    I’m coming to the end of my training programme with UP Fitness. It’s a bit bittersweet because while I’ve done good, I know I could’ve done a bunch better. But at the same time, I’m pleased with my slow and steady progress. I’m well on my way to being summer time fine! One of the things I’ve loved about this process is that I don’t have to weigh myself for…

  • 4 Ways to Get Back on Track After F***ing Up

    I’ve got about four more weeks left on my UP Fitness programme and I’m disappointed in myself. Usually, I throw myself into something and give it 100%.

    Happy Monday! I’m back my bi-weekly update on my fitness journey with UP Fitness. So let’s talk about what I love and what I don’t. I love the workouts.

    Today is our anniversary! Jason and I have been married one year today and it’s been a year! It feels like it was yesterday, and we were finalizing all the details, getting the invites out, selecting the menu, making sure everything was ordered and then getting ready on the actual day.

  • 7 Things I’m Leaving Behind in 2018

    I sit here writing this on a cold and dreary Friday. It’s that funky time of year when you really don’t know what day it is or what you’re supposed to be doing.

    Well, Christmas is over. Are you thrilled? Sad? Still eating and drinking?? I’m done with Christmas food. I love it but there’s a reason we only eat it once a year – it’s decadent AF.
