Ferritin, you bloody thing!

So it turns out that  I am in desperate need of increased ferritin levels. My last blood test reading revealed  a level of 20 whereas the recommended level is between 75-150. In other words, not great. I think it may be due to all the years as a vegetarian to be honest, in particular since…

Weather should not and does not stop me (anymore!)

Last Friday I met a “gym friend” while working out at the gym and we took a short break to catch up as it has been a while since we saw each other last. This guy is a super friendly, outgoing and chatty person who was one of the first people that I spoke to…

Back to normal again

Below, yet another example of an easy, relatively cheap and very yummy lunch! Easily achieved by finely chop raw cauliflower (my food processor gave up on life a while back, so I am back to the traditional trade of chopping board and a workout with the knife!), broccoli and however many cloves of garlic that…

Last university assignment of 2018

I am currently typing up the last psychology assignment for this year. I am developing a study which will be investigating exercise and attitudes towards this.

Ideas on how to battle everyday challenges

We all face different obstacles in our lives. As a matter of fact, each and everyone of us battle a broad variety of difficulties on a daily basis. Some of these obstacles are challenges provided from the outside world and some come from within. No matter where these challenges come from, we always have the…

Saturday efficiency

Yesterday was amazing, quite emotional but mostly lovely to finally meet up my friend again after being apart for years. Unfortunately she is going back to the US again tomorrow morning, but at least we have managed to update each other on all that is important in our lives. Much needed, and so much love….

Friday, kale and old friends.

I bought some amazing looking kale yesterday and have decided to try to make kale chips! I have never tried to do it before nor have I tried kale chips so it will be an interesting challenge for the weekend! Other than that, an old friend of mine is visiting from the US so myself…

Back!

So, I have not been updating for quite some time. There is an explanation for this, and that is that I found my biological family and it sort of hit me quite hard. It has taken a lot of time to adjust (naturally in the most amazing and lovely way) to this new family setting…
