This October I am taking part in Month of Miles to raise money for Diabetes UK. I haven't been running in so long so I am a bit nervous about getting back into it. One of my work colleagues Lynne has helped by sending me a couch-to-5K plan with some great warm-up ideas so this should definitely be useful. I have set myself a small target of raising £30 for Diabetes as I know there are many people who are struggling financially at the moment so any donations are really greatly appreciated. I've set my goal of running a full marathon over the month so 26.2 miles. This means I have to run just under a mile a day but I am going to see how I progress as the days go on (I'll likely do much more than this)!
I have recently stumbled across amazing content online from Elsa Rhae & Barron Link on YouTube, their websites, Apple Podcasts and their Instagram accounts. A video was recommended to me on my YouTube home page (thank you algorithm!) which I have embedded below. The video went into detail about isolation in their 13ft Scamp trailer which they live in full time and the effects of a winter snow storm on their daily lives.
Erbology reached out to me about their plant-based, organic products to promote health using natural ingredients. If you have been following my blog for a while now you will know I have been eating a vegan diet since May 2018 and I have seen a huge improvement in my health and energy levels since then. I really believe that how you fuel your body is so important and I was thankful that Erbology was able to provide me with a selection of their products to try and review.
With everything going on in the world right now it's more important than ever to find gratitude wherever possible. I wanted to write a blog post to let you know what I am thankful for within my daily schedule and things that I have appreciated more than ever since March. I think it's fair to say that everyone has been through quite a lot since March with work, finances, health, relocating, job uncertainty, stress and anxiety to name a few. Even though it might seem that things wouldn't get any better at times, I found it really helped to change my mindset on things as much as I could to be more grateful.
Hey there! Good evening. It has been a while since I have written a blog post on my website and I wanted to change that. I'm going to be honest, it was tough thinking of content to post on a weekly basis and I think that's what contributed to me stopping last Spring. Since then a lot has happened so I wanted to write a little 2019 summary post and let you know what is happening in my life. I have reflected on the past year and having been reminded of just how much I did in 2019 by my Photos app on my iPhone, I was blown away!
I couldn't recommend podcasts enough at the moment. They are the perfect break from everyday life and a way to escape and make time for yourself within busy schedules. There are so many available for free to listen to and I have learnt so much so far this year! I have popped five podcasts in this blog entry that I would recommend highly and a little summary about each.
I'm currently self-employed and primarily work for two companies in particular. One of these is a canvas and fine art printers and Christmas is definitely the busiest time of year for us. We are in our final week now of orders before the cut-off passes and we close until January. I am keeping this blog post short and sweet and will be back to regular posts and email newsletters from next week onwards.
I recently subscribed to Gousto which is a food delivery service. They portion all of the ingredients you need to prepare and cook delicious meals from their website/app. This results in no food waste and they are super quick to make as well (my meals only took half an hour each). I will be talking about my meals and the Gousto box service in this post!
