    3 signs you need to eat more protein.

    Whichever way you look at it, protein is an essential macronutrient We can’t produce it ourselves and yet we need it to stay healthy, strong, lean and long lived. We can break down our existing muscle stores when times are hard but it’s far from an optimal approach. But the reality is many of us...

    Record Breaker.

    The other day I was lucky enough to get a ringside seat to watch Helen Barnes break a world record. Helen used to be an Olympic athlete and she recently broke the world record for the most number of rolls in a kayak in 1 minute. She managed an incredible 30 rolls, 1 every 2

    Why do people drive like that??!

    The other weekend I went to Cardiff for a bit of a boys’ weekend away Playing toy soldiers with my buddies really. But I like to try and make it sound cooler than that! Anyway, on the drive to Cardiff I was struck by how badly some people drive on the motorway. They bomb up

    They all stared at me!!

    There must have been at least 15 of them who all stopped and stared as I wandered out the changing rooms. Who? The Aqua Mums of course! I don’t know if that’s what they are actually called… But when I wandered out the changing room to the pool for a quick dip and a relax

    Arwen’s Strictly Blog – PAC Week One – What’s in an Inch?

    I write this full of excitement and anticipation as the launch of the new series of the “real” Strictly is on tonight.  Timing wise it has been great, we can totally identify with the nerves of the celebrities – although of course, we don’t have a dancing pro to help us!

    Lost weight with a meal replacement shake? You need to read this.

    I wanted to share this with you – it’s a bit of a long one but well worth reading. It’s not written by me but explains very well the problems (or some of them at least) with relying on meal replacement shakes to lose weight. I know they seem attractive, I get that I really

    Project Abbey Clancy: Week 1

    Welcome to my Blog which should probably be entitled “West Bridgford couple lose the plot.”  Instead I’ve gone with the far less obvious, but more inspiring “Project Abbey Clancy” for reasons which will become clear.   I’m a 36 year old mum and lawyer.  I’m also currently training...

    Eat less, move more.

    What crap advice. Generally given by people who are naturally slim and really don’t get why we struggle with our weight, right? The reality of course is it isn’t that easy.

    Wow!

    I’ve done some pretty stupid things in my time. I remember one long weekend away with friends I almost got arrested (actually I’d have probably got worse than arrested) after the German police saw me peeing up against the historic Munich city wall. Not a clever idea and I was pretty lucky the police...
