Get Out More Often – A Challenge for Today

What are you doing today? Are you at work? Stuck in the office until 6pm this evening? Are you in the car? On the train? Off to visit relatives? Travelling to a meeting? Maybe you’re at home with a huge list of household chores to get done (like me)? Go out and explore the woodland down the road.

Fun Ways to Keep Fit

Oh man has my fitness suffered in the last six months. Yes, I’ve done some hikes here and there but generally speaking I’ve either been sat on my motorbike, sat on my office chair at work, or sat on my sofa at home. An awful lot of sitting. And slouching. So it is time to

Three Days Without Chewing. My NOSH Detox Experience.

I was recently contacted by NOSH who had seen my various ramblings about food and bloating and energy levels and other things. They offered me the opportunity to try their three day beginner’s fast. They thought their juice detox would be the ideal way for me to stop, take a break, and give my eating

Medical ID on your iPhone

I think it is fair to say that all of us would like to think that if you were involved in an emergency situation that rendered us somewhat incapable for a period, a decent human being passing by would do their best to help you in your time of need. One of the things that

Review: Adagio Teas, Body and Soul Set

There is a fashionable trend around at the moment which suggests we should be drinking tea for its health benefits rather than just its ability to quench our thirst. It’s no longer good enough to drink tea just because you like it; a plethora of varieties have hit our shelves, claiming to do us some

Team Bear Grylls Member and Merrell ambassador Lizzie Webb has a life people like me dream of.  A thrill-seeking micro-adventurer, Lizzie has been packing her rucksack and heading outdoors since she was a child. Nowadays Lizzie displays her passion for the outdoors through her numerous excursions on the trail, paddleboarding sessions, and a variety of work trips with Bear.  As

Adding Exercise to a Busy Life

I am no fitness fanatic. Oh no. But I do like to keep healthy and I love to get active. But even with a passion for the outdoors, and a desire to be really fit, I know I am far from where I want to be – and most importantly I know I eat (a lot)

Some Goals and Challenges for 2015

I always find February an inspiring month. Lots of people I know are making real strides towards their goals for the year – some are marathon training, some have booked amazing trips, some are telling me about adventures they are embarking on, some have started new jobs, some are moving home, and some are doing all

{ Sunday Soliloquy } What Caught my Eye in the News this Week

[ so·lil·o·quy – the act of speaking one’s thoughts aloud when by oneself or regardless of any hearers ] Aside from all the very serious news of death and terrorism and politics and the economy, there have been a whole host of other stories in the news that have caught my attention this week. So I thought

Inducted into the Box

If you’ve been following me on twitter you’ll know that I have taken the plunge and I am now a fully inducted member of my local CrossFit box, CrossFit Witham in Lincoln. After all the encouragement I received following my blog post about my taster session, I have joined for one month to give me

Recipe: Cauliflower Rice… “Caulirice”

After the success of Courgetti, a vegetable alternative to pasta that has become a regular feature of mealtimes in our house, this week I decided to try another similar alternative. Cauliflower rice – or “caulirice” – is a low calorie and gluten free alternative to rice that can be used to accompany meals wherever you
