Not only did I do it, I ran the entire thing, with the exception of … Continue reading If I can do it, so can you!!
Where to start?! ... OK I think running progress should come first because I still can't believe my trunks are up to 6.5km running with no breaks!! I mean that is literally bonkers, I have never been any good at running and I certainly don't have the usual physique of a runner BUT I am … Continue reading Believe and achieve
It's hard to describe the feeling you get inside when you feel failed by your Doctor, I don't mean just the once but time and time again. Imagine trying for years to lose weight, to starve yourself, to excerise endlessly, to spend hundreds on fad diets and shakes and find that after all of it … Continue reading Lipoedema, Lipedema or ‘The Fat Disease’
