The Psychology of Getting Fit

The Psychology of Getting Fit

If there’s one question I get asked a lot (second only to ‘How did you do it?’) it’s this – ‘do you feel different?’ Usually the people asking that question are referring to the physical side of it – and yes, I feel completely different. […]

A Trip Down Memory Lane…

A Trip Down Memory Lane…

I’m so uncomfortable. Three years of hard work, and I’m stuck here, sweating, trying not to breathe so I don’t bust a shirt button under my graduation robes. This ought to be one of the best days of my life, and I just want to […]

Getting Off Your Ass

Getting Off Your Ass

Oh, some days are HARD. Really hard. Especially when you’re a scary hormonal cowbag, like I was earlier this week. I’m not gonna lie guys – I’ve been wandering around the office, trying my level best to conceal my deranged wrath at nothing in particular, […]

…A Gluten-Free What?

…A Gluten-Free What?

Escaping Emotional Eating

Escaping Emotional Eating

I’m an emotional eater. No doubt about that. That’s pretty much why, when I had two broken legs, I ballooned in weight – it’s the way I deal with that stress. It’s also why I’ve always had snacks on standby when PhDing, because – believe […]
