Making better food choices

fitness

I’m not sure if you realise, but our diet makes up about 70% of our success (or lack of) when it comes to losing fat. I don’t know about you, but I love food. I love tasty food. I love potatoes. I love junky type snack foods! I don’t really like fruit all that much, […]

Fit Yummy Mummy Team Challenge

fitness

Wow, it’s been some time since I last posted and I have to say, things are not looking pretty with me right now. I had a pretty tough year last week, mostly brought about by the birth control pill I’d been taking (if you’re taking Yaz or Yasmin, please stop taking it NOW!), and when […]
