Hey all- I am back :)
I have had some really amazing feedback on this little page and actually a fair few requests for things people would like to read about. I think that is so amazing- that I (yes me??) am able to inspire some people.
So the most requested post has been a post about what I eat.
I am very much a believer now in that in life you have to have a balance. You can't be good and diet 100% of the time and still have fun and *live*.
I often find my social life comes in the way of me wanting a healthy lifestyle - but I do know that that has mostly been an excuse to keep stuffing my face with crisps and cream cakes ;)
I think if you live your life with an 80 / 20 approach you can't go wrong. By that I mean that if you are good and eat well for 80% of the time, then you can afford to be a little naughty 20% of the time.
This approach has worked for me for years and years, so I shall keep following it.
Sadly after I had my second baby, I just had no real motivation to get my pre- baby body back, so he is now 1 year old and I still have at least 1 stone (at least I say, ideally I'd shed 1.5 stones).
People do say to me I look fine, and I know my shape and size is not un-acceptable, but I don't feel great in myself, which is the most important thing, isn't it?
So I'll show you here what I keep in my cupboard and fridge and what I eat in a typical day, hopefully this will be helpful.
These things can always be found in my kitchen:
