and enjoying your summer. I think we are so quick to focus on getting 'bikini ready' these days, rather than looking forward to the actual holiday itself. Remember, you're on… Continue reading ‘Beach body’ ready – is there such a thing?
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 all know the feeling when you've had a lovely dinner, but you would love something sweet after, that won't make you feel guilty. I've created my go-to greek yoghurt 'desserts' for when the sweet cravings are real! Also, they taste pretty similar to the actual desserts I've based the recipes off of, without all the… Continue reading Greek Yoghurt Desserts
What a fab month July has been (although slightly worrying that I'm halfway through my uni summer break already). I wish this weather will never end, as everyone is in such high spirits for once (so long as you don't mention the World cup!) I found some different goodies this month, so I hope there… Continue reading Foodie Finds – July 2018
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…
Thank you, UK for actually giving us a nice summer this year! This is the first summer that I'm actually thankful that I've booked a holiday for later in the year, so to make the most of this lovely weather! Overall, June has been a pretty good month...and not a bad football score either (not… Continue reading Foodie Finds – June 2018
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
