    Life In Pain

    Imagine waking up every morning, unable to sit on the toilet or bend over the sink to splash water on your face until you’ve been up and walking about for at least half an hour. As some of you may know, if you follow my Instagram, I’ve spent the last week in hospital due to herniated discs in my spine. This is a more personal post than usual but I thought I’d share what’s been happening in the hope it will help people understand what it’s like to live with chronic pain and hopefully sharing the experience will help someone else feel less alone with what they’re going through.

    Victoria Sponge (well not quite)

    Scan Bran….. You either love it or hate it and I must say, I quite like it! Now, please don’t expect this to be like a proper Victoria sponge because it’s not but as far as low calorie cakes go, this is a decent one! Scan Bran makes quite a squidgy cake but it’s heavy, not light and fluffy like a proper sponge. I had half a cake as breakfast and could barely eat lunch which is not like me!

    That Weird Week

    Another year is nearly over and we’re currently in that weird week between Christmas and New Year where you don’t really know what to do with yourself or what day it even is. I’m failing miserably at getting back on the Slimming bandwagon but desperate to get back on the yoga train as I literally hurt everywhere! I think the food side I can slowly work on as I clear the crap food from the house and start to refill my fruit bowl with actual fruit instead of chocolate oranges and the pile of sweets that it is currently housing. The exercise part is going to start again today though;…

    30 Day Yoga Challenge Results

    As you may have seen from Instagram and/or previous blog posts I challenged myself to do a 30 Day Yoga course that I found on YouTube. Well tonight, I completed it. It did take me slightly longer than 30 days because I have had to miss the odd day due to not having time to fit it in (usually weigh in night) but I always picked it up again the next day.
