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, […]

I Need to Eat…More?

I Need to Eat…More?

I have had a super, super-busy week – it’s been my first week back at work after a bit of a break, I’ve been bringing some freelance projects to an end, and…I’ve been on a couple of dates. (Very exciting!) Which is why I’ve been […]

What Do I Eat?

What Do I Eat?

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been asked twice what exactly it is that I eat over the course of a day, a week, a month, etc. Obviously you guys have seen some of the highlights (mostly just because they’re pretty) but it’s not […]

It’s Not Just About Weight Loss

It’s Not Just About Weight Loss

Don’t get me wrong – when I first took those footsteps into the gym, it was all about weight loss. I was never a depressed, shy, or insecure fat girl, and I didn’t want to lose weight because I hated myself, or how I looked. […]

Motivation and Maintaining Your Goals

Motivation and Maintaining Your Goals

I think I’m one of those people that does their best to make life difficult for themselves. I think that’s taken as read when you decide to do a PhD – in anything – and on top of a job? Well, that’s just a fool’s […]

Why Am I Writing About Fitness?

Why Am I Writing About Fitness?

My name’s Katie. I’m 24 years old. I’m attempting to do a Literature PhD on top of a full-time job (because let’s face it – a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.) Fortunately it’s a job I love, so I’m very lucky in […]
